IRRESISTIBLE REFRAIN
Two years ago everything changed for the remaining members of the Seattle rock band Tempest.
Two years is a long time.
Too long to keep on remembering. 
Not nearly long enough to forget.
In trouble with nowhere else to go songstress Lace Lowell seeks refuge with the band during their stop in New York City. It’s a risky move for her because they are both there, two impossibly good looking men whose lives are inseparably entwined with hers. One who bruised her heart and one who smashed it into pieces.
ENTICING INTERLUDE
To the talented vocalist Justin Jones, love is merely a game that he plays by his own rules.
But to Bridget Dubois, love and heartache are one and the same.
Broken too many times before, the delicate beauty keeps her emotions carefully concealed. Bridget has her own set of rigid rules when it comes to men. She prefers to avoid them altogether, especially dangerously seductive auburn haired emerald eyed players like Justin.
 
CAPTIVATING BRIDGE
Warren “War” Jinkins is that guy.
The bad one.
Tempest’s ex front man, an arrogant rock god.
The only thing larger than his ego is his capacity for self-destruction.
His bad attitude has cost him. His woman. His best friend. His band. Everything.
Shaina Bentley is that girl.
The good one.
Hollywood’s pink candy-coated sweetheart.
The star of Pinky Swear, television’s top rated teen show.
He’s a one man island. She’s a fragile captive soul.
Is love a current too dangerous to cross or will it be the bridge that brings them together?
RELENTLESS RHYTHM
The one she really wants is out of reach.
The one he really needs is already taken.
Dizzy Lowell, rhythm man for the rising rock band Tempest is a wizard on the guitar and a wonder with women. But the hookup specialist hides his emotional scars beneath his suave exterior. He never lets anyone truly touch him until he meets April Reynolds, the confident bartender of the Diamond Mine.
TEMPTING TEMPO
Sager Reed the strong and silent bassist for the rock band Tempest is well acquainted with loss. The thoughtful tattoos he designs only hint at his turbulent youth. He buries his guilt about it deeply within his troubled heart.
Melinda T. Belle is the daughter of a dysfunctional rock legend. Avoiding emotional entanglement, she has turned her back on nearly everyone and everything she has ever known. Alone, she tries desperately to find fulfillment in the one dream she has left, competitive skiing. 
Can Sager overcome his dark past?
Will Melinda realize her worth? 
Will they both see that love is only thing that really matters?

Just sex.
 
No commitment.
 
Then she begged me to promise her nothing would change between us. I couldn’t bring myself to lie to her.

They say the truth will set you free.
 
When the truth is revealed, I’m forced to look my demons dead in the eye. I don’t deserve her or her forgiveness, but I’d give up my life if it meant keeping her safe.

Life has a way of testing me. My life is about to change in ways I never expected.

Book Four: Over and Again

It’s been a hell of a year in New York City. Detective Cohen Bailey is determined to put Jake Bartlett, the last remaining threat, behind bars for good. To do that, he’s going to need all the help he can get. Their team is still reeling from almost losing two of their own and Cohen knows that if there was ever a chance to prove himself, this is it.

Brock Hart is a pinch-hitter for the Department of Justice, a mobile asset that moves with the big cases and steps in to clean up messes when they occur. Prosecuting isn’t all done in the courtroom, and Brock’s got a personal connection of his own to this particular case. Detective Cohen Bailey is attractive, competent and more importantly, half Brock’s age. Brock’s better off sticking to his long-time no-strings arrangement than risking it all on Cohen.

The more they dig into the web surrounding Bartlett, the more certain they become that there’s something bigger going on. Neither of them have the time to fall into bed together, let alone fall in love, but if there’s anything Brock’s learned it’s that sometimes, the best choices are the ones you don’t mean to make. 
480CBC6A-393C-4D4B-8A7B-D80E51EA0F1C

Over and Again is the final installment and the culmination of this phenomenal series. The books leading up to this one have resulted in an entire NYPD precinct put through an emotional and physical wringer after almost losing two of their own. There’s a constant need to stay vigilant and on high alert as one more psycho, Jake Bartlett, is still at large and most likely after Police Chief James Carter and US Attorney Derek Moore. These two men have been through a living hell, and their psychological recovery is just as painful as the physical harm done.

Knowing that time is of essence, Detective Daniel Callahan is doing his best to keep their precinct running with everything they’ve got in order to bring in Bartlett. Realizing it’s just not enough, they call in the big guns in the form of Brock Hart, Dept. of Justice. He’s hot as hell, smart, and determined to help nail the last threat to James and Derek.

The guys work relentlessly and leave no stone unturned while trying to find Bartlett. A major asset is Detective Cohen Bailey, who‘s also caught the eye of Brock Hart. I love how Cohen Bailey has really come into his own in this book. He has a lot more confidence and determination in his own abilities to put an end to this whole miserable case. And hot damn, Brock is one lucky guy because Cohen is one hell of an alpha lover—he sure is all grown up now!

There are so many twists and turns and action-packed scenes that had me biting the hell outta my fingernails. The best part of it all is how everyone’s involved in this finale: Derek’s parents, James’s son and girlfriend, Detective Daniel Callahan, who is a rockstar, his boyfriend, Peter, along with Kay and the rest of the entire precinct.

What I truly loved and will greatly miss is the incredible cast of characters Brooke Edwards has created. Each one brings so much to the storyline and they have become a familiar and integral piece no matter how big or small their part.

Over and Again ends just the way it should. Everyone’s gonna be okay because this zany, sarcastic, badass bunch of lovable law folk will make sure of it. No one goes it alone. Loved, loved, loved this series. Ridiculously well written by the amazing Brooke Edwards. Five-bittersweet-stars for me as this wonderful series comes to an end.

Book One: Mens Rea

James Carter is a career cop who married young, became a widower young, and then his life revolved around his son and his job. Young is a recurring theme, he thinks, when he meets the considerably younger-than-him AUSA Derek Moore. For the first time in years, James finds himself subject to the whims of his heart.

The path to love between a hotshot lawyer and a veteran cop was never going to be smooth, not in the real world. Criminals, misunderstandings and a complete lack of communication stand in their way too. Both too stubborn to budge, and utterly convinced that their feelings aren’t reciprocated, James and Derek themselves are the biggest obstacles to their own happiness.

A murder case might be just enough to force them to get their act together.

480CBC6A-393C-4D4B-8A7B-D80E51EA0F1C This short story sets up the direction and fills in the background of what you’ll soon find out is a fantastic series. The author provides a lot of info within a limited amount of pages. It’s extremely well-written, and I was very excited to start the next one.

Book Two: Law and Disorder

James Carter and Derek Moore fought their way through attraction and misunderstandings to get to where they are today. Sure, they’re still figuring out how to make things work between their careers and families, but their whole world is rose-tinted with the glow of new love.

Reality hits with the force of a speeding truck when a criminal starts waging a campaign of terror against the justice system. Suddenly law enforcement officers and lawyers all across the city are living in fear as their careers put them right in the cross-hairs of a deranged killer and James and Derek’s honeymoon period falls to ruins.

With James’s protectiveness driving a wedge between them and Derek pulling away as the target on his back grows even bigger, their future is thrown into jeopardy. While Derek struggles with demons from his past, it’s up to James to catch the killer and put them back on the path to their happily ever after.

 

480CBC6A-393C-4D4B-8A7B-D80E51EA0F1C

This installment is a continuation of James and Derek’s story. I think it’s worth saying that this story is as much a crime/murder/mystery as it is a love story.

James Carter is a forty-four-year-old NYPD police chief, whose precinct is filled with colorful, funny, complex, and intelligent co-workers. But now that he’s romantically involved with twenty-nine-year-old US Attorney, Derek Moore, his life has been turned upside down even more so when Derek becomes the main focus of a madman’s obsession. James’s sole concern is to keep his guy safe, but that proves to be a daunting task as the two stumble and flounder while attempting to navigate the uncertainty of a new relationship when there’s a killer out there!

I love the author’s writing style. It’s similar to watching a movie or a TV crime show. Each scene feels like the camera is fading to black, and I can’t help but think of the two musical beats used in Law and Order.

This series is something else! The cast of characters, no matter how big or small a part they play, add a perfect balance, resulting in a storyline filled to the brim with creative dialogue and painstaking attention to detail. The sex scenes are non-existent but are left to the readers’ imagination through teases of playful or sensual caresses and images of clothing strewn and tangled sheets. I highly recommend this series and can’t wait to start the next one. A Five-Star read for me.

Book Three: Cause and Effect

In the aftermath of a psychopath’s obsession-fuelled murder spree through New York, Detective Daniel Callahan feels like he’s been hit by a wrecking ball. It turns out that watching your best friend and your boss fall in love only to nearly lose it all takes a toll on a guy’s emotional stability. 

Peter Saracen has an out-of-control crush on the belligerent detective who seems to want nothing more than to toss him into a cell and throw away the key. When the body of an unidentified gang member is pulled from the East River and an old nemesis breaks out of prison, Peter finds himself on a whole new collision course with Daniel.

The line between personal and professional begins to blur. The dangers of the present take aim at the fragile possibility of Daniel and Peter’s happily-ever-after, while ghosts of the past threaten the deepening bond between Daniel’s boss James Carter and Assistant US Attorney, Derek Moore. With everything against them, there might not be any coming back from this.

480CBC6A-393C-4D4B-8A7B-D80E51EA0F1C

Loved this story of Peter Saracen and Daniel Callahan, the NYPD detective who Peter has been obsessed with for some time now. Peter puts himself in harm’s way by nosying around crime scenes and winds up needing protection. As the situation escalates between a killer at large and James’s man, Derek, the whole precinct is on edge, rightfully so.

Peter seems to be a balm to Daniel’s rough edges and worms his way into his heart. Again, this installment (or episode!) is action-packed and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. No single person is truly front and center as Brooke Edwards does another outstanding job bringing in the whole cast. Positively crazy about this series and can’t wait for the next. Again … another Five-Star read!

Author Bio:

Brooke Edwards is an Australian LGBTQ+ author and dreamer, slowly working her way through the stories that keep demanding (loudly) to be told. She’s hopelessly obsessed with procedural law enforcement shows, flawed human beings and coffee – not necessarily in that order.

A hybrid author, Brooke’s first books were released through Dreamspinner Press in 2015 and 2016, followed by self-published ventures in 2017 and onwards.

Seven years. Six hits. A hundred secrets. Syndicate leaders blackmailed. Wives and children set up to take the fall. A spy among the most dangerous of men. Sometimes seductress. Sometimes assassin. I’m the girl at the party everyone looks at, but no one remembers. I was trained to be ruthless, stripped of emotion and empathy, and yet something inside me, something logic and reason will never touch, yearns to be more than the beautiful facade crafted by my master. I want some part of the fantasy to be real. A touch. A kiss. A glance just for me. But none of it’s ever for me because there is no me. I am olvidado. Forgotten. Until I meet the one man who refuses to forget me.

For four years, I was hidden from everyone and everything I knew. I became a toy; a slave to be played with on a whim. He locked me away, robbed me of light, and forced me to live in the darkness.


He used me, abused me, and left me shattered. My screams went unheard, my tears went unseen, and my pleas went unanswered.

When the chance to escape presented itself, I fled. All I wanted was my freedom. All I wanted was to see the light once again. But when your name means Light, it makes the monsters want to keep you in the Dark.

Sold.Tortured.Abused

My name is…well, to tell you the truth I’m not so sure anymore. To my master I’m known only as ‘beauty’, a word that inspires magnificence, however in my mind it only imparts feelings of horror and helplessness. Stolen at just fifteen-years-old, I’ve been held hostage for three years now, my body no longer my own, my mind twisted into something I no longer recognize. Then came Hart, dangerously handsome, and frighteningly male. Instead of fearing this curious man like I should, I do something I never thought I’d do again, I trust him. And when he whispers my name, “Beauty”, it’s with such soul shattering tenderness it brings new meaning to the word. I more than trust him…I’m infatuated with him. We are the same, you see, our monsters match and our thirst for revenge is as sweet as it is deadly. 

My story isn’t pretty, but my vengeance is sublime.

My name is Oliver. I was a guard to Maksim Markov; king of the Russian underworld in Europe.

I’ve seen things that would turn a cast iron stomach.
I’ve stood by idly and watched endless acts of depravity.
I’ve created hell on Earth in exchange for fortune.
I’ve maimed, tortured, taken, and I’ve killed.
My mind is dark, my inclinations perverse, and my soul is black.
There’s no salvation for me—until Amaya enters my life; a raven-haired beauty with blue eyes that sparkle like sapphires. She’s the epitome of what my life isn’t.
I’m not worthy of her, and she certainly deserves better than me, but that’s never stopped me before.
When I want something, I take it, and right now, I want her—and I won’t let anything or anyone prevent me from making her mine.

Will their love finally die in the face of her ultimate betrayal?

Luna…
I thought our love would be enough to get us through forever. From the moment we met, our passion, our love, was explosive and consuming. My Andres is my rock, my love, my everything.
But sometimes love isn’t enough. Some things are more important. Now I’m doing the one thing I never thought possible. I’m running from the cartel, from my home and from my husband. I’m running for my life.
Andres…
Luna has been my light in the darkness from the moment I set eyes on her. She is my rock, my comfort, my only love. Her betrayal burns deep.
She can’t be allowed to live. The cartel, my family, they won’t sanction it. I will hunt my wife and I will put her down. Though it will kill the last decent thing left in me…

Stolen and locked away. 

My name is Magdalena. I’ve been chasing after a story more dangerous than I realized. And now, they’ve taken me. The Dowidoff family has been the focus of my attention, and now I’m theirs. They’ll keep me locked away until I’m trained, and then they plan to sell me.
Highest bidder wins me; the nosey American girl, and Kristoff has been put in charge of my education.
I can’t give up hope, even when Kristoff promises there is none. Not for me at least. He’s going to break me. He’s going to teach me. And at the end of it, I will be claimed.

There are many different versions of beauty; an exquisite painting, meaningful lines in a melancholy song, gazing at a fire blazed sky just after the sun has set. I find beauty in the crimson hue of blood, the last breath from suffocating lungs, anguish filled eyes losing their life. I find beauty in death…and Olivia. She’s my sanctuary, the warmth to my cold heart – and someone dared to take her. Even though there are quiet whispers about me, Olivia has never seen my rendition of beauty. Now, it’s time she witnesses the truth. I’ll paint a masterpiece with that familiar shade of red. Bodies will drop, and all of France will burn until I have my Olivia back. No one is safe until I find her.

ANNA EDWARDS
 
All I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time, I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.


I’m an avid reader who turned to writing to combat my depression and anxiety. I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality.

I like my heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth, my heroines demure but with spunk, and my books full of dramatic suspense.
