“I Need you to promise me something before I go.”
“What’s that?” she asked warily.
“That you understand no matter what you say to me, how hard you try to push me away, I’m not leaving. Not physically but especially not emotionally. I will not abandon you. I will not allow you to close down and keep yourself from me.”
“I’m counting on that,” she whispered.
I stood motionless as the burn worked its way through my body. A burn that cauterized old wounds I hadn’t realized weren’t healed. Leftover abrasions on my soul that had yet to be treated. Some were minor—the residual pain of losing my career. Some were bigger, marks that would never fully go away but hadn’t yet scarred over. Things I’d done and seen and failed to do. But one thing I knew for certain, Shiloh Kent, a woman who did not trust, did not allow herself to connect, held herself remote, would not believe in me unless I’d earned it. So, yeah, fuck yeah, the old wounds sealed over.

Jonny’s Redemption is LIVE

Hey Rebels!
Jonny and Bobby are finally here. I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to give you their story and to think my plan was to kill off poor Roberta “Bobby” Layne in Chasin’s Surrender. I had her untimely demise all planned out in my head then I fell in love with her loyalty and humor. Now if I was one of those forward-thinking, plotting, well-put-together authors I would’ve maybe picked a better name for Jonny’s leading lady. I mean Jonny and Bobby that’s awfully ryhmey. (Is that a word?) You can’t even make up a cool super-couple nickname like Brangelina, TomKat, or Kimye with Bobby and Jonny. (Though all those couples split so maybe they’re not the best examples.) It would just be Bonny or Jonby. EEK. Not good. Alas, I am not a forward-thinking author, I am a fly by the seat of my pants author that goes where my characters lead and Jonny led me to Bobby, and thank goodness he did because they are HOT together. They needed each other. So, I gave Jonny his woman Bobby. And now I give them both to you. I hope you enjoy the last book in the Gemini Group Series. Yes, I cried when I finished this book.
I loved writing this series. It is based in my hometown of Kent County. I’ve visited all the places around town the characters visited. My favorite Pizza place is in these books. Nixon’s farm is where I live down to the old milking parlor. The old metal shed that was converted into Bobby’s house is on my farm. The backfield where the weddings have taken place is a special place to me. It’s real. While I didn’t get married there, I’ve spent countless hours with my family sitting on the knoll overlooking the back hundred acres. So, yes, I cried a lot when I was finished. I will miss Nixon, McKenna, Jameson, Kennedy, Weston, Silver, Alec, Macy, Chasin, Evie, Holden, Charleigh, Jonny, Bobby, and the rest of the gang. The Gemini Group series is now complete – go forth and binge or if you’re caught up grab Jonny’s Redemption and learn the truth about Jonny’s past. 

XOXO, Riley

Recovering Ivy

Zane and Ivy’s story is LIVE!

mybook.to/recoveringIvy

RecoveringIvy_RileyEdwards

What are readers saying? Glad you asked. LOL Did you know that a recent poll showed that 85% of readers buy books based on recommendation alone? That means without even reading the blurb. Social proof, better know as word of mouth is the best way to help support your favorite authors. I love reading my early reviews!

“Zane doesn’t do repeats. So why is he biting heads off because he woke up to an empty bed? Damn, he didn’t even know her last name. An unexpected meeting has both he and Ivy pretending this is their first introduction. A strategic phone call and the client/perp is called away leaving Ivy in the hands of Zane. He has questions. He needs answers. Then he needs her, again. She has a past life she doesn’t want to discuss. She has a plan for revenge. Nothing will get in her way. When revenge and justice cross paths can Zane and Ivy work together? He plans to play with her and more. She just doesn’t know it yet. And when she finds out….? This is the first book I’ve read in the series and it does stand alone. However, I’d happily read the previous three books and any after this one. Plenty of steam, feelings change those who don’t feel worthy of finding love. The team will give all for any one of them besides driving Zane to distraction with their razzing that he has been caught by a woman who takes no prisoners or anything else from a man she doesn’t want. They all care about the team/family and their love is strong and loyal. This has my strong recommendation. Read for Words Turn Me On ”

“I must say what a treat reading Ivy and Zane’s story. It was like an action-packed movie unfolding inside my head with drool-worthy hotties, both man and women included. There is as much activity in the field as there is in bed, but all this is just icing on the cake. What I loved about Recovering Ivy is that the author tackles a more serious issue re drug addiction and how it affects family members. The author’s in-depth characterization of Ivy is brilliant and Zane’s emotional growth is what makes this a great tale, two broken people healing each other and making them whole.

“I will not quit us, and I won’t let you run away from it either. I’ll fight for us; I’ll fight when you can’t. I’ll make sure when we cross the finish line you are stronger than you have ever been.”

It’s a fast-paced romance spiked with attitude and passion, the perfect book to tuck in on a lazy weekend. I really enjoyed Zane and Ivy’s story and I bet you will too!

 

I received a free copy of this book however all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
This is hands down the best book I have read this year. I had never read any of Riley’s books before this, but having finished this, and loved it, I have gone back to the beginning of the series (not that it makes any difference to this book as all background is explained perfectly). From the get go the storyline grabs you and doesn’t let go, I’d normally say until the last page, but as there is the tempting teaser to the next book, I can’t even say that! It has romance, suspense, murder, searing red hot sex scenes and sexy alpha males (described so well I was salivating!). Absolutely not one thing I can grumble or say I’m disappointed about, well besides the wait I’ve now got til the next one…………………………….

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

RECOVERING IVY

Recovering Ivy is book 4 in the RED TEAM series and the third book I’ve written in Susan Stoker’s Special Forces: Operation Alpha universe.  I am so excited to finally give you Zane “Viper” Lewis’ story. AND you’ll see Susan Stoker’s characters from her SEAL of Protection Series.

Blurb:
We met in a bar.
The sex was phenomenal.
Then I walked away.
That’s where our story should’ve ended.
But he found me. Now he knows my real name, my secrets, and all the details of my sordid past.
I’m out for revenge and no one will stop me; not even the pragmatic Zane Lewis. If he thinks he can silence me with the promise of more mind-bending sex, he’s wrong.

Ivy Matthews is the most frustrating female I’ve ever known. I’ve broken terrorists faster than I can pull information from her sweet lips.
The only time she’s pliant is when she’s under me, or when my mouth is exploring her sexy curves, and then the most exquisite filthy words and breathy moans fill my ears.
If she thinks she can walk away from me, she’s wrong.
I’ve found the one–my perfect match–my equal.

Come hell or high-water Ivy is mine.

WARNING: SUPER-HOT STEAMY ROMANCE.

Saving Meadow
A Next Generation Novel

“All the Pretty Girls keeps you on the edge of your seat. Mystery and romance twisted together in one great book.” 

SAVING_MEADOWBUY NOW>> readerlinks.com/l/325133/savingmeadow

The road was long, it was painful, and it was raw. 

It has taken me four years to come to terms with my new reality. A life in which I live with the daily reminders of a vicious attack that has left me scarred both emotionally and physically. Years of recovery and acceptance were torn apart and obliterated the day Special Agent Nick Clark barges into my life. He says the person who attacked me and left me for dead is back. He says I was the first victim – the one who got away. He promises to protect me. But he can’t, no one can.

Nick is relentless in his pursuit and promises me the things I can’t afford to have – like hope for a future with the sexy FBI agent. But hope and love and promises can’t protect me, not when I’m next on the killer’s list.

Meadow Holiday is the missing piece, the woman I’ve been searching for. And it has nothing to do with her being a witness in an unsolved serial killer case I’ve had sitting on my desk for the last four years. I had no business falling in love in the middle of a murder investigation but she’s the one. I feel it deep in my bones. I knew the first time I laid eyes on the shy, beautiful woman that she was mine. Now I’m left with the daunting task of convincing her I’m enough.

Can Nick save Meadow in time and prove his love can heal all wounds, or is he already saving_meadowT2.jpgtoo late to fix what a sadist serial killer has broken?

“Violet is exactly the kind of heroine I love…selfless, strong, completely down to Earth. I LOVED it!” NYT / USAT Bestseller Susan Stoker

 

“In Redeeming Violet Riley Edwards has written the quintessential kick ass take names and put the bad guys in jail book and done it in her own amazing way. I could not put this book down.” Goodreads Reviewer

F**k it.

Screw my good intentions, and the promises I couldn’t make. F**k it all; I wanted her. I wanted what we could have at this moment, not tomorrow, not next week, now. I couldn’t give the first two f**ks about love and relationships. I needed her right this very second with a deep-seated thirst I’d never felt. I wanted her joy and light, and I was going to steal it like a thief and not feel a damn bit of remorse.

I yanked the bag from her hand, tossed it on the bed, and pulled her to me. Her laughter immediately died, and her smile faded.

“Stop this now if you don’t want it,”

“Nothing can come of this between us; you know that, right? I really enjoyed spending time with you tonight. You’re a great guy, and I believe you think you mean all those nice things you said to me. But let’s face it, I’m not marriage material. I’m filler. That’s all I can be. I thought I was okay being that for you. But I was wrong. There’s no way I can get to know you and not develop feelings. I think it’s best if we walk away now before my heart gets broken.”

There.
I’d said it.
I let him off the hook, and when I opened my eyes I figured I see some sort of relief on his face. After all, I was being practical; he’d want a family one day, I couldn’t give that to anyone. However, I didn’t see relief. I saw so much anger I recoiled and scooted as far away from him as I could in the small space the couch would allow.

“The fuck did you just say?” he growled.

“Umm… which part?”

“The filler part,” he sneered.

Oh boy, he was mad.

“You know the women you date when you’re done sleeping around but not ready to settle down and get married. The fillers.” I heard the words coming out of my mouth, and I watched as his eyes narrowed into two small slits, but I couldn’t stop. “The woman you use to try to cut your teeth on, see if you’re ready for a real relationship.”

“I’ve heard some fucked up shit in my life. I’ve seen even more. I’ve seen the viciousness one person can inflict on another. But never have I witnessed someone be so cruel to themselves. Beyond that, you think so little of me that not only do you think I would use you, but you think I would use other women to cut my teeth. That is jacked. Everything you just said is so fucked up I don’t know where to begin to straighten your shit out. You. Are. Not. Filler. Not to me, not to any other man. I still don’t understand what the hell that means. Your head is so twisted you’ve imagined some bullshit universe where that makes sense. It doesn’t. It’s fucked, Meadow!”
