Liam Stern lived a charmed and carefree life. Always surrounded by friends, he was the boy who could have any girl he wanted, and did.
She was pure and innocent. She was the one he never saw coming.
She was the only thing that mattered, but the time came for him to fulfill his destiny. To protect Avery from a life she was not made for, he would have to give up the one thing he loved most in this world: her.
Now the decisions made years ago come back to cost them both, dearly.
Avery Edwards was a good girl, never stepping out of line, always the obedient daughter.
Until Liam showed her everything she was missing in her life: love.
Liam was her future, or at least she thought.
Until he broke her.
That was the beginning of her nightmare.
After years apart, Liam and his family hold her future in their hands. Rebuilding a girl who no longer cares to live.
After years of hating Liam, can Avery truly give him her forgiveness?
Written by Monique Orgeron’s eldest, most beautiful, and intelligent daughter. (My sister is going to hate this part.)
My mom happens to be the most caring, loving, and stubborn person I know, well anyone knows. She gives 100% percent of herself to everyone and has given up so much of herself for my sister and I. For twenty-one years she has poured her heart and soul into making sure we know that we are loved and that we can do anything we put our minds too, but it was about time she figured that out about herself.
Up until this year I hadn’t seen my mom do anything for only her, but this book has allowed her to travel the world through the pages of a book, make new friends, and feel the joy of doing something exciting.
There is a new light behind her eyes and it is just making me feel more joy than she can ever imagine. While she might be annoying most of the time, I am so thrilled that she is finally allowing herself to grow as a person and not spend all of her energy on her family.
It has been a long journey of self-discovery for my mom; she has gone from domestic supermom to domestic goddess throughout the process of writing.
We are so very excited and proud of you! I love you as big as the world.
Sidelined, a sexy all-new STANDALONE from Marquita Valentine is NOW AVAILABLE!
Sidelined by Marquita ValentinePublication Date: January 23rd, 2018Genre: Contemporary Romance
It was supposed to be the happiest time of my life.
And it was, until my husband left me.
On our honeymoon.
For the wedding planner.
Now I all I want to do is get over the humiliation with the one man I shouldn’t.
Except he's avoiding me at all costs.
But I'm not going to let Aiden McHugh get away. He might be the hottest quarterback in the NFL and my older brother’s best friend, but he doesn't intimidate me. He promised to help me and I’m holding him it… even if it means I have to convince him one seduction at a time.
Until the seduced becomes the seducer.
I no longer want to get over my ex; I just want Aiden.
I have been a big fan of Marquita Valentine for quite some time, and I am so happy she has continued on with her soorts romance (my favourite genre) in Sidelined. This book was incredibly funny at times, but what I liked the most was that it was Aiden doing the chasing. You have a star quarterback who could have any woman he wishes for, but it has always been Layton who has held his heart. He stood looking on when she promised herself to another man, but he also made sure he was there to catch her when it all fell apart. Wonderfully written as always, and Layton's little quirks just added to the story to make it one that I will make sure I reread again. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book.

But lies had a way of unraveling, even if we didn’t want them to.
The devil had a trick, for his love was full of acid. Acid that burnt at every touch, every linger, and I let it burn all the way to my core.
A devil made you sin. And my devil was the worst.
But now that devil wanted my last kiss, and it wasn't one I was willing to give.
He could take the acid and leave the burn behind.
I was keeping my heart, even if I died trying.
"He's my f'ing acid, and the burn feels so good coming from him, even when it shouldn't. Even when the burn should stop." I am not sure where to start with this review. There were many "moments" throughout this book with poetic dialogue to narrate them. This is a dark romance story that takes on some gore, at moments. Jaya and Syler's hearts intertwined, but his sister Toska's jealousy constantly caused problems for them. Syler was Jaja's wolf, Jaya was Syler's mouse, his prey all along, but overtime feelings grew and the both need to decide what they ultimately wanted. Their love is unconventional but ultimately it works for them. "...I'm trying to stop my love from flowing, I want it to drip slowly. Let me drip, Syler. I'll let you drip, Mouse."
