By JS Cooper
The day started like every other day…
Bianca finds herself kidnapped and locked up in a van with a strange man. Ten hours later, they’re dumped on a deserted island. Bianca has no idea what’s going on and her attraction to this stranger is the only thing keeping her fear at bay.
Jakob wants only to figure out why they’ve been left on the island and how they can get off. But as the days go by, he can’t ignore his growing fascination with Bianca.
In order to survive, Bianca and Jakob must figure out how they’re connected, but as they grow closer, secrets are revealed that may destroy everything they thought they knew about each other.
OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! This book was AMAZING! I will start out by saying that I know JS Cooper. I went to my first book signing event last year in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and it was her first signing event as well.
Since then, I have been following her work. One day I work up and found an ARC of this book in my mailbox. I knew nothing about this book, but like many of my favorite authors I tend to read their books without reading the synopsis. Therefore, I find myself being pleasantly surprised a lot and this book was no exception.
Right from the get go there is a bunch of action that instantly captured my attention and when I met Jakob I wasn’t sure about him. I kept thinking that something was off………there was more to this story than met the eye. And holy crap! I was not wrong. Every time I turned the page, I felt like I was getting more of the story. For those of you who don’t know me, my brain is always trying to figure out the story. My mind went into hyper drive and I knew it would not stop until I finished this book. So every chance I got, I was reading more and more of this book excited to get to the next page. (Yes, I finished this book in a day…….I just could not put it down!!!)
I ended up formulating two plans in my mind and I was really hoping that it was my second thought and not my first thought. I was really hoping that this book would end the way I wanted it to. But oh no, JS Cooper decided to throw a kink into my plans. The story took the turn I didn’t want and it ended on a cliff hanger. Normally I’m not a fan of cliff hangers because I’m the most impatient person in the world. However, several days later I cannot seem to get this book out of my mind. It was THAT GOOD!!!
It had great writing, great characters and (I’m channeling my love of Harry Potter), it had a bloody brilliant plot. If you are looking for a book that is different than the rest of the cookie cutter books out there and wanting something with some great action and mystery than this is the book for you! I can’t wait to see JS Cooper again because this book was soooooo good that I’m going to need a signed copy for me and a copy to give away!
This book is a MUST read for 2014!!

He was everything she never wanted. Yet, she couldn’t stop thinking about him.
Soulful, amber eyes
A sex, drugs, and rock n’roll reputation
A body that beckoned for sin
Three years ago Rochelle Floros was living her dream come true… then lost it all. On the worst day of her life, the last person she expected to be there for her was a rock star and tabloid favorite. Now, she’s trying to rebuild her life after the tragedy that destroyed her fairytale. Slowly, she found herself captivated by a sexy, bad boy drummer she had known for years.
Rochelle was caught between the grief that shrouded her heart and the charismatic man that made it race. What she didn’t know is if he was being sincere or toying with her heart. The Redemption is about finding the pulse of your soul in the most unlikely places and giving love a chance to grow.
Can what she wants really be what she needs? With his rhythm and her passion, can they make music together? Or will their harmony be lost forever?
This was a novel about learning to live life. Rochelle has lost her partner, Cory and has been in morning for a while. Therefore, when one night when she attempts to move on with Cory’s bandmate Dex, she ends up screaming out Cory’s name and everything falls apart.
This book takes place over several years and it is a push pull of Rochelle and Dex’s attempt to move on with life and with each other. Each has a habit of pushing each other away at times and I found it interesting that at the times they pushed each other away they could have really used each other’s support. Therefore, I wanted to beat both of them upside the head a times.
The book was good in showing you what happens in real life when people who are in unhealthy places attempt to have a relationship. Dex was sweet and amazing. I definitely like it when a man puts his emotions out there and isn’t afraid to say them. Rochelle was okay……. She drove me nuts most of the time but she had her moments. I tend to struggle with heroines who have a push/pull because I feel like I’m reading about Borderline Personality Disorder and how you are always subjected to their ups and downs. It’s too much drama for me. But once Rochelle let her walls down she mellowed out and I was finally able to like her. They both also eventually became healthy which allowed them to start working towards having other healthy relationships.

Beth Rhodes has always had a game plan. Go to college. Get the perfect job. Get the perfect guy. Get the happily ever after she’s always wanted. It is just her luck that everything falls into its precise place in her life. At least it seems that way until her blueprints go up in smoke. She loses the job she loves and her prince charming is turning out to be the villain of her fairytale instead. With failures and mistakes piling up on her doorstep, she knows something has to give—or she could very well end up paying for those mistakes with her life.
Braxton Bennett is lethal, both in the courtroom and in the ring. Two sides of him constantly wage war against one another, and to keep the internal bloodshed at bay, he allows himself to indulge in his violent vice. Suit by day and brawler by night aren’t easy dual lives to manage for a man of his status. The only way to do so is by following a strict set of rules—rules he won’t break for anyone. But what if he already has?
On a summer night in the depths of the city, a chance encounter will turn both of their perfectly constructed worlds upside down.
Will they battle together against all odds to break Bennett’s rules? Or will Rhodes tap out to save herself before the fight is over?
First off let me just say, I freaking love Anne Jolin she is amazing, sweet, funny, and incredibly talented. And this book I think is her best yet and they just keep getting better and better. You never know what’s going to happen. I couldn’t put this book down. Everyone needs to read this I highly recommend it. This book is amazing and will throw you off at every turn. this book has the perfect amount of everything you could ever need in a book. suspense, romance, love, heart-pounding events, you get my drift.
Beth Rhodes is feisty, spirited, take no crap from anyone type of person and she’s a survivor for it. When someone knocks her down, she just gets back up and says Eff you. She loves wholeheartedly. She is simply amazing.
Braxton Bennett is not what you would expect at all. First he’s volatile and frightening, but then he shows you he is a complete and utter swoon worthy alpha that you fall in love with for his darkness and the way he cares.
I’m not going to spoil anything for you. You are going to have to read the book. I will say this though, Beth was an unexpected savior for Braxton. I’ll let you guess the rest hehe… HAPPY READING!!!!

My name’s Sebastian Black, and I want to buy you. I could have any woman I want, but I choose you. NO RELATIONSHIP, JUST SEX. Here’s my offer… I’ll put your name in my LITTLE BLACK BOOK, and when I want you, I’ll call you. When I call, you’re going to come, in more ways than one. It will be mutually pleasurable for both of us. There are only two rules: DON’T EVER DENY ME. DON’T FALL IN LOVE. If you do either, I’ll remove you from my book and payment stops. Do we have an understanding?
I’ve had this book on my TBR list for a few months now and I just kept pushing it aside, I’m not even sure why other than I had never heard of the author and I wasn’t sure I would really like it from the description. Boy, was I wrong ~ I started it in the evening before I went to bed and before I knew it it was 4am and I was barely able to keep my eyes open but I kept pushing myself to stay awake and keep reading till sleep finally won out. I LOVED this book! Once I started I couldn’t stop. I didn’t like Sebastian Black. As you can tell from the description he’s arrogant, cocky, you name it – he was it. But I fell in love with him before I knew it. I know, I broke one of the cardinal rules but hey you just can’t help it. He was awesome once you got into the story and he met “Jessica”, Jessica Rabbit that is…he has a cartoon name for all the girls in his “Little Black Book” so that he doesn’t call them by their real names and get attached, that to me was HILARIOUS! The story line was a total shocker for me and not at all what I was expecting (I’m not going to give it away), but WOW – totally caught me off guard and I couldn’t wait to keep reading to find out what happened.
There is another book in the series that came prior to this one which I didn’t know at the time. It looks like it’s about Sebastian Black as a child and how he became the man he was in this story. I didn’t feel like I missed out on anything by not reading the other book first, so it’s up to you.
