Elizabeth Parker has been found …
Like a falling star she has come down to earth, landing painfully on the debris of a broken dream. What she thought of as love now seems no more than a wish left unfulfilled. Her future lies in the hands of two powerfully possessive men; each desiring her to the point of insanity.
Flawless media mogul Ayden Stone oversees her voyage of sexual awakening, introducing her to new experiences and a secret world behind locked doors, away from prying eyes. But … is he Prince Charming or merely the great pretender?
With a fighter’s instinct, Dan Rizler continues to box clever; taking his time, waiting for the right moment to strike. He will have his Princess one way or another.
Into this twisted triangle enters Elise Richards; a woman with a past and a passion for revenge: hell hath no fury like Miss. Richards.
This is a modern fairy tale full of romance, secrets and suspense. Elizabeth Parker is about to be caught, held fast by the hand of Fate; but will she be caught out or caught up in an affair of the heart, body and soul?
When nothing else matters … you have to do or die.

My Review

I loved TouchStone for play, book 1 very much.  Sydney Jamesson introduced me to two well written and lovable characters, Ayden and Elizabeth as well as the undesirable Dan.  Book 1 left me hungry for answers and longing for more of their story.

Sydney, you did it again!  You know I am a fan of your writing and I must say, this second book was absolutely amazing.  This book…this story, touched all of my emotions.  I always love books that have that power.  I felt anger, joy, passion, angst, suspense and more joy while reading.  I smiled, I cringed and I smirked.  Wow, all I can say is it is a brilliantly written emotional roller coaster ride worth going on.

Ayden continues to be one of my favorite book boyfriends.  He shows a more playful side in this book while maintaining his passionate side as well.  Elizabeth has grown and a stronger woman emerges in this book.  Dan,  sick, creepy and ugh…

Just as in the first book, the story has a thorough, well written plot with plenty of emotional moments for the reader.  There is really so much that I want to say about this book, but I am limiting myself to avoid spoilers.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves an exquisite romance story.   I am really looking forward reading the final installment in this trilogy.

Sydney Jamesson is truly is an amazing writer.

I gave this book 5 stars!

About Sydney Jamesson

I am a Teacher of English in a Grammar School in England. I have written creatively for years, having worked as a commercial journalist and a copywriter.

TouchStone for play is my debut novel and the first installment of the Story of Us Trilogy.
I am nocturnal by nature and love nothing more than stopping up late,listening to music and being inspired to write. I find music stimulates the senses and helps me to visualize the scenes I write.
I have few interests outside of teaching, reading and writing and would consider myself a home-bird. Although, having said that, I will allow myself to be entertained by Mr. Cavill should he appear on my radar.

In Pursuit Cover Olivia Luck

Eddie Neff needs space. Not the type that country stars croon about, but physical distance from her emotionally distant father and the tatters of a broken relationship. So when the opportunity to relocate her life and interior design business arises, the answer comes easily.

Adjusting to life with Claire, her gregarious new roommate, is more than simply testing comfort limits. With just one meeting, Eddie finds herself unable to resist the draw of Harris Grant, Claire’s brooding and overprotective older brother.

Harris doesn’t fit her idea of a safe relationship. He pushes Eddie to face her deepest insecurities and fears of abandonment. And Harris holds on to his own painful loss, unable to overcome personal demons.

Eddie and Harris must learn to conquer their internal struggles. But as they navigate their new love, outside forces fight to drive them apart.

Author note: In Pursuit is the first book in a two book series. Intended for 18+ readers.

I can’t get enough of #Hayden, the hot sexy tattooed alpha male from Cupcakes and Ink and Clipped Wings.

On my shelves and in my purse you will find Clipped Wings by Helena Hunting.  This amazing book will be available on March 4, 2014.  You can pre-order it today.

clipped wings

Their body art is hot. Their chemistry is even hotter.

From her dark hair sweeping below her waist to her soft, sexy curves, Tenley Page intrigues tattoo artist Hayden Stryker in a way no one else ever has…especially when she asks him to ink a gorgeous, intricate design on her back. Yet for all her beauty, there is something darkly tragic and damaged about Tenley that Hayden is everything.

Covered in ink and steel, Hayden is everything Tenley has never dared to want, awakening a desire to explore more than the art adorning his stunning body. Trapped by a past that leaves her screaming from nightmares, Tenley sees Hayden as the perfect escape. Although he has secrets too, if they both keep themselves guarded perhaps their intense physical connection will remain only that.

But nothing, not even passion, can keep them safe from their pasts…

You’ll get my full review closer to the release date.
