Cover Reveal: Can't Let Go



Dex is many things, a college senior, the bassist for The Invisibles, a son, a friend, everything but a boyfriend. Everybody knows him as the shallow guy who’s up for a good time anytime. People rarely take the time to see the loyal guy lying just beneath the happy-go-lucky façade.

There are parts of Dex’s life he keeps hidden. Ones he believes no one would understand. Since he gave up on the idea of a dream girl long ago, he thinks he’s finally found the perfect balance of connection without commitment with Sam.

Chrissy used to know everything about Dex. When he left four years ago for college, she was left behind. Four years later, with nowhere else to turn, Chrissy calls the one person she’s always counted on, Dex. One glance at the sad eyes he’s tried to forget and Dex knows it’s out of his control.

With Chrissy's return, lines begin to cross from friendship to something more, but will Dex's secret force them apart forever?

Sweet and naïve in the ways of the world, Camille “Cami” Johnston has done whatever it takes to survive in New York City. Unbroken by her tumultuous past, she is pursuing a stable and secure future that doesn’t include worrying about where the rent money will come from. Little does she know, a full-time position at Jensen Construction will do more than pay the bills, it will bring her everything she ever dreamed of having, but didn’t believe she was worthy of.

Known ladies’ man, Nathaniel “Nate” Walker, has never had a problem securing a date. As a widely successful lawyer and business owner, he knows exactly how to get what he wants, when he wants it, in and out of the courtroom… until he meets Camille Johnston.

Nate’s overly confident, alpha male tendencies toward Cami have her thoughts and emotions in a jumble of uncertainty and lust. But once the sparks fly between the cheeky lawyer and his precious Camille, the resounding flames are unstoppable.

As the couple try to find their way toward a future they both yearn for, secrets from Camille’s past and present start piling up into a vortex of half-truths and lies of omission. Now the instant connection that brought Nate and Cami together is held together by a tenuous thread.

With a little help from their friends, Camille and Nate’s steamy, romantic, breathless journey finishes off the third installment of The Falling Series.

Author Interview: Emily R Pearson author of MOVING FORWARD & TWO STEPS BACK

Six years ago a monster broke Ava Monroe's soul. She was left with nothing but an empty house and no reason to live. In starting a new life in a new city she finds the strength to carry on, but can she ever erase the demons of her past?
When an act of fate brings Seth into her life, they'll attempt to discover the truth about their tainted pasts. But Seth Carter has a secret; one even he doesn't know exists.
Will Ava's connection with Seth be enough to lift her up, or will it destroy what little she has left?

**WARNING: This book contains mature content**

A broken girl, Ava meets and falls in love with the perfect guy, Seth. Too good to be true? Well yes it sure is, but probably not in the way in which you would expect, or I certainly didn't expect it. A stalker/murderer is on the lose but is only after one girl. But again it is much more complex than even that. The interweaving links in this story are fantastic, author Emily R Pearson does a brilliant job of keeping the excitement going all the way from beginning to end. I loved the relationships between Ava and her friend and also with the detective. Well done on a gripping storyline! Will there be another book? I award Moving Forward 5 stars!


Two simple words sent Seth's world crashing down around him. He's gone. The truth begins to unravel as Seth and Dawson discover just how deep Richard's betrayal went. With the help of Detective Sterling, they race to stop the monster that destroyed their pasts. Together they find that family isn't always blood, but rather a dysfunctional mesh of unexpected friends. With Ava gone, Seth struggles to get back the woman he loves. Will he be able to keep his promise to stop James from destroying their futures? Or will he lose his grip on reality, setting off a chain reaction? Sometimes, in order to move forward from the wake of a disaster, you have to take two steps back.

Well what can I say, except Emily R Pearson you have done it again, provided me with a gripping and emotional read. This book is a suspense story but to me, at its core is love. And it is this love which drives the story forward. I'm not just going to do a retelling of the story as this would spoil it for you, but I am going to say that this story is full of sexy and strong alpha males with equally strong and independent females. Ava and Carrissa you show that us girls sure can fight when we need to. Thank you Emily R Pearson for an amazing story. But now I want more, please tell me we will be getting more? I award this book 5 easy Stars!!!



1.       Where are you from?

A silly little town called Deer Creek Illinois. It’s all of 5 blocks every direction!

2.       What do you do when you’re not writing?
I spend time with my little redhead daughter. She’s a handful! She’s almost three going on thirteen! I also enjoy reading, running, and trying to look cool in public. I usually fail at that last one!

3.       Where do the ideas for your books come from?

My fingertips. No really! I sat down one day and just stared writing. That’s when Moving Forward was born. I have yet to outline anything. The stories have just written themselves.

4.       What book are you reading now?

I’m currently reading an ARC/Beta copy of Secrets for Love by Claudia Bradshaw, my critique partner. You’ll want to check out her first book, Sin for Love. ;)

5.       What was the hardest part in writing?

Hurting the characters you’ve grown to love. Destruction causes me great pain…and great pleasure. It’s a twisted world writers live in.

6.       What was your favorite part of writing?

Creating a story that I get so wrapped up in. I literally curse myself as plots unfold. I absolutely love the emotional outlet writing gives me.

7.       What are your current projects?

Currently, I’m writing Stepping Out: A Moving Forward Short. It’s a novella in the bad guys POV. It’s really driving my emotions off a cliff! Let me tell ya!

8.      Can you share a little of your current work with us?

This is fresh off the WIP! I just wrote this little snipet!

“How exactly is that my fault? I didn’t control what family you ended up with.” Richard said folding his arms across his chest.
“You decided that it wasn’t yours that I belonged to even though I belonged to Charlotte. If you wouldn’t have sent me away, I’d have never been raised to accept hate and fear and agony into my heart. Isn’t that what it all comes down to, Richard? The ‘what ifs’ of where I was raised versus where I should have been raised.”

9.       Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

Thank you for all the support you have not only given me, but the characters of this series as well! It’s truly a wonderful thing to see all the love people have for a group of characters I’ve created and fallen in love with together! Thank you for loving Ava and Seth enough to stick with me through this!

~~**OK………….. Now that all the serious questions are out of the way, let’s have some fun**~~

10.   What is your most embarrassing moment?

Man. I really have to choose one? That’s a hard question! I am really outgoing and quirky, so embarrassing myself is rare. :) One day, I had been sitting outside eating Oreo’s with my little girl. We got up to go for a walk around the block. When we got back, we stood outside talking to one of my neighbors. As I said goodbye and walked away, he yelled back at me, “You look like you pooped yourself!” I had a big Oreo stain right on my butt! I sat on a cookie. That poor cookie.

11.    What is one of the things you would put on your “bucket list”?

Skydiving. I would love to skydive. It’s scary and exciting and completely out of my element.

12.    If you could be any flavor of ice cream what flavor would you be and why?

I’m going to go with Confetti Cake Ice Cream. It’s a cool party in a box. Hello! That screams Emily!

13.    What is one thing that annoys you the most?

Odd numbers. They are just…odd. When I turn the volume up on my TV or my radio in the car, it HAS to be on an even number or my head will explode.

14.    What is the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?

I don’t eat strange things! But I did eat a worm once. It was a dare. I can’t back down to a dare!

15.    Are you a morning or night person?

Night person all the way. I hate mornings, but I could stay up all night if my lame body didn’t require sleep!

16.    What’s your favorite movie?

Boondock Saints – the first one! Such an awesome flick!

17.    Where is the worst place you could get stuck?

Somewhere without cell reception! I’d go insane! I mean, who wouldn’t?
18.   Where would you go if you were invisible?

To Jensen Ackels house. I’d creepily watch him while he was unaware. In case you were wondering, I love him. He’s my future husband. He just doesn’t know it yet – neither does his wife! Is that too creepy? :p

19.    What is the one thing you own you wish you didn’t?

Tweezers. I really hate those things. Heck, I don’t even use them! Is that weird?

20.   If you were stranded on a tropical island what 2 things would you want with you?

My kindle and my child. She’s a thing, right? I’d go crazy without that stubborn little redhead. We both LOVE to read, so the kindle would be a necessity. :)

21.    If you could choose your nickname, what would it be?

Well that’s a tough question. In high school I had an amazing group of girlfriends. We all named ourselves after different Little Rascals characters. My nickname was Buckwheat. Does that count? I picked it! I gotta dolla, I gotta dolla, I gotta dolla hey, hey, hey, HEY! Thank you SO much for these amazing questions! Some of them were tough! <3

Ten years went by until one day when Daimon Evans, the boy who bullied me continuously in high school, reemerged back into my life, offering me all that I wanted in exchange for one thing….me.”

Addie Sakis had a sad past, a past that overshadowed her future. She clung to it not knowing how to let it go. That was until Daimon Evans came back into her life challenging her and pushing her back to the fighter he knew still existed inside her.

“This isn’t good,” said Silvia. She was one of our most loyal patrons. She was a bit eccentric. She wore too much rouge and cheap perfume. Her age was completely unknown, but she was old. Her hair was a light purple as it puffed up high over her head.

“No, it’s not,” I said quietly looking out through the storefront window. They were close to opening it up.

I stood there, my arms crossed, just shaking my head. I was so engrossed that I failed to notice a customer had walked in.

“So, what’s the deal here? Do you actually work or stare out the window?”

It couldn’t be.

Ten fucking years had gone by. There would be no way that boy would be here.

I turned my head slightly and there in my diner’s entryway stood Daimon.

The old saying when it rains it pours, was seriously an understatement when it came to my life and me. It didn’t pour, a fucking typhoon happened the moment he walked in my restaurant and subsequently back into my life. I put my best poker face on, as I held my stance with my arms still crossed.

“You can sit wherever you like.” I smiled, not meaning it. He nodded and proceeded to walk into my little restaurant and slid into one of our worn out booths.

“Well… isn’t he, the cat’s meow,” Silvia said nearly moaning.

“God! How old are you?” I asked her, looking at her like she had a few screws loose.

“Old. But my libido is still working,” she grinned, a little bit of red lipstick had stained her front teeth.

“Okay, way too much info.” I shook my head at her.

She wasn’t wrong about him. The man was stunning, with his dark longish hair in a perfect hair cut with a faint beard and his intense blue, like the sky, eyes. His black perfectly trimmed suit only added to his effect, which by his grin, he knew.

I smiled walking over to him.

“What can I get you?” I asked.

“Coffee and some company would be nice.” He continued to grin.

His voice had gotten deeper over the years. I shook it off. Fine, I can admit it. He turned out to be sexy, but it didn’t change the fact the he tormented me all throughout high school, like I was his personal plaything. I brought him the coffee. I was tempted to throw it on him, but I didn’t.

“Here’s your coffee.” I placed it on the table.

“Silvia?” I yelled over my shoulder still looking at him.

“And here’s your company, sir,” I grinned.

Silvia nearly launched herself into the booth.

“Well hello, dear.” She smiled from ear to ear, her dentures nearly falling out. Daimon’s face fell. I had to step away not to laugh.

“Um…how about the boss lady?” he asked, leaning away from Silvia and her dentures.

“The boss lady? Ah, forget her, sweet sugar. You have this beautiful dame right here in front of you. How’s about you and me go for some giggle water?” She wagged her eyebrows at him.

“Are you for real? Hey!” he yelled over to me. “Is this lady for real? What the fuck is giggle water?” he asked me, seemingly uncomfortable.

“Alcohol,” Silvia said, shocked that he didn’t know.

Well, the truth was I didn’t know either, but that was Silvia. She was stuck back in a time I couldn’t relate to.

“How about I take a rain check?” Daimon said half smiling.

“Ah raspberries,” Silvia pouted.

“Hey Addie? Addie? Addie?” He called my name each time in a different tone.

“I'm sorry, sir. How is it that you know my name?” I grinned. God, if it wasn’t for customer service and the fact I didn’t want him to know I remembered him, I would have thrown his ass out so fast.

“You can’t be serious? Addie, it’s me,” he said holding out his hands like ‘hey I’m unforgettable.’ I shook my head.

“You are… who exactly?” I asked again, shrugging.

“Daimon, Daimon Evans,” he sighed.

“Oh, I like the name,” Silvia moaned again.

“Well, it’s nice to meet you Daimon, Daimon Evans.” I smiled and nodded.

“You have to be fucking with me,” he said not too pleased as he stood up and walked over to me. “I know you remember me,” he said low as he glared at me.

“I'm not going to lie, it rings a bell.” I shook my head again. “College?” I offered.

“Fine, we’ll play your game, your way.” He threw some money on the table; looked back at me as he fixed his coat and began to walkout. “For now.” He pulled the door open and left.

“You’re telling me you don’t remember a fine piece of ass like that?” Silvia pointed at the door.

“No, I don’t. I remember a boy who made my life miserable.” I growled low into my chest. Silvia rose up from the booth and stood beside me.

“Ah shucks, honey, if he looked like that, he could have made my life a living hell and I would have loved it,” she said as she started blowing kisses at him through the window.

I inched closer to the storefront and watched as Daimon walked away. Why did I suddenly feel like my future had this ominous cloud over it?

sister still weighing down both her conscience and her heart, Kailin
Odel must take on the next part of her mission - find her mother and
Anjelo and bring them back from Wrythiin.

Kailin uses her
mother's portal key and enters the Wraith world intent on saving the
ones she loves, but from the moment she arrives her mission is fraught
with peril.
Arriving in Wrythiin, Kai steps right into the middle of a
Wraith rebellion. And only to find that though Anjelo is safe, her
mother is held captive by a subversive faction of Wraiths once led by
the Wraithlord that Kai had killed.

From Wraiths to
Shapeshifters, rebel causes to fraying family ties, to inexplicable new
powers, Kai must fight her darkest demons while entering the blackest
pits of Wrythiin to save her mother.

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognize that reading
was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of
the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am
essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practice
given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers,
my confidantes… I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It’s a
fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of
each others loves – it works wonderfully…

My heart is currently broken in two. One half
resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still
longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer
downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been
transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha,
beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly
inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands – I shall forever
remain cross-eyed.
