Title: Silent Chaos
Series: Love & Lyrics
Author: Nikki Ash
Release: September 29, 2022
Genre: Second Chance, Rock Star Romance
 
From USA Today Bestselling author Nikki Ash comes a hate to lovers, second chance, rock star romance.
Braxton
Our senior year, I promised my girl forever.
Forever, as it turned out, wasn’t enough. She told me so in her actions. When she took a match to my life, burning it to ash.
I headed to LA with my band—Raging Chaos—like we always planned, while Kaylee went to college, taking my damaged heart with her.
This was where our story was supposed to end.
Only six years later, our lives collide again.
Kaylee is the only thing I ever loved more than music, and I wish I could hate her for it, but the line between love and hate is thin, and often straddled.
And the thing about collisions? They result in deadly debris.
Kaylee
When you love someone, you let them go. But what I did was so much worse.
Because instead of pushing him away, I shoved Braxton straight over the edge.
I’ve spent the past several years avoiding him, trying to make things right.
When my reputation has been dragged through the mud, and I’m given the opportunity to clean it up, I have no choice but to cross paths with him again.
Being around Braxton is a harsh reminder of the way I lit his life up in flames, but I’m not sure he knows I’ve been burned, too.
If suffering in silence is the cost, I’ll pay the price to make things right.
I just hope our history won’t play on repeat and he’ll see me as more than the stupid girl with the lit match.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: Like real life, the characters are far from perfect, make morally gray decisions, and deal with subjects that may be sensitive for some readers. If you are looking for a safe romance, this series is not for you. Trigger warnings (which contain spoilers) can be found on my website.

Tropes: Enemies to Lovers, Romantic Suspense, Rockstar, Twisted
Release Date: August 16, 2022

Beautifully dark. Hauntingly horrific. An especially twisted tale that will evoke so many emotions.” ~ The Lushy Reader

“… a fast paced, gripping, intense romance that ensnared my attention immediately and kept me riveted until the very end.” ~ Anna’s Bookshelf

ADDY
I thought the suffocating loneliness of the last two years was bad, but then I was sent to Lakeridge Psychiatric Facility.
On the outside it’s disguised as helpful brochures and friendly doctors who have vowed to help, but the real truth is just below the surface, lurking in the shadows, and haunting my dreams.
At night he comes–taunting and abusing me. Bending me to his will, and making sure no one believes me.
That is until Dylan.
I can touch him and see him, but if my mind is capable of creating such horrors like my nightmares, can I trust that he’s real?
DYLAN
I’m no stranger to breaking rules and living on the edge. I guess it kind of comes with the territory of being a rockstar. But when I’m forced to attend Lakridge to serve my time and get sober, I’m met with the one thing I know I can’t have.
Addy.
I know we don’t have a chance, not unless I want to get kicked out of here, made to finish my sentence in a proper prison. Still, something about her calls to me.
There is more to the marks on her pale skin than the doctors say, and her nightmares seem to be a little too real.
Digging deeper into the madness, I’m left to question, can nightmares really leave scars? Or am I becoming mad too?

Title: Controlled Chaos
Series: Love & Lyrics
Author: Nikki Ash
Genre: Single Mom, Rock Star Romance
Release Date: June 23, 2022

Camden
I’ve been in love with my best friend since high school.
My biggest regret? Walking away without telling her.
I planned to. But then catastrophe struck, making us part ways without a word.
She left for Boston with her fiancé, while I left for L.A. with my band–Raging Chaos.
For the next five years, I lived and breathed music, trying to forget the beautiful girl who shattered my heart without even knowing it.
Until I see her again…
I walked away once, and I’ve learned my lesson.
Layla is my forever, not another item in my pile of regrets.
And she’s about to find that out.
 
Layla
The moment I saw Camden on stage, something inside me came to life
His tragic song of unrequited love was a confession that had me questioning everything.
Five years might’ve changed who we are—he’s a rock star and I’m a single mom—but my feelings for him are as strong as ever.
His lyrics make falling in love seem easy. For him—maybe it is.
Only I’ve learned the hard way that real life isn’t as simple as writing a love song.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Review My Girls Nook Korner – “Nikki wrote it with finesse and trust me the subjects she wrote are hard to write with care. But Nikki did.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Review Intel Chicky Reads Romance – “Good lord! What an emotional roller coaster ride! The story is well written and moves quickly.”

Title: Raiden
Series: Somnolence
Author: Ali Lucia Sky
Genre: Rockstar Romance, Paranormal Romance, New Adult
Release Date: June 6, 2022
 

 
I never expected to see my favorite rock band standing in the office of my high school getting their schedules. Kids my age aren’t known for touring the world and making music for the masses, but Somnolence is.
They welcome me. Raiden takes me in, loves me… it’s like a dream. Until darker forces, nightmares, and their own dark appetites come for me.
Disclaimer & Trigger Warning:
This title is in the mature New Adult genre and meant for an audience of 18+ due to triggering situations such as domestic violence and assault, PTSD, reference to sexual assault, sexual situations including MF, MFM, light MM & light FF, profanity and substance abuse.
The band launches into a metal version of “Barbie Girl” by Aqua that flows into Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse,” and we laugh. I like Lizzy. She feels like a long lost friend, a missing piece.

Raiden drops the mic, and it makes a squealing noise before Trace moves to turn it off. My guy beelines for me and grabs me under the arms lifting me until my legs are around him. He buries his head into my neck. The bite he made left four puncture wounds, which all the guys were pissed about. None more so than Bane, who took a punch at him. He told him that I was a princess and should be handled with respect. With the context I had now, it made infinitely more sense.

“I have a song for you.” Raiden licks me from collarbone to chin and then takes my lips in a filthy kiss.

I pull away. “All your songs are for me.”

“All of me is for you,” he corrects me and then takes my mouth again until we are both unsteady and breathing heavy. Then he peels me off of him and into Bane’s arms, smirking at my weak kneed state.

The music starts and it’s heavy, all drums and bass. The guitar wails. Trace starts screaming the open lines.
 
I won’t look away.
I won’t look away.

Then Raiden starts.

It all started with a glance
I knew you were everything.
The warnings and threats
Didn’t mean a thing.
I hid my eyes and hid my fangs
I wouldn’t watch you bleed.
I’ll take this love to the grave
You’re all that I need.


Trace steps in again.
I won’t look away
I won’t look away

Raiden holds out his hand to me and waves me to him.

I’ll take you once
I’ll have you twice
Or it will be every fucking time
That I have you on your back
Or just in my mind.
These aren’t just my memories


Trace screams

That choke me, I can’t breathe.

Then Raiden sings and Trace screams the next line together and Vivi, Lizzy and I swoon.

I’m begging you, please don’t ever leave.


When the song is over, I run up to a sweat dripping Raiden and throw my arms around him. “I love you!”
“I love you too, Lilac,” he says, catching his breath.
“Want a drink?”
“A water would be good.” He combs his damp hair back, and I kiss his lips.
“I’ll be right back!” I run into the kitchen, grab some water and pour a shot of tequila, putting the salt shaker between my cleavage and grabbing a lime wedge to put it in my mouth. I scamper out to where he’s talking to Bane. He turns to me, his eyebrows raise and he grins.
“Well, well, well. Looks like I’m doing a shot too?” He bends down and licks my neck and sprinkles some salt on it. Then takes the shot and tips it back, licking the salted part of me and biting the lime still in my mouth. He pulls it out and drops it on the floor before he moves back. “Mmmm, delicious.”
“Yeah, princess. But next time, if you don’t have enough to share with the class, don’t bring just one” Bane teases, looking at my mouth.
I look back at him scandalized. “Bane! Inappropriate!”
Raiden laughs.
Because it’s my night, we get to do anything I want, which to Jumper’s disappointment, isn’t truth or dare. We all gather on the couches to watch movies.
“It’s my birthday, my choice!” I reiterate.
Trace sights. “I’m just sayin’. Scary faces at night are a bad idea.”

Ali Lucia Sky is the author of The Powers That Be series. She lives in Southern California with her husband and a house full of kitty cats and a yard full of crows.
 
She loves laughing, drinking good coffee, vegan food, and supporting animal rescues.
When she isn’t writing or dreaming of new stories, she can be found planning her next vacation because traveling is life.
 
If you encounter her in the wild, don’t be offended if she should run away. She’s timid with strangers, but can be plied with shiny things and pictures of your cat or dog.
 
She’s a weirdo like that.

Title: Raiden

Series: Somnolence
Author: Ali Lucia Sky
Genre: Rockstar Romance, Paranormal Romance, New Adult
Release Date: June 6, 2022
Cover Design: Marcos Nogueira
I never expected to see my favorite rock band standing in the office of my high school getting their schedules. Kids my age aren’t known for touring the world and making music for the masses, but Somnolence is.
They welcome me. Raiden takes me in, loves me… it’s like a dream. Until darker forces, nightmares, and their own dark appetites come for me.

Jumper walks over and points to the schedules in my hand. “We need to move on to those, but karma’s punishing Jonah for being a dickwad. He can’t open his locker.”

I glance over and see him fighting with it. I struggle with the good voice and bad voice in my mind. I want to make him suffer for being a prick, but my feet are already moving me toward him because I’m a good person. “Do you need a hand?”

“Are you offering to stroke me off?” Jonah asks, with frustration heavy in his tone.

“No.” I push him from his locker, grabbing his slip. “But I will see if it’s your charming personality that the lock is put off by or if the combo is just wrong.”

The rest of the guys chuckle and a second later, I spin the combination and the door opens. I look at Jonah and arch an eyebrow. “It’s not it, it’s you.”

“Good to know. Keep the slip, stalker. You can open my locker from now on.” He slams it shut and moves to the other guys.

“Aren’t you worried about me snooping through it and selling your stuff on auction sites?” I ask full of snark.

“I don’t plan to put anything in there, so no.” He looks at me over his shoulder like I’m a bug.

“Whatever, asshole. Let’s get this tour over. I need clothes for tonight and an excuse for not having my school work done.” I power walk by all of them.

“Nice going, Duke of Douche. Our tour guide is getting the impression that we are all assclowns because of you,” Jumper says.

I don’t slow down. Over my shoulder I say, “The library is just up here. It’s two stories. Study rooms have no windows or locks. IF you plan to do anything in those rooms, lean against them or put a chair under the knob. Don’t try to make out in the stacks. Someone is always watching. And I’m not talking about your notoriety. I mean that people here at PHS are hungry for gossip. Nothing stays secret forever.”

“Why do you need clothes for the night?” Raiden asks.

“I have a father that believes homelessness is a punishment. So I can’t go home tonight,” I answer, before thinking better of it. Of course, all they would have to do is ask around and someone would tell them. As I said, there are no secrets here.

“Now…” I continue. “The cafeteria is further down this hall. The taco bar is to die for. Don’t bother with the buffet. The roast beef is disgusting, but the taco bar is an A+. Develop a taco obsession and love yourself for it.”

“That’s what she said,” Trace coughs.

“I’m really good with a fish taco.” Jumper wiggles his eyebrows.

I cringe and spin around. “You know, if it smells like fish it’s not fresh. You should pass and find one that isn’t so old and nasty.”

Raiden chuckles, his eyes are hot looking. “I hear that when it’s fresh, it smells like lilacs.”

I blush. I’m wearing an essential oil that smells like lilacs.

I turn away from his lusty look. “The cafe is, of course, seated by cliques. You will have to weigh out your options later today. I don’t see you sitting with the jocks. But any one of the chicks that sit in this room are going to want to be all over what you have going on there.” I circle my finger in their general direction. “It’s going to be a regular old feeding frenzy.”

“Where do you sit?” Jumper asks.

“Vivi and I sit on our own, back on the left, fourth table by the window. We aren’t part of any of the cool kids. Well, she is the coolest kid in this school. I don’t know why she hangs out with me. You will like her. She likes… males.” I bite my lip and taste the split part reopen and bleed.

Trace’s head tips to the side, seeming to catch something in my voice. “Does she?”

“Vivi’s sweet. She’s sensitive. She’s really easy to take advantage of though,” I say with steel in my statement.

Jumper nods.

Jonah snorts. “Your friend’s a slut, we got it.”
