 RESISTANCE (Bloodlines #3)

(Sawyer's Story, Releasing Late 2014)


My name is Sawyer Crown, I own Bloodlines Tattoo Parlor, despise drama, and have a penchant for broken women. It's a habit I intend to kick.
The arrangement had been simple. Clara and I sleep together if and when we wanted too. We were always best friends first. We raised Allie together with love. Four years into it did people assume we were married- yes. Did people assume I was Allie's father- sure. Did I love every second of that- most definitely.
Then my world exploded. Clara left me. Moved on. I'm supposed to too. I just haven’t figured the moving on part out quite yet. The heart wants what it wants right? Or maybe the mind want what it wants for the heart. All of those scenarios are bullshit though. Clara went for the gold. She carved out the happiness she needed, wanted.
Now it’s my turn.

I have been looking forward to this book since Tug of War and Objective only made it worse! SWAYER!!! I was thoroughly in love with him before, he was every woman's dream guy, after reading Resistance it just made me fall in love with him all over again! K. Larsen doesn't disappoint. This continuation of Pepper/ Magnolia's story is fantastic and you want everything to work out and hoping it will work out, but even NOW your just don't know what is in store for her. She is so broken and he is so perfect but will he be able to glue her back together and make her whole again. That is something I kept asking myself all through this book. I just never knew!

This is written mostly all in Sawyers POV. For those who may not have read the previous books Sawyer is the co owner of Bloodlines Tattoo shop, in love with the other owner and the non-biological father to Allie the other owner's daughter. In the Prelude and the 1st chapter we relive the crushing heart break he went through in Tug of War. He struggles to recover from the blow and makes an effort to become himself again. We witness his healing process and the life altering moment when he first meets Pepper.

We first meet Pepper when she comes into the bar and asks Sawyer "Truth or Lie?". Though Sawyer didn't think he was at all interested at first he was soon caught in her snare with in the first few seconds. One night is all she is willing to give him or any man. When their interlude is over Pepper is gone fast. Sawyer doesn't... can't forget her. When fate pushes them together again it's Game On! He works hard using all his charm to get her to go out with him and turn their fun time into something she doesn't think she can handle anymore.

Hard truths and secrets hit home for the both of them. A huge test to how much he loves her and if he can handle what lays ahead is thrown at his feet. Pepper needs to find out if she can be that person Sawyer claims he can see. After reading the first two books and getting to know these two characters this book is so much deeper. It makes your chest ache. It can be read alone and be OK, but If you want it to grip you and make you feel how much pain Sawyer is in, how hard all this is on Pepper you NEED to read the first two. K. Larsen has weaved such an amazing story about these characters that  they have become real. Her writing doesn't stall or make you wonder what the heck you just read. It is clear and the story, the heart break and pain, the fear and distress are all believable. I would recommend not only this book but the whole series to anyone who loves a good read.

TUG OF WAR (Bloodlines #1)

Impulsive, YES. Irresponsible, SURE. Necessary, PROBABLY. Going to end badly, most likely. Does any of that matter to me, no. I decided that I can't please everyone so this week my only goal is to please me. I’m a selfish cow but I can’t seem to help it. I’m Clara Lord. I own Bloodline’s Tattoo Parlor, have a filthy mouth, no filter and a really strong objection to bossy idiots, pet names and wealthy men.
You will hate me, love me or love to hate me but either way it doesn’t matter. Everything I touch turns to crap and it’s all my fault. See, I lived through hell. Then I escaped hell and carefully spent the next eight years crafting a perfect little life until Domini Napoli screwed it all up. Now nothings right. Everything’s wrong and all my secrets are coming out.

OBJECTIVE (Bloodlines #2)


My story started out cliché, good girl falls for bad boy, but one wrong move changed all that. Turns out the good girl doesn’t save the bad boy. My story goes from cliché to risqué to mind blowing. My story is different from all the others because the events of my story led me to one objective.
Remembering him comes in dreams and flashbacks that I can't control. I tell myself it’s time to let go...but moving on from him is impossible when I still see our lives in my head. 
When you kill your soul mate you don’t ever really recover. 
A year of trying to forget or rather move past it has taught me that you can't. Its an impossibility to move on from that kind of horrific form of betrayal. If you you’re too selfish or scared for suicide, like me, you learn to wake up every morning and follow routine. One foot in front of the other, day after day. 
Hollow. Lifeless. Haunted. Loving him was like the sun on a summer day. Living without him is like slowly burning to death. Torture.
A Bloodlines Novel. 
*Note Tug of War is the 1st in the Bloodlines books, each book can be read as a stand alone book.*


TARGET 84 (Bloodlines #4)

(Bentley's Story, Releasing Early 2015)


My first kill was at sixteen. One might think that’s young but I'd been trained for two years before I was allowed to execute a human target on my own. I won’t ever forget him. Jackson Manning was testifying in a human trafficking case and someone didn’t want him to be heard.  I'd been sloppy and careless, but excited and if I'm honest, a little turned on too. I’d found myself rather curious staring at his unmoving body. I’d been scolded for my carelessness but it didn’t matter. I’d had a taste of the real thing and I thirsted for more. My desire, my obsession took on a new form that day. It wasn’t a goal I was working towards anymore, it was tangible now. 
It is my life.
I am an assassin. I don't know my targets or why they're targeted. I am commissioned to kill without question and I am paid grandly for the service I provide. I get a text with a name and an address. I watch them. I wait. I become who I need to be. I seduce them if necessary to get close enough to execute. 
I love my job, or  loved my job. Everything changed when I was assigned: ATF Agent Bentley James, last known location Christiansburg, VA.





I have a weird addiction to goat cheese and chocolate martinis, not together though.
I adore my dog. He is the most awesome snuggledoo in the history of dogs.
I hate dirty dishes.
I like sarcasm and funny people.
I should probably be running right now... because of the goat cheese....and stuff.
I've been told I'm the mistress of Snark. I like that.
