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.
Sawyer, Sawyer, Sawyer what can I say. I didn't know what to expect from Sawyer after the whole Clara disaster. I knew I wanted him to have a happy ending because he deserved it. Don't kill me if this review is short or rambly...I had surgery on my hand and Im on pain meds.
I read Objective what seems like forever ago, I loved Magnolia/Pepper. Her story was awesome. I was thrilled with these two characters coming together. It makes sense. As I started this journey I wasn't as sucked in as the first two but I know K. Larsen had to have something up her sleeve because If you have read anything she's written you would understand. Sawyer is still being moody and kind of an ass, I mean after the whole Clara thing I could see why. I love that his love for Allie never wavered and was always there for her rain or shine.
Allie, gah I love that little girl. She just makes the story. Her wit and sassiness were perfect. Clara, well at first she was gettig on my nerves because she was being an asshole to Pepper and Sawyer.
Pepper, this girl, like I said I loved her book and in this book there were times I wanted to smack her but I completely understood why. I love her banter with Sawyer. It takes sometime for these two to see what is in front of them but damn when they figure it out....AWESOME!
My only thing is this, the author says these can be read as stand alones but I truly feel like you need to at least read Objective first. Why? Well there are things that confused even me and I had read Objective, granted a while ago but still. I feel like if someone just picks up this one they might feel a bit lost. Other than that I feel that K. Larsen once again has shown that she can write a great story. One full of love, angst, excitement and swoon.
K LARSEN- BLOODLINES SERIES INFORMATION
ALL BLOODLINES SERIES BOOKS CAN BE READ AS STANDALONES
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 thing...my 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.*

"Wow, one of my favorites this year. A real page turner ...." -Magic Within The Pages Book Blog Trailer:
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.
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.

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.
