The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself by Nicholas Tanek

Okay, so one actually kills themselves in the book.

The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself pulls you into the early 90's New York City rave scene, in all its chaotic, psychedelic glory. The narrator grabs you by your wrist and drags you behind two teenage lovers from New Jersey as they tumble through a whirlwind of reckless hedonism that eventually spirals into a dark, devastating world of drug addiction and heartbreak.

As a teenager, Lynn cried, "No one is ever going to write something for me."

Nearly two decades later, in the aftermath of Hurricane sandy, Nicholas did just that. The gesture came too late for our unlikely heroine, but his heart was in the right place. A broken heart... but a true love.

Reunited after years apart, Lynn and Nicholas embraced their love and sexuality, and embrace each other, despite trouble past, despite troubled illness, despite all their imperfections and mistakes. They share the kind of honest and shameless connection that few have had the honor of knowing, and most would never understand.

"We're not hurting anyone. We're just living life without caring what anyone thinks about us, without caring about the consequences."

"It's the coolest way to kill ourselves," Lynn said.

So turn the page, and pull the trigger.


Oh wow , I don't even know where to start with this book! I'm not going to lie, I had a hard time reading it until I got to 40% of it and then my emotions really started kicking in. I went from laughing out loud to being pissed, but the raw emotion in which Nicholas Tanek writes about Lynn is over whelming.

Okay, let's see... first of all the love in this book over whelmed me to the core, like I said earlier. To read about how Lynn and Nicholas first met, their first date, their non conventional relationship, and finally the heart breaking ending. Boy was I bawling my eyes out!

Lynn's love for Nicholas even at the beginning was so true even at a young age but as I kept reading more about Nickolas, he loved being in love, but it was finally when he and Lynn reconnected years later that he knew she was his heart.

This book deals with a lot of drugs, sex, abusive relationship, heartbreak, and other issues that I don't want to say because I hate spoilers and I rather you read this book and find out for yourself. I must warn you it's a long read, it took me 3 weeks to finish this puppy, now for some of you it may not be your cup of tea but I really do encourage you reading this book. It's written with so much love and by the end I really do think you'll end up loving it. 

Thank You Nicholas for sharing Lynn with us, and to sharing the love you both had.

I Give Nickolas Tanek

Clipped Wings by Helena Hunting

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.

Coverd 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 past...

This is an emotional love story that follows the touch-and-go- relationship of Hayden and Tenley; two young people who desperately want to love and be loved but are afraid to completely let go of their pasts.


I give Helena Hunting a standing ovation!!!

My dream came true when I found out Clipped Wings was becoming a book, so I did the only thing I could think of at the moment... I screamed and jumped for joy like a crazy person. To say my hubby was not overjoyed with me acting a fool in public is a understatement. But he forgave me and you will understand that later. lol 

This was a long time coming, since I was a huge fan of hers since Twilight FanFiction. No... you don't understand people, this story made me addicted to her writing along with a few others but Helena Hunting's writing is unforgettable, she sucked me into her writing vortex. 

The chemistry her characters have is hot but the kind of hot that will leave you scorching for more, the sex scenes had me fanning my face with pure hottness and jumping my husbands bones more times than I can count!  Hence why he easily forgave me for acting a fool.

Okay my little Saucy Peep's, let's get down to business...

Tenley Page is a young beautiful devastate broken girl, who's trying to survive each day with her memories of her horrific past, which she can't get away from.

I added Hayden Stryker to My List of Book Boyfriends because
he's is a lickable, sexy, pierced, tattoo, reformed badboy, and let's not forget his sweet tooth for cupcakes. *grins* He too has a dark past in which he hasn't completely healed from and still shoulders blame.

He is drawn to Tenley as she is to him but she seems to want to hold him at arms length, afraid of what he will think about her when her past comes to light. Once she gets a taste of Hayden, there's no going back for her, she can't seem to get enough of him, and Hayden wants more of her.

"I just want the pain to stop. You make it so much better... being with you makes it better," 
she whispered.
~ Tenley

"For the first time in years, I wanted... something. Anything as long as it was real."
~ Hayden

Hayden makes her forget all her pain even if it is temporary and not only that but when Tenley asks Hayden to put a beautifully elaborate tattoo across her back, he reluctantly agrees. He see's a flash of defiance and spunk in Tenley, and in turn she see's Hayden just as damage as herself and that helps her forget her loss for just a moment. 

There were times I wish I could of shook the hell out of Hayden and Tenley to see what was in front of them but their anguish held them back. 
The pace of the relationship in the beginning is good, not to fast or slow but when it picks up, it goes full steam head on. I don't want to give any spoilers away but there is drama besides their dark past.

 Cliffie at the end!!!

Yes people, I will be the first to admit I threw a temper tantrum, my poor hubby was at the wrong place, wrong time. I threw my kindle at him and told him, "make your own damn food!" LoL
But don't worry, I apologized.

Helena Hunting you did a awesome job with Clipped Wings and I can't wait to get my hands on Ink Armor. I would recommend this book hands down to everyone!!!

I give Helena Hunting
