 Just Pretending by Leah & Kate RooperJust Pretending (The Chicago Falcons #3) by Leah and Kate Rooper
Publication Date:  November 5, 2018
Publisher:  Entangled Teen Crush

It’s not easy being royal. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline wears her crown proudly, but between her duties and her overprotective big brother, the idea of romance is just a dream. But a chance encounter in Chicago changes all that….

Sure, seventeen-year-old Tyler Evans loves playing hockey, but he’s more concerned about providing for his dad and little sister. Then he meets Eva–and falls head-over-heels in love—and he has two more problems. One, she’s his best friend’s little sister. Two, she wears a crown.

But then Eva accidentally mistakes Tyler for a visiting prince, and for the first time, Tyler doesn’t feel like a nobody. He knows he has to tell her the truth…but not yet.

His plan? To keep up the royal charade as long as it takes to convince Eva he’s the guy for her. Even if he’s lying to everyone…including himself.

Disclaimer: May cause disillusionment. Those girls looking to find their Prince Charming might consider scouting out hockey rinks.

GUEST POST/DELETED SCENE

We’re including a deleted scene that occurs during one of the most intense moments of the book! This is the original scene when Tyler Evans’ charade of posing as Prince Tiberius is discovered. We loved this scene when we wrote it, and thought it was totally hilarious and fitting for Tyler’s best friend, Prince Daniel, who is super dramatic and hot-headed. Ultimately, we decided to re-write this scene to be less comedic and more serious so it would fit the tone of the book better. We still have a soft spot for this crazy, slapstick reveal 🙂

I push Tiberius’s long mop of hair out of my eyes and blink rapidly. I stare into the gaping faces of the banquet. Somehow in our tussle, we’d burst through the double doors back into the banquet hall. I can only imagine what we look like. I touch my lip, feel blood there. I want to look away but I can’t. All the eyes of the dinner party are on me…and the two princes in a heap beside me. Madison is front and centre, for once as stunned and silent as everyone else. The Queen Dowager looks like she might faint.

“What is going on?” Evangeline cuts through the fray, her voice sailing through the air like the toast of a glass. She looks so worried, and my heart aches. I did this to her.

“Tiberius,” she says and starts forward. “You’re hurt.”

Daniel leaps to his feet and blocks her path. “Don’t, Eva,” he says. “Don’t waste one more breath on that guy.”

“W-What?” Eva says, looking past Daniel at me.

“I caught him in the hallway,” Daniel says, not caring about the dignitaries and officials watching, “making out with some girl.”

Eva takes a small breath, her throat bobbing ever so slightly. Her eyes go blank and glossy. “T-Tiberius…is this true?”

Daniel steps toward her. “Don’t worry, Evans and I handled it. He’ll rue the day he messed with Daniel Sacachelli’s little sister.” He reaches for her, but she steps out of his grasp. She’s still looking behind him, her eyes trained on me.

“You…you made me believe that I was special,” she whispers. “That I was finally heard.” She steps around her brother.

“Eva, don’t,” Daniel says, trying to grab her arm again.

“Daniel!” she says, her voice escalating. He backs away from her.

Her steps are firm and deliberate as she walks toward me, still tangled up with the real Tiberius. I can’t look at her anymore. My body feels like an engine that’s run out of gas. There’s no more running, no more stories. There’s no Madison or Millie to dig me out of this one.

It’s time to face what I’ve done.

“Stand up,” she orders. A queen’s voice.

Tiberius and I both shuffle to our feet, eyes downcast.

“Evans, you can come—” Daniel says, but Eva holds up a single finger. He silences.

Then she strikes me across the face with the palm of her hand.

“Eva!” Daniel roars. “What are you doing?”

Eva’s whole body is shaking. Her teeth are gritted together and tendrils of hair have fallen loose around her face. “Was it all a lie?” she chokes.

“No,” I say. Because it wasn’t.

Daniel rushes over and throws an arm over my shoulder. “What the hell, Eva? Don’t take this out on Evans!”

My whole body shuts down. All I can do is bow my head. My cheek stings.

“Evans?” Eva says, blinking wildly. “You said you caught Tiberius with another…”

“Yeah,” Daniel says, releasing me and grabbing the scruff of Prince Tiberius’s collar. He gives a little peep. “Prince Tiberius? Your true love?”

“N-No…” Eva says, shaking her head and gesturing to me. “This is Prince Tiberius.”

But then the real Tiberius throws his head back and brays with laughter. “There is only ONE Prince Tiberius,” he says, his accent thick on every word. “And that is mou.”

“What the hell is going on here?” Daniel says, eyes flying between Eva and me. “Tyler…”

“Tyler,” Eva says, as if the word were toxic on her tongue. “Ty…”

Suddenly, Madison is beside Eva, gently touching her arm. “Eva, maybe we should let the boys get cleaned up…everyone’s watching.”

Eva doesn’t even acknowledge her. “Who,” she says, her voice cutting like a blade, “is Prince Tiberius?”

The real Prince Tiberius sweeps into a bow. “At your service, Your Highness.”

Eva grabs my chin and forces me to stare at her. “Then who are you?”

My words are more breath than voice. “Tyler Evans,” I say. “I’m…” I’m what? A hockey player? Daniel’s friend? A liar? All true, but they all feel so empty. “I’m nobody.”

“All this time,” she says, “you were lying to me?” Her hand falls from my face.

I stare at her pleadingly. “I only did it because…I wanted to be with you. I did it because…” I shake my head, feel my eyes start to sting. “Because I love you.”

“How can you possibly love me,” she breathes, “when everything about you is a lie?”

“Eva—” I reach for her hand.

“Don’t touch me!” she yells, her voice echoing through the ballroom.

“Someone tell me what the hell is going on,” Daniel says. His body tenses like a bow string. “Or I’m going to start making my own conclusions, and that’s not a good idea for anybody.”

“No,” Madison mumbles quietly, “it’s really not.”

“It’s my fault,” I choke out. “When I picked Eva up from the airport, I had lost Tiberius…so…so I pretended to be him.”

Slowly, Daniel looks between Eva and I. “You…you pretended to be Tiberius. Which means…” His gaze settles on me. “You’re the Tiberius that Eva is in love with.”

There are a hundred pairs of eyes on me, but there’s only one I care about. Eva looks at me as if I’m a stranger. As if we hadn’t laughed together, spilled our secrets to one another, felt the touch of each other’s body. And the look she’s giving me right now is worse than the absent glare from when I tried to talk to her with my hockey gear on.

“Please,” I gasp. “Let me explain.”

Daniel paces back and forth, before stopping at the nearest wall. He slams his fist against it, rattling the decorative swords on their wooden mount. Then he stills, and says in a dark voice, “Oh, Evans. The time for explaining is past.”

In a single instant, Daniel moves, snatching the swords down from the wall and brandishing one as if he were some medieval knight. A gasp goes up from the audience.

“What are you doing?” I cry.

Daniel slides one of the swords across the floor. It lands right at my feet. “Pick it up,” he says. “I want to fight you like a man.”

“Those are antiques!” the Queen Dowager cries.

“Shush!” Madison says. “This is getting good.”

I stare down at the polished sword by my feet. “Daniel, come on. Just listen to me—”

“No, you listen,” Daniel snarls. “Listen to the sound my sword makes as I sheath it in your flesh!” With an animalistic roar, Daniel rushes at me, sword above his head.

Instinct takes over, and I grab the sword at my feet. Just in time, I bring it up to clang with Daniel’s.

There are screams and shouts from the onlookers, but Daniel doesn’t care. He grunts and swings his sword again. I barely have a chance to block it. “D-Dan, stop!”

“You betrayed me!” he roars, going for my flank. I counter, the sing of metal sounding through the banquet hall. “You betrayed my sister!”

All my years of playing video games rush back to me, as I counter Daniel’s flurry of attack. Is Daniel really attacking me with a sword? This cannot be happening! With a roar of my own, I strike back, slashing at Daniel’s left arm. He doesn’t get his sword up in time, and it slices through his black coat.

He looks down at the tear, then back up at me. With newfound rage, Daniel surges forward. Clang, clang, clang, our swords smash against one another. I’m being pushed back, closer to the wall. The sword is heavy and my muscles scream as I block Daniel’s assault again and again. But I’m too slow, and I see Daniel’s sword arc up and then swing down—

“ENOUGH!”

A giant black mace swings through the air, blocking Daniel’s sword from shaving off one of my blond curls. I turn and stare at its wielder.

Evangeline.

She holds the big mace tightly, her body hunched over, breathing ragged. The suit of arms near us rattles, empty-handed, from where Eva must have grabbed the mace.

“Enough,” she says again. “Get out. All of you.”

No one moves. She arcs the mace up in the air and slams it down onto the floor. “GET OUT!”

Slowly, everyone starts murmuring and shuffling toward the door. Eva drops the mace and turns away, her head in her hands.

“Eva—” I say.

“Don’t.” Her body stiffens. “I believed you. Every word.” She looks back, just the peek of her face over her shoulder. “You could have believed in me too.”

I fall to the ground, head in my arms. I hear Daniel’s sword clang to the ground, then his heavy footsteps as he walks away. The bustle of the crowd dies down as everyone leaves, and then the lights go out, only the candles on the walls still burning.

I sit alone in the dark. The candles flicker on.

 Return to the series BuzzFeed compared to Ready Player One in the second book in a new fast-paced trilogy from New York Times bestselling authors Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller that’s perfect for fans of HBO’s Westworld

Simon would have done anything to save his best friend after a mysterious accident almost killed her–including follow her into a virtual world. And what he and Kat discovered there was more terrifying than they could have ever imagined. Unwitting hospital patients are being forced to test a device that lets VR be experienced with all five senses. The technology is so advanced that it’s deadly.

Now the world’s biggest tech corporation is hunting Simon and Kat while war rages in Otherworld, the virtual world it created. Determined to destroy the Company, Simon and Kat must join forces with a hacker, a gangster, and a digital entity. But as they battle to save two worlds, they uncover an all-new threat to our world: the Company’s latest creation, an augmented-reality game called OtherEarth. Not only does OtherEarth kill, it has the power to erase the line between what’s real and what’s fantasy.

Review

While I loved the first book, this one suffered from Middle Book Syndrome. It did a good job of recapping what happened but most of the book was spent with the characters within the game of OtherWorld itself. Many chapters were spent describing new simulated characters, new Children, new worlds within the game. I felt there was just too much time spent describing things that did not matter to the overall story. Hence the reason I said this was a true Second Book.

Regardless, this was such a fast paced read that it was over before I knew it. The story took twists and turns I was not prepared for. It certainly set up for the next book, which I hope promises to be big.  If you are interested in a gripping read that has echos of Ready Player One and Warcross, you need to check out this book.

When everything has been taken from you, what else is there to do but run?

So that’s what Annabelle does—she runs from Seattle to Washington, DC, through mountain passes and suburban landscapes, from long lonely roads to college towns. She’s not ready to think about the why yet, just the how—muscles burning, heart pumping, feet pounding the earth. But no matter how hard she tries, she can’t outrun the tragedy from the past year, or the person—The Taker—that haunts her.

Followed by Grandpa Ed in his RV and backed by her brother and two friends (her self-appointed publicity team), Annabelle becomes a reluctant activist as people connect her journey to the trauma from her past. Her cross-country run gains media attention and she is cheered on as she crosses state borders, and is even thrown a block party and given gifts. The support would be nice, if Annabelle could escape the guilt and the shame from what happened back home. They say it isn’t her fault, but she can’t feel the truth of that.

Through welcome and unwelcome distractions, she just keeps running, to the destination that awaits her. There, she’ll finally face what lies behind her—the miles and love and loss…and what is to come.

“The time for Kiero’s reign in prosperity is over.”

Six years before the Black Dawn Rebellion, Adair Stratton and Emory Fae are following in their parent’s footsteps and living at The Academy, a home for those who are gifted.  The pressure to uphold the future of their parent’s dream falls on them. An outcast and feared by most, Adair longs to break away from the expectations dictating his future. Even if Emory tries to make him see differently. An unexpected group of friends keep him there, but as whispers of unexplained disappearances start reaching from the capital, Adair starts to doubt The Academy is all it seems.

An unexpected visit ignites new tensions as the roguish king from across the Black Sea, Tadeas Maher of the Shattered Isles, and his heir, Marquis Maher sail to Kiero. Notorious for their pirating and wrath- for the first time in years, they demand the Fae’s listen to their proposition for a new treaty, holding the news of Nei’s father’s abrupt death over them. Caught in the middle of politics- Adair and Emory, with the help of their best friends Brokk and Memphis search for the one thing that matters most- finding out the truth.

In this gripping prequel to Black Dawn, their world is tipped upside down as unlikely alliances are made. War ravages through Kiero and is torn apart by acclaimed Kings. Through the throes of betrayal, lies, hidden magic and love, Adair is faced with a life changing decision- to fight or to bow to the darkness within him.

Review:

If you have ever wanted a prequel that would knock your socks off…. look no further. This one had it all. It was a stunning example of what a prequel should be. It was brilliantly written with all of the world building I was hoping for. If there is one thing McCartney can do, it is world build. Well, she can certainly write, there is no question about that, but she can also write in a way that is so fluid and magical that I felt comfortable in this story. I know that sounds odd to say but hear me out. The way she brought me back into this story made it feel like I was snuggling under a warm blanket.

This story helped to fill in some blanks I had left over from book 1 – Black Dawn. With that, I highly recommend giving this novella a chance, especially if you have read book 1. You won’t be disappointed. The characters are even more developed and their character arcs are ones you won’t want to miss.

Have I enticed you yet? I hope you give this one a read! I highly recommend.

He has no voice, or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn’t know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind.

Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall.

His job is to protect his Offside. Let her do the shooting.

Until a human kills her…

Sixteen year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx invade, annihilating entire cities, taking control of the Earth. Isolated in the wilderness, Raven and her friends have only a fragment of instruction from the human resistance.

Shelter in place.

Which seems like good advice at first. Stay put. Await rescue. Raven doesn’t like feeling helpless but what choice does she have?

Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.

Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit, their survival comes to depend on trusting each other…

For the past three years, Brynna has been patrolling the streets of Forcadel as a masked vigilante, protecting the innocent and beating up bad guys. Her current target is Lord Beswick, a slumlord businessman who keeps the townsfolk in a vicious poverty cycle. But one fateful evening, she’s captured by Felix, the captain of the king’s guard, and told a shocking truth: her father and brother are dead, and she needs to hang up her mask and become queen.

Before long, she negotiates a deal with Felix: attend to her royal duties during the day and continue her vigilante mission to take out Lord Beswick at night – at least until her coronation. But the politics of Forcadel are as volatile as the streets, and Brynna isn’t sure whom she can trust in the castle. With two royals dead in less than a month, she must use all her wits to make sure she isn’t the third.

The City of Veils is the first book in the Princess Vigilante trilogy, an epic YA Fantasy from S. Usher Evans, author of the Lexie Carrigan Chronicles, Madion War Trilogy, and Empath. It will be released by Sun’s Golden Ray Publishing on April 16, 2019.

Pages: 200

Annabelle doesn’t know who she has left to trust. After being captured by King Robert of Elderan, a brutal ruler who will stop at nothing to make sure witches never rule the country again, Annabelle has been cut off from everyone and everything
— including her powers as a witch.
Until Angelo, a member of her shifter guard, arrives to save her.
When the attempt fails, Angelo’s left mortally wounded and the King is determined to make Annabelle pay. While Annabelle nurses Angelo back to health, the other members of her guard, Lio and Rhyion, devise a plan to overthrow King Robert — and Annabelle finds her feelings for all three members of her guard deepening as intensely as her desire to see King Robert fal.
Annabelle is a witch, the last of her kind, and it’s her destiny to return Elderan to its
former glory. But how can she focus on saving her entire country when she’s worried about Angelo’s safety? How can she topple an abusive King when he is equally as powerful as her?
…and how can she stay focused as she’s falling even deeper in love with the men who protect her?

Author: Anna Hill
Pub. Date: August
11, 2018
Publisher: Anna Hill
Formats: eBook
Pages: 237

Annabelle has always been happy with her quiet, normal life. Like most people in Elderan, extreme poverty is all Annabelle has ever known. After humans seized power from the witches 100 years ago, Elderan collapsed along with the witches’ reign — but Annabelle has everything she needs in her boyfriend and parents. 
Until one day she doesn’t.
When Annabelle’s parents are mysteriously murdered, she finds herself barely able to
keep it together — and it only gets worse when a wolf shifter named Angelo arrives and explains to her that she’s not nearly as normal as she oncethought.
Annabelle is a witch, the last of her kind, and it’s her destiny to help return Elderan
to its former glory. But how can she focus on saving her entire country when she’s coming apart at the seams? How can she trust Angelo and his pack mates, Lio and Rhyion? 
…and how can she keep herself from falling in love with them?

Excerpt:
“You’ll never know how grateful I am for what you did,” I told Angelo. “I
know you’re fated to me, and I know you feel like it’s your duty… I understand
it’s your responsibility in your mind, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t an
incredible thing to do. You would give your life for me… That’s not a small
thing.”
 
“You know… you’re right. I do feel it’s my responsibility. And as such, I
would do it no matter what. Even if I didn’t want to, but… I do want to. Of my
own volition. It has nothing to do with fate or responsibility.”
 
“How do you mean?”
 
“For me… I want to save you not just because I’m your fated protector. I
wanted to save you because I couldn’t stand the thought of harm coming to you.
Do you remember when we spoke about your love for Lio romantically, and I said
I didn’t care about you loving me romantically?”
 
“Yes…” I answered quietly, my heart thumping because I could see where
this was going.
 
“Well, I was being truthful then. I didn’t think it mattered to me. But
after you were kidnapped… 
Something came over me. I realized I do love you… so
much. You are the only woman that I see, the only one I think about, the only
one I could ever imagine being with.” He put one hand on the back of my head,
his fingers digging into my hair. “I know that you love Lio, and that still
doesn’t bother me. Your love for him does not take anything from my love for
you. But I needed you to know that. As I laid there, nearly dying, the only
thing that I could think about was that I was going to die before I could tell
you how I felt. So I needed you to hear it, before anything else happens to
me.”
