How did that famous quote from that old movie go? Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world...

Well, this was a biker bar, not a gin joint, and there wasn't really a town nearby. But to have my long-lost stepbrother show up in the very place I'd washed up a month earlier like flotsam from a shipwreck - that was the same kind of irony.


Thank God he wouldn't recognize me. I'd been ten years old when he last saw me seventeen years ago. Too bad for my battered heart that I now recognized what I'd only sensed as a child. My stepbrother the rock star was hot.

Excerpt
Rex

“Holy fuck!”

I was lifting a mug of ice-cold draft beer for my first swig when the exclamation from our manager, Mark Brent, caused me to miss and splash half of it over my hands as I flinched. The sound of Mark’s chair hitting the floor as he jumped to his feet accompanied his exclamation. I jerked my head up, getting ready to rip him a new one, only to see him running out the front door of the bar. I set my remaining beer down quickly and then followed Mark at a brisk pace, along with the others.

As soon as I was out the front door, the rest of the band members clustering around me, I saw the reason for Mark’s alarm. The bus was on fire.

Joe, the driver had an inadequate-looking fire extinguisher aimed underneath the vehicle, where black smoke roiled out unchecked by the foam. As soon as the guys saw what was going on, pandemonium broke loose. Unlike bigger bands, ours traveled with no crew. Our instruments and accessories, all but a drum kit, were in the luggage hold, perilously near the fire. Ike, the drummer, was the only one who didn’t run to the bus to rescue equipment, besides me.

I froze for half a second, and then used lungs more used to belting out rock music to yell. “Guys! Get away from there! It could go up. Holy shit, it’s just things.” Axel, Kirk and Cole ignored me, while Mark took off after them. I turned to Ike. “Call 911!”

“Rex, take a look around. There’s no town. This is just a shitty little biker bar in the middle of BFE-nowhere Wyoming. Where do you think a fire crew is going to come from?”

I lifted my gaze and stared out at the highway stretching from the east horizon to the west. Ike was right. Not a building in sight, other than Smokey’s Roadhouse, the bar where we’d stopped for lunch. The smoke from under the bus was dissipating though. Maybe the fire extinguisher had been enough after all.

Mark had managed to pull Cole, the bass player, away from the bus, but the two guitarists were still banging on the luggage hold, as if that would make it magically open. I couldn’t blame them. Between them, they probably had thousands of dollars’ worth of back line in that hold.

By rights it should have been in a crew bus. Even as I watched the bus destroy what might be our last chance to make it before some of the guys bailed on me, I knew it was my fault. Extinction wasn’t just our band name. It was a real possibility for our careers if this damn fire meant the bus wasn’t road-worthy.

Amy

He didn’t recognize me, thank God. I couldn’t afford for anyone to know who or where I was. After I calmed down, I reasoned it out. It had been seventeen years since he’d last seen me, and I was only ten at the time. There wasn’t a snowball’s chance in hell he’d know me now. Not only had I grown up, I’d grown up hard.

On the other hand, I knew what that cool once-over meant. His eyes lingered on my cleavage a second too long. If I knew men, and I had good reason to, he’d make a play for me sometime tonight. I couldn’t let that happen under any circumstances. It would just be too weird, even though our relationship was less than nothing.

His mother had married my father nineteen years ago. Like most of the women Dad attracted, she took off soon, though she did manage to last two years. She took her seventeen-year-old son with her. She hugged me before she left, and whispered, “I wish I could take you with me, honey, but he’d come after us. I’ll report him to the authorities.”

I had no idea what that meant, then. And if she did, it went nowhere. My dad needed a substitute punching bag, and I got nominated by default. Whenever I hid from him, I pretended my big stepbrother, Rick, would find me and take me with him this time. But his last words to me, “See you kid,” never came true. I hadn’t seen him again, until now.


The men at the table with Rick called him Rex. I’d changed my name too. During the course of an otherwise slow afternoon, I gathered a few bits of information as I served them. They were a band—a rock band I assumed—and their bus had caught fire in our parking lot. It looked like it wasn’t going anywhere soon. My boss, Smokey, said it would probably take the rest of the day for a mechanic to get here to assess the damage. Highway 80 had plenty of traffic, but it was a long stretch of just about nothing from Rawlins to Rock Springs.





Author Bio


Like you, I'm a reader. When I read a good story with characters I can connect with, my everyday existence fades into the background as I enter a world that may contain exotic locations, adventure and excitement. And, if I can be totally honest with you, in my favorite stories I can fall in love for a while with an impossibly gorgeous guy who is the best lover imaginable.

So, maybe it won't come as a surprise that in my books you'll find hot alpha male book-boyfriends, sassy heroines who are much more clever and beautiful than I am, and stories I hope will make you laugh and cry while reading them, as I did while writing them. Oh, and some scenes you may want to role-play with your lover.

I was warned about Tristan Cole.

“Stay away from him,” people said.
“He’s cruel.”
“He’s cold.”
“He’s damaged.”

It’s easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster.

But I couldn’t do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him because it also lived inside of me.

We were both empty.
We were both looking for something else. Something more.
We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays.

Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.

I'm sitting here with so many thoughts running through my head. 
This was one powerful and beyond captivating book
Wow! 
Still speechless and when I start to think 
about the whole story all over again, 
my eyes tear up and my heart starts to hurt. 

I'm not going to delve deeper into the story beyond what the blurb says. 
It has to be experienced because there's so many twist and turns. 
The only way to do that is to go into this book blind. 
All I can say about the story-line is that it's about loss
 and how fate can intervene and 
intertwine with people's lives in the most unusual way.

The two main characters Tristan and Elizabeth experience loss
 that's incomprehensible. They both deal with loss in their own different ways.
Tristan, being a man and feeling guilty pushes everyone who loves 
him away and isolates himself. 
Doesn't care what people think of him. 
He pretty much acts like a self centered jerk.
Elizabeth needs support and people around her. 
She needs to talk about things and her feelings. 
She also has a huge lifeline in the form of her daughter, Emma.

When Tristan and Elizabeth collide with each other it changes both their lives forever. 
Again, this was such an emotional ride. 
To experience these two broken souls finding someone to hold on to. 
They were finally able to share their grief and memories with someone. 
To be with someone and to just let go and breathe. 
What first began as a sexual relationship to deal with the pain of losing someone, 
suddenly becomes something more deeper and magical.

This was my first book by Brittainy C. Cherry, 
and I'm thrilled to say it will definitely not be my last. 
What a story she has created. 
It was mind blowing, breathtaking and beautiful. 
I could go on and on. 
It had me in tears one moment and the next laughing and smiling. 
It was as raw as it was honest. 
The secondary characters were equally important and strong as 
the two main characters. 
The story evoked feelings within me through out the whole thing.
 Especially Tristan and Elizabeth's growing friendship turned
 relationship was very emotional and moving to me. 
I'm so glad I took a chance on this book. 
I finally know what a book hangover feels like.

Excerpt

“I’d like to be a part of this mission,” D said the words before he could stop them. Shaking his head to clear his brain, he stood back. Did he really just volunteer? He’d gotten what he needed. Now all he had to do was stick close to the club owner.

“You’re always a part of the missions. You’re transport,” Xee reminded as if he’d gone and lost his mind.

Shaking his head, he walked up to Xee, making sure she understood his intentions. He didn’t like the way Draven was eyeing him.

“I want to be on the ground for this one.”

The female’s eyes got big. Even Draven and Gabe’s eyebrows shot skyward.

“What?”

Xee tried placing her hand on his forehead, but he easily dodged her.

“You feeling okay?”

He was fine. It wasn’t like anyone truly cared either way. He stuck to his shit, they stuck to theirs.

“I’m good. I just want…” What the hell did he want? Oh, right, to get closer to Phineas, fuck Jorunn out of his system, and in the end, be one step closer to getting his sister back. Wait, what? Fuck Jorunn? No. Hell, no! That was not part of the plan. Dick says otherwise. His dick was fucking stupid. “I just want to ensure we get the Sahidic and tell Eremiel he can go fuck himself.” Yeah, you sound so convincing. He never bragged he was up for the next Academy Award. It was convincing enough, though.

“Well, fuck me and call me Sally. Dietrich is trying to be a model citizen.” Xee laughed.

“Is that an invite, girl?” he growled.

Xee knew him better than that. She was tied to Gabe, he knew, but he wanted to remind everyone listening that he was still a dick.

“Dude, seriously, sooo not my type,” Xee quipped back.

“You ain’t got a type, girl.”

Xee cracked a grin. “How do you figure that?”

Dietrich turned his attention to Gabe, who was standing with his arms crossed, trying his best to look badass. Draven quietly left, taking Faith with him. The wolf was probably going in search of his mate.

“You’re literally fucking Death,” he deadpanned.

Angel once believed her soul belonged to the Devil. Now she willingly gives every part of her—mind, body and soul—to the man whose love mends her a little more each day.

Ethan knows Hell is no place for an angel, especially not his Angel. He would sacrifice his soul every day of his life in order to save hers. Fuelled by an almost obsessive desire, their need for each other ignites a passion that most couples could find destructive, but instead the flames of their possessive vigilance only seem to feed the fire of their insatiable hunger. The slaying of Ethan’s demons has made their fortress of love stronger than ever.

But Angel continues to paper over the cracks of her troubled past, running from the demons that chase her and the nightmares that plague her. When a twist of fate forces her to confront them, she finally begins to accept that her repressed memories need to be explored in order to attain the peace she craves.

But in her search for Nirvana, Angel discovers far more than buried memories. What happens when the worst nightmare you’ve ever encountered is the one you wake up in? When the past comes face to face with the present to reveal a web of diseased secrets and lies?
And the only road you can take leads to one destination … Hell.

BFN-Excerpt

“Angel?” Ethan’s low, husky tones startled me. He stood in the doorway wearing nothing but a pair of low-slung, faded jeans, the sight of him inciting my taste buds to drool desirously, like chocolate melting on my tongue. “Come here,” he instructed.

 Obeying instantly, I unfurled my legs and moved across the room toward him.  He gazed at me, his expression still inscrutable, and then slowly he moved around to my back. “Close your eyes.”

 Again, I complied without hesitation. I felt something soft brush gently against my eyelids, a smooth, silky fabric blocking out all remaining light as it tightened against my skin. He was blindfolding me. My heart struck my chest wall with a sudden instinctive foretaste of what was to come. The blindfold, his insistence that I wear my red shoes, his near-naked form in the doorway, suggested only one thing. But his talk of my needing to learn a lesson, his tone, and impenetrable mood hinted at something different. Nonetheless, my skin prickled with eager expectation as I waited for my next instruction in the darkness behind my eyelids.

 Suddenly, his voice startled me. He was closer than I’d imagined, his breath warm against my ear, his smell … exquisite. “How does that make you feel?” Misreading the question, I nodded to let him know I was okay.

 “No, Angel. Tell me how it makes you feel.” His voice was slightly harsher than before, more demanding. I thought about what he wanted me to say, trying to tune in to the sensations I was feeling, but struggling.

“Restricted,” I said finally.

 “Anything else?” He’d shifted, his lips grazing the lobe of my other ear now.

 “Dependent.”

 “Think beyond the blindfold.”

My mind searched for the answer, and then after a beat I whispered, “Aware. I feel more aware.”

 “Of what?”

 “You.”

 “What is it about me you’re more aware of?”

 “How close you are … Your scent.”

 “My scent? And what does it smell like?”

 Hesitating, I scrambled for words to try and describe it, eventually arriving at, “You.”

 I felt him smile briefly against my cheek and then he was gone.

Teaser 2

Order Bound for Nirvana Here!



When I read the first book Bound For Hell in March,
 I fell instantly in love with Angel and Ethan. 
Their first encounter which lead to smoking hot sex 
in a closet with no spoken words between them, 
was intriguing and I could feel their lust for each other. 
The "one night stand" wasn't enough for either of them and turned into a relationship. Where two people learn about each other. 
But still with a lot of baggage from their past hiding beneath the surface. 
Which continues to be resolved and confronted in the second book Bound For Salvation.

And now here we are with the final book in the trilogy Bound For Nirvana. This was and had everything I needed and wanted in a book and in a series. There still was a lot of unanswered questions about Angel's past that were solved and answered to perfection. 

But besides that this book is about Angel and Ethan's relationship and their step forward toward a future together. Still Angel's fears played a huge role but with reason. She has experienced a huge loss when she was a child and it still effects her as an adult. It's haunting and scary to witness how deeply traumatized Angel really is. 

Ethan was just the perfect rock and support. 
His alpha and possessiveness was just the right amount and
 I could feel his enduring love for Angel. 
I just loved him and his huge heart. 
Sex also played a very important role in their relationship. 
They loose themselves in each other and every scene felt honest and raw. 
Kendra Leigh sure knows how to write some beautiful yet steamy as hell scenes. 
I could feel their love and angst jump off from the pages.

I'm so happy and delighted that I picked up this Trilogy. 
There's so much more to this story. 
The characters are well developed and so is the story. 
The characters grew with each book and so did my love. 
If this trilogy was Kendra Leigh's first books, 
then I'm very excited for her future releases. 
I'm already waiting.
