RISING FROM THE ASHES
Book Title: Rising from the Ashes 
Author: Jessica Prince 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: February 25, 2014 

Synopsis
People make mistakes when they're young, but how they choose to come back from those mistakes is what matters in the end.

Savannah Morgan found true love at a very early age, but one rash decision — one that she would regret for the rest of her life — was all it took to end her relationship with the love of her life.

For seven years, Jeremy Matthews has accepted being ""just friends"" with the only woman he's ever loved. Finally deciding that enough is enough, Jeremy relentlessly pursues Savannah until he forces her to see just how right they are for each other.

When Savannah's past mistake is revealed, threatening the future she so desperately wants, the fate of their relationship lies in Jeremy’s hands. Will he be able to forgive Savannah, or is the relationship truly over?

When struggles and obstacles threaten the foundation of Savannah and Jeremy's relationship, will they choose to let each other go, or rise from the ashes of the past to claim their happiness?

  excerpt
I looked back out my window at Jeremy, taking in the broad chest, ripped abs, and muscular arms pushing the mower around my front lawn. Sweat was running down his sexy-as-sin torso, pulling my eyes to the worn out jeans that were resting low on his hips. The white T-shirt he’d shown up in earlier had been discarded and was hanging out the waistband of the back of his pants. He was a walking advertisement for sex, and even my neighbors couldn’t help but come outside to appreciate him.
I let out a sexually repressed sigh and went back to my conversation with Lizzy. “He’s bulked up a bit over the years, but yeah, for the most part, he’s always been pretty cut.”
She was silent for several seconds. “No offense, babe, but how in the ever-living hell did you give up having sex with that for the past seven years?”
I leaned my head against the glass and squeezed my eyes shut. “With an iron will.”
She started laughing on the other end of the phone. “How’s that working out for ya right now?”
“Well, considering I’m two seconds from knocking his ass out just so I can take advantage of him, I’d say not so good.”
Do you need more, or will these work, or do you need a few more?
My Review: 5 stars
This was such a good book to read. Even if my heart was in my throat for half of it. I had the pleasure of reading the first book in the series prior to this, and I will say that in my opinion, it did make a difference. This book does reference what happened, but it minimizes the effects. I loved Savannah and Jeremy, Emmy and Luke, Trevor and Lizzie, Gavin and Stacia; without them all this would have been very different. Gavin and Stacia are the solid couple who have remained together through everything. Emmy and Luke have just gotten back together after being apart for 7 years due to Luke's stubbornness. Savannah and Jeremy are meant to be together, but Savannah is holding a secret that she knows will destroy their relationship once Jeremy finds out. That doesn't mean that she doesn't love Jeremy, because she really does. He is it for her. Jeremy loves Savannah. But since they've been broken up for the past several years, he's trying to get over her, and failing miserably. Even though Savannah and Jeremy aren't together, they are still best friends. Jeremy sets out to make Savannah his again, and she finally confesses her secret - and she's right, that secret costs her not just Jeremy, but her other best friend, Emmy as well. 

I get that they're hurt and angry. But Emmy and Jeremy are looking at the situation that happened from where they are now, not where they were at the time. Savannah made some very hard choices, and has had to live with those choices alone, and give up the love of her life because of those choices. She thought she knew what the fallout would be like, but it was so much more than she expected. She was left alone to deal with everything. I can't blame her for what happened. In my mind, Luke being the one who pointed out what Emmy and Jeremy had left Savannah to deal with was very insightful - and he was right. Now they just have to find out if they're too late.

I loved reading this series so far, and I can't wait to see if there are going to be more. I completely think there should be. The characters were so likeable, it broke my heart to see them deal with the difficulties of life feeling abandoned or alone. I read from the first page to the last without stopping, because I had to know what happened. I loved the ending, and I really can't wait to see where it goes from here. Jessica did a fantastic job writing this and keeping me blued to the pages until the end.

Prologue
There was a time in my life when the light within me shined so brightly. At some point I lost it. I lost me. Life used to course through my veins like an out of control wildfire, unstoppable and infectious. Time was supposed to heal, but all it did was slowly strip me down to an empty vessel void of passion, desire, and drive. I wanted to scream, “Be the one to save me,” but my soul was drained, my heart was shattered, and time had siphoned the life out of me.

Eve could never have imagined that her trip to Australia, where she is set to be maid of honor for her best friend's wedding, could turn from exciting to deadly so quickly.

Her sheltered and boring vanilla life comes to a screeching halt when she arrives in Australia and witnesses a shocking MC murder which puts her life in extreme danger. The Carnal MC are a dangerous and savage motorcycle gang who want Eve and will stop at nothing to seek their revenge.

Just when it seems her nightmare fate is sealed, Eve is rescued by the Severed MC and quickly falls for the club's Vice President Gabe aka "Angel". This could be just the diversion she needs. With her new protectors, Eve faces a whole new life she never could have imagined...

Gabe never wanted an old lady. One look at the beautiful Eve cowering at the hands of the enemy changes all that. Starting a war with the Carnal MC and having Eve in his bed is just the beginning.

When Gabe stakes his claim, he goes all in. War with Carnal MC is just the price of making Eve his, and only his. But love invites blood and tragedy in an MC's life.

Just when it's looking up for his MC and his new woman, a savage attack blows the lid off everything. Revenge possessed and determined can the hot tattooed biker save her from the danger that lies ahead?

I slowly walk in the direction of the noise. I have no idea why, snooping didn't exactly do me any favors the last time. There are a few more doors down here, one door is slightly open and I can tell it's a pool room. There are three pool tables spread around and I find the reason behind the noise.

I've only ever been with one man at a time, in fact I've only ever been with douche-bag, but this girl has three.

My brain races with the possibilities of what three men could do to my body.  After reading so many erotica books I’ve certainly fantasized about the things I’ve read, but it’s nothing compared to actually seeing it happen right in front of you.  Where I’m standing is dark, so even if they look up… they won’t be able to see me.  At least I hope not!

The woman is naked, legs spread wide and laying on her back on the table.  One man has his head buried between her thighs, another thrusting his cock deep in her mouth at the edge of the table, and the third is licking her nipples from the other side.

The sight is highly erotic and I'm immediately turned on. My eyes widen when they stop, flipping the girl over, dragging her down the table so one of the men can sit at its edge with her straddling his lap. The others take their positions, one behind her, the other standing above them all, giving the girl perfect access to his hard cock. Her moan fills the room as the three enter her, bumping and thrusting. I fight my own hands, biting on my lip. I am so turned on right now, I don't know what to do with myself. I think about running back to my room and taking care of myself, but I can't turn my eyes away from the scene acting out in front of me.

I catch movement to my side, shocked to see Angel glaring at me. "Like what you see?"

I stare wide eyed, I don't know what to say. I'm embarrassed he's caught me watching. He curses, looking back to the foursome.  The girl’s moaning becomes louder and I step back. I'm still turned on, my underwear is soaked, even though I'm ashamed at being caught watching. Angel looks at me, snickering before storming into the room. What the fuck is he doing?
