My name is Kennedy Brooks and you're not going to like me. Chances are you may even hate me, and that's okay, there are times I do too. I had choices, we all do, the ones that I made changed everything. Before I knew it, the lines of right and wrong began to blur and I was consumed so deeply that I couldn't see a way out even if I wanted to. The path I chose is not for the faint of heart, it isn't always sweet, but it's real. What happens when all the things you have always wanted suddenly aren't all you want anymore? What do you do when the forbidden screams your name and both parts of your life become as vital as the air you breathe? You make a choice. This is my story.




JMAC'S REVIEW
 
 

I seriously am at a loss of words.  I’ve read both Katheryn’s and Cat’s books, and the fact that they never thought to write a dual book before this kind of upsets me.  OMGGGGG…. First let me explain that I am very much aware that this review will not do this book justice.  I can’t even figure out the words to explain how freaking much I loved this book. OMG OMG OMG
 I guess I have to try right? Ok so number one... when I read the title to the book I almost died… I know the writing style of these two fab authors, so I knew I was in for some crazy, hot, dirtiness.  AND OMG did they provide.  We all know im on a cheater kick... I freaking love cheater books; really anything that’s taboo.  I honestly didn’t know what to expect.  I do know that besides Home Wrecker being a cheater book, it was sooooo much more than that.  I wish I could tell you what else it covers, but I don’t want to give anything away. 
I loved every single character in this book.  Kennedy, the main character is great.  She and her husband Gunnar have been in each other’s lives since grade school, along with their best friends Dixon, Lyndsey and mark.  Every character plays a pivotal role in this book and I loved them so much for it.

Dixon is best friends with Gunnar, and Lyndsey and Mark are Kennedys bffs, but they are all close, and consider themselves family. 
I seriously wish I could just tell you all what happens, because this review would make so much more sense, but I can’t.  I can only say that this is seriously my favorite book that these two authors have written, and I hope they write a million more books together.  
I haven’t read many books that were written by 2 authors.  I usually get scared to because sometimes you can see the difference of the writing, but let me tell you Cat and Kathryn executed HomeWrecker perfectly.  I had no idea where one author started, and the other ended.  That’s why I need them to write more. 
HomeWrecker is amazing.  If you don’t mind a book with some taboo in it, grab this now.  I know this review doesn’t explain much, but just trust me you need to read it.  It was amazing, emotional HOT, and just perfect. 
If I could give it 10 stars I would.  I loved it that much.  Do yourself a favor and read this book NOW!!!!

Blurb

When tragedy strikes, Seth Stewart is forced to return home after the death of his beloved father. The unexpected detour forces him to oversee the family’s auto shop and restaurant business, and Seth must kiss the prestigious internship goodbye after his first year at Berkeley Business School. When he collides with his first crush after his arrival, Seth wonders what possibly could have happened to Josefina Anders.

Josefina has hidden many secrets she is too ashamed to share with anyone, especially Seth. When they cross paths again, the urge to relive their past lingers in her mind even though she knows he couldn’t accept her sketchy past. Things get even more complicated when her mother returns, as well as her overly possessive ex, who decides to crash into her fragile existence all over again.

Will Seth’s connection for Josefina be strong enough to see past her secrets, or will he realize he can’t rekindle an old flame?

 
 

Excerpt

 

When she pulled away to look at me, our eyes locked and thousands of emotions rocketed through me. I felt so much, almost too much for my heart to handle…for my body to control. My hands glided up her back, and the soft silky blouse lured me to rip it off her. Lacing through her hair with my hands, I gave in to the temptation I could no longer control and kissed her in madness. Josie kissed me back and her tongue swirled in hunger. I got hard when she rocked back and forth on me. I thought I could come just from this action alone. I wanted so much of Josie, but not here…not now.

Blog Tour & Review ~ Chipped Black Nail Polish by Nicholas Tanek ~ JMAC
















A tribute to a different kind of Jersey girl.
    In New Jersey during the summer of 1989, an awkward thirteen-year-old who was obsessed with weird music fell head-over-heels in love with the coolest post-punk rock girl he had ever met.
    Nicholas was insecure. He was a daydreamer, wishing for romance when he was told, over and over, that he could not have it. He was a toy, pulled and pushed, wanted and used, dragged along yet held at a distance. Nicholas fell in with the out crowd, and loved every minute of it. He fell in love and got left behind, but not before she changed him forever.
    This is an irrational, emotional love story for the teenager inside all of us.
    The music is loud, and you’re about to be pushed into the pit.
What some people are saying…
“I should have put you in therapy.” – my mother
“I insist that you use my real name.” – Kevin
“Finally, a title that doesn’t scare people off. Not like the first book, The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself.” – Kim Gray, publicist




JMAC’S REVIEW
Chipped Black Nail Polish was such an amazing book.  Nicholas Tanek once again proved how brilliant he is with this book.  Chipped Black Nail Polish was the story of 13 year old Nicholas, and his first love, Kim.  I honestly can say Nicholas is my all-time favorite writer.  His books are unlike anything I have ever read. He is brutally honest and his story is just one I never want to stop reading.
As a young boy minding his own business, Kim comes crashing in to Nicholas’ life, and from that moment he was done.  There was no hope for Nicholas when it came to Kim.  He was a boy in love.
Chipped Black Nail Polish is the story of a group of kids who rebel, all while trying to find their place.  Nicholas takes readers on a whole new journey of the summer he was 13.  The story holds no punches, and that’s what I love most about Nicholas’ writing, though it’s very different than what I am used to reading, Nicholas is brutally honest in his stories.  It makes reading his books an extremely personal experience.  I seriously felt like I was sitting down with 13 year old Nicholas, and he was telling me his story. 
If you’ve already read Nicholas’ first book, The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself, then Chipped Black Nail Polish almost gives you a bit of an understanding about Nicholas.  He was exposed to a lot at a young age.  Sex, drugs, alcohol and music were huge points in Nicholas’ life, and Chipped Black Nail Polish gives you the first look at Nick being exposed to all of it.  And if you haven’t read The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself, you are truly missing out. 
Both of Nicholas’ books are amazing.  They are books that everyone should read.  Though I don’t listen to the same music that was referenced, it wasn’t about that.  It was about the culture.  The importance of music in someone’s life.  Just everything about these two books are nothing short of amazing. 
Nicholas, you did it again.  You wrote your feelings on pages for the world to consume, and gosh did I consume it.  You are THE COOLEST!
5 brilliant stars go to Nicholas Tanek’s Chipped Black Nail Polish.!!!
<3 JMAC



 
 


“Never apologize for being weird,” Kim once told me.













Please do not make me hang out with someone who wants to be the next lead singer for Poison.








.foreword by Wendy Buck
   Three months after I read Nicholas’ first book, The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself, my thirteen-year-old daughter, M, told me she was a lesbian. I did not know Nicholas before reading his first book, but he has since become a close friend and confidant. I shared M’s news with him and his response was that I had to write a foreword for his next book. I asked him for the correlation between her announcement and his book, because I didn’t get it. And I fought him on it. What does being gay have in common with being punk rock? He told me to think about the term in a non-music sort of way. What does it represent? And so I did what I always do. I went away and I thought about what he said.
   Chipped Black Nail Polish takes place when I was a teenager, during the height of punk rock. As so many of us did, I promised myself I would never grow up to be one of those adults who forgot where she came from. The music was important, but more than that, what punk rock stood for took center stage for me: the do it- yourself philosophy, questioning the norm, thinking critically, and pushing the boundaries of acceptability. But above all of those things, the most basic characteristic of punk rock is to be true to one’s self.
   But, I broke that promise. I lost sight of myself and became someone I thought I should be in the eyes of my peers. And so, Nicholas and his book came along shortly after I started questioning my decisions and choices in life. Not only have I benefited from his being such a good friend, but so too has my daughter.
   I raise M to be a free thinker and she is very much a free spirit. When I look at her, I am so proud of the young woman she is becoming. She will make her mark. And just like how she came out to the world, she will do it in her own way and in her own time. Do not rush this child, and do not expect her to do it the normal way. She is a weirdo.
   Nicholas has captured only one summer, three months, in this book. These months were pinnacle in defining him as an adult. He, too, was thirteen during the events that took place. I am so grateful that Kim entered his life, for however brief that time was. She taught him to live in acceptance of one’s self, to question everything, to stretch himself outside his perceived comfort zone. She taught him punk rock. She taught him it was okay to be a weirdo.








When I first met Kim, I felt as if I was in the recording session of a beautiful chanteuse who captured my heart. I wanted to collect all her records, including the B-sides and the demos.








Nicholas Tanek is an American ghostwriter from New Brunswick, New Jersey. He graduated from Rutgers University with a bachelor's degree in English. Nicholas Tanek grew up as a New Jersey punk rock skater kid who lost himself in the early 90’s New York City rave scene. After years of drug addiction, he got his life together when he was reunited with Lynn, the love of his life, before she died at the age of 37. Instead of choosing negativity, he chose creativity. Losing Lynn inspired him to write his first book, The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself. There is quite a bit of kinky sex, drugs, and music in the life of Nicholas Tanek and he has some unique stories to tell.

He's going above and beyond the call of duty...

Avery Yeung's biological clock just went off early. Thanks to her family's medical history, she's running out of time to get knocked up. And the only guy within donating distance? Her overprotective-and irritatingly hot-best friend. So clearly she needs an anonymous donor...

Anonymous donor? Over Sheriff Drew Flannery's dead body. While daddyhood will never be in the cards for a man with his past, Drew won't let Avery shop for a "popsicle pop." He'll do what's right for his best friend by doing his best friend. But only if they do it properly.

But there's nothing "proper" about it. Between the bed, the kitchen counter, and against his squad car, Avery and Drew are having the hottest sex ever. They can't get enough of it-or each other. And without knowing it, they've crossed the one line that could ruin their friendship forever...

 
 
 
 
 
*JMAC’S REVIEW* 
 
 

I love a good best friends to lovers’ book, and Falling for His Best Friend was the perfect one!

Falling for His Best Friend follows two longtime friends, Avery and Drew, on their journey to finding and keeping love.  This book has a mixture of humor, sexiness, sadness and love.  It was a quick and extremely enjoyable read.  I literally finished the whole book in one sitting.

Avery might be my favorite female character.  She was freaking hilarious.  I loved her badass personality.  I mean who doesn’t love a female lead who isn’t afraid to speak her mind whenever she wants.  Avery held nothing back, and I adored her for that.  Avery is someone I would DEF become BFF’s with in real life. 

Then we have Drew.  *swoon* Drew is a whole other story.  He’s all types of sexy, and oh he’s an officer.  Sexiness wrapped up in a uniform should be illegal.  The best part of Drew, besides his awesome personality, is when his alpha side comes out.  Lord it’s amazing!

When something forces Avery to make a huge decision, Drew tries to do whatever he can to be a part of this huge upcoming life change. 

Falling for His Best Friend is the story of crossing the lines between lovers and friends.  Sometimes fate works in funny ways.  Someone you only thought of as a friend, could very well be your soul mate.  It’s up to you to embrace it rather than denying or trying to come between it. 

I recommend this book to everyone (over 18 of course).  It was such a good book.  Just enjoyable.  It wasn’t a perplexed plot, it was just a light nice read.  Sometimes I just want to enjoy a book without having to think about the next step.  Falling for His Best Friend was that type of book.  No thinking involved.  I loved that about it.

Katee, you did a fabulous job with this story, though it’s the first book of yours I’ve read, I know it won’t be my last!

Excerpt 
 
 
He jumped, and then climbed to his feet when Avery did, and followed her to the plump older nurse. She smiled at them, making him wonder if she were someone’s grandmother—the kind who made cookies and read bedtime stories and…
 What the hell was he even thinking?
As soon as they turned the corner from the waiting room, she handed him a small clear cup that had a sticker with his information on it. “You’ll put the specimen in here, please.”
The nurse opened a door. “You can leave the cup in the room when you’re done.” She smiled at Avery. “You’re welcome to go into the room with him, but we ask that you ensure there’s no saliva or other fluids involved so you don’t contaminate the specimen.”
Avery made a choked noise. “That’s so not going to be a problem.”
The nurse laughed and patted her shoulder. “I’ve heard that one before, honey. I’ll just leave you to it.”
He barely waited for her to disappear back around the corner before he turned to examine the room. It looked like an entire frat house’s stash of porn had exploded in there. “Isn’t this a little much for a few tests?”
She looked at him like he was an idiot. “How else are you going to get your engine running?
Besides, this isn’t about tests—though I’m sure they’ll run a few. You wanted to help me make a baby, so let’s make a baby. Now go get ‘em, Champ.”
 Jesus Christ. She expected him to leave a specimen so the doctor could shoot it up her…
Apparently when they’d talked about making a baby, something had gotten lost in translation.
 “You’re shitting me.”
 “Nope.” She slid past him into the room and meandered around, stopping in front of the television and eyeing the collection of DVDs on the shelf next to it. “Oh, look, they have Busty Blondes #37. I seem to remember you having one of these videos back in high school.”
He grabbed her shoulders and tried to steer her away from the shelf. “Not interested.”
Truth was, his inspiration for self sessions had migrated toward pretty Asian women who looked a whole lot like the one standing in the room with him.
“If you’re not into the DVDs, they have magazines, too.” She poked one with her finger. “Though this one appears a bit crusty.”
“Christ, stop touching things. Do you know what men do in here?”
She rolled her eyes. “Yeah, Drew, that’s kind of the point. They come in here, watch or read whatever tickles their fancy, and then masturbate into that sanitary little cup right there.”
When she said ‘masturbate’ he thought his head might actually explode. “Avery—”
“Are you worried about hitting your mark? That is kind of a small cup. Want me to go find something bigger?”
God, she was killing him. It would have been so much more bearable if he thought she was kidding, but Avery was drop dead serious. It was a sign of her nervousness that she hadn’t cracked a joke since he got into her Jeep.
 He couldn’t do it.
 
 
 
 
 
 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Katee Robert

 
 
 
New York Times & USA TODAY Bestselling Author
 
Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.
 
Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way—as it often does—and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.
 
Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?
 
She now spends her time—when not lost in Far Reach worlds—playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
