Recklessly Ever After Synopsis:

Gavin St. James

After the hell I’ve been through in the Marines―in life―there’s nothing I crave more than routine, stability, peace. Until McKenna Brewer walks into my life.

She’s impulsive, fiery, tempting as hell, and everything I don’t need. But when she offers me a night of no-strings-attached passion, I can’t resist.

When our night together has unexpected consequences, I can’t help but think this might be the perfect opportunity to show McKenna just how much I want her.

The only problem? She doesn’t do forevers. But forever is exactly what I need with her.

Excerpt Reveal-

With a couple of nineties rom-coms tucked inside my purse, and a fresh carton of Ben & Jerry’s in a bag hanging off my forearm, buried in the bottom of my purse, I was determined to make up for lost time.

I knocked twice, like always. Once to make my presence known, and the next to make sure Max wasn’t in there screwing one of his many flavors—though I didn’t see his car either. Unlike every other time I’d stopped by, nobody answered…at least at first. But then I heard it—a grunt, followed by a, fuck me and then an, I’m coming, hold on.

“Oh, God.” I took a step back, looking over my shoulder toward the driveway, more than ready to run.

No, no, no. I knew that voice.

There was no time to escape, though, because a second later he was there. And quite frankly, my legs weren’t capable of moving, either. Because the moment that door whipped open and I saw him standing there, I was screwed with a capital S.

“McKenna…” He said my name on an exhale, while his hypnotic green eyes raked over me in one long, agonizing swoop. His cheeks grew bright red—making him look bashful and, adorable, not the tough- guy like his friends tried to be. When he bowed his head, I took a second to look him over too, frowning when I noted a clump of black sticky, gooey stuff clinging to the ends of his lashes, and a smearing of something shiny and red on the corners of his lips and clinging to his beard.

“H-hi.” I cleared my throat, attempting to remember why I was there in the first place. His The intensity emitting from this man tended to make me forget pretty much everything.

“What are you doing here?” He folded his arms over his massive chest. The same chest I’d touched… The same chest I’d kissed…

I blinked. “W-where’s Addie?”

He frowned and that beard of his shifted, conforming with the movements of his jaw. “Grocery store. She asked me to watch Chloe for half an hour.”

“You? Watch Chloe?” I snorted.

“Yeah. Me.” His eyebrows drew together as he propped one hand against the door frame, a dare in his words that said, challenge Challenge me, and you will lose.

Except I highly doubted this man could ever beat me in a match of wits. Regardless, he did havehad me mesmerized, like as always. His hotness, his coyness, the vulnerability I knew he embodied… Total. Human. Catnip.

I swallowed, watching his forearm flex. Gavin was humongous in every sense of the word. I may might have been a little tipsy when we’d had sex, but the delicious soreness between my legs the next morning proved that big was so very worth it.

My face grew hot at the memory, my mouth opening and closing like a dunce’s. Who was I? Where was I? And why the hell did I have an unexplainable urge to drop to my knees before him?

Because you like him.

I frowned and held my chin up high. “Mind if I come in and make sure you didn’t tie the tyke up?” Without waiting for a response, I ducked under his outstretched arm, holding my breath as I did. Unfortunately, the air in my lungs did little to block the heavenly, masculine smell he emitted. Spice, pine, soap… The combination made my lady parts tingle and my head spin in remembrance.

I didn’t do men for more than a night. Not anymore. Not since Penis-head Head Paul. So, what was my issue? One and done, that’s the way it was supposed to be. Not third time’s a charm, damn it.

Ignoring his are-you-kidding-me- expression, I headed into the living room, finding the coffee table filled with all things princess. Crowns, feather boas, fake earrings, and… “Is that makeup?”

He cleared his throat. “Yeah, um, give me a second, would ya?”

I grinned at him, watching, yet again, as he bowed his head—this time rubbing at the clingy black goo on his eyes and, yes, the red lipstick on his beard.

Oh. My. God.

He’d let the kid put it on him?

Be still, my beating heart.

My thoughts on The Enigma Stolen by Charles V Breakfield, Roxanne E Burkey Narrator: Derek Shoales. Buying information below:

5 out of 5 stakes!!

Wow this series gets better and better with every book I feel. Stakes are high in this one. More people are using the technology to hire assassin’s to go after high profile people. When old foes and new friends come together to stop the computers from taking over you stay on edge. The R group is great as always. We get more character background in this one. A little bit of everyone’s. Although not as much as I would like. But still we understand some of the characters. When politics and technology come together it’s scary. It’s almost as if the authors knew something we didn’t back then. Can we stop technology from thinking and taking over for themselves? I think we really see how hackers are truly taking over little things. Not just them but as people are so use to our computers and phones we forget to really take in everything. This series proves that.

Series: The Enigma Series, Book 5

Release date: Jun. 12, 2018

Synopsis: What is the result of combining unlimited computing power, a zealous desire to manipulate all but the elite humans, and a morally crippled mathematical genius? Unfettered anarchy! Can the ever-growing torrent of information, analyzed by sophisticated computer systems, neutralize freedoms of choice, then steer us into a predetermined destination?

Unidentified power mongers are plotting massive destabilization of the stock market, with the end game to not only optimize their wealth, but to also control the future. No need to cut a nervous investor off in traffic to initiate a stock market crash. All you need is unlimited computer power and the ethical nihilism to manipulate lives.

The R-Group, a high-level information gathering and security team, believes at least one group – possibly several – are using Big Data analysis to customize the future to their image. Jacob, Petra, EZ, Quip, and the rest of the R-Group battle along with Julie and Juan’s fledgling group of Cyber Assassin Technology Services teams to locate the source of the massive computing power required. Could these cyber schemers be as good at analyzing the information as the R-Group themselves?

Unless the R-Group can neutralize this unrelenting threat, humanity’s future will be determined by a select few. Are people unwittingly feeding an ever-growing tsunami of information into increasingly sophisticated computer systems? This begs the question: who controls whom?

Award-winning authors Breakfield and Burkey bring the fifth book in The Enigma Series, The Enigma Stolen, into the relevant world of Big Data and analytics. Can all the information available provide a reliable method of predicting the future? Who are the winners when humans are herded to a machine’s targeted end point?

Hello everyone,

I figured I would do something a little bit different.

How many of you are trying to get a book published?? My thoughts and questions are:

I would love to self publish my books. Problem is the editing process. For me I can write out a book and bam it’s done. Well not really takes a little longer then bam. Ha ha.

But you get my point. I can write it, but the whole editing process stops me dead.

Because I know I have run on sentences, I know I have paragraphs sometimes not right.

But I’m asking what does everyone else do?

With little or no money, how do you edit? Or what apps can you use to maybe help out?

Well that is enough with my rambling for tonight.

My thoughts on The Enigma Wraith by Charles V Breakfield, Roxanne E Burkey

5 out of 5 stakes!!!

By far I think this one has to be my favorite one so far out of the series. I mean hacking a car driverless car. And not to mention more of Jacob in this one. I really like his character. I got nervous because this one seemed the hardest for the tram to track down and take down. Although nothing is truly taken down I believe because somehow someway they are all connected. Again as always looking forward to the next book in the series.

Publisher: Enigma Series LLC⎮2018

Genre: Science Fiction; Technothriller

Series: The Enigma Series, Book 4

Release date: Mar. 19, 2018

Synopsis: The Enigma Wraith, the fourth book in the Enigma series, serves up yet another captivating techno-thriller racing with romance, humor, and possible catastrophe. When an Irish financial institution, a Brazilian hydroelectric plant, a NATO base, and a smart car traveling through the European countryside are each hacked by the same sinister force, the world is introduced to the first glimpse of the potential damage that the Ghost Code can inflict – on both a personal and an industrial level.

Created by a mysterious pair of cyber pirates known only as Mephisto and Callisto, this destructive code is nearly impossible to find and even harder to remove. And while their agenda appears to be a blackmail plot for financial gain, their true aims could be of a far more menacing and expansive nature.

In an intriguing game of digital cat and mouse, the R-Group’s Jacob, Petra, and Quip find themselves pitted against their most nefarious enemies to date. Stretching their considerable talents to the max, they struggle to track down the source of the problem and craft a solution that can secure the world’s technology infrastructure before it completely collapses.

What do we risk in our appetite for technology with no guardrails in place?

Thoughts on The Enigma Ignite:

4 out of 5 stakes!

Wow this book is awesome. To merge technology with different life things. Hackers aren’t looking to just hack businesses. We have soldiers and such. The R group is called in to help out with this case with a professor. Can Jacob and the team get to the bottom of this case and help others? This book ups the hacker game.

About Audiobook #3

Author: Charles V Breakfield, Roxanne E Burkey

Narrator: Derek Shoales

Length: 10 hours 27 minutes

Publisher: Enigma Series LLC⎮2017

Genre: Science Fiction; Technothriller

Series: The Enigma Series, Book 3

Release date: Dec. 18, 2017

Synopsis: As the world’s biggest powers compete for superiority, it’s not larger weapons or greater numbers of soldiers that top their wish lists. Instead, it’s the latest and greatest technological advances: nanotechnology, dynamic programming algorithms, and drones, working together to build the next generation of military communications.

When a professor at a Texas university begins researching ways to improve animal husbandry and boost global food supplies, her results catch the eye of inquisitive engineer Keith Austin Avery, whose interests have nothing to do with solving world hunger.

But as Avery works on potential new uses for this technology, his research draws the attention of a powerful terrorist group, with traumatic results for him and his subcontractor Eilla-Zan Marshall.

Now it’s up to the members of the R-Group to find the terrorists and their captives, using all the data and analytics at their disposal to leverage each and every piece of information.

The fast-paced third installment of the Enigma Series has R-Group’s Jacob working closely with a powerful and talented team, with results that incorporate a satisfying balance of technology, surprisingly sensitive romance, and the blurred lines that surround the age-old conflict between good and evil.

My thoughts on The Enigma Rising👇

4 out if 5 stakes!

This book is really good. Although I missed the main characters from book 1 this book had more suspense. And what better way to start off with them trying to find a missing girl. Did she runaway or kidnapped? With Otto’s help can him and his team find the female and stop any attacks in the area and world? I love how this is based on hackers but yet action outside of the technology world as well. Who is covering for who? Who is playing both sides. I often wondered how the R team get themselves into some of this that I was like OMG damn. Already on book 3 and I’m sure it’s going to get even better. Look out for my next review on book 3 coming soon.

Author: Charles V Breakfield, Roxanne E Burkey

Narrator: Derek Shoales

Length: 10 hours 19 minutes

Publisher: Enigma Series LLC⎮2017

Genre: Science Fiction; Technothriller

Series: The Enigma Series, Book 2

Release date: Sep. 13, 2017

Synopsis: When a Brazilian industrialist hires the R-Group, the world’s most elite information-gathering unit to track the disappearance of his daughter – a dangerous – but quiet hunt begins. But just finding her doesn’t mean all will be well. The team in Switzerland follows the leads from South America to Mexico and the Caribbean, but the data trail is leading nowhere. Sometimes the most important clues come from unlikely sources.

By chance, two members of the elite team vacationing in Mexico cross paths with Carlos and Juan’s fly-by-night operation. Cloaking their “moving business” from satellite surveillance, their unique talent for relocating drug lords targeted by the Mexican authorities, along with their cash, gold, artwork and other assets, was legendary. These are Bad Boys, so-called entrepreneurs, whom even the most generous observer would question the legality of their business model.

Can the R-Group assemble the pieces of the puzzle without international consequences? Will the brothers stop running outside the law long enough to do the right thing? Can you hide from your past and still enjoy the present? Is the heiress hiding in plain sight or gone forever? And can the brothers rein in their contempt for societal rules and leave behind the sweet deals long enough to save a life?

The Enigma Rising continues the award-winning Breakfield and Burkey’s series, overcoming opportunistic cyber-crime in the high-stakes world of information brokering in the 21st century. With its strong cast of characters, this engaging techno-thriller of lost-and-found – and lost again – will take you on an incredible journey into the dark side of technology.

My thoughts on The Enigma Factor by Charles V. Breakfield & Roxanne E. Burkey Narrated by Stephen Jay Cohen

5 out of 5 stakes!

First I have to say I love the whole concept of this book and series. The whole dark hat and white hat hacker stuff is just right up with what I love.
I couldn’t have asked for a better book to everything in it.

And everything is going great in his life. But when his mother dies by a hit and run. Everything changes for Jacob, things he thought he knew no longer apply. Thinking he has no family besides his mother. But when with his job his does codes and helps stops hackers from breaching companies. Jacob also helps to code things for companies and when his friend Buzz uses his code and adds something to it. That’s when some things change.
He mysteriously gets an invite to go to Vegas and learn more tech stuff, he learns and meets more then he could have asked for.
His life as he knows it becomes erased and people he thought he knew are not the same. All working for a higher company to stop attacks. Goes so much further then the US.. China and Russia. Don’t want to give away anything else. Just read the book or listen to it.
