Release Pricing: Carolina Days Complete Series just 99 cents!!!!!

Carolina Days Series by Carey Heywood- all 3 Kindle books just 99 cents!

I have been a big fan of Carey Heywood's for a while now. I listed Him on my Top Book Favorites list last year and I absolutely love the Carolina Days series so I am so excited to spread the word that all three books are available for just 99 cents! This is a steal and I'm not sure how long this price will be around, so I'd hurry if I were you!

Book descriptions from Amazon:

~ The Other Side of Someday ~ 

Falling in love? Courtney Grayson has been there, done that. 
Men, who needs them? Love wasn’t everything she thought it would be. This time around, she’s doing things differently. She hasn’t sworn off men for good; she just isn’t interested in settling. Trusting someone with her heart again? Someday, but not today. 
Falling in love? Sorry, Clay Bradshaw is not the guy for you. 
He’s never been in love and he doesn’t see it happening. Hooking up can be fun, but more often than not, women are a distraction he doesn’t need. He’s a busy man, and doesn’t have time to date, let alone fall in love. Will someone ever change that? There’s always a chance, someday. 
Life doesn’t always go as planned, and love may find them both on the other side of someday.

~ Yesterday's Half Truths ~ 

She never thought it would go this far. 
It started out so innocently, but now has taken on a life of its own. Problem is, Lindsay Palmer doesn't know how to stop. Even worse, she doesn't want to stop. Her daily deceit has become both her greatest pleasure and deepest shame. Thousands of people love her, but would they if they knew the truth. 
A simple favor for his baby sister brings Lindsay into Luke Jamieson's life. There's something about this girl that keeps her on his mind hours and days after each time they meet. Now here he is, falling in love with a liar. All he wants is for her to let him in, and maybe together he can lead her out of the cage of her own construction. 
Will the truth set her free, or have her lies already destroyed everything? 

~ Chasing Daylight ~ 

Mitch Brooks exists day to day by keeping the world around him at arm’s length. There is no going back to the man he once was. That man is broken in a way there’s no fixing. Any hope beyond that is nothing but wishful thinking, until he meets her. 
McKenzie Williams needed an escape. The last thing she needed was a scary beautiful man beating down her door in the middle of the night. Now, if only their paths would stop crossing, she can convince herself she doesn’t feel a connection to him. Life has shown her the dreams she once held dear will never come true for her. 
Mitch struggles to get past the walls he’s built around himself, while McKenzie works to build hers brick by brick. When the outside world exposes the vulnerabilities in his façade, she abandons her own fears to stand by him. Will she be the one to save him from the darkness within him? Or will he forever be chasing daylight?

Recommendation: Sidebarred

Sidebarred by Emma Chase

From Amazon.com: 

Join Jake & Chelsea, Stanton & Sofia, Brent & Kennedy as they navigate the hilarious and heartwarming hurdles of love, life and the law in this final addition to the Legal Briefs Series.

There was a time when Jake Becker had it all together. He was controlled, driven, ruthless—in and out of the courtroom.
Then, six irresistible orphans and their heartbreakingly beautiful aunt crashed into his perfectly ordered life. They changed everything. They changed him. Now he’s a husband, an upstanding member of society, a father figure—a family man.
And he’s pretty damn good at it.
Sure, he has to referee sibling smackdowns, re-learn algebra, ensure his clients stay of jail, and keep his wife happy—but it finally feels like he’s got it together again....
So, of course something has to screw it all up. It’s huge. Life-changing. Kind of terrifying.
And it will be the most amazing, perfect thing he’ll ever do.


Sign. Jake Becker..... Although I was super sad to see the end of the Legal Briefs series, I was so glad the final addition was centered on Jake, my most favorite of the swoon-worthy attorneys. The audiobook is narrated by the God of men's voices, Sebastian York, and goodness, his voice is nothing short of AMAZING. This is a short novella at just 132 pages, and the audiobook is about 2 1/2 hours. It's such a great wrap up, and even features an epilogue taking place 17 years later. If you're read the first three books in the series, this is a must!

Recommendation: Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell

Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell

Rainbow Rowell is an instant one-click author for me, so when I saw she had released a short story in the UK for World Book Day, I knew I needed to find a copy. I found mine on ebay, but there are some copies available on Amazon for around $6.

Kindred Spirits is the story of Elena, who is quite the Star Wars fangirl. She has BIG plans to join what she imagines to be a HUGE line for the movie 4 days before the release, and is surprised to find only 2 others with the same dedication as hers.

Note that the actual story is just 62 pages, but of course Rowell packs so much in there! With her trademark quirky characters and witty dialog, it's just plain charming and absolutely worth a read!

Book Recommendation: Center Ring by Nicole Waggoner

Center Ring by Nicole Waggoner

Blurb from Amazon.com:
Norah Merrit, a dedicated obstetrician known for her bedside manner and service to Doctors Without Borders, walks into girls’ night out with a confession to make―and what she has to say shakes the group to its core. In the aftermath of Norah’s revelation, each of the women she calls her sister-friends―photojournalist Camille, stay-at-home mom Leila, publicist Ellison, and designer Kate―are left questioning the roads they haven’t taken, and revisiting the vastly different choices they’ve made in life and love. 

Told in alternating points of view between the five friends, Center Ring is a story about modern women finding balance through action, relationships, and growth in the midst of challenges and change.


Local friend Nicole Waggoner recently released her first novel, and I cannot say enough good things about it! I absolutely flew through it, devouring the stories of the five friends. While I was reading, I was thinking of the women in my life and which character they reminded me of. I think we can all find someone to relate to in this book. This is the first book in a trilogy, and I cannot wait for the others to be released- Nicole's books will be an instant one-click for me!

Monday is Release Day for Smut by Karina Halle

Monday, May 16 is release day for Karina Halle's Smut! I am looking forward to reading this!

  Smut AMAZON - Copy

What happens when the kink between the pages leads to heat between the sheets?

All Blake Crawford wants is to pass his creative writing course, get his university degree and take over his dad’s ailing family business. What Amanda Newland wants is to graduate at the top of her class, as well as finally finish her novel and prove to her family that writing is a respectful career.

What Blake and Amanda don’t want is to be paired up with each other for their final project but that’s exactly what they both get when they’re forced to collaborate on a writing piece. Since Amanda thinks Blake is a pushy asshole (with a panty-melting smirk and British accent) and Blake thinks Amanda has a stick up her ass (though it’s brilliant ass), they fight tooth and nail until they discover they write well together. They also might find each other really attractive, but that’s neither here nor there.

When their writing project turns out to be a success, the two of them decide to start up a secret partnership together using a pen name, infiltrating the self-publishing market in the lucrative genre of erotica. Naturally, with so much heat and passion between the pages, it’s not long before their dirty words become a dirty reality. Sure, they still fight a lot but at least there’s make-up sex now.

But even as they start to fall hard for each other, will their burgeoning relationship survive if their scandalous secret is exposed or are happily-ever-afters just a work of fiction?

Currently reading: The Long Ride Home: The Extraordinary Journey of Healing that Changed a Child's Life by Rupert Issacson

THE LONG RIDE HOME:
The Extraordinary Journey of Healing that Changed a Child’s Life
By Rupert Isaacson

I am currently reading The Long Ride Home, and it is fascinating! As a parent who has tried some out-of-the-box therapies for my kids like listening therapy, interactive metronome, and Irlen filter glasses, I understand so much how exciting it can be to get results from something non-traditional. The effect horse riding had on Rowan is nothing short of amazing!

Press release info:
Would you go to the ends of the earth to help your child?

Writer Rupert Isaacson and his wife, Kristin, traveled to Mongolia, Southern Africa and Australia to seek solutions for their autistic son, Rowan. The Isaacsons’ amazing quest to help—and ultimately heal—Rowan, is captured in THE LONG RIDE HOME: The Extraordinary Journey of Healing that Changed a Child’s Life (Horse Boy Press; March 2016). Part thrilling adventure and part lyrical memoir, the book is a love letter from a father to a child whose gifts were waiting to be unlocked.


It began with a horse. One day Rowan slipped away from his father and ran up to Betsy, a gentle mare who lived next door to their Texas home. Rowan’s instant rapport with Betsy, and the amazing effect she had on his behavior, inspired Isaacson to ride with his son. Isaacson, a trained rider, thought he had given up horses when his son was diagnosed with autism.

As Rowan learned to read and communicate astride Betsy with his father, Isaacson felt an unexplainable tug of intuition. If he could take Rowan someplace that combined horses and spirituality, he could help him begin to heal. And what better place than the ancestral home of the horse, where shamans still practiced their craft—Mongolia.

That’s when the adventure began. Going on faith and a hunch, the Isaacsons committed themselves to taking their intermittently incontinent, tantrum-prone son around the world. They travelled miles across the Mongolian steppes on horseback to meet a shaman whose odd methods brought amazing results. But the Isaacsons were warned: they would need three more healing journeys before any improvement became permanent.

Pilgrimages to Southern Africa to meet the Kalahari Bushmen, as well as shamans of Australia’s coastal rainforest and the Navajo reservations of the American Southwest followed. Along the way the Isaacsons discovered how nature, movement and animals can help release children living on the Autism Spectrum from their most debilitating symptoms.

THE LONG RIDE HOME combines Isaacson’s talents as an observer with a gift for breathtaking detail with the insight of his psychologist wife to create a portrait of hope that has resulted in The Movement Method, practiced around the world. It’s a story of love and the perseverance to find the child locked within the shell of autism and help him reach his full potential, a potential that may be a gift to the neurotypical world.  

RUPERT ISAACSON was born in London to Southern African parents. He is the author of The Healing Land, the story of his time with the San Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert and the adventure of helping them regain their ancestral hunting grounds; The Wild Host: The History and the Meaning of the Hunt, and The Horse Boy, the story of his quest on horseback across Mongolia to find help for his autistic son, which has been translated into 30 languages. Isaacson’s feature documentary, The Horse Boy, was screened on television worldwide and in American cinemas and his journalistic work has appeared in national newspapers in the United States and United Kingdom. A human rights activist for the Kalahari Bushmen, he also founded and runs The Horse Boy Foundation, which specializes in helping children learn and communicate through horses (The Horse Boy Method) and play equipment and the environment (Horse Boy Learning).

Cover Reveal- True North Series by Sarina Bowen

Sarina Bowen is a one-click author for me, and I am so excited to help reveal the cover for Bittersweet, the first novel in The True North Series! These covers are GORGEOUS and I can't read to get started on this series!

BITTERSWEET (TRUE NORTH #1)


If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the orchard.

The last person Griffin Shipley expects to find stuck in a ditch on his Vermont country road is his ex-hookup. Five years ago they’d shared a couple of steamy nights together. But that was a lifetime ago. 

At twenty-seven, Griff is now the accidental patriarch of his family farm. Even his enormous shoulders feel the strain of supporting his mother, three siblings and a dotty grandfather. He doesn’t have time for the sorority girl who’s shown up expecting to buy his harvest at half price.

Vermont was never in Audrey Kidder’s travel plans. Neither was Griff Shipley. But she needs a second chance with the restaurant conglomerate employing her. Okay—a fifth chance. And no self-righteous lumbersexual farmer will stand in her way.

They’re adversaries. They want entirely different things from life. Too bad their sexual chemistry is as hot as Audrey’s top secret enchilada sauce, and then some.

Bittersweet is available for pre-order on iBooks, and scheduled to release on June 14, 2016.


Sarina also released the covers for the other two books in the series, Keepsake and Steadfast.


STEADFAST (TRUE NORTH #2)

Jude lost everything one spring day when he crashed his car into an apple tree on the side of the road. A man is dead, and there's no way he can ever right that wrong.
For Sophie Haines, Jude's sudden return to Colebury, Vermont, is an unwelcome distraction. It's not acceptable to still crave the man who killed your brother.
And it's a small town...

KEEPSAKE (TRUE NORTH #3)

Zach's book.

Book Review: Spy Girl by Jillian Dodd

Spy Girl by Jillian Dodd

What happens when you get pulled out of spy academy before graduation because you look good in a bikini? 

Your mission, should you choose to accept it: 
Protect the heir to the throne of Montrovia, while uncovering the person or persons behind the plot to assassinate him in order to take over control of this geographically important sovereign nation, and eliminate the threat. 

Get close to the hottest prince on the planet and work for Black X, the double-black covert group so secret even the President of the United States is on a need-to-know basis? 
I accept.

As soon as I saw the promo info for Spy Girl, I knew it was an immediate one-click for me! Dodd's That Boy series and her Keatyn Chronicles books were such favorites, I knew I would love this too. I am a big fan of the TV series Alias, and the blurb made me think of Sydney Bristow so I couldn't wait to read it.

It did not disappoint! I devoured it in a day and absolutely couldn't put it down. It was sexy, humorous, full of charming men, and just plain fun to read! Huntley is such a badass spy. Although it can be read as a standalone, there's an epilogue at the end that leaves some unanswered questions, and it's been announced that the second book in the The Spy Girl Series will be titled The Assassin.  Can't wait to read it!

Book Review: Withering Hope by Layla Hagen


by Layla Hagen

From Amazon.com: Aimee’s wedding is supposed to turn out perfect. Her dress, her fiancé and the location—the idyllic holiday ranch in Brazil—are perfect. 

But all Aimee’s plans come crashing down when the private jet that’s taking her from the U.S. to the ranch—where her fiancé awaits her—defects mid-flight and the pilot is forced to perform an emergency landing in the heart of the Amazon rainforest. 

With no way to reach civilisation, being rescued is Aimee and Tristan’s—the pilot—only hope. A slim one that slowly withers away, desperation taking its place. Because death wanders in the jungle under many forms: starvation, diseases. Beasts. 

As Aimee and Tristan fight to find ways to survive, they grow closer. Together they discover that facing old, inner agonies carved by painful pasts takes just as much courage, if not even more, than facing the rainforest. 

Despite her devotion to her fiancé, Aimee can’t hide her feelings for Tristan—the man for whom she’s slowly becoming everything. You can hide many things in the rainforest. But not lies. Or love. 

Withering Hope is the story of a man who desperately needs forgiveness and the woman who brings him hope. It is a story in which hope births wings and blooms into a love that is as beautiful and intense as it is forbidden. 

*This read is recommended for 18+ due to romance and sex and mature themes.*

During a bout of insomnia this week, I purchased this for just 99 cents and I am so glad I did! I absolutely devoured it! It was so unique and absolutely amazing. The ending was so touching, with not just one, but two epilogues! I highly recommend this, especially for just 99 cents!
