Doing It for Love

Doing it for Love
by Cassie Mae

Book: Al About Love #1
Publisher: Loveswept 
Pub Date: September 2015
Genre: New Adult
Format: eBook
Source: Publisher
Book LinksGoodreads  Amazon 

Cassie Mae’s charming, sexy new novel, perfect for fans of Emma Chase, puts a steamy twist on modern love as one bride-to-be tries to put the spark back in the bedroom—by any means necessary.

Elizabeth Fanning’s life looks pretty perfect, judging by the diamond ring on her finger. Her fiancé, Landon, is sweet, handsome, and hilarious. The trouble is, before they’ve even tied the knot, their sex life has gone from mind-blowing to “meh”—and Liz isn’t ready to be part of an old married couple. After a cathartic call to her best friend, Liz comes up with a brilliant idea. She and Landon may never be able to re-create the magic of their first time, but how amazing would their wedding night be if everything below the neck was off-limits until then?

Liz thinks it’ll bring them closer together. Landon’s convinced she’ll cave first. So they raise the stakes: Whoever lasts longer gets to pick their honeymoon destination. With her heart set on the Bahamas and Landon fighting for snowbound Utah, Liz simply has to win. But pretty soon, her body is screaming for attention, and Landon’s never seemed so far away. Has Liz’s experiment backfired? Losing their little competition would be frustrating—but the one thing she can’t afford to lose is him.

My Review: This was a cute love story. 

Liz and Landon are just living life. Living together, joint bank account, working and them coming home, etc.  Liz was just thinking how they seem to be slightly boring lately. No more chocolateville at the moment. But then that changes when Landon and Liz get engaged. 

Riding on the high of their engagement, they are extra happy right now. Both can't concentrate on work kind of happy. While Landon is working, Liz is planning the wedding details while taking even more care on saving their paychecks and making sure they can afford the wedding they dreamed of. 

Of course, things won't stay peachy forever. They hit moments where they argue on things. Struggle to get by on  mac and cheese. Things that a lot of couples can relate too. 

On top of everything that is going on....they must meet the in-laws...Yikes! After dealing with that whole ordeal...a few more bumps in the road. The wedding day finally arrives.

Overall, I liked the story. It's nothing overly excited, just a sweet love story of a couple in love that can be easily relate-able.

When a human girl is kidnapped by a group of rogue vamps, Dawn discovers that there is more going on in Angel Creek than meets the eye. And it all connects to Ethan, the cute newcomer who seems too perfect to be true, Sebastian, the mysterious vampire with a turbulent past, and even Dawn herself. Dawn must not only succeed in revamping the troubled recruits, but must also prevent the vampire race from being overtaken by a malevolent villain who has a strange and obsessive fascination with her. As threat escalates, romance blooms, and ghosts from her past begin to surface, Dawn is sure of only one thing: her life will never be the same.

Raven and Alexander have to figure out what the nefarious vampire has in store for Dullsville's teen and vampire population. Can Raven convince Jagger to listen to her plans to make the Crypt the morbidly magnificent dance club it could be? Will it be safe for mortals and vampires alike?

And as Sebastian and Luna's relationship heats up, Raven wonders about her own amorous fate: Will Alexander ever turn her? Does he crave her and does he want to spend eternity together? And what does she really want?

Repeat

Repeat
by Kylie Scott

Book: Stand Alone
Publisher: Kylie Scott
Pub Date: April 7, 2019
Genre: New Adult
Format: ARC
Source: Publisher
Book LinksGoodreads  Amazon  Book Depository 

From New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott comes an irresistible new romance. 

When a vicious attack leaves 25-year-old Clementine Johns with no memory, she's forced to start over. Now she has to figure out who she was and why she made the choices she did - which includes leaving the supposed love of her life, tattoo artist Ed Larsen, only a month before. 

Ed can hardly believe it when his ex shows up at his tattoo parlor with no memory of their past, asking about the breakup that nearly destroyed him. The last thing he needs is more heartache, but he can't seem to let her go again. Should they walk away for good, or does their love deserve a repeat performance?

My Review: LOVE!! 

I love the way Kylie took a tough situation and turned it into a re-do kind of love story.

Clem has no clue about her life. No clue what happened before she woke up in the hospital. No clue what her favorite color is, favorite food, book, etc. The injuries from her attack will heal, but her memories may never return. 

Clem is going to stay with her sister. She is going to start over again, but this time, as a new version of Clem. To start....she walks into her ex's tattoo shop and then gets yelled at. Aside from the shock from being yelled at, Clem has to look at this gorgeous guy and ask him for help. 

Ed was not thrilled when Clem walked back into his life. Not after what happened between them. But Ed can't also be so mad that he can't help the women he loved to remember things about herself. 

So together they text each other. Clem asks questions and learns things about herself. During the process they fought, neither of them really to thrilled about any of this. But give it some time and this new version of Clem will fall back in love with the one she's meant to be with. 

Watching Ed and Clem re-connect, re-grow their spark, move back in together, and everything else in between was amazing. 

Perfectly heart wrenching and tissue needing kind of book! Kylie never fails to amaze me.

Song of the Dead

Song of the Dead
by Sarah Gleen Marsh

Book: Reign of the Fallen #2
Publisher: Razorbill
Pub Date: January 22, 2019
Genre: Young Adult
Format: eBook
Source: Borrowed

The Dead must stay buried.

Karthia is nothing like it used to be. The kingdom's borders are open for the first time in nearly three hundred years, and raising the dead has been outlawed. Odessa is determined to explore the world beyond Karthia's waters, hoping to heal a heart broken in more ways than she can count. But with Meredy joining the ocean voyage, vanquishing her sorrow will be a difficult task.

Despite the daily reminder of the history they share, Odessa and Meredy are fascinated when their journey takes them to a land where the Dead rule the night and dragons roam the streets. Odessa can't help being mesmerized by the new magic--and by the girl at her side. But just as she and Meredy are beginning to explore the new world, a terrifying development in Karthia summons them home at once.

Growing political unrest on top of threats from foreign invaders means Odessa and Meredy are thrust back into the lives they tried to leave behind while specters from their past haunt their tenuous relationship. Gathering a force big enough to ward off enemies seems impossible, until one of Queen Valoria's mages creates a weapon that could make them invincible. As danger continues to mount inside the palace, Odessa fears that without the Dead, even the greatest invention won't be enough to save their fates.

In this enthralling, heartrending sequel to Reign of the Fallen, Odessa faces the fight of her life as the boundaries between the Dead and the living are challenged in a way more gruesome than ever before.
 


My Review: Odessa is back and looking to explore other parts of the world with her friends. 

Odessa is looking to heal from her loss. When they make a stop and anchor ship, things aren't getting any easier for her. On top of trying to heal, she arrives to a place where she is hated. Well, the folks who can raise the dead are hated. So Odessa, the captain and Meredy, make way to the next stop. 

The next stop doesn't start off to a great start. The next stop releases a storm to stop them. However, it was all a mis-understanding as they didn't expect visitors. The folks are kind and offer to repair the ship's damage from the storm and anything else they need. 

After meeting some kind people...finally. There is news that issues have happened back at home. Odessa and her friends rush back home, along with a dragon for the ride. 

Once they arrive back, things are going to change....

Overall....I liked this story. I would have like it if the pace was faster and more details in certain parts. But overall, it's a great end to a two book series.

Weekly Spotlight - Maxwell



Dare to Kiss
When tragedy tears down everything she loves, his touch will give her a second chance.

Like most seventeen-year-old girls, Lacey Robinson loves her family. What makes her unique is her unmatched talent for baseball. With an unhittable fastball and a killer slider, it's no wonder Arizona State University wants to talk about a scholarship for its boys' team. She's living out her dream, until life throws a nasty and deadly curveball.

When she loses her mother and sister to a home invasion, baseball and her dreams die with them. Stricken with nightmares, panic attacks, and even blackouts, Lacey is diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Upon recommendation from her psychiatrist, the former baseball phenom moves across the country and tries to pick up the pieces from her life.

Now, only two things matter to Lacey--overcoming her PTSD and making the Kensington High baseball team. When she meets the tall, sexy, and drool-worthy Kade Maxwell, his magical touch awakens her feminine side, and his kiss erases her nightmares. As her symptoms start to fade, her sports dreams take a turn for the worse, as baseball captain Aaron Seever doesn't want a girl on the team.

But when Kade's arch-nemesis returns to town to settle an old score, Lacey's PTSD comes back with a vengeance. She'll need to learn how to push her demons away or she'll lose everything good she has left.







Dare to Dream
Bad boy Kade Maxwell knows all too well the pain and loss of the death of a loved one after his sister’s death tore his family—especially his mother—to pieces. He longs for the day his mother can heal from the mental anguish and return home to live with her family again. He prays every day that God will keep his brothers safe and that his father will one day be reunited with his wife. He doesn’t dream of his future. In fact, he had nightmarish glimpses of what his life would’ve been like as an adult until he met Lacey. She’s a light that cuts through his darkness. Her beauty, her determination, and her dedication in overcoming her own tragedy energizes his belief that maybe—just maybe—he can dream again.

Lacey Robinson has suffered tragedy at the hands of a killer who took away her sister and mother. After a change of scenery and a new life, her PTSD is on the mend. With the love and strength from Kade Maxwell and the help of her psychiatrist, she’s been able to work on the triggers that cause her panic attacks and blackouts. With a clear head and a clear road to the future, Lacey dreams of three things: She longs to find the person who killed her family. She wants to play baseball for ASU so bad she can taste it. And she wants a future with Kade Maxwell. But with several roadblocks thrown in her way, she may not get everything she wants. A trip to California opens a door that could expose the killer. Aaron Seever is up to his psychotic, bullying antics, and Kade has his own path for the future, one Lacey isn’t sure includes her.


Kade vows to love and protect Lacey even if that means his life for hers. Lacey vows to push through her demons and show Kade and her family that she has what it takes to rise above tragedy, even if she has to run into the arms of a killer to save a loved one.


Strong language. Sexual content. Violence. Intended for audiences 18 years and older.








Dare to Love
Sexy, confident, college playboy, Kelton Maxwell has his future right in the palm of his hands. Women want him. Guys want to be him. And he’s got one foot in the door at Harvard Law. All he needs now is just one prestigious internship at a highfalutin law firm to seal the deal. Nothing can stand in his way.

Until…

A blast from the past smacks him right in the face, bringing back memories he tried to forget. Kelton swore he’d never go back--never put himself through that again. He’d rather pledge his allegiance to the devil himself before he drops to his knees to worship a woman—especially her.

He won’t dare to get close
Won’t dare to let her in.
Can’t dare to love.

Sweet Shadows

Sweet Shadows
by Tera Lynn Childs

Book: Medusa Girls #2
Publisher: HarperCollins
Pub Date: September 2012
Genre: Young Adult
Format: Print
Source: Bought
Book LinksGoodreads  Amazon  Book Depository 

Triplets narrate, teen descendants of Medusa. Warring factions among the gods of Olympus are coming; creatures of the Abyss are pushing into San Francisco; boys in their lives hide dangerous secrets.

Tough Gretchen has fought monsters the longest, trains newfound sisters. Perfectionist Greer keeps her social calendar, faints from visions. Compromising Grace worries about missing brother Thane.

  
My Review: Mehhhh

The first book was okay, not the greatest as I had hoped. But this sequel hasn't changed my mind on the series yet. It's slow and still lacks the excitement that I'm craving.

Greer, Gretchen and Grace and learning more about themselves and their destiny. They found Ursula's sister and hope she can give them the answers they need. But they can't get anywhere, not when their only lead gets taken through a portal into the abyss. 

The girls are stunned and trying to find another way to get answers, find Ursula, her sister, and figure out which way to go with their destiny. The book, once again takes a while to pick up, and when it does, it's not by much.

At the rate this series is going, I don't think I'll want to finish it.

Writer Get Noticed! A Strengths-Based Approach to Creating a Standout Author Platform

Stop feeling invisible and start attracting the attention you deserve.

Have you been writing for years, but feel like no one notices? Have you published your stories, only to gain a handful of readers? Do your marketing efforts feel like shouting into a void?

Veteran writer and motivational coach Colleen M. Story helps you break the spell of invisibility to reveal the author platform that will finally draw readers your way.

There are more books out there than ever before, and readers have many other things vying for their attention. A writer can feel like a needle in a haystack, and throwing money at the problem rarely helps. What does work is creating a platform that stands out, but in a sea of a million platforms, how is one to do that?

"Writer Get Noticed!" takes a new approach, dispelling the notion that fixing your writing flaws and expanding your social media reach will get you the readers you deserve. Instead, discover a myriad of strengths you didn’t know you had, then use them to find your author theme, power up your platform, and create a new author business blueprint, all while gaining insight into what sets you apart as a writer and creative artist.

Writers need readers to achieve their highest potential. Find your way to stand out, and let it lead you to the writing career that fulfills all your expectations and more.

My Review: I'm excited to do another Colleen tour!

These books are tricky to review, as this is something that differs to each reader in MANY ways. Nonetheless, I always learn and take away something from her books that truly do help and work! Awesome right! (no, just me?) (:

Anywho... After reading this, I could see why I got mixed reactions going on with my writing/stories. Why some of them work out better than others and how I can use those little things to help boost my not so great posts.  What I thought and went about in marketing ways has changed. The more I went into the book, the more I learned. The more my eyes opened in order to make my work the best it can be!

Does this book work/help? Yes! It does, at least for me. I've found I can relate and take way a lot of  things in Colleen's books. Is it an easy overnight changer of life? Not exactly. You may see changes happen soon or it may take a while. In the end it all depends on you and the time you wish to spend in making your dreams come true. 

Overall, it's another hit with Colleen. I've certainly seen changes in my writing style, improvements on using my strengths to work for me. Marketing tweaks. All worth it!

Pavement turns into cobblestones and there’s a more touristy feel to the shops in Old Port. Lots of beautiful, over-a-century-old brick buildings. I’m almost tempted by a waterfront lobster place, but continue on, looking for Vito’s—the Italian restaurant Ed recommended I try.

And I’m glad I did. It smells amazing and has heavy wooden tables and dark red napkins, silver cutlery glinting in the low light. There are plenty of shadowy nooks and atmosphere aplenty, despite the crowd.
Just when I think I’m going to get turned away, the maître d’ smiles, obviously recognizing me on sight, and leads me to the only available table.
I feel comfortable here. Maybe it’s the warm welcome. Or maybe some part of me deep down recognizes this place. Unlike the froufrou clothing, Vito’s still fits. Though I should probably dress up more next time. Black yoga pants and a T-shirt is a bit slummy.
“Clem?” asks a familiar deep voice.
I raise my eyes from the menu to find Ed staring down at me. He looks good. But then, he always does. More dressed up than normal in gray slacks and a white button-down shirt with his hair slicked back. God, he’s so handsome and smooth looking, like a movie star out of an old black and white movie. Just behind him is a woman with wavy shoulder-length dark hair. She’s beautiful too. Of course she is. They make a great looking couple, dammit.
Meanwhile, the maître d’ stands nearby, visibly flustered. “I’m so sorry. I just assumed . . . ”
“Shit,” I say, realization dawning. “This is your table.”
Ed clears his throat. “Yeah.”
“Awkward. Okay.” I slide out of the chair, grabbing my usual bag with money, cell, and book inside. God. The brunette is dressed in a sexy off-the-shoulder number and I look like crap. “What a coincidence, huh? Enjoy your meal.”
And I’m out of there, pronto. Not even the cooler air outside can take the heat out of my face. It’s just as well that I’m wearing sneakers and not heels. Otherwise, there would be no chance of moving fast on the cobblestone streets. The usual ache/awkwardness caused by the thought of Ed escalates into an agonizing kind of pain. I think I’m having a heart attack. Or maybe my heart just hurts. Which makes no sense at all because he’s not mine. Not in any way, shape, or form. The man doesn’t even like me. And I definitely don’t enjoy the riot of feelings he inspires.
“Clem, wait!” Ed runs after me, his expression tense. “Are you all right?”
“Sure. Why wouldn’t I be?”
He just looks at me.
“That was unfortunate, them thinking we were still together and meeting for dinner. I mean, what were the chances of me turning up here tonight?” I babble, staring at his shoes. Much easier than meeting his face.
“Random,” he says.
“It’s just that you told me to try this restaurant and I was in the area, so . . . ”
“Yeah? What were you doing?”
“Taking a self-defense class.”
“Good. That’s good.”
I cross my arms over my chest. Only it feels defensive, best to just let them hang at my sides. He’s freshly shaved, the strong line of his jaw dramatic in the low lighting. All of the planes and angles of his face are so perfect. Also, he smells incredibly good. Probably some expensive cologne or just his general coolness leaking from his pores. I don’t know. But at such a close distance, I can almost believe the emotion in his eyes is something other than annoyance or pity.
“Anyway,” I say, taking a deep breath. “You should get back. I guess I’ll try the place another time. Make my own reservation next time.”
“It was always your favorite.”
That stops me. “You’re taking your date to my favorite restaurant?”
“I happen to like the place too.” Lines crease his brow. “What, we need to divvy up the town now?”
“No, just . . . my favorite? Really? Isn’t it weird, going somewhere we made memories?” I raise the corner of my lips in distaste. “Obviously not, or you wouldn’t be here with her and this wouldn’t have just happened. Never mind.”
Now the lines have spread to beside his beautiful eyes.
“Though maybe that’s the point, you want to overwrite everything we did together. Make newer and better memories.”
“You know, maybe I do.”
“Fantastic. Awesome. Best of luck with that.” My voice rises in volume. “I hope she’s everything for you that I never could be. A paragon of female worthiness. A lady on the streets, a wildcat between the sheets, and all that shit.”
A couple passes by, darting looks at us. Fair enough.
“And I’m yelling at you on street corners now like a deranged person. Great.”
“Please continue, Clem,” he bites out. “I for one am enjoying the hell out of all this honesty for once.”
“Oh, fuck off back to your date, Ed.”
His shoulders rise on an exceptionally heavy sigh and honest to God, I feel exactly the same way. Apparently this city isn’t big enough for both my ex and me. Not tonight, at least. I might have forgotten the initial breakup. But we were sure making up for the loss of those memories now. And I barely even know the guy. It shouldn’t have mattered where he went, let alone with whom. It shouldn’t hurt. Empty was so much safer.
“I don’t want to yell at you. I don’t want to be this person. Give my love to Gordon,” I say, sounding much calmer than I feel. “Hope you have a nice night.”
“Clem . . . ”
I don’t stop walking and I don’t turn back.
