Fun Can Be Murder

Fun Can Be Murder
by Jacqueline Fleming

Book: Stand Alone
Publisher: FastPencil Inc
Pub Date: Nov 2012

Book Links:
Goodreads   Amazon 

FUN Can be Murder is my first novel. Like my title character, I too am a single mom who keeps busy with a full time job, children's sports activities and school, traveling when I can, enjoying the beach with family and friends, and writing.
My first book has been quite a journey. I started by frenetically typing the events swirling in my mind, typing, retyping, having a trusted friend review and re-review. All of this before it even began to resemble a book. 
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed learning and creating it.



My Review: I loved this book. It was enjoyable and kept me reading until the end. The story is written well and not over done with details. The setting was new and refreshing to read. Even though there isn't much said about the book, it is worth picking up and reading it.

Its set in Dubai and there is love, mystery, hope, and everything you could want for an awesome romantic story. It a good book to read out in the beautiful sun, or on those rainy days. Its a quick read and very well done as a debut book.

I would read more from Jacqueline and hope she write more awesome books.

4.5 stars!

Inner Fire

Inner Fire
by R.L. Stedman
Release Date: November 2014
Summary from Goodreads:


Themes:
Surveillance, security and personal privacy.

Tagline:
Someone's always watching. 

Back cover:
‘Maybe it would be better if I started at the
beginning.’ Gran watched me carefully. ‘This ability we have; my mother, me.
You. We draw heat along our bodies; anger makes us flame.’
When her friend is assaulted, Corrine Peterson
can’t help reacting. But she didn’t think and now her hands are burnt, Gran is
coming to look after her and, scariest of all, strange men are watching her
house. Could they be terrorists? Secret agents?
It seems that Gran’s idea of a solution is to
introduce Corrine to Rowan. Okay, sure, maybe eighteen year old Rowan is
gorgeous – but he has his own troubles. And right now, Corrine doesn’t need
complications in her life.

But in a world of surveillance and secrecy,
complexity is inevitable. And as the tension mounts Corrine realizes that maybe
Gran can help her, after all.

Louder Than Words


Louder Than Words
Release Date: 09/16/14
Swoon Romance

Summary from Goodreads:
Disappointment has been on speed dial in Ellen Grayson's life lately. Her
dad died, her mom numbs the grief with drugs and alcohol, and her so-called
friends have slowly abandoned her. 

Trusting a popular teacher with her troubles should have been safe and
should NOT have led to an unwelcome seduction attempt that made her desperate
to escape the final moments of Junior year. Lesson learned. Best to keep all
the sordid details to herself and trust no one.

Enter Rex Jacobi, a cocky boy, recently transplanted from New York City
and fellow summer camp employee. Though his quick wit and confidence draws her
in, she can't let him get too close. And summer is just long enough and hot
enough to keep a boy like that at arm's length.

But by the time Rex's charm wears down her resistance, it's too late.
He's put Ellen on the "just friends" shelf and has shifted his
romantic attentions to the impossibly annoying and perky anti-Ellen. Even
worse, the teacher who tried to get her to sleep with him is still at it,
preying on other girls while Ellen struggles to come to terms with what
happened.



With her ability to trust as shaky as a chastity vow on prom night, Ellen
must decide if she has enough remaining courage to speak up about the
well-liked teacher and risk retribution, tell Rex how she really feels about
him and risk heartbreak, or hold all her secrets inside. After all, it's the
only safe place she knows when the only thing louder than words is the fear of
being rejected.

About the Author
Iris St. Clair is the pen name for a long-suffering cubicle worker by day, a Walter Mitty-like dreamer by night. (Her alter ego Tatiana Ivanadance also choreographs gravity-defying routines in those fantasies, but that's another bio.)
No matter what genre she writes, she prefers witty, insecure heroines and kind, persistent heroes able to break through to the gooey heart inside.
In high school she was voted most likely to win at Monopoly and Clue, but least likely to throw a ball anywhere near a target. Thank goodness writing requires less hand-eye coordination, punctuation errors notwithstanding.


Iris believes in the two-year "fish or cut bait" dating rule and has a 20+ year marriage and two teenaged sons as proof of concept. She lives, writes, dreams and dances in the rainy Portland, OR area.

Finding Mr. Darcy


Finding Mr. Darcy: High School Edition
Release Date: 09/16/14

Summary from Goodreads:

Sixteen-year-old Liza Johnson takes fangirl to a whole new level of crazy when she decides to take dating advice from her literary hero: Jane Austen.


With the help of her best friends, Liza sheds her ancient-speak and complete Austen wardrobe for something a bit more modern in an attempt at finding her very own Mr. Darcy.


Enter Will, the new kid and Liza's Darcy incarnate. Add her BFF's ex to mix and the sexy Brit who kisses with an accent, and Liza is in trouble.


So, what's a girl to do? Without her mom to go to relationship advice, Liza turns to the only person she can truly trust with matters of the heart via her mother's copy of COMPLETED WORKS OF JANE AUSTEN.


It's too bad Austen's heroines have never played Spin the Bottle or Seven Minutes in Heaven. Liza's determined to find her true Austen-esque happy ending, but if she can't trust herself instead of books, she just might end up in her own tragic love story.

Unspeakable Truths




Unspeakable TruthseBook.v2 (2)

Book Title: Unspeakable Truths
Author: Alice Tribue
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 2014
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions


Everything I ever learned about fairy-tales was a fucking lie…
Four years ago, my life was everything I wanted it to be: I had everything I wanted, everything I needed, in my best friend and newly wedded husband—Tyler.
Yet, hours after we said "I do," I lost him.
Forever...
The dreams we'd shared, the future we'd planned—all of our hopes and desires, were ripped away in mere seconds.
And now, four years later, my life still feels like a hopeless eternity.
So, I guess it's quite fitting that the last person I want to hear from is currently standing at my front door.
He wants to tell me the truth about that night, he wants to be my new knight in shining armor, but the thing is…
He was the best man...

Between a Rock and a Hard Place

FINAL COVER

Title: Between a Rock and a Hard Place (Radical Rock Stars, #2)
Author: Jenna Galicki
Release Date: October 1, 2104
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
goodreads




Synopsis
She’s a rock goddess.
He’s a sex pistol.
I need them both, in my life and in my bed, and I'm not living without either one of them.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep them there, even if it costs me everything I ever wanted.
I’m Tommy Blade, The Prince of Punk Rock, and this is the rest of our story.

When Jessi Blade is forced to miss the first leg of Immortal Angel’s world tour, Tommy Blade and Angel Garcia are alone together for the first time. Their romance flourishes and brings them closer together, but time apart puts a strain on Tommy and Jessi’s marriage. The demanding schedule of a world tour, pressure from the record label and a wife who feels neglected, leaves Tommy under a blanket of anxiety. He’s helpless as his perfect life slowly falls to pieces.

When Jessi finally catches up to Tommy and Angel four weeks into their world tour, she begins to feel like an outsider. She’s not about to take a back seat to Angel and she competes for Tommy’s attention. Tired of the rivalry, she begins to wonder if they’d be happier without her.

Angel is trying to hold their relationship together, but Jessi’s animosity and Tommy’s nervous tension, are a heavy load to carry. Before long, it becomes clear that their life, and the band, are doomed unless they work out their differences.


Catch up with The Prince of Punk Rock (Radical Rock Stars Book One)
PPRcover
I love her, but I also love him.
She’s everything to me.
He sets my world on fire.
It's our dirty little secret, and it’s about to blow our record deal sky high.
I’m Tommy Blade, the Prince of Punk Rock, and this is our story.

Tommy Blade is a man with a secret. It’s a secret he only shares with one person, Jessi Blade – and the men he surrenders to in the bedroom. Jessi’s only condition to their tumultuous sex life is that the men are one night stands. But when Angel Garcia enters their life, it’s like a match to gasoline.

Mega-talented punk rock singer Angel Garcia, with his smoldering ebony eyes, tight leather pants and unstoppable stage presence, is a man who is used to getting what he wants. He has his eyes set on Tommy Blade as his new lead guitarist, and as his life partner.

Jessi Blade, sympathetic to her husband's bisexual needs, loves him enough to share him, but she never counted on Angel Garcia to test the threshold of her marriage. He makes her life hell . . . and heaven. He’s her damnation and her salvation. She wants to hate him. She wants to despise him. But his charm and raw sex appeal are impossible to resist. Without warning, she finds herself falling in love with her husband's gay lover.

At the height of it all, their punk rock band catapults to stardom.

Their lives are marred by secrecy, deception and sacrifice. Feelings of betrayal, backlash from the sensationalistic media and threats of blackmail send them down a hard road filled with tough decisions.

They aren't your ordinary rock stars. They're radical rock stars. And they have a big story to tell.
