The Unlikeable Demon Hunter
Deborah Wilde

Nava Katz #1

Published April 18th 2017

Purchase: Amazon
Bridesmaids meets Buffy with a dash of the seven deadly sins.

The age-old story of what happens when a foul-mouthed, romance impaired heroine with no edit button and a predilection for hot sex is faced with her worst nightmare–a purpose.

Ari Katz is intelligent, driven, and will make an excellent demon hunter once initiated into the Brotherhood of David. However, this book is about his twin Nava: a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess, who is thrilled her brother is stuck with all the chosen one crap.

When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts Ari’s induction ceremony, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn’t expect is to take her brother’s place among the–until now–all-male demon hunters. Even worse? Her infuriating leader is former rock star Rohan Mitra.

Too bad Rohan’s exactly what Nava’s always wanted: the perfect bad boy fling with no strings attached, because he may also be the one to bring down her carefully erected emotional shields. That’s as dangerous as all the evil fiends vying for the bragging rights of killing the only female ever chosen for Demon Club.

Odds of survival: eh.

Odds of having a very good time with Rohan before she bites it: much better.

About the Author

Website | Goodreads | Facebook | Twitter
A global wanderer, hopeless romantic, and total cynic with a broken edit button, Deborah writes adult urban fantasy to satisfy her love of smexy romances and tales of chicks who kick ass. She is all about the happily-ever-after, with a huge dose of hilarity along the way.

“It takes a bad girl to fight evil. Go Wilde.”

Excerpt

“Show me your power.” His hand snaked out and caught my wrist, pressing his palm against mine. Holding me in a barely contained show of strength.

“Death wish, much? I showed you in the backyard.”

“Barely even a tease.” He drawled the words.

I meant to pull away but I got my directions mixed up and pushed back against the warmth of his skin. “I will fire up. I’m warning you.”

Rohan leaned in. “Do it.” His eyes flared and I caught my bottom lip between my teeth.

Then some last iota of common sense–and self-preservation–raised its hand. I jerked away from him. If he was a demon, I should have killed him six times over by now. What the hell was I doing? “You still haven’t convinced me that you’re not a demon,” I said, giving the evil spawn another chance for reasons I didn’t want to examine too closely. “Fame doesn’t preclude that. Nor does having a super cool mom.”

“That doesn’t, but this does.” He held up his pinky finger, showing me the same gold ring as mine, with the same engraved hamsa and blue sapphire iris, which it turns out, was standard issue. And here I’d been hoping for a succession of property-stamping jewelry as I rose through the hunter ranks.

I fell back against my headboard. “You’re part of Demon Club. Fuck. Me.”

Rohan oogled me. “I won’t take that off the table yet.” He propped his chin on his hands on the top of the chair.

I cocked an eyebrow at him. “Did you just put me on a table?”

“More invoked a proverbial table and a conditional ‘yet.’ The ‘yet’ is an important component of this potential event,” he said.

You know what else was an important component? The presumptuous jerk still having attached balls for our proverbial fuck.

“I used to write fanfic about Fugue State Five,” I said in a conversational tone.

Lookie lookie. Return of the amused smirk. “How was I?” he asked.

I shrugged, examining my chipped nail polish. “No clue. I wrote self-insert fanfic about the rest of your band. Zack, your keyboardist was astounding.” I drawled that last word so he’d get the full implication.

“My keyboardist?” Rohan’s smugness was R.I.P. “But he’s gay.”

“I assure you that didn’t matter.” I gave a self-satisfied sigh. “He succumbed to my fifteen-year-old self’s wiles.”

Rohan straightened. “Which of my much older bandmates also succumbed, Lolita?”

“Please. You guys were only three years older.” I twisted a dark curl around my finger. “But pretty much of all of them.” I raked a pointed look over him. “The ones worth writing about.” He didn’t react. “Though succumbing is far more innocent than you’re imagining,” I admitted.

“I doubt you were ever innocent.”

That was highly insulting. Did he think I’d been born this way? Please. I’d worked hard to cultivate this level of sexual awesomeness.

Amnesia Duet: Book 2

Published August 18th

Purchase Book 1: Amazon
There’s freedom in remembering.

My past is a double-edged sword.

Damned if I do remember, damned if I don’t.

Remembering beyond the horrors I already have will change me. Change us.

But, what if I’m living a lie? What if everything I thought was wrong, what if who I thought I was is wrong?

If not her, then…

Who am I?

Eddie says it doesn’t matter, but deep down I’m terrified it does.

I’m trapped. Held prisoner by a past I can’t remember and a future that might not belong to me.

There’s a light though, not at the end of the tunnel… But wavering in the distance, calling to me from Rumor Island.

That light, it scares me far more than darkness. Am I brave enough to confront it?

So many questions, so few answers.

I don’t have a choice; the truth always finds a way to the surface. Finally learning who I really am will be a permanent life sentence:

Total punishment or absolute amnesty.

*Please note Amnesty contains subjects and situations that some readers may find disturbing.

The Boy I Hate
Taylor Sullivan

Published August 12th 2017

Purchase: Amazon
Samantha Smiles and Renee Montgomery have been best friends for over a decade. They’ve shared laughs, secrets, and a mutual hatred for one person: Tristan Montgomery, Renee’s older brother. He was the guy every girl wanted, and every guy wanted to be, and it wasn’t uncommon they’d befriend his little sister just to get closer to him. Which was exactly how Samantha became Renee’s saving grace. She was the only girl Renee could trust not to fall in love with her older brother.

Until the one night Samantha spent with him alone, leaving her questioning everything she’d ever known about the blond headed heart-throb.
Years later, Renee asks Samantha to be her maid of honor. With no other option, Samantha is forced to drive cross-country with the focus of their teenage ire.

He was her first kiss.

Her only secret.

Can Samantha survive the trip cross-country with the reckless Tristan Montgomery? The guy who did what he wanted, whenever he wanted, without worry for tomorrow? Or will she discover a different side of him. One that’s sweet, funny, and maybe a little bit vulnerable. And fall completely and helplessly in love for the first time in her adult life with the one man who could cause her to lose her best friend forever?

About the Author

Website | Goodreads | Facebook | Twitter | Email
Taylor is mom of three young (or not so young) children she loves more than life. She runs them around endlessly, hoping she looks presentable enough to be out in public, and day dreams about fictional characters. Maybe she's crazy, or maybe she craves the barbie games she played as a little girl a little too much, but that's where her stories are born. It's where they blossom, and grow, and eventually breath life on the page of her stories.

She'd love to hear from you. (Or I'd love to hear from you. I wrote this in 3rd person to sound cooler)

Excerpt

She looked down to the parking lot, seeing his Mustang still parked below, and knew she was about to lose it. She headed for her own room, placed the breakfast on the nearby table, then rid of every last drop of patience, began pounding on Tristan’s door.

“Wake up you lazy bastard! Wake up, or I swear to God I’ll beat this door down with my fists.”

A large boom sounded from inside the room, and Samantha smiled with satisfaction as she continued to pound. “That’s right,” she whispered. “Get up you lazy ass—”

But before she could finish her sentence, the door was yanked out from under her. She stumbled forward, barely able to catch her footing, and slammed face first into warm, solid, skin.

She froze, because the glimpse she caught on the way down wasn’t one she ever thought she’d see. It was a very large, very bare, and very “Good morning” version of Tristan Montgomery.

“Please tell me you’re not naked,” she whispered, but it was mostly to herself, because she didn’t really need him to answer. She squeezed her eyes shut, took one step backward, and turned around.

They both stood there, quiet and still, and she tried to recover her heart. The sight of Tristan in nothing more than his birthday suit left her feeling dizzy. She’d seen many naked men in her days, though until now, the only one she’d seen in person was Steven. Especially this close up.

“Well?” he finally asked, when she remained silent.

Well? Well… Tristan was much…larger than Steven. Much larger in every way imaginable.

She cleared her throat, knowing her voice would’ve cracked otherwise. “It’s ten in the morning,” she answered with more confidence than she felt.

“And?” But his voice was thick and husky, and she could swear he was having as difficult a time recovering as she was.

“It’s time to go.”

“Is it?”

“Yes,” she said, hating how the tone of his voice sent a shiver down her spine. “And you should really put some clothes on. The people of Utah don’t want to see…that.”

He chuckled, but shifted slightly behind her. “Hate to break it to you sweetheart, but a lot of people want to see that.”

She cringed, because she knew it was true. Like in high school, she knew women lined up to catch the barest glimpse of Tristan.

He moved quietly behind her, his steps so soft you’d never know they came from a man of his size. “You can turn around now.”

She raked her teeth over her bottom lip, taking the very corner and chewing it before turning to face him. He still had no shirt on, his feet were bare, but he wore a pair of old gray sweats resting so low on his hips you could tell he wasn’t wearing anything underneath.

“Aren’t you freezing?” she asked, feeling a shiver run through her own body.

“No,” he said, leaning against the doorway and crossing his feet at the ankles. A tiny grin teased at the corner of his mouth, and she knew he was having too much fun at her expense.

She turned toward the Mustang, not attempting to hide her irritation. “I brought you breakfast,” she said quickly.

“That’s nice of you.”

“It’s not nice. Just my way of getting your lazy ass out of bed.”

He threw his head back with laughter. “Are you always this pleasant in the morning?”

Pressing her lips together, she wasn’t about to let him to pull her into another argument. “We need to go,” she said, turning on her heels and opening the door to her room.

She walked inside, hoping the action would give him the hint to do the same. “I’ll have your breakfast waiting for you in the car.” But before she closed the door, she could swear she caught him smiling.

“My God.” she whispered, resting her forehead against the wall, taking in all the air she’d forgotten to take over the last two minutes. “Three more days. Just three more days of Tristan Montgomery.” She repeated the last words over and over, gathered up the rest of her belongings, and headed for the car.

Published August 15th 2017

Purchase: Amazon
I guess I just forgot.

To ask him what he did for a living, I mean.

And by the time I did, I was in—balls deep, as he’d call it.

He was the perfect boyfriend.

Attentive, gorgeous, guessing my every wish and fulfilling them.

The sex was earth-shattering.

He even dealt with my crazy mom the way no one else could.

He popped the question, God, such a perfect guy.

There was just one issue:

He f*cked other girls on camera for a living.

How the hell do you deal with that?

About the Author

Between studies, teaching, and advising, Sunniva has spent her entire adult life in a college environment. Most of her novels are new adult romance geared toward smart, passionate readers with a love for eclectic language and engaging their brain as well as their heart while reading.

Born in the Land of the Midnight Sun, the author spent her early twenties making the world her playground. Southern Europe: Spain, Italy, Greece--Argentina: Buenos Aires, in particular. The United States finally kept her interest, and after half a decade in Los Angeles, she now lounges in the beautiful city of Savannah.

Sometimes, Sunniva writes with a paranormal twist (Shattering Halos, Stargazer, and Cat Love). At other times, it's contemporary (Pandora Wild Child, Leon's Way, Adrenaline Crush, Walking Heartbreak, and Dodging Trains, coming in late March 2016).

This author is the happiest when her characters let their emotions run off with them, shaping her stories in ways she never foresaw. She loves bad-boys and good-boys run amok, and like in real life, her goal is to keep the reader on her toes until the end of each story.

Excerpt

Swapping work shifts with Frieda is crazy worth it as the Bentley pulls into our driveway. I watch Ciro ease out of the car and straightening, shoulders wide over his slender build. Lin is next to me, nudging my side. I’m ticklish and try to move away, but he just follows me, saying, “Eh? Eh?” like he’s Italian instead of Chinese.

In my haste to get to the door first, I knock over one of the four flamingo-and-hibiscus arrangements I’ve ostracized to the entryway, and Lin opens while I scoop up the mess. Water spills toward the front door, a prolongation of our welcome committee.

I peer through a lock that’s escaped my studiously loose bun and stare straight at Ciro. He looks ill, like he’s had too much sun. But then I realize it’s just his eyes; they simmer, which makes them seem even greener than usual. The smattering of golden and silver flecks is there too, making his irises glitter while he takes me in.

“Hai, I’m Lin Eun Young, Savannah’s!”

Ciro tears his gaze away from me to look at my roommate. Who’s bobbing his head hard, a grin on his face. Ciro accepts Lin’s hand and shakes it before his attention flicks between the two of us. “You’re Savannah’s?”

“You forgot a word, right, Lin? You’re my roommate.”

Lin’s expression doesn’t change, and his head keeps bobbing, so I start to nod too, and suddenly we’re a chaos of bobbing heads, rotten flower water and flamingo lilies—in my hands, on the floor, and in a cannon replica pointing straight at Ciro.

At the outer corners of Ciro’s eyes, there are fine wrinkles. They deepen as he breaks into a smile, taking in the flurry of red and green surrounding us.

“Nice to meet you, Lin. Do you guys need help?” He lowers next to me, picking up a few hibiscus. “Nice.”

“I figured you’d like them. I got them for you.” I bite down on my smile as I scoop wet leaves from the tiles and deposit them on a placemat. God knows what it’s doing in the hallway.

“Great taste, great taste.” Of course he sees the cannon.

“You like cannon?” That’s Lin, pulling his signature move, slim fingers steepling in front of his nose with excitement.

“Pow.” And the picture is complete. Now Sam’s sauntering out from the living room just when I needed less, not more dimwits in here gawking.

“Never mind him.” I wish cheeks never flamed. “I’m ready if you want to get out of here? Sam, you’re on flower duty!” I bark the last part out to shut everyone up. Then I brush dead plant remnants off my hands and try to hoist Ciro up from his hunched position. He stands slowly, looking between Sam and me.

Okay, fine. I get it. “Samuel Ilardi, Ciro Silveira, nice to meet each other,” I mutter, rosy-cheeked.

“She’s so easily embarrassed,” Sam tells Ciro in lieu of pleasantries. Ciro uh-hums in agreement. “You see it on her eyes. See how big they are right now?”

“Sam, you’re a dick. Go home.”

Ciro’s gaze caresses me from the side, which does nothing to alleviate my awkwardness. “Yeah, I noticed her eyes when I first saw her, and I was done for.”

“No shit.” Sam nods sagely.

Thanks to the influence of his older siblings, Jim gravitated toward fantasy and sci-fi when looking for something to read. He wrote his first story at age fourteen. A school project, The Magic Coin was a fantasy that involved a king, some bad guys, and, not surprisingly, a magical token.

These days, Jim writes romance on the sweet end. If you ask him what is a guy like him is doing writing romance, he'll reply, "Those are the stories in my head." A believer that the world has enough doom and gloom, he likes stories with a happy ending, regardless of genre.

He lives in Indianapolis with his wonderful wife Nancy, sons, Seamus and Aidan, and kitty-cat Maria.

Playlist

  1. “I am the Fire” by Halestorm – This would be Gabrielle’s on-track theme song, as she’s picked up the pieces of her career to resume chasing her dream. Lzzy Hale, the lead singer of Halestorm is an amazing talent and this song of belief in oneself and female empowerment would really resonate with Gabrielle.

  2. “Angry Young Man” by Billy Joel – Brad might not like it, but this classic rock song really captures the essence of who he is early in the story. His dreams have been crushed and he’s chosen to carry those negative feelings with him, like a weight around his neck.

  3. “The Distance" by Cake – I can totally envision Brad racing to this song early in his career. It also carries a touch of the rage that drives him after his crash.

  4. “Madness” by Muse – This is how I imagine Brad would feel when he realizes how deeply he cares for Gabrielle. He knows it’s crazy to pursue a relationship with her because of their history and his broken-ness, but he can’t help it, and he wants her to help him move beyond the madness.

  5. “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol – There’s a highly emotional scene in Start Your Engines when Brand and Gabrielle finally talk about their past and the damage it’s done to both of them. In the aftermath, they spend some quiet time, simply being in each other’s company. This is the song that would be playing in the background as they lay together in the grass together.

  6. “Sweet Home Chicago” Blues Brothers version – Start Your Engines has more than a handful of ups and downs for Brad and Gabrielle, but one of the highest peaks is Gabrielle’s first win of the season in Chicago. I thought it would be fitting to celebrate the team’s first race win in the City of Big Shoulders with this Chicago blues classic.

  7. “Sabotage” by the Beastie Boys – Gabrielle and Brad face plenty of challenges on their way to their happily ever after, but it’s simply crushing when they find out people have been scheming against them. This would be Brad’s response to those people.

  8. “I won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz – While Gabrielle and Brad both are works in progress in Start Your Engines, Gabrielle is much further along her road to healing. Because of that, I can see Gabrielle telling Brad she won’t give up on him, or them, when he asks her for help.

  9. “Ultraviolet (Baby, Light My Way)” by U2 – To me, this song encapsulates Brad and his deep love for Gabrielle when he makes his grand gesture near the end of the book. He’s ready to let her lead him wherever their road takes them. Plus, this one of my top five favorite U2 songs.

  10. “Adventure of a Lifetime” by Coldplay – I simply adore this song. From its bouncy groove to its hopeful message, I think it’s a perfect metaphor for the adventure of a lifetime that awaits Gabrielle and Brad at the end of the story.

Purchase: Amazon
High school juniors, Layla and Tyler, are complete opposites. Sure she’s a cheerleader and he’s a football player, but she thinks he’s the biggest jerk in the school and he thinks she is too high on her horse to even be worth of a second glance from him. And when the two of them are near one another, sparks fly in all the wrong directions. They are NOT interested in speaking to one another, let alone date.

But when Layla unknowingly sends Tyler a smack-down text meant for the girl sending naked photos to her then-boyfriend, Adam, Tyler has no idea it’s Layla and decides to play along. After all, Tyler cannot resist messing with the pissed off girl firing off texts about junk pictures, cheating, and girl code.

As the fallout from Adam’s sexting scandal plays out in front of the entire school, Tyler and Layla secretly continue to text one another using fake names. But as days and weeks pass, things take a turn for the serious between them, and suddenly, their texts mean more. They both begin to consider revealing their true identity to the other and taking the relationship from texts to dates, then kissing and maybe more.

They say there’s a thin line between love and hate. Can reality live up to the fantasy, or will Layla and Tyler be forever offsides?

Excerpt

Beep! Beeeeeeeeep! “Stop screwing with your phone and pay attention to the road!” I blow my horn some more. The light is green, has been for a good forty seconds. I glance over at my best friend for some support for my general crabbiness this morning. She’s not giving it though, she’s too busy tapping away on her own cellphone.

“You believe this guy? Same to you, Buddy!” I yell as I catch his middle finger pop up in front of his rearview mirror.

Rachel doesn’t say anything. She’s still engrossed in messages from whomever is texting her. Possibly the latest gossip, or party happening. Who knows?

I’m usually a perky, non-violent person. All of this has seemed to change recently. I saw an episode on the news about how much society is turning into walking mutants because they’re so absorbed in their phones. You won’t catch me searching for the perfect snap shot of yourself, only to be mauled by a huge mountain lion ready to pounce from behind. I don’t want to be mauled by some crazy animal in a park. I mean how awful would that be, death-by-selfie. So, I gave up on taking poses in the cute outfits I wear and selfies altogether.

And don’t get me started on texting. I loathe it. I know what you’re thinking. What kind of weirdo hates texting? The kind who’s dyslexic. And when everything looks like absolute gibberish anyway, and now I have to read words on a small screen just to find out who made out with whom; no thanks. If it weren’t for my text-to-voice app, I’d be screwed. People would think I’m a complete airhead because I couldn’t decipher a silly text.

“Sorry; what were you having a beyotch fit about?” Rachel asks drawing my eyes from the road and landing on her. “Austin was telling me what happened to Jared during football practice yesterday. Plus, I guess there is this monster party after the game Friday. You in or out?” She looks up from her phone.

“In,” I answer reverting my attention to the line of cars turning into the school’s parking lot. I know my boyfriend Adam will want to go hang out with his team so it’s a given that I’ll be tagging along. Although I really would rather it just be him and me this weekend. Lately we’re either in group functions, at parties, on double dates at the movies, or hanging out with his friends. I just want some me-time with him. No disgusting belching contests happening in the background or listening to other couples make out next to me. Gross.

“Austin wants to know if your sister’s coming?”

This question shakes me from my miserable funk, and I snort laugh. My twin sister at a party? HA-HA-HA. OMG; I think I peed my pants a little. “That’s not happening. Unless the words ‘book,’ ‘ComicCon,’ or ‘mud’ were in front of the word ‘party.’ Then she’d probably go. But yeah; no. Why’s does he want to know? Is he crushing on my sister?” That could be news I could get down with.

“He said one of the guys was asking.”

Raising a brow, I inquire, “Which one?” It’s probably Chase, but that would be weird considering he’s her best friend and knows her daily schedule.

She’s tapping away again as I pull up to the school parking lot. “He won’t say.”

“Why not?”

“Do you really care or are you just morbidly interested that someone might actually like your super wacked out sister?”

“She’s not … wacked out.”

Rachel is my best friend, but she’s not a fan of my sister, Juliet. In fact, she pretty much despises her. My twin isn’t mean or anything, she’s just … super smart. And sometimes tends to let her geekiness fly. She can recite the first five chapters of each Harry Potter book. She knows all the lines word-for-word in every Star Wars movie. Every stinkin’ one.

Speaking of my awesome twin, she pulls up next to me and slams her Jeep door. “You did it again! You know you only have one simple chore. One. And every time I get stuck with it.”

I roll my eyes at her. “Calm down, sis. I’ll get it next time.”

She smiles wickedly at me. It’s like looking in a mirror since our physical features are almost exactly the same. The only one small difference isn’t something most people notice just from looking at our faces: she has a small birthmark on her neck just below her ear, shaped like a heart, whereas I do not. Everything else is definitely the same, from the dark, rich brown hair to the mossy-green eyes, right down to the height of a whopping 5’6”. I’ve thought about cutting my waist-length hair to my shoulders just so people can tell us apart.

“You say that every time! I’m done helping you out Layla. Maybe next time instead of rushing off to get Starbucks, see Adam, or pick up your BFF you’ll do your chores and stop putting them on me. I have a life too you know.”

Rachel cuts in. “You have a life, since when?”

“Butt out Rach.” I shift my attention back to my sister who is currently glaring at my bestie. “Juliet, I’m sorry,” I say.

Her eyes cut to me. She shakes her head and walks away. I call out, “Juliet.” She doesn’t look back. Instead, she flips me off—and okay this time —I rightly deserve it.

I totally thought she’d take out the recycling for me again. “Dang it. Mom’s going to kill me.”

“This is why your sister is a freak,” Rachel says as we head into the school. Once we’re inside, she ditches me for Austin and I head to my destination, Adam.

A new spin on the classic smart-girl-and-bad-boy setup, this witty contemporary romance shows how easily a friendship – even one built on an elaborate lie – can become so much more.

Jenny meets Chance for the very first time when she is assigned as his partner in their Junior Oral Communications class. But after they rescue a doomed assignment with one clever lie, the whole school is suddenly convinced that Little-Miss-Really-Likes-Having-A’s and the most scandalous heartbreaker in school have been best friends forever. It’s amazing how quickly a lie can grow―especially when you really, really want it to be the truth.

With Jenny, Chance can live the normal life he’s always kind of wanted. And with Chance, Jenny can have the exciting teen experiences that TV shows and movies have always promised. Through it all, they hold on to the fact that they are “just friends.” But that might be the biggest lie of all.

Debut author Tiffany Pitcock delivers a spot-on depiction of first love and the high school rumor mill in Just Friends, chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads.

23. Writer. Reader. Sarcastic.

I was born and raised in Arkansas, which isn’t terribly exciting. I’ve wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. I used to sit in class and write stories in my notebooks, thinking that everyone did. It turns out, everyone didn’t. I love writing because it means I’m putting my thoughts, feelings, and soul out there for someone else to read – for someone else to feel. The fact that someone can read my words, and empathize with my characters – characters that wouldn’t exist with out me, that I created from my mind – is such a wonderful concept to me. I could happily write for the rest of my life as long as there was one person out there who was affected by my words.

My Review

Just Friends is the debut novel of Pitcock, and boy has she made an excellent grand entrance into the world of literature! The novel, is witty, funny, and just a general all round joy to read.

I really found myself being able to relate to Jenny. She's not the greatest at expressing her emotions and feelings, and she has a tendency to get lost in thought. I felt a little like a proud mamma bear watching her grow as a person and discovering herself throughout the book.

Chance is a pretty great character. I mean, he's mean to be this player with a reputation, but he's such a nice guy. Going into the novel, I was fully prepared for some serious slappage to be coming his way at some point, but it never happens. Like, you can try to hate him, but it just seems physically impossible... or maybe that's just Jenny perspective of him influencing me. *winks*  But the main reason I love him? He has the most messed up home life, and he doesn't channel that into making other peoples lives miserable - he does everything in his power to make sure others never have to feel the way that he does.

I loved how refreshing it was to not have Jenny having sex for the first time to be made into a big production, though I can see hoe this could be a controversial point. But like Jenny says, sometimes losing your virginity isn't a be-all and end-all for someone. In general,  sex in this novel is treated very blasé, with more weight being placed on kissing scenes. This gave me mixed feelings, and I'm still not completely sure how I feel about.

Here is a just of just some of my favourite things about this novel (without being too spoiler-y):
  • Jessa (Jenny's baby sister) calling Chance Pwetty
  • The Chance-Jenny banter
  • Jenny giving Chance a tour of her house
  • The creative back and forth of Jenny and Chance creating their fake past on the fly - though I did feel kind of bad for Kelsey, with her feeling like her friendship with Jenny was just some big joke to her and Chance 
  • Jenny getting her brother to clean up by threatening to ask out the girl he likes on his behalf
  • Jenny throwing dictionaries
  • And most of all, that even though Chance and Jenny had feeling for each other, it didn't rule the friendship
The list of things that I didn't particularly like (if I am to be super nit-picky about it):
  • The name Chance. I mean, come on! What a stupid name.
  • The story is in third person. I never feel like I get the same depth in connection with the character like this, and I feel disconnected from them.
  • It ended a chapter too soon! I still have questions, like; what did family and friends think? How did Chance's home situation work out, and how does that effect his relationship with Jenny? How did they handle the gossip mill at school? Did Drake become a bigger tool (though, I'm not sure if that is even humanly possible)?
  • ...basically I just wanted more of Jenny and Chance.
Read Just Friends. I don't really know what else to say. It is simply one of the best novels that I have read in 2017.

The Weather War
Stephanie A. Cain

Coming September 19th 2017

Pre-Order: Amazon | Kobo | B&N
Princess Azmei died for her country three years ago–or so everyone but a trusted few believed. Having survived assassination attempts, the desert, dragons, and a treacherous plot designed to destroy her entire family, Azmei has finally managed to save her kingdom.

Now she has to save the world.

Azmei travels to Amethir, whose prince she promised three years ago to marry. With her is Hawk, the man who loves her, and Yar, the Voice of Dragons. They carry a terrifying message for the king of Amethir: the gods are waking and the world is about to shake.

Prince Vistaren of Amethir has also received a frightening warning, this one from a powerful stormwitch–weather magic is failing. Patterns of storms are beginning to build outside their prescribed season. While the Stormwitch Academy officially denies any problems, there are hints of trouble yet to come.

Azmei and Vistaren know they must act. But the king refuses to listen to them and the land is beginning to tear itself apart. Facing pirate attacks, seadragon swarms, and a strange woman who uses magic in a way no stormwitch should, Vistaren and Azmei know they must find a way to set things right.

But what price is too high to save the world?

Amnesia Duet: Book 2

Coming August 18th

Purchase Book 1: Amazon
There’s freedom in remembering.

My past is a double-edged sword.

Damned if I do remember, damned if I don’t.

Remembering beyond the horrors I already have will change me. Change us.

But, what if I’m living a lie? What if everything I thought was wrong, what if who I thought I was is wrong?

If not her, then…

Who am I?

Eddie says it doesn’t matter, but deep down I’m terrified it does.

I’m trapped. Held prisoner by a past I can’t remember and a future that might not belong to me.

There’s a light though, not at the end of the tunnel… But wavering in the distance, calling to me from Rumor Island.

That light, it scares me far more than darkness. Am I brave enough to confront it?

So many questions, so few answers.

I don’t have a choice; the truth always finds a way to the surface. Finally learning who I really am will be a permanent life sentence:

Total punishment or absolute amnesty.

*Please note Amnesty contains subjects and situations that some readers may find disturbing.

Wheeler
Sara Butler Zalesky

Published July 4th 2016

Purchase: Amazon

Fate whispers to the warrior, ‘You cannot withstand the storm.’
The warrior whispers back, ‘I am the storm.’


Loren Mackenzie has spent much of her life honing her body to meet the physical challenges of being a professional cyclist in the women’s European peloton. She has also refined the control of her mind, using the power of her emotions in competition to become one of the elite cyclists in the world. After an accident at the Philadelphia International Cycling Classic, Loren must rise to the challenge of leading her team as the Women’s World Tour races across Europe, culminating with the opportunity to compete at the World Championships in Richmond, Virgina.

When a chance meeting develops into a whirlwind romance, what appears to be the perfect relationship threatens to unravel Loren’s tightly wound life. The microscope of tabloid media attention dredges up fears that her past will be unearthed; tragic secrets she has kept buried, even from those closest to her.

Can Loren face the trauma of her past and vanquish the demons within, or will betrayal and obsession ultimately defeat her?

About the Author

Website | Goodreads | Facebook | Twitter
Sara was born in the wee hours of a November night in New York City. When her family moved to a small borough in northwestern New Jersey, she had little choice but to move as well. Self-sufficiency is a tough thing for a toddler.

The dichotomy of being the middle child of three, but the only girl, was difficult, as typically no one really pays attention to a middle child. Mostly, Sara spent her time creating fanciful stories in her head when she should have been focused on other things, an issue that continues to this day.

Most of these stories have never been shared, let alone completed. This all changed in the spring of 2015, when Sara was encouraged by a friend to expand upon a short story she had accidentally emailed to him. The result is 'Wheeler’, a romantic, women's fiction/sport novel, which combines the author's romantic inclinations and her passion for cycling.

Sara currently resides in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA, with her loving husband and their son. She is a paralegal for a boutique law firm in Chester County, Pa, an avid road cyclist and indoor cycling instructor at a national chain.

Sara Talks Shakespeare and Wheeler

As was pointed out in Literary Titan’s review of Wheeler recently, there’s a lot of Shakespeare in the story. Graham Atherton was inspired by a mix of personages that are all classically trained actors of a particular ‘type.’ When I close my eyes, I can hear his voice disturbingly clear, and that voice speaks fluent Shakespeare. Thing is, it fits his personality.

Can you imagine Aaron Eckhart spouting Shakespeare? Nope. But you sure can Colin Firth. Definitely James McAvoy. And so, it is how my Muse speaks.

As you read Wheeler, your mind might conjure up a tall, svelte, aristocratic Englishman, with dark, purposely tousled hair and painfully blue eyes. But Graham is also nowhere near perfect. He has ugly feet. His eyebrows are lopsided. He can be selfish and insensitive. When wounded, he lets his anger fester until it blows up in everyone’s face. He is the ultimate White Knight. He will avoid his own problems in order to save those around him.

In his world, relationships are intense, and short lived. Film shoots, especially dramas, the actors are steeped in heavy emotions and become close quickly. It’s why a lot of relationships develop between co-stars, but it’s also why these relationships break up in just a few months. Real Life is not exciting and it takes both people to be all in to make a relationship work.

Graham is isolated even though he’s often surrounded by people. While he might not admit it to himself, he’s lonely and when he feels a connection with Loren and sees it reflected back, he’s like a Golden Retriever: he’s all over the place excited. Like his past relationships, his desire to love and be loved sometimes blinds him to the real person with whom he’s infatuated. Without something else to focus on, his world becomes Loren – or his perception of her.

Loren also has an intense personality, as well as being isolated, but for completely different reasons. She is focused on rising to the challenge of leading her team and her relationships with her teammates are close. They have to trust either completely out on the road and each member of the team has to put aside their personal desires to work together to win. If they don’t, the team falls apart.

When Loren meets Graham, she is blinded by her infatuation and gobbles up his attention like her favorite French Macarons. A part of her recognizes the pattern though, and she tries to hold back.

“I don’t know. Maybe this is good for us.”

“I don’t think it’s good,” Graham whined as he sat up more.

“I’m trying to be pragmatic here.” Loren exhaled, then faced him again. “I mean, we both feel like this all came on a little fast, right?”

“Perhaps,” he replied, his frown deepening.

She took his hand. “I’m afraid that if we keep going the way we are, it’s going to burn out. Nobody can keep up that kind of intenseness for long, and the last thing I want to be is a punchline.”
He flinched. “You would not be a punchline.”

“Yes, I would, you know that,” she countered, then turned back to the windows. “I’m not perfect, Graham. I can be moody and slightly condescending, and maybe a little controlling.” She winced. “They call me the Ice Queen for a reason. You just bring out the warm and fuzzy in me.”

His soft smile reflected hers. “I try very hard to be the perfect gentleman, host, actor, friend, but I fail, often. I can be insensitive and selfish and perhaps a wee bit of a wanker.” Graham’s smile dissolved. “I can’t give you a relationship without arguments or hurt feelings. We’re two souls with our own baggage. But what I will promise,” he raised his brow, “is to give you my absolute best in every moment. If you can give me the same promise, then I don’t see how we can go wrong, even when we’re more than five thousand miles from each other.”

See that, not one line of Shakespeare. They both recognize things went a little fast and as their long-distance relationship continues, their love letters reveal more than either could say in person.

As I said before in a previous post on my blog, I have read every word that Shakespeare wrote, more than I ever did back in high school. There are three pages of citations in the back of Wheeler. Damn you, Google for helping my Muse out like that. It could be a wee over the top sometimes but by the end of the novel, I toned it down.

The reason: I ran out of lines.

Blog Tour: It Could Happen by Mia Kerick

It Could Happen
Mia Kerick

Published June 5th 2017

Purchase: Amazon | B&N | Kobo
Three misfits, mismatched in every way—Henry Perkins, Brody Decker, and Danny Denisco—have been friends throughout high school. Now in their senior year, the boys realize their relationship is changing, that they’re falling in love. But they face opposition at every turn—from outside and from within themselves. Moving to the next level will take all the courage, understanding, and commitment they can muster. But it could happen.

Henry is a star athlete and the son of religious parents who have little concern for the future he wants. Brody is a quirky dreamer and adrenaline junkie, and Danny is an emo artist and the target of bullies. Despite their differences they’ve always had each other’s backs, and with each of them facing a new and unique set of challenges, that support is more important than ever. Is it worth risking the friendship they all depend on for the physical and romantic relationship they all desire?

In this unconventional new adult romance, three gay teens brave societal backlash—as well as the chance that they might lose their treasured friendship—to embark on a committed polyamorous relationship.

About the Author

Website | Goodreads | Facebook | Twitter
Mia Kerick is the mother of four exceptional children—all named after saints—and five nonpedigreed cats—all named after the next best thing to saints, Boston Red Sox players. Her husband of twenty years has been told by many that he has the patience of Job, but don’t ask Mia about that, as it is a sensitive subject.

Mia focuses her stories on the emotional growth of troubled young men and their relationships, and she believes that sex has a place in a love story, but not until it is firmly established as a love story. As a teen, Mia filled spiral-bound notebooks with romantic tales of tortured heroes (most of whom happened to strongly resemble lead vocalists of 1980s big-hair bands) and stuffed them under her mattress for safekeeping. She is thankful to Dreamspinner Press for providing her with an alternate place to stash her stories.

Mia is proud of her involvement with the Human Rights Campaign and cheers for each and every victory made in the name of marital equality. Her only major regret: never having taken typing or computer class in school, destining her to a life consumed with two-fingered pecking and constant prayer to the Gods of Technology.

My Review

It Could Happen is written in an interesting style, with the story coming to us in three different styles of writing; Brody's journal, a general form from Henry, and poems from Danny. It was a quirky and creative way for the story to be delivered, and was something that I greatly enjoyed.

Even though I generally loved this book, I need the two things that really let me down off my chest. Then I promise to gush about what I loved.

  1. Danny is such a useless character. He both manages to be a main character and a background character as the same time - a truly remarkable feat. I think part of the reason I view him as useless might have something to do with only getting sporatic poems from his POVs, while you get full chapters from the other boys. I mean, sure, I felt for what he went through, but his only real purpose in the novel is to serve as the catalyst for, and third member  of their threelationship. Personally, I think the novel would've been 10 times better without him in it.
  2. The writing is a little all over the place. Like bits that are meant to be from Brody's POV have a random bit from Henry's, and it's a little wordy in places which made it difficult for me to follow the story at times.

I went into It Could Happen with an open mind - kind of a requirement when it's a gay threesome. Yet, I still found the concept of three people being in a relationship a really weird concept. This may have been due to my dislike of Danny, or possibly that I'm not sure if I believe that you can love two people equally at the same time. I feel that there's always going to be one person you love more than the other, and that it would most likely vary from day to day. Plus three people kissing each other on the mouth at the same time is a super weird mental image . . . but, I guess, as the title says, it could happen.

The novel hits on some hard issues that are sadly very common at the moment. With Henry, we have  him dealing with being gay in a super religious family. Honestly, this kind of situation always makes me super sad when the parents and the rest of their church flock aren't accepting of them - especially when I thought that religion is meant to be about love and forgiveness. We have Brody coming to the realisation that he is bisexual, and learning what that means for him. Then there is the bigotry  that all three of them have to face from some people in their community. Honestly, it just makes me both very sad and very angry at the same time.

I love Brody. So much so that I wish he were a real physical person so that we could be best friends. His POV was my absolute favourite with they way he thinks and his approach to life. I mean, he's not without his issue, but what bi teenager in a gay threelationship wouldn't be? There were just so many layers to his character with his home life, friends, and trying to understand his sexuality. I really just found myself being able relate to him on so many levels. Also, he calls Henry Perkins, Perky, isn't that just the darn cutest thing ever?

It Could Happen is awkward, weird, sweet, heart wrenching, and funny. Basically everything you would expect a book about a gay threesome in high school to be. It's a book that needs to be approached with an open mind, and hits on some very topical points.
