$25 GIVEAWAY and REVIEW: The Duality Principle by Rebecca Grace Allen

$25 GIVEAWAY and REVIEW: The Duality Principle by Rebecca Grace Allen

REVIEW The Duality Principle was a quick, fun, sexy read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Connor is bad boy pretending to be good and Gabby is a nerd girl with a rebellious streak. The two of them meet and make assumptions about each other that throws off the flow of their newly developing relationship. I thought the story was well-written and well-edited. I enjoyed it. It wasn’t ground-breaking, but it was a story I wanted to keep reading until the end. The sexy times were fun and hot and Connor’s hidden alpha-male tendencies added the perfect balance to his computer coding day-job persona. There isn’t a lot of theme going on in this little novella, but the takeaway for me was more than the old ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ type stuff. It was more about letting yourself be whoever it is you want to be, both inside and… Read more »

BLOG TOUR EXCERPT: The Reason I Stay by Patty Maximini

BLOG TOUR EXCERPT: The Reason I Stay by Patty Maximini

WELCOME  to my stop on The Reason I Stay by Patty Maximini blog tour. Enjoy the excerpt! “Hey there,” a chipper voice with a very noticeable drawl sounds to my right. Lifting my head to acknowledge the source of the voice, through my peripheral vision I see a narrow waist covered in navy fabric and a hand with purple nail polish and a girly skull ring, but I don’t bother to look at her further. I just can’t. I know she’ll be some nice southern-hospitality enthusiast trying to start a conversation, and welcome me to this town. Being one hundred percent sure that I’ll lose it if I’m subjected to that I bend my elbows, anchor them on the table and burry my head in my palms. “Welcome to The Jukebox. I’m Lexie.” I roll my eyes at her stupid name. Of course you’re a Lexie. “Excuse me, do you… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and GUEST POST: Day Zero by Summer Lane

GIVEAWAY and GUEST POST: Day Zero by Summer Lane

Inspiration for Day Zero I came up with the title for Day Zero shortly after I finished the third or fourth chapter of the book. The spot on the earth’s surface that is closest to where a detonation takes place is often called Ground Zero. It is, in fact, the aftermath of a disastrous event. The storyline of my novel certainly fit that description, so I called Elle’s story Day Zero, because society finds itself back at the drawing board after an electromagnetic pulse disables the technological infrastructure of the entire country. I visited Santa Monica, Hollywood and the greater Los Angeles area when I was in high school. I was working as a writer in high school, although I had yet to publish a novel. I always thought Los Angeles would be a fascinating place to set a post-apocalyptic novel. With Day Zero I was able to do so…. Read more »

KINDLE GIVEAWAY and REIVEW: Charming by Krystal Wade

KINDLE GIVEAWAY and REIVEW: Charming by Krystal Wade

REVIEW – CHARMING by Krystal Wade I decided to ask to be part of the Charming tour because I was intrigued by the cover, which looked a little bit horror to me, and the fact that it was listed as a YA Thriller. I love thrillers but I have to admit, I have not really read too many that were young adult. Haley Tremaine is a sixteen year old with big problems. She was once rich, now she’s poor. She was once part of a loving and happy family. Now she’s treated like the maid. Her mother is dead, her father is an alcoholic, and he abuses her. Talk about having the deck stacked against you. But that’s OK. I like a heroine who can juggle lots of complicated problems. Haley keeps quiet about the abuse for many reasons. She’s embarrassed. She feels guilty. But mostly, she keeps quiet because… Read more »

$25 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Scratch by Rhonda Helms

EXCERPT “When I was a kid I would stay in the pool for hours until I wrinkled,” Daniel said. Somehow while we treaded water he’d moved closer to me, and I could feel the moving water beneath the surface pulsing against my own legs. “In fact, in elementary school I wanted to be an Olympic diver. I had no fear.” “I can just imagine.” A tiny Daniel, diving into the pool, his scrawny body plunging the surface as he practiced relentlessly. “What made you change your mind?” “I look terrible in Speedos.” His grin widened and he gave a cheeky laugh. I laughed in response. “I used to pretend I was a mermaid. I’d sit on the bottom of the pool and press my legs together and make believe they were a tail.” How many hours my sister and I had lived in our neighborhood’s pool. She’d refused to go… Read more »
