Love & Gelato - Jenna Evans Welch

What a sweet read!!!! I'm not just saying that because I love all things Italian, including my hubby, but this story really gave me the feels! Lina and Ren are one of my favorite couples and the road to them coming to be is one that I loved taking. A book lover friend of mine asked me about this book, but noticed the length and was a little put off. I can tell you that even though it's 400 pages, the pages go so fast you don't notice how long it is. The story doesn't feel long enough once you close the last page. Oh, how I want to see what happens now that Lina knows who she is, what she is doing with her life, and dating Ren. I just can't get enough! Plus she has this relationship with Howard that I know will grow and be wonderful. These are things we want to witness as readers, you just get so invested. If you like a feel-good romance, with a touch of drama, then you need this book in your life. It's definitely going on my faves list!

The Medusa Deep by David Neil Lee

So we ended on the edge of a cliff!! I can't wait to read the third and final book in this series!
As a Hamiltonian, reading thses books are fun but it is great to know the places in the story. Ivor Wynne is now Tim Horton Field, but being from here it takes me back to the original stadium. This particular book is set more in space, yes, space! Plus the sites in Hamilton are different. I loved that too! Again, reminiscing. 
Let me tell you what I felt as a reader, someone not worried about the setting but focusing on the story and characters.
I loved the continuation of Nate and his story with these aliens. H.P. Lovecraft is also in the story, but not the guy you think of writing his tales. He is so much more than that. This author makes your imagination run wild, as wild as the scenes in the book.
Which brings me to the one down point I have. As with the first book, I feel like the reader is for a maturer audience. I don't know that some of the parts in this story will keep the attention of a teenager. That's just my opinion though.
I love this series, and hope you will read it too! Just be sure to read them in sequence. They can be read as stand alone books, but you may feel like you don't know enough about the back story if you skip past.

Finding Kyler Synopsis: 

Two fractured hearts and a forbidden love they can’t deny.

 

You shouldn’t want what you can’t have…

 

Faye Donovan has lost everything. After her parent’s tragic death, she’s whisked away from her home in Ireland when an unknown uncle surfaces as her new guardian. 

 

Dropped smack-dab into the All-American dream, Faye should feel grateful. Except living with her wealthy uncle, his fashion-empire-owning wife, and their seven screwed-up sons is quickly turning into a nightmare—especially when certain inappropriate feelings arise. 

 

Kyler Kennedy makes her head hurt and her heart race, but he’s her cousin. 

 

He’s off limits. 

 

And he’s not exactly welcoming—Kyler is ignorant, moody, and downright cruel at times—but Faye sees behind the mask he wears, recognizing a kindred spirit. 

 

Kyler has sworn off girls, yet Faye gets under his skin. The more he pushes her away, the more he’s drawn to her, but acting on those feelings risks a crap-ton of prejudice, and any whiff of scandal could damage the precious Kennedy brand. 

 

Concealing their feelings seems like the only choice.

 

But when everyone has something to hide, a secret is a very dangerous thing.

 COVER REVEAL

 

 

 

Love at First Hate, an all new enemies to lovers standalone rom com from New York Times bestselling author Denise Grover Swank and USA Today bestselling author A.R. Casella is coming August 12th and we have the fabulous cover!

 

 

 

 

The first book in a new series by Denise Grover Swank and A.R. Casella, authors of the USA Today bestselling Asheville Brewing series.

 

 

She wants his story. He wants his secrecy. Too bad he can’t stay away from her.

 

 

Molly

 

 

Blogging about bad dates used to be fun, but a girl can only take so much foolishness. So I broke up with my job.

 

 

Okay, full disclosure, I was fired. It’s a long, sordid tale, involving my sourdough starter—RIP, Fred!—and my ex-boss’s serious lack of humor.

 

 

Newly funemployed and in need of a break, I go to Asheville to dogsit for my sister…and stumble onto a scoop big enough to put my fake-dating days behind me forever.

 

 

Augusta Glower, local success story, wrote a bestseller about the self-help group she started. People think her system works, and copycat Bad Luck Clubs have sprung up nationwide. Something feels off, though, and a little poking around by yours truly suggests she stole the idea.

 

 

There’s one problem. I have to prove it, and the guy she ripped off—super-hot house flipper Caleb Reynolds—seems to…well, hate me. Which is too bad since his secrets aren’t the only thing I’d like to peel away.

 

 

* * *

 

 

Cal

 

 

Molly O’Shea is my worst nightmare.

 

 

Is she sexy as sin? Well…yeah. Does she smell like honeysuckle and trouble? No doubt. Is she determined to dig up my secrets with a backhoe? I’m pretty sure she got a two-week rental. But I’ll never talk. If the reason I started the club gets out, my whole life will implode.

 

 

So why is she so damn irresistible?

About Denise Grover Swank

 

 

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the area until she was nineteen. Then she became a nomadic gypsy, living in five cities, four states and ten houses over the course of ten years before she moved back to her roots. She speaks English and smattering of Spanish and Chinese which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period. Her hobbies include witty Facebook comments (in her own mind) and dancing in her kitchen with her children. (Quite badly if you believe her offspring.) Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to perform many unspeakable tasks. She has six children and hasn’t lost her sanity. Or so she leads you to believe.

Bridget Jones meets Sex and the City in this laugh-out-loud 90’s throwback series. Dive in today!

Dating co-workers is strictly forbidden, but at least I know who I want. My friend Candace thinks she wants the player… but the perfect guy is right in front of her!

I moved to NYC to start again. Or really, to start at all. My father calls me impulsive, my older sister calls me immature, and my mother? Well, she doesn’t call me at all now.

So when the opportunity arose to reinvent myself amid yellow cabs, crazy parties and hot banker-types? I took it. Now I’ve got the perfect job, have found the perfect girl crew, and have the BIGGEST crush on the perfect guy.

The problem? We work together. And my company has a strict no-dating policy. Not so perfect.

And then there’s my new friend Candace. She rules the boardroom and eats tentative investors for lunch. But when it comes to her dating life? She’s a disaster.

She’s set her sights on Damon, the director of sales at my new company. But Damon? He likes to play the field. Meanwhile she might be missing out on the best opportunity for romance that’s ever come her way. Gregoire is French, handsome, loaded, and very interested.

Will Candace let down her man-eater façade long enough to let him in?

And will I figure a way around my company’s antiquated no-fraternization policy?

Find out in the first book of the hilarious and charming Girlfriends of Gotham series from USA Today bestselling author Delancey Stewart.

He’s my brother’s best friend.

 

The hot single dad next door.

 

And one accidental sext later, my massive crush on him is no longer a secret.



It’s my own damn fault. I’m thirty years old, for heaven’s sake. I’m a kindergarten teacher and a (reasonably) responsible adult. I should know better than to get tipsy and draft a fake text listing all the dirty things I wish Officer Cole Mitchell would do to me.

 

I wasn’t supposed to hit send.  

 

He wasn’t supposed to see it. 

 

And he definitely wasn’t supposed to text back telling me to go on . . . 

 

Because after that, things escalate quickly.

 

Cole is everything I’ve ever wanted. He’s sexy and protective. A devoted father to his little girl. A dedicated cop the whole town adores. The kind of guy you can trust to keep his hands to himself, even when you’re desperately hoping he won’t. 

 

I’m not the girl he thought he’d end up with, but after all this time, I might finally get the chance to say the words I’ve always dreamed of . . . make me yours.

Award Winning Author Billie Dale sends you spiraling into a world of thrills, chills, secrets and lies with this suspenseful standalone psychological mind twister.

 

Six months ago Coralyne James was found beaten and clinging to life alongside a desolate country road. Left with a rare form of amnesia, she now struggles through debilitating migraines, and nightmarish visions of a life she can’t recall.

During a routine exam, Coralyne meets Dr. Maxwell Hough who is taking the medical world by storm with his breakthrough neurological treatments. Fascinated by Coralyne’s maladies, Dr. Hough invites her to be a part of a medical trial held at his lab in Valdez, Alaska. Praying three months trapped in the deep snow surrounding Ravyn Manor will hold the key to easing her pain, Coralyne agrees.

For reasons, she can’t explain, walking the halls of the manor seems to cause ghostly recollections to claw at the edges of her mind. It’s as if they are leading her to... something. Following their haunting trail, she stumbles onto a series of recordings that reveal a horrifying truth about the respected doctor.

As her blocked memories finally break free, Coralyne is crippled by the fear she’ll never escape the horrors of the Ravyn’s nest.

FREEBIE ALERT: SCORING THE KEEPER'S SISTER (MR. MATCH BOOK) BY DELANCEY STEWART

Reblogged from Hopeless Romantic:

 

 

 

Scoring the Keeper’s Sister, a flirty and hilarious enemies to lovers standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Delancey Stewart, is ZERO PENNIES for a limited time only!

PR rep Erica tries out the respected Mr. Match service to find the one ... but what happens when "the one" turns out to be the one guy she absolutely can't stand? 

When my boyfriend, Andrew-the-hand-model, dumped me, my twin brother suggested I try San Diego’s hottest dating app, Mr. Match.

I figured I couldn’t do worse than a guy who wore gloves all the time. (And I do mean ALL the time.)

But when the site matched me with my biggest PR nightmare and nemesis, Fernando “the Fire” Fuerte, a guy who has more dates than a calendar, I knew Mr. Match was probably high. Fernando Fuerte was a total player. In every sense of the word. He’s star forward for the Sharks, the pro soccer team where I handled PR. Fuerte’s tabloid shenanigans turned my stomach and regularly challenged my ability to keep the Sharks organization looking respectable in the public eye.

My brother Trace—Fuerte’s best friend and keeper for the Sharks—laughed at me when I told him who I’d been matched with. He laughed. I might take myself a bit seriously, but I don't like being laughed at. Especially not by a guy who got arrested once for getting stuck in a fast food drive through window.

Fernando Fuerte will go out with me if I decide that’s what I want. And when Trace makes me a bet that I can’t get him to ask me out? A bet that involves very fancy cheese?

The problem is that the closer I get to Fuerte, the more I start to see that he’s actually a good guy. And the closer I get to becoming just another girl in his long line of dates.

If I fall for him, can I win more than just the ridiculous cheese bet I made with my brother? Can I actually win Fuerte’s love?

Scoring with the Keeper’s Sister is a hilariously fun romantic comedy featuring an annoyingly hot pro soccer player, a gloriously silly goalie as his best friend, a bet about Wensleydale cheese, and the matchmaking site everyone is talking about. It’s part of a lighthearted and fun series, but it stands alone with no cheating or cliffhangers.

Freebie inside!!

I’ve loved him as long as I can remember.

The gangly boy with big brown eyes and unruly hair who grew up into an intoxicating man. He wears scruff like he invented it and ambles with a swagger that makes panties drop.

Killian Shepard.

Shep.

We grew up together. We played Ghost in the Graveyard. Had our own rock band. It didn’t matter that he was five years older than me. It didn’t matter that he looked at me as a kid sister even as I grew into woman. It didn’t even matter when he left me behind to go to college and start his adult life.

He’d be back.

He was always meant to be mine.

He came back, all right. But instead of smelling of promises, he stunk of betrayal. And he destroyed me—us—the day he married my sister instead of me.

So I did the only thing a girl like me in my position could do.

I got my revenge.

I married his brother, Kael.

Now we’re one big happy f*cking family.

Make a deal with the devil and you might get what you want, but will it be what you need?

 

Jennifer Sylvester wants one thing, and that one thing is NOT to be Tennessee’s reigning Banana Cake Queen. Ever the perpetual good girl and obedient daughter, Jennifer is buckling under the weight of her social media celebrity, her mother’s ambitions, and her father’s puritanical mandates. Jennifer is officially desperate. 

 

And desperate times call for Cletus Winston.

 

Cletus Winston is a puzzle wrapped in a mystery covered in conundrum sauce, and now he’s in a pickle. Despite being convinced of his own omniscience, extortion by the exalted Banana Cake Queen of Green Valley has taken him completely by surprise. So... what’s a maniacal mastermind to do? 

 

Likely, the last thing you expect. 

 

Beard Science is book #1 in the Solving for Pie Series: Cletus and Jenn Mysteries and book #3 in the Winston Brothers series. Each book is a standalone, full length (110k words), contemporary romantic comedy novel, and follows the romantic exploits and adventures of one of the six Winston Brothers.

Sadie O'Connor had successfully avoided Gage Montgomery for years. Hell, she was practically a ninja at avoiding him. And if it weren't for a stray dog, some barbed wire, and the giant gash across her left ass cheek (long story), she might've been able to go on avoiding him. But now Gage--the sexiest, grumpiest jerk she's ever laid eyes on--is right here, within reach. And it's not long before her heart's ready to hurl itself at him. Again. Too bad she can't afford to trust her heart. Not after what happened the last time...

 

 

Gage certainly wasn't expecting to come face-to-face--or, face-to-ass, he supposed--with Sadie again, either. Their smokin' physical chemistry had been complicated when they first met. (Mostly because she'd been engaged to his cousin at the time. But that's another story...) Now Gage knows exactly what he wants, and that's Sadie--in his arms, in his bed, forever. All he has to do is convince the woman of his dreams to un-friend zone him once and for all...

 

 

But before Gage and Sadie can figure out how to stow their emotional baggage and move forward together, they have to deal with a crazy pregnant lady, Gage's even crazier family, and the re-appearance of a particularly pesky ghost from Sadie's past.

 

 

Looks like things might get even more complicated this time around...

 

 

You Wrecked Me is book 2 in the You Complicate Me series but can be read as a standalone. Book 3, You Ruined Me, is also now available. Not intended for anyone who doesn't like characters who cuss, tons of nerdy pop culture references, and all manner of familial silliness. For the rest of you, happy reading!

The Past And Other Things That Should Stay Buried - Shaun David Hutchinson

— feeling big smile
The Past and Other Things that Should Stay Buried - Shaun David Hutchinson
What an incredible story of friendship and love.
I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this book. Not the biggest ghost story/zombie lover, but let me tell you how well this story was written. You know when you're younger, and you get a boyfriend or girlfriend and they become your world. Your friends always take a back seat, so-to-speak. It always happens, not purposely, but still.  Now imagine if that friend of yours died suddenly. You'd be so stunned at how to deal, so many unsaid things.
Well, this story does that with an unusual twist. 
That twist actually turned out to be good too! I devoured this book, 'cause I had to know what was going to happen. Would they get a resolution? 
Every question was answered and it is now one of my favorites from this author!
On a side note, I had no idea I was reading a LGBTQ book during Pride month and that made me smile too! Love Is Love!
