Jane Pearson needs a job and daring war reporter Griffin Lowell needs someone to insist he get to work on his memoir. His literary agent hired the bookish blonde and while Griffin would prefer to hide from his painful memories in drunken beach parties and busty bikini girls, prim and proper Jane is becoming more sultry and sexy—to his eyes—by the day. Maybe she’s the distraction he needs…

But Jane has a way of getting what she wants, and soon he’s sharing secrets and then they are trading sizzling kisses. And then…summer nights, a moonlit beach, the sound of waves crashing on the sand, all come together to heal what’s broken and maybe create something entirely new and almost impossible to believe can come true—a happy-ever-after.

**This is a previously published STANDALONE romance.

By Clarisse David

Age category: Young Adult, New Adult
Release Date: October 16, 2017

Blurb:
No promises. No expectations. Just one night on a paradise island that could mean everything.

Nineteen-year-old Cam has a metric ton of emotional baggage and is in no mood to unload them on anyone. After her parents’ marriage imploded, stress-free is the only way she wants her life to be. And what could be more freeing than spending the summer on Boracay? Absolutely nothing… until she bumps heads with Hunter, the hot drummer who screams incoming heartbreak from a mile away.

Hunter has grand plans, none of which include angry-at-the-world Cam, best friend to the girl he always thought he’d end up with. He likes his life steady, thank you very much. But steady has now become synonymous with boring. His grand plans don’t seem so grand anymore. So when Cam comes home to Iloilo City and reaches out to him, he surprises himself when the one answer he can think of is… yes. Definitely yes.

Sometimes, complications are the only things that make sense.

Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel – 5/5 Stars

IMG_2372.jpg

Title: Black Bird of the Gallows
Author: Meg Kassel
Category: Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance
Published: September 5, 2017
My Rating: 5 Stars +

A simple but forgotten truth: Where harbingers of death appear, the morgues will soon be full.

Angie Dovage can tell there’s more to Reece Fernandez than just the tall, brooding athlete who has her classmates swooning, but she can’t imagine his presence signals a tragedy that will devastate her small town. When something supernatural tries to attack her, Angie is thrown into a battle between good and evil she never saw coming. Right in the center of it is Reece—and he’s not human.

What’s more, she knows something most don’t. That the secrets her town holds could kill them all. But that’s only half as dangerous as falling in love with a harbinger of death.


“Fly with me, baby, there’s nothing to fear. Stay with me today, before you have to go. Be with me, baby, no need to hide. In the light of the new day, the fire’s burning low. Can’t stop searching, for some spark of hope. Find your way to dry land, the sea will drag me down. Swimming to the far shore, to the lonely underground. You’ll be gone before I’ve drowned. Before I ever make a sound, I’ll never make a sound…”


I. Loved. This. Book.
To say this book was good is like saying that Florida is warm in the summer. Florida is dang hot in the summer, and this book is dang awesome!!!

I loved the characters. Especially the two main characters, Angie and Reece, and yes I really liked their relationship. A lot of people compared the romance to Twilight’s instalove. So, yes, if you don’t like that kind of thing you might not enjoy the romance. I, however, loved the romance in Twilight (it’s the only thing I like about Twilight) and I loved watching this romance develop.

But, even if you don’t like the romance….this book is SO MUCH MORE!!! The crows, the folklore of harbingers of death, the bees (I’m still trying to sort that out in my head, and hope with further Books on the series to understand…why bees) and very old curses. There lots of action/adventure, survival stuff. This book is filled with a lot!!! I don’t want to give away too much, so that’s why I’m being vague, but I want you to know this isn’t just a romance book, and it’s definitely NOT BORING!!!

If you like Young Adult, Paranormal, Folklore, Romance, Action/Adventure Survival stuff…then give this book a try. I really think you’ll like it. I gave it 5/5 Stars.

My Review

I love this series, it is my favorite!
It starts out a little bit dystopian, but is really a lot of sci-fi (but not too heavy on the science), with aliens and romance, oh yeah! and also it’s Young Adult. The writing is fantastic, in my opinion! Wonderful world development (there are many worlds to explore too!), in-depth character development and everything just flowed in a way that I had trouble putting it down!! The characters were really great…some were a little mysterious at first, some were a little hard to like at first, but as all is revealed and as the characters grew you really became invested. I loved Sadie, she was an amazing girl. She didn’t think she was at the beginning of the series, but she grows and she meets Logan who shows her a side of herself she did not know. Logan makes her feel really special.

I love all of the characters in this series so much, but especially Sadie and Logan.❤️

The action in this series was very intense and had you not wanting to put down the book. That’s the beauty of this set, you don’t have to wait for the next book to come out, or go and purchase it! Because when these books end, you will NEED the next book ASAP!!!!

Siobhan Davis writes a wonderful series where you visit different worlds, explore different technologies and meet new alien species and witness a romance like no other. This is a series that you won’t want to miss!

Racer, an all-new standalone in the Real Series from New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans is LIVE!

Racer Amazon.jpg

A bad boy with something to prove.

A woman with a mission.

The race of their lives.

The love of a lifetime.

I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.

He’s the fastest, fiercest driver around.

Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep…

but his smile sends me to my knees.

The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He’s secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss….

This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I’m supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse.

He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.

WONDERFUL_TEASER1.jpg

Meg Alexander has temporarily—and reluctantly—returned to her home of Crescent Cove, California. Last time she’d been on this beach she’d called herself Starr and saw only bright skies ahead. Then tragedy struck and she’d run from all that was familiar, the happy-go-lucky girl becoming a sadder-but-wiser woman. Now family obligations have brought her back and she’s determined to make it through the month with grit and grace. She only falters when one day she looks up—and loses her breath.

Caleb McCall has never forgotten the summer he spent at Crescent Cove and the beautiful girl who’d laughed and played there. Eager for a break from his workaholic ways, he rents one of the surfside bungalows and discovers his landlady is none other than the one woman who has never faded from his memory. Clearly, though, Meg is wary and even their instant chemistry doesn’t let down her guard. But Caleb has learned there’s no time like the present to grab the opportunities life presents, so he’s willing to fight for what he wants…the total surrender of Meg’s heart.

Romantic Couple Kissing on the Beach at Sunset

My Review

I loved this novella! Of course, I’m not surprised. I really have fallen in love with Christie Ridgway’s writing since I read “The Secret” *sigh* This woman can really write romance.

Almost wonderful starts out with a very sad, hardened woman…Meg. Ten years before the love of her life died and she ran away from the life she knew, changed her name from Starr to Meg and built walls around her heart, never to be hurt again. So now, ten years later, because her family needs her, she returns home to Crescent Cove. This is where she meets Caleb. Watching him try to help her heal, no matter how much she turned away was so moving. The belief in fate is questioned. Caleb truly believes they were meant to be together, that it is what brought him there. I’m trying not to say too much. But Caleb is a true romantic at heart. Plus he is sexy as hell. Oh! Then there is Bitzer, I can’t forget Bitzer!!! Caleb’s dog, who plays a very big role in this story. I loved Bitzer.

There is quite a lot to this little 97 page novella. It was beautiful, touching and at times had me laughing out loud. I’m really looking forward to reading the rest of this series!!
