Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5 

Secrets and surprises at the beach party!

It has been eight months since our Carolina Chasers met. Now they are back for a reunion and spring break in Daytona! This is the kick off to Parker and Becca's story...

Becca and Parker decided to go with the long distance relationship while Chase and Ashlynn are still joined at the hip remotely but seeing other people. This week long vacation is the first time they've seen each other since the past summer, with the exception of the Valentine's day surprise. Now they each have more shrouded surprises up their sleeves...

Favorite passage: “I’ve loved you I think since the moment I met your cocky, arrogant ass on the beach. If I remember correctly, you told me to remember your name because I’d be screaming it for all of Myrtle Beach to hear me. I knew right then and there I wanted to get you into my bed. But I had no idea in the process you’d wiggle your way into my heart— all I know is I’m so happy you did.”

*Books in series can be read as standalones*

Chase Kenzington loves two things: fast cars and women. At twenty-two, he has the entire world at his feet. With his father being Hank Kenzington, who is one of the best drivers in the Sprint Cup Series and his grandfather, Arnold Kenzington, a legend in Nascar, he's used to getting whatever he wants when he wants it. 

When he and his friends decide to spend the summer at his father’s beach house in Myrtle Beach, he expects to spend it throwing parties on the beach and finding hot girls to hook up with. The last thing on his mind is finding a girl who’ll make him re-think everything. 

Ashlynn Myers, along with a few sorority sisters, is heading to Myrtle Beach for four weeks of fun in the sun. The last thing she expects is to meet a guy while on vacation who will make her fall fast and hard before she even knows what hit her. When she meets Chase the chemistry between them is undeniable. The thing about summer and summer romances is that they both come with expiration dates. After summer ends you have to part ways and go back to your everyday lives. 

What do you do when you think you’ve found your soulmate but you’re separated by hundreds of miles? Will Ashlynn and Chase be able to walk away from their summer fling and never look back, pretending that what they had for one month over the summer was nothing more than a hot summer hook-up?

“Let me do some research, before you do anything, Sandy. I want to make sure no more laws are broken, okay?” He grabbed her upper arms and held her away so he could give her the eye-to-eye stare down. ”Promise me you won’t dive into this head first. Let’s do this the right way. Totally clean, okay?”

Sandy’s bottom lip popped out a little. But she nodded her head. Like dad always said, if a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing right. She could be patient and let Alardo find them a good solid loophole.

Drama. Lies. Sex.
Welcome to Palm South University.
The weather isn’t the only thing heating up in South Florida. At a school where fraternities and sororities don’t exactly play by the rules, relationships are bound to be tested. Parties and sex are definitely key ingredients in the Palm South recipe, but what happens when family issues, secret lives, and unrequited love get tossed in the mix?
Follow Cassie, Bear, Jess, Skyler, Erin, Ashlei, and Adam as they tackle college at a small, private beach town university. Written in television drama form, each episode of this serial will pull you deeper and deeper into the world of PSU.
Where the sun is hot and the clothes are scarce, anything can happen.

Kandi knows that some of you, especially those who have read Black Number Four, probably have a ton of questions about PSU. That's why she's chatting *LIVE* with fans tonight (6/16) on Periscope and Twitter! Tune in at 8PM EST.
Sighing, I take my place in the same barstool as before and Jarrett slides a fifth drink my way.
I hold up my hands. “I should probably say no this time. It’s almost closing time and I need to drive.”
“Not necessarily,” he offers. I eye him curiously and the corner of his mouth pulls up mischievously. He finishes wiping down a glass and hangs it above his head before leaning across the bar, his minty breath tickling my drunken senses. “You’ve been trying all night to get with that douchebag when I could have told you from the beginning that he wasn’t available. And now, you’re left with an ache between your legs that you don’t want to take care of on your own. So yes, you could drive home, get up and go to work tomorrow and just try again another night. Or,” he pauses, licking his bottom lip and dragging his teeth across the top as his eyes fall to my mouth. “You could give me your keys, jump in my truck, and let me take you back to my place so I can cure you of your current situation.”
Oh hell to the fucking yes.

Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa with her husband. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.
Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).
When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.

Words Left Unsaid by Missy Johnson *~*~*~*~*~* Release Blitz, Giveaway & Review

Title: Words Left Unsaid
Author: Missy Johnson
 Release Date: June 15, 2015


At 8:28 I was the girl who had everything.

At 8:29 my whole world fell apart.

A split second can change your life. I learned this the hard way. I wasn't ready to let him go. Even when the terms "vegetative state" and "will never recover" were thrown around I held onto hope. I mean, miracles happen, right?

We deserved our happy ending.

Three years later and I'm still hoping. In my heart I know I have to let him go but how can I? He's the only man I've ever loved. He's my soul mate. My life.

Then I meet Max. He's everything Aiden isn't and as much as I'm trying to fight my feelings, I'm losing. I don't want to fight anymore.

I need to live my life.

I need to move on.

But in order to move forward I need to let go of the past.

Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5 

Be prepared for tears.... but I loved it!!

I always read and set myself up as the main character. It is usually fun and carefree, but this story reminds me of all we have to lose. We should all live each day to the fullest. And now a bit about the story...

Aiden and Kiara are engaged and living a happy life with their 2 year old daughter, Tilly. Until one minute Aiden is there and the next he is in a coma. Three years later there is no hope for recovery, but Aiden's parents won't give up hope. Ellie, Kiara's sister, can't bear to see her sister just surviving, she wants her to live! When Kiara gets set up on a blind date behind her back, things start to look up, until they don't anymore... Can she find happiness?

Favorite passages:
- “If she’s half as amazing as you, then we’ve done our job right.”
- How can she go from flat-out tantrum mode to happy little girl in less than a minute? Oh, right: she’s five.

Omega (Omega #1) by Lizzy Ford *~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Review & Giveaway


Omega (Omega #1) by Lizzy Ford
Review by Jeannette
Stars: 5 

First off let me start by saying that this is the first Lizzy Ford book I've ever read, and I am so happy I've decided to read it. 
(Some spoilers) 
Omega is about a teenage girl named Alessandra who is born special, but does not know it until things start to go sour. She is the oracle. She is the key to setting things straight in the world again after the Gods took over. Alessandra can't trust anyone either because everyone has a secret motivation or isn't telling her the truth, and I mean everyone!
My favorite character is Mismatch/Adonis. You want to hate him when you first meet him, but that's impossible. He's a Grotesque, which is unique in a world of Gods and Goddesses.
The story is beautifully written. The way Lizzy gives you details about Alessandra's world is incredible. There's a major cliffhanger in the end, but this is a story that needs it. The ending was my favorite part. I actually wanted to cry with her, when she was forced to kill all those people. I felt like I was losing apart of me, and then realized that it was just a story lol.

Favorite Quote:
He slid an arm around me and pulled me into his hard body. My breath caught in my throat. Staring at his chest, I ordered my face not to turn pink.
"Not used to men touching you. He was amused.
"Stop it. Fly me home, you stupid oversized bat."

I hope to get an ARC copy of the next book. I can't wait to find out what happens.

A Pound of Flesh (A Pound of Flesh #1) by Sophie Jackson ~*~*~*~*~ Book Review

Find it online at:
Amazon US  ~~  B&N


A Pound of Flesh (A Pound of Flesh #1) by Sophie Jackson
Review by Wennie Conedy
Stars: 5 

The moment I started reading A Pound of Flesh, I had a very hard time putting this book down. I was immediately pulled into the story from the first paragraphs of the prologue. I knew then that this story would be something I would remember for a long time. There were instances when I truly wished that real life had a pause button, so I could continue to read Carter and Kat’s story uninterrupted.

Wes Carter and Kat Lane shared a violent past which left them both scarred, albeit in two different ways. Haunted by the vision of her father’s violent death, Kat decided to honor her promise to him and face her fears by signing up as a tutor at a New York penitentiary, Arthur Kill. When Wes Carter walks into her classroom, she faced the biggest challenge of her teaching career. Wes Carter, with his tattoos, sullen attitude, fiery and short temper was the last person she should be teaching, much less helping. But the undeniable attraction they have for each other leaves her no choice but to act and help him.

As they slowly learn to get to know each other, Wes is wrecked when he finds out who Kat Lane truly is and what she means to him. And when Kat discovers Carter’s involvement on the night of her father’s death, will she stay and forgive him? Or will she run and never see him again?

Both Carter and Kat have a lot going against them – stature, class, family, friends, background, and education. There are a lot of forces pulling them apart, the system, her family, his family, and his friends. There is so much they go through to be together, there are so many secrets that must be revealed and told before they can move forward. There is so much passion and heat between these two characters that this reader could not help but cheer them on and hope that they find their happily ever after.

Sophie Jackson has created two characters who will be very hard to forget. Their story remained me with me and days after I finished the book, I continued to feel the energy and passion of Kat and Carter around me.

A Pound of Flesh is a love story, but more than that, I see it as a story of redemption, hope, salvation, and survival. It is a story of a daughter’s promise, a friend’s loyalty, and a balancing of scales.

I am thrilled for Sophie Jackson as this is a brilliant debut of her writing career. I am sure you will agree, Carter and Kat’s love story is one that will be hard to forget.

** Many thanks to Gallery Books for providing an advanced copy for review.

Drowning Sandy by Sarah Daley from the Summer Hearts Anthology ~*~*~*~ Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway


Today we are going to focus on the next book in the compilation. 
Check it out!

Drowning Sandy:
The water is calling...
and Sandy can no longer resist the urge to unleash her mermaid form. But a simple swim in Lake Ontario ends when she discovers the truth of her own banishment. When long time crush, Alardo, seems to shift in a direction she never dreamed possible, Sandy must make a choice — mermaid or human? Once she chooses, she can never go back. 

Sandy rolled her eyes. He talked tough and proud, but she could still see the self-doubt under the surface. He was still the same old dork, and still pining for Shelly who never gave a flip for him. “Aren’t you going to get in trouble for talking to me?” she asked, remembering why she was hiding in her grandparents’ house again.
“I’m a Ritno. I dare them.” He puffed out his chest, making the dark green band stretch to it’s max, though he did quickly look off to the side to check that no one was around. “By the way. What are you doing here?”

Now about the crazy lady behind this book!

Main character casting

Sandy Antori: Spunky, and yet quick to want to please others, she finds herself battling her inner wants and desires with the difficult decisions being an adult requires of her. Picking an actress to play Sandy is tough. When I wrote this book, I actually envisioned her looking like a friend of mine’s sister. The next best second would have to be Shailene Woodley. Since, Shelly is Sandy’s twin, Shailene would have her work cut out for her not only being a mermaid, but being a twin too!

Alardo Ritno: Not one to be pushed around either, poor Alardo has been nursing his secret crush for Sandy from when they were kids just learning to swim. Little does he know that, Sandy had jumped to the conclusion that he was completely hung up on her twin, Shelly. Jensen Ackles is PERFECT!!! Just needs the short cropped hair, and copper and gold scales… YUM!
