Holiday Wishes and 2015 Reads

This year has been unforgettable in so many ways. I started the year publishing Restoring Us, and along followed three more books. It was a year where dreams became reality, and I was blessed to meet so many wonderful people along the way. I thank you all for your love and support; for your positive vibes and cheers along the way. It truly has been an honor connecting with you all and I hope to continue building friendships throughout 2016.

During this time of celebration, I want to wish you all a very happy holiday season. I hope you spend time with loved ones and reconnect with old friends. I also hope you get to curl up with a great book and enjoy some “you” time. I read some amazing novels this year. Here are a few recs for you to enjoy this holiday season:

  • Frenched by Melanie Harlow {And it’s FREE!} Really, I loved all the books in this series.
  •  Take Me Series by K.A. Linde: Grant McDermott. That’s all I need to say. Who doesn’t love a hot rockstar? K.A. Linde never disappoints and this series was no different. I binge read both books and to this day still think about them.
  • Bared to You by Sylvia Day: I know I’m late to this party, but I wasn’t sure if I was ready for the Gideon experience. I so was! Gideon quickly became one of my top book boyfriends. I cannot wait for the final book in this series. It may call for a reread.
  • Wanted by Kelly Elliott {Also FREE!} It’s no secret I have a weakness for cowboys. Kelly writes AMAZING cowboys. So much so, I think I have a chance of running into Gunner one day. And falling madly in love with each other. No? Don’t ruin my fantasy. This entire series was great actually. The points of view were really unique, and it was the first {and only} time I have read a series where they go interlocking plots. Really cool!
  • Thoughtful by SC Stephens: I can’t leave out my #1 book boyfriend. Kellan Kyle is perfect. Now add his POV, and my heart went out to him. I was excited to read this book, but even more to understand his side of the story.

I read a lot more amazing books this past year, but I wanted to share a few fab reads. You can always check out my Goodreads page for my reads and reviews.

Fab Cowboy Recommendations! Jake and Gabe by Susan Fisher-Davis

I know, I know.. I’ve been MIA. I apologize for that. Between writing and getting ready for the release of Resisting You, I’ve been busy. I have however squeezed in time to read some great books! Everyone knows I love a hot cowboy, so what better than a series full of cowboys?! NOTHING! You make be telling yourselves.. Can she stop babbling and tell me about these cowboys already?! Okay, here it goes!

I connected with Susan Fisher-Davis via social media and kept reading snippets of her books and seeing her covers. HOT is all I can say. So I one-clicked Jake (the 1st in the Men of Clifton Montana Series). I FELL IN LOVE. Seriously. I wanted to keep Jake all to myself. Then there’s Gabe, Jake’s brother, (book 2 in the series). I had to one-click him too. Again, I wanted him all for myself. Wyatt is the third brother (his book comes out in the summer and I cannot wait!).

So, while I’ve been writing and working hard on releasing and getting new books, I’ve been sleeping with cowboys that make me swoon big time.

Let me start with Jake. Here are my thoughts about it:

This book was an amazing read. Fast paced and sexy, I was captivated from the beginning. I love cowboys, so I knew I just had to meet Jake and he did not disappoint.

Fisher does a fantastic job creating scenes, emotions, and even suspense. I loved how Becca and Jake’s relationship developed. Their attraction was palpable from the beginning, and it was fun to read how their stubbornness tried to prevent anything from happening between them.

Once they gave in to their true feelings, these two were a hot couple perfect for each other. Jake’s protectiveness and care for Becca when danger presents itself was heartwarming.

The secondary characters were amazing as well, and those Stone brothers are hot. I loved how they’re all involved and developed throughout the story. Excited to continue reading this series and learning more about the characters.
This book is a definite must read! Now can I move to Montana and find myself a cowboy??

So like I said, after I finished Jake I hd a huge book hangover (I may have been moping a bit but don’t tell anyone I said that). I thought, who better to help me move one than Jake’s sexy middle brother? Enter Gabe.

What can I say? I’m a sucker for these Stone brothers. Gabe and Emma’s story is full of love, doubt, and hope. Susan brings us another hot and swoon-worthy book boyfriend in Gabe and I loved it! Although their relationship started kind of backwards, you quickly see that Gabe and Emma are so meant to be together. You have humor mixed with heart warming situations that make you wish you had a hot cowboy by your side.

I truly loved reading as their love blossomed and Emma’s confidence built throughout the story. This was a fun read with mystery and some suspense. Overall, this is a fabulous read with a hot hero and a sassy, sometimes timid heroine.

So it’s only natural that I’m impatiently waiting on Wyatt. The Stone brothers are sexy and protective. You can’t help but fall in love. Of course, Susan doesn’t stop the series at just them. Brody will also have a book coming out soon. He’s not a Stone brother, but when you read Gabe you’ll learn more about Brody and I’m excited to read his story!

I have found a new one-click author I truly enjoy reading and I’m looking forward to reading her other series, Bad Boys of Dry River, Wyoming. The first book is Lucas, and of course, it’s another cowboy series I’m sure won’t disappoint. Make sure to grab your copies today!

SMOLDERED BY RACHEL BLAUFELD- HAPPY RELEASE DAY!

HAPPY RELEASE DAY RACHEL BLAUFELD!!! I am so happy and excited for my friend and fellow author, Rachel Blaufeld on the release of her second novel, Smoldered.

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of Smoldered, and I loved every second of it! Smoldered is Asher’s story. We first meet (and fall in love) with Asher in the first book of the series, Electrified.

Asher is a strong, caring, and an emotionally troubled soul. He has this need to care for women and keep them safe. However, under the jeans, boots, and unbreakable facade, is a gentle and caring man in need of love. One night he comes across an old friend, another woman he feels the need to protect, but old feelings resurface and bring about deeper emotions.

I loved reading Asher and Natalie’s story. It’s real, emotional, and speaks levels of truth about life and its struggles. Rachel has done an amazing job of weaving the story, tying in from the first book and characters, and continuing to expand Asher and Natalie’s story along the way. There is also mystery and and OH MY GOD moment you just can’t help but love. This is an emotion-filled read that will keep you wanting more.

You will find yourself rooting for these characters throughout the entire book, wishing and hoping they find a way to their true happiness and allow themselves the chance to love and be loved. It gets FIVE SMOLDERING STARS from me!

Wicked Wednesday Recommendation~ The Girl on the Half Shell

I know I’ve been a bit MIA lately.. sorry! Life’s gotten a little crazy with trying to finish up Restoring Us, but I have made some time to read.

Last week I read The Girl on the Half Shell by Susan Ward, and it stole my heart. This book is a definite must read and a five star book for me.

I don’t know where to begin. I have been trying to find the perfect words to describe this book. I don’t think any words I use will do it justice. I absolutely loved this book. It’s brilliant, beautiful, raw.

Susan Ward did an amazing job with this book. Her writing is beautiful, and she creates a story that is honest. This book is a treasure that went straight to my heart. The characters are developed perfectly. You clearly see their emotions, feel their pain and love. They have secrets and troubles they try to escape.

Chrissie is a beautiful, young girl reaching a crossroads in her life. Where does she go after graduating high school? Follow her parents’ path in a musical career, or her best friend to college in California. She is broken, lost, and confused about what she wants. She has also suffered and seen a lot in her young years, holding within her guilt and pain.

Alan is a rock star and musical genius. He is hot! But don’t let the fame fool you, he’s got his secrets, too. He has his own pain to sort through. I fell in love with him! I wanted to reach into the book and pull him out into my world.

These two come together in what is one of the most beautiful love stories I’ve read. It touches on the truth of life and emotions. It expresses how difficult it is to let out what we have bottled up inside us and how guilt can drag us down, but finding love and someone to trust opens you to clearly express yourself and see things in a different light- not easily.

The secondary characters were fabulous as well! I loved reading about them and how they interconnect with the story and characters.

This is one story that will stay with me for years to come. I felt like the author took me into the book and had me live each emotion along with the characters. It is heart-wrenchingly beautiful and raw. I cannot wait to read the second book in this series and indulge in more books by Susan Ward.

You can purchase this book here: http://www.amazon.com/Girl-Half-Shell-Series-Book-ebook/dp/B00KBK4S98/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

It’s also on Kindle Unlimited! How great is that? Girl on half shell teaser 2
