A new, sensual Adult Contemporary Romance from author of the Amazon bestselling PRESERVATION SERIES, THE REPLACEMENT, and LOVE AND RELATIVITY. Coming to e-readers everywhere May 26, 2014.

It’s not water that paralyzes Anya Banks—it’s the ocean. Tumultuous and powerful, sleek and unpredictable, it’s just like Tanner Christensen, owner of Trident Voyager, the cruise ship she’s been talked into boarding by her vivacious, foodie fanatic best friend and co-worker, Lana. Tanner exudes confidence, and his raw masculinity is hard to resist. But Anya came aboard to work, face her demons, and then get the hell back to dry land.

Until Tanner convinces her to take the plunge.

She quickly dives into a fun, carefree arrangement with him and embraces her goal to be brave, no matter how loudly her shaky knees tell her to abandon ship. For twelve days, Tanner’s all hers. For twelve days, she’s his goddess. Once the cruise is over and the ship docks, she won’t be the same. But being brave always costs something, and this time, it might cost her heart.

Rachael Wade is the Amazon bestselling author of The Preservation Series, The Resistance Trilogy, and the upcoming sci-fi series, The Keepers Trilogy. When she’s not writing, she’s busy learning French, watching too many movies, and learning how to protect animals and the environment.

Going Nowhere Tour

Going Nowhere
Going Nowhere by K.M.  Galvin
Series: Twenty-Something #1
Release date: January 7th 2014
Purchase: Amazon
Marisol Finnegan has done everything right to ensure that when she graduated college she’d have the kickass life she always wanted. That’s what we’re told right? A + B = C? Yeah, well sometimes C is being a twenty-four year old virgin moving home with your parents.
So not ideal.
Before entering this tragically pathetic phase of her life, Marisol stops at a bar for a drink. It’s here where her life really changes when she meets her catalyst…Jason Scott.
After everything you’ve ever done has backfired and you no longer trust yourself how are you able to navigate a relationship? How do you even begin to love yourself let alone someone else?
Personal Thoughts:  Wow what an amazing read this was. This was my first read by this author and I was in for a nice surprise. Not only was this a fun and fast read, it had an amazing plot! The characters were wonderful and fully developed and the pace of the story fit right. It wasn’t too slow and it wasn’t too fast either.
 We could easily relate to Mari’s struggle of doing the right thing by always studying and working hard and avoiding all the fun. However, at times Mari’s thought process does get to you. Everyone has had to struggle to where they want to be in life and life is never as we want it to be or expect it.  The author does a great job of showcasing the struggles of a recent grad, who has to move back to live with her parents, no prospects of a job and a thought of whether the degree is worth it or not.
I loved the way that Marisol and Jason interacted with each other, and giving each other nicknames. Also the romance between them felt real and not too shallow and unrealistic. They had their fair share of fights and they had to come to terms with their arguments. This book is a great refreshing read that feels real and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a great romance read :)

Pretending by Shanna Clayton

Three years. That’s how long Dahlia Reynolds has been living with a total stranger. She’s convinced herself Wesley Kent is no more than illusion in the hallways. It’s easy to do, especially since that same illusion has never spoken more than two words to her. But one mistaken identity later, and she finds herself caught up in the mysterious world Wesley lives in. One by one, he begins knocking down the safe, comfortable walls she built, leaving her wondering what his motives are. Does he want to expose her—or free her?

Recommended for 17+ due to mature language and adult situations.

Personal Thoughts: This book took a while to get used to due to the back and forth of the POV’s of Dahlia and Wes. What really captured my attention was the situation that they are in. There is talk about hunting for treasure and Wes’ dad was a treasure hunter when he was still alive. They have to put up with each others company to get an inheritance and the situation doesn’t dwell well on their side.

Despite it taking a while to get the hang of the plot and the writing, it is quite an interesting book. There is a lot of great factors in this book, the romance is done well and the mystery keeps you reading so that you can find out what will happen next. Although there are parts that could have been written better/done in a way that would make more sense, the story does come together towards the end. :) Wes and Dahlia start to grow on you and are on a level that we can all relate.

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

Chasing Perfect Book Review

7203690Chasing Perfect by Susan Mallery

Publication Date: April 27, 2010

Publisher: HQN

Source: Library

Synopsis: Welcome to Fool’s Gold, California, a charming community in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. There’s lots to do and plenty of people to meet, especially women. Because there’s just one tiny problem in Fool’s Gold: the men don’t seem to stick around. Maybe it’s the lure of big-city life, or maybe it’s plain old bad luck, but regardless of the reason, the problem has to be fixed, fast. And Charity Jones may be just the city planner to do it.

Charity’s nomadic childhood has left her itching to settle down, and she immediately falls in love with all the storybook town has to offer everything, that is, except its sexiest and most famous resident, former world-class cyclist Josh Golden. With her long list of romantic disasters, she’s not about to take a chance on another bad boy, even if everyone else thinks he’s perfect just the way he is. But maybe that’s just what he needs someone who knows the value of his flaws. Someone who knows that he’s just chasing perfect.

Personal Thoughts: Fool’s Gold is a charming town set in California. It has its usual small town characteristics such as busy body’s, nose people and no such things as secrets. Charity gets a job as Fool’s Gold city planner and she finds out soon enough that there is a pressing problem. There is a serious lack of men in town and it’s her job to bring them back to town.

As she starts to settle in, she meets the town here and celebrity, Josh Golden, a former world class cyclist. He’s sexy, smart and everything that Charity doesn’t want anything to do with. Before long, sparks are flying and things are starting to get serious. However there are underlying issues coming from both sides that are preventing Josh and Charity to move forward and move on to the next chapter of their relationship. It is going to take compromising on both sides to get over those challenges for a chance at happily ever after.

Susan Mallery does a great job with Chasing Perfect by introducing all the important characters in town, setting the story line in a great area and making the plot quite entertaining to read. Right from the start you get attached to the characters and you are rooting for them. :)
