{Excerpt+Giveaway} Boy in a Band by Lisa Loomis

“I’m glad you came,” he said. “I wanted to hear you play.” He glanced at me quickly. Stupid response. I looked toward the house and could see people in the living room and poolroom. I wanted to race towards it, get inside and get warm again. “You can go back now,” I said. “You don’t have to walk all the way.” I felt him grasp my hand and spin me towards him, making me falter. My free hand shot out landing on his chest in order to balance myself. His skin felt soft and warm. “What was that?” I gasped, looking up at him. His eyes searched mine. My hand was still on his chest, and I let it fall, looking down to avoid his eyes. My mind raced, and I remembered our fireside conversation. What is he doing? He had a thing for some girl named Debbie. I didn’t move. It seemed like a long time we stood that way when finally he took my face in his hands… Read more »

{Mini Review+Excerpt+Giveaway} Fling Club by Tara Brown

{Mini Review+Excerpt+Giveaway} Fling Club by Tara Brown

Fling Club is the first book in the Serendipity Series by Tara Brown. This book was so much fun! As you will see below, it was influenced by Cruel Intentions and Gossip Girl, and being that I am huge fans of both of those movies/series, I knew this was going to be the perfect fun summer read. And it totally was. I am already itching for the next book in the Serendipity Series! I will say, that while it shouldn’t come as a surprise, a book that is inspired by Gossip Girl does have a flair for the dramatic. So if that is not your thing in romances, then this might not be the book for you. But if you don’t mind overly dramatic characters, and can read the book for what it is- a guilty pleasure fun read, then I think you will enjoy it.  We meet a lot of characters in Fling Club, but the one that sticks out the most is Cheery. I do love a good revenge plot,… Read more »

{Guest Post+Giveaway} #StarPassage Book 3: Honor & Mercy by @clarkrburbidge

{Guest Post+Giveaway} #StarPassage Book 3: Honor & Mercy by @clarkrburbidge

Books that Have Significantly Influenced My Writing: There are too many to list them all. I will provide a quick list of ten for your information. I enjoy stories both true and fictional where the characters must reach inside themselves and find their greatness. Overcoming is a powerful read for me. It is the personal struggle during the challenge that makes a difference. Monsters in literature can be internal or external. But however they are constructed they are key to the story. No hero becomes such without overcoming something. It is the monsters that allow heroes to become heroes. This is true in our own lives as well. We too often see trials, challenges or disruption as overwhelming and by obsessing on our loss or the sudden change or bad luck we lose our way. But understanding that it is these very trials or personal monsters that provide us with the tools to become great changes the game. Our darkest hours then are seen in a new light as a… Read more »
