Book Talk Review; My Unexpected Forever

Image
The second book in The Beaumont Series by Heidi McLaughlin

 While there is a novella that comes after Forever My Girl, I haven't read it yet, but I plan to. Like all the books in the Series the novella is a standalone. When I get around to reading it I will do the Book Talk.



  I expected a life of music.
  I expected to raise my son.
  It took one look to make everything change.
  I never expected happiness.

  I never expected to find her.
  I never expected to feel desire.
  I never expected I’d be a family man.
  I never expected to be loved.
  I never expected to fall in love.

 They say you should expect the unexpected, I didn’t realize my unexpected would be the forever kind.  Harrison James. He is so sexy, so sweet, and just so my type of BBF.   Katelyn is the perfect mom, perfect wife, who is slowly unraveling from the death of her husband.  We learned in Forever My girl that Liam's best friend from high school, and Katelyn's first love Mason died. We see the affect…

Due out April 30, 2014 Elizabeth Decker views herself as shy, totally average, and pretty much insignificant. She’s nothing special, at least not compared to her little sister, Audrey. Elizabeth is content with her plain and lonely future; she’s too insecure to contemplate a relationship thanks to her sister. Audrey is a bombshell and uses this to get what she wants. She’s a girl who will stop at nothing to control anyone and everything around her. She craves power and doesn’t care if she has to hurt Elizabeth to get it. Nathaniel Morgan has spent his whole life fighting for his twin brother, Nicholas. Somewhere along the way, he lost himself. Now he’s just getting by. He’s devoted to his family, but emotionally detached from the women he burns through like wildfire. He has no plans of getting into something as complicated and committed as a “relationship”.

With the threat of her younger sister in danger, Lil crosses dimensions but it may cost her even more than she bargained for. A sword wielding girl, the eternal suit, and a parallel universe come together in this action-packed Young Adult fantasy adventure that will keep readers of all ages turning the pages.

Book Talk Review; Forever My Girl

It's time for a new Book Talk, Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin kicks off the new week!

 I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after.

 I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I've poured my soul into my music, but I've never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile.

 And now I'm going back.

 After ten years.

 I hope I can explain that after all this time.

 I still want her to be my forever girl.  This is the first book in the Beaumont Series   This is the story of Liam and Josie. After Ten Years Liam is back in Beaumont. After Ten Years he sees Josie.   Josie, who's heart he broke when he decided to go out and break the mold.   Josie, his high school sweetheart and the only one who's ever had this rock stars heart.   With L…

Book Talk J Sterling

Our next Beautiful Author is the amazing J Sterling!

 Jenn is the author of In Dreams, Chance Encounters, The Games Series; The Perfect Game, The Game Changer, and The Sweetest Game, and her latest release Seeing Stars.

I got fired from my last job.
It's true.

I know you're sitting there thinking, "Jenn, how could anyone in their right mind fire someone as amazing and awesome as you are???" And i'd love to give you a good reason, but the truth is... being This! Awesome! is clearly very scary to other less awesome people.  :)

So I said screw them and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing books that mean something to me is a million times better than working my ass off for someone who doesn't really care about anything other than the bottom line.

My soulfeels more satisfied.
My heart, morefull.

So thank you for reading, loving and recommending the stories I write.
I think you're awesome- and not only am I not scared of…

And We're Back! Sorry for the Technical Delays that went on this past week but We are ready to continue with our Colleen Hoover Feature!

 A chance encounter in the dark leads eighteen-year-old Daniel and the girl who stumbles across him to profess their love for each other. But this love has conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be make-believe.

 When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect. Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen outside of fairytales.

 One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. But Daniel soon realizes that fairytales don’t exist, and unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens …

Blog Tour; Checked by Jennifer Jamelli

Image
Callie spends countless hours staring at appliances to make sure they are really unplugged. She wastes obscene amounts of time checking for murderers in various corners of her house and entire sleepless nights performing pointless checking rituals. Then every spare minute is filled with inspecting doorknobs, chairs, floors, etc. for minuscule traces of germs. Oh, and she does all of this as she counts to three over and over again in her head. She does this every day. Without fail. Dr. Blake just doesn't fit into her schedule. Until he does. Until Callie begins to trust him. Until she starts to need him. And want him. And . . .
