Cover Reveal—-> Out of Reach by Missy Johnson

Title: Out of Reach 

Author: Missy Johnson

Release Date: May 8, 2014


My best friend was dying and I was in love with his girl.

Andy and I had been best friends since we were eight-years old.

Watching him slowly fade away, ever closer to his final breath, made me so incredibly angry. I knew there was nothing I could do to change it–I had given in to despair, but Andy had not. He had one last hand to play.

He wasn’t going to simply sit back and wait for Death to claim him–not Andy. He was going to live life until he couldn’t hold his eyes open any longer.

Andy didn’t want to die in some sterile hospital and asked me to take him and Emily to the beach. It would be our last road trip together.

Emily. Emily was a problem for me.

I harbored a secret that would have torn our friendship apart. I was in love with Andy’s girl, and had been since she’d walked into our sixth grade class, so many years ago.

So what kind of person am I? My best friend is dying, and it’s awful–but my heart still aches for his girl. I hate myself for thinking beyond Andy’s death and whether there could ever be a future for Emily and I, but I can’t help it.

I’m in love with her.


Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she’s a cat, a cat who thinks he’s a dog…you get the picture).

When she’s not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.

A New Cinderella Story! A Blue Tale by Sarah Dosher


Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3

How many of you have watched the different variations of Cinderella?  I mean there are millions.  We all have our favorite, and as a child, just like Eli.  Cinderella was always my favorite, and still is to this day!  Now imagine instead of a glass slipper, you have a blue guitar, and the rest is history… well kinda!

Eli the daughter of rocker Kirk Savage.  She grew up around rockers, but her dad did a fabulous job of keeping the truth about backstage, drugs, and groupies away from her until she was old enough to figure it out.  As a child she found good in all people, but after being hurt she put up a wall.  She is a confident young lady, who’s sucessful, and when she hears Deacon’s fingers graze his guitar for the first time, she knows he is something special.  What she doesn’t know is how she saved him a long time ago.

Deacon, something about him made me <3 him from the get go.  I don’t know if I just saw honesty within his soul or if it was the fact that he’s had a hard life.  I wanted something great to happen to him.  I was and still am #TEAMDEACON.  He’s got a past, and one that haunts him, pushes everything to a breaking point, but through it all, he sees a life worth living.

Shaw, is Eli’s best friend since they were kids, they crossed a line, he thought with his other head, and she will never love him the same.  I wasn’t sure how I felt about him, but I will say he grew on me.  By the end, I didn’t hate Shaw instead my heart hurt for him and his decisions.  He pays the ultimate price, but I believe that he wouldn’t have it any other way.

A Blue Tale is a story about love, loss, heartache, forgiveness, truth, and moving forward.  It’s about doing things together instead of alone, facing your fears, overcoming your past, and keeping memories alive.  This story is one that pulled me in from the first word, but by the end, I felt my heart hurt. The story of Eli and Deacon isn’t your storybook Cinderella.  It’s better!  She doesn’t meet her Prince Charming; instead, she meets a man that exceeds Prince Charmings expecations and keeps on giving.

If you are looking for a book, that is full of angst, love, drama, and oh-no-she-didn’t moments then A Blue Tale by Sarah Dosher is for you.  She never ceases to amaze me with the words that she creates, and I can’t wait to see what is in her future!  Get your copy of A Blue Tale today!

Cover Reveal ——> Protecting Lyndley by Amanda Bennett


Coming May 2014


My name is Lyndley, or Sarah I suppose, depending on who you ask. My once amazing dream of a life had all been taken away from me one tragic night. A night that I wouldn’t soon forget. I knew my job was a dangerous one, but it never crossed my mind that one day it could all just disappear right before my eyes. Now I was trapped in a never-ending nightmare and living a life that was no longer my own. At least I wasn’t completely alone, but Ky Wakely was the kind of man that made you wish you were. Sure he was easy on the eyes, but everything else about that man drove me utterly insane. I suppose every dream comes with a price, but when it’s your life, was it a price I was willing to pay?

ifly @JillianDodd Hate Me: A Review


hate me



HATE ME – Book #5 

I was told if I went away, he’d forget about me, lose interest, and move on. 

But he hasn’t. 

In fact, my being gone has only made things worse. 

So it’s time for me to take matters into my own hands. 

It’s time for me to fight back. 

Hey, Vincent. You ready for a little chaos?

Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3

Everyone has an author that they drop whatever they are doing to read their newest release. Well, Jillian Dodd is that author for me. I do have a few others, but I sit on pins and needles until it’s released then back to waiting for the next episode of The Keatyn Chronicles. Needless to say Hate Me lived up to EVERY expectation.

Hate Me picks up where Adore Me leaves off. Keaytn is in question of returning to Eastbrooke, but pretty much is left with no choice but to go back.

Once she is back at Eastbrooke we see Keatyn in a new light. One that includes a fight and drive to show Vincent she’s not scared anymore, but what she doesn’t expect is for fall harder for Aiden. Gosh I just love him!!!

Of course, Hate Me is full of hottie god, love, lust, a new party hangout which is freakin’ awesome, more Cooper Steele, heartbreaking, and fighting until the end.

In Hate Me you see Keatyn grow more than any other book in this series. She takes things into her own hands, and needless to say Vincent is left speechless. When Winter Formal approaches, we know things are getting serious for Aiden and her.

At Winter Formal, Keatyn does what any fabulous friend would do, and she puts everything on the line. The problem is… will it cost her love, life, and freedom?

Ruining You by Nicole Reed


For a girl who dared to tempt death, living is the only promise that matters now. 

Jay’s life almost came to a forced end when her darkest secrets were revealed and the one who she chose to give her future to was ripped away. Now, everything she kept hidden is the topic of everyone’s conversation, and not all are sympathetic. Someone wants her horrific past to dictate her future, and another is determined to help her choose a different path.

In conclusion to Ruining Me, Kane and Rhye know that Jay is worth the fight, but waiting for her to find herself may ruin them all.

Recommended for readers 17+ due to sexual situations, violence, and language.

Chelly’s Review <3<3<3<3<3

The first book ruined me…and I couldn’t wait for this one. If you haven’t read Ruining Me, please do before reading this review…it’s almost impossible to write this without giving something away.

“Don’t lose out on something that could be forever because you think the timing isn’t right. Don’t let fate decide.”

It’s been 64 days since Jay’s world was torn apart. She goes to therapy now in a voluntary inpatient facility to help deal with her feelings and what she’s been through, and technically she can leave whenever she wants, but the guilt she still feels for ruining everyone’s lives makes it impossible for her to face everyone at home. She spends her time alone, reading letters from Kane, Molly, and her parents time and again. Kane’s are the hardest, especially since the last one says he’s moving on. She can’t blame him really, that’s what she wants for him, he deserves so much more than what she can give him.

Eli is the new guy in the therapy center and at first Jay refuses to let him in, but soon they become the best of friends. He’s a straight shooter and doesn’t hold anything back, and he proves to be exactly what she needs to start working through her issues and healing. When he finally convinces her it’s time to face the music, she’s terrified but packs up to head home.

She thought she knew how her death would have affected everyone, but she never thought about how living through the attempt would affect them. Everyone’s life has changed because of her. She has promised herself that she will live now, but the people around her don’t know that; they only know that she tried to kill herself and could easily do it again. And she’s missed so much in the last 3 months. She never really thought about what happened to everyone else after the accident, especially Cal (that part broke my heart). Kane still cares for her, but he says he’s moving on, which is what she thought she wanted, but can she really let him go and let him be happy? Rhye hasn’t given up on her either, but before she can make a decision about either of them, she must take time for herself and figure out what she wants.

On top of everything else, the detectives are on her case about testifying against Coach Branch. Without her testimony, Coach will likely walk away a free man, but Jay can’t talk about what happened in front of her friends and family…it will kill her. Can she work up the courage to testify and put him away for good? Can she move on with her life and stop blaming herself for the accident and ruining everyone’s lives? Will she finally be able to love again?

“One makes me laugh…One makes me cry…One touches my heart…One owns it.”

Nicole Reed has done it again. This story took my already broken heart, crumbled it up a little more, and then slowly started piecing it back together. I already loved every character in this book from before, but this one took that love even deeper. I love a book that can rip me apart and make me feel absolutely every emotion possible, and Ruining You did exactly that. Do yourself a favor, read anything from Nicole Reed…you won’t be disappointed!
