Blessed. Stressed. Reading Obsessed.

WOW, Y’all!   How in the world has it been TWO years since I last wrote on this blog?  I honestly can’t believe how fast that time has flown.

IMG_2929

Hardcover Therapy is back and I’m so excited I can hardly stand it.  I might have to cut a cartwheel… or maybe not.  Instead, I’ll go and run a few miles.  However, there will be a few changes.  Did you see that tagline?  Blessed, Stressed and Reading Obsessed?  What did you think?

For me personally, I know I’m not alone.  My cup is running over and I truly am blessed with my faith, family, career(s), and so much more.  The past two years I have had some ups and downs, but no matter what, I have remained positive.  I want to always show a positive light on life.

Life can get a little stressful at times, but I wouldn’t trade my life for the world.  I think all of us women can relate to that. (The everyday things that have to be done at home, running our children to extracurriculars, the extra bill showing up in the mail, etc.)

Hardcover Therapy will now be a place for us as women to come to enjoy the little things in life called blessings, find ways to remove the little stresses, and of course, discuss the books we are obsessing over.

Since I took a break from this site here’s what has happened in my life…

20993043_10211098205996780_761227042784888143_n
My WORLD

Carlee & Billy are still my top priorities.  I love spending every moment I can with them and my family/friends.  The past two years I’ve grown so much in my own skin it’s crazy. For the first time in my life, I’m okay with me inside and out.  I’ve realized that as long as my faith is strong, my family is by my side, and I remain positive through the hard times that I will be fine in this life.  I’ve truly started to embrace the small moments in life.  I can put down my phone or laptop and take a moment to bake cookies with Carlee or to have a lunch date with my husband with my phone on silent.  It can wait… they are what truly matter in life.

Author Casey Peeler has written a total of nine full-length novels and five novellas.  It has been amazing and I’ve learned so much about myself as a writer as well.  I’m def still that #SweetSouthernReads kinda girl.  I’ve got a new release in March with several WIP currently.

I’ve dilly-dallied in two direct sales companies- Plunder Design & NuSkin.  Plunder Design was brought to me by one of my fabulous readers, Olivia.  She had the cutest jewelry and it had a very unique southern style to it.  She stayed on me for six months before I gave in.  It’s very southern chic and super affordable.  Y’all like the average price is $20 or less!  Now, I just dilly with it and have an online site.

NuSkin Cooperate Office Provo, UT

NuSkin however changed my life with one little tube of toothpaste.   In February, I came across it and said why not.  It’s free to join.  Needless to say my husband was like what in the heck are you selling now. LOL. Little did we know that our lives were about to change.  My husband worked for an assisted living facility and wanted to step out on his own.  This business allowed us to be able to do that without the worry of making sure we had a roof over our heads and bills paid.  Ya know what I mean?  I didn’t know at the time that I would fall head over boots for this company, products, and beliefs.  The company is one I believe in and will be going to South Africa in March as a reward for my success.  Why does this matter?  Well, here’s where things get interesting.

As a child I was obsessed with Africa.  My Mom always believed I’d be her missionary in Kenya.  So for me, this is a dream come true to visit.  Their Nourish the Children foundation has touched my heart, and soon I’ll be an ambassador for the company.  What does this mean?  I will be able to go and do the outreach my Mom believed I’d do as a child.  It’s funny how things come full circle isn’t it?  Has that ever happened to you?

Shug & Honey tee accented with Plunder earrings

Last May,  my sister and I launched a women’s shirt line called Shug & Honey which is featured in my stories.  It’s been fun to work with her and create southern style shirts along with unique watercolor designs.  There have been some ups and downs with this business.  We are both mom bosses and sometimes this is what gets put on the back burner.  It’s an adventure we enjoy but def more of a hobby for us.

All of these items are featured under my SHOP tab.

Now to life…

During the past two years, I’ve discovered who I AM.  I am strong, goal oriented, determined who loves her faith, family, and living life to the fullest.

JuneBug Jam my 1 year RUNiversary

If you would have asked me a little over a year and a half ago to run a marathon, I’d have laughed at you!  Y’all in SEVEN days I’ll be running 26.2 miles at the Charleston Marathon!  I use to only run if something was chasing me, but two friends changed that with a 5k.  Needless to say, it created a fire in my feet and I LOVE it.  I’ve had some BIG goals for this race, and it’s all about mindset.  So bring on that 3:45 and keep pushing for the 3:40!  I promise to let you know how it goes.
Running has seriously helped me realized a lot about myself.  I’m strong, determined, consistent, and it’s the time I take for myself four days a week.  It’s like when I sit down and escape in a good book.

So tell me…

How has your life changed the past two years?  Are you looking for a place to connect with women who are busy moms who want to escape the everyday hustle with a good book?  If so, stay tuned because I’ve got the place for you.

With Love & Mason Jars!

Casey

One ending is another beginning…

Hey Y’all!

Most of you know that since I began this journey as Hardcover Therapy my life has changed tremendously.  I’ve gone from reader/reviewer to author/reader/reviewer.

Over the past few months, balancing both sites has become difficult.  I’ve felt pulled in what I need to do because this site is where it all began, but I’ve made the decision to move my blog post to my author website.

After today, I will continue to review, post my favorite titles, give recommendations for books, country music, and southern style, but it will be on at Author Casey Peeler.

I’m so thankful for each and every one of you that visit this website daily, weekly, monthly, or whenever you have a spare moment.  Please take a moment to follow me on my author page.  I love seeing your comments and thoughts.  You’ve been my family since I started this crazy journey, and I would love nothing more than you to continue on this adventure with me.

With <3,

Casey Peeler aka Hardcover Therapy

Cover Reveal: Addiction by Shantel Tessier

Title: Addiction 
Series: Seven Deadly Sins #1
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: November 17, 2015
Cover Design: Perfect Pear Creative
Photographer: Dave KellyPhotographer 

Cover Models: Lance Jones & Jami Watts
I’m a sinner with no regrets. I’m a man with no shame. 
I’m a lover with no soul. 
What am I? 

You’re a loner with no friends. 
You’re a beggar with no place to go. 
You’re a face with no name. 
Who are you? 

It doesn’t really matter what I am or who you are. Everyone has sin in common. But I pride myself on doing it better. Through the eyes of another, I am envied. If they only knew the wrath I have endured. Greed can be a motherfucker, but it is what makes us strive to be better. Lust can make you burn, but without it you would freeze to death. Some of us are a glutton for punishment and want to feel the pain that reminds us we’re still alive rather than overcome by sloth. 
The lure of these seven deadly sins is like an addiction. And I intend to indulge in each of these unforgivable sins.
I cross my arms over my chest, getting more comfortable. “Come in,” I call out.

The door opens, and she comes walking in as if she owns the place. Shoulders pulled back and chin up. She is dressed much differently than she was last night, but it doesn’t change the fact she’s beautiful. She’s pulled her long, dark hair up into a messy ponytail with loose pieces framing her flawless face. She has an oversized white t-shirt on that hangs off one shoulder. The color of her bra strap gets my attention. Black—my favorite color. She’s wearing a pair of black yoga pants that hugs her thin legs. Even though they cover more of her legs than her shorts did from last night, they seem more sexual. More intimate in a way that makes me want to peel them off her slowly.
“I need to have a word with you …” I arch a brow at her hard tone even though it did sound cute “… sir,” she adds a little softer, and I hide my smile. So she doesn’t have as much backbone as she wants me to think she has. 
“I don’t think we’ve been properly introduced,” I say as I stand. I reach out my right hand toward her. “My name is …”
She holds up her hand stopping me. “I know who you are.” She cocks a dark eyebrow. “A word?” She’s all business. 
I smirk as I sit back down. “Of course. And please, call me Case.” I gesture to the chair that sits across my desk. 
“I’ll stand. This won’t take long.” She takes in a deep breath, and I allow myself a quick look at her large chest hidden behind that t-shirt. I can’t touch her, but I sure as hell can enjoy the view.
“What can I do for you?” I ask with amusement. I can think of several things I could do for her, all of which would require her being naked and bent over my desk. I rub my hands on my thighs as I feel my cock start to harden at the thought of her, open-mouthed, moaning in pleasure. 
“My brother told me that he owes you.” She gets right to the point.
My face hardens at that statement. My amusement is replaced with anger. What else did he tell her? “I don’t see where what business I have with your brother is any of yours,” I say flatly.
She crosses her arms over her chest and lets out a huff. The motion blows the dark strands around her face. “That is where you are wrong. I don’t know what he owes you, but I’m willing to pay it.”
I refrain from chuckling at that. I lean forward and place my forearms on my desk. She quickly scans the tattoos on my arms and then looks back at me. “Taylor…”
“Call me Miss Williams,” she informs me lifting her chin. 
“Miss Williams, I assure you that you cannot pay what he owes me.”
I watch as her tough act starts to unravel. “I don’t have a lot of money, that’s true. But maybe I can make payments,” she offers, her voice sounding more desperate than demanding.
I shake my head. “This isn’t about money.” 
She stomps her foot, and I chuckle. Her beautiful blue eyes narrow on me as she uncrosses her arms and points an angry finger at me. “Name your price!” she demands. “Everyone has a price.”
If she only knew how right she is, but I say, “There is no price.”
She throws her arms out to her side. “I came here …” She pauses as she looks around the room as if it can give her some sort of an answer. Then she mutters a curse in frustration. When she looks back up at me, she looks desperate. Her eyes have softened, making them look lighter than they are. Her lips part as she breathes in a sigh, and her shoulders slump in defeat. And I hate that I like the way it looks. That it makes me feel like she needs me. That I hold all the answers. Too bad she’s not gonna get them.

I need a #SmokeBreak!

I don’t know about y’all, but somedays I feel that I can’t catch up, nothing goes as planned, and life is just flat out insane.  There are days I even joke about needing a cigarette, and I don’t even smoke! LOL!  Please tell me you can relate?

Last week I heard Smoke Break by Carrie Underwood, and it made me smile.  (I’m so excited about her upcoming album!!!!)  It’s life, and totally makes perfect sense.  It made me reflect on my life right now.  It’s crazy busy with balancing family life, writing, blogging, and my full time job.  Sometimes when life gets out of control and we want to take a few moments for ourself we should pause and take a “smoke break.”

Check out Smoke Break by Carrie Underwood?

Check out these other FABULOUS country songs that include a little smoke!

Smoke When I Drink by Kelleigh Bannen

The best birthday present ever!

How many of you have one gift you’ve gotten over the years that you never forget? What was it? A Southern Fried Chics dress, a new pair of boots, or even the lastest iPhone? Or have you ever gotten sometime bigger and not materialistic?

For me, it’s what I received on my birthday in 2013 that will is the most memorable. See for me, my life had begun to change. I no longer was just a high school special education teacher, but I was also an aspiring author. Not many people in my small town knew I was publishing a book within the next month, but one man believed in me from the moment I was born. That was my Pawpaw Dover, and on my birthday in 2013 he gained his angel wings.

I know most of you are like what in the world, but for me that was the most precious present I could have received. Let me give you a little insight into that day. Below is a note for readers at the end of Southern Perfection. It was published one year later.

A Note from Casey Peeler

On my birthday, August 23, 2013, my world was rocked. I lost one of the most influential men in my life, my pawpaw. From the day I was born on August 23, 1981, until the day he passed, August 23, 2013, I believed the sun set in him, just as he did me. See, I was “his girl,” but I was also his caregiver in the final days. He has been one of my biggest supporters on this journey as an author, but yet, he didn’t get to see me hit Publish.

     Halfway through the Full Circle Series, I knew Southern Perfection would have to be written, but honestly, until the words were written on the pages, I never knew the impact it would have on my soul.

     Southern Perfection isn’t just a good ol’ country romance. It’s a story of family, taking the good with the bad, always being positive in life regardless the situation, and becoming the person you are destined to become while your loved ones look down and smile upon you each day.

     I hope and pray that every one of you that reads this novel has a Sunshine in your life, because even though mine is no longer with me physically, he still continues to shine through me each day.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00066]

Each of us have memories that stands out in our lives. For me, this day was a blessing and honor. It’s another memory that I will hold dear. So, as we celebrate the “birthday” of the United States independence find a memory to hold close to your heart and take time to hold onto the ones you love!

He needs a roommate. She needs a place to stay. One thing leads to another and Sam finds herself moving into an apartment building full of college boys. Sam is not easily enticed by the bevy of young studs, but the ambient testosterone causes Sam to reevaluate her position and thrust herself back into the dating pool-table that is.
