(Unveiled #1)
Publication date: February 1st 2015

Twenty-one-year-old Emma Matthews lost the song in her heart the same night she lost her dad. With an unfulfilled promise and an ultimatum shadowing her junior year of college, maybe it’s better that way. You can’t hurt if you can’t feel.
But when the reflection she sees in musician Riley Preston’s eyes borders dangerously close to the one she’s spent the last five years searching for, Emma discovers her walls can’t guard her heart from its fiercest desire. Terrified of what she’s experiencing, and even more afraid of what she might lose, Emma grapples for the courage to hold on to one dream without abandoning the promise of another.
Contemporary New Adult Romance novel Eyes Unveiled lets you relive those heartfelt moments when you don’t know how you’d survive a day without your best friend, when you’re trying to figure out who you are and what you’re supposed to do with your life, and when falling in love changes everything.
Music. Friendship. Self-discovery. Hope. Purpose. Identity. Within this inspirational love story, you’ll find you have a song of your own to share.

Me Tarzan You Jane by Camelia Miron SkibaMe Tarzan You Jane by Camelia Miron Skiba
Moving on doesn’t always have to mean goodbye.

Widowed makeup artist Jane Sullivan is more comfortable keeping her husband’s memory alive than dating a pool full of sharks. Ella, her 4 year-old daughter, is her whole world.

When Jane meets Lucas Oliver, famous cover model, it’s hate at first sight. His playboy persona rubs her the wrong way.

Accustomed to every woman fawning over him, Lucas is drawn to the shy, uncompromising single mom and completely melts at the sight of Ella. He is determined to convince Jane that sometimes a second chance can mend a broken heart.

 Praise:

Fun book. When it first started out, I was afraid it was going to be shallow (lots of references to hot guys, etc) but it turned out to be a thoughtful story with likable characters. I look forward to reading more from this author. ~ Author Karey White

Great story! Loved Jane's strength, and learning the layers of "Tarzan." This is a great story about moving on after a tragedy and learning to trust again! ~ Author Sherry Gammon

I adored this book. The characters were so alive for me that I was actually sad when the book ended. I wanted more. Maybe the author will be kind enough to write about each of the male models mentioned here ... If your looking for a heartfelt story this is the book for you. ~Solmarie

I WRITE. I LIVE. I LOVE. I DREAM. I WRITE.

I’m a dreamer
I’m a sinner
I love my books
I conjure hooks
And heroes with good looks

Romance is my guilty pleasure
Taking me to places with new decor
Come join me if you dare
I promise not to bore

If you like to read my stories
Pray my husband continues snorin’
For he’s the one who keeps me up at night
When I give my heroes wings and flight.

Book Review: Asunder by Jodi Meadows

Asunder by Jodi Meadows
Published January 29th 2013 by Katherine Tegen Books
DARKSOULS
Ana has always been the only one. Asunder. Apart. But after Templedark, when many residents of Heart were lost forever, some hold Ana responsible for the darksouls–and the newsouls who may be born in their place.

SHADOWS
Many are afraid of Ana’s presence, a constant reminder of unstoppable changes and the unknown. When sylph begin behaving differently toward her and people turn violent, Ana must learn to stand up not only for herself but for those who cannot stand up for themselves.

LOVE
Ana was told that nosouls can’t love. But newsouls? More than anything, she wants to live and love as an equal among the citizens of Heart, but even when Sam professes his deepest feelings, it seems impossible to overcome a lifetime of rejection.

In this second book in the Newsoul trilogy, Ana discovers the truth about reincarnation and will have to find a way to embrace love and make her young life meaningful. Once again, Jodi Meadows explores the extraordinary beauty and shadowed depths of the soul in a story equal parts epic romance and captivating fantasy.
I loved Incarnate so I was eager to read the next book, Asunder. But for some reason, every time I tried to read it I just didn't click with it. I was a little bit slow at the beginning and I was kind of lost, but after a while I finally connected with the story again and actually enjoyed it.

Asunder wasn't the page turner like Incarnate was for me, it just didn't happen much until the end so I think it could have been part of the first or the final book. Anna's research was too slow and she didn't really discovered anything until the end, but I liked the changes on her relationship with Sam. I think the characters were more realistic, with more faults. I didn't like Sam in this book as much as in the previous book, but I would like to see how their relationship will develop and of course I'm dying to know what's going to happen with the new souls and the rest of them. In the end, Asunder left me satisfied and expecting a great final book for this series.

Blog Tour: Water So Deep by Nichole Giles


Water So Deep by Nichole GilesWater So Deep by Nichole GilesWater So Deep
Seventeen-year-old Emma Harris is drowning on dry land.
No one knows what’s happening to her, and she’d like to keep her evolution from human to mermaid a secret, but the truth is getting harder and harder to hide. From her adoptive family, from her friends, and especially from the irresistible James Phelps.
Her time in the ocean is spent dodging a possessive merman, while her time on land is split between caring for her special-needs brother and squeezing in every last possible moment of human life. She soon realizes falling for James is unavoidable when he constantly comes to Emma’s rescue and somehow manages to see through her carefully constructed icy facade to the vulnerability she lives with every day. Everything about James makes Emma yearn for a life on land she just can't have.
When Emma’s brother disappears on her watch, James is the only person she trusts to help her save him. But even if they can save her brother, nothing can prevent her return to the sea. Whether she likes it or not, Emma is changing—unable to breathe without yielding to the tide—and it's only a matter of time before she's forced to surrender forever.

Book Review: United We Spy by Ally Carter

United We Spy by Ally Carter
Gallagher Girls #6
Published September 17th 2013 by Disney-Hyperion
Cammie Morgan has lost her father and her memory, but in the heart-pounding conclusion to the best-selling Gallagher Girls series, she finds her greatest mission yet. Cammie and her friends finally know why the terrorist organization called the Circle of Cavan has been hunting her. Now the spy girls and Zach must track down the Circle’s elite members to stop them before they implement a master plan that will change Cammie—and her country—forever.
United We Spy is the perfect conclusion for the amazing Gallagher Girls series. It was released a couple of years ago but I just read it and loved to spend more time with Cammie and her friends.

It took me a while to remember everything that has happened in the previous books but a couple of chapters later I was already immersed in this world. This book is full of action and some dark moments, it's the climax of a story that has been developing since the first book and I was ready to finally end it, although I will miss it.

It isn't easy to find such great young female characters, but Cammie and her friends are the perfect example of intelligent and strong young women. It was exciting to read them grow up and in this book they were finally going to the 'real' world and being adults. I really enjoyed this ending, I finished the book and felt a little bit sad, but at the same time satisfied and glad it was a happy ending. Maybe too sweet in a way, after all that happened, but I think they deserved it. And Liz's graduation speech, wow, I feel like a Gallagher Girl!


Overall, I believe this was a great ending and definitely recommend the Gallagher Girls as one of my favorites YA series.
