Aster Layne believes in physics, not psychics. A tarot card reading on the Ocean City Boardwalk should have been a ridiculous, just-for-fun thing. It wasn’t. Aster discovers she has a very unscientific gift—with a simple touch of the cards, she can change a person’s fate.
Reese Van Buren is cursed. Like the kind of old-school, centuries-old curse that runs in royal families. Every firstborn son is doomed to die on his eighteenth birthday—and Reese’s is coming up fast. Bummer. He tries to distract himself from his inevitable death…only to find the one person who can save him.
Aster doesn’t know that the hot Dutch guy she’s just met needs her help–or that he’s about to die.
But worst of all…she doesn’t know that her new gift comes with dark, dark consequences that can harm everyone she loves.
I absolutely love this kick off to this new series by Brenda Drake. I absolutely love all her books and this one is not an exception. This book was one of the ones that got me through my difficulties that I have faced. I enjoyed the characters and loved the synopsis!😍 I can’t wait to read more of what she comes out with! With being a tarot reader, it made this story that much more enjoyable but would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good YA read.💖
I’m sorry that I still need to catch up on reviews, Loves! I have missed everyone dearly and hope that I really can get back into the swing of things. Last month, I said I was going to get back into blogging again but some illness popped up and prevented that. Thank you guys for always being there! Much Love!
PLEASE TAKE YOUR SEATS. THE JOURNEY TO HAPPINESS MAY INVOLVE SOME TURBULENCE.
Christa Morrison has commitment issues, a fact that quickly becomes apparent after she flees a romantic proposal in Paris, the thunder of impending wedding bells ringing in her ears.
Back in Sydney, she turns to her closest friends for reassurance. Instead they offer her a startling and painful diagnosis: she’s a relationship junkie. The cure? An extreme rehabilitation program guaranteed to reform even the most L-word illiterate.
With her girlfriends along for the ride, Christa commits to their radical plan and the chances of recovery look good. The only problem is Max Spencer. The one guy Christa—and her friends—never expected her to fall for. But he’s proving to be a temptation she may not have the willpower to resist …
For a shot at happiness, is being with Max worth betraying her friends? And will Christa have the strength to trust her heart when her colorful relationship history comes back to haunt her?
It might just be enough to make a poor girl leave the country (again).
Autumn Chase is painfully aware grief is a beast that won’t be chased off before it’s ready to leave. When an icy road and a dark night leave her a young widow, she’s forced to trade in her perfectly planned future for the unknown. Like a child hiding from a monster, she pulls her covers up over and head with the intention of sheltering herself forever. But once an unexpected stranger shows up on her doorstep, Autumn has to choose between being alone or connecting with someone who is hurting as badly as she is.
Noah Key, an emergency room doctor. He has solemnly informed countless families that their loved one could not be saved. However, when his own wife dies suddenly there are no words to bring him comfort. His in-laws want him to fall to pieces to confirm his love for his late wife. His colleagues want him to take time off to grieve. The only thing Noah wants is to work enough hours in the day to forget his wife is gone. He’s written himself a prescription for a cocktail of distraction and exhaustion in order to trick his brain into thinking his life isn’t in shambles.
When the world keeps moving on without them, Noah and Autumn will need to decide if they’ll survive the storm or allow themselves to swept away by it.

He is her dream come to life. She is invisible to him…
Jessica Harper is a sweet and innocent woman, held back from a life of her own. Clint Wilkins is a cut above the rest, but he’s broken, and emotionally unavailable. When Clint’s vow to never marry and his attraction to Jessie square off, will he take her innocence…or her heart, and change both their lives forever.
Jessica Harper only daydreams of escaping her demanding family. So when her Uncle Roy begs her to come to his large cattle ranch in Montana to help Mabel, his cantankerous cook, she jumps at the chance. Once Jessica arrives, the cook isn’t her only problem. Right out of the chute she meets the compelling, handsome ranch foreman. Though she recognizes him as her life-long dream, she must face the fact that they are not a matched set. He’s much too…everything, for her. Yet, Jessica can’t seem to keep her mind or her eyes off him. Her desire runs rampant, her faith is tested, her courage fails her, and that’s all before an unforeseen disaster strikes.
Clint Wilkins, the rugged, stand alone foreman — and Gallatin County’s most sought-after bachelor — has successfully fought off marriage for years. But, before he knows it, Jessica’s sweet nature and strong character burrow under his skin, blazing a path straight for his philandering heart. When he finds himself poleaxed by the wholesome Jessie, he must re-evaluate his calloused lifestyle. But, as he tries to change, he is reminded how damaged and used up he is, and how pure she remains. Yet, he can’t seem to resist her powerful tug on his reins.
Will they trust the path God has set for them, or turn away from each other for good?

Ginger Snapped: A Cybercrime Thriller with a Shocking Twist
Publication Date: October 22nd, 2018
How does an amazing professional opportunity descend into a living nightmare?
Carefree Ginger’s motto of “Work Hard, Play Harder” shapes her life. So when her husband, Jake, gets a job offer on the other side of the country, she is up for the adventure.
But after Jake accepts the promotion, nothing is as expected. While Ginger remains in Cleveland to sell their house, she is plagued by strange prank calls, premonition-like nightmares, and the feeling that she is being watched. Is Jake’s new job putting her in danger?
Unfortunately, she ignores her intuition and soon finds herself face to face with a ruthless killer. Trapped in a deadly world of corporate corruption and murderous greed, she must overcome her own fears and rely on her wits if she plans to survive.
Although the first in the Ginger Gibson series, this is a standalone book.
Oh No! I’m back. I am surrounded by inky black nothingness. The air is musty…damp, my nostrils fill with the smell of dank basement. Like in a haunted house, filled with saws and chains and bloody hooks, this is the perfect place for any psycho to hide his tools of the crazy trade. I’m trembling, from the all-encompassing fear, eating at every cell in my body.Where am I? My fingers search out for clues. Beneath me is a thin mattress on a hard surface. My head rests on a concrete-like pillow. My breathing escalates as the panic rises in my chest. I open my mouth to scream, but only a muted croak escapes. Over the thunder of my pounding heart, I hear a booming crack, a gunshot. I recognize the sound from a trip to the range with Jake years earlier.
I swing my legs over the side of my perch, thinking in my blind panic to run even though I cannot see. I can’t ignore this intense urge to flee. But my impulse is thwarted by an unknown restraint trapping my left arm, a rope? Panic has me in its grip. I gasp for air to fill my lungs but produce only whimpers and muted pleas.
A loud screech reverberates through the darkness. Rats? Oh, please, no rats! Could this get any worse? Hysterical, I yank relentlessly on the rope tethering me. With each tug, the line cuts deeper into my skin. My arm warms as blood seeps from the gouges, coating my hand and fingers. Behind me, the pounding sound of footsteps startles me. Before I can turn to confront my visitor, I feel the rush of air preceding the impact to the back of my head. A blaze of bright stars then, a different blackness envelopes me.
After over twenty years in Human Resources, Chloe decided to make a change. She returned to her first love of writing. She combined her corporate experience with her love for the written word to create engaging cyber-crime thrillers.
On a personal note, Chloe lives in Cleveland, Ohio with her loving husband, Mike. They spend their free time boating, scuba diving, and of course, reading. Her latest cybercrime mystery, Ginger Snapped, is available on Amazon.
First Full Moon by Michelle Alstead Genre: YA Fantasy Release Date: August 28th 2018
More secrets. More lies. I’m going to die. She wanted a car for her sixteenth birthday, not magical powers… Candy McGregor is a teenager living in Sequim Falls, a small East Coast town, where the McGregors own just about everything. While her grandmother grooms her to run the family business—a pharmaceutical empire—Candy dreams of a life where she’s known as more than just a last name. When the monthly family dinner turns into a horror show, Candy discovers the McGregors aren’t so much blessed as they are cursed. At midnight on her sixteenth birthday, Candy inherits both the ability to do magic and the destiny to become a wolf on the next full moon. There is hope of a life that doesn’t require being chained up once a month. If Candy can undo the original spell that created the curse, she can rid the world of werewolves and remain a witch. But there’s one really big problem. Not everyone hates being a wolf. With the next full moon looming, Candy must take on forces that will do anything to stop her. Will she break the curse or surrender to life as a monster?
I highly enjoyed and loved reading within a day, First Full Moon by Michelle Alstead! This was a wonderful delight to read and I am so glad to take part of this tour! The world building was fantastic and had great characters that were easy to grow a connection to. I loved the magical elements and how Candy finds herself. If you love a book that is a great fantasy or just love a great YA read, then I recommend checking out The First Full Moon by Michelle Alstead! I give this goodread 4.5 out of 5 awesome stars!
Michelle Alstead is a single, divorced mom of a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder, who tries to promote autism awareness and advocate for gender equality while raising Sheldon Cooper and searching for some semblance of a love life.
Annabelle Dare is in a good place. She landed a sweet job, teaching at the quaint Fox River Elementary School. She has everything she needs: teaching music and sharing an apartment with her best friend. A simple life, she’s convinced, is all she needs.
Asher Grace knows who he is and what he has to offer. Nothing. A poor boy from the wrong side of town, steel worker, with too much weight on his shoulders as he is trying to hold his family together. Best choice is avoiding too-sweet-for-her-own-good Annabelle at all costs.
Annabelle falls in love with the way she comes to life with Asher. He awakens a hunger for life and love in her that she didn’t know she possessed.
Asher must learn his worth beyond his upbringing and his past. Annabelle must learn to stoke the fire of life as it burns within her and learn how close she can get before the flames lick her.
This novel surely kindled a fire within me! I have been going through grief and this was the perfect feel good book to lift me up! I loved the character’s sweet romance that is looked down upon but how beautiful the fire grew within Annabelle and Asher. They grew together and learned how to love together. I know it’s been a while since I have posted my reviews but during the grieving process I finished numerous novels and just need to catch up on all the reviews *hides behind the cover*but I can definitely say this was one of my favorite reads because it hit all the right feels and helped make me feel alive again even though it still hurts. I love how books can be great therapy and I recommend this book for any aliments you may have or not! I am so glad I got to experience this sweet and realistic romance. ❤❤❤

My thoughts are just, WOWza, I am absolutely over the moon with Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault and Bride of Glass by Candace Robinson. It’s been over weeks since I read these books but both full plots are still engraved in my brain thoroughly and the only bad thing about that, is that I want more! I read both of the stories within 2 days and there is so much great things that I can say about these books that I just don’t know where to begin!
That’s right, fuck yes! To say this series exceeded my expectations would be putting it mildly. The series first off had fantastic characters as well as secondary ones with plenty of depth in all of them. They all have such unique stories that brings them together in the craziest, most intense and even sweetest way possible. Perrie is a lovable herione and it’s fantastic seeing her grow and how incredibly strong she becomes in multiple ways throughout this story. For such a young age, she grows quickly beyond her years in life experience and she has a heart that can withstand any shards of glass thrown her way! *Pun intended* What also captivates your heart is the chivalry of August and the intensity of his many layers. You also have to love Perrie’s best friend/cousin with all her wierd cuteness! There are some big twists in this book that while I guessed a small part of it, there was plenty turns left to take me on the ride of a lifetime.
What also surprised me about these two novels was that the sequel was just as exciting and trust me when I say that when you finish the first, you won’t be able to stand waiting too long for the next! The worldbuilding is done amazingly and we are brought to a place that is way beyond your average fairytale retelling. In fact, calling these stories retellings do not do them justice because this is something dark, unique, twisted and fun all at the same time. I give both of these novels 5+++ Stars out of 5! I highly recommend reading these novels by Candace Robinson to anyone who loves something truly magical! A #MustRead!❤💙❤💙
