His life is chaos and confusion. It’s a storm of uncertainty and raging emotion.

Sutton Warner is a mess. Everything in his life feels like it’s unraveling.

He’s let a lot of people down lately, including his daughter. Sutton always promised his little girl he would never disappoint her and that he would always be there when she needed him. Until he wasn’t.

The truth is, he’s used to disappointing the women in his life. First was his mother who couldn’t find a reason to stick around when he was growing up. Then there’s his ex. The woman who takes unbridled delight in making his life incredibly complicated. Luckily, his daughter is still young enough to believe her old man is some kind of hero. But, he knows the day is coming when she realizes the truth, that he’s just a man with some serious flaws and a list of ever-growing weaknesses.

Finally, there’s the woman he’s desperately trying to forget with every shot tossed back and each pill popped.

He more than disappointed Emrys…he almost got her killed.

Her love is steady and sure. It’s a shelter shaped by conviction and silent assurance.

Emrys Santos is lost. Everything in her life feels pointless and futile.

She’s been busy running away from her feelings and all the people who love her the most—including her best friend, the one person who knows exactly what she’s been through. They promised to always stick together and to lean on one another. It was a promise Em had to break so she could lick her wounds and figure out her next move. For once, there is no easy way out of the tangled web of emotions she’s caught up in, and right now, she recognizes that all roads lead back to Wyoming…and back to Sutton.

The man she nearly got killed.

Shelter is a standalone novel, the second book in the Getaway series, which features the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women who dare to love them. These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.

SHELTER is now available! Grab your copy today!

I’d been fooled once by the promise of quiet nights and serene days in the sunshine. I believed the brochure when it said I could leave my worries at home and escape to a simpler, quieter kind of life. I let myself be lured in by the picturesque landscape and stunning mountains. I foolishly fell prey to the temptation of leaving my current set of troubles behind in San Francisco while I hid away in the middle-of-nowhere Wyoming. I now knew firsthand the glossy brochure that brought me to Wyoming the first time was nothing more than a bunch of pretty, packaged lies.

I knew the bar brawl erupting in front of me was hardly the worst thing that could happen here. In fact, the level of bloodshed and violence was child’s play compared to what I’d witnessed the last time I’d stepped foot in this small, quaint town. Well, I hadn’t really been in Sheridan last time I was here. I’d spent most of my time in the backwoods that surrounded the Warner brothers’ ranch, which was still a good forty-five minutes outside of this tiny town. The ranch was where I was currently trying to get to so I could see my best friend.

When I left Wyoming, I told myself I would never come back. Ever. I told myself there was nothing here for me but bad memories and heartache. I was a pro at lying to myself, at telling myself exactly what I needed to hear to justify my actions. I could convince myself of anything, like it was okay that my last boyfriend stole my grandmother’s silver when I kicked him out because he needed it more than I did. I had no problem believing that pulling Leo out of the city was the only way to heal her broken heart even though she didn’t want to go. It was easier to distract her than it was to watch her wallow. I persuaded myself into believing what I needed to heal was space and solitude. I held onto that until time passed and I was still a mess. I was sick of my own company and of hiding from everything I was feeling.

 I was the one who always went out of my way to fix everyone else around me, it wasn’t exactly a shock to learn I didn’t have the skills to repair myself. I spent my days helping others focus on their goals, on doing better and achieving more, so I didn’t have to think about the lack of any ambition of my own. I turned thirty at the end of the year and I was still trying to figure out what and who I wanted to be when I grew up. I’d been aimless for a long time; the only direction in my life come from the fact I knew all the way down to my bones that I had to go back to Wyoming and face off with Sutton Warner.

I received an Advanced Reader Copy, in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked how the story moved from one couple to the other. There is a good flow in this series that takes you from one troubled pair to the next. I liked Sutton's and Emrys's story. Both have emotional scars and fears and both try to deal with every way they can. One with the wrong way and the other with the hardest but good one. There is no backtracking with this pair.

There is a really horrible backstory in this family and I really can't wait what will happen with the final Warner brother. Also, this book is not only a contemporary but also it holds a good dose of mystery, which kept me on my toes.

Release Day Blitz: "Pulse" by Danielle Koste


by Danielle Koste

Sci-fi, Paranormal, Romance
Jan 1st, 2018

Summary from GoodReads

Rowan Platts is addicted to success.

When she's presented with the chance to work on a top secret project fronted by her idol, renowned virologist Dr. Margot Miller, Rowan signs her life away without second thought. The realization she’s gotten in over her head comes only after the subject of their study is revealed: a boy with a bad attitude and an uninhibited taste for human blood.

He's a medical anomaly. Having the ability to crush metal with his bare hands and hear a heartbeat from across the room, it would make Rowan’s career if she was the one to discover what made him so unusual.

Easier said than done, with a subject who prefers snapping necks over answering questions.

About the Author

Danielle Koste is a born and raised Canadian, but currently lives with her significant other in the equally snowy and cold Stockholm, Sweden. While working a day job and learning the language of the locals, she spends her free time honing the craft she's always had a passion for.

When procrastinating, Danielle likes to enjoy other forms of rich story-telling, besides the obvious abundance of novels filling up her apartment and Kindle. Movies, music, and video games are among her favorite time-wasters.

ARC Review: "Devils Unto Dust" by Emma Berquist

Devils Unto Dust by Emma Berquist
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

Ten years ago, a horrifying disease began spreading across the West Texas desert. Infected people—shakes—attacked the living and created havoc and destruction. No one has ever survived the infection. Daisy Wilcox, known as Willie, has been protecting her siblings within the relatively safe walls of Glory, Texas. When Willie’s good-for-nothing father steals a fortune from one of the most dangerous shake-hunters in town, she finds herself on the hook for his debt. With two hunters, including the gruff and handsome Ben, to accompany her, she sets out across the desert in search of her father. But the desert is not kind to travelers, and not everyone will pass through alive.

Western meets horror for this riveting story about survival, family, and inner strength. Tense, short chapters propel readers from one action-packed scene to the next, while Willie’s distinctive, introspective voice deepens the emotional stakes with every turn of the page. High concept and character-driven, Emma Berquist’s debut will satisfy fans of The Magnificent Seven, Rae Carson’s Walk on Earth a Stranger, and HBO’s Westworld.



I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

Even if this book releases on 2018 I could keep it down. The Wild West meets zombies in this engaging trip from one city to another and a girl's attempt to save her family.
Willie, her brother Micah and her twins brother and sister live in poverty in the small town of Glory. It's the 19th century and Northern America has literally abandoned everyone to the South after the terrifying disease of the shakes. If you come in contact, you turn into a zombie.

When Willie's dad leaves them with a debt and the fear of losing their house and lives, Willie will employ the hunter brothers, in order to travel through the desert and find him. The story was gripping, tragic and quite funny at sometimes. The description of the scenery and the strong physical emotions it causes are shown realistically and I could help but sympathise with Willie.

She tries everything for her family and has to be hard in order to survive. Not to mention that the name of the town Glory, reminded me of the Glory town of Rae Carson's series. In an alternative world.

There is also romance, even if it's subtle and gentle. The romance wasn't the focus of the plot but it worked perfectly. If westerns and zombies are your thing then "Devils Unto Dust" encompasses both of your preferences!

About the author:

Emma Berquist grew up in Austin, TX and currently lives in New Zealand. She likes horror movies and dogs and dislikes brushing her hair and writing bios.

ARC Review: "Moonlight Sins" (de Vincent, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Moonlight Sins by Jennifer L. Armentrout
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout delivers the unforgettable story of a woman whose new life has just begun—but may end in murder...  

Julia Hughes has always played it safe until she learned a very painful lesson. Now Julia’s starting over with a job in the Louisiana bayou—and a scorching encounter with a stranger, only to discover he’s Lucian de Vincent... her new employer. The de Vincent brothers share a massive fortune and a dark reputation. Julia cares for their troubled sister, but a menacing presence in the mansion—and the ever-present temptation of Lucian—prove dangerously distracting.

Lucian’s grandmother claimed de Vincent men fall in love once—and hard. Apparently, it’s Lucian’s turn. Julia’s compassionate care of his twin makes Lucian want to lay himself bare. But some secrets are better for Julia not to know.

The recent “suicide” of Lucian’s father is the latest in a string of deaths on the estate. Someone is eliminating the de Vincents. And the best way to get to Lucian may be through Julia...



I received an e-ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. 

If you enjoy Jennifer's books, but you also want something darker and mysterious, then the "Moonlight Sins" is for you!
To summarize, take "Dynasty", strip it from its glossy theme song, add a sprinkle of darkness, then topple it with a touch of supernatural. I'm pretty sure that this family has lost the number of Ghostbusters...or even the Winchester brothers.

Julia takes the job of a live-in nurse, taking care of the sister of the famous De Vincent family. All three brothers have lots and LOTS of luggage which would make even the best psychologist tear his diplomas. Devlin, Gabriel and Lucian truly are relevant to the true meaning of their names.(see the hidden meaning!).

For me, Lucian is the alternative version of Seth, who grew in a parallel Earth as a cocky golden boy. With a dark twist. I liked his chemistry with Julia, despite the mistake he did in the beginning. She matches him in his demeanor and attitude, trying to ground him and surely their discussions can make you smile and swoon too.

The house as described by Jennifer is downright scary. I have seen the Southern style of the houses, which look like the ones from "Gone with the Wind" or the ones from "The Princess and the Frog", so I wouldn't want to stay in such a big house. The mystery keeps you on edge and you really wonder if everything is as it seems.

I surely didn't expect the last pages; Jennifer knows how to surprise me as a reader!
And seeing that Gabe is going to be the next brother in the sequel, I'm really excited and anxious about him. Devlin, on the other hand, has a lot to explain and maybe be smacked in the head a couple of times!

2017 Debut Authors Blog Tour: Guest post by Nikki Katz Author of "The Midnight Dance"

Welcome to 2017 Debut Authors Dash! This widespread blog tour, created by YA Reads, features different debut authors of 2017 along with the bloggers who will promote them! Don't miss the chance to read the books too! On my tour stop today I'm featuring Nikki Katz author of "The Midnight Dance"!

                                                        Summary from GoodReads

When the music stops, the dance begins.

Seventeen-year-old Penny is a lead dancer at the Grande Teatro, a finishing school where she and eleven other young women are training to become the finest ballerinas in Italy. Tucked deep into the woods, the school is overseen by the mysterious and handsome young Master who keeps the girls ensconced in the estate – and in the only life Penny has never known.

But when flashes of memories, memories of a life very different from the one she thinks she’s been leading, start to appear, Penny begins to question the Grand Teatro and the motivations of the Master. With a kind and attractive kitchen boy, Cricket, at her side, Penny vows to escape the confines of her school and the strict rules that dictate every step she takes. But at every turn, the Master finds a way to stop her, and Penny must find a way to escape the school and uncover the secrets of her past before it’s too late.



Recitals and Rivalries

Although The Midnight Dance features a ballet recital/performance, I did not grow up in a world of dance. I took several ballet and jazz classes but never participated in recitals. I did, however, participate in theater all four years in high school and my fifteen year-old daughter has been involved in theater for ten years, five of those professionally. I definitely felt qualified to speak to the performance aspect of recitals, and the rivalries among the girls!

Whenever there is an event that involves auditioning, there is bound to be rivalry. There is bound to be someone who gets the part and someone (many people) who do not. There are pros and cons to this type of competitive environment, lessons you may not learn elsewhere!

  • You have to fight for what you want. You have to come prepared. You have to try your hardest and do your best job.
  • You learn to live with disappointment. Not everything in life goes as planned. It’s a tough lesson for a child or teen to learn, but it’s imperative to learn to lose with dignity and grace.
  • You learn to work as a team. Many times, especially in dance, one or two people will get lead roles in a performance, but there is still an ensemble. You have to put your differences (and perhaps jealousy) aside to work for the betterment of the group.

  • Jealousy runs rampant. It is extremely difficult not to be jealous of the person who beats you out.
  • It brings out the ugly. I’ve seen girls who try to psych out their competition by stretching or singing or speaking very highly of themselves right before an audition occurs.
  • It can be devastating. My daughter once walked out of a final callback thinking she had nailed the part. The director was very complimentary to her and practically ignored the other children. When she didn’t get the part, she was a wreck for two days. I had to explain that it wasn’t necessarily that she did a bad job, it was that the part just wasn’t right for her.

In participating in a recital/performance type activity, it’s imperative to put rivalries aside, no matter if you get the lead or an ensemble role. Nobody likes a gloating winner and nobody likes a sore loser. My best advice is to accept a lead role graciously and understand that those around you will experience jealousy. It’s okay for them to be happy for you and sad for yourself. The flip side occurs as well … if you get an ensemble role do your very best to shine in that part. Be happy for the person who got the lead, but it’s also okay to take a little private time to be sad for yourself and reflect on what you might be able to do better next time!

About the author:

Review: "The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic" by Leigh Bardugo

The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns.

Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price.

Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.

Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales will transport you to lands both familiar and strange—to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.

This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.



A gorgeous tale of folklore stories from the world of the Grisha! Enter an enchanting tale of brothers and sisters, monsters and beauty, enchanted toys, witches, mermaids and singers! I truly loved reading each tale with the gorgeous illustrations around the pages, which grew more and more each time I read.

I especially loved "Ayama and the Thron Wood", which had an element of Beauty and the Beast mixed with the Greek myth of the Minotaur.
On "When water sang fire" there was a surprising cameo which made me scream on Twitter. I seriously didn't expect "The Witch of Duva" to have THAT ending!

The other stories were really well-written too and if there will be a chance for something similar to happen into other series (YES I'M POINTING AT YOU ACOTAR!), then I'm all in!

About the author:

Leigh Bardugo is the #1 New York Times bestselling and USA Today bestselling author of the Six of Crows Duology and the Shadow and Bone Trilogy, as well as the upcoming Wonder Woman: Warbringer (Aug 2017) and The Language of Thorns (Sept 2017). 

She was born in Jerusalem, grew up in Los Angeles, and graduated from Yale University. These days, she lives and writes in Hollywood where she can occasionally be heard singing with her band. 

She would be delighted if you followed her on Twitter, elated if you visited her web site, and fairly giddy if you liked her selfies on Instagram

Cover Reveal+Giveaway: "Society of Wishes" (Wish Quartet #1) by Elise Kova & Lynn Larsh

Welcome to the cover reveal of the New Adult Urban Fantasy co-written by Elise Kova and Lynn Larsh! Stroll down to the cover and the giveaway!


Josephina Espinosa makes her living as a hacker-for-hire in the Lone Star Republic, a remnant of the fractured U.S.A. That is, until the day she and her best friend are gunned down in a government raid.
With her dying breath, Jo uses magical lore passed down from her grandmother to summon a wish-granter. Her wish? To save her friend’s life. Except wishes have costs, and for Jo, the price is the erasure of her entire mortal existence.
Now, as the most recent addition to the mysterious Society of Wishes, Jo must form a new “life” alongside the seven other members, one of which being her savior himself. Living as an occupant of the Society’s lavish mansion should be quite the perk, but while it is furnished with everything its inhabitants could possibly need, it lacks one thing—freedom.
Her otherworldly identity crisis takes a backseat, however, when Jo learns that the friend she sacrificed everything for is headed down the same path to ruin. Jumping in head-first, Jo uses her newfound magical abilities to protect him, only to realize that the ripples of her actions have far-reaching consequences. When the Society’s aloof leader Snow decides to give her a taste of his own ancient magic, Jo discovers that there are threads woven into the tapestry of her new reality that reach far beyond the wishes she is now required to grant. Ones that, if tugged on, could mean the unraveling of her existence itself.


Elise Kova is the USA Today bestselling author of the Air Awakens series, Loom Saga, and Wish Quartet. In her past lives, she has graduated from an MBA program, lived in Japan for a bit, and worked for a Fortune 500 technology company. However, she finds herself much happier in her current reincarnation as full-time author. When not writing, she can usually be found playing video games, drawing, watching anime, or talking with readers on social media. She’s happy to call Saint Petersburg, Florida, her home, but is always looking forward to her next trip.

Lynn Larsh considers herself to be a serial hobby-dabbler. She got a bachelors degree in music (which she used for all of four months), studied aerial acrobatics and classical piano for many years, worked briefly as a stunt woman in a Wild West stunt show (it’s a long story), and eventually settled down into the bar tending business in St. Petersberg, FL. When she’s not acting as a purveyor of fine libations, you can find her diving head first into her newest venture as a New Adult author, or simply writing Voltron fan fiction on Archive of Our Own.

Blog Tour+Excerpt+ARC Review+Giveaway: "Can't Get Enough" (Original Heartbreakers #6) by Gena Showalter

From New York Times Bestselling author Gena Showalter, comes the next standalone romance in the Original Heartbreakers Series—CAN’T GET ENOUGH!

Grab your copy today!



New York Times best selling author Gena Showalter returns with a sizzling Original Heartbreakers tale, featuring a rough, tough bad boy brought to his knees by... a kindergarten teacher? 

The king of one-night stands... To inherit--and destroy--his father’s business at long last, Brock Hudson needs a temporary wife. The ruthless ex-military heartthrob has always avoided romantic entanglements. Women are sweet, but vengeance will be sweeter. Or so he thinks. Only one woman will do, but the vulnerable beauty is more than he bargained for—sexier, wittier, and utterly irresistible.

The queen of the deep freeze… After an abusive first marriage, Lyndie Scott has sworn off relationships. But still she longs for a child of her own. Turns out, the brawler who used to frighten her with only a glance is the answer to her problems. She agrees to his proposal, with a caveat: spend every night in bed with her, then walk away for good when it’s time to divorce. Even if she’s pregnant.

A marriage of breathtaking inconvenience... As the days pass too quickly and the nights heat up, Brock battles a sense of possession and obsession. Will the former commitment-phobe convince his wife they’re better off together, or will she pack her bags and go?

The next morning, Lyndie tried to convince herself that she’d agreed to marry Brock only because of the wine.
Cabernet said I’d have no regrets, but cabernet could be a no-good liar, so…
A dozen times she picked up her phone, intending to call or text him, only to stop.
On one hand, marriage. On the other, baby. If she had a third hand, sex.
More wine could balance things out. Breakfast wine—good idea. She walked to her wine closet—AKA her pantry. Only four bottles remained. Time to restock. For now she’d go with merlot, a more honest wine. Honesty mattered!
Despite the early-morning hours, a single glass helped mellow her mood. Merlot + marriage = possible win. Merlot + marriage + possible pregnancy = total landslide.
I can do this.
Even better, she would do this.
A little bit later, a text from Brock came in.
How’s my soon to be wifey-poo doing this morning?
Her heart started to race, and not just with nervousness. She replied, She’s almost calm. Are we really going to do this???
A few seconds, and his response came in. In my fantasies, we already have. But we’ll get to that later. How do you feel about a Sunday wedding… one week from today??? I warned you we’d do this quick.
Okay, from wanting more to wanting to vomit. A cold sweat beaded her forehead. She had next Monday off, so technically, timing worked. She typed, I feel like time is gonna pass quicker than a hot knife through butter. If we get hitched on a Sunday, it’ll have to be after church services. So why not go to the courthouse and get this whole thing over with?
One minute passed. Then another. She waited with bated breath until her phone buzzed.
Brock: I’ll talk to the pastor at Strawberry Community Church. I’m certain he’ll let us do the deed between services. And we’re doing it this way because we’re Hudsons, and Hudsons do things right. Sometimes. Fine—because I want to see you in a gown, walking down the aisle. Yes, that’s right. You’ve given me a gown fetish. I hope you’re happy.
Lyndie smiled.
Brock: You’re still a go? Because if I need to give you a sample of my bedroom prowess to convince you, I will man up and do my duty.


I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

I really couldn't be more excited to read the final book of this spin-off series! Lyndie and Brock were by far the best couple in this trilogy. Both with their own traumas, but both with the mental power to overcome them and be happy. There was no separation like the previous couple but instead a slow, good building with humor, sexy scenes and lots of pets.

I also got the idea that there will also be ANOTHER spin-off of this series, if we think of Brock's brother and the new teacher. But who knows? This book was the best of this author for 2017.
