Cover Reveal: Working It Out by Rachael Anderson

Author Rachael Renee Anderson

Rachael Anderson is the author of four books: Divinely Designed, Luck of the Draw, Minor Adjustments, and The Reluctant Bachelorette. She’s the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can’t sing, doesn’t dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.

Working It Out
A chance encounter . . . 
Grace Warren’s life is safe and predictable—exactly the way she likes it. But when she gets roped into going to an auction to help out a friend, everything changes. She meets Seth Tuttle—a guy who unexpectedly kisses her then disappears, leaving her flustered and upset. If she never sees him again, it will be too soon.

A chance for love . . .  
Weeks later, when Seth limps into Grace’s rehab clinic post surgery, she immediately recognizes him. Unfortunately, he’s every bit as frustrating and annoying as she remembered. Yet there’s something about him that makes her second-guess her carefully placed boundaries even though he’s everything she’s sure she doesn’t want in a man. But maybe Seth is exactly what Grace has needed all along—assuming she’s willing to risk safe and predictable for a chance at love.

Psychology student Will McLean is posing as a fellow addict while researching a case study on unusual addictions. But the more he learns about Leah, the more certain he is that his desire to break through her walls and unearth her secrets has nothing to do with his assignment.

Embers by Amy Keen Review

Embers by Amy Keen | Published September 27th 2012 by Fisher King Publishing

Blurb from Goodreads

Scarlett Roth loves nothing more than to immerse herself in a good book. So, the tale of a modern-day witch hunt and a sinister adversary threatening to irrevocably alter a young girl’s life forever should be the perfect story in which to lose herself. Unfortunately for her; she’s the girl, the threat is real and she will unearth one of the modern world’s greatest secrets – the witch trials are not over, they have evolved.

Scarlett’s life is thrown upside down when she starts having terrifying visions. Her only comfort in a strange new town comes in the form of enticing and popular Jake; but the more she learns about her ‘power’, the more she realises her interest in him is drawing unwanted attention of the darkest kind.

Review:
You did not see it, but I was sitting here a while, contemplating what rating to give this book. This is very hard. On the one hand you have a sublime story, it has POTENTIAL! It’s kind of original, I like it. It’s about a girl who moves with her mother to a little town and not just any little town, it’s SALEM! She meets the guy of her dreams (ok, not really, but the guy is really hot and dreamy, makes me want to move to a little town as well) And then she’s starting to get premonitions. And then she finds out there are still witch-hunters! (aww come on, it’s Salem, you know it was gonna be about witches! But then again it’s not). But it’s not just that, it’s a whole finding out and digging into history and such. And the girl loves to read! Perfect right? I already like this girl!!! NOT!!! Why do you ask? Because the girl is a MORON! Even if it was a story smack dab in Miami beach, you would roll your eyes and know people would hunt her. She KNOWWWWWWSSSS people are going to try to label her as crazy and of she goes, acting like an idiot! If I had her as my daughter I would slap some sense into her and bring her to the loony bin myself sjeeezzzzz! Normally it’s hard for me to review a book, because I don’t know what to say that doesn’t give away any spoilers, but now it’s hard for me because I can’t believe I wasted time on this book. My copy is littered with little notes like “seriously?”, “you’ve got to be kidding me” and “because you are a moron, stupid!”.

I have one thing to say to the writer, one word actually: EDITOR!
The book was riddled with mistakes, it felt like there were passages missing and one moment she was saying something and contradicting it the next. If Scarlett was the one to save the world, I would start digging my own grave.
But the story does have it’s potential. Make the girl a little less clueless, give her some backbone and let her use the brain you obviously wanted her to have (hello! she reads!), lose some of the drama, let the story flow like it could at times and you’ve got yourself a bestseller if you ask me.

As for my rating? Don’t waste your time. Maybe if she got a good editor. Hell give it to some of the bookfreaks on Goodreads. The story needs editing and rewriting. So yeah, I am not reading the second book in this series. I might forget I am reading on a kindle and throw it against the wall

Waiting On Wednesday

New WoW

“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine , that spotlights book releases that we can’t wait for. This is the one I’m waiting for!

o-DOCTOR-SLEEP-COVER-570

Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. On highways across America, a tribe of people called The True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless—mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and spunky twelve-year-old Abra Stone learns, The True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the “steam” that children with the “shining” produce when they are slowly tortured to death.

Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father’s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant “shining” power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes “Doctor Sleep.”

Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan’s own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra’s soul and survival. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of devoted readers of The Shining and satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

UNTOUCHED Release Party Blitz

Emerson Ray is trouble. Juliet knows it the minute she lays eyes on Cedar Cove’s resident bad boy. Forced to spend her summer before college in the sleepy beach town, she never expected to crash into the most devastating guy she’s ever met—or for Emerson’s blue eyes to strip through her dark secrets, and make her feel a desire she’s never known. Their connection is undeniable, but Juliet is torn. She knows, once she gives him everything, there’ll be no turning back.

Juliet McKenzie is dangerous. Emerson can tell from the way she blows through all his defences, laying bare the demons he’s carried alone all his life. He’s left a trail of broken hearts and empty beds in his wake, but Juliet is different. Her innocence is intoxicating—and the passion she keeps hidden, just below the surface. He wants to be the only one to set it free, but with every kiss, he’s closer to losing control and doing the one thing he swore he never would: fall in love.

One summer. Two damaged hearts. Their story is only just beginning…

UNTOUCHED is a prequel novella to the USA Today Bestselling UNBROKEN. It also can be read as a stand-alone story.

“Hey,” he grins, easy, and slides his hand around the back of my neck, pulling me in for a long, lazy kiss. My heart is racing as I taste him, mint and coffee, and something else, something all Emerson.“You ready?”He puts the truck back in drive, and then slings his right arm around my shoulder. I snuggle closer, reveling in the touch of him.“Ready for what?” I ask, as he turns out of town.“This is our first date.” Emerson announces.

“Really?” I laugh. “I thought we were a long way past that.”

Like, three bases past.

I blush at the reminder, and I can tell from his wolfish grin that Emerson’s thinking the same thing.

“A girl like you deserves a real date,” Emerson declares. “Not just groping in the dark somewhere.”

“In case you’ve forgotten, I kind of liked the whole groping in the dark thing,” I say, amazed at my boldness.

Emerson laughs. “Only kind of? Sweetheart, if that was you kind of liking something, I can’t wait to see what happens when you love it.”

“You’ll just have to find out then, won’t you?” I tease.

“Oh, I will. Believe me, baby. I’ve got plans for the two of us.” Emerson gives me that look again, dark and wild. He curves his lips into a teasing grin.

V is for Virgin by Kelly Oram Review

perf5.250x8.000.indd

Title: V is for Virgin
Author: Kelly Oram
Published: December 11, 2012 by Bluefields
Number of Pages: 360

Blurb from Goodreads:

When Val Jensen gets dumped for her decision to stay a virgin until marriage, the nasty breakup goes viral on YouTube, making her the latest internet sensation. 

After days of ridicule from her peers, Val starts a school-wide campaign to rally support for her cause. She meant to make a statement, but she never dreamed the entire nation would get caught up in the controversy. 

As if becoming nationally recognized as “Virgin Val” isn’t enough, Val’s already hectic life starts to spin wildly out of control when bad boy Kyle Hamilton, lead singer for the hit rock band Tralse, decides to take her abstinence as a personal challenge.

How can a girl stay true to herself when this year’s Sexiest Man Alive is doing everything in his power to win her over?

Review:

I had started this book since I needed a book that started with the letter V to add to one of the reading challenges on Goodreads. I had no idea what to expect from this book when I started it, but am very happy I chose to read it in the end.

I loved that Val stayed true to what she believed in, but in some way I do think the author should have challenged her a little more. I also loved the great success she had even though sometimes it was all a little too much for her. Her best friend Cara, well yeah, I kinda had a love/hate relationship with her. Oh and Kyle…sweet Kyle..pain in the ass Kyle..sexiest man in the world Kyle…I do have to admit he kinda went all out to try and win Val over, even if some of the things he did were a little over the top to say the least. I liked to see the story that developed between them and also how slowly he started to change his ways as well.

Every teen girl should also read this and parent’s should be ashamed to buy this book either. If your daughter wants to read this, let her! She may come off for the better too!

Rating: 3 Stars
