*BOOK REVIEW* A Time for Hope (#3 Lexi Series) -T.Gephart

A time for hope

A Time for Hope by T Gephart


Lexi Reed was unstoppable, or so she thought. As the PR manager of international rock band, Power Station and living in New York, she was a long way from her old life in Melbourne, Australia. Having captured the heart and married one of the sexiest men alive (Power Station’s guitarist, Alex Stone) Lexi was living beyond any fantasy she could have ever imagined. Having finally allowed the walls from her past to fall, Lexi had not only learnt to trust again but had given herself completely to Alex, her one true love.

Lexi happiness was short lived when heartache and trauma throw everything she knew into turmoil. Her world came crashing down around her, and now Lexi is struggling to regain her sense of self. Unable to regroup and heal under the scrutiny of the media and her well-intentioned loved ones, she can’t seem to find the road back to the old “Lexi.”

Alex is devastated. His beautiful, intelligent and once confident wife is now distant and guarded, the product of the brutality she has suffered. He feels powerless but is determined not to lose her.

With her gorgeous rock star husband by her side and her eclectic but devoted circle of friends, Lexi starts over. In order to find a way to reconcile the past and build a future, she must let go of all her safety nets and trust those around her.

In this final installment of the Lexi series, we join Lexi and Alex on their journey of rediscovery. Relationships are tested, terms are renegotiated and lives are irrevocably changed. With the hope that their love for each other is strong enough to carry them through, Lexi and Alex gamble everything in search of their happily ever after.

In the name of good and evil, reading A Time of Hope by T. Gephart was both torturous and heartwarming. After the events at the end of ‘A Leap of Faith’ I was all ready and prepared to enter into the mind of T and not all to well to accept that it was the final book in the Lexi Series.

I absolutely loved it from beginning to end, from start to finish it was just an amazing read. I have come to expect T to bring the characters of Lexi and Alex with so much passion and heart and she did not disappoint. In such an amazing book full with humour, pain, love and the band Power Station, it was a world-wind of fun to read. I have become addicted to Power Station (P.S I love Dan parts), Lexi and Alex and also the secondary characters like James and Hannah (so sweet). Like a good cup of coffee the novel was addictive and I couldn’t put it down.

In A Time for Hope we see Alex and Lexi rebuilding their relationship and connection from the events that have perspired and all I can say is, Lexi is one kick-ass chick. Her strength and ability to make me smile is what I have come to love. As far as female leads go she is one of the best, as she is determining, strong and full of love.

The sass, love and stamina within the book was beautiful. I love how it is upbeat and I never felt disconnected from the characters as Lexi and Alex’s novel came to an end I did get a bit teary but it was full of love because we have watched these guys grow from just strangers into something really special and raw. I rated A Time for Hope a fat BEYOND rating! It ticked all my boxes in what I love about romance, Power Station and the connection that T has created in her debut series.

About The Author

T GephartT Gephart is an indie author from Melbourne, Australia.

T’s approach to life has been somewhat unconventional. Rather than going to University, she jumped on a plane to Los Angeles, USA in search of adventure. While this first trip left her somewhat underwhelmed and largely depleted of funds it fueled her appetite for travel and life experience.

With a rather eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history, T struggled to find her niche in the world.

While on a subsequent trip the United States in 1999, T met and married her husband. Their whirlwind courtship and interesting impromptu convenience store wedding set the tone for their life together, which is anything but ordinary. They have lived in Louisiana, Guam and Australia and have travelled extensively throughout the US. T has two beautiful young children and one four legged child, Woodley the wonder dog.

An avid reader, T became increasingly frustrated by the lack of strong female characters in the books she was reading. She wanted to read about a woman she could identify with, someone strong, independent and confident who didn’t lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. She enjoyed the process so much that when it was over she couldn’t let it go.

T loves to travel, laugh and surround herself with colourful characters. This inevitably spills into her writing and makes for an interesting journey – she is well and truly enjoying the ride!

Based on her life experiences, T has plenty of material for her books and has a wealth of ideas to keep you all enthralled.

T self-published her first novel through Smashwords, is about to release her second novel on the same platform and is currently writing the third book in the Lexi Trilogy.

*BLOG TOUR* Picture Perfect- Elisabeth Grace (A Limelight Novel)

Picture Perfect



Being the daughter of a big-city mayor, twenty-one year old Skye Summers has giant shoes to fill in her first real job out of college. With the public spotlight on her family, and her dad’s expectations running high, she jumps at the chance to work side-by-side on an important project with her sexy new boss.

Playboy entrepreneur Landon Steele has built a successful entertainment PR firm and broken more than a few hearts along the way. He’s counting on his enthusiastic new assistant to help him expand his business into LA… until he discovers she’s a pampered rich girl who’s in the public spotlight as much as his famous clients. Still, he agrees to give her a chance, and soon the two are heating up the bedroom as well as the boardroom.

But when Skye’s ex-boyfriend threatens to reveal a dangerous secret from her past, her job, relationship with Landon, and her father’s career are suddenly all on the line. Will she be forced to leave Landon? Or will she pursue her heart, regardless of the cost?

Looks can be deceiving. Love can ignite. Picture Perfect by Elisabeth Grace was a fun, sexy and pleasurable novel that explored the relationship of Skye- Emmy’s best friend from Rumour Has It and Landon Steele, a sexy irresistible single lad who happens to be her boss. Landon and Skye’s chemistry was off the charts from the get go, the resistances to romance, to passion and to the inter-work relationship was interesting. Skye is smart, strong and the daughter of a soon-to-be senator father.

With ever fault or line drawn in the sand there was passion and questions as to whether what the heart wants is worth the sacrifice. Living in the limelight isn’t something easy and I really loved how Elisabeth Grace in both her novels explored to different sets of “celebrity personas” if you will. The chemistry between Landon and Skye was intense, consuming and uncontrollable. Keeping this professional and not letting feelings get involved is the trick to the trade that I loved about Landon and Skye’s relationship.

Overall, it was charming, sexy and lovely novel that had romance and heart with passion and the line between professional and unprofessional examined. I really enjoyed reading it and I rated it a 4 Lit-Love, as it was sexy, fun and was a fab read in the Limelight Series by Elisabeth Grace.

EXCERPT  – Landon’s POV

It was an unseasonably warm day for December in L.A. so the pool deck was busy. I was relaxing on the chaise inside the cabana after giving my drink order to the waiter when I saw Skye making her way across the pool deck. She had on a pair of sunglasses and a floral cover-up with long, billowing sleeves. When she reached the cabana, she smiled wide and dropped her beach bag onto the coffee table in the center.

“The waiter just left. I didn’t order for you because I wasn’t sure what you’d want,” I said.

“I think I’m going to take a dip in the pool. Do you mind ordering me an iced tea when the waiter comes back?”

“Sure thing.”

She slid off her sandals and then proceeded to pull her cover-up off over her head.

I was in trouble.

I was in so much fucking trouble if I thought there was any way I might get through this trip sleeping only a few rooms away from her when she looked like that.

Her swimsuit was a gold one-piece that had a slit all the way down to her belly button and a belt around the waist. I’d been imagining what she’d look like completely naked since I’d first seen her. This swimsuit was giving me a pretty good idea, but apparently my imagination hadn’t been doing her justice.

She smiled at me before heading over to the pool and diving in. It was clear she had no idea the effect seeing her in that tiny bit of fabric had on me. That or she hid it well. Now I’d be trying to hide the wood I’d no doubt be sporting all afternoon.

The waiter returned and I ordered Skye’s drink. A few minutes later, he dropped it off just as Skye was returning to the cabana. He did a double-take as she came up behind him. I couldn’t blame him but it still fueled my competitive nature, seeing another man appreciate her rocking body. Even if she wasn’t mine.

I tipped him a couple of dollars and said, “We’re good for a while. Thanks.” Skye smiled her megawatt, draw-every-man-to-her-within-twenty-feet smile as he passed by her to leave. Fuck me, but I loved that smile. “How was the water?” I asked.

She grabbed a towel off one of the tables and began to dry herself off. “Warmer than I thought it’d be. We got lucky it’s such a nice day out today.”

“The warmers help, too,” I said, motioning to the heater in the roof of the cabana.

“There is that.” She laughed, her entire face lighting up.

She really was breathtaking…and pure…full of light. When I was with her, I forgot about the pressures of growing my business and my strained relationship with my father—everything else just faded into the background and I was just here with her…in the present. And none of the other shit mattered.

When she was done rubbing that damn towel over every inch of her porcelain skin, she came to sit beside me on the couch and grabbed her drink off the table. I watched as she took the straw between her lips. This had to be some form of foreplay torture. First the swimsuit, then rubbing herself down, and now this? As she sucked the liquid down, I began to get hard just thinking about what those lips would look like wrapped around the end of my cock.

I couldn’t watch her a second longer. I pulled the drink away from her mouth and she gave me a quizzical look. “We need to talk.”

*RELEASE BLITZ* Summer Sky- Lisa Swallow

Book title: Summer Sky by Lisa Swallow
Series: Blue Phoenix #1
Genre: Contemporary romance
Release date: April 2014
Cover designed by:  Najla Qamber Designs
Hosted by: Forever Me Romance
Sky changed her life for a man once, and she has no intention of doing it again – even if he is a six foot, tattooed rock god who makes a mean bacon sandwich.
Sky Davis is fed up of boyfriend Grant taking her for granted and when she comes home to find him wearing a girl, Sky suspects the relationship is over. She takes an unscheduled holiday and leaves the life (and guy) she hates behind. 
Rock star Dylan Morgan is struggling with fame and infamy, sick of his life being controlled by other people. Dylan cuts his hair and walks away from his role as lead singer of Blue Phoenix, leaving chaos and speculation behind.
Outside the English seaside town of Broadbeach their cars and worlds collide.
Sky decides Dylan is an arrogant guy with too many tattoos, and Dylan is amused by the smart-mouthed girl with no idea who he is. Dylan and Sky soon discover they’ve travelled to Broadbeach for the same reason – to escape from reality back to a place with happy childhood memories. 
Losing themselves in a world where they know nothing about each other, Sky and Dylan begin a summer romance that soon heats up their rainy English summer.
Fantasies can’t last forever and when reality crashes the party, Sky isn’t sure she wants to be more than his ‘summer Sky’ but Dylan doesn’t want to let her go.
Returning to the real world and public scrutiny isn’t their only problem. Blue Phoenix bass player, Jem Jones, has a reason for wanting Sky out of Dylan’s life, and is determined to come between them. Some things won’t stay hidden, even when they’re paid to ‘go away’.
Summer Sky is a quirky romance where occasionally more than the bacon sizzles. This is the first in the new ‘Blue Phoenix’ series of contemporary rock star romances.
Please note: this is a romance with a rock star hero, and not an erotic rock star book!

In a rendition of the heart, Summer Sky by Lisa Swallow was an emotional and romantic tale of a chance to find love in the most unconventional yet sweet way. Leaving Bristol behind and heading to Broadbeach all Sky wanted was some time alone to figure out what is important is life.

I loved Sky she has such a mentality to protect her heart and protect herself from getting hurt. Throughout the novel the relationship the forms between Dylan and Sky is unique and special. I loved how Lisa played the aspect of Sky not knowing who Dylan was and them developing a relationship purely on who they are without all the glitz, game and outside world.

I love a musician at the best of times so I absolutely adored Dylan and how charming he was. At times although, I wanted to smack his across his pretty face, but no it’s ok. I realised I was reading my ipad (totally joking here peps). Dylan’s got all the things in the world but something is missing love.

Overall, I absolutely adored the chemistry that Lisa created within the book. The two main characters of Dylan and Sky grow and develop in such a wonderful way. I loved how Sky was taken over by the “Dylan Effect.” With all his charm, and love this novel was such a lovely tale of how two people meet and fall in love, this however does have a cliffhanger so keep that in mind. My favourite quote was “Love isn’t something predictable, Sky, and doesn’t follow rules. You can’t decide who to fall in love with or when. Love and Logic don’t go together, but when I’m with you, everything make sense.” Swoon worthy. I rated this a 4- Lit Love because it was a great story, and I really loved the read. I can’t wait for Book 2 to come out in June. Xx

“Sky! Waves!” 
I have my back to the ocean and a wave crashes against my legs, destabilising me. I regain my footing and attempt to move before the retreating water sucks my feet into the sand. At that moment a larger wave wipes me completely, dragging my body underwater. I panic at the confusion of being pushed and pulled out of my control, seawater swirling hair into my face and the bubbles rushing into my ears. The shell remains tightly gripped in my hand.
As water draws away, I push my head free. Dylan stands on the edge of the shore, water lapping his ankles, laughing. I spit out sea water and stagger to my feet. The weight of the damp hoodie threatens to pull me down again as I push hair from my eyes.
“That was fucking funny! You should see your face!” He wades towards me, arm outstretched to help.
Attempting to keep my footing, I lunge at him and slap his hard chest with both palms. “It was not! Screw you!” Dylan catches my arms as I make contact, and pulls me towards him.
Scrutinizing my face briefly, Dylan takes my cheeks in his broad palms and crushes his lips against mine. I gasp again, but it’s not the sea snatching my breath this time. A new wave sways us, and Dylan holds my face tightly, his own footing steady as his mouth claims mine. A small voice in my head asks what the hell I’m doing but I ignore it – Dylan overwhelms all common sense the moment I have any physical contact with him. Losing myself in his mint-flavoured kiss, in the slide of his cool tongue, I yield to the power he holds over me. Dylan curls his fingers into my wet hair and pulls me closer; I respond with a deep kiss, tracing fingers across his stubbled cheek.
Fierce or gentle, his kisses mould my soul to his as perfectly as his body shapes with mine, as if we’re in a place created by our coming together. Kissing Dylan last night pulled me into his orbit, and when I see stars again, I swear his kisses will always take me to the edge of his galaxy. If Dylan can remove me from reality with just this, god knows what anything else he’s skilful at would do to me. The thought of us skin on skin, united through more than a kiss, lights a fire deep inside that would take more than the cold Cornish sea to extinguish.
Dylan loosens his grip on my hair and slides his hands across my damp back. He closes the final gap between us as our bodies meet, and I wish the rain-soaked clothes weren’t in the way. “I have never met anyone so…” He grasps for a word then gives up and rests his forehead on mine. “I feel as if I’ve waited my whole life to meet you and then suddenly you’re here.”
For a moment I consider whether he’s teasing me again, but I guess I’m very different to the people in his real life. “I can honestly say I’ve never met anyone like you, Dylan Morgan.”
He wipes water from my cheek with cool, damp fingers. “No-one’s met Dylan Morgan apart from you. Not for a lot of years, anyway.”
I stare at the truth reflected in his pale blue eyes, unable to believe any of this is reality. His grip on my back loosens, and I step back. Rain drips down his face, soaking through his T-shirt and clinging to his body in a way that does nothing to help my mounting desire to get my hands on him.
A subject change is needed rapidly, before I begin drooling.

*BOOK REVIEW* Deep Blue – Jules Barnard



When Cali Morgan kicks off her perfect post-college summer in Lake Tahoe, she has everything she ever wanted: acceptance into a top law program, a gorgeous boyfriend, and an incredible summer planned with her best friend.

Confident about her place in the world, Cali makes it her mission to be her friend’s wingwoman and help her meet guys. What Cali doesn’t count on is running into Jaeger Lang, one of her older brother’s high school friends, or the sparks that fly when she’s around him.

Jaeger has changed, and it’s not just the added height and muscle. There’s something about him that’s deep and a little scarred. In spite of the changes, Jaeger becomes a top pick for her friend—if Cali can keep her hands off him.

But when Cali’s boyfriend dumps her and her carefully laid plans begin to unravel, she finds herself questioning what it is she truly desires. In the midst of doubts about her future, one thing is very clear: she wants Jaeger for her own. The question is, has her friend already fallen for him?


In the cusp and real time world of turning 21 life can be daunting. I read ‘Deep Blue’ by Jules Barnard and I fell in love with the characters and the narrative especially Cali. I’m a huge fan on New Adult novels so I absolutely loved hearing about this book and couldn’t wait to read it. Sometimes I feel like a story can overlap and be the same thing but that was not the case with ‘Deep Blue.’ I found Deep Blue to be extremely relatable. It showed raw emotion with prior experiences helping the reader develop such an emotional bond with the characters.

In her debut novel, it was such a well-written book that explored issues that both surprised me and intrigued me within reading. Being at a crossroads or wondering what direction to go is never easy and I found showing Cali moving to Lake Tahoe for the summer to work at a Casino was great. I actually really loved the Casino and cross-road aspect although I’m not sure how realistic it is, because I haven’t heard of it before. I loved how Cali meets Jaegar (such a unique name), flames ignite, secrets are kept and it is all swoon worthy. (Being using that word a lot lately)The characters grow and although there are misunderstandings and growing into maturity the story never lost my interest.

Overall, I really loved the journey that Deep Blue took as a debut novel, it is well written and full of heart. With such adventure I loved how Barnard created characters that we could fall in love with and we did see an ending that satisfied with no cliffhangers. It wasn’t the sunset ridden the walk away but it left no loose ends and felt solid with adventure and fun. I rated it a 4- Lit Love because I really enjoyed the story and it was a great adventure. Cali was a fun feisty character. I can’t wait to read about Gen, Cali’s best friend and Lewis in the follow up to Deep Blue.


Jules Barnard is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. She attended UC Davis, whose college landscape often finds its way into her New Adult novels. She has a Master’s degree and spent many an hour running statistical analysis, until she realized her favorite part of the job was writing reports. She decided to cut out the math and add in some hot guys, and so began her career as a novelist.

Jules is a Northern California native living on the coast with her husband and two children. She has no impulse control around cupcakes and credits herself with the ability to read while running on the treadmill or burning dinner.

*BOOK REVIEW* Best Kind of Broken- Chelsea Fine



The one that got away is living across the hall…

Pixie and Levi haven’t spoken in nearly a year when they find themselves working-and living-at the same hotel in the middle of nowhere. Once upon a time, they were childhood friends. But that was before everything went to hell. And now things are… painful.

All they want to do is avoid each other, and their past, for as long as possible. But now that they’re forced to share a bathroom, and therefore a shower, keeping their distance from one another becomes less difficult than keeping their hands off each other. Because despite everything that happened before, this isn’t the kind of chemistry that it’s easy to resist. Welcome to the hallway of awkward tension and sexual frustration, folks. Get comfy. It’s going to be a long summer…


Finding a new author I haven’t heard of before is always fun. The excitement of new stories and new characters to emerge yourself in is what I love. The draw of the cover and synopsis from Best Kind of Broken by Chelsea Fine intrigued me and I was delighted to read it. During summer break we meet Pixie and Levi. Pixie, art student extraordinaire and Levi former best friend and handy man collide in a mash of love, lust and trust within the pages. I for some part felt like the story was a little disjointed but as the narrative developed I fell in love with the characters.

On Summer Break, Pixie visits her aunts inn and ends up sharing more than just the inn’s wing but also the bathroom. It was such a light and romantic story, the edge of will they or won’t they. Will feelings be shared or won’t they played out within the pages. Pixie and Levi’s relationship is interesting as they hadn’t spoken in a long time and the connection of past and present sends sexual tension through the roof which I really enjoyed.

I really did enjoy the book, it was light, and showed a form of creativity. It was down to earth with sweet romantic moments, deep narrative and a dual point of view that was so much fun to read. Overall, I liked it. The pace of the book is a little slow so if you like fast paced books this isn’t for you. The characters were easy to relate to and the charming atmosphere of the inn left my heart happy after reading. It’s not a steamy read. It is just sweet and pure. Like honey. It was an enjoyable read and would recommend it for NA and YA fans.

*BLOG TOUR* Crazy Maybe – A.D Justice

CM Tour Banner

Crazy Maybe Cover

Title: Crazy Maybe

Author: A.D. Justice

Release Date: December 1, 2012

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance


Sometimes love isn’t enough. Sometimes it’s all you need.

Andi Stone is a strong, smart and independent woman, but that wasn’t always the case. Andi never knew what a “normal” life was like. Having been raised in foster care from the age of six after the death of her parents, Andi became emancipated at 16 after an especially horrible incident forced her into a psychiatric hospital.

Luke Woods, the family black sheep and street-brawler, is determined to be a successful professional boxer despite his family’s protests. He needs Andi’s help to get there. The wedge between him and his family over his past relationship issues and career choices is not easily overcome. Luke must learn to face his past mistakes and learn to trust again.

Fireworks and passions quickly ignite between Andi and Luke in the midst of the chaos that surrounds and threatens them. She never revealed the secrets and lies from her past, but when she publicly inherits her family fortune, the living, breathing past comes back to torment her and threatens all that she holds dear. Can their love for another survive the blows that their pasts continue to rain down on them?



If I’m honest, I find books need to speak to an audience. After reading ‘Crazy Maybe’ by A.D Justice, I am kind of speechless.

Characters like Andi, are why I read but also why I write. How do you describe a pivotal strong character that stands out? A.D Justice hit the hammer on the nail with the portrayal of such an emotionally charged and powerful narrative. Andi and Luke’s story reads more than just words on the page. It is powerful, the emotion is touching and the words are uncannily high-powered. The chord that struck me through reading Crazy Maybe was that there was fight and power in the story of how the foster system treats a person. Although I found some of the narrative to be unrealistic, it was relatable in its own kind.

What drew me to continue reading was the vigorous voice of the writer and the characters narrative. Andi and Luke both draw so much power in the narrative, of the will to fight, to be loved, to survive. Love takes it’s course and sometimes you don’t have control over that. I found that reading through, there were moments I would cry for Andi and there were moments between Andi, Luke and the other characters that made me laugh. My favourite part about reading this book was the faith and trust that Andi and Luke put in each other. It was heart felt, kind, supportive and a testament to good writing by A.D Justice. The sad scenes were written with emotion, but also contempt to allow the reader to understand cases that do happen similar to the narrative. Overall, a powerfully pivotal narrative that brings together a strong female character with an ever so romantic male lead with passion and heart. What is made is magic, what is spoken is raw and what is left is love.

Our usual table is inhabited by the usual suspects – Shane, Will, Brandon and of course, Luke. He has his back to me and doesn’t know I’m here yet. So I walk to the DJ booth and tell him to queue up a song for me. I had a few drinks at the pub we just left, I’m pissed and I’m really fucking hurt, so I’m going to take it out on the stage. The song, Just A Fool, is actually a duet between Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton, but tonight I’m singing it solo. And I’m singing it with every bit of emotion I have bubbling just below the surface of my cool façade.

The lyrics are perfect for me right now. I obviously feel like a fool because I can’t get over him and I can’t let him go, but I know I should. I feel like I’m weak for wanting him to make this all up to me. For even thinking I could forgive him if he would just do something to take this pain away. Love feels like a cruel joke and no one has hurt me in the way that he has. I just want to forget about love and about him, but somehow he’s in every thought I have and every move I make.

I leave the stage and a friend from the gym I haven’t seen in a while stops me and asks me to dance with him. Another slow song is playing so I step into his embrace and we take the opportunity to catch up. He asks how I’m holding up, knowing how bad my life sucks right now, and I give him a non-committal shrug of my shoulders. Christina taps on my arm and her gaze suddenly shifts and I turn to see what she’s looking at.

Oh. It’s Luke and he is charging forward like a bull, hell-bent on his destination. Which happens to be me at the moment.

“Andi,” he barks at me.

“Yes,” I reply smugly.

I watch intently as he grits his teeth and clenches and flexes his hands. His anger is barely contained and he’s working hard at restraining himself. I know I’m not helping it but I’m no more in the mood to be fucked with right now than he is.

“I need you to come with me,” he finally says.


He nods his head, seemingly understandingly, until I realize that I read him completely wrong. He just decided he wasn’t going to argue with me. In the typical method of the men in my life, he picks me up with ease, throws me over his shoulder, and charges back to the front door. People watch with amused expressions as I scream obscenities at him like a lunatic until he reaches the door. Then I realize we’re going outside and there may be cameras that catch me actually acting like a lunatic so I stop.

“Luke – do not walk out that door with me over your shoulder. I’m in the news enough as it is. I don’t need to add any more to it,” I say in my sternest voice possible. This stops him in his tracks and I know he hears the words I didn’t say – thanks to your family.

He puts me down but doesn’t let go of me. “Then walk with me like a normal person would.”

I sigh heavily, not hiding my dislike of his demand, and respond with the typical pissed-off female response. “Fine.”

*HAPPY RELEASE DAY Reclaiming The Sand-A.Meredith Walters*

RtS bannerRtS Amazon GR SW

synopsisBully and victim.
Tormenter and tormented.
Villain and hero.

Ellie Mccallum was the bully. The Tormenter. The Villain. Taking what she wanted, stomping over anyone that got in her way. Feelings, futures, and relationships be damned. She felt no emotional connection to anyone or anything. A sad and lonely existence for a young woman who had come to expect nothing more for herself. Her only happiness coming from making others miserable.

Particularly Freaky Flynn.

Growing up, Flynn Hendrick was known only as “Freaky Flynn.” He lived a life completely disconnected even as he struggled to become something more than that boy with Asperger’s. He was taunted and teased, bearing the brunt of systematic and calculated cruelty, ultimately culminating in a catastrophic turn of events that brought Ellie and Flynn’s worlds crashing down.

But then Flynn and Ellie grew up.

And moved on.

Until years later when their paths unexpectedly cross again and the bully and the freak are face to face once more.

When labels come to define you, finding yourself feels impossible. Particularly for two people disconnected from the world who inexplicably find a connection in each other.

And out of the wreckage of their tragic beginnings, an unlikely love story unfolds.

But a painful past doesn’t always want to let go. And old wounds are never truly healed…and sometimes the farther you try to run from yourself the closer you come to who you really are.

*BOOK REVIEW* Better- Carey Heywood

Title: Better
Author: Carey Heywood
 Release Date: February 17, 2014

** inspired by actual events **

Aubrey is embarking on a bucket list trip around the world, the last wish of her Aunt Ally. It was supposed to be the trip Ally would take when she got better. Now it’s just a chance for Aubrey to say goodbye.
Adam escapes in his solo trips overseas, working just enough to fund the next one. When the opportunity to circle the globe falls in his lap he can’t refuse. The only catch, he won’t be traveling alone this time.Unable to hide from each other Adam’s overprotective nature thwarts Aubrey’s desire to find her own way. Can they move past initial assumptions to find something better?
The raw uncanny emotions that streamed seemingly out of the page with Better by Carey Heywood left me feeling every emotion from a to z. The bucket list left by her dearly departed aunty leaves mystery and hope for a young and loving Aubrey. The trip of a life time doesn’t come without a companion by the name of Adam.
If I could list reasons A to Z as to why you should pick up this book and read it I would. All I can really describe without shedding a tear whilst writing, is that it is a tear-jerking; emotionally pivotal and loving romance that deviates how to move forward when you lose someone you love and how to create memories that show that you haven’t forgotten a loved one but you also haven’t let life get away from you. Phenomenal is a word that gets thrown around quiet a lot when I find a book I have so much admiration for. The tug-a-war my heart went through reading this book was emotional and gifting.
Better is about self discovery and dealing with a lost love one, which I think is what I related to so much. The story is filled with so much love and unexpected journeys.

The chemistry between Aubrey and Adam from the beginning was amazing. Adam is the typical stand-off player, but as they develop throughout the novel there was a light shone into an unexpected love that although started off on the wrong foot, turns into passion. I loved how Carey created Adam as a photographer and with a witty streak. The characters worked both emotionally and physically to create bonds and share memories, which demonstrates real life to a T.

Overall, the journey that Adam and Aubrey intertwine through demonstrates strong characters and a pivotal narrative that you will shed a tear to. It showed so much courage and love to create and write a novel like this. Carey did an amazing job at atmospherically inhabiting what so many have endured in real life, and demonstrated it within the characters. The importance of self discovery and learning to let go. Aubrey and Adams story is a tale of finding love and accepting love. I rated Better a 5-Lit Love, as it was so emotional and beautifully written. I kept a tissue on hand, and you may need one too.

*BLOG TOUR* Kissing Eden by T.A Foster



Goodreads link:  https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20446627-kissing-eden



Have you ever thought of taking a vacation alone? I mean step on a plane, check into your hotel, and lie on the beach completely and utterly alone. No? Me either, but then right before senior spring break I got dumped.

Something about break ups makes you do things you didn’t want to do, and try things you didn’t know you were capable of.

That’s how I ended up at the Palm Palace.

That’s how I met Grey.

That’s how my spring break turned into the most unforgettable week of my life.


The quaint intertwined love of a broken heart and a broken hotel ignites passion and romance in Kissing Eden by T.A Foster. In a charming and charisma filled novel, we were introduced to Eden and Grey as strong-willed passionate and loyal characters. Oh and isn’t Grey such a romantic name.  The narrative brought a Texas charm to Spring break with Eden escaping to a charming vacation hot spot and catching the eye of an exquisite irresistible man. When reading, I loved the dynamic that was created through the friendships that Eden created.

I feel like Kissing Eden is a very light-hearted book that dives into finding your own happiness and fighting for what you want. I really enjoyed reading about Grey because I imagined him all hot and sweaty with a little bit of a temper. Palm Palace is a mess and I think it is relatable to those who do get given the inheritance of a hotel or place and because of limited funds don’t know what to do.  I love how Grey had a lot of fight in him to start taking himself into consideration and doing things he wanted to do. Eden pulled a hurt hotel owner into a happier person.

Eden wasn’t without her own struggles, which I enjoyed seeing played out.  Eden came across as very fearless and if she set her mind to something she would accomplish it. I love that in a character. All the characters interacted with great chemistry. What could have been seen as cliché and stereotypical of the romance between Eden and Grey was a really enjoyable and light-hearted novel. The build up was an interesting delivery as this is the first book I have read from TA Foster and I enjoyed how she developed the characters. The fast pace of the book helped guide the book and I think it needed to be that way instead of drawn out longer.

Overall, Kissing Eden was a loveable, lighthearted sweet romance that brought flirt and heart into an intertwining narrative. I gave it a 4-Lit Love. I would definitely recommend it for someone looking for a nice sweet romantic summer novel.
