FAVORITES GIVEAWAY HOP



When I signed up to participate in the Favorites Giveaway Hop, hosted by StuckInBooks, I knew exactly which books I wanted to offer for the giveaway.

In the past few years, I have come to love the books by Heidi McLaughlin. From the moment I started reading Forever My Girl, I knew that I'd stumbled on to something really special. My fondness for the characters has grown from book to book. My love for her writing is not limited to the Beaumont Series. She grabbed a hold of my heart with the unconventional love story of Ryan and Hadley in Lost in You. This was the first paperback book that I purchased. Heidi has given her readers many characters to connect with and stories that are moving, inspirational, dramatic, and romantic. 

I have multiple copies of these books. My signed copies. Extra copies to loan to friends to read. I have all of the e-books and most of the audiobooks that are available. When I'm looking for a book to reread, I gravitate to these books for the characters and their stories. She is a favorite "Go-To" author and I love sharing these books with readers any chance I can get.

To find out just how awesome these books are and why I love them, you can check out my reviews which are linked here:


Reviews for 12 Days of Forever, Lost In You, and Here with Me (to be written)

For this giveaway I am giving away one paperback of one of Heidi's books that are currently available in print - winner's choice.

Stella Ford’s grasp on reality is already loose, and it’s about to come undone.

Stella is determined to heal them both. Healing, however, is a challenge when the walls of her everyday existence collapse. And when Sam’s best friend is his worst enemy.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books to Read with My Book Club


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because they are particularly fond of lists. I am too so that is why I am participating this week.

Top Ten Books to Read with My Book Club

  1. Never, Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher - I’ve read that this book messes with your mind and what better book to read with other people so you can share your thoughts. This is our next book club selection.

  2. Requiem by Lauren Oliver - My book club read the first two books of the Delirium series together. I don’t know why we didn’t do the same for the third. I’ve read it already, but I could definitely read it again.

  3. Here with Me by Heidi McLaughlin - I’ve recommended all of Heidi’s books to my book  club and many of the members have read her books, but we’ve never read one as a group. This is her most recent book, so why not start with it.

  4. The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty - Our last book club selection was Big Little Lies and we all loved it and agreed we would read more by this author.

  5. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell - we all work in an office environment and I figure that we can all identify with this book on some level. Also I must introduce them to Rainbow Rowell - I love her books!

  6. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn - We can read the book and then go see the movie together.

  7. Bumped by Megan McCafferty - For the simple reason that this book is by Megan McCafferty

  8. Thumped by Megan McCafferty - see above

  9. Across the Universe by Beth Revis - I’m pretty sure that half of us already have this book because we planned to read it, but we haven’t read it yet.

  10. All Broke Down by Cora Carmack - We love Cora’s books. We read All Lined Up together and found it to be a lot of fun.

BLURRED LINES by Jen McLaughlin: Available Now!

BLURRED LINES
Out of Line Series #5
by Jen McLaughlin
Publication Date: January 26, 2015 



  BOOK BLURB:  
Once burned… Finding my fiancée naked on my couch might’ve been a good thing, if her ex-boyfriend hadn’t been with her. For the past eight years I’ve been a witness to the power of true love, but after getting burned I’d decided there wasn’t any hope for me finding it for myself. Until I met Noelle Brandt in a hotel bar. Maybe it wasn’t the most romantic meeting, but the moment I met her I knew I had to have her. The more I learn about her, the more I know I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her. Twice shy… I’d already found the love of my life, but I’d lost that love forever. And I’d been lost ever since. But one night a wounded man makes all of that go away. He makes me laugh, live, and feel alive. When he tells me he has no intention of letting me go, I finally begin to believe in the power of true love again. That is, until I find out who he really is…and by then, it’s far too late to correct the mistakes we’ve already made. By the time we both know the truth, the lines have already been blurred beyond recognition.

About ALL PLAYED OUT

First person in her family to go to college? CHECK. Straight A’s? CHECK. On track to graduate early? CHECK. Social life? …..yeah, about that…. With just a few weeks until she graduates, Antonella DeLuca’s beginning to worry that maybe she hasn’t had the full college experience. (Okay... Scratch that. She knows she hasn't had the full college experience). So Nell does what a smart, dedicated girl like herself does best. She makes a "to do" list of normal college activities. Item #1? Hook up with a jock. Rusk University wide receiver Mateo Torres practically wrote the playbook for normal college living. When he’s not on the field, he excels at partying, girls, and more partying. As long as he keeps things light and easy, it's impossible to get hurt... again. But something about the quiet, shy, sexy-as-hell Nell gets under his skin, and when he learns about her list, he makes it his mission to help her complete it. Torres is the definition of confident (And sexy. And wild), and he opens up a side of Nell that she's never known. But as they begin to check off each crazy, exciting, normal item, Nell finds that her frivolous list leads to something more serious than she bargained for. And while Torres is used to taking risks on the field, he has to decide if he's willing to take the chance when it's more than just a game. Together they will have to decide if what they have is just part of the experiment or a chance at something real.  

And don’t miss the first two books in the Rusk University Series…

#HATER by Cambria Hebert: Teaser and Giveaway



#HATER (Hashtag #2)
by Cambria Hebert 
 Publication date: January 12th 2015
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:
It started with unspoken animosity. The bitter bite of jealousy. And now its full blown hate.

It was during my first football game that I first felt the first chill of hate. I looked it right in the eyes and felt its sticky tentacles reach out for me. I’d never experienced something so cold and empty before.

The effect of that look lingered, like an unspoken promise, long after it was gone.

Becoming a couple – becoming the other half of a campus celebrity wasn’t easy. I let down walls guarding my heart and he looked past my glasses and accident prone tendencies. Romeo and I are an unlikely match, a #nerd and a jock. But we made it.

And we’re happy.

Zach doesn’t want us to be happy. He wants Romeo to pay for getting him kicked out of Omega and for the night he spent in jail. He’s going to use anything and everything he can to get his revenge. Including me.

As the weather on campus grows cold and the days become dark, revenge becomes the center of someone’s life and the happiness Romeo and I worked so hard for is threatened.

I can’t help but worry that our love is going to be overshadowed by hate.

I'm currently reading One Last Song by S.K. Falls and it is really good. The main character, Saylor, is unlike any other I've ever read. While the undertones of the storyline are similar to other books I've read, Saylor's condition complicates things in ways I never imagined. I'll have a complete review of One Last Song posted on the blog next week. I hope that you will check it out.

About ONE LAST SONG

I was seven when I swallowed my first needle.

My mom freaked out and rushed me to the emergency room.

She stayed by my side all night.
I never wanted it to end.
When you spend your whole life feeling invisible-when your parents care more about deals and deadlines than they do about you-you find ways of making people take notice. Little things at first. Then bigger. It's scary how fast it grows. Then one day something happens that makes you want to stop. To get better. To be better. And for the first time, you understand what it's like to feel whole, happy . . . loved. For the first time, you love someone back.
For me, that someone was Drew.
