Spring Fling Giveaway Hop

Decided to go back through the books I've loved recently for this giveaway!

Totally LOVED Shark Bait and can't wait to read Other Fish In The Sea.

Giving away BOTH of these ebooks!
One winner gets both.

 Previously homeschooled Camie Ramsey is being shoved into the shark-infested waters of public high school, where even helium filled, penguin bespeckled arm floaties likely won’t help keep her inexperienced, fifteen-year old head above water in that rip current of hormones and emotions.

Camie’s worldly wisdom might be severely lacking (i.e., the closest she’s come to being kissed was sitting too close to the TV whilst Jake Ryan leaned in to give Samantha that fateful 16th birthday kiss), but she does understand her only hope for survival is if she’s thrown some kind of “social” life preserver before she sinks like a freaking rock. However, what will her fate be when she endeavors to flag down the only lifeguard on duty, the enormously popular and ridiculously beautiful Tristan Daniels? The most sought after and virtually most unattainable guy in school who not only makes Camie’s heart flatline on a recurring basis, he’s also the one guy who seemingly doesn’t know she exists.

Feeling like an inept piece of chum that could ultimately be swallowed by Jaws, can Camie get Tristan to rescue her from floundering in the treacherous deep, or is she destined to be Shark Bait?

In Shark Bait, readers everywhere met and fell in love with the new girl, Camie Ramsey, and swooned over her sure to be future husband, Tristan Daniels. Now, in The Other Fish in the Sea, the long anticipated second installment of the Grab Your Pole series by Jenn Cooksey, Camie and Tristan are back, but so are their friends!

So, find a breathing apparatus and shimmy into your scuba gear, because it's finally time to dive deeper into the lives of the GYP gang, but be warned, it's a big world out there and an even bigger ocean where danger might be lurking around the next corner and realistically, anything could happen.

Twisted Perfection by Abbi Glines ~ Review

Source:  Received eBook from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Book Description:

Life outside of her house was a new experience for Della Sloane. The dark secrets of her past weren’t something she ever intended to share with anyone. They would never understand. No one would ever get close enough to find out. There was always a chance she’d go crazy sooner than they expected…

Woods Kerrington had never been one to be attracted to fragile females. They seemed like too much work. He wasn’t in it for the work just the pleasure. A night full of naughty fun had been exactly what was on his mind when he’d laid eyes on the hot little number that didn’t know how to pump gas and needed some help.

What he didn’t know was she was as fragile as they came.
The carefree girl who spoke her mind and didn’t care what the world thought of her was more breakable than he could ever imagine…

My Thoughts:

3 stars - Love Woods so much but Della didn't add up for me

I love Woods.  This is the third book that Woods has been in.  He was a secondary character in Fallen Too Far and Never Too Far.  While I wasn't his fan in the first, I learned to love him in NTF.  I was so excited to see him get his own story.  He needed that.  His father has set him up to marry some "name" to help business and I just couldn't deal with that.  I really wanted him to fall in love.  And he does in Twisted Perfection.

There was so much I loved about this story that it truly pains me to only give it only three stars.  I loved how Woods figures out how to stand up to his dad.  I loved how he figured out what he wanted and went for it.  I loved how the characters I loved so much from FTF and NTF where there.  I loved that there was some serious steam in this book.  I loved how the story was never slow and held my attention.  Loved the ending, right up to the cliffhanger.  Read it in about a day.

I also loved Woods and Della together.  They are so good together.  He silences her nightmares and she empowers him with the strength to make his own choices.  They bring out the best in each other.  They belong together, truly.

So now, you're wondering what's up with only three starts?  It's the details of Della.  She's sweet and broken but she is a puzzle that doesn't make sense to me.  Is my math teacher showing?  Maybe.  I can't really say too much about these things without being spoilery but let me say this.  Someone who has experienced as much emotional trauma as Della has doesn't leave her support system and venture out into the world alone.  Della believes that she will one day loose it and be totally crazy.  That is clear from the start.  Why would she leave her support system and why would her BFF let her leave?  I don't get that.

Other details bug me too.  I'm left wondering about how her father who was raised in foster care ever had an insurance policy large enough to support both her and her mom for years and years after his death without Della's mom needing to work.  That stopped me short.  Della's behavior around guys she'd just met was hard for me to get too.  Other things I just can't say without giving too much away.

Some of this, I could overlook.  But when it all added up to Della, I just didn't get her.  I wanted to.  I wanted her to be this sweet broken girl that Woods needs to take care of but it just didn't work for me.  Will I read book two for them?  Yes.  I love their story even if the details bug me.

* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Reviewed this one yesterday and today I have a teaser for you.

Red and yellow leaves litter the entire front yard, and the poignant smell of autumn is everywhere.  I breathe it in, smiling to myself.  Everyone knows this is the best season.  I mean, winter is all about snow and it's common knowledge that snow stops being cute after the third time shoveling out the driveway.  Spring is okay, although I'm mostly in it for the Girl Scout Cookies, and summer is too much fighting over which half-naked girl to flirt with next to be even halfway enjoyable.  (Kindle location 18)

I love the way West sees things.  Especially that snow comment.   I'm not sure it took me till the third time to stop thinking snow was cute.  Hehe.

What you think of my teaser?  Have one for me?  Leave me a comment.

Click to Subscribe by L. M. Augustine ~ Review

Available May 9th 

Source:  Received ARC eBook from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Book Description:

135,789. That’s how many subscribers sixteen-year-old West Ryder has on his web vlog series. But he only has eyes for one of them.

As one of the internet’s most prestigious video bloggers, West talks about high school relationships under the name “Sam Green.” As far as he knows, no one from school, not even his best friend, Cat, has seen his videos. But the highlight of the whole thing is Harper Knight, who comments every day at exactly 2:02 in the afternoon. He doesn’t know anything about her aside from the occasional deep philosophical messaging on why pizza tastes so delicious, but as stupid as it sounds, he might be falling for her. So when they finally agree to meet in real life, West’s hope for romance seems more and more in reach. But that all changes as soon as he arrives at their meeting spot and sees Cat walking toward him, wearing the same “I <3 Sam Green” T-shirt Harper promised she'd have on.

To his alarm, West realizes he is falling in love with the best friend who has always been a sister to him.

 My Thoughts:


3 stars - Banter keeps the pages flipping in this cute read

When the author approached me to review this  book, I was interested.  Vlogs? Meeting peeps online?  Loving your best friend? Although, my reading schedule is laughable at best, I agreed.  I'm still glad I did.

I love West.  I totally LOVED reading from his POV.  He's so funny.  His believe that his vlogs are secret just crack me up.  Yeah, right.  I really wish we had had more dialogue from his vlogs.  We got a couple of the serious ones but I would have loved to hear more of the fun ones.  I had hoped that the online aspect of this book would be more.  

It was obvious to me how West felt, even if the boy struggled to figure it out himself.  I so love how he figured it out his feelings.  It was so male! He couldn't lose her.  I loved that.

Cat is so fun and brave.  I loved her.  She's in love with her best friend but is scared to tell him.  They have the best relationship.  Who would want to risk that?  She finally does and I love her for it.  It really looks like she's lost the friendship in her reveal too.  I love how she doesn't turn away from her feelings but stands strong, fighting for what she wants.  But she isn't needy or whiny.  She's strong.  Loved that about her.

I do have mixed feeling about this book.  On one side, there is this super fun banter between West and Cat or Sam and Harper.  They are so totally fun to hang out with, cracking me up all the time.  The smiles and laughs were West's way of dealing with the sucky things in his life.  He has more than his fair share of those.  Which brings me to the other side of this book.  West is dealing with the death of his mother.  His father has checked out, which be understandable considering how she died.  But West's dad checked out 6 months before she died.  We never find out why.  Just that he quite his job, started drinking and became a useless lump.  I don't get that.  It's never resolved.  Nor is the relationship between father and son.  I don't like loose ends.  They make me uncomfortable as a reader.  

I read an ARC copy and there were a lot of little things that I hope were fixed in the final copy.  Cars that changed types and jobs that were or weren't there...but I'm assuming those issues are fixed for the May 9th release.

Despite the loose ends (and there are lots of them), the pages flipped quickly and I read this in about a day.  The fun moments were just so addictive.  I wish I had beta read this one, though.  I really think some good feedback before this one hit the world would have made it so much better.

Cover Reveal ~ Until I Break by M. Leighton

Available May 14th!

Book Description:

In love, sometimes what you fear most is exactly what you need.

Laura Drake is an author.  She writes bestselling paranormal romances that continue to top the charts.  She is sharp.  She is confident.  She is in control.

And she doesn’t exist.

Samantha Jansen is the woman behind the wig, the woman most of the world doesn’t know exists.  She is shy.  She is insecure.  She is nothing like her main character or her alter ego.  She is scarred—deeply scarred—by a past she can’t let go of and a present she can’t make peace with.

Samantha’s dreams are consumed by one man, the broken hero from her books.  Mason Strait is both her wildest fantasy and her most terrifying nightmare.

When Samantha meets Alec Brand, a corporate consultant, it is as though Mason has come to life.  Alec is handsome to a fault, as elegant as he is arrogant, and more intense than any man has a right to be.

Samantha is soon sucked into a world that mirrors the fiction she writes.  Just like her main character, Daire Kirby, Samantha finds herself unable to resist the forbidden lure of Alec.  And just like Daire, she also finds that she is faced with taking a chance on a man who could either set her free or destroy her.

The scale tilts toward destruction when Samantha finds out that Alec is as much a work of fiction as Mason.  And he has scars of his own, scars that could ruin them both.


“I’m not the warm and fuzzy type, Samantha.  It’s not my intention to make you feel love.  I don’t have that kind of emotion in me.  But there are other things I can give you, things I can make you feel.  Really feel.”  His eyes are hooded as he looks down at me and takes one more step forward.  This time, I don’t back up.  “Excitement,” he says, reaching up to wind one long, red curl around his finger.  When his eyes meet mine, I feel like he’s doing the same thing to me—winding me around his finger.  “Anticipation.  Desire.  Warmth.  I can make you feel very, very warm.”
As though his words alone can evoke the sensation, I feel hot blood rush to the surface of my skin and pool in the lowest part of my belly.
“You might even feel a little fear,” he continues softly.  “But even that can be intoxicating in its own way.”
About the author:
I was born and raised in the United States, and I’ve lived in several of the fabulous fifty. Though I currently live in the deep South, I spent much of my childhood up North and hope to return there one day. A few other things about me: I believe that sometimes you have to look really, REALLY hard to find the good in people, but it's there. I believe that I'm shrinking (I swear five years ago I was two inches taller). I believe my husband is quite possibly one of the most amazing men in the entire world (I can't be sure because I haven't met all of them). I believe coffee and chocolate, when combined, could be the basis for world peace. I believe that Jesus rocks and communism doesn’t. I believe that white makes me look fat and black collects lint. I believe summer's too hot, winter's too cold and fall was made for football. I like dogs better than cats and the first movie in a trilogy is invariably the best. But most of all, I believe that love conquers all

EEP! Cannot wait for this one!!!

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  Make sure to checkout her post with links to all the other participates.

For review:

Stripped By Brooklyn Skye
(For upcoming tour post - thank you)

College freshman Quinn Montgomery will do anything to avoid the mistake her sister made—killing herself over a boy. But when she is forced into nude modeling at a local college to support her family after a bankruptcy, she begins to crack, just enough to let Torrin, the university’s top varsity oarsman, see that the real Quinn is not as feisty and unapproachable as she wants everyone to think. But letting someone in comes at a steep cost and, it turns out, Torrin is connected to Quinn’s family in more ways than she could ever imagine.

Fuzzwippers Make Good Helpers 
by Marilynn Halas
(Received from publisher - thank you)

This is for an upcoming jr. reviewer feature that I will be starting with reviews from Baby Bastian.  This is first book from a publisher but his first review will be one of his personal favorites...coming soon.

In this fourth book in the series, Elizabeth and Fuzzina are enjoying themselves on a fine spring day when they stumble upon an overgrown ruin of a garden. It doesn’t seem possible to bring it back to life, but when the call goes out to earthly and Fuzzwipper helpers, it seems nothing is impossible.

Emancipating Andie by Priscilla Glenn
(For an upcoming tour - thank you)

Ever since the one time Andie Weber threw caution to the wind - and paid the price for it - she’s learned that it’s safer and smarter to live life playing by the rules. Now she’s got a great apartment, a steady job, and a wonderful boyfriend in Colin; he’s sweet, stable, and essentially perfect – except maybe for the fact that his best friend is Chase.

Chase McGuire lives his carefree, unstructured life strictly for himself. Dripping sarcasm and oozing wit, he refuses to censor his feelings or opinions for anyone, making no apologies for either and wearing his abrasiveness like a badge of honor. No one has ever gotten under Andie’s skin the way Chase does – and vice versa.

So when Andie and Chase find themselves forced to take a two-day road trip together, they are already dreading an inevitable all-out war. But as the trip progresses, and the undeniable friction that has always defined their relationship slowly begins to wear away their preconceived notions of each other, Andie and Chase discover they both have a lot to learn about life, courage, happiness, and the age-old battle between logic and love.

Tall, Dark and Divine (Bagging a Greek God #1) by Jenna Bennett
(From the publisher- thank you)

Being the Greek god of love doesn’t mean you believe—or want—anything to do with that sappy emotion. Sure, Eros runs his matchmaking business, Made in Heaven, but finding his own love has never been part of the equation. When he spots the sweet baker who works across the street, he vows to match her with someone else before she stirs his sullen heart.

Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right. What she needs is Mr. Right Here, Right Now, and this so-called “Greek God” she’s heard is on the rebound sounds like the perfect kind of distraction. But picking up the bitter workaholic is easier said than done… especially when he seems unreasonably determined to match her with someone else.

Can a woman looking for love—and the matchmaking god who wants her to find it with someone who isn’t him—have a shot at a happy ending? May the best god—or mortal—win.

No Attachments by Tiffany King
(From the author - thank you)

** Recommended for ages 17+ due to sexual situations, language and mature subject matter **

Ashton Garrison walked away from a privileged life in order to hide from the one thing she's not willing to face. She knows she left behind a trail of pain, but in the long run, her betrayal will hurt less than the truth. She now has one goal: Live life to the fullest with no regrets and no attachments. She has high hopes that a move to new surroundings will provide the escape she desires, but what Ashton doesn't count on is how fate always seems to find a way to screw up any good plan. Sometimes, when love comes knocking, the pull is too strong not to answer. Suddenly, what she thought she wanted to escape from is what Ashton now wants more than anything.

Nathan Lockton has one mission: find his target and complete the task he was hired to do—no attachments and no emotion necessary. He's done it over and over again. What he thought was a typical lost-and-found job has turned into a life examining moment as Nathan is forced to deal with something he has always ignored--his feelings. Now faced with a decision, Nathan must choose to either follow his heart or complete the job.

Love can come when you least expect it. The question is: If the odds are stacked against you, how far are you willing to go for the one you love?



Suddenly Royal by Nicole Chase
(Picked it up for $.99)

Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working toward a master’s degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it’s to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed.

Alex D’Lynsal is trying to keep his name clean. As crown prince of Lilaria, he’s had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women—especially women in the public eye. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She’s stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone’s front-page news.

While Sam tries to navigate the new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders.

Awakened (The Guardian Legacy, #1) by Ednah Walter
(Picked this one up Free)

Most teens turn sixteen and get the license to drive, but Lil Falcon gets the license to kill demons. Orphaned as a child and raised by an eccentric grandfather, Lil is concerned with surviving high school and is unaware that she's a Guardian-a being with super powers charged with killing demons and protecting humanity. When she meets Bran, a mysterious boy with amazing abilities, his psi energy unlocks her latent powers. But Bran has a secret that can ruin their growing relationship, and the truth she discovers may destroy everything she believes in unless she finds the right balance between love and sacrifice.

Of Siliver and Beasts by Trisha Wolfe ~ Blitz and Giveaway

“What’s your rank, baby blue eyes?” the guy asks, pushing off his cot and stalking toward the prince. Everything in me screams to act, but I don’t want to declare alliances this early on. Not without understanding the dynamic of placements and bonds already formed among these people. But I’ll not let this hulk of a man harm the prince. I brace my heel against the wall, ready to push off and lunge. Prince Caben rises to his feet, slowly turning to face him. He straightens his spine, squaring his shoulders. “I don’t have one. And my name is Payne. Not ‘baby blue eyes’, meathead.” Big guy laughs, his husky voice bounces off the rock walls. “I’m Crew”—he beats his chest hard once, like a barbarian—“and I’ve won three fights. I’ll win the next two and be the one awarded the freedom ring.” He leans down toward Prince Caben, leveling their faces. “So don’t even think about you or your princess over there walking out of here. I’m ranked as a Colossal. The strongest Colossal in Bax’s league.” Princess? I nearly scoff. Then I realize what the problem with Crew is: he feels threatened by Prince Caben. That revelation almost makes me laugh out right. What does a big stack of muscles like Crew have to fear from the prince? The other prisons slowly circle around the stand-off in the center of the cell. Tension thickens the musty air. It coils around my spine, tightening my muscles. If I allow the fight to continue without interruption, will the guards stop it? They’d want their fighters in pristine shape, wouldn’t they? Prince Caben doesn’t back away from Crew. Instead, he moves into his space. I roll my eyes. Stupid, conceited man. “Freedom ring?” the prince questions. “As in, there’s a chance to leave?” He rubs his chin, and I notice the dark shadow of facial hair that has darkened his features overnight. “Is there a season that has to be won, or can someone gain five wins during their entire imprisonment?” Crew’s eyebrows pinch together. He’s clearly despondent that he hasn’t succeeded in intimidating the prince. “We’re in a season right now, you weakling. If you don’t win—you’re dead. Which by the looks of you, will happen in your first match.” Prince Caben nods, as if he’s simply piecing together a jigsaw puzzle and not being told of his demise. “What is the cuff for?” He points to the iron clamp around Crew’s wrist. “It’s our biometric monitor.” Crew shoves the cuff up close to the prince’s face. “See those three blue lights? Those are my wins. When the fifth lights up, I’m outta’ here.” “Has anyone ever won the freedom ring before?” Prince Caben asks. Crew’s massive arms tremble. “No,” he grinds out. “But I will.” He cocks his cuffed hand back, then sends a blow to Prince Caben’s chin. Hell. I’m up and racing across the cell before the prince hits the ground. Crew spots me from his peripheral. He turns and swipes the air. I duck, roll, and come up behind him. I jump on the cot and leap onto his back. “You squirrely little ...” he mumbles, trying to reach over his shoulders to get a hold on me. Tightening my arms around his thick neck, I squeeze. He gasps for air, and rams my back into the wall. I wheeze as the air whooshes from my lungs, pain splintering through my already bruised chest. But I hold tight, bearing down harder, and cut off his supply of oxygen. Finally, I feel Crew weaken beneath my hold. He drops to his knees, and I only release him once I’m sure he’s knocked out. Stepping around the now limp Crew, I glance at all the wide eyes studying me, and meet the prince’s. Fury ignites his stormy blue irises. He picks himself off the floor and heads toward one of the side chambers, throwing the tattered material aside as he stalks inside. I follow after him. When I step inside the tiny, dank room, my eyes trail Prince Caben as he paces. He reaches each side of the small chamber with three quick strides. Back and forth. On his third round, I open my mouth and get out a single syllable before he holds up a hand, halting me. He drives his hand through his dark hair. “Thank you for making me look like a spineless jerk.” He shakes his head and faces me. Taken aback, I say, “This is my duty to protect—” “No. In your country it was your duty to guard me. In my world and here”—he opens his arms wide—“a man fights his own battles. He does not depend on a woman to fight them for him. You just disgraced me.” Fire simmers in my core. “I’m still assigned as your protector no matter what realm we inhabit, Your High—” I stop myself before addressing him by title out of habit. “Your pride is polluting your reasoning.” He laughs. “Yes, well. Thanks to your show out there, I no longer have my pride to worry about.”
