Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills returns with an all-new swoon-fest of a novel about what happens when you look beyond labels and take a chance on love.

Sexy AthleteI bet you…
Penelope GrahamBurn in hell, quarterback. 

The text is random but Penelope figures out exactly who “Sexy Athlete” is. And why she shouldn’t take his wager.

Ryker Voss.
Football star.
Walks on water and God’s gift to women.
Just ask him. 

His bet? He promises Penelope he’ll win her the heart of the guy she’s been crushing on. His plan—good old-fashioned jealousy. Once her crush sees her kissing Ryker, he’ll realize what he’s missing. Sounds legit, right? The only question is…why is Ryker being so nice to her?

Penelope Graham.
Virgin.
Lover of sparkly vampires and calculus.
His mortal enemy.

Penelope knows she shouldn’t trust a jock, but what’s a girl to do when she needs a date to Homecoming? And Ryker’s keeping a secret, another bet, one that could destroy Penelope’s heart forever.

Will the quarterback score the good girl or will his secrets mean everyone loses this game of love?

Can’t Text This by Teagan Hunter [ARC Review]

Genres: Romantic Comedy
Publisher: Independently published
Publication Date: October 9th, 2018

“Hi Monty. Wanna see my python?”

That’s how I ended up in the bathroom of some dive bar with a stranger.

Me, Monty Andrews, the quintessential virgin girl next door.

I was so out of my element, but there was no denying our explosive attraction, even via text.

Commence Operation Bang Each Other Out of Our Systems, because that was all it was—unfinished business.

I had no intention of falling back into the sheets with the tattooed, muscly, dirty-in-the-best-kind-of-way single dad over and over again…but I did.

Everything was going great—until we discovered I was his son’s teacher.

#BiVisibilityDay: Bi Representation in Books

Bi-Rep.png

Happy Bi Visibility Day to all my fellow bi-spectrum readers! Today is one of my gem days throughout the year that get slightly giddy over because today’s purpose is to spread awareness about bisexuality. And in true Sam fashion, I thought I could spread the awareness through my favorite medium of choice: books.

All the books below are books I or my friends have loved that contain amazing Bi-rep in them. All of the characters within these books are either referred to as bi in the novel itself or has been confirmed as being attracted to both male and female genders.

BLOGOWEEN 2018 [Announcement, Hosts + Prompts]

What even is an intro when you have Blogoween to talk about?!

If you have been floating around the book blog community as well as the bookish community on Twitter, you would have more than likely have seen news that an amazing bookish event is taking place for the month of October for Book bloggers and if you follow me on twitter (which I highly think you should because I’m a meme/gif loving gem, *coughs* @sammers65 *coughs*) you’d know I’m pretty stupid excited for it. A bunch of my friends have already presented the event on their blogs and today is my turn to spread pumpkin spice and spooky info with all of you glorious story tellers!

WHAT IS BLOGOWEEN?

Funny you should mention it! Blogoween is basically the Halloween/Autumn version of Blogmas! If you don’t know what Blogmas is, do not fear! I have all the answers (well some of them, I’m still trying to figure out how to grow money on trees)! Blogmas–or Blogoween in this instance, is basically a month-long event co-organized by the lovely Continue reading “BLOGOWEEN 2018 [Announcement, Hosts + Prompts]”
