RELEASE BLITZ: Excerpt of Fall by Kristen Callihan

 

The first time I met Jax Blackwood things went a little sideways.

In my defense, I didn’t know he was Jax Blackwood—who expects a legendary rock star to be shopping for groceries? More importantly, a blizzard was coming and he was about to grab the last carton of mint-chocolate chip.

Still, I might have walked away, but then he smugly dared me to try and take the coveted ice cream. So I kissed him. And distracted that mint-chip right out of his hands.

Okay, it was a dirty move, but desperate times and all that. Besides, I never expected he’d be my new neighbor.

An annoying neighbor who takes great pleasure in reminding me that I owe him ice cream but would happily accept more kisses as payment. An irresistible neighbor who keeps me up while playing guitar naked–spectacularly naked–in his living room.

Clearly, avoidance is key. Except nothing about Jax is easy to ignore—not the way he makes me laugh, or that his particular brand of darkness matches mine, or how one look from him melts me faster than butter under a hot sun.

Neither of us believes in love or forever. Yet we’re quickly becoming each other’s addiction. But we could be more. We could be everything.

All we have to do is trust enough to fall.

-EXCERPT-

I clear my throat. “While I was eating my ice cream—”

He snorts, but remains tense. Continue reading “RELEASE BLITZ: Excerpt of Fall by Kristen Callihan”

Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon TBR

Is this impulsive?

Yes, yes it is.

Am I staying on brand?

Um–yes why yes I am.

So if you haven’t noticed by the title, I have decided albeit impulsively–to participate in this years Dewey’s 24 hour read-a-thon! If you don’t know what this read-a-thon is you can check out there website HERE for all the glorious information and to sign up. But essentially, it’s a readathon where readers all over the world dedicate 24 hours at the same time to reading and talking about what we are reading! There are mini-challenges that a slew of amazing people across different mediums and social medias will be hosting; and over all it is just one heck of a time where the TBR gets slain…or in my case attempts to get slain.

As I live close to the Louisiana border in Texas, this time around my start time is 7am this Saturday. If you are participating and don’t know when your start time for your city is, you can check out this page to find out!!

But without further ado, this is my tentative TBR for this Saturday! Will I get to them all? Probably not, but dang flapjacks I’m gonna try!  Continue reading “Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon TBR”

Dear Jane by Kendall Ryan [ARC Review]

Genres: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Independently published
Publication Date: October 15th, 2018
Source: Inksplinger PR
Format: eARC
Rating:fangirlstarsfangirlstarsfangirlstars

I broke her heart ten years ago and left town.

She hates me, and rightly so. It doesn’t matter that the rest of the country loves me, that I’m a starting quarterback with a multimillion-dollar contract. Because when I look in the mirror, all I see is a failure who was too young—and too afraid—to fight for what I wanted.

But I’m not that guy anymore, and all I need is one shot to convince her.

***
He has no idea what happened after he left. And now I’m supposed to work alongside him like we don’t have this huge, messy history?

But I’m older now, wiser, and I won’t let anything stand in my way of doing a good job for this league. Not even one overpaid, arrogant player who thinks we’re going to kiss and make up.

News flash, buddy: I am over you.

REVIEW

I’m happy to say Kendall Ryan has become one of those one click authors for me. In this new story, Ryan brings us a fast paced, steamy second chance romance set in the football world. For Jane, football is etched into her blood, so it wasn’t a shock when she fell in Continue reading “Dear Jane by Kendall Ryan [ARC Review]”

Love, Sincerely, Yours by Sara Ney & Meghan Quinn [ARC Review + Excerpt]

Genres: Contemporary Romance

Dear Mister…**strike out** no, too formal.

Hey there sweet cheeks *strike out* no, too forward.

To whom it may concern,

Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.

I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?

So here I am, being honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.

I like you so much it’s clouding my judgment and making me do things I never would sober. Like write this letter.

I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. Your bark is worse then your bite, and you don’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.

For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.

And as long as we’re being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you who’s boss.

Love,

Sincerely,

Yours.

#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.
