Sorry for neglecting you all I’ve been busy with the day job (even worked Christmas day) I’ve also been reading lots, including some proof reads!

Coming out this month is the Dragon school series by Sarah K L Wilson, all are available to pre-order on Amazon and are a great read.

I had the honour of proof reading books 1, 2 and 3. You’ll all love them!

In 2017 I read 115 books, how many did you read?
I’ve set my target as 50 for this year as I won’t have as much free time to read due to my job.

***SYNOPSIS***
You know those people? You do. We all know someone like it.
Those people that aren’t happy unless there is drama in their lives. Unless everyone’s attention and focus is completely and undividedly on them.
The ones you roll your eyes at because they’re so obvious, so annoyingly transparent and clearly lacking some desperately needed honesty in their lives.
Yep. Those people.
But, what happens when the unreality becomes startlingly real?
What happens when you realise that you are one of them?
Compulsive liar. Check
Sympathy whore. Check
Drowning in disillusion. Double check.
I say I’m dying. They say I’m lying.
I say I’m innocent. They say otherwise.
Like the little boy that cried wolf, I’m no longer believed.
But just like the lessons learned from that story – they’re about to receive an education.
A wake up call, if you like.
There’s no reasoning with crazy and we’re all about to learn that the hard way.

Pre-order via this link:   www.amazon.co.uk/Cant-fix-crazy-K-Duggsy-ebook/dp/B0774V47DH/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1510940006&sr=8-3&keywords=can%27t+fix+crazy

I was lucky enough to get to be a beta reader for this book.

I found the first chapter a little hard to read as it is from the P.O.V of someone with depression, (I have battled depression for several years.) K.A. Duggsy masters the art of writing this subject, it was so well written at times it actually felt like I was reading my own thoughts/feelings.
As the story continued I went onto a roller coaster of emotion. I laughed at several parts, so hard at one part my dog glared at me as I woke him up. (Want to know the part? Read the book and find out!)
This roller coaster of emotion also took me through rage, sadness, loss, regret/remorse and happiness.
I thought I’d figured several of the parts of this book out, oh how wrong I was. There are so many twists and turns that you just can’t put it down as you NEED to carry on reading to find out what happens.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, a must read of 2017

The Tainted Accords – Kelly St Clare

Hi all,
Sorry for being AWOL for awhile, I’ve been busy looking after my mum after a spinal operation.

I’ve read a few books these last few weeks (87 so far this year!)

One series I read was The Tainted Accords by Kelly St Clare.
I read the first one via The Marked By Fate box set which is due out on Tuesday! (24th Oct 2017)
I was instantly hooked at the idea of two planets that are side by side, one incredibly hot and one freezing cold. Each can only exist with the presence of the other.

ks

The first book is Fantasy of Frost.
I must say I thoroughly enjoyed in and read all 4 within 3 days and then read the novella “Sin” after.

Full of secrets, action, destiny and betrayal and love.
I highly recommend you read this. The characters and storyline are amazing. get yours here:

So go have a look, you won’t regret it.

If there’s no tomorrow – Jennifer L Armentrout

Hi all,
I recently read If there’s no tomorrow. I absolutely loved this book (then again I don’t think there’s a JLA book I’ve read and not enjoyed!)

itnt

Lena has always felt immortal. But one night can change everything.

Lena and Sebastian have been close for as long as anyone can remember. Best friends, even. But secretly Lena has been wanting something more—Sebastian could be more than a friend, if only Lena could figure out how to convince him that they could, and should be together.

But in a single night, after a single party, everything changes and suddenly Lena isn’t thinking about her relationship with Sebastian at all.

The only thing she’s thinking about is trying to piece together what happened that night, and how she was the sole survivor in an accident that left 4 of her friends dead.

Even as her friends and family try to rally around her, Lena pushes them away as the memory of the accident begins to resurface. How will they ever forgive her for what she did? How will Sebastian forgive her?

And how will she ever forgive herself?

This book was a emotional roller coaster, one minute I was smiling, the next tears were streaming down my face.
Incredibly well written, it addresses issues such as lone survivor guilt and grief in a sensitive yet informative matter.
I loved the story line and the relationship between all characters and highly recommend this book.

The Bride Series – S Doyle

Hi all,
Last night/today I’ve been reading The Bride, The Wife and The Lover. Books 1, 2 and 3 in The Bride series by S Doyle. I am now about to start the 2 novellas (The baby  and The Homecoming).

tb

Ellie 

So here’s the deal. I’m sixteen and I’m getting married. Super weird, I know. 

My dad is a cattle rancher in Montana. Or he was, until he died suddenly, leaving me an orphan (which is still a thing). I’m sixteen months away from being a legal adult, so I have two choices. 

Foster home, or married. To Jake Talley. The foreman of the ranch and my best friend. 

It’s legal. It solves all my problems. Except now I’m living with Riverbend’s hottest cowboy – my husband (in name only of course) – and I’m still in high school. Trust me, no one wants to date Weird Married Ellie. 

But it’s cool. All we have to do is wait it out until I’m eighteen and we’ll get a divorce. Then Jake and I will go back to being normal. 

We’ve got this. Right? 

Jake 

I’m twenty-six, and I never saw this coming. Married. To a kid I’ve known her whole life. But there was no way in hell I was going to let her live at a foster home, instead of at the ranch where she belongs. 

Sure we’re married but it’s not real. Just a piece of paper. My girlfriend is furious but I know I’m doing the right thing – for Ellie. For sixteen months, it’s me and her against the world – until the divorce. 

No big deal. 

Or is it?

This story line really appealed to me as it’s not one I’ve come across before. I loved the relationship between Ellie and Jake and how they overcame battles and I really enjoyed learning about cattle ranching.
The books are quite short and easily ready in one sitting.
A great easy read that’s also fairly informative on different subjects.

In her words – London Casey, Jaxson Kidman

Hi all,
I came across this book on my Facebook news feed and after reading the blurb, I knew I had to read it.

CASS: I always remember Scarlett as the one night stand that got away from me. I fell in love; she took off. It feels like a lifetime ago now though. I traded in my guitar for a needle, working at St. Skin, bringing other people’s stories to life through tattoos. Though I still think about her, I know I’ll never see her again. But I never knew that after she left our one night, she left pregnant. She never told me. I only find out when her best friend comes crashing into my life and my heart with a baby in her arms – my daughter. With my life turned upside down, I struggle to figure out what it all means: being a father, and finding a new love growing in the place reserved for the woman I lost but thought of as my forever love. It feels crazy – and wrong – but I don’t care.

DIEM: A car accident takes my best friend’s life and now I’m raising her baby. I’ve fought hard to do everything to keep Paisley as my own, but I know her father is out there and he deserves to know the truth. The last thing I expect to find is the sexiest man I’ve ever met – complete with muscle, tattoos, and an attitude to match. I’m not going to force him to be a father and I’m certainly not going to force him to get close to me. But I need the help. Meeting Cass was supposed to make life easier. As I fall for him, I realise everything is becoming more complicated.

This is the first book in the St. Skin series and after reading this I can’t wait.
I loved how it was told from both Cass and Diems’ perspectives and also how it flicked between past and present. Unlike some books it was easy to understand when in the timeline we were.
The characters were easy to get to know and were very likeable.
At times it had me in tears which I wasn’t expecting but I fully enjoyed every second of the story. There were some bits I could guess and others which were really unexpected.
A really easy and enjoyable read.
Highly recommended.
