Holidays conjure up many thoughts- long, chilly nights, snuggled up by the fire, bare feet tucked under the one you love. Some are hallmarks of summer when skin is warmed by more than the sun. There is the after Thanksgiving dinner nightcap, as the smooth, sultry burn of whiskey warms your chest, rendering your limbs heavy or include lazy kisses and wandering hands beneath your best dress on a romantic Valentine's Day date.
But sometimes, Grandma gets boozed up and passes out at the table, your brother gets caught rubbing one out under the fireworks, your kids catch mommy kissing Santa (and not on the lips), your special new toy winds up in the wrong gift bag, a goat steals and wears your sexy new thong and watching the ball drop takes on a whole new meaning.
In other words, the holidays can be magical, but sometimes, they're also just f*cking awkward.

A Special Foreword written by USA Today Bestselling Author, Tara Sivec's dog, Fat Ralph!
“I bet I could make you fall in love in a week.” The offer seals Scott Russell’s fate.
After a bitter betrayal and an ugly divorce, the detective is forced to make a fresh start. His new position in a quiet suburb should be a walk in the park compared to his years in Chicago. However, he quickly learns that small towns come with their own issues, with citizens who are slow to forgive and even slower to forget.
The town’s wealthy and reclusive author is a mystery to most. To Scott, she’s just another nameless girl on the train. With a reserved smile and shoes worth more than a month’s rent, his only concern is she might be out of his league.
“I can give you seven days, but not my heart.” The acceptance is one more in a string of lies.
Celeste Smythe doesn’t believe in love at first sight. Relationships take time and sometimes even that isn’t enough. Not with the secrets she harbors in her guarded heart. Yet fate keeps pushing her toward the handsome and absurdly persistent man, and resisting may be more than she can endure, no matter the risks.
When the week is over, Scott may think he knows her. Celeste may know she loves him. But when the truth is revealed about the town’s most talked about citizen, he may discover he’s put more than his heart on the line
Jenni Moen lives in her hometown in Oklahoma with her husband and three crazy, exuberant kids who have the potential to burn the house down at any moment.
When she's not chauffeuring kids around town, performing her mom duties as a short order cook and maid, or vacuuming for her fastidious husband, she hammers away at her keyboard. Sometimes that means she's up to no good. But every now and then a new book is born.

I was a pawn.
Weak and someone easily manipulated.
To be played with as he saw fit.
YOU shone light in my now dark world.
It was YOU who made me smile.
For the first time in this game, I had hope.
All because of YOU.
The more powerful pieces on the board, however, were a threat to YOU and me.
They would win at any cost.
Two kings ruling with an iron fist.
Allies or opponents, it was hard to tell.
YOU promised to save me.
Told me we would win.
But then I was on the wrong side of the board.
This isn't YOU, baby.
And I don't know what to do.
The game is almost over and I'm counting on YOU.
This Isn’t You, Baby is a dark romance. Strong sexual themes, excessive drug use, and violence, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to dark themes, then this story is not for YOU.
This story will make YOU smile.
This story will make YOU angry.
This story will make YOU crazy.
I hope YOU love it, baby

Books #1 and #2 in the Silence series have been about
Oakley Benson, and now in Book #3 we meet
Oakley's brother Jasper. Jasper Dane has always
tried to live up to the expectation of protecting his family, more so with what
happened to his sister Oakley and as he grew older, he put away his playboy
ways. Jasper married his college sweetheart Abby Dane, though life wasn't always roses as she cheated on him in
college and slept with his best friend. Jasper decided to forgive Abby, and they went on to marry one another.
Life has been good or, so Jasper thought
with Abby getting her career on track. That is until he realizes that their relationship hasn't been as solid lately and
Abby is always working late or canceling
on them to go out with her work colleagues. Jasper starts to get worried and
suspicious that Abby is cheating on him.
One thing leads to another and on a whim Jasper plans a romantic surprise weekend away, though it will be him
who gets a surprise when he catches Abby with a co-worker. Needing time to
chill, Jasper goes and gets drunk and ends up sleeping with Holly - his
friend's sister. Next thing we know,
Abby is back saying she is pregnant. Will Jasper take Abby back now she
is pregnant? What will happen though when
his one-night stand ends with the same result? Is Jasper the father of both babies or
just one? Will this mean he will finally
get the family he has always wanted, but with which woman? As a fan of Cocktail Sausages, I thought that this book
would be like a romantic comedy due to the title - however it isn't. Players, Bumps,
and Cocktail Sausages is one big cluster of family and friendship drama with
the odd funny moment.
After reading Book #3,
though the Silence series can be read as standalone I am looking forward to reading
Books 1 and 2.
Back when New Adult was still a twinkle in
most people's eyes and the majority of the world had not yet heard of it,
except book bloggers of course. Molly
McAdams was one of the first New Adult authors that I had discovered, and I fell in love with her work, and to this day, I still support her
books. In her book From Ashes, we met
Cassidy who had gotten a black eye from her boyfriend at the time and Detective
Connor Green was called to the scene, and the two got pretty cozy. Of
course, we know that Cassidy ended up with Gage and went off to live their
belated HEA. Did you ever wonder what
happened to Detective Connor Green?
Needing Her by Molly McAdams is his story. After the incident and Cassidy
moving away, Connor went into a zombie-like stage and moved back home and ended
up next-door neighbors with his best
friend's younger sister. Maci Price hasn't had much experience in the dating
world even though she is in her early 20's. That's what you get though for having
four older brothers and a Dad and no female role-model in her life. During the book, though, we see that Maci and Connor are
two people who love pranks and set out each day trying to outsmart the other.
While this is happening, the pair starts
spending more time together and of course you can guess what's going to happen.
Can the couple though keep it a secret from Maci's brothers as she knows it
will be short-lived and ruined if they find out?
What will happen though when Connor decides to prove to Maci's family that he
loves her? Will it backfire or will the
head of the Price family stand up for his little girl? Though Needing Her is considered a Novella, I will warn you that this is, in fact, a full-length size book at over
250+ pages. I have to admit; I was quite surprised at the length of
the book especially after reading the words "novella."
Needing Her is the perfect read for fans of Molly
McAdams's stories and those who have ever wondered what happened to Detective
Connor Green after Cassidy left?
What should have been the
trip of a lifetime before heading off to college for Jill ended up becoming her
downfall and worst nightmare? Growing up
Jill and Simone were inseparable with
Simone being the drama queen and the popular one and Jill being her sidekick
and lackey. With senior year over, Jill has finally got a chance to become
someone on her own and learn to live without Simone's influence. That is until
Simone gets herself on Jill's trip to Italy and things go haywire. Six weeks
later Jill wakes up in a hospital bed in the States with no memory and learns
that she and Simone were in a car crash in Italy. Jill supposedly was the
one driving and of course now everyone is pointing to Jill as the villain and as the posts and news reports come
flooding in that Jill was jealous of Simone. What happened though in Italy and
why are people trying to cover up the truth?
Was the car accident, not an accident? I have always enjoyed Eileen Cook's YA
Fiction and when I saw that she had released a new one. I knew I had to read it
and I am glad I did as I loved it. As I
get older, I tend to go through waves with YA Fiction and find some of it dry
and hard to get into. Eileen Cook's book With Malice, however, kept my interest right through the story as I just
had to find out what had happened and why the car had crashed. One thing though
that disappointed me, was I found the
ending a little bit weak and a bit of a let-down from the suspense level
throughout the story. In a way though the ending reminded me a bit of Abigail
Haas's book Dangerous Girls. The other thing now that has me piqued is
the Amanda Knox Trial as I have heard briefly and know bits and bobs about it,
but I recall reading in another review that With Malice was loosely based on
the idea of the Amanda Knox Trial. If you love Teen Romantic Suspense and
Thrillers with Amnesiac Patients, then check out With Malice by Eileen Cook.
The other thing that I found interesting with this story, as it does show us
often how the news outlets, media can romanticize
a story for ratings.
Are you in the mood for dark fiction? Does the cover draw you in?
These were two of the main factors that got me reading Take Me With You by Nina
G. Jones. The book starts off with a killer who
strikes at 3.15am as he says that's the perfect time as it is too late to keep
awake and too early for others to be awakening. I found this interesting and
wonder if it's true as I often wake around this time and try and get back to
sleep and I am in that in-between state of sleepiness and awakeness. Our
killer stalks and hunts his prey before attacking and builds up a relationship
with his prey, breaking in and taking
their mementos. He also seems a bit fair and just as he gives his victims at
the beginning the illusion of free choice. During his time he hasn't been
obsessed with any of his previous victims,
but someone has caught his mind - Vesper. She has captivated him and spends
more time building up an imaginary relationship with her, watching her. When he
is ready, he attacks, but things go a tad
haywire as Vesper's younger brother wakes
and start screaming. I could relate to
Vesper and the way she is with her brother as he has special needs and I have
siblings and a parent who fall into the Autism/Asperger's
category. During the hunt, Vesper tells Sam - the kidnapper to take her
with him and so he does. Over the next course of the novel, we learn a bit more about Sam and watch how his and Vespers
relationship strengthens. Take Me With You is a book that Stockholm Syndrome is
romanticized as throughout the story -
the love and chemistry -though sick and twisted as it may be starting to bloom between Sam and
a read not for the faint-hearted and one that if you enjoy Dark and Gritty
Fiction, books with Dark Romance plots.
