Excerpt:

“Shayne!” Thayer’s voice breaks through the heavy rain. I cross my arms and continue toward my house.

Thunder rolls and lightning follows again, much sooner this time, telling me the storm is moving closer. I push wet hair out of my face, squinting to see through the rain.

“What the fuck, Shayne,” Thayer booms, running up behind me. I turn to face him, his dark, wet hair falling in front of his eyes. “Are you crazy?”

“You told me to leave!”

“Well now I’m telling you to get your ass back inside the barn!”

I shake my head as the thunder booms once more. I know I’m being unreasonable. Now is not the time to hold anything against him. But I can’t help it. I turn back around, heading for the house. We’re only slightly closer to the barn anyway, and I’d rather get somewhere warm. But then Thayer’s hand is gripping mine, pulling me back toward him.

A loud crack splits my ears as another flash of light appears, interrupting us. Thayer and I both look over to see a bolt of lightning hit a tree only feet away. It blazes down the tree in a straight line, chunks of bark flying off. I stand there wide-eyed, staring at the smoke that follows.

“We need to leave.” Thayer grabs my hand again. When we touch, I feel a jolt shoot through my thumb and down wrist, and I drop his hand like it’s on fire.

“What was that?” It doesn’t exactly hurt, but I definitely felt something.

Thayer frowns, bringing a hand up to grip his bare shoulder, but he doesn’t respond. He felt it too.

“What the fuck are you guys doing?” Holden calls out, running up to us from the direction of the house. “The old man’s about to lose his shit.” He looks between the two of us, Thayer shirtless, his belt buckle still undone, and me, shoeless, looking more like a wild animal than a girl.

I freeze, not knowing how I’m going to explain, but Thayer’s quick on his feet, even three sheets to the wind.

“Pretty sure she just got hit by some ground lightning,” he says, gesturing to the tree that’s still smoking. “She should probably get to the E.R.”

“What? No, I’m fine,” I insist, shaking my head.

Ground lightning? Is that what that was? I barely felt it.

Holden rushes over to me and Thayer takes off, giving me one last look over his shoulder as Holden inspects me for damage. I can’t pry my eyes away from him, standing there in the pouring rain with his bare, tan chest heaving, perpetual frown in place. Somehow, I know that for the second time this week, everything is about to change. I feel it in my bones.

And I can’t shake the feeling that Thayer just said goodbye.

For good.

 

 

Blurb:

Three things my mother acquired when she became engaged:

1. A brand new Tiffany’s ring.

2. A lavish home on Heartbreak Hill.

3. Three privileged stepsons.

The last thing I expected was to fall for one of them, least of all Thayer Ames.

Beautiful, brooding, and untouchable.

I knew it was a bad idea. He warned me himself.

But he was a thunderstorm, and I never could resist the rain.

It was perfect…

Until it wasn’t.

One night was all it took for our world to crumble around us, leaving only secrets and lies between us.

Now, I have to face him again, and the boy I used to know has become the man who loves to hate me.

 

About the Author:

Charleigh Rose lives in Narnia with her husband and two young children. She’s hopelessly devoted to unconventional love and pizza. When she isn’t reading or mom-ing, she’s writing moody, broody, swoony romance.

About Ella Fox:

USA Today Bestselling Author Ella Fox has learned a bunch of stuff along the way but the most important of all those things is that anything is possible when you try. In 2012 she took a big leap of faith and published her first book, Broken Hart. Since then she’s written fifteen more full-length books and several novellas– and every one is a reminder that you can live your dream as long as you work for it.

Ella’s favorite things are music, movies, traveling, The Foo Fighters and, of course, reading. This isn’t a surprise considering the fact that her mom is USA Today Bestselling Author Suzanne Halliday.

About Mandi Beck:

Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was

then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.

A wife, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met even though her favorite hockey player calls her…mom.

About Rochelle Paige:

I absolutely adore reading—always have and always will. When I was growing up, my friends used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year’s resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me, “About time!”

About Teagan Hunter:

I’m a Missouri-raised gal, but currently live in North Carolina with my US Marine husband and 9-year-old dog. I spend my days begging him for a cat, and I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I’m not writing, you can find me binge-watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural and One Tree Hill. I like cold weather, buy more paperbacks than I’ll ever read, and I never say no to brownies.

Writing is my passion, and this is just the beginning of my journey.

About Teagan Hunter:

I’m a Missouri-raised gal, but currently live in North Carolina with my US Marine husband and 9-year-old dog. I spend my days begging him for a cat, and I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I’m not writing, you can find me binge-watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural and One Tree Hill. I like cold weather, buy more paperbacks than I’ll ever read, and I never say no to brownies.

Writing is my passion, and this is just the beginning of my journey.

Cover Reveal: Bad Influence by Charleigh Rose

Title: Bad Influence
Series: Bad Habits
Author: Charleigh Rose
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: June 13, 2019
Cover Design: Letitia Hasser @ RBA Designs

 

 
Allie
 
When I moved to River’s Edge, dating was the last thing on my mind.
I definitely didn’t expect to fall for him.
Jesse Shepherd. 
Popular. Star athlete. Cocky as hell.
You know the type.
But as time passed, I realized there was more lurking beneath that gorgeous exterior.
Secretive. Angry. A little bit broken.
The more I peeled back his layers, the deeper I fell.
Until I slammed headfirst into his sea of lies.
 
Jess
 
I blew my shot.
Pissed everything away—college, lacrosse, my future—only to end up right back where I started in River’s Edge.
I was content to revel in my misery, spending my days drowning in a bottomless pit of booze and girls.
Until I saw her.
Allison Parrish.
Beautiful. Sarcastic. Perpetual bad attitude.
The pretty little distraction from the shit show that was my life.
But the sins of my past were closing in on me, and I learned the hard way that nothing gold can stay.
 
“Did you hear that?” I ask. 

Moving in slowly, he cages me in, bracing his right arm on the wall above my head, his left hand by my hip. He brings his lips close to my ear and I fight the shiver that rolls through me. “It’s probably just your admirer,” he says, his voice hushed and husky. I swallow hard, looking over his shoulder as he nuzzles closer, his nose skimming my neck, then down to my collarbone. My pulse pounds in my ears as he moves back up, his mouth brushing across my cheek, stopping at my parted lips. 

“Is this convincing?” He asks. He’s so close that I can feel his breath on my lips, and I realize that I want him to do it. I want him to kiss me. 

I give a slight shake of my head in response. 

“No?” He smirks, knowing exactly what he’s doing to me. His left hand leaves the wall to curl around my hip and he presses his chest to mine. “How about this?” 

“Almost,” I whisper. I wet my lips and the tip of my tongue nearly grazes his bottom lip. His expression goes from playful to heated in an instant, then he’s closing the final distance. 

It’s soft at first, just a brush of his lips against mine, but soon he’s cupping my face with both hands, tilting my head back as his tongue sweeps into my mouth, his movements confident and skilled. Unhurried and unyielding. 

My hands find his shirt, pulling him closer as his tongue fucks my mouth. Because that’s exactly what this is. This isn’t kissing. Or maybe it is, and I’ve been kissing the wrong boys. 

Jesse groans, fitting a firm thigh between my legs, and the need bubbling inside me threatens to boil over at the sensation. But all too soon, he pulls back, leaving me breathless. 

“Was that convincing enough?”
Charleigh Rose lives in Narnia with her husband and two young children. She’s hopelessly devoted to unconventional love and pizza. When she isn’t reading or mom-ing, she’s writing moody, broody, swoony romance.

Favorite Covers of 2018!

IMG_9495

 

What do you love about a cover? For me – sometimes it’s the beauty, sometimes it’s the gorgeous face I can’t stop staring at, sometimes it’s the mystery of it, and sometimes I just love it so much because the book has touched me in such a powerful way. These are only a handful that have stayed with me this year!

IMG_9492

Vicious by L.J. Shen is one of my all-time favorite books! I could read it again and again, or sometimes just chapters at a time. She released this new limited cover of the book this past Summer and I was lucky enough to get a signed copy of it from her. I absolutely love it – it captures Millie LeBlanc perfectly!

 

IMG_9491

The Beautiful Hearts Duet by Emma Scott is in my Top 5 books of the year! This duet was so beautiful and brilliant and these characters have stayed with me for several months now. This was an even more special release by Emma Scott because she lost her 10 year old daughter this past Summer, and therefore this duet holds a place very close to my (and her) heart. I will never forget these characters and their story, and I look forward to reading it again and again.

IMG_9490

Rewrite the Stars by Charleigh Rose is one of my favorite books this year – but gah – look at this cover!!! Sebastian is one of those heroes that I fall for completely – he is broken, broody, cocky and ridiculously gorgeous. This story is all-consuming with the magic of the carnival setting and the characters. You will devour it!

 

IMG_9486

Timid by Devney Perry is the 2nd book in her Lark Cove series, and all the covers of the series are equally gorgeous, but this one just spoke to me. I fell in love with both Willa & Jackson and was completely immersed in their small town romance. This series will make you feel like you are right there in Lark Cove living with these relatable characters.

IMG_9484

Look the Part by Jewel E. Ann is about Flint Hopkins, a single dad, who is one of my favorite heroes this year. He is so different from any other hero I have read – but is so damn charming, unique and lovable, that I just fell head over heels for him. You will also love Ellen who comes barging into Flint and his son’s life in big fashion – just like Jewel E. Ann loves to do with her characters. This one is an emotional roller-coaster worth the ride!

 

IMG_9462

 

Waterfall Effect by K.K. Allen was one of the first books I read in 2018, and it has held my FAVORITE cover spot since then! It is gorgeous and it embodies everything about this book. This is a new adult second-chance-romance about Jaxon and Aurora who have many dark secrets and a tragic past. The connection and chemistry between them is one that is hard to top in the new adult genre. I fell head over heels for Jaxon and did not want their story to end. If you like a bit of suspense in your romance stories – you will love this one!

Review: Rewrite the Stars by Charleigh Rose

Rewrite the StarsRewrite the Stars by Charleigh Rose

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book definitely made me want to run off and join the circus….or is it carnival?!?! Gah – these characters, the setting, the fantasy of it all was so refreshing and mesmerizing, and I loved every second of it! Charleigh Rose writes books with characters who are so relatable and down to earth that you can’t help fall for them. In this story you will not only fall for Sebastian and Evangaline (Evan) but also several of the side characters.

I was pulled into this story from the Prologue and couldn’t put it down….the mystery of Sebastian, and the innocence and troubled youth of Evan take you back to your own High School days of dramatic friendships and family arguments. Evan runs away from her parents in the midst of a family argument, and somehow finds herself in the hands of Sebastian, the dark and broody carnival motorbike stuntman. The chemistry between the two of them is on fire from the beginning. I fell for Seb’s dark demeanor immediately. He is all male – cocky, ridiculously good looking, and unattainable to every female he has encountered. Even though he has a tough exterior, you just know that there is much more to him with how he reacts to Evan and the attention he gives to her. As his story unfolds and his walls come down, you will want him all to yourself. He is strong yet sensitive, and his passion is HOT. I was ready for him to take me on a ferris wheel ride!!

I loved Seb, but I think I loved Evan even more. She is young, hurting, alone, but tougher than any carnie she comes across. She will take on the boys with her words or her fists, and stand up to anyone who is ready to knock her down. She is beautiful yet broken, and her naive view of the world and people coupled with her tough determination get her everywhere with the carnies, and eventually Sebastian. I was in awe of this girl with her feisty attitude, fierceness, and desire to be loved by family and friends.

Not only is this story about young lust and love, but it is also about broken families, starting over with nothing, and believing in fate. Seb believed he was cursed and only had one path in life, and when Evan stepped in the way time and again, it all changed. I loved their angst, the emotional push and pull, and the honest and raw emotions from both of them. I fell harder for Seb each time he fought his desire for Evan only to fall harder for her in their next encounter. It was real – it was magical – and it was addicting.

You will love this carnival setting, and the secondary characters are amazing! I am hoping that this series continues with a couple of my favorites, and we get more of what’s next for Seb & Evan because I didn’t nearly get enough of them. Well done once again Charleigh Rose!!!!
