A Five-Minute Life, an all-new standalone new adult romance by International bestselling author Emma Scott is Live!

AFML Cover.jpg

Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.

A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.

Jim Whelan is on autopilot.

A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.

Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.

When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.

A stand-alone, new adult romance.

PR - CR banner.jpg

Pretty Reckless, the first standalone in the highly anticipated All Saints High series from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is coming April 29th and we have the gasp-worthy cover!


In most places, high school is a zoo.

But All Saints High? It’s a lawless jungle.

All the cool kids wear the same brands.

Have the same hair.

Same shoes.

Same cars.

Same hookups.

Same fucking makeup artists, hair stylist and harem of preppy help.

Everything is a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy.

But Daria Followhill? She’s the OG.

Girls want to be her.

Guys want to be INSIDE her.

It really doesn’t get better than this for Queen Bae, does it?

Until HE shows up, turns her kingdom upside down, and breaks her crown…

HE is not what you think.

SHE is not what you expect.

You’re probably thinking in an obvious direction, but let me assure you, this is not where this story is going.

Let the (power) games begin…

A Place Without You, an all-new emotional New Adult romance from Jewel E. Ann, is available now! This book has become one of my all-time favorites!!


The Law of Henna and Bodhi:

When love breaks, fall inward, fall together, and fall hard. Then let time pick up the pieces.

Everything feels temporary when you’ve experienced tragedy—until Henna Lane meets Bodhi at a music festival.

Young and spontaneous, they have a lust for seizing the moment, falling hard and fast.

When Bodhi is forced to leave without a goodbye, Henna thinks she’ll never get over him. But then she meets Mr. Malone, her sexy, new guidance counselor.

They are reckless.

They are forbidden.

When their secret is discovered, Henna has to choose between finishing school—banned from seeing Mr. Malone—or dropping out to follow her nomad dreams.

Henna chooses her dreams.

Over time, she learns that life is not a destination or a journey, some things are more than temporary, and the forbidden can never be ignored. But if she returns for him, will he still be hers?

A Place Without You is an emotional story of young love, shattered dreams, and impossible decisions.

New Release: Verity by Colleen Hoover

Verity RB Banner.jpg

“Sublimely creepy with a true Hoover pulse. I’ve been waiting on a thriller like this for years.” Tarryn Fisher, New York Times bestselling author

Verity, an all-new romantic thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, is available now!


Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.

Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity likely didn’t intend for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity’s recollection of the night their family was forever altered.

Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen’s feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife’s words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her.

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!!!!

Book Review: Long Live the Beautiful Hearts by Emma Scott

Long Live the Beautiful Hearts (Beautiful Hearts, #2)Long Live the Beautiful Hearts by Emma Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I finished this book two days ago and have been putting off writing my review simply because I had no words – only tears – tears of sorrow, tears of happiness, tears of mourning, tears of hope, tears of love. As I am writing now thinking about what I want to say, the tears are building again. Everyone needs to read this book! I would give it 10 stars if I could!

The Beautiful Hearts Duet will forever remain some of my favorite books of all time. Emma Scott has a way of creating characters who are so raw and real that you can’t help but insert yourself into their lives and truly feel that you know them. In Bring Down the Stars, you get to know Autumn – the compassionate, positive, brilliant farm girl with so much love to give; Connor – the misunderstood, confident, handsome baseball player; and Weston – the poet who hid behind numbers and ran track with an attitude. The friendship and adoration that develops between these three runs so deep. There is so much history and loyalty between the boys, and so much hope for what Autumn deserves and wants in her life. At the end of BDTS, we are left with not one but two possible tragedies, and Autumn is left back at home torn between following her heart and her loyalty. It is so raw and gut-wrenching that I could NOT wait to get my hands on LLTBH.

What makes this duet so spectacular are these three characters. Emma created them all with their own broken parts, but especially Weston. Weston stole my heart in BDTS and he sealed it in this book. He will hit the lowest of lows, and it is so awe-inspiring him to watch him fight his way out. His relationship with his professor – with Connor – with Autumn – they ALL were so detrimental to the development of his character, and ran so deep. There were so many times I just wanted to jump into the pages and give Weston a hug, a kiss, and cheer him on. This man was brought to life for me. He is passionate, loyal, brilliant, and his words…..oh his words!!! They will forever bring tears to my eyes.

“Long Live the Beautiful hearts
like yours
That beat with infinite depth
Canyons of forgiveness
Cathedrals of beauty and love
Their doors wide open
A haven to weary runners
Whose race has ended.”

This book is about forgiveness – for ourselves and others. It is about loyalty, honesty, the fight between right and wrong, fighting for what you want, and letting go when you know it’s time. But it also represents the strength, tears, fight, mourning, and love of a mother who lost her child this year, Emma Scott. I have so much love and admiration for you – for fighting your way through the darkness, for writing this book for Isabel, for writing it for yourself. Your passion, heart and soul are in these pages… and we see them. I know Isabel can too!

Coming Soon: From Here to You by Jamie McGuire

Coming Soon from New York Times Bestseller Jamie McGuire…


From Here to You by Jamie McGuire will hit shelves on August 21, 2018.

My Review:

I have been waiting to devour this book ever since I finished The Maddox Brothers series! I first met Trex back in the stories of Thomas, Taylor and Tyler Maddox. He was sort of an enigma – no one really knew what he did or who he worked for. He was someone the Maddox brothers were unsure of at first – and then he became someone in their inner circle. There was so much mystery surrounding Trex that I just knew his story would be something I needed!

I am so glad that Jamie McGuire decided to write Trex’s story because not only do you get to uncover who he really is and his dark past, but you get to fall hard for this deep, passionate, caring, and driven man. He is all Alpha male and I am in love! He was a Marine and in the FBI – WHAAAAT?!?!? Sign me up.

Darby Dixon is one lucky girl. I love how her story started out – she is all on her own with hardly anything to her name, and she pulls her head up and takes charge of her life. She is beautiful, smart, and doesn’t give up. This girl has GRIT. Although she is guarded and keeps her walls up with Trex (and all the hotshots after her), it is beautiful how naturally and easily her walls come down with Trex. He is so protective of her and her heart that you can’t help but swooooon.

This story had me turning the pages faster than ever…there is some suspense, dark history, and several side characters who you will love. Of course I squealed any time one of the Maddox boys was mentioned or stepped in the scene….OMG those brothers will kill me dead! Now I wonder where I can go find a job as a front desk receptionist in a hotel where Hotshots stay?!!? Hmmmmm???? Well done once again Jamie McGuire!!!


About the author:

Review: More Than Words by Mia Sheridan

More Than WordsMore Than Words by Mia Sheridan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have to mentally prepare myself to read a book by Mia Sheridan – but it is with great excitement and anxiety fluttering in my chest. I know her books are going to rip my heart open and then somehow beautifully put it back together, and that is exactly what this one did. More Than Words was written in such a way that it magically intertwined history, music, and the bonds of childhood to create a heartfelt and passionate life story between Callen and Jessie.

“I am here to save you.” Each time this line was said in the book, I lost a little piece of my heart to these two characters. When Callen & Jessie initially meet each other they are both seeking refuge from their broken homes and lives. Their instant friendship and easiness with each other was both endearing and portrayed so naturally. I loved their world of “make believe” and “fairy tales” and how they each played a part in them as they escaped their own reality. My heart was teetering as the years went on and they each invested more in their relationship.

Oh Callen – he is both broken and a genius. He lost his way very young, but somehow managed to hold on to the one thing from his past that made him who he is as a famous composer. This tie to his childhood with Jessie was my undoing – he was so vulnerable when it came to Jessie, yet so arrogant and confident to outsiders. The way he changed from a successful and famous man to a young man acting like a kid again with Jessie was amazing. It made me fall for him although I literally wanted to smack him sometimes.

Jessie is brilliant, and I absolutely loved the parallels between her studying Joan of Arc and her own story with Callen. Mia Sheridan is a freaking genius!!!! I found myself right in the midst of the historical figure’s life and battles – then only to be thrown right back into the frenzy of Jessie and Callen’s lives. The reoccurring theme of “live fiercely and have no regrets” was so prominent and meaningful throughout the book, that you just couldn’t help but keep hoping Jessie & Callen would not give up on their dreams or each other.

Although this book spans over a couple of decades – you feel as if time stands still with Jessie & Callen. Their bond and emotional ties to the other are so strong and so real. I absolutely loved how their childhood together was just the foundation for what was to come for them. This book is definitely one of my favorites I have read this year – and I can’t wait to go back and read it again…and again. Well done Mia Sheridan!! XO
