COVER REVEAL for Author Ada Slowe


“Why do you continue to stay with him knowing you’re in love with me? “Ian asked Allison, as she sipped her wine and sat on the chair across from his table. She knew deep inside this was the last place she should be. Lucas was waiting for her, yet here she was having drinks with a man she loved years ago. What was she doing?
“Don’t Ian, just don’t. I love Lucas.” She said with a sad smile. She wasn’t lying at all in her statement, Lucas was good to her, what wasn’t to love?
“You know what? I believe you. “ Ian told her as he walked around the table and pulled her up. “I believe that you love him because I know who you are, your heart is made of pure gold. What I don’t believe though is that you’re in love with him.”
“Ian, “ Allison began as Ian framed her face between his hands and locked his piercing blue eyes with her brown ones.
“Stop, Allie. You can’t keep doing this, you have to make a choice, I love you, I’ve always loved you, I want you forever and always like I have since I was fourteen. I don’t share, you know that. “ Ian replied, as he leaned his face in closer to hers so they were now only inches away from kissing.
“I know that you’re afraid, I know I hurt you so badly, and I can’t tell you how sorry I am, but I want you back, and I’ll do anything, just give me a chance.”

I can’t promise an exact date for it, but I’m hoping for August 15th as a dedication to my cousin who passed away, that’s her birthday.

Stormy Surrender by Nicole Andrew Moore

Stormy Surrender Long Excerpt:

Marti glanced at the hammer, then the tile, shrugged, and started swinging. The tile made a lovely high pitched sound as it shattered. The shards flew about the room, ricocheting off the walls and door before landing on the floor. And because that first swing felt so good, she just kept swinging. Each time the sledge hammer connected with the tiles, she would think of what her marriage had been like. She would recall an incident, or a conversation, or any one of a thousand reasons that she should have dumped him, should have ended the marriage years ago. It felt good. Maybe even great. And then she looked down and saw red. Literally. There were blood droplets all over. Before she could even ponder why the room was looking like a crime scene, the wooden handle was ripped from her hands.

“What are you doing?” He sounded incredulous. And annoyed.

“You’re a contractor? What does it look like I’m doing?” She was upset that he had interrupted her impromptu therapy session.

Shaking his head, Joe grabbed her hand and pulled her out of the room. “I know demo and that wasn’t it.”

She growled. “I wasn’t done yet!”

“You, babe? You are finished.” She opened her mouth to argue, but he covered it. With his mouth.

Shocked, she stood there with her eyes wide open. His mouth was pressed against hers. And it didn’t feel wrong at all. Without thinking, she melted into him, wrapped an arm around his neck, and allowed her eyes to slowly flutter shut. Joe bent slightly and scooped her up and held her against his muscular chest. His lips pulled back, but his forehead was pressed against hers. She opened her eyes to find him staring at her.

“Crazy woman,” he muttered to himself as he carried her out the back door of the house. She couldn’t be certain, but it seems like she would have been carried farther if he hadn’t heard the sound of others talking in the front yard.

Slowly he lowered her to the ground and made sure she had her footing before releasing her. She wanted to smile up at him, but she hadn’t decided what to make of that moment. All she could do was look at him and murmur…”Why?”

“I needed to distract you,” he responded with a shrug. And with that he turned and walked away.

Beautiful Disaster Review

Beautiful Disaster
by Author Jamie McGuire
Review by: Shhh, Mommy's in the Bathroom.,.Reading
5 stars
Beautiful Disaster is Definitely a Beautiful Disaster!!

... Abby Abernathy is starting Fresh, where no one (except her BFF America) knows who or whats in her past. She wants everyone to think she is sweet and innocent. Then Travis "Mad Dog" Maddox comes crashing into her life.
Travis is the Campus hot shot, fighting, Walking One night Stand, you has all the girls giggling & willing to drop their panties for a chance with him. Travis has his own demons he's hiding from and the last thing he wants or expects is to fall for a Girl.

The story is well written and flows well. The relationship between Abby & Travis is very intense & at time Volatile. You find yourself wanting them to get on the same page & just when you think they are Something seems to happen (Travis is really good at pissing you off).
The secondary characters are for the most part a nice calming relationship compared to the intensity of Abby & Travis.
I don't think this book is for the younger audience.

I definitely recommend reading this book. I have heard that you either love it or hate it, and I am in the LOVE IT Camp!
