My favorite season is fall, I love the weather that time of the year, watching the leaves change and most of all being able to watch football. Go Bucks!! I am also a 49ers fan and New York Yankees fan. My favorite color is pink, not baby pink hot pink. My mother in law thought I was joking when I asked her to add hot pink in my wedding dress. I’m married to my high school sweet heart, we have been together going on nineteen years, sometimes I can’t stand him but I wouldn’t trade him for the world. I love you Jay. Our baby is a five year old spoiled Yorki named Sophie and yes she thinks she is human.
I have always had a passion for reading and writing. I remember being around eight or nine years old reading my Mama’s romance magazines. Then once I got a little older I was reading full length novels by the time I was thirteen. I remember my freshman year in high school, I told my English teacher I wanted to be a writer he laughed when I said I wanted to write love stories. So Mr. Gatti look at me now. Of course it took me twenty plus years to get here. I have a very vivid imagination and have always felt I should express it in my writing. When I’m not writing you can find me snuggled with my hubby watching a movie, or cuddled in the corner of the couch with my fur baby reading.
I hope you all enjoy reading my books as much as I did writing them.

THE REVIEW

This book scared me at times... for the one simple reason.  Charles.  He scared me.  

Lucy is trying to move on from her break up with Charles.  She's just moved into her own house, and has a successful career in Public Relations.  Her best friend Jade is weeks away from getting married, and she relishes in helping with the planning of the wedding.  I wish I had an eighth of this girl's fashion sense.  

What she wants most is for Charles to start moving on with his life.  It becomes obvious that's not going to happen, and he will stop at nothing to get her back.  If that means taking out a prospective man in her life, so be it.  He's prepared to do it, and makes that known to her.  He even goes so far as to hire a private investigator to keep tabs on what she is doing.  His obsession combined with his drinking makes for a scary combination.

Because of this, Lucy is forced to make some changes in her life.  

I really loved reading this book!  There was a strength in Lucy she didn't know she had.  She knew Charles getting bad, and tried to get away before things got really bad.  Too bad he had other ideas in mind.

Review of Spark by Jennifer Ryder!!


Title: Spark
Author: Jennifer Ryder
Genre: Erotic Romance/ Romantic Suspense
Publication Date: February 28, 2014



Not many people know that I, Eevie Lawson, have a problem. An addiction to romance novels. I eat them for breakfast. I hide it the best I can, but I need them to breathe. It’s how I cope.

I’ve had a swag of book boyfriends, but now that I’m free from the responsibility of caring for my three younger brothers, it’s time to find one in the flesh.

In real life, no girl meets their hero on page one, or even at the end of chapter one. I should know.

My journey is real. It’s not perfect, and it sure as hell isn’t easy—but the fight for something worthwhile never is.



There was only one thing that bothered me about this book... the amount of drinking that went on a lot of the time.  I understand she was turning twenty-one, but she didn't have to drink that much.  Because of that, it got her into a lot of situations she really didn't need to be in.

Other then that, I really enjoyed this book.  Eevie is finally out of her parents home and living on her own.  She has a little bit of guilt, since her mother and brothers came to depend on her, but she knows it's time for her to move on.  When her best friend Jon sends her a dozen roses for a house warming gift, she's worried they mean more then they should.  He's been her best friend for years, and she's terrified he's going to want more from her then she's willing to give.

When he puts her in a situation she can't say no, she decides to try and date him.  She doesn't want to lose him, but there really is no spark with him.  He's like a brother.  Plus, he has issues of his own she had no idea about.

Then she meets Aaiden and her world is turned upside down.  The timing is all wrong, because he's got a girlfriend and she's got Jon, but the attraction is there.  When she finally makes the decision to ends things with Jon, she's not expecting his reaction.  What happens is exactly what she feared, and in the end he isn't the friend she thought he would be.

As I said earlier, because of the alcohol involved, it causes Eevie to make some really stupid decisions. Because of this, there is a guy from her past who makes it known of his interest in her.  Eevie is a virgin, and this guy makes it known he wants to be the one to take it from her.  Too bad she catches him in a very compromising position before she does anything she will regret.

When she's reunited with Aiden, the sparks are still there between them.  The difference?  They are both single this time.  She's determined to have him, and he's still interested in her.

I really loved this book.  I felt sorry for Eevie at times, as she was going through a lot of things that normal twenty year olds shouldn't have to go through.  It gives her strength though, and makes her into the woman she is.










A sexy imagination, a life-long love of books and a sucker for romance, Jennifer Ryder couldn't stifle her creativity any longer.

Writing steamy adult romance has become her new focus. Living on a rural property in New South Wales, Australia, she enjoys the best of city and country.

Her loving husband is ever willing to provide inspiration, and her two young cherubs, and sheep that don't see fences as barriers, keep life more than interesting.

  1. Favourite cuisine would have to be Japanese, although I’ll eat anything besides broad beans.
  2. I was a champion ‘speller’ in primary school. Yes. I’m a nerd.
  3. I have skydived, and loved it, but now having kids I would never do it again.
  4. I married my first love, and have been together 16 years.
  5. Favourite drink? BIG toss up between coffee and vodka, but seeings I have to be coherent most of the time, coffee it is.
  6. I only ever eat cheeseburgers when I am hungover.
  7. I believe coke and cheeseburgers are the best hangover cure.
  8. I once worked as a Security Guard.
  9. I once fell asleep with my eyes open, working as a Security guard. True Story.
  10. I know how to use the jaws of life, being trained in motor vehicle accident rescue as a previous member of the State Emergency Services.
  11. I am addicted to romance novels. Without question.
  12. I have a thing for tall, dark and handsome.
  13. I have a thing for boys on bikes.
  14. I love chocolate, but my addiction can be satisfied with just a square (this drives my girlfriend’s nuts).
  15. I can ride a dirt bike (seriously).
  16. I failed my first driving exam BIG time, and it was enough to keep me away for two years before trying again.
  17. I never liked Barbies. Still don’t.
  18. I got married in a little white chapel on top of a hill on Hamilton Island, Australia.
  19. I do have too many book boyfriends to count.
  20. I always have to have my toenails painted, otherwise they just look wrong!

Cover Reveal for Charlie Sullivan and the Monster Hunters by D.C. McGannon and C. Michael McGannon

Title: Charlie Sullivan and the Monster Hunters: Council of the Hunters (Book 3)
Author: DC & C. Michael McGannon      
Genre: YA Fantasy/SciFi/Action/Adventure MG 13+
Released Date: April 29, 2014
Reveal Host: Lady Amber's Tours
Synopsis
A new school year brings fresh beginnings. At least that’s what the Monster Hunters of Hunter’s Grove are hoping for. After facing down dark magic and vengeful gods in the portal village of Drakauragh, Charlie Sullivan and his band of unlikely friends look forward to a quiet, fun—and most importantly normal—first year of High School.
More than hope is needed however, as sinister activity is haunting the shadows of their once sleepy little town again.
With news of Chen’s disappearance, and an unseen force that threatens to break the protective wards surrounding Hunter’s Key, tensions quickly rise once more for Charlie Sullivan and his friends.
The five teenagers’ credibility is called into question by an elder hunter, forcing them to defend their reputations in a dangerous game where they can trust very few. Now, the reticent Council of the Hunters will convene to decide their fate as Monster Hunters.
A shocking betrayal, disquieting new figures in their own society, a corrupted nemesis, and a cloud of deception hovering over their elders all weigh heavy on the team. The Monster Hunters of Hunter’s Grove could be shut down before they have a chance to stand against the demonic shadow that threatens their bonds of friendship, loyalty, and the safety of those close to them.
Something, or someone, is tearing at the veil between our world and the Otherworld, promising to unleash Hell and prepare the way for what hunters throughout the centuries have feared would one day happen…the rise of the Ancients.
D.C. McGannon pretends to be a ninja sometimes and two of his biggest fans, his sons
Michael and Nathaniel, play along with him to make him feel better about it when he does. His other biggest fan (his wife, Holly) usually nods her head in restrained agreement, walks away, and hopes nobody gets hurt. Mr. McGannon is the author of the Charlie Sullivan and the Monster Hunters series with his son, C. Michael McGannon. He is also at times a pirate, an alien, or simply the one who retrieves the Frisbee from the far side of the yard. D.C. lives with his family and their little Maltese dog somewhere in the Midwest, and is partial to coffee, video games, and coffee.
 
C. Michael McGannon is a fan. Of stories, of libraries, of books, of Japanese and British humor, of chocolate, and of Root Beer. Mr. McGannon is the coauthor of the Charlie Sullivan and the Monster Hunter series with his father, DC McGannon. He enjoys gaming, a good book, teaching his little brother Japanese, and grilled-cheese sandwiches. Especially grilled-cheese sandwiches.
