You and Everything After (Falling #2) by Ginger Scott Spotlight and Review

youandeverythig You and Everything After (Falling #2)
I’m that teenaged girl who has MS. You haven’t met me, but you’ve seen me around. You probably know my sister. We’re twins, and she’s the pretty one. Maybe you’ve heard about my reputation, how much I like to hook up at parties—how easy it is to get me in bed, get what you want, and forget about me after.

Forget what you think you know. I’m leaving that girl behind.

College is all about new beginnings. So from now on—I’m just Cass. And the rest…it isn’t written yet. And no one else gets to write my story for me.

——–

“Tyson Preeter doesn’t do can’t.”

That’s exactly what I want people to think when they see me. I am strong, invincible, confident, intelligent—arrogant. I’m the man who always finds a way around, over and through—until there’s nothing left. Since losing my ability to walk six years ago, I’ve relearned life. I don’t need sympathy. I don’t want charity. And I don’t do love.

It’s better this way, saves my disappointments for me, and me alone, and it saves my strength for everything I want.

But Cass Owens is about to wreck everything. She’s about to steal all of my strength away from me, because she needs it more. She’s about to break all of my rules, and break down all of my walls. She’s about to own me…completely.

And I’m about to let her.

* This is the second book in the Falling Series, and it is scheduled to release Dec. 5. Book 1, This Is Falling, is out now. Each book can be read as a standalone and will focus on a different couple.

 

Review by Lisa Markson

5 Stars

I am a hooked reader on this series by Ginger Scott. She has a way with writing a story that captures you and holds you hostage from page 1 to the last page. Her characters all have 3 dimensional characteristics. This story was written in Ty’s and Cass’s POV. The chemistry that these two characters had was fantastic. Ty being in a wheelchair never stopped him from helping Cass develop the courage to fight for something that she wanted which was to play soccer. Her disease MS made it impossible to obtain her dreams because in doing so she would be going against her family who felt that by playing soccer it would eventually bring on a outburst of her MS symptoms due to her getting overworked. Ty worked with her as a personal trainer to listen to her body and the love that they shared gave her the power to stand up to her parents and fight for what she wants. They both came into the relationship gunshy by that I mean they carried some serious baggage from past experiences and past relationships. Together as a couple they were unstoppable. They gave each other tremendous strength to push through life and deal with it as a team. I also was able to connect with both book 1 and book 2 because the author is from my hometown and lots of the story was brought to life. My favorite passage from the books was… “I had a great love, and then I had a great tragedy,” he says. “That love, it put me right again, sent me on my way to where I am now. To you. And as far as I’m concerned, from now on, there is just you… and everything after.” That one passage just sends chills down my spine. It was so heartfelt and touching you couldn’t help but believe in the power of love. As I was reading I kept hoping for more books in the series and then at the end I was made very happy. There will be another book in Paige, Cass’s sister POV. I received a copy in exchange for a honest and unbiased review.

This is Falling (Falling #1) by Ginger Scott Spotlight and Review

pizap.com14168068407982

thisisfalling This is Falling (Falling #1)

First, I had to remember how to breathe. Then, I had to learn how to survive. Two years, three months and sixteen days had passed since I was the Rowe Stanton from before, since tragedy stole my youth and my heart went along with it.

When I left for college, I put a thousand miles between my future and my past. I’d made a choice—I was going to cross back to the other side, to live with the living. I just didn’t know how.

And then I met Nate Preeter.

An All-American baseball player, Nate wasn’t supposed to notice a ghost-of-a-girl like me. But he did. He shouldn’t want to know my name. But he did. And when he learned my secret and saw the scars it left behind, he was supposed to run. But he didn’t.

My heart was dead, and I was never supposed to belong to anyone. But Nate Preeter had me feeling, and he made me want to be his. He showed me everything I was missing.

And then he showed me how to fall.

*This is a standalone in a three-part series that will focus on different characters. Each book can be read on its own.

I absolutely loved this book by Author Ginger Scott. The story-line flowed beautifully from beginning to the very end leaving me wanting more in the series. I loved how well developed each of the characters were written.in such a three dimensional way that you couldn’t help but fall in love with each and everyone of them. The love that Nate and Rowe had was so touching and emotional. She was so broken and he was there for her giving her a purpose and a direction to live her life. He helped her to empower herself after suffering such a traumatic experience with Josh and Betsy. She learned to love again and gain strength to live her life without regret. The relationships that she shared with Ty and Cass was so amazing they became a unstoppable force that was there for one another always willing to stand for each other. I also loved the practical jokes that the girls did to the boys. The princess pink bedroom had me laughing and laughing. I highly recommend this story if you believe in happily ever afters and the ability to overcome adversity. I can’t wait to read more and more in this series and other books by this fabulous author.

How I Fly (How I Fall Book 2) by Anne Eliot Spotlight and Review

pizap.com14168068407982

howifly How I Fly (How I Fall book 2)
*What if it’s time to move on?*
Over six months after an accident that broke her legs as well as removed her boyfriend from her life—because Cam Campbell left town and dumped her—high school senior, Ellen Foster, wants to move past her broken heart. She’s off to attend a summer photography workshop at a real university along with her best friends. Ellen’s determined to find a new love—or at least a summer boyfriend. In the dorm, she meets Harrison Shaw. He’s a handsome photography student, a charmer who likes her, and a perfect way to forget her past.

*What if it all goes perfectly?*
Ellen thinks she has everything she wants. Her summer program couldn’t be better. She’s half in love with Harrison Shaw, and she’s going after her next scholarship. But when she kisses Harrison, she can only remember how Cam Campbell used kiss her better, sweeter, and how he used to make her feel like she could fly…

*What if something’s not right?*
When Cam shows up at the university it’s a shock, especially to Ellen’s new boyfriend. Cam’s distant, different and very afraid to hurt Ellen again. He asks Ellen if they could be friends despite the past and how they’ve both changed and Ellen agrees. But after all they’ve been through, can Cam and Ellen ever be just friends?
*What if…?*

Editorial Description:
How I Fall, is the first book, bestselling, high school romance series ending with: How I Fly. Though they can be read as stand-alone-it is recommended readers read this book first. The series is about friendship, boyfriends, taking risks and first love. There’s a photographer heroine who has left-sided cerebral palsy (hemiparesis) that makes her weak on one side and she falls often; all while she’s falling deeply in love with football jock, Cam Campbell. A guy who also dreams to be a photographer like Ellen but can’t because of his parents’ controlling rules.

 

Review by Becky Harley

5 Stars

The cliffhanger at the end of the last book made the wait for this one unbearable. I was really holding out hope for Cam and Ellen as a couple and could not wait to find out how they would resolve their issues.

This book really highlights the development and growth of each character. Ellen faces a tough recovery and the stress and excitement of a new environment while still dealing with the effects of her surgery and continuing to cope with her CP. Cam has had the hardest time of any of the characters, isolated from everyone he knows and loves. The book is excellent in the way it deals with the emotions of each of the characters as they deal with the events surrounding the last book and the way in which this effects them now.

This book is also great for its twists and turns. While it can be predictable in places, it also offers great plot developments which I did not see coming. The way in which these twists help to both push the characters apart while at the same time pulling them together makes this book exciting to read and keeps the reader interested.

I love the way that these books are written from the perspective of both Ellen and Cam, this really emphasises their individual characters and shows their personal growth throughout the books. This also shows the depth of the emotion and connection between the two main characters.

As always, Patrick and Laura are amazing characters. Fiercely loyal and protective, while at the same time encouraging and supportive of any decision Ellen makes.

Overall this was an amazing sequel to How I Fall and I only hope that Patrick and Laura will get their own book.

5 Stars

I truly love this series by Anne Eliot. It is so refreshing seeing a book that doesn’t capitalize on sex to show a love story. This is a book that I could safely give to my 13 year old niece to read and know that she will see that simple kisses will tell alot in a love story. I was hooked on this series from book 1. Anne Eliot totally killed me after reading How I Fall because I was hoping for a true HEA. She didn’t disappoint when she wrote How I Fly. At times I wanted to reach out to her and scream with the twists and turns of this story. I don’t want to give spoilers but there are points in this story that had me screaming and wanting to throttle a certain character. I totally hate when people use others to advance themselves. I still kept wishing for a reunion between Cam and Ellen. Their love was so sweet, and innocent and through all of the bull they were able to transcend and come through. I really hope that the author continues following these characters in more books going farther as they go on to college. It would also be wonderful to see a story between Patrick and Laura, I feel that they could truly have a wonderful love story. This is one book that could be read and enjoyed by any age.

How I Fall by Anne Eliot Spotlight and Review

pizap.com14168068407982

22319051 How I Fall
*WHAT IF YOU HAD AN IMPOSSIBLE CRUSH?*
Impossible because she’s Ellen Foster. The beautiful, smart, and possibly fragile photography-girl. You’re Cam Campbell. The guy who plays football 24/7 with no life. But what if during junior year, you decide to finally try for her phone number—until this glitter-crazed new girl ruins your plan. Worse, the girl is Irish, awkward, and insists you and Ellen should become best friends—with her! Only, you don’t want to be friends with a human tornado, and you think Ellen might need to stay a crush. This is because after one interaction you’ve discovered Ellen Foster really is fragile. Your problems and secrets are too big for anyone to understand.

*WHAT IF YOU COULDN’T RESIST?*
But what if the three of you wind up assigned to a group photography project, where rumors are already circling about the new girl being ridiculous? You know she’s nice but very alone, so you convince your crush to help protect the new girl. Suddenly, working on the project makes hanging out, texting, talking—and even high school—seem fun and completely normal when it’s anything but normal.

*WHAT IF YOU KISS*
What if you kiss Ellen Foster and it’s perfect enough to make you believe in things you shouldn’t. You tell her secrets and share your dreams. You make the kinds of promises and create plans to be together that might be impossible to keep when you’re only sixteen and your parents control your entire future,
but…

*WHAT IF YOU HURT HER.

Review by Lisa Markson

5 Stars

I absolutely loved this story. The author had you routing for the characters. It was sort of a Romeo and Juliet love story that didn’t end quite tragically as Romeo and Juliet did but it still was devastating. You could not resist hoping and praying that Ellen would finally be seen through others eyes as a person not just the girl with cerebral palsy but someone that is capable of many things if given a chance. It is a great story for a teen that is struggling with learning to fit into the world of the normal. Kids with disabilities must face many obstacles throughout their lives and this book gives the person the ability to empower themselves and forge their place in this world. Yes life can be tough but you can make it a wonderful place to be and gain the freedom if you stop feeling self pity and embrace what tools that your given and make yourself all the more stronger in every aspect of your life. I highly recommend this book for all ages. This is a sweet first love, first kiss type of book and shows that you have the capability to achieve greatness if you try.

Forever His Baby by Morgana Phoenix Spotlight and Reviews

pizap.com14168068407982

24041239 Forever His Baby
Two brothers. One impossible choice

From the moment her suspicions are confirmed, Lily knows she’s screwed. What the hell is a nineteen year old with no future going to do with a baby? She can barely take care of herself. She needs help.

In walks Sloan McClain, the only man Lily has ever truly wanted — and the brother of the boy whose baby she’s carrying. While Lily expects a great number of outcomes when she tells Sloan her news, him proposing marriage and asking her to keep the baby is not one of them, especially not when she has every intention of giving the baby a better future by giving it the home she can’t.

Having spent the majority of his life protecting his brother from the bone-breaking fists of their father, Sloan is no stranger to hardship, loss and abandonment. He has learned long ago never to rely on anyone to take care of what was his, and that baby is his. He isn’t about to let Lily give away his family, nor can he allow that child to destroy the future he has built for Cole. His only option: marry the mother and claim the baby as his.

But no secret ever stays hidden forever.

5 Stars

I couldn’t put this book down! Another brilliant story from Morgana/Airicka Phoenix.All the main characters are completely lovable, and when 19 year old Lily becomes unexpectedly pregnancy with her best friend Cole’s baby, both her and Sloan, Cole’s brother, decide to keep it from him. While Lily and Sloan have Cole’s best interest and future at heart, these kind of secrets have a way of coming out eventually.

The growing relationship between Lily and Sloan is beautifully written. I could have kept reading about them for weeks.

Review by Tammie Dillon
5 Stars
This was a very different twist on a love triangle, not a cheating book at all, rather lifelong bonds between the three. In real life I wouldn’t agree with keeping a baby secret, and yet, in this story I completely see how Lily and Sloan would think it was the right and logical choice at that point. This was definitely an example of the nosy busy body small town life gossiping that would drive me nuts in real life, that being said I sure did love it when Lily’s mom stood up for her, I had to try hard not to laugh out loud waking the hubby at 3 am!
I thought the building of their love story was reasonable and made sense because of how they had each felt for years. Cole finally putting the math together, was almost like “it took you this long to figure it out?”, not in a bad writing way, but in a shaking my head – clueless guy wrapped up in his own life way.
I wasn’t really surprised by the evolution of Lily and Sloan’s sex life, the hints and teases of where it was going were there along the way. I enjoyed the way it ended, and wouldn’t mind of there was another book with Cole and Beth’s story.

Omg what can I possibly say to explain how much I loved this book. I feel deep down that this was possibly her best book ever written. She has truly found her nitch in this genre. I loved each and every character although there were times I didn’t really like Cole. The tenderness that was shown between the characters where really well developed. You couldn’t help wishing that the HEA would be to the benefit of them all. I would love to see more of these type of books by Morgana/Airicka in the future. This is definitely a book I would highly recommend anyone to read. There was alittle sex but majority of the book was sweet romance. Finding true love after denying it for so many years. I received a arc in exchange for a honest and unbiased review. I definitely want more and more.

Never met a book by Ms Phoenix that I didn’t LOVE!!!! A perfect book to read at Christmas and full of twists and turns.The heat and love between the characters shines through beautifully and the happily ever after is heartfelt and touching.

Love that Ms Phoenix was able to exit her comfort zone and try, and succeed, to write a new genre for her! Her talent is not only amazing, but truly inspiring!

3:AM Kisses by Addison Moore Spotlight and Review

pizap.com14168068407982

18171526 (1) 3:AM Kisses
From the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Addison Moore

New Adult *Intended for mature audiences.

Baya Brighton is looking forward to her first year at Whitney Briggs University, new friends, dorm life, and finally being close to her brother again. Love is the last thing on the list, but when Baya meets her brother’s roommate she begins to have thoughts and feelings that make even her blush.

Bryson Edwards has a secret he prefers buried in the past and long forgotten. He prefers loose girls, fast cars, and long nights working at the string of bars his family owns. When his roommate’s sister shows up on the scene, she’s far too innocent and sweet for him but he can’t shake Baya out of his mind and worse, it looks like she’s seeping into his heart as well.

Baya seems determined to show her brother she’s not a little kid and equally determined to use Bryson’s body to prove her point. It’s been made pretty clear that Baya is off limits to Bryson but their undeniable sparks explode into a whole lot more than just a few 3:AM KISSES.

Bryson reminds me of stud of a hubby when I met him! Minus the notches of course! I’m sure Baya will love him as much in 22 years as I still love the hubby today! Addison did such a great job with this one that I could actually feel the angst! I really adored Baya, the way she talks reminds of my daughter. Sassy with the mouth and wanting to live her life to the fullest! She’s so real and down to earth that many young women out there will relate to her on a very basic level. And the guys out there need to buck up and take a page out of Bryson’ how to treat a girl book!!!

Review by Becky Harley

5 Stars

I loved this story. Yes it is very similar to some of the other books in the same genre, but you know that when you buy it from the description. The relationships between all of the characters are clear and it really sets the scene for the other books in the series. The relationship between Baya and Bryson grows steadily throughout the book and their emotions are well portrayed, it felt real, not forced. Every emotion from love to heartbreak to sarcasm, embarrassment and happiness is covered in this story and makes the reader feel very connected to each of the characters. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes others in this genre and to anyone looking for a nice easy read.

Review by Marisol Taveras

4 Stars

The story of finding that one person who makes you want to be better and grow up is wonderful. How sweet and lovely Baya is the one for Bryson the college ladies man is classic but still captivating. The truth of his past and how it could possibly destroy their present romance leaves you makes guesses of what it could be. I completely enjoyed how the story unfolded and the determination of which their love for each other makes them fight to be together despite obstacles and criticism. I look forward to the reading the next installments.

Review by Rebecca Martin

4 Stars

Baya is new to college, and what an introduction, flashing her brother’s gorgeous flatmate and meeting her room-mate (well parts of her) in the first few minutes. Not what she was expecting! And then she finds out the brother that has overbearingly protected her virginity is a giant man-whore.

Intent to show her brother that she isn’t a little girl anymore, she sets her sight on his gorgeous flatmate Bryson. While Bryson is definitely interested, he is also struggling with his own history and Baya’s overprotective brother.

There are a lot of funny moments throughout the story, along with some mean sorority girls to keep it interesting. Baya is sweet and a little too trusting and I loved that she named her room-mates breasts.

My Mechanical Angel by Harmony Lawson Spotlight and Review

pizap.com14168068407982

22035343 (1) Her Mechanical Angel

The small Wild West farming community of Whitcomb was afraid of Seraphton, the shining metropolis that lies along the horizon. Reverend Archibald preached that the city was forbidden, an abomination to the world, and evil demons lurk inside despite the celestial name. Emmaline had a feeling there was more to Seraphton than the Reverend let on. Emmaline Fortenbury had always felt out of place in Whitcomb and wondered if Seraphton was really like he said. He preached like he held a grudge. What were the secrets of Seraphton and how did it connect with Reverend Archibald?
Then a stranger comes to town and the meeting changes her life. Aleksander Galloway was feared by the townspeople, but she found him fascinating. She wanted more out of life for herself. She wanted the chance to explore the world, and he seemed to be the man to help her. He had silver metal wings and a mechanical eye. He was handsome in a way that wasn’t like the townspeople of Whitcomb. He was sophisticated, educated, and very interesting. How can their love grow when their two towns collide? Can their love bring everyone together for peace?

 

Review by Deb Caroll

4 Stars

Harmony has a great way with words and I think this book will have great appeal to younger adults. Emma, the main character is an easy to like young girl that you will find yourself connecting with right from the start. We see in her things that we all struggle with at times, the ability to fit in with those around us, the questioning of the things that we are told by the adults around us and the desire to explore what else is out there. Emma’s journey is an inspiration and I found myself standing on the sidelines applauding as she finds not only herself, but her independence and of course love. When you add in the Angelic twist you get a very powerful story that leaves you with a warm and happy feeling.

I am looking forward to reading more stories from Harmony!

Review by Rebecca Martin

4 Stars

I was privileged to receive a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Set in a world that reminded me of M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘The Village’, Emmaline has always felt like an outsider, while fascinated with the shining metropolis that lies along the horizon. When she finds a stranger with silver metal wings and a mechanical eye in her barn, Emmaline’s life is changed forever, providing her the chance to explore the world.
I loved the premise of this book and there were some great twists and turns which I thought could have been built upon earlier in the story. The last half of the book is definitely where all the action is. The style was more narrative and made me feel like I was watching the story. Definitely worth a read if you enjoy steampunk, angels or anything with creepy villagers.
A great book from this promising new author. I am looking forward to reading her future books.

Falling Down (Rockstar series #1) By Anne Mercier Spotlight and Review

pizap.com14168068407982

22918893 Falling Down
Warning: If you’re looking for tons of drama or a dark romance, you won’t find it here. This is a light and fun rocker romance where the struggles are minor and the love and laughs are abundant. The sex is frequent and graphic, the language explicit, and the profanity profuse.

Jesse Kingston, the lead singer of Falling Down, is a tall, dark, and gorgeous temptation I don’t want to resist.

I’m going to ignore all the warning signs and do what I normally wouldn’t–I’m going to give in to my desire. I’m going to indulge my fantasies and give this sexy rocker what he wants and something he won’t soon forget–me.

Is one time going to be enough? Will one weekend together end up changing this bad boy? Or will it end up changing me?

***This is a stand-alone novel with a HEA and no cliffhanger***

Review by Lisa Markson

5 stars

Omg this books was so amazing on so many levels. Anne is a new author to me and now I am a total fangirl can’t wait to read the next book in the series and any other books she has out. Anne came highly recommended to me by my favorite author Jessica Gibson. I had been in a total book funk and every book I picked up was just blah. Thank you so much to Jessica for recommending this series and a new stalker fan of Anne. I highly recommend this book the story captivates you from page one to the very end but leaves you with wanting more and more. The characters were really well written and they came to life in a three dimensional aspect. You just wanted to this to have a hea because the characters were so amazing. What started as a school girl crush developed into so much more and in the end even the bad boy was hooked he was such a breath of fresh air. This is not your typical girl meets dream idol rockstar it is so much more. Both of the main characters do so much growing together and they salidify their relationship in so many ways.

First and foremost I am an avid reader of romance. I read every single day. Without reading I wouldn’t be inspired to write. The same can be said about music. I started reading with Nora Roberts and Sandra Brown’s LoveSwept titles forever ago and went from reading solely traditionally published to reading nearly all indie authors. I still read my Nora and a few others. A must.

I started seriously writing about six years ago when the need to get the stories that are stuck in my head on paper became overwhelming.

I hope you enjoy reading my stories as much as I enjoy writing them.

I’m a huge fan of music, chocolate, fruit, Fall, Matt Shadows, Avenged Sevenfold, and Milo Ventimiglia.

Revealing Kia (The Lost Girl #2) by Airicka Phoenix Spotlight and Review

pizap.com14168068407982

18461891 Revealing Kia (The Lost Girl #2)
The events of Claudia’s party were nothing more than a distant memory as far as Kia was concerned. She was ready to resume her life as though that night had never happened. But it’s a slippery slope keeping a secret and Kia’s about to learn just how hard when she’s faced with the truth and the consequences of her decision.

Adam Chaves was no stranger to girls wanting him. He was no stranger to breaking hearts, although never intentionally. What he didn’t understand was how Kia could undress him, touch him, burn him with her eyes and still keep him at arm’s length when it was evident how much it cost her. But what Kia didn’t realize was that he had never given up on anything in his life and he wasn’t about to start now. He would have his girl even if it meant he had to kidnap her to do it.

 

Review by Rebecca Martin

5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Following on the story of Kia and Adam, we get to see the struggles that these two go through to try and be together. Kia’s confidence has improved in this book and she is really coming into her own skin which is lovely. On a serious note, we start to see more of Nessie and the serious issues that she is dealing with.

Such a great group of characters and during the course of the series they have all grown and helped each other. I loved this book and read it in one sitting as I needed to know how it all worked out.

Finding Kia (The Lost Girl #1) by Airicka Phoenix Spotlight and Review

pizap.com14168068407982

18206288 Finding Kia (The Lost Girl #1)
“Maybe you should avoid me tonight.”
His arm slipped around my waist and I was drawn into his chest. “If I only have this one night with you, the last thing I’m going to do is stay away.”

Kia Valentines had always accepted the fact that she was a nerd, a nobody. It was a badge she wore with honor, until the day she saved Claudia DeLorenzo’s life and lost herself.
When offered the chance to shed her identity for a single night, Kia never believed it would change her life. It was one night. It meant nothing, or it shouldn’t have. But that single night turned out to be her undoing when she finds passion in the arms of the one person she can never have.

Adam Chaves was more than just a gorgeous face, he made her laugh, but more importantly, when he looked at her, she felt like the most beautiful girl on earth. But Adam has no idea that Kia was the girl behind the mask and Kia has no intention of telling him. But a secret could only be kept if no one else knows about it. Claudia knows and she wants something Kia isn’t willing to give in order to keep it.

Will Kia succumb? And just how far is Claudia willing to go to get what she wants?

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Kia is a sweet nerd who is happy with her life. That is until she saves the queen of the school and gets invited to her masquerade party. There she meets her best friend’s brother who she is secretly crushing on, and he falls for her.

Adam is lush, and the story gets sweeter as Kia starts to see how beautiful she really is. But how can she betray her only friend for a boy!

I loved this book and couldn’t put it down.
