Review & Excerpt Tour & a Giveaway: The Natural History of Us (The Fine Art of Pretending #2) by Rachel Harris



The Natural History of Us (The Fine Art of Pretending #2) by Rachel Harris.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: April 5th 2016 by Spencer Hill Press.
One class assignment. One second chance at love. The school player is all in. Now he needs to win back the sweet commitment girl who's forever owned his heart.

Justin Carter has a secret. He's not the total player Fairfield Academy believes him to be. Not really. In fact, he used to be a one-woman guy...and his feelings for her never went away. Too bad he broke her heart three years ago and made sure to ruin any chance she'd ever forgive him.

Peyton Williams is a liar. She pretends to be whole, counting down the days until graduation and helping her parents at the family ranch. But the truth is, she's done everything she can to get over Justin, and salvation is just around the corner. With graduation one short month away, she'll soon break free from the painful memories and start her life fresh. Of course, she has to get through working with him on one last assignment first.

For Justin, nothing ever felt as right as being with Peyton, and now that fate's given him a shot at redemption, he's determined to make the most of it. And for Peyton...well, Justin Carter has always been her kryptonite.

Reviewed by Kelly.

I love stories of second chances and held secrets. This has both. It is also a pretty good at portraying high school.

The story goes back and forth in time with freshman year and senior year. Of how Justin and Peyton started, ended and then where they go from there. Justin has a rich father who is absent in his life and always working. His grandparents raised him until they died when he was young. His stepmom ignores him. Justin’s half-brother adores Justin and the feeling is mutual. Justin only has the housekeeper for company. Justin's life is for baseball as that is what his father wants from him, although he never shows up for any games. But Justin has a great coach at school. Justin wants to please him as he is a good man and praises his team and Justin.

Peyton has been recovering from an illness that took her strength from her. She is still working to get back to where she was before. Her family has a ranch. They have a dog salon and boarding. They have horses and Peyton has been good on a horse. She competes with barrels. Since the accident and illness she has been slightly afraid to get back on the horse. Her family adores her and they have lots of traditions and a huge extended family. Who wouldn’t want to be around all that happiness?

Justin gets to know Peyton and finds himself drawn to her like a moth to a flame. But he doesn’t do commitments. He is a player. He also doesn’t have time. But he just can’t seem to stay away. When Justin learns Peyton’s dad is his coach, he really tries to keep his distance. That didn’t work out either. So they agree to a secret relationship. This is in the freshman year. Then something happens and Peyton sees a girl with Justin. She can’t believe he would cheat on her. Peyton’s parents never even knew about their relationship in freshman year.

Then go forward to senior year. Justin and Peyton are paired to do the parents with robot baby thing. Peyton isn’t happy. But Justin wants her back and he will do whatever it takes. Including getting her now boyfriend away from her somehow. But there is the fact that he majorly hurt her and will that ever be resolved because Peyton hasn’t really ever gotten over Justin either.

I really liked how you don’t get a clue of what happened in freshman year for Justin to do what he did until the last third of the book. All I found myself doing was rooting for them. Justin really is a good guy and he deserves happiness too.

Justin is always rooting for Peyton’s progress with her horse. Peyton is always rooting at Justin’s baseball games. They are dang good for each other!! There are all the little things that they do for the other.

“Do what scares you”

“What are you chasing?”

Those are some of the little words of encouragement that they share with each other and it is enough to help the other out and hold on to hope!





“Hold out your hand.” At the expression on his face, I rolled my eyes. “Just do it.” Cautiously, as if I was going to put out a cobra or something, he uncurled his fingers and lifted his palm. I dropped a small silver coin in the center. “For luck.”
Wonder warred with confusion in his gorgeous brown eyes and my heart melted.
“On this side there’s a horseshoe,” I said, my cheeks warming with a blush. “You know, the universal symbol for luck… and a small reminder of me.”
I bit my lip, hoping he didn’t think that was too corny—or that it revealed too much.
I flipped the coin over, exposing the other side, and my fingers slid across his rough skin. My breath caught. When I lifted my eyes, I found him watching me with so much intensity, so much heat, that an actual shiver rolled through me. Just like in my favorite books.
Huh. So that was what smoldering looked like. Good to know.
I swallowed hard and noticed him do the same, and nothing could hold back my smile. Justin glanced down and laughed. “Kick some ass!” he read, skimming his fingernail over my initials.
“I figured…” I cleared my throat. “I thought you could hide it in your sock or something,” I said, unable to tell if he liked the gift or not. He just kept staring at it. “If it’s dumb, you don’t have to—”
“No.”
He’d said it so quietly I almost wasn’t sure he’d spoken at all. But then he closed his hand around the coin and raised his head. Time ceased to exist as Justin’s eyes trailed across my face. I held my breath waiting and a sweet smile crossed his face.
“Damn.” He shook his head softly. “You’ve done it now.”
“What?” I asked, hoping whatever it was that it was a good thing. “What did I do?”
Justin merely shook his head again and smiled. “Wait for me after the game.” Shifting his gaze to the old concession stand, he took a step back and said, “Over there, okay?”
When I nodded, excitement lodging in my throat, making it impossible to speak, he winked and then took off to join his teammates. As I watched his cute butt in those uniform pants run across the field, a giddy grin found my lips.

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Sun and Moon by Desiree Williams



Sun and Moon
by Desiree Williams.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy.
Publication: April 28th 2016.
There is nothing in life that eighteen year old Zara craves more than her freedom. Stolen from her home in Cadrebia at the age of eight, Zara has spent more years than she cared to admit as a slave to the Tankadesh courts. Her days are filled with protecting the princess, while she spends nights entertaining the king and his officials with her mastery of weapons. Any spare moment in between, she plots escape.

Yet her hopes for freedom come to a crashing halt when a stranger arrives bearing the mark of her assigned lifemate, and he threatens war if she isn’t turned over into his care. But a lifemate is not part of the plan. Her dreams, of choosing her own path and being the master of her own will, weaken as her Moon seeks to claim his Sun.

Is it possible that this stranger, with gentle blue eyes and a ready smile, didn’t come to be her new master? That there could be more to his tale?

Zara soon finds that neither her captivity nor her parents’ deaths were mere random attacks. And by returning to Cadrebia, she may have put the future of the royal line—and her Moon—in jeopardy. While Zara breathes in her first taste of freedom, her enemies move in, seeking to rob Cadrebia of its blessed prophecy.

To keep what she holds dear, Zara must rise above the pain and uncertainty to claim the lifemate assigned to her, or more than her freedom will be stolen this time.



“What’s going on here?” Dareh dismounted from his horse and with long purposeful strides worked his way toward them. His green eyes blazed. His jaw was set. Zara would hear about this later, but for now she would welcome his rescue.
The captain of the guard surveyed the scene. He closed his eyes briefly—probably praying for patience not to strangle her—and clamped a hand on her shoulder.
“I swear, Zara,” Dareh whispered low into her ear. “You attract trouble like a siren.”
She opened her mouth with a rebuttal, but Dareh narrowed his eyes, silencing her on the spot.
“Get to the palace before you’re recognized by my men. If Melchior learns you’ve been outside the palace walls you’ll spend the night in the flogging yard. Go. Take Essie with you. I’ll sort things out here.”
Zara opened her mouth once more, but a prickling over her palm stopped the words from flowing. Heat traced the lines of her mark. Goosebumps dotted her flesh. She shivered despite the heat from the desert sun. Oh, no. Please, no.
“May I be of some assistance?”
She jerked at the rich baritone that came from behind her. The world fell away in that moment. The merchants cursing over their loss were gone. Dareh’s men waving or shouting at the crowd gathered around them—gone. Even poor Essie, standing with her jaw dangling like a loon, faded.
Zara’s senses zoned in on the man behind her. She curled her fingers to close over the crescent shaped mark that had begun to throb. Her mind screamed for her to run. Her heart was all but having a seizure. But her feet somehow managed to turn her stunned body.
Pale blue eyes were the first thing she noticed. They reminded her of the moon with a ring of dark night around them. Sun-kissed skin followed with a splash of scruff along a strong jaw. Deep brown locks fell over his forehead and touched the tips of his ears.
“Hello, my Sun.” Full lips curved into a smile, revealing perfect teeth. And just like that, all their hopeful plans for escape blew away like grains of sand on the desert floor.
Her heart crumpled.
Would she ever be free?

Spread Some Indie Love Blog Hop, 2016



I am excited to share with you some of my favorite Indie Authors. I have read almost all of the books by the authors below. I can only highlight one book from each of these authors. Marcia McClure's books are all about the kisses. Ginger Scott writes about tough love. Quinn Loftis writes the paranormal and she is sooo funny!The books shown are just some of the first in the series! All but Quinn's books can be read as stand alones. After you're done here go down and click on the next blog to see what other amazing Indie Authors are out there. Hosted by b00kr3vi3wsNow check it out...


Divine Deception (Love Notes, #7) by Marcia Lynn McClure.
Audience/Genre: Historical Fiction, Clean Romance.
Publication: October 14th 2007.
Mistreated, disheartened, and trapped, Fallon Ashby unexpectedly found the chance of swift deliverance at the hand of a wealthy landowner. The mysterious deliverer offered Fallon escape from unendurable circumstances. Thus, Fallon chose to marry Trader Donavon, a man who concealed his face within the dark shadows of an ominous black hood—a man who unknowingly held her heart captive.
Yet malicious villainy, intent on destroying Trader Donavon, set out to defeat him. Would evil succeed in overpowering the man whose face Fallon had never seen? The ever-hooded hero Fallon silently loved above all else?


Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Marcia Lynn McClure grew up influenced by the reminiscent stories of rugged, rural Colorado farm life fascinatingly recounted to her by her parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts…tales of runaway buckboards, mule-drawn plows and dust pneumonia; verbalized images of stream-flooded meadows, frozen over in winter, where a child could peer through the crystal clear ice in wonder at the small fish, snakes and mice sealed in the meadow grasses beneath; stories of hardship and tragedy, love and loss. But always the stories, and the people telling them, bore evidence of the wonder and worthiness of simpler, yet sometimes brutal, times.

These influential people and the family legends they detailed, coupled with her own life experiences and utterly romantic nature, led Marcia to begin writing novels as Christmas gifts for her closest friends…friends who long for a breath of the past and miss the romance of bygone eras; friends searching for moments of distraction from the stressful, demanding times we live in.

And so, knowing that it is the breath of the past and the "take me in you arms and kiss me" kind of moments that so many women long to relive, Marcia spins her tales of love, life and laughter…adventures woven around those compelling, romantic instances that most appeal to a woman's loving heart. Marcia feels that if her readers close one of her books with a contented sigh and a delighted smile, feeling rejuvenated, cheerful and edified, then she has achieved what she set out to do…shower refreshment and happiness on anyone having experienced the story.

Marcia lives in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. There she writes her stories surrounded by her beloved friends and family...and the beautiful desert landscape of New Mexico!





This is Falling (Falling #1) by Ginger Scott.
Audience/Genre: New Adult,Contemporary Romance.
Publication: August 29th 2014.
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.



Ginger Scott is a writer and journalist from Peoria, Arizona. She is the author of four young and new adult romances, with her fifth title, This Is Falling, set to release in late August 2014.

Scott is married to her college sweetheart whom she met at ASU (fork 'em, Devils).




Prince of Wolves (The Grey Wolves #1) by Quinn Loftis.
Audience/Genre: Upper Young Adult, Paranormal Romance, Humor.
Publication: June 29th 2011.
Jacque Pierce was just an ordinary 17-year-old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two weeks of their summer are going to get a lot more interesting.

From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis lupis, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul.

The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas.

Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane's mate and complete the bond between them?


Quinn lives in beautiful NW Arkansas with her husband, son, Doberman and cat (who thinks she is a ninja in disguise). She is beyond thankful that she has been blessed to be able to write full time and hopes the readers know how much all of their support means to her. Some of her hobbies include reading, exercising, crochet, and spending time with family and friends. She gives all credit of her success to God because he gave her the creative spirit and vivid imagination it takes to write.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: In Your Dreams (Falling #4) by Ginger Scott



In Your Dreams (Falling #4)
by Ginger Scott.
Audience/Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: March 29th 2016 by Ginger Scott.
Casey Coffield has a growing list of personal flaws he keeps locked away in his head:
He’s never on time.
His list of IOUs to his best friend is endless.
Money is always short.
Goals are never in reach.

Oh, and he’s decided to add college drop-out to that list, too. He doesn’t really think that last one’s such a bad thing, but his family insists it is, so it stays on the list.

On paper, he’s a zero. But in person, when he’s mixing tracks for a sea of bodies at the hottest clubs and parties, he’s downright irresistible. Just-right stubble on his chin, body of a boxer and a smirk that stimulates all the right nerves—women have never been a problem. They flock to his swagger and fall for his charm…fast.

All except for this one.

Purple hair, gray eyes, a raspy voice and sass, Murphy Sullivan is a little bit country and a little bit rock-n-roll. And her and Casey? They have history. He can’t remember it, but she wrote a song about him—and it’s not exactly a love song. But it is good. Damn good. And uncovering her inspiration just might be the key to solving a few of his shortcomings—not to mention open doors to his own big break in the music industry.

But sometimes dreams get messy when they collide. Sometimes life changes patterns. A past paints the wrong picture and futures get cloudy. The only question that remains is who will you choose when the dust settles—you? Or the girl of your dreams?


Reviewed by Kelly

It’s funny that I didn’t realize there is one place in the book that really clenches the meaning of the title until I was finished and looked at the title again. Just a random thought there!

I love Ginger Scott’s writing and I don’t even look at the title anymore or the blurb I just sign up for whatever she writes. I always relax as soon as I start because it always just pulls me in. She writes moments where I am just laughing hard and also where I tear up a little at the sweet moments too. It is told in both Casey and Murphy’s points of views. Also we get to peak in on some characters from the previous book. Bonus!

I love this quote, it makes me laugh...

“Go on. It’s not much, but… it’s really not much now that I dropped it on the ground,” he grimaces. “And I brought chocolates, but I ate four of them in the car because, well…I thought I might be in there for a while-ax and all.” “Four?” I ask, noticing the completely empty top layer exposed in the small box by his hand. “Maybe six…” he smirks. “Okay, seven. Fine. Eight.”

And this quote too..

(He) manages to walk me backward into the small nook at the far end of the bar. "Oh...oh no you don't," I start, my heart beating hard as I put my palm flat on his chest, which is...hot. It's warm, I mean. But it's also hot. And hard. And really big and immovable. My eyebrows narrow, and I push harder as his arms fall to his sides and his thumbs find his pockets. "What are you, like a bouncer on the side? Were you always this... big? I look up realizing what I said and the right side of his mouth ticks up. Jedi dimple. I roll my eyes in response. "Stocky," I say, my lips pursed. "I mean stocky. And...pushy. I definitely mean pushy."

Ms Scott’s characters are always flawed and by the end they grow and you can’t help to fall in love with them. And I did as usual; fall in love with Casey and Murphy that is! Casey’s family has made him feeling like he will never amount to anything if he follows his dreams and not something that is responsible and will be relevant to the world. Casey wants to be someone in the music industry, not to sing but to make someone’s music good. It’s a hard road and may not be fruitful. He also feels like he is selfish and a jerk. But he’s not, not really.

Murphy has a wonderful family who love her. They do things together. She has a brother who has Down’s syndrome and she loves him. Casey really likes him too. Murphy sings and she is good. Casey just knows she needs to be singing for the world. He tries to help and hooks her up with his boss. Murphy has a secret too. It affects her talking with other people. She’s sweet but she is also a little shy.

This is the story of two people and how they help each other and would sacrifice for the other. Funny they never would have really talked if it hadn’t been for a song that Murphy made that was put on You Tube with Casey Coffield’s name in it. They are like strangers at first and they slowly find something in each other that they like and they want the best for the other. They are willing to be there for each other first and then fall for the other next. That’s what I really liked; how they slowly became friends and then something more!

I prefer the closed door on sex. I have learned to skim over it now. I am not a fan of the F word either. But I tolerate it. What I don’t like is some crass words and there were some here. It just makes moments of intimacy less sweet and more distasteful to me. I am pretty sure it wasn’t in the previous books and maybe it doesn’t bother you but it bothered me. But that is what I like and is no reflection on the author.

I recommend this book to lover’s of New Adult, Tums, flying, dancing at clubs, biore strips, music, overcoming your shortcomings, learning to step up to the plate, being clumsy, laughing, sacrificing and being totally selfless, finding your dreams than you might just love it too!

If you were a pilot, I’d let you fly me to the moon

Cover Reveal: Rose Petal Graves by Olivia Wildenstein

Rose Petal Graves
by Olivia Wildenstein.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal.
Publication: July 15th 2016.
I thought losing my mother would be the greatest shock of my life, but the greatest shock came after her death.

Founded two centuries ago by an aloof and powerful tribe of Gottwa Indians, Rowan was a quiet town, so quiet that I fled after graduation. Staying away was the plan, but Mom died suddenly, so I rushed home.

Dad said she suffered a stroke after she dug up one of the ancient graves in our backyard, which happens to be the town cemetery. Creepy, I know. Creepier still, there was no corpse inside the old coffin, only fresh rose petals.

As we made preparations for Mom’s burial, Cruz, the new medical examiner, arrived. I should have felt relieved, but how could I? He was unnervingly handsome, glowed like a human firefly, and knew absolutely nothing about examining dead bodies.

But, he did know what killed my mother…or rather who.






Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree.

When she’s not writing, she’s psychoanalyzing everyone she meets (Yes. Everyone), eavesdropping on conversations to gather material for her next book, baking up a storm (that she actually eats), going to the gym (because she eats), and attempting not to be late at her children’s school (like she is 4 out of 5 mornings, on good weeks).

Wildenstein lives with her husband and three children in Geneva, Switzerland, where she’s an active member of the writing community.
