Trailer Reveal – Defective by B Austin

 

 

Defective (Outcast #1)

by B. Austin

Genre: YA Scifi/Dystopian

Release Date: August 13th 2016



Summary from Goodreads:



What type of people applies the word Defective to healthy young humans? In a society where rebels are unwanted, the Outcasts have their own underground world beneath the streets of New York City.

It is almost a perfect Earth. One government rules—the Commonwealth and there is one people—the Commoners. The pure social order of the Commonwealth has but one contamination, Outcasts—rebellious young adults who for some puzzling reason cannot or will not conform.

When Dante’s girlfriend vanishes like thousands of other Outcasts before her, he enlists the aid of friends to find her. They discover the shocking secret of what extreme the Commonwealth will go to ensure that Outcasts reform and obey the rules!

Release Blitz – Follow You Anywhere by Cassie Leigh #LovesGreatReadsBlog

Title: Follow You Anywhere

Series: Haunted Romance #2

Author: Cassie Leigh

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date: August 30, 2016

Looking in the past, you can find your future.

Finally ready to start over on her own terms, Bettina Brandt is letting go of the horrors of her past marriage and moving on. Used to the confines of her ex-husband’s rules and regulations, she’s excited to go on a ghost hunt of an old Victorian boarding house with her friends. But when strange events begin to emerge, Bettina is convinced something followed her home.

Seth Hynek accepts the solitude of his afterlife. Brooding and reliving the hellish memories of World War II are more tolerable when he’s alone. But something changes when he sets out to scare off the group of women who’ve invaded his home. One of the women sparks something in him–something he can’t identify. Keen to know more about Bettina, he follows her home, realizing he can communicate with her through her dreams. But when Bettina’s ex-husband finds her and threatens her, Seth fears he can’t protect her. Once again, Seth is haunted by the idea that he can’t save the one woman who needs him the most. With their pasts colliding with the present, will their ghostly romance end before they can find a way to create a future together?

CASSIE LEIGH specializes in all things paranormal romance but holds a special place in her heart for a good ghost story. Her goal as a writer is to transform the trials and tribulations of family history and turn it on its head using the paranormal world of spirits, vampires, and were-animals. With the help of her husband, she carves out time to write while raising five children, working full time and obsessing over her midcentury modern dream home.

REDRed: The Untold Story
by Angela M. Hudson
Genre: YA Fairytale Retelling
Release Date: July 25th 2016

Summary from Goodreads:

A powerful new YA novel by award-winning dark romance author AM Hudson.

Do not go gentle into the wolf’s asylum…

Once every twenty years, pack alpha Luther takes a new wife. On the day of Selection, Red is chosen. Just as her family always planned. Just as she always planned. Until she met Alex Plain.

Alex took Red to worlds she never imagined, where the ordinary is seen as magical, and the upright is abstract. With the help of this new friendship, Red begins to see a future for herself outside of the pack. But, unfortunately, Alex Plain came along too late.

Red is obligated to marry Luther now, and taken to live in the mysterious Ravenswood Mansion, where truth lies and the walls have eyes. What Red learns there about her alpha will ignite some burning questions—ones that, when answered, could undo the entire order of the pack:

What happened to all the children born there? Why hasn’t this mansion left the seventeenth century? And where are all his previous wives?

My Review:

This was not what I was expecting, there were so many twists and turns, and I loved it! I was expecting more of a “Little Red Riding Hood” retelling, the off to grandma’s house and the wolf pursuing her kind of thing. The only part that made me think of the fairy-tale was her name and the wolf. So then I was thinking a love story between Red and the Wolf, and I won’t tell you if it is or isn’t (ha ha ha I’m evil), that is where the unexpected twists and turns come in. I really enjoyed the characters, Alex, George, and Plain were people I would LOVE to hang out with, full of imagination and wonder. I would’ve liked a bit more of the magic. It was a mixture of real magic with spells and something as simple as a rainbow created by the rain and sun. Not really magic, we know the reason behind it, but seeing it as something magical. This was a fun read and I look forward to reading more from this author.

Book Blitz – Consumed by Elizabeth Miceli

Consumed
Elizabeth Miceli
(Barren, #2)
Published by: Swoon Romance
Publication date: August 31st 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult

Stacey Lorenzo has finished treatment, but is still devastated by her past as she enters college. With drugs and alcohol so readily available, so much freedom, and barely any supervision, Stacey falls back into old habits. Soon it’s a daily dose of partying, self-medicating, and having sex with lots of different guys. As her relationship with Eli destructs, she falls for Jesse, who just so happens to be a drug dealer. Every time she starts to fall back into the memories of her past, Jesse makes it easy to snort away the pain.

But she snorts too much one night; it forces her to question the man she loves and acknowledge her mental and emotional instability. In the second installment of The Barren Series, Stacey must overcome her addiction and make peace with her past if she is ever to be truly happy again.

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

      I was never going to be normal. I was fucked up. I was a slut. I was a whore. I deserved to be raped. I was disgusting. I was never going to be happy.

I was rocking back and forth, rubbing my arms, trying to calm myself down. I didn’t know if I was having a panic attack or a heart attack. My chest burned, and my breathing became labored. Jesse looked petrified but didn’t waste time. He made a long, thick line for me. I bent over, and inhaled the coke into my nostril.

I started to breathe again. Jesse stood over me, watching me as I calmed down. Eventually, I wasn’t rocking anymore, and my chest pains went away. Just as that happened, the little butterflies flittered across my view. Lights sparkled at the periphery of my vision.

“Are you okay?” he asked me, now that I was calm.

“Yeah,” I said. “I’m fine now.”

Blurb From Goodreads:

Princess Adriana is about to leave the Kingdom of Ayrden on the Journey of her sixteenth year.

If she is ever to ascend to the throne, Adriana must go—alone and unarmed—into the unknown. She’s been trained and gifted for the journey, just like all the royals who preceded her—even the ones who never returned.

Adriana leaves Ayrden on her brother’s black stallion the day after her birthday celebration, with bravery in her heart and hopes for a quick return. When three paths emerge, one of grass, one of gold, and one of gemstones, she chooses the pragmatic path of grass. Although it seems safe, and the landscape familiar, she soon finds she will have to overcome nearly impossible challenges. Ultimately, an unexpected friendship not only changes Adriana, but the very kingdom she someday hopes to rule. The question is, will the friendship turn into everlasting love?

My Review:

Oh man I hope this is a series! I absolutely LOVED this story! The world that Ms. Stump created was riveting and magical, I couldn’t wait to see where Adriana’s journey was going to take her next. The fact that her journey was more about her choices than it was the destination pulled me in even more. There was no way to predict how, where, what, anything really and that was so refreshing. Usually the antagonist is a person, clearly defined, but in this story the antagonist seemed to be the consequence of a decision, good or bad. Yes, there were characters that were antagonistic that Adriana had to escape from or outmaneuver but the constant was pretty much her mind. This is a great story to help show someone, young or old, that our decisions/reactions shape the outcome of any situation. And if our actions shape an outcome then it stands to reason that it’s the same for everyone and the only thing we can control is ourselves. It’s almost freeing when that fact is realized, ultimately your choices are yours. Yes, they can be influenced by outside forces but once a decision is made it was completely your choice and there is no one to blame but yourself if it was the wrong choice. The world would be a better place if more people would realize that. Kudos Ms. Stump for having such a powerful lesson in what I believe was such a fun story!

FB-ad-3Exclusive Excerpt:

“Let me have her.” I held my hands in the direction of Colin, who’d been pacing with Charlotte in his arms. She was the only happy person in the room and had entertained herself for the past ten minutes by chewing on her fist.

He deposited her into my arms and resumed pacing. She grabbed at my chunky silver necklace and lunged for my curls. I knew she wanted to play peek-a-boo in my hair because lately that was her favorite entertainment.

“No, babykins. Let’s leave Mommy’s hair alone for tonight.” I swept my curls back with my free hand, and she giggled into my chest. My hair had grown even longer in Caleb’s absence, since I hadn’t had the desire to do anything with it. But my hair didn’t matter, Charlotte’s slobbery little mouth didn’t matter, nothing mattered. We were about to be a family—for the first time.

A surge went through me. I was giddy. Manic, even, at the thought of Caleb’s return.

I blew a fart noise on Charlotte’s cheek and she laughed more.

Bouncing Charlotte on my hip, we turned again to the window, and she reached her chubby hand to the glass, as if trying to touch the night. I’d dressed her in a frothy, hot pink dress with a tulle skirt. She looked unbearably adorable, and it would be impossible for Caleb not to recognize his own child with big blue eyes so identical to his.

Colin’s phone buzzed. “It’s him.” He inhaled sharply, then answered and grinned. “Hey. Yeah, we’re all here. Okay.” He hung up. “Caleb and Dad and Mom are in the lobby.”

Laura gave a little muffled cry and hugged Sarah, who stared hard at me over Laura’s shoulder.

“I’m fine,” I mouthed to her, not feeling fine at all. I kissed Charlotte’s cheek. “Daddy’s home,” I whispered, trying not to shake too much. Charlotte seemed unusually heavy.

After a few seconds, a nervous, barking laugh escaped my lips. “How long does it take for the elevator to crawl up here?”

No one responded.

Then, the ding of the elevator bell.

The sliding open of the doors.

And my husband walked in.
