Review | Playing at Love by Ophelia London

Sooooooooo I really likes this book!  You totally need to check it out!   It is an adult book but it is clean because of the publisher; it's a Bliss imprint from Entangled. It's a nice real life contemporary romance.  Ok so here we go!

Show choir teacher Tess Johansson loves three things: music, her job, and sharing that passion with her students. But when a school budget crisis forces funding to be pulled from either the sports or music programs, she finds herself going head to head with Jack, the gorgeous new football coach who broke her heart fifteen years ago.
Jack Marshall wants two things: to be closer to his young daughter and to make his mark as a football coach. Taking the new job, with the promise that he’d have time to build a solid team, gave him both. But now he must win the season with a group of boys who aren't anywhere near ready or he’ll lose everything he’s worked so hard for. Being pitted against Tess, the summer love he never forgot, is like b…

Review | In Bed With The Opposition by Stephanie Draven

Adult Book - You have been warned - If you are underage, please get permission before reading
moving on...  Today I am reviewing In Bed With The Opposition by Stephanie Draven.  
Description: Armed with a sassy haircut, a sharp wit, and a personal list of rules for all life's exigencies, Grace Santiago is a fiercely loyal Senate staffer who has everything under control. At least until famous political pundit Ethan Castle walks back into her life. Grace hasn't forgotten their disastrous affair in law school, but she can't resist his bad boy charm.
When Grace learns that Ethan has been hired as a political gunslinger for the other side, her loyalties—and her heart—are torn in two. Though their sexual chemistry can't be denied, they find themselves locked in political combat. Ethan believes that all is fair in love and war, but he won't throw the election—not even to win Grace's heart. So what can a good girl like Grace do, but learn to play dirty?
Two candidates. …

I am so pissed!

What is wrong with people?!

I am so ANGRY & PISSED right now!  Why do people think it is ok to steal from authors?!  I do not understand...  And since this is mine I'm going to voice my opinion here.
WHY?  Please some one explain to me why!?  I am so angry right now...   eBooks are not expensive - which is why I DO NOT UNDERSTAND!  Please pay the couple of bucks to purchase the book from a real bookseller!  I have heard all kinds of excuses - my favorite... and I mean that as sarcastically as possible - is I didn't know it was an illegal copy.  REALLY?! I call BS on that every single time.  Sharing sites are so bogus - unless you are sharing the book through the place you BOUGHT it from (i.e. Amazon or B&N) it's illegal...  if you aren't sure if a book is legit - email the author or the publisher and ask.  It isn't rocket science here folks... use some common sense and find out if a site is legit BEFORE you use it and steal from authors...   Are you wonderin…

Contract for Marriage by Barbara DeLeo

Review | Ashes & Wine by Taryn Elliott

This is an Adult Book… please be aware and don’t read if you are underage without parental permissions.  Ok I’ve said my speech & am stepping off the soapbox; let’s get to reviewing!
Ashes & Wine By Taryn Elliott

Description: Before Tessa met Royal Andreas, her bookstore was on the verge of sinking. And before Tessa met Royal Andreas, she didn't mind being single. But Royal brings in business with monthly wine tastings featuring his family’s signature vintages–and brings Tessa’s heart to a standstill with intense gray eyes that look on her with nothing but cool indifference.
Yet one searing kiss between the stacks gives Tessa a glimpse of the passion smoldering beneath–and a secret pain further revealed when Royal fills in as the musician at a tasting event. Every note of Spanish guitar tells a story of family tragedy, loss, and ongoing suffering that’s made Royal afraid to lean on anyone…even if he needs Tessa’s sweet flavor more than the richest wine. Only her strength can…
