Interview with Paul Grzegorzek, author of Flare

Paul Grzegorzek

Malcolm King is a journalist living in trendy Hove on the south coast of England. His days are taken up with video meetings and research on the internet while he writes articles for magazines around the world.

When a solar flare of unprecedented magnitude hits the Earth, effectively hurling us back to the stone age in a matter of hours, Malc is thrust into a terrifying new world as he travels the length of the country to find his young daughter.

Society, a fragile construct at best, shatters as the survivors fight each other for food and water, neighbour killing neighbour as fires rage through the cities, destroying much of what's left.

Faced with difficult choices at every turn, Malc draws his strength from those around him; Emily, a tough, no-nonsense soldier with a soft spot for lost causes and Jerry, a disgraced astrophysicist who may be the only person left who understands what's happening with the sun.

With their help, he must struggle to answer the ultimate question.

What won't he do to get his daughter back?

Today I have a mini-interview that I did with author Paul Grzegorzek about his book Flare!  I can't lie - this book looks awesome and I can't wait to read it!!

The Edge of Hope
Alina Popescu

When tall, dark, and gorgeous shows up on your self-prescribed emotional recovery vacation, some would call it fate smiling down on you.

Alexa skips the doubts and jumps right in, only to be thrown into the mysterious world of vampires.

They are ancient, they are powerful, they have unlimited resources, and they are keen on controlling what the world knows of their kind. As Alexa discovers their complicated, blood feud bound world, she tries to better understand herself, heal old wounds and give love chance after chance. Will she survive the journey?
Today I have an excerpt from Alina Popescu's The Edge of Hope, and a giveaway!  If you like a different take on vampires, you definitely will want to check this book out!!

Liam: Branded Brothers by Raen Smith (Review)

Title: Liam: Branded Brothers
Series:  I think this will be book one!
Author: Raen Smith
Published: April  2014
Format: Egalley, Thank you Raen Smith!

One letter can change it all...

When caregiver Charla Tayor arrives at the isolated cottage of a man suffering with Alzheimer's, she's given one instruction to carry out upon his death: to deliver a letter to a man named Liam Murphy. Three years later, she's face-to-face with the letter's recipient, a tattooed Irish Bounty Hunter who's exactly the type of man she's trying to avoid.

But Charla can't ignore their undeniable connection as Liam drags her deeper into her patient's troubled past. Just as she's opening her heart, her life teeters on a dangerous edge, and there's only one man who can save her.

I picked this book up on NetGalley on a whim.  The cover was pretty good, and the blurb sounded pretty damn good.  By the time I finished the book, I was excited and eager for book two.  I haven't really seen anything that says there will for sure be a book two, but I am crossing my fingers!

Don't Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski (Review)

Title: Don't Even Think About It
Series: Don't Even Think About It #1
Author: Sarah Mlynowski
Published: March 2014 Delacorte Press
Format: Egalley
Contemporary teen fiction with romance, secrets, scandals, and ESP from the author of Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn't Have).

We weren't always like this. We used to be average New York City high school sophomores. Until our homeroom went for flu shots. We were prepared for some side effects. Maybe a headache. Maybe a sore arm. We definitely didn't expect to get telepathic powers. But suddenly we could hear what everyone was thinking. Our friends. Our parents. Our crushes. Now we all know that Tess is in love with her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That, um, Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper.

Since we've kept our freakish skill a secret, we can sit next to the class brainiac and ace our tests. We can dump our boyfriends right before they dump us. We know what our friends really think of our jeans, our breath, our new bangs. We always know what's coming. Some of us will thrive. Some of us will crack. None of us will ever be the same.

So stop obsessing about your ex. We're always listening.

I picked this book up from NetGalley, hoping for something different.  I was getting over-romanced, and I needed a break.  Don't Even Think About It sounded like it would be a fun book.  Young Adult, but fun nonetheless.

Interview & Giveaway with A.S. Fenichel, author of Joshua's Mistake

Joshua's Mistake
A.S. Fenichel

Accused of treason and the murder of her Psychic Special Forces team, Tessa is in the custody of the FBI. She’s shocked and terrified when the most powerful Psi Agent in the world shows up to probe her mind and discover her guilt or innocence.

Joshua never expected to find a victim of one of his probes attractive, but he can’t seem to leave her behind when all hell breaks loose. Saving the stunning blonde means being drawn into a psychic war that will definitely end his career—and likely both of their lives.

The rhythm of their psychic auras hums to perfection and neither can fight the bond, but it’s all ripped away by a madman with a grudge. Tessa falls into a coma, and Joshua will have to risk his heart and soul to pull her back from the brink.

Hey everyone!  Today I have an interview I've done with author A.S. Fenichel, and a giveaway for the book before Joshua's Mistake,  Kane's Bounty.  Hope you enjoy it, and let us know what you think!

Imaginary Lines by Allison Parr (Review, Dreamcast, Giveaway)

Title: Imaginary Lines
Series: New York Leopards #3
Author: Allison Parr
Published: April 14, 2014 Carina Press
Format: Ebook received for review

Tamar Rosenfeld has been in love with New York Leopards linebacker Abraham Krasner since they were twelve years old. She'd always considered it destiny that they'd end up together…until Abe was drafted and she professed her feelings in a moment of blind excitement. The sting of his rejection was like nothing she'd ever felt before, and it's nothing she'll ever forget.

Older and wiser, Tamar has landed a dream job as a reporter for one of New York's premier athletic websites. Determined to stop being the safe, boring girl she's felt like for most of her life, Tamar makes a list of all the things she wants to do and see in her new city, and Getting Over Abraham is priority number one.

But destiny has finally chosen to interfere. Just as Tamar's decided to move on, Abe's realized she's the only woman for him. When he confides the truth, Tamar has to decide if she can put her crush behind her, or take a chance on the very man who's been holding her back all these years.

Imaginary Lines by Allison Parr, was admittedly a slow start for me.  The first few chapters felt a bit off to me, and I was worried about how I would feel about the rest of the book.  But then everything clicked into place, action started heating up, and as it turned out, I loved Tamar and Abe's story.
