                               About the Author

Shane Morgan is a lover of "interesting" books.
My imagination is always running wild so it's best to collect and organize them into separate stories. My love for writing started the moment I picked up a Nancy Drew book. At a young age I began writing short stories, divulging in a variety of genres; from comedy, drama, to horror and romance. I'm quite intrigued by the otherworldly or things otherwise deemed "impossible." Well, in my opinion, we never really grow up, do we? Thank you Peter Pan, for reminding me that just because we're older on the outside doesn't mean our youth disappears within our hearts.

Unresisting is the first book in my new YA series of the same title. Prepare to join Natasha on her journey of self discovery as she learns to control her powers and use them for good, fighting all the bad along the way. Of course we can't have a girl being alone throughout the story, there has to be some romance thrown in there. And Chace will definitely steal the hearts of every female reader

Cover Reveal: Reaction ( Reflection #2) by Jessica Roberts

            Reaction (Reflection #2)

                                                 by

Harmony…

I’ve previously had that in my life, but only once, briefly, a while ago. It was during the time I’d started my first year of college. My own apartment, a new old car, and a life free of deadbeat stepfathers, all of which was fulfilling enough. But if it wasn’t, I also had a best friend, soul mate, and boyfriend all in one. Yes, life was near perfect.

But one stormy night can change everything…

For many months I rested in a prolonged sleep, fighting for my life. Well, more than fighting for it, also dreaming of it. Dreaming of him. Thank goodness, the dream is over and I’m back in the real world now. And all I want is for everything to return to the way it was. But nothing’s the same; most of all, us.

Once again, I find myself at the crossroads of a ruthless battle, this time not for life, but love. Do I fight for the guy I twice fell for, or do I let her take him away?

Reflection (Reflection #1)
by 
Bright, spunky Heather Robbins has escaped her small hometown and is anxiously beginning her freshman year of college. Rising above her rocky childhood, she’s found a place where good things are finally starting to happen: her own private apartment, refreshing college classes, and an intense attachment to a mysterious and rugged classmate, Nick Richards.

But when her dreamy college life turns out to be nothing more than a wonderful dream while resting in a coma, questions threaten.

Now, Heather must press forward to unlock the real past, and find the answers buried deep in her mind. What she unlocks instead is a roller coaster ride through flashbacks, embellished memories, and a whirlwind romance.

And when it’s all over and she comes face to face with the truth, will she lose everything she’s fallen in love with?

Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway The Color of Grace by Linda Kage







                The Color of Grace

                                                   by
 
Meet sixteen-year-old Grace Indigo:

Hey. When my mother remarried after thirteen years of being a widow, I had to move to a new town and enroll in a new school. Suddenly thrust into an entirely different kind of life, I just wanted to go home. I didn’t want to meet new people, didn’t want to leave my old friends, didn’t want to become a third wheel to my mom and her husband...and I really didn’t want to see Ryder Yates again. Ugh, I still don’t know why I turned down that too-good-to-be-true boy who flirted with me when we were attending separate schools.

But honestly, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It was worse.

Who knew becoming lost in a new life could help a girl find her true colors?

(MY THOUGHTS)
 The Color of Grace is a heart-gripping love story. Linda Kage always touches my heart with laughter and tears in her novels. Kage became one of my favorite authors when I read her first YA Romance novel The Stillburrow Crush.  Kage is an awesome, talented gifted writer. I'm always amazed at the way she can quickly pull me into her story, and have me rooting for her characters from the first page. It’s like I already know the characters and I'm already a part of their story while reading, not on the outside looking in. And an author that can make me feel this way has a beautiful gift, and Linda Kage is that kind of storyteller for me. She’s definitely meant to be a writer.

The main character Grace is a beautiful and strong girl. She’s shy, but not weak. She’s also kind of a nerd. Grace's life is about to change big time. Grace’s father died thirteen years before, and it’s just been her and her mom, but now her mom is getting remarried. Grace didn't realize her mother's new marriage to Barry would mean a new life for her, too: a new school, new friends, new town, and a new warm feeling in her heart for a boy named Ryder Yates. Grace is also experiencing another new feeling; paralyzing fear of her new stepfather.

Ryder is a gorgeous, green eyed, six-foot basketball jock. He’s player number forty-two, and a rich boy who has just about everything. Everything except for who he’d really like to be as a person, and a girl who will not even tell him her name. I fell in love with Ryder. He had me at his great comeback line to Grace when they first met and she told him her name was "not interested".

Teaser: Ryder: “Hey, where’re you going?” His voice, confused yet curious, called after me. “Hey. Why didn’t your mother name you Maybe, or We’ll See, or What’s-Your-Number? That way, we could call our first born Absolutely.”

Ryder definitely became my absolute, most beautiful guy character with that hilarious great, melt-a-girls-heart comeback line.   

The Color of Grace is a standalone novel. Kage in no way leaves Grace and Ryder’s story unfinished. She gives them a beautiful ending, but I would still love more of Grace and Ryder and I’m asking Linda Kage to please continue their story with a New Adult or Adult Romance novel. I highly recommend The Color of Grace as a must read.

Drain You Blog Hop: Review & Giveaway Drain You by M. Beth Bloom


Good Morning! I'm so excited to be a part of the Drain You Blog Hop Giveaway! and I'm so glad I can share this fantastic novel with you. I fell in love with Quinn and James's story! You can also check out more about Author M. Beth Bloom and Drain You publish by Harper Teen at the Blog Hop Launch blogs and the rest of the blogs on the blog hop here: MundieMom.blogspot and Hobbities.blogspot



Drain You

                       Drain You

                                                 by
 
Every night I'd lie there in bed and look out at the hills behind our house, listening. I knew there'd be consequences.

Actions meant reactions. Sunrises meant sunsets. My fear was too permanent, lasting longer than eyeliner, something I wore every day and didn't wash off.

Quinlan Lacey's life is a red carpet of weird fashions, hip bands, random parties, and chilling by the pool with her on-and-off BFF Libby. There's also her boring job (minimum wage), a crushed-out coworker (way too interested), her summer plans (nada), and her parents (totally clueless). Then one night she meets gorgeous James, and Quinn's whole world turns crazy, Technicolor, 3-D, fireworks, whatever.

But with good comes bad and unfortunately, Quinn's new romance brings with it some majorly evil baggage. Now, to make things right, she has to do a lot of things wrong (breaking and entering, kidnapping, lying, you name it).

There's normal, and then there's paranormal, and neither are Quinlan's cup of Diet Coke. Staying sane, cool, in love, and alive isn't so easy breezy.

Paperback, 400 pages

(MY THOUGHTS)
Drain You is really a different kind of book than I normally read. But I fell in love it. M. Beth Bloom’s writing style has a deep, dark and eerie feel to it. There's no doubt Drain You is unique and so are its characters. I had the feeling while reading this novel that Bloom wanted me to dislike her main character, Quinn, but at the same time wanted me to fall in love with her. And I did fall in love. Yes, I wanted to slap her for being a selfish, self-centered little brat, but I also understood her. This is definitely a very different kind of paranormal romance. Bloom plays no games with her dark, sadistic storyline, or the dark characters. And I have to say that I love it. I also loved James, who is Quinn’s vampire boyfriend. James pulls no punches in what he is and what he has to do to live. I loved this totally opposite of Edward. The only thing that did disappoint me was the ending. I felt like it was unfinished—too many questions left unanswered. But I can live with this if there's going to be a sequel. That's how much I did love this book.

Quinn is a pretty messed up girl who thinks the universe centers around her. Though she hates herself for being like this, she just can't seem to change. Even when she tries to help her best friend Libby, she’s only thinking about herself— and not how other people are going to get hurt by her actions—even die because of her selfishness.

I love Quinn and James’s intimate dark romance, but I kept thinking even a dark, sadistic vampire like James has his hands full with a girl like Quinn. I also loved James’s human brother Whit and Morgan. No, there was no love triangle going on with Quinn. Morgan, who is Quinn's friend and co-worker, has feelings for Quinn and was trying to have a relationship with her, but this just left him open for Quinn to easily use him, which Morgan understood this about Quinn. This is why I liked Morgan, he understood this about Quinn and he was a strong, self-assured person and accepted Quinn for who she was. Whit was strong, too, but I felt like he just couldn't handle his feelings for Quinn, and I’m going to have to wait for the second book to really figure his and Quinn’s relationship out.

Drain You is a very dark, eerie, and wicked parnomral novel, and I think you have to really open your mind to read this one to see who the characters are. Dig deeper than just the surface. I love this sinister and wicked side of the Vampire. I recommend Drain You as a fantastic dark read.

 Publisher's Weekly review  "Bloom debuts with a languid, stylish novel that reads like a love letter to cult vampire flicks like The Lost Boys, the work of Francesca Lia Block, and Southern California in the 1990s."
