Entwine - Rebecca Berto - eBook

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00028]

Cover by: Berto Designs

Releasing in late November 2013

Sarah Langham’s life was the epitome of normal until her dad slept with another woman when she was sixteen. It ripped her family apart.

Twenty-two-year-old Sarah has it together, though.

Waiting at the train station to go home from her first day of her first proper job out of university, she spots a man.

He is an enigma to her. She’s drawn to him, with his square jaw; buzz of hair; and his tall, solid frame, seen under the contours of his business suit. And he’s been looking at her, too. Fate pulls them together that night on a whirlwind date, exceeding anything Sarah’s experienced before. He’s even more into her than she’s into him. Finally, she wants to trust a guy for the first time since she was sixteen.

But then they discover something.

Something that meant they were never two strangers at a train station.

And it threatens to tear their future apart before it, really, ever begins.

Author: Rebecca Berto
Series: Pulling Me Under #1
Age group: Adult
Genre: Women’s Fiction with crossover with Suspense
Publication date: October 2013

Paul was Katie’s rock for thirteen years, but then she watched him die.

By day, she is left with her daughter Ella’s questions about where Daddy went, and at night she’s consumed with nightmares of the moment he died. It isn’t long before Katie’s mother hints that her volatile lifestyle and developing drinking habits are no way to raise a little girl.

Through it all, her and Paul’s best friend, Liam is there. Grieving the death of both husband and friend, the time they spend together seems more intimate these days, and Katie soon stumbles into taboo territory: Liam might be in love with her.

Torn between Liam’s feelings and losing Ella, one night Katie runs.

Air. Space. Thinking time. That’s what she thinks she’s getting when she stumbles upon that party. In the morning, in a strange bed, she can’t remember the night before.

Pulling Me Under is raw in its brutality of love and pain, with slow-building suspense to a heart-stopping conclusion.

Being Kalli by Rebecca Berto Cover Reveal Event!

Being Kalli.v2.2.1Being Kalli by Rebecca Berto
Publication date: TBA
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Synopsis:

There are two things you should know about Kalli Perkins.

1. She’d rather do it in public than be alone with a guy.

2. She loves her little brothers more than her mom does.

Kalli doesn’t pretend to be a good girl. At nineteen, she’s never been in love and doesn’t ever intend to be. She has her issues handled. She’s managed to keep the secret of what happened to her nine years ago from her mother, although her mother’s usually high anyway and barely notices Kalli or her little brothers.

One night at a party, Kalli makes a bet with her friend, Nate, that could change everything. Their friend, Scout, tells them there’s no uncrossing the friendship line once it’s crossed—even though they were both drunk. But Kalli can’t imagine how anyone could want her damaged self for anything more.

She didn’t count on Nate. Nate’s very capable of satisfying her not only under her clothes, but in her heart, too.

She just doesn’t know it yet.

Wide Awake by Shelly Crane Promotional Event!

He smiled that Mason smile that set me on fire all over. Then he put one hand on the other side on the hospital bed and the other lifted toward my face. I waited, bated breath, gulping, sweaty palms, fluttering eyes, the works. His face got so close before he stopped. I thought he had decided against whatever he was doing he waited so long. I began to pull back in disappointment, but he reached behind my neck gently and pulled me to him. The barest of touches was the best way to describe our first kiss. It wasn’t really a kiss at all. His bottom lip barely brushed my top one. When he leaned back and opened his eyes, he must’ve seen the confusion and frustration in my face.

He chuckled. “I just had to taste that coconut…” he licked his lips, “but I don’t want to kiss you when you’ve been angry at me and I messed up our date.” He said ‘date’. Like…a date. “I want to kiss you when if we go another second without it, one of us will combust.”

My breaths were raging. I tried to calm myself. “I…” I failed.

“I want to give you back your first kiss, the one that jerk stole from you. And I want it to be something that even a coma can’t make you forget.”

A life she can’t remember.

When Emma Walker wakes up in the hospital with no knowledge of how she got there, she learns that she’s been in a coma for six months. Strangers show up and claim to be her parents, but she can’t remember them. She can’t remember anyone. Not her friends, not even her boyfriend. Even though she can’t remember, everyone wants her to just pick up where she left off, but what she learns about the ‘old her’ makes her start to wish she’d never woken up. Her boyfriend breaks up with the new girl he’s dating to be with her, her parents want her to start planning for college, her friends want their leader back, and her physical therapist with the hazel eyes keeps his distance to save his position at the hospital.

Will she ever feel like she recognizes the girl in the mirror?

DateMe BNAuthor: Jillian Dodd

Title: Date Me (Keatyn Chronicles, #3)

Release date(s):

DATE ME is anticipated to release April 9, 2013

Age Group: Mature YA

Genre: Romance

DATE ME link:

Goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16173484-date-me

Book description for Date Me (Keatyn Chronicles, #3):

I’m not scripting my life anymore.

I’m living it.

I’m done with the God of all Hotties.

I’m going to give my heart to the boy who I think deserves it.

The boy whose kisses are hotter than molten lava.

The boy who offered me the key to his heart.

The boy who asked me to Homecoming in a big, sexy way.

There are so many things to look forward to.

Parties at the Cave. Homecoming festivities. Drama Tryouts. Shopping trips to NY.

But things aren’t always as perfect as they seem.

I find out that my best friend has been keeping a secret from me.

Not that I can blame him.

I have secrets too.

But, for now, I’m going to pretend I’m just a normal girl.

I’m going to pretend he’s not still out there.

I’m going to pretend he’s not getting desperate.

I’m going to pretend I’ll never see him again.

But, I will.

And this time, I might not get away.

Review

So as if this series wasn’t already exciting as is, Jillian does a great job on her third installment of the Keatyn Chronicles! We see our little Keatyn do a lot of growing up in this book, and its endearing to see how much she is learning about herself throughout not only this book, but the series as a whole! What would I rate this book? 4.5 our of 5 stars! Why? While I LOVED the story as a whole, I felt that there were spots that both lacked in excitement (as in it was a little too slow for my liking) and a few places where I felt that Jillian could have pushed both herself and the story just a little more. Book #3 was still, by far, the best of the series!  Do I recommend it? Oh you know I do! I can’t wait to see where Keatyn goes from this point, and boy… if you think you’ve seen the best from little Keatyn, you are sadly mistaken! Make sure to check it out! Defiantly a must read! I honestly can’t say much more without spoiling the whole story for everyone else… so just take my advice, pick this one up and get lost in it!

Hey readers! Today’s an exciting day because here at Today’s Literature, I’m taking a look at New Adult/Adult author, Ruth Clampett’s new book, “Animate Me”, and obviously we are taking part in her cover reveal event! Lets take a look at what the book and author are all about, shall we?

Book Description:

She seemed far beyond his reach…could love draw them together?

For years shy animator Nathan has carried a torch for Brooke, the beautiful and dynamic Director of Development at their animation studio, even creating B-Girl, a comic-book heroine in her likeness. When a new project throws the two of them together, lovestruck Nathan finally seizes his moment – only to find Arnauld, head of the animation studio, claiming exclusive rights to Brooke’s affections.

But Nathan, it turns out, is not giving up on his dreams so easily. With inspired determination, he sets out to be the super hero of wooing his girl. Threatened by his persistence, Arnauld plays dirty – only to spark an uprising at the studio that unleashes the sort of havoc only a building full of frustrated animators can create.  While Nathan pulls out all the stops to win his B-girl, Brooke has to choose. Should she pursue the sparkling career that has taken her years to build…or follow her heart?

The Samantha Project (Book 1, The Samantha Project series) by Stephanie Karpinske Review and Giveaway Event!

Samantha ProjectTitle: The Samantha Project (Book 1, The Samantha Project series)

Author: Stephanie Karpinske

Release date: November 15, 2012

Genre: science fiction romance thriller

Age Group: YA

Publisher: Crazy Dream Publishing, LLC

Seventeen-year-old Samantha Andrews has a seemingly perfect life; great parents, early admission to Stanford, and a boyfriend who just happens to be the hottest guy in school. But a dark secret from her past turns her world upside down. Sam discovers she’s part of a global corporation’s genetic enhancement project. And just as she’s learning what these enhanced genes can do, the corporation decides they want her, and the technology inside her, back!

During a heart-pounding race to flee from her pursuers, she encounters another person who was part of the experimental project. He’s tall, blond, tan and completely irresistible! And he can read her thoughts!! Together, they’re both in danger and a rogue scientist discovers yet another secret lies inside them.

So I know it’s been a little while sense my last review, but I have to say! I’ve been crazy busy, reading a few pretty great books, this one included! What do I rate this book? A solid 3 ½ out of 5 stars. Now, some might see this rating as poor or even mediocre, but don’t make that mistake with me! I took a huge leap of faith with this book and went completely outside my comfort zone. Science fiction romance is defiantly not my type of book, but I have to say, Stephanie Karpinske did a great job with this one!

The story starts off with a rather bland, average “perfect” girl. She’s pretty, smart, laid back, and has great friends and an amazing relationship with her parents. Would I have started a story like that? No, not really, but Karpinske starts throwing in some major curve balls to readers really fast! With one major even after another, readers get lost in all the events that go down. If you want a summary, just reread the above! Because it was a little out of my comfort zone, the story did progress a little slow in the beginning for me, and that was the main reason for the docked points. It was hard to get into, but once the action really picked up, the ball really got rolling! For something I thought I wouldn’t be into, this was truly one heck of a read!

Now for the even bigger news! This blog is taking part in a giveaway event for this book! You must get your entries in by the 6th of March and the easiest way is to like us on facebook so we can contact you if you do win! The copy of the book will either be a mobi or epub format, and if you do win I’ll need your email so we can send you your winnings!

Crushed by a tragedy

Charlee May’s been crushing on Dexter Hollingworth since she was fifteen. Five years later, a horrific skiing disaster at Mason’s Ski Lift Resort leaves her millionaire dad critically injured and her mom dead at the hands of Dexter operating the lifts. Charlee is suddenly the sole caretaker for her little brother while their world falls apart.

Dexter couldn’t be more different from Charlee. He’s tattooed, avoids exclusive relationships and his Dad has a fair share of illegal dealings. With Dexter’s reputation, almost everyone believes he planned the Mason’s skiing disaster.

And after all these years he’s still crushing on Charlee May, the girl who’s too good for him.
