TT #42 / FPTI #30

BannerI decided to combine the Teaser Tuesday, hosted by MizB from A Daily Rhythm, with the First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Bibliophile By the Sea.


Today I decided to feature Whiskey Kisses By Addison Moore.

Opening:

When I was a girl I’d whisper my wishes and dreams into a jar, screw the lid on tight, and collect them all for someday. My world once had everything – powder blue skies, starry nights lit up like a pirate’s treasure, and wide open meadows I’d run through while taking in vats of fresh North Carolina air. The on a dime, the sun went dark, the stars faded to nothing, and I lacked the oxygen I needed to breathe. The night that my life changed forever, I opened the lid on that silly jar and let all of my wishes and dreams evaporate to nothing into the cold, cruel world I was abandoned in.

Teaser from 2%:

“Leave it to you to balance out equal rights by objectifying the male species.”
“Oh, hon, I ain’t objectifying.”

*SUMMER SALE! Limited Time Only!*

Years after suffering the tragic loss of her husband, Ethan, which left her alone to raise their young daughter, Clare Murray still holds the last letter he wrote with the words “When You’re Ready” written in his familiar messy handwriting, unable to break its weathered seal. Ready for what? He was her entire world, and Clare had accepted a life without him, without love. Until years later, fate brings her to an emergency room, and face to face with a stormy-eyed doctor intent on changing her mind. 

Son of a billionaire, Logan Matthews has spent his life trying to make his absentee father proud. Without a family to depend on, all he’s ever wanted is a place to call home. After a failed marriage, Logan believes he’s unworthy of love…until he meets a woman who awakens his spirit and transforms his entire life in an instant. 

But how far are Clare and Logan willing to go for love? Can his love mend the pieces of her grieving heart? 

When their love is tested, is Clare ready to put her whole heart on the line again? Can Logan learn the true meaning of love, even if it means sacrificing his own happiness? When a second chance at love is given, Clare and Logan learn you are never truly ready until you’re ready to risk it all.

neverbeenreadyAbout NEVER BEEN READY:

*SUMMER SALE! Limited Time Only!*

Leah Morgan was done with men. After barely surviving a horrendous childhood, and a boyfriend who bailed when things got rough, Leah had given up on love. Then she met him, Hollywood’s new golden boy who suddenly had eyes only for her. She tried to convince herself that one night couldn’t hurt, but after six months, the memories of his mesmerizing gaze and searing touch still invaded her every thought. 

Declan James had just one rule when it came to women. Keep it simple, and never linger. That all changed the moment he met Leah. Even across a crowded bar, he could tell she was different. Sweet, with just the right amount of sass, she made him break his golden rule and now he couldn’t walk away. 

When casual becomes anything but, and emotions run deep, will Leah and Declan fight their fears, or let old insecurities tear them apart? When Declan’s past comes roaring back in a way neither of them could have expected, will they stand united or be torn apart by the challenges that lie ahead? 

It was only supposed to be one night, but only forever will do. 

The second novel in the Ready series. Each novel can be read as a standalone.

*SUMMER SALE! Limited Time Only!*

A second chance at first love. 

Eight years ago, Garrett Finnegan’s world shattered the day Mia vanished from his life. He’s been struggling to pick up the pieces ever since. Haunted by memories and ghosts of the past, he chooses a solitary existence rather than risk his heart again. 

Mia Emerson has made one wrong decision after another but none worse than walking away from the boy who stole her heart so long ago. When her new life is turned upside down, she finds herself returning to her roots and the hometown she left behind. Maybe now she can find a way to heal from the devastating mistakes of her past. 

When a chance encounter brings these former lovers together, passion reignites in a way neither is prepared for. Can Garrett move beyond his anger and find a way to forgive? Will Mia’s insecurities and fears cause her to once again flee the life she’s destined to live? 

Garrett and Mia will soon discover that they must journey into the past to find their way home.

readyornotAbout READY OR NOT:

*SUMMER SALE! Limited Time Only!*

When love comes knocking, will they be ready, or not?

Born into wealth and privilege, free-spirited Liv Prescott left it all behind when she realized there was more to life than living off of trust funds and barely skating by. Since then, she’s worked and fought for everything she’s earned and never looked back at the world or the family she left behind.

Jackson Reid is starting over with a new job in a brand new city. A single father to his son Noah, he hopes the change will help strengthen the bond that has seemed to suffer since puberty reared its ugly head. What he hadn’t planned on was Liv–his exotic next-door neighbor who drives him insane with her wild, new age lifestyle, but still manages to leave him aching for more.

 As challenges arise and feelings intensify, will these neighbors be able to look past their differences and find a middle ground?

The fourth book in the Ready Series. Each novel can be read as a standalone.

[Award] Liebster Award – The Second

liebster

I was tagged for this by Jo from Bookloversblog. Check out her post here. Thanks 🙂

I know, I know. I already got and answered this one, but to hell with it. It says nowhere that I’m not allowed to do this twice. So deal with it, folks 😉 Here it comes.

Jo’s Questions

1. What is your favourite genre of novel and why?

If you would have asked me this question half a year ago, I would have answer with “Paranormal Romance!”, but I’m currently discovering the New Adult and Contemporary Romance genre for myself and I’m quite liking it.

My go-to genre will still remain paranormal romance, just because I like the thought of having vampires and werewolves (and whatever you can think of) living right among us.

2. What are your least favourite tropes in YA fiction (if you read it)?

I’m sorry, but I don’t know what a trope is. I looked it up, but I still don’t get it. Is it like a rhetorical device? Stupid german here.

3. Which book first got you interested in reading?

I was one of those children whose parents read to them every night before sleep, so I was always interested in reading.

One of the first books I read by myself was probably “Die Wilden Hühner” (eng. The Summer Gang) by Cornelia Funke. I even have the audio books of those somewhere in a box in my room.

4. Is there a book that still sticks with you long after reading it? Why has it stayed with you?

“Night Unbound” by Dianne Duvall. I just loved it, isn’t that reason enough? 😉

5. What books would you like to past down to your future (or current) children? Why?

Can I say “Die Wilden Hühner” again? It might not be the best children book out there, but I learned a lot from it about friendship and first love. 🙂 I kind of want to read it now … or I’m going to search for the audio books :/

6. What is your ultimate favourite book?

Nope, next question, please 😉

7. Do you “ship” characters in books? If so what is your favourite ship? If not, then why not?

I’m more like a tv show couple shipper, but I have one ship. Sienna and Hawke from the Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh. I knew right from the first book that those two would end up together and I hated/loved that we had to wait 10 books for them to finally get a HEA. I loved all those little snippets of them before their actual book. Just talking about them makes me want to re-read Kiss Of Snow for the hundredth time.

8. Who is one author you’ve always wanted to meet? Why?

Jennifer L. Armentrout. Why? Because she’s Jennifer L. Armentrout, duh! And I love every books by her (Wicked does not count).

9. Do you have any weird bookish quirks?

I’m not aware of having weird bookish quirks… *thinks hard about it*

Probably that I always lend books from my library and then I don’t even read some of them. Does that count?

10. What do you like most about blogging?

The community. Everyone is just so nice and helpful.

Rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.
2. Answer the ten questions given by the nominator.
3. Nominate and link ten bloggers (with less than 200 followers)
4.  Notify all the bloggers you’ve nominated
5. Create ten new questions for your nominees.

Since I already did this one before, I won’t tag anyone, but if you would like to do it anyway, you can either answer Jo’s questions or answer the questions I created the last time I got this. Here is my first post.

The Friday 56 #1

Kyle found a lawyer for me. He assured me that she was expensive, a pain in the neck, and the best criminal defensive attorney this side of Seattle. She wasn’t happy to be defending a fae, but, Kyle told me, that wouldn’t affect her performance, only her price.

(Bomb Squad #3)
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Date of Publication: May 19th 2015 by InterMix
Source: Bought (Kindle, 275 pages)

                  goodreads-badge-add-plus-71eae69ca0307d077df66a58ec068898

Synopsis:

Welcome to Destiny Falls, New York, home of Bomb Squad—an ice hockey team full of rugged military heroes. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has the team captain packing his bags for greener pastures, but saying good-bye to the woman who’d captured his heart is easier said than done…

After being wounded in combat, Brandon Theroux lives every day like it’s his last. He never could have imagined that the sleek mechanics of his prosthetic leg would open so many doors, including minor celebrity status as a fitness model and a well-earned reputation as a rakish playboy. The only door it hasn’t opened is the one to Harper Johnson’s bedroom.

Harper has too much self-respect to join the ranks of Brandon’s “carpe diem” conquests, but when she needs someone to keep the peace in the tavern she owns, Brandon offers his help—as long as she agrees to a very tempting trade. It isn’t long before the two realize that a deal struck between friends who can’t keep their hands off each other has the potential to be a whole lot hotter than either of them is prepared to handle…

TT #41 / FPTI #29

BannerI decided to combine the Teaser Tuesday, hosted by MizB from A Daily Rhythm, with the First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Bibliophile By the Sea.


Today I decided to feature The Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent.

Opening:

There’s never a good time of day to cross town with a bag full of stolen goods, but of all the possibilities, five a.m. was the hour best suited to that particular sin.

Five a.m. and I were well acquainted.

Teaser from 13%:

It’s considered an honor for the elderly to give up their lives and their souls at the moment of a child’s birth so the next generation can live. It’s also considered an obligation.

I know I’m super late today. Anyway, that was my teaser. Did you like it? Would you read this book? What are you reading this week? Comment down below.
