Blog Tour: Let's Get Physical by Cassie Cross

Corinna McKnight is a chronically single girl in need of toned abs and a hot date for a wedding that her highly successful, deliriously happy lifelong frenemy will be attending. The wedding is only six weeks away and she doesn’t have much time to make it look like she has her life together. Luckily, her best friend’s boyfriend owns the hottest gym in town and sets her up with Noah, the best personal trainer he has on staff.

Noah Cutter is at a pretty good place in his life. He has a job and he loves working for his best friend, Hunter. Noah is in high demand, mostly for his talent, but sometimes for his body and Hunter has one very firm rule: no fooling around with the clients.

It’s an easy rule to follow until he meets Corinna, who makes him want more out of life and leaves him straddling the line between breaking a promise and betraying his heart. 

Let’s Get Physical is the standalone second book in the Love Is…series!

But it now on Amazon:

This was a short and sweet story to get through. You have Corinna, happy with everything in life aside from her love life, making it a goal to get super fit and find a super hot date to attend a wedding in a few weeks. She gets set up with a personal trainer to reach her goal and, to her surprise, he happens to be her high school crush--Noah, someone she hasn't thought of in just as many years. The two of them start spending time together and find that they still have feelings for each other. But there's a catch--Noah's boss has one rule in place--no dating clients! Will they figure out a way to be together or is their second chance doomed from the get go? This was an easy read, it's short and sweet but don't expect to get too invested in any of the characters as they don't get overly developed.

The Two-Date Rule (Smokejumpers #1) by Tawna Fenske

Willa Frank has one simple rule: never go on a date with anyone more than twice. Now that her business is providing the stability she’s always needed, she can’t afford distractions. Her two-date rule will protect her just fine…until she meets smokejumper Grady Billman.

After one date—one amazing, unforgettable date—Grady isn’t ready to call it quits, despite his own no-attachments policy, and he’s found a sneaky way around both their rules.

Throwing gutter balls with pitchers of beer? Not a real date. Everyone knows bowling doesn’t count.

Watching a band play at a local show? They just happen to have the same great taste in music. Definitely not a date.

Hiking? Nope. How can exercise be considered a date?

With every "non-date" Grady suggests, his reasoning gets more ridiculous, and Willa must admit she’s having fun playing along. But when their time together costs Willa two critical clients, it's clear she needs to focus on the only thing that matters—her future. And really, he should do the same.

But what is she supposed to do with a future that looks gray without Grady in it? 

Cute story, I always like a cute story about love coming about when it's least convenient for you. That is just the case with Willa and Grady. Willa is avoiding relationships at all costs--so much so, that she's instituted a two-date policy whereby she only ever goes on two dates with possible suitors. Her policy has kept things neat and clean, no attachments, no heartbreak and no foul. But then enters Grady. Unexpectedly, the attraction and chemistry to that mistake stripper turns into more than she could have ever thought. Willa and Grady find every excuse to spend time together...all the "non-dates" that one can think of. As their attraction grows, so do the stakes at hand for Willa and everything she's worked so hard for. Easy to get through, loved the Smokejumper aspect as it reminded me of the Legacy series by Rebecca Yarros. There's something about men in uniform...

Blog Tour: Great & Precious Things by Rebecca Yarros

How do you define yourself when others have already decided who you are?

Six years ago, when Camden Daniels came back from war without his younger brother, no one in the small town of Alba, Colorado, would forgive him—especially his father. He left, swearing never to return.

But a desperate message from his father brings it all back. The betrayal. The pain. And the need to go home again. But home is where the one person he still loves is waiting. Willow. The one woman he can never have. Because there are secrets buried in Alba that are best left in the dark.

If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she’s always loved him, and always will…

Great and Precious Things is a heart-wrenching story about family, betrayal, and ultimately how far we're willing to go on behalf of those who need us most.

Great & Precious Things is available for purchase:

If this book wasn't gut wrenching, I don't know what is. Rebecca Yarros, once again, brings you to tears multiple times during this story. Camden Daniels returned from war only to leave his hometown never to return again. Six years later, he reappears in town with...the intentions to stay? The love of his life (and the one that he's vowed to stay away from) is still there and he's as drawn to her now as the day he left. But things are not as easy as picking up where he left off. Camden is returning to a town that hates him for having brought his little brother home in a casket so many years ago. His troubled past and badboy reputation precedes him. So what can he do to convince them all that he's not who they think he is? Willow has always secretly pined for Camden only to have pledged herself to the "right" Daniels brother. When Camden returns to town and brings back all the feelings she's been suppressing, we're in for one emotional ride. The chemistry is very much so alive between the two of them but can anything be when they're both fighting what feels so right to do what they think is the right thing to do? As always, Rebecca's writing is enthralling and the way she tells Camden and Willow's story is just captivating and heart wrenching. 

About the Author

I’m a hopeless romantic and adore all things chocolate, coffee and paleo. No, seriously, I need to have a caffeine IV put in. I’ve adored reading all my life, and writing naturally evolved from my love of late nights and promises of one more page.

I’m also a military wife of sixteen years. During my husband’s deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I was devouring a book a day, and during his third deployment, I finally wrote my own. With a somewhat ironic timing, I received my book deal for Full Measures during his fourth deployment, and published a month after he returned home. We’re currently preparing for his fifth deployment, so check out the blog for the latest!

On the homefront, we have six kids. Yes, you read that right—six. If I’m not writing or playing guitar, I’m usually tying hockey skates for our four boys, or sneaking in John Hughes marathons with my two daughters. We fostered and adopted our youngest daughter from the foster system and we’re passionate about helping others do the same through our non-profit, One October! We’re always busy navigating the winding road of our daughter’s recent autism diagnosis, getting our boys to hockey, prepping for a deployment, and generally trying to stay sane. We’re die-hard Mets fans, but our hearts call Colorado home.

If you’ve read all of that, haven’t fallen asleep, and still want to know more about me, check out my blog:

  Cover Reveal_ Charmed Souls-2 Charmed Souls FOR WEB 

They say blood is thicker than water, but I was never proud of mine. A female born into the Kamlock bloodline was destined to possess three things they couldn’t change—a crazy as hell mother, an unfair amount of beauty, and a Charmed soul that was as black as night.
All a Kamlock woman ever desired in life was to use her beauty to destroy wealthy men and take their riches. A century had passed since a generation of Kamlock sisters had been anything other than gold diggers.
All I ever wanted was to be free of them. I knew I couldn’t change my cursed birth, but I could change its legacy. I had a job, I had friends, and I was slowly gaining my independence.
Until Rathe Scott crashed into my life and tore it apart.
He made me feel what I had spent my entire life never wanting to feel. He brought out a darkness I’d not known was inside me. And just when I thought I was becoming everything I had sworn I would never become…
He was gone.

“You’re more than you realize. I’ve tried to tell you that already. I, uh, I don’t think you are who you think you are,” he stopped abruptly then just gave a shake of his head. “You don’t want to hear what I think. Just do me a favor and don’t underestimate your power. You may not agree, but my mother,” he said then pointed at me “and your mother… they are scared of you. There is something we don’t know. But I read people well, and those two are careful not to push you too hard. When you were younger they weren’t as careful around you but the closer you get to twenty-one, things are changing. There is a power shift and you’re so used to the way things have been all your life, you don’t see it.”
This wasn’t the first time Duely had said something like this to me, but it was the first time he had mentioned things shifting the older I got. I still thought he was being dramatic and reading things into situations that weren’t there. I was done arguing that my mother, who had made my life hell from the moment my father died, was scared of me. She hated me. That was clear. She hated that I wouldn’t give her the power of three. She hated that I was stubborn and like my father. She possibly hated that I was half normal. But Persephone Kamlock was by no means scared of me. I let out a hard laugh. “It’s past time you let that theory go,” I told him.
He lowered his eyebrows in a frown. The frustrated kind, not the angry kind. He wanted me to buy into this idea of me being powerful. I had a mortal as a father. That was impossible to consider.
“Explain then why you feel a dark cast and I feel nothing? How do you know it’s dark? What is it you feel?” He was challenging me now. I didn’t have answers, of course. I was still trying to wrap my head around the disappearing act the caster had done.
“You would have felt it too if you’d seen the man,” I said in way of explanation.
“But I didn’t see him. No one did… but you,” he shot back.
I opened my mouth to remind him that I’d been walking around by myself to get peace. There was no way the man knew he’d see me out there alone. He hadn’t been waiting on me. That was ridiculous. This was getting us nowhere. Duely was done with the evening and wanted to get stoned. He wasn’t going to do much to help me. I just shook my head and turned to walk back to the house. “Maybe I’m crazy!” I called out to him, as I walked, trying to break the tension that had unintentionally built.
“Or maybe you’re darker than you want to accept,” was his response.
