Cover Reveal & Giveaway for Searching for Tomorrow

Book Description

 
What if you found the one person who completes you, and then life conspires against you?
How do you set your grief and anguish aside? How do you pick up the shattered pieces,
put those pieces back together again, and try to move on?
 
Katie and Tripp met on the
playground the first day of third grade when Tripp tried to rescue Katie from
Zack, her twin brother. A lifelong friendship that later blossomed into love
began that day.
 
Broken beyond her own
ability to repair, Katie boxes her grief up and attempts to raise her three
girls the best she can on her own. As time slowly passes, Katie relives her
times with Tripp while struggling most days to even get out of bed. She is
reminded of him at every turn.
 
Zack is Katie’s twin brother
and was Tripp’s best friend. Having lost his own love, he dedicates himself to
helping Katie put her life back together. Throw in a mother-in-law who torments
at every turn and poor Katie can’t even find a chance to breathe, much less a
desire to somehow search for tomorrow.

Bio:
 
About this author If you are reading this, I think you should know that “About me” sounds so very pretentious to me. I guess that is what I am supposed to write about, so here it goes!

Katie Mac is a simple country girl who likes to spend time with her hubba, hunka hubby, her three kids and her friends. She loves to cook and really loves to eat! During the spring and summer, you will more than likely find her outside puttering around in her garden. When the veggies start coming in, she will probably be sweating over a hot canner in the kitchen, canning all the goodies she is blessed with. Katie likes to hike and go camping, and as a Girl Scout leader, she gets to do this pretty often! On cold winter nights, you will probably find her wrapped in a warm blanket, lost in a good book, while sitting in her rocking chair on the front porch!
Katie was born and raised in North Carolina, and while she loves to travel, she can’t imagine ever leaving the mountains that she has come to call home. Not a day goes by that Katie doesn’t thank God for abundantly blessing her. He has been so good to her, and she is very grateful. She holds Jeremiah 29:11 very close to her heart and believes it with every fiber of her being. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Katie loves flip flops, chocolate, sweet tea and dirt between her toes. As far back as she can remember, she’s had a book in her hand. Reading has carried her to places she will never go. It has introduced her to people that she will never meet. When life is great and when it is rough, she’s always been able to find a book to carry her through. She finally decided to write down some of the stories in her head (yes, be scared) and heart after dawdling around and wasting years dreaming. She hopes you enjoy reading those stories as much as she loves writing them!

Guest Blogger: Review of Fever (The Breathless Trilogy, Book 2)

Cover for Fever

ebook, 354 pages

Published April 2nd 2013 by Penguin Group (USA)

Fever, Book 2 of the Breathless Trilogy by Maya Banks

Book Description

Jace, Ash, and Gabe: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They’re accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Jace, it’s a woman whose allure takes him completely by surprise…

Jace Crestwell, Ash McIntyre, and Gabe Hamilton have been best friends and successful business partners for years. They’re powerful, they’re imposing, they’re irresistibly sexy, and Jace and Ash share everything—including their women.

When they meet Bethany, Jace begins to feel things he’s never experienced before: jealousy, and a powerful obsession that threatens him, overwhelms him—and excites him beyond control.

Jace isn’t sharing Bethany—with anyone. He’s determined to be the only man in her life, and it’s jeopardizing a lifelong friendship with Ash. Bethany will be his and his alone. Even if it means turning his back on his best friend.

My Thoughts

This is the second book in Bank’s series Breathless.  The series is Bank’s answer to the Fifty Shades of Gray series that stormed the market.  This series is very BDSM and Dominant male laced and if this isn’t your cup of tea, Banks has many other excellent books that you might try instead.

I loved the first book in the series and was looking forward to this book with great anticipation. Most of the reviews for it are four and five star.  The majority of readers loved the book.  Sorry to say for me it was only a three star.

It is a Cinderella story with the heroine living on the streets with her “brother”.  The hero is the very rich, self-made man whom we met in the first book, Rush, as Jace, brother of Mia.

Jace takes Bethany from life on the streets to a life of pamper and richness.

Bethany has her head screwed on right.  I liked this heroine very much.  She is a knock out beauty, with street smarts, loyalty and good common sense.  Why she puts up with some of Jace’s antics is beyond me.  Her explanation is that it is nice to not have to continually keep a look out and to protect herself.  I get that.  But how long will that feeling continue into the future once she is standing on her own feet again?

Jace is completely taken with Bethany from the first moment he sets eyes on her at Gabe and Mia’s engagement party.  He becomes, in his words, obsessed with her.  That is an understatement.  He is Over the Top.  Jace is aware of this and tries to set Bethany up in Mia’s now empty apartment go give Bethany a bit of distance from his home and life.  J

Jace is hot.  No denying that.  His looks, walk and talk all do it for me. There are many tie-her-up scenes, whipping scenes and spanking.  There is a collar involved and very definitely ownership.  I get this.  What I don’t get is his lack of listening to her and to her needs.  A good dom does this very well.. or so I am told.  Most of the miscommunication is a result of Jace jumping to conclusions. Some are correct and he is right on target.  Some important ones however are not.

I enjoyed the book.  I skipped over some of the sex scenes and I got ticked off at Jace.  I most definitely will be reading the last book in the series.  I am putting the rating at a three because I worry about the future for these two.  If Bethany learns to handle him as she didn’t do too well in the book, it will work out.  If Jace doesn’t start listening carefully he will ruin it for them both…The book just did not leave me with a feeling of HEA .  I am even wondering about a HFN feeling.
