Title- The Escape
Author- Hannah Jayne
Publisher- Sourcefire Books
When two boys walk into the woods, and one comes out covered in blood, what would you believe?
Fletcher and Adam venture into the woods for an afternoon hike, but when day turns into night and neither boy returns, their town is thrown into turmoil. Avery, the detective’s daughter, is the one to find Fletcher—dishelved, disoriented, and covered in blood. He has no memory of what happened, but Avery can’t shake the feeling that something’s off. When Adam’s body is finally found, Avery is determined to uncover the truth. But if she stands by her gut, and Fletcher, is she standing by a friend, or a murderer? The answer might cost her her life.
I can’t say too much about this book without giving away what happens. The main thing I want to say is go read this book, but I cat just say that. Anyway, this was a great quick read that leaves you say, “I did not see that coming”.
This book grabbed me from the very beginning, as soon as I started read I wanted t know what happened to Adam and Fletcher in the woods. As soon as Fletcher is found, you find yourself asking what happened and since we have his POV, you think I will find out the answers right away, but the problem is he has amnesia and cant remember anything that happened in the woods. Then there’s Avery, all she wants to do is help her dad find out who killed Adam, and once she puts her mind to it, she able to figure it out. I thought she was a great character and just wanted to help. I think she can be relatable to young readers; she goes through things that a normal teen would go through.
I would recommend this to any one who enjoys mysteries and young adult reads.

The Scheme is the second book in a series, but I was able to read it as a stand-alone. In a way I am glad that I didn’t read Marry Me For Money because I got to get to know Brian away from his pervious relationship. I absolutely adored him in this story and I know I would have loved him just as much in the other story. I will however read, Marry Me For Money, now I know whom I want Brian with. Kendy was extremely likeable as well. I love how honest and blunt she was. These two were adorable together and I was rooting for their relationship the whole time. I’m not going to lie, the end tore me up, for sometime I didn’t like Kendy too much!
If you are look for a fun light hearted romance that will keeping you laughing then I suggest you take a look at this book.

Hello! I’m Patty Blount, author of young adult and contemporary romance novels. But I also have a fulltime job in IT in addition to my writing career. IT stands for Information Technology. It used to be the computer department, but as technology advanced, so did the term. My job is to write the instruction guides people need in order to correctly use their computer systems. I’ve been doing this work for about twenty years now, so in a very real sense, I’ve watched the industry grow up.
When I was just starting out, Windows hadn’t been born yet and the internet was still reserved for government or scientific use. It was also a man’s world – still is, to a large extent – but most of these guys were Big Bang Theory characters and not exactly the stuff of romance novels.
In A Match Made at Christmas, my first contemporary romance, I thought it would be cool to make geekiness a hot and heroic character trait, so I gave my heroine my day job and made the hero an executive in the same field. Here is a passage from the story based on actual pickup lines once used on me. In this scene, hero Lucas is quite attracted to heroine Elena, but trying to play it cool. Except his friends, Al and Debbie, won’t leave him alone.
“Oh, you’re in IT, too?” Al’s grin got wide and just a little bit wicked. “Luke’s head of development at Burke & Kirk. Lucas, you have to try out some of those software developer pick-up lines on someone who gets them.”
Elena’s lips twitched and she groaned just for form. Inside, she was grateful for the change of subject. “Okay. Gimme one. Let’s see what you got.”
“Come on, Luke! Don’t be such a dick.” Al elbowed him.
“No. And don’t call me a dick.”
“Please? I want to hear these, too.” Debbie patted the table between them.
“Okay, okay. You asked for it.” Luke rubbed his hands together and gave Elena a smoldering look, dropped his voice down an octave. “I hope you’re broadband, baby, because I really want high-speed access.” He wiggled his eyebrows.
Elena rolled her eyes. “That’s terrible.”
“Yeah, man, that was awful,” Al agreed.
“I warned you.”
“Come on, do another one,” Debbie said.
Elena put out a hand. “Please don’t use the obvious puns on RAM or motherboards.”
Lucas looked at her sideways. “Please. This isn’t my first program.”
She snorted and let him continue. Luke took her hand and leaned in real close. “Baby, you overclock my processor but trust me, there’s no part of my body that’s micro or soft.” He delivered the final words with his eyes locked on hers.
Elena stared into his dark eyes and felt herself melting, weakening, and might have leaned over the table to fuse her mouth to his…
What do you think? Is this a hot geek? I will admit these lines made me giggle but, no – they did not work on me!
The sequel to A Match Made at Christmas was released on June 30th. It’s called His Touch and is about Elena’s sister, Kara, and her second chance at love. I also have a new young adult novel coming out in August called NOTHING LEFT TO BURN. It’s about a boy named Reece who joins the fire department’s junior squad to win his father’s respect. Pre-order today.
I promised Matt I’d do this-become a Junior Cadet. That I wouldn’t let you break me down. I know you hate me. Blame me for everything you lost. But that day I lost my brother and my dad. You could never be proud of me, could you? I was too “different.” So, just in case you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m saying goodbye. Maybe someday, you’ll miss me.
Reece’s words make her ache. Amanda understands wanting to belong. As a foster kid, the firehouse where she volunteers is the only place that feels like home. She wants to help Reece, but his dad is her boss. And she won’t risk her place as a Junior Cadet-it’s all that she has. But when a string of arsons suddenly point to Amanda, her whole world is about to go up in flames. And the only way to save themselves is to risk getting burned.

MY WORST PICK-UP LINE EXPERIENCE
by Sarah Castille
Once upon a time, there was a Canadian girl who lived in London. One fine summer day, she put on her riding leathers and hopped on the back of her boyfriend’s motorcycle and they took a drive through the city to a quaint pub in the East End of London. While her boyfriend tended to the motorcycle, she went into the pub to buy a couple of pints.
The pub was unlike anything the Canadian girl had ever seen. Dark and dank, with a low ceiling, crooked floors, dark wooden beams, a roaring fire in a massive stone fireplace and a worn, polished bar at least fifteen feet long. A lazy hound with gastric problems lay on a braided rug in the middle of the pub, adding a distinctive aroma to the already pungent scent of yeast and stale beer.
Several grizzled old men played cards at a table in one corner. An elderly couple dozed in front of the fire. And a group of guys sat at the bar chatting up the female bartender who sported multiple facial piercings and two full sleeves of tattoos.
The Canadian girl slid onto the last seat at the bar and asked the bartender for a pint. Almost immediately, one of the guys broke away from the group. Tall and broad, with a chiselled jaw, shaved head and a pillowy abdomen, he approached her with slow, measured steps. His piercing blue eyes slid over her leather-clad body like a soft caress, lingering over the swell of her breasts crushed beneath her tight leather jacket. He leaned into her, his voice low and husky.
“Ya’re so Peas in a Pot I could Tu’penny Post me meat on ya, Basin Of Gravy.”
Very eloquently, and in her best Canadian, she said, “Eh?’
With a sympathetic smile, he drew closer, his fetid breath a whisper in her ear. “You don’t have any Cockney in ya, luv?”
“Do you want some?”
“Sorry,” she said, inwardly cringing at the worst pick-up line ever. “I only ride Canadian.”
My latest release is Beyond the Cut, the second standalone book in the Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club series. It was inspired by my motorcycle adventures across Europe, and it’s got all the hard riding, fierce loving, outlaw bikers you could want, plus a feisty heroine, a villainous villain and two little kids who can melt an outlaw hero’s heart.
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Sarah Castille, worked and traveled abroad before trading her briefcase and stilettos for a handful of magic beans and a home near the Canadian Rockies. She writes erotic contemporary romance and romantic suspense featuring blazingly hot alpha heroes and the women who tame them.

Title- Fuzzy Mud
Author- Louis Sachar
Publisher- Delacorte Books
Release- August 4, 2015
“Be careful. Your next step may be your last.”
Fifth grader Tamaya Dhilwaddi and seventh grader Marshall Walsh have been walking to and from Woodbridge Academy together since elementary school. But their routine is disrupted when bully Chad Wilson challenges Marshall to a fight. To avoid the conflict, Marshall takes a shortcut home through the off-limits woods. Tamaya reluctantly follows. They soon get lost, and they find trouble. Bigger trouble than anyone could ever have imagined.
In the days and weeks that follow, the authorities and the U.S. Senate become involved, and what they uncover might affect the future of the world.
Fuzzy Mud is one of those books that children enjoy reading as well as adults. The added bonus is that adults will enjoy reading this book to their children!! This was an extremely short read, that didn’t leave anything out.
This book has many things that children can relate to bullies, friends, and school. Tamaya is also a character that many people will root for and may even relate to! She just wants to be friends with Marshall and doesn’t want to been seen as a baby. Those were her huge problems until she is faced with the Fuzzy Mud, then her life is changed.
I like that the book had some math along with all the science. Children reading can learn some multiplication as well as some science.
I know as an educator, I would add this book to a summer reading list!
The author of Flirting with Scandal presents her second book in a sexy contemporary romance series about three sisters in a powerful political family, the scandals that threaten to destroy them, and the passion that drives them…
The daughter of one of the Senate’s most powerful figures, Blair Reynolds was ready to become the ultimate political wife—until she caught her fiancé cheating on her wedding day. Law school is a fresh start, her shot at putting the pieces of her life back together. That’s the plan, at least. Until trouble comes in the form of her Torts professor, the man whose arrogance infuriates her in class but haunts her private fantasies.
Graydon Canter had a fortune and a place on all the hottest “Thirty under Thirty” lists, until a series of personal missteps nearly destroyed his career. A year teaching at a D.C. law school is just the break he needs to get his life back in order, as long as nothing—and no one—trips him up.
When Blair and Gray are forced to work together, their explosive attraction becomes impossible to resist. But Gray’s demons have drawn him dangerously close to the edge, and Blair has spent her life playing by the rules. Will she break them for a shot at love?
I really enjoyed reading Playing with Trouble. Lately, I haven’t been finding too many books that I enjoyed read. This story however mad me feel things haven’t felt in a while. This was also the first teacher/student romance that I have read. So, not only was it enjoyable, but it was also new.
The characters, Gray and Blair, were just as enjoyable as the plot! I completely felt their chemistry through the whole story, and I kept rooting for them. I also like how both characters grew so much. They both went on a journey and together they figured out what was to become of them.
Flirting with Scandal by Chanel Cleeton
Law school made Chanel realize she’d rather spend her days writing sexy stories than in a courtroom, and she hasn’t looked back since. An avid reader and hopeless romantic, she’s happiest curled up with a book. She has a weakness for handbags, her three pups, and her husband.
Chanel writes contemporary romances. She is published by Harlequin HQN, Penguin/InterMix, and Penguin/Berkley and is the author of the International School, Capital Confessions, and Wild Aces series.
Title- The Heartbreakers
Author- Ali Novak
Publisher- Sourcefire Books
Release- August 4th, 2015
“When I met Oliver Perry, I had no clue he was the lead singer for The Heartbreakers. And he had no idea that I was the only girl in the world who hated his music.”
Stella will do anything for her sick sister, Cara—even stand in line for an autographed Heartbreakers CD…for four hours. She’s totally winning best birthday gift this year. At least she met a cute boy with soft brown hair and gorgeous blue eyes while getting her caffeine fix. Too bad she’ll never see him again.
Except, Stella’s life has suddenly turned into a cheesy love song. Because Starbucks Boy is Oliver Perry – lead singer for the Heartbreakers. And even after she calls his music crap, Oliver still gives Stella his phone number. And whispers quotes from her favorite Disney movie in her ear. OMG, what is her life?
But how can Stella even think about being with Oliver — dating and laughing and pulling pranks with the band — when her sister could be dying of cancer?
I loved The Heartbreakers!!! I have recently really enjoyed reading many books about boy bands, which is something I have avoided in the past! I fell in love with books like this one after read The Backstage Pass Series, and now with The Heartbreakers.
Now let me talk about this book. This was the perfect summer read, it was quick with minimal drama (but the drama did break my heart.). The characters were all so likable, not just the hero and the heroine but all the supporting characters too. I love how every guy in the band was different and they all had their own big personalities. All the sense including the band members had me laughing, they were all so great. Owen was of course my favorite and I kind of wish the book was written in his POV as well. Then there was Stella; she had such a huge and amazing heart! The relationship she had with her family was great, it wasn’t perfect but together they needed to get through Cara’s sickness.
This story wasn’t just about a boy and a girl falling in love, but for me it was about family. Not only the family you are related to but also the family of friends you can choose to have.
This story had me laughing and then it had me tearing up, putting these two elements together the perfect book is produced in my eyes! I can’t wait to read more about these heartbreakers and maybe even get a book about Drew and Cara.
Title- Apple and Rain
Author- Sarah Crossan
Publisher- Bloomsbury Publishing
When Apple’s mother returns after eleven years away, Apple feels whole again. But just like the stormy Christmas Eve when she left, her mother’s homecoming is bittersweet. It’s only when Apple meets someone more lost than she is that she begins to see things as they really are.
A story about sad endings.
A story about happy beginnings.
A story to make you realise who is special.
This was such an amazingly heart-warming story about family and finding a place where you belong. There was so much more to then book then life in high school. Apple went through so much, which in the end made her a stronger person.
When I began reading this story, there were so many times where I could relate to Apple, that I immediately adored her. There are times when everyone has a feeling of not being loved and that’s how Apple felt. I thought Apple’s character was developed so well and I LOVE seeing that in books! Del and Rain were so likable too. I was not a fan of Apple so called friend Pillar, she was just so awful!!
Recently, I have been reading some books with outstanding characters that are teachers! Being a teacher I love seeing that! I also like that he was a strong English teacher, sneaking in life lessons.
I think many young readers will enjoy this book as much as I did!!
