As most of you know, Tarryn Fisher is one of my favorite authors, and I’ve been anxiously waiting for her to release this book! Get your copy now!


Bad Mommy by Tarryn Fisher

When Fig Coxbury buys a house on West Barrett Street, it’s not because she likes the neighborhood, or even because she likes the house. It’s because everything she desires is next door: The husband, the child, and the life that belongs to someone else.

Release Blitz: Rookie Move by Sarina Bowen


Rookie Move (Brooklyn Bruisers #1) by Sarina Bowen

Release date: September 6, 2016

About the book

The first novel in a sexy new series featuring the hockey players of the Brooklyn Bruisers and the women who win their hearts—from the USA Today bestselling author of the Ivy Years series.

In high school they were the perfect couple—until the day Georgia left Leo in the cold…

Hockey player Leo Trevi has spent the last six years trying to do two things: get over the girl who broke his heart, and succeed in the NHL. But on the first day he’s called up to the newly franchised Brooklyn Bruisers, Leo gets checked on both sides, first by the team’s coach—who has a long simmering grudge, and then by the Bruisers’ sexy, icy publicist—his former girlfriend Georgia Worthington.

Saying goodbye to Leo was one of the hardest things Georgia ever had to do—and saying hello again isn’t much easier. Georgia is determined to keep their relationship strictly professional, but when a press conference microphone catches Leo declaring his feelings for her, things get really personal, really fast….

My Thoughts

Sarina Bowen has quickly become an auto-buy author for me. After reading and loving the first two books in her True North Series, I was really excited to read this book, which is the first in a new series. Her books seem to always have the perfect mix of angst, romance, and humor that keeps me coming back for more. Although I am not a fan of the shirtless dude on book covers, this book was absolutely worth reading. Please look past the pecks, if that’s not your thing, and give Sarina’s books a chance – you won’t be disappointed!


“Come right this way,” Georgia heard her coworker and roommate Becca say, the clomp of her Dr. Martens echoing through the grand old passageway. “Nate is excited to meet you.” Becca was the owner’s assistant, and Georgia lingered half a second to wave her down and offer her a donut, too.

But Becca didn’t happen to look in Georgia’s direction as she led a tall man down the corridor. Something about his gait snagged Georgia’s subconscious. So she took a second look.

And that’s when her heart took off like a manic bunny rabbit. Because she knew that man. She knew the chiseled shape of his masculine jaw, and the length of his coal-black eyelashes.

Oh my God.

Omigod, omigod, omigod.

“How was your flight?” Becca asked him, oblivious to the fact that Georgia was spying.

“Not too bad. I got in late last night.”

The sound of his voice fluttered right inside Georgia’s chest. It was the same smoky sweet timbre that used to whisper into her ear while they made love. She hadn’t let herself remember that sound in a long time.

Now it was giving her goosebumps. The good kind.

“Welcome to Brooklyn,” Becca said while Georgia trembled. “Are you familiar with the area?”

“Grew up about thirty miles from here,” he answered while chills broke out across her back.

Holding her breath, Georgia eased her office door further closed, until only a couple of inches remained. She could not be caught like this—freaked-out and speechless, hiding behind a door.

The movement caught Becca’s eye, though. Georgia saw her turn her head in her direction and then pick her out in the crack where the door was still open. Becca raised one eyebrow—the one with the barbell piercing in it.

All Georgia could do was close her eyes and pray that Becca wouldn’t call out a greeting.

There was a pause before Georgia heard Becca say, “Right this way, please.”

Quietly, Georgia stepped into her office and shut the door. After flipping on the light, she let her briefcase and pocketbook slide right to the floor. Only the folder that Nate had given her was still in her shaking hands. She flipped it open, her eyes searching for the new player’s name on the page.

But she didn’t even need the paperwork to confirm what her racing heart had already figured out. The newest player for the Brooklyn Bruisers was none other than Leonardo “Leo” Trevi, a six-foot-two, left-handed forward. Also known as her high school boyfriend, the boy she’d loved with all her heart until the day that she’d dumped him. And now he was here?

“Thanks, universe,” she whispered into the stillness of her office.

{Blog Tour Review & Giveaway} It Ends With Us


About the book

Sometimes it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most.

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. Combining a captivating romance with a cast of all-too-human characters, It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.

my thoughts

I honestly dreaded doing this review. Not because I didn’t like the book, because the opposite couldn’t be more true. This book was so incredible that I feel any review I give it will be inadequate. You’ve heard me praise Colleen Hoover’s books time and time again, and she’s without a doubt my favorite author. But what she gives us with her new book is a complete game changer. She has written a story so emotional and heartbreaking, yet hopeful and moving that any review from me could never do it justice.

Colleen has told her readers that this book is very personal to her, and I felt it. Raw and honest, it was one of the most eye-opening, emotional stories I’ve ever read. Her talent for writing a unique story never ceases to amaze me. But it’s also the way she makes me think and question things that makes her writing so exceptional.

It’s easy to judge and form opinions about a person’s situation when you haven’t experienced it first hand. Colleen does a fantastic job of putting the reader in the shoes of her characters, while packing an emotional punch. And while at times the situation is devastating and heart wrenching (pretty sure I held my breath the entire time I read this book), she weaves strength and courage into the story, giving the reader reason to hope.

I started going into more details about the story, but I really feel like the best way to read this book is by going in blindly, as I did. I had no idea what the book was going to be about, and after finishing it, I’m glad I didn’t. But be prepared for the emotional impact it will have on you – and keep the tissues close by! This is a book that will stay with you long after you finish the last page.

A beautiful story of bravery and hope – this book will change people’s lives.

Bottom Line

Without a doubt Colleen’s best work.
