Camp Forget-Me-Not (Camp Boyfriend #3) by J.K. Rock with Guest POST!Camp Forget-Me-Not Genres: Contemporary, YA, Young Adult
Published by Spencer Hill Press on October 7th, 2014
Playing it safe and fitting in may have rocketed Kayla West into the In crowd at Camp Juniper Point, but it's left her lonely. The only person she's ever been herself with was her former best friend, Nick, an outsider that pushed her to join the most popular girls cabin two years ago. Too bad being a Diva meant pressure to break up with Nick. Of course, Kayla had her reasons, but Nick can never know the real one. She always thought she'd forget him one day and move on. Until he returns to camp a super-hot Olympian snowboarder. Now, every girl wants him and Nick seems determined to show her what a mistake she made. Or at least, she thought that's what he wanted. But when Nick starts sending her private notes--just like he used to--she wonders what kind of game he's playing. Nick's attention is making it tougher to stay in the background and play in safe, forcing Kayla to make a decision--stay on the sidelines and get overlooked? Or take a chance on trusting Nick and, maybe... herself.

Love Letters

By J.K. Rock

Have you ever gotten a love letter? A love text counts, even if it doesn’t quite sound the same. There’s something so heart-tugging about seeing someone trying to put romantic feelings into words. We found ourselves thinking about this as we wrote Camp Forget Me Not since the characters, Nick and Kayla exchange notes to communicate secretly at camp.

Granted the notes aren’t always romantic. Nick’s first one to Kayla simply asks “How’s your cut?” But even that is a swoony moment (whether or not Kayla admits it) because that one note revives an old tradition between the characters from the days when they were still friends. It’s not always about the words in a letter. Sometimes it’s just the way they are communicated.

Another romantic element about the note exchange? It’s secret. Sure, Kayla worries about why Nick is keeping it secret and that’s a legitimate question. Is a guy trying to hide you because he doesn’t want you to be his main girl? Obviously, that’s icky. But sometimes, a relationship is a new, fragile thing and people protect it by keeping it to themselves while they get to know each other. That can be incredibly romantic and help you learn more about a guy.

One of the nicest things about a love letter is that you can keep it and tuck it under a pillow. Or file it between the pages of a diary and dig it out years later. Doesn’t matter when you read it. You’ll be automatically transported to the first time you laid eyes on the page. Words have the power to recreate the feelings you experienced when you received them. It’s a unique magic of writing.

So… do you have any love letters of your own? If not, you could always try writing one. Another magical power of a letter, is that if you send one out, you might very well get one back!

Mistletoe & Mr. Right  Author by Lyla Payne COVER REVEALMistletoe & Mr. Right on November, 20th, 2014

Twas the night

before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring…but

lust refused to settle in for a long winter’s nap.

She might be all

nestled, snug in her bed, by why, oh why, do visions of the wrong guy dance in

her head?


Jessica, (not Jessie),

figures that nothing could be better than a trip to the Emerald Isle for

Christmas break. So she takes a flying leap and follows her boyfriend home for

the holidays, not only sure that he will finally agree they’re

destined for each other, but also that Ireland will provide the perfect

backdrop to the beginning of their happily-ever-after.


But it turns out his family–and his

gorgeous ex-girlfriend–don’t feel the same way, and even the family goat seems

to be conspiring against her well-laid plans. The only person making the trip

worthwhile is the very last one she should be thinking about, but Grady, the

local farmhand, has a way of showing up when Jessica needs him most…and



USA Today bestselling

Student Review: Deuce (Vortex #3) by Janine Caldwell

4 Stars, Student Review, YA Appeal, Young Adult 0 ★★★★

Student Review: Deuce (Vortex #3) by Janine CaldwellDeuce Genres: YA, Young Adult
on January 29th, 2014
In an instant everything changes for seventeen-year-old Cassie Moore. Together she and her time-traveling boyfriend, Trent Astor, battle to survive their next impossible challenge. As they navigate through a third parallel world in which Cassie begged Trent to create for her, the two soon discover that no world can be made perfect.

And while they fight through their new circumstances, the universe may just have its own agenda for them both.

Meanwhile, it seems Trent and his sister, Lorelai, will never be safe from the greedy world and its hunger for Trent's power. A new force threatens to destroy the anonymity Trent has fought for his entire life unless he can stop this new opposition first. But every choice has a consequence, and Trent is faced with the most difficult choice of his life.

Set in contemporary Northern California, The Vortex Series is a teen romance for those who also enjoy a bit of science fiction and fantasy. Told in two perspectives, we get an intimate view of both Cassie and Trent’s worlds. Family relationships, how they interconnect and drive our personalities, is the heart and soul of this YA time traveling novel.

I thought that this was a nice end to the series. I liked how it was written and loved that there was more time-travel incorporated into this book. I think that having Cassie being able to travel now added a very interesting spin to the story.

Her third life is definitely the best of the three, but it still had its problems; especially at the end. I didn’t really expect to see more people coming after Trent so soon after Fox’s death, but what it led to was just sad. They way Trent deals with it didn’t really surprise me, I just wish it didn’t have to happen in the first place.

I liked seeing Cassie and Trent’s relationship grow stronger throughout the book. Its funny to think back to how they were those first few moments of the series where they were just two students in the same gym class. Their relationship has matured so much and is truly unbreakable.

This was a fun, quick read and I’m happy with how the story turned out. I thought this was a great book to end the series.

The Beast of Seabourne by Rhys A. Jones Book BlitzThe Beast of Seabourne on October 28th, 2014
Oz Chambers has a wonderful secret; the obsidian pebble, gifted to him by his dead father, is an artefact of astonishing power. The sort of power that makes the year eight science project a hands-down walkover thanks to the the pebble's genius avatar, Soph. But, there are sinister forces abroad who will do just about anything to get their hands on the pebble, and when fellow pupils start being attacked, Oz finds himself in very hot water. Soon Oz and his friends, Ruff and Ellie, are caught up in a centuries old mystery involving a missing ring, lava toothpaste and a murderous monster known as the Beast of Seabourne"
Grey April light trickled through the classroom’s grimy  windows, reflecting off the surface of an inch-deep lake of dyed blue water shimmering in the base of a square Perspex tank. Just a month ago, that same tank had been the home  of a goldfish called Albert. Now, a sculpted clay mountain emerged from the fish-free water at a tapered shoreline.  Oz Chambers sat hunched forward, staring at the splay  of wire spaghetti taped to one of the tank’s sides. He  squinted and carefully screwed one last wire to a terminal of an electrical switch. Gingerly, he repositioned the tank on the scuffed wooden desk he was working at and sat back to admire his handiwork. He grinned and looked up into the expectant faces of his two best friends, Ellie Messenger and Ruff Adams. “Here goes,” Oz said, and flicked the switch.“How long should it take?” Ellie asked. Nearly thirteen, she had a honey-blonde mop that kept falling forward into her face, and piercing blue eyes that turned toward the older girl behind her. “It should take 73.6 seconds, Ellie,” the girl replied. Her voice was pleasant and devoid of any accent. “Thanks, Soph,” Ellie said.
“That a rough guess, then, is it?” Ruff asked, arching his eyebrows.“73.6281 seconds,” Soph replied in her usual even tone. Ruff rolled his eyes and shook his curly head. “Serves you right for being a sarky gonk,” Oz murmured. Even though they all knew Soph 550.7 OS 20 was just an
avatar—a human representation of the incredible artefact  known as ‘the obsidian pebble,’ which Oz carried in his  pocket—it was tough not to simply treat her as another person. Other than glowing faintly in the gloom, as if she were illuminated from within the metallic-orange tunic she
wore, Soph looked like, and talked like, any other normal sixteen-year-old girl. But to the three of them sitting in that dingy classroom, pretty, holographic, superintelligent Soph, and everything that she was, had become a part of their everyday existence.Now, more than a year after she’d exploded into their lives, Oz found it almost impossible to imagine life without her. A DNA genlock ensured that the pebble responded only to Oz and to no one else in the world. The scientific experiment warming up in the tank in front of them was just the latest in a long list of things Soph had done to completely change their lives.“What is that again?” Ruff asked, pointing to the black plastic box Oz had attached the wire to.“That is a fan for the heat exchanger, Ruff,” Soph explained.“Where did that come from then?”“From a broken laptop. We got everything from that
reclamation place on Marston Street. You should know; you were there,” Oz said, trying not to sound too exasperated at  Ruff ’s customary absent-mindedness.

Rowdy (Marked Men #5) by Jay Crownover  RELEASE DAY PLUS GIVEAWAY!Rowdy on October 21st, 2014

The New York Times and USA Today bestselling Marked Men series continues with this sizzling, sexy story of love, heartbreak, fate, and second chances.

After the only girl he ever loved told him that he would never be enough, Rowdy St. James knocked the Texas dust off his boots and set out to live up to his nickname. A good ol’ boy looking for good times and good friends, Rowdy refuses to take anything too seriously, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. Burned by love once, he isn’t going to let himself trust a woman again. But that’s before his new co-worker arrives, a ghost from the past who’s suddenly making him question every lesson he ever learned.

Salem Cruz grew up in house with too many rules and too little fun—a world of unhappiness she couldn’t wait to forget. But one nice thing from childhood has stayed with her; the memory of the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who’d been head over heels in love with her little sister.

Now, fate and an old friend have brought her and Rowdy together, and Salem is determined to show him that once upon a time he picked the wrong sister. A mission that is working perfectly—until the one person that ties them together appears, threatening to tear them apart for good.


WHEN I PUT THE key he had given me in the door to his apartment it felt like the end of a long journey. Really it was only a little over twelve hours and I had stopped to nap once along the way, but it still felt like too long since I had seen his face or been able to touch all that toned and tattooed skin. Jimbo greeted me at the door when I pushed it open. His tongue lolled out of his mouth and he jumped up and put his paws on my legs. He was going to be huge when he finally grew into his fuzzy body and I was overwhelmed at how happy I was to see him. I dropped to my knees and rubbed my face in his neck as he licked me all over my face. I was obviously missed and I had to say it was just one more reason I knew I was finally where I was supposed to be. It was late, so the apartment was dark.

 I checked the dog’s food and water, trying to be quiet in case Rowdy was already asleep. I was winding my way toward his bedroom when a haphazardly discarded sketch pad lying on the couch caught my eye in the dim light. I paused for a minute to pick it up and felt my heart stop and then start to race as I flipped through the first few pages. There were a couple of drawings that were obviously for clients, tattoos that hadn’t made it from paper to skin yet, but most of the pristine white pages were covered with images wearing my face. There was mermaid me, and naughty- sailor- girl me. There was sassy Indian girl me with long Pocahontas braids and there was sexy devil me standing next to angelic me. There were dozens of them all in different shapes and sizes, but every single image was undoubtedly modeled after my distinct look. I wasn’t sure if he had drawn them all over this last week while I had been gone or over the months we had been chasing each other in circles.

Either way it made my heart swell and the full certainty that I was it for him settle deep inside my bones. I set the pad down and tiptoed through the hall. Jimbo took one look at where I was going and huffed out a disgusted- sounding snort. The poor guy had learned early on that he wanted no part of what happened between his humans when they were together in the bedroom. The light was off and Rowdy was sprawled on his stomach across the covers. His blond hair was sticking up every- where and he hand one arm bent up under his head. The only thing that could have made the sight better would have been if he hadn’t bothered with the black boxers before crashing out.

Even with them obscuring the view, I couldn’t complain. I let out a breathless sigh and crept closer so that I could lean over and touch my lips to that anchor on the side of his neck. I felt his pulse leap and tasted the salt on his skin as he murmured sleepily and rolled over onto his back. Those infinitely blue eyes glowed at me in the dark as a grin pulled up the corner of his mouth.

Courtney is sixteen years old, and is the middle Diamond sister. She’s the responsible one—she studies hard, does well in school, is a student tutor, and works after school and on weekends to help out her family. Her main goal is to keep up her grades and do well on her SATs so she can get into Stanford, her dream school. She wants to major in English and someday get a career in publishing. She’s competitive with herself and always strives to do her best.


Courtney’s closest friends are her sisters—with all the time she spends on school and work, she doesn’t have time for anyone else. She’s never had a boyfriend and is fine with waiting to date until college. (She doesn’t need any distractions right now!) She’s not into the high school party scene, and whenever she has time in her busy schedule, her favorite thing to do is read novels. She also loves listening to Broadway music (Phantom of the Opera and Wicked are her favorites) and would love to see a live show someday.


She’s a natural early bird, and is always awake before her sisters. She could happily wear jeans, t-shirts, and flip-flops every day, and always goes natural with her makeup. Her favorite drink is chai tea. She’s quiet and reserved while first meeting someone, but she will do anything for the people she loves. She would love to travel the world to see historic sites and well-known museums, but it’s always felt more like a dream than a possible reality.
