Blog Tour: DARK TOUCH by Aimee L. Salter

Blog Tour: DARK TOUCH by Aimee L. Salter

Posted February 26, 2016 by jenniferstrand in blog tour, book review / 1 Comment

Welcome to our stop on the DARK TOUCH blog tour! This one is a special one for me because my BBF wrote it.  I fell in love with Aimee’s writing with her debut novel and basically kept emailing her until she promised to be my friend. (This is a nasty habit I have with authors I love, but it WORKS.)  Anyway, I’m so proud to be part of this tour today!     Excerpt 1 – Opening Pages / What’s at stake I think it’s because the first time Chris saw me, I wasn’t me. He saw someone who didn’t exist. And by the time he figured that out, he didn’t care anymore. He should have cared. He cares […]

Welcome to our stop on the GLASS SWORD blog tour! I’m barely coming down off my high from being asked to be a part of this amazing tour.  GLASS SWORD was one of my most highly anticipated books of the year and I am SO EXCITED to share my review with you today.       I know I’m not the only one that feels nervous picking up the sequel to a book that you loved.  Doesn’t matter who wrote it or what the series is, I cross my fingers and make a silent plea that the magic that moved me in the first book continues in the second book.  You guys know how serious second book syndrome is, […]

Blog Tour: WITH EVERY BREATH by Lia Riley

Posted December 28, 2015 by jenniferstrand in blog tour, book review, interview / 0 Comments

Welcome to our stop on the WITH EVERY BREATH blog tour! Not only am I sharing my review with today, but you’re also getting an excerpt from this sweet story AND a list of Lia Riley’s Top 5 Heroines.  Whew! That’s a lot of stuff.  So sit back, read through all the goodness, and then enter to win your very own copy of WITH EVERY BREATH!       Her eyes widen. I can’t hold her gaze and say what I must. “Body‑to‑body contact.” The world outside rips apart, but in the tent, a heavy silence reigns. She shifts to a half sit. “Oh, no, it’s OK. Look, I’ll be better in a few minutes.” “You said […]

Book Review: INTO MY ARMS by Lia Riley

Book Review: INTO MY ARMS by Lia Riley

I’m not sure if I was more excited to read this book to learn more about Z or his million dollar fish.  Turns out Z is waaay more interesting than the fish. Thank goodness! We get to meet Z earlier in the Off the Map series and I gotta tell you,  I kinda pictured him as a cartoon character. He’s this mysterious guy that works at the tippity top of the tallest building in Whoville, er, Santa Cruz-ish area and we’ve seen him just enough to have this vague understanding of his phobia of touch.  I wasn’t sure if he was the equivalent of the Road Runner or Wile E. Coyote, but I thought he might have […]

Blog Tour: BREAKING TACKLES by Erin Brown

Blog Tour: BREAKING TACKLES by Erin Brown

Posted September 23, 2015 by jenniferstrand in blog tour, book review / 0 Comments

Welcome to our stop on the BREAKING TACKLES blog tour! My love for Erin Brown is well documented and I’m so excited to share my long rambling review of her newest story in the Taking Flight series. I’m not really sure how to review this book, you guys. Truth be told, it deserves more than my normal gushing review of how HOTT the hero was and how I’m crushing on the heroine. (Actually, now that I mention it. Adam is HOTT and I freaking adore Courtney, so…) No, this one needs me to put on my serious storytelling hat and share a story with you to properly convey how important this book is. This book starts of light and […]

Book Review: THE REMEDY by Suzanne Young

Book Review: THE REMEDY by Suzanne Young

Posted July 24, 2015 by jenniferstrand in book review / 0 Comments

Sooo, I didn’t realize that there is a follow up to Quinlan’s story coming in the form of THE EPIDEMIC set to release in April 2016 until I got to the last page of this book. What the crap, yo! I gots to know the rest of the story. STAT.  Young doesn’t leave us on a cliffhanger, per se, but let’s just say you’ll be quite anxious to for the next book.  Think about how  THE PROGRAM ended. It’s kinda like that, only different circumstances. Obviously. I was SO AFRAID that this book was going to turn into the most bizarre love triangle in the history of love triangles. Matter of fact, it got so close to going too […]

Book Review: THE HISTORY OF US by Nyrae Dawn

Book Review: THE HISTORY OF US by Nyrae Dawn

Posted July 21, 2015 by jenniferstrand in book review / 0 Comments

Before I get to my review of this gem of a book, I need to give you a little background information.  For the past six-ish years, my reading has consisted almost exclusively of YA books of many genres. Contemporary, dytopian, paranormal, fantasy, etc.  Didn’t really matter to me. If it was YA and recommend by a trusted friend, it was mine. I’ve expanded into the world adult romance this year and have fallen in love with falling in love.  My favorite genre of romance might surprise you:  I LOVE M/M romance. The stories pull at my heart like no other genre ever has. So why am I telling you all of this right this very minute?  Well, THE HISTORY […]

Book Review: ALIVE by Chandler Baker

Book Review: ALIVE by Chandler Baker

Posted July 10, 2015 by jenniferstrand in book review / 0 Comments

  Every once and a while, a book that is like no other book you’ve ever read falls into your lap. When that happens, you need to take that book and caress it to the point where a person peeping into your living room window may find your actions a little inappropriate. That’s exactly what I did with ALIVE.  I dare you to not do the same with this debut book by Chandler Baker. This is a tough book to categorize.  It’s sometimes sweet, sometimes thrilling, sometimes suspenseful and always creepy.  Heck, some parts are downright scary! (Do you know how hard it is to read with your hands over your eyes? It’s hard.)  Our girl Stella goes through […]

It won’t be long now and GET DIRTY, the finale in the Don’t Get Mad duology will be on shelves all over the world! I hope you’re excited because you should be! McNeil knows how to tell a story, yo! This is a MONSTEROUS tour so be sure to check out the other stops on this tour sponsored by the uh-mazing Me, My Shelf and I     I know that it’s supposed to be the actual mystery of a mystery book that keeps a reader reading into the wee hours of the night, but I’m walking away from GET DIRTY with a lasting impression of the humor. Don’t misunderstand this, though. The mystery is muy mysterious and I, […]
