Inhale, exhale~ By Sarah M. Ross~ COMING SOON!

Inhale Exhale, a New Adult Contemporary romance from author Sarah M. Ross, releases May 7th.

Check out the BLURB:
Jillian had a plan: celebrate the end of her first year of college with an amazing summer full of beaches, barbeques, and bonfires. When her mom insists she needs a summer job, and her boyfriend spends more time with his band than with her, Jillian’s plans go down the drain. Grant had a plan: finish his Masters, get a great job at Google, and get the hell out of Georgia. He might be giving up some of the fun of his youth, but he knows his all work and no play method would be worth it when his dreams came true. But things never go according to plan. When temptation brings them together and tragedy tears them apart, Jillian and Grant will be forced to choose: fight for their dreams, or fight for each other.

Wanna read more? Here’s an excerpt:
“Are you sure you’re not breaking it just so I can come back out here? Cause if you want to see me, you don’t have to break expensive equipment to get my attention,” Grant asked earlier that day.
It was the third time I’d had to call IT, and the third time I’d gotten to see the mischievous smile on his face as he walked toward me. “No, I promise you. I really am this dumb.” I winked playfully, allowing myself to flirt for a minute. It was harmless, right? I’d never actually act on it. “I’m pretty sure the fact you can say that sentence in several other languages suggests otherwise.” “Sono davvero questo stupido,” I repeated in Italian. Grant ran a knuckle down my arm, leaving a trail of goose bumps along the path.
“Beautiful,” he said in a whispered breath. My own breathing hitched at his words. “See? Like I said, not a dumb bone in you.” The all-too-familiar blush crept back onto my face. “You don’t know me that well.” “I’d like to change that. What are you doing tonight? A bunch of us from work are going to this beach party. I’d love it if you could come.” For a moment, I pictured myself there. Laughing and having fun around a bonfire and splashing in the ocean. Grant in his board shorts that would hang low, revealing that deep V I was sure was there. But then I snapped out of it, remembering how inappropriate my thoughts were. “I have a boyfriend. I can’t.” “It’s not a date, Jillian. Just a group of friends hanging out.” He packed up his supplies, but paused before leaving. He stared deeply into my eyes, making my palms sweat. Leaning in close, he whispered in my ear. “If I were asking you out, it wouldn’t be with a group of people. It would be only us—alone—so I wouldn’t have anything from distracting me from admiring every nook and cranny on your beautiful face, Cupcake.” I swallowed down the lump that formed in my throat. My mouth had gone dry; I was unable to form a thought, let alone words. “Here.” He reached out and gently took my hand. “I’ll do this old school since you don’t like technology.” My mouth opened, but I couldn’t respond. I stared at him as he took out a pen. He picked up my tiny hand, which shook slightly, and held it in his own. The contact was slight, but powerful. I was frozen in place as he wrote on my palm. The only movement came from my heart that pounded in my chest. Before he let go, he gently blew on the ink to help it dry, causing me to emit the faintest of moans. “In case you change your mind,” he whispered, then winked and walked away.

Cover Reveal~ Gilded Destiny by Nola Sarina

A woman’s memory returns when she falls in love with the monster who took it from her.
Calli tattoos her skin to fill the holes in her memory, thanks to an accident that left her mind damaged and empty. But a nasty encounter with a fired employee leaves her in the arms of her unlikely savior: Nycholas, a predatory, serpentine Vesper on the run from his brutal master.
Nycholas’ clandestine world holds the secrets to mankind’s origin and survival… but he only wants one thing before his time is up: a few colorful nights with Calli, the fragile, tattooed, human woman he pursued and saved.
The more Calli learns about Nycholas, the more her own darkened memories return to her. Despite her haunted past, she loses herself to passion and desire with her immortal captor.
Now, Calli must overcome the demons of her past, or allow Nycholas to kiss her memories away and spare her the trauma of loving a doomed immortal. But each choice comes with dire consequences – some that endanger not only herself, but her family as well.

GILDED DESTINY is the first of three novellas in Nola Sarina’s dark fantasy VESPER series, represented by Michelle Johnson of Inklings Literary Agency. Follow Nola on Twitter @NolaSarina and on Facebook for awesome announcements, giveaways, and upcoming info about the second Novella in the series!

Nola is a mother, wife, writer, and giggle-a-holic, living in Canada and raising a pack of kids. In her spare time she can be found geocaching, guzzling coffee, or tending to her garden. Her VESPER series is on submission by her agent to publishers, along with WILD HYACINTHE, a paranormal romance co-authored with Emily Faith.

Driven to write, Lynn Rush often sees her characters by closing her eyes watching their story unfold in her mind. Lynn Rush is a pen name that is a combination of two sources – Lynn, the first name of her mother-in-law, who passed away and Rush – since the author is a former inline speed skater and mountain biker. All of Rush’s books are dedicated to Lynn, her namesake, and a portion of the proceeds benefits cancer research and awareness.

The Unraveling of Avery Snow Book Tour/ Review on book one and Giveaway!

I know this tour is for The Unraveling of Avery Snow (Book 2 in the Past Lives Series), however I had yet to read and review The Many Lives of Avery Snow, therefore you are getting that review in it's place for now. I will be making a second post during this tour with my review of book 2! Hey, this works in an advantage to those whom have not found her first book though! Right?! Well, here we go!

Avery Snow led a boring, no thrills life. After her father left the family when she was young, Avery's mother died when she was only twelve, leaving her all alone except for her Aunt Paulina. Now, at twenty-six, Avery is very used to being lonely. She enjoys her job at Sunrise Estates, it's the one place where she doesn't feel left out. Her boss, Kerri, is her best friend and Lucy O'Shea, a resident at the home, is a good friend to her as well. The night Lucy dies in Avery's arms she delivers a haunting message to Avery. She tells her that there is a man looking for her from a past life. And he will stop at nothing to have her. Now Avery is unable sleep for more than a few hours, her dreams are keeping her awake. She is too terrified to sleep for the dreams are too vivid and too real. The only catch? She cannot remember what they are about. Until her Spirit Guide, Ianni, comes to help. Ianni shows Avery her past lives and tells her about the man who is stalking her soul. Now Avery remembers every life she has ever lived and she remembers the man she shared them with. He will not give up until she falls in love with him. The problem is Avery is in love with someone else. Ianni must help keep Avery from making the wrong choice. One her soul doesn't want. She also must keep her safe from the Dark Guides who are after Avery. Now Avery must make choices she never has before. This once lonely girl is now surrounded by Spirit Guides, psychics, Demonic Angels and two men fighting for her love. Do you believe in reincarnation and a love that can last lifetimes?

:::::::::My Review::::::::
Those of you who frequent my blog reviews know that I am an avid fan of book covers. The Many Lives of Avery Snow use to have a different cover than what it holds now. The previous cover was pretty, however this new cover is way better! Much more elegant and charming! Gorgeous! Very good move, Christy!

Avery, this poor girl! One day she's just a fairly normal girl...(what's normal anyhow) living her life as best as she can. Single, her mom passed on and her father, dead to her. She has one real friend and a job she loves. Then next thing she knows she has not one but TWO men after her heart! One she's known on a personal level (serious crush factor over this bartender hottie), and another whom she just met on the side of the road (literally) by fate whom she feels so deeply connected to that her head spins. Sleepless nights, waking up with dread and drenched in sweat(in the couple hours she does manage), seeing Angels....Oh, yeah....Angels. Good and bad. I can't even begin to fathom how Avery manages it all without losing her mind or her soul......then again......maybe she does do just that.
My only complaint on this book was I felt conversations were rushed in the story and sentences kind of feeling like they were running together, however, this was a break out novel for author Christy Sloat and I know first hand her newer books are not like that. I really did like this story line. It has a lot of future possibilities and I plan to continue on with reading book two! The ending of book one leaves you no other choice! Will she continue to hold on to her soul (she's battled once already), will she make the ultimate choice of her men (the one who's followed her through lifetimes and her internal soul knows, or the one whom she fell in love with THIS lifetime) <<-----once you read The Many Lives of Avery Snow, you will understand this more *snickers, see you need to read it* One of the characters in this novel loses their memories and I'm itching to those memories come back? Will He/She acknowledge them? Agh!!!!!!! I don't know what else to say. Angels, watchers, guides and soul mates oh my! No matter what Avery chooses, she will alter someones life in a dramatic life changing way....again.... causing The Unraveling of Avery Snow...(maybe this is the reason for the title of book 2?) We shall see!!!!!

Purchase book one HERE on Amazon!

Book 2 Review~Coming Soon

As Avery Snow settles into her life and relationships with those around her, she fights to forget her past lives. All of which she spent with Landon, who still has no recollection of who she really is. It seems better that way. Even though she still feels a draw to his soul, she chooses to ignore it.

For now everything is fine. Her boyfriend, Dallas, has opened a new restaurant. Her friends, Ianni and Kerri, are settling into their lives as well. But when news of a new Dark Guide is revealed, Avery is forced to start thinking about the life she truly leads. One that is very abnormal. One she is desperate to forget. This Dark Guide is determined to make Avery pay for the death of someone she held dear.

Now Avery’s life has gone from seemingly perfect to falling apart. What will be at stake next? Her life? Her love? And who will be there in the end to help her up off the ground? 

Even the strongest love can unravel. 

Will Avery be able to hold it all together, or will she just let go?

The Lonely by Tara Brown, Blog Tour Book Promo

The Lonely
The truth is subjective to what the lonely lets in.
Emalyn Spicer has lived with it for a long time. She thinks it goes back further than her memories do. She knows it goes back further than the OCD.
When she arrives at college, her OCD's and the lonely refuse to let her have her wish to be normal.
When she meets Sebastian and starts to fall for him, she lets herself believe it's possible to outrun the things chasing her from the past. But how to you get away from the things inside of you? How do you run from yourself?
Just as she gives up and succumbs to the lonely, the unthinkable happens. She finds herself once again trapped in the dark, once again held against her will.
This time she meets the lonely head on. In the darkest corners of her mind, she discovers there is more to her world than she ever imagined. She discovers that the lonely was there for her, protecting her from herself and her secrets.
How far would you go to find yourself?

Author Bio- 
I am not going to talk in the third person. It feels weird.
I am a Canadian author of Paranormal Romance, Post Apocalyptic and Fantasy novels. Mostly because I think I have Writers ADD, I like to call it WADD. It might be a real thing.
I write New Adult, my books have sexual content (Heck yes) and Swearing. You have been warned. Now enjoy!
I have a beagle named Buster, a husband who I force to read everything I write and two girls who want so badly to be a character in my books. And not in that order.
I am mid thirties so be prepared for the chick lit novel this year. I am calling it my Ode to my Midlife Crisis.
I have been writing since I was old enough to lie. So for some time.
Welcome to my world. Please enjoy the ride.
