Welcome to our stop on the Summer i fell tour!

SummerIFell.jpgThe Summer I Fell by Sonya Loveday 
(The Six #1) 
Publication date: July 27th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult


Synopsis:


“So you wanna be part of the Six, huh? You wish…”
~Jared, Ace, Mark, Josh, Aiden & Eli


Riley Clifton can’t remember a time when she wasn’t a part of the Six, a group of rowdy boys who would do just about anything for her. Growing up alongside of six guys is never easy. Especially in high school. Falling in love with one of the Six? Even harder when Ace has a hold of her heart, and he doesn’t even know it.
Jake (Ace) Aceton has loved Riley for a long time, but has kept the secret oath of the Six. Riley was off limits. At least until after graduation. When he overhears Riley admitting to her best friend, Paige how she feels about him, Ace doesn’t let his chance slip by. Riley, in his mind, has always been his.
When her college plan falls through, and her future is left to the hands of fate, Riley finds herself scrambling to keep up with all the changes. But that’s not the hardest part. The hardest part is saying good-bye, especially to Ace.

Heartache, hard lessons, and a love deeper than her Alabama roots will threaten to crumble Riley’s world as she waits for Ace’s return.
Will Riley and Ace’s love be strong enough to hold them together when life tries to tear them apart?


Today we welcome Sonya for an interview!
Did you always know you wanted to be a writer or did you want to be something else? 
I didn’t. I guess you could say I’ve taken steps to get where I am. Being a creative person, I’ve always been drawn to using the arts to channel that part of myself. At first, when I was younger, it was poetry and drawing. Over the years, it grew. And one day an idea came to me. I wrote an entire book based off seeing a hammered silver bracelet. That story may never see the light of day, but I knew in that moment, I could do it. So I did. 
How long does it take you to write a book from start to finish?
It depends on the story. Casted and Spelled took me a little longer to write since they are paranormal stories and it included a little more world building. It took me about six months to complete Casted, but I was also working full time when I started it. I also stopped mid-point and walked away from it for a few months. Spelled took about four months to complete. The Six Series went way faster, both books were written in about two months. So yeah, it really just depends on what I’m writing and what’s going on in my life. 
How do you come up with themes for your stories?
Good question! My ideas come from complete randomness. The Casted Series came to me as I was writing my very first novel, the one I mentioned above. I kept seeing a particular scene, and I built the book around that scene. The Six Series came to me as a ‘blip’, a scene that popped into my head one night, so I grabbed my laptop, kicking off the story from that point.
Do you have a schedule of when you write? 
Yes and no. I’m a stay at home mom so my days are pretty much free for me to write. As long as I get up and go right to my story, I’m good. But there are days when that’s not possible.  
How are you able to balance other aspects of your life with your writing?
I have my days where it feels like I can’t get a single thing done. And then there are days where I get it all done with time to spare. I guess it just finds a way to work itself out.
What elements do you think make a great story line? 
Writing that puts you into the story and makes you see it as you read it. As far as elements, I’d say strong characters, a little humor, a story that keeps you reading to find out what’s going to happen next. That’s just a few things off the top of my head, but there’s so much that can be done to create an awesome book.
What was the hardest thing about writing a book?
For my first one was making paranormal and everyday life blend. And writing the action scenes totally kicked my arse the first go ‘round. Luckily I have an awesome best friend who read over the scenes and helped me get the scenes out of my head and into words.
How many books have you written so far? Do you have a favorite? 
I’ve written four total published books. I also have others that are sitting in my computer. Most of those are partially written and I’ll get back to them eventually. Oddly, I don’t have a favorite. They’re equally important to me because they are a piece of me.
Do you have a favorite character?
I’d have to say, as of right now, Aiden and Airen are my favorites. But that’s only because they’re the ones who’ve taken over my head.
Where do you write?
I write at home. I don’t do well with writing anywhere else. I too easily distracted.
When deciding on how to publish, what directed you to the route you took?
I decided to go Indie because it gives me total control and say over my publishing dates, my cover artist, and my editor.
Have you gotten feedback from family about your book(s)? What do they think?
I have the most amazing family. I really do! Not only are they supportive, they’re also my support system. I blush every time someone turns to either one of my parents, after learning I’m an author, and say… “So what do you think about your daughter writing?” and they answer, “Proud. I’s so proud of her.” It gives me the warm and squishies.
What kinds of things do you like to do outside of writing?
I read. I love when I have time to read! I’ve also just started dipping my toes into my ancestry. I’m digging back as far as I can go to find my Scottish and Irish heritage, and also working on my husbands side. Eventually my kids will know where we originated from instead of me telling them we’re Heinz 57. 
What kinds of advice would you give to someone who wants to start writing? 
You’ll never know if you can do if you don’t try. Write your first draft, review it, and then get a friend to read it. Take advice, but don’t allow anyone to change your story. It’s your story for a reason. Hire an editor! Don’t push publish until you have someone edit your work. It could be an amazing story, but if it’s full of grammatical mistakes it could hurt you. And lastly, remember this: everyone doubts their work, you will too. The key to getting past that is shoving the doubt aside and take that last leap of faith.
What is your favorite book? favorite author? Do you have an author that inspired/inspires you to write? 
I absolutely love the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. As far as an author that inspires me? There’s lots of authors that I’ve read that are amazing, but I have to keep that locked away when I write, because I don’t want my writing tone to reflect back to the way they write. I try to be 100% me. 
Do you have any go to people when writing a book that help you with your story lines as well as editing, beta reading and such? 
YEP! Candace Knoebel is my go to if I run into any plot issues or stumbling points. The best part is, she just listens and I’m able to work out the problem on my own. Sometimes you need that person to just listen to you ramble and then *bam* it comes to you. Candace also is the very first set of eyes to any of my stories. I fix the mistakes she catches and then it’s ready for editing. Once edited, my amazing Beta’s are ready to read it. The very last set of eyes to read my books is Rebecca Gaskill and she never disappoints. I’d be lost without each of these amazing people!
Are you working on anything now? 

I’m working on the third book of The Six Series, If Ever I Fall, and will be wrapping up the first draft soon! Keep any eye out on my website and Facebook page for the upcoming release date.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. It was so great having you with us!
Sonya.jpgSonya Loveday, first and foremost is a reader, an avid one. It is of that love that brought her to
purchasing her first laptop in 2009, and publishing her first novel, Casted, in 2013.
In early 2014, Sonya expanded Casted and then went on to publish Spelled, the sequel to Casted, in March, wrapping up the series, and her stint with Paranormal Romance. For now.
Not long after the completion to the Casted Series, Sonya tried her hand at New Adult/Coming of Age, a sub-genre of Contemporary Romance. Thusly, the Six were born with The Summer I Fell, which released at the end of July 2014. The demand from readers was instantaniously, which brought about End Note, the second book of the series in December 2014.

To date, Sonya lives in Central Florida with her husband, and two kids, and is currently working on her fifth book set to release later this spring 2015.

ARC Review: A Wicked Thing (A Wicked Thing #1) by Rhiannon Thomas @harperteen

22535481-1.jpgRhiannon Thomas's dazzling debut novel is a spellbinding reimagining of Sleeping Beauty and what happens after happily ever after.

One hundred years after falling asleep, Princess Aurora wakes up to the kiss of a handsome prince and a broken kingdom that has been dreaming of her return. All the books say that she should be living happily ever after. But as Aurora understands all too well, the truth is nothing like the fairy tale.

Her family is long dead. Her "true love" is a kind stranger. And her whole life has been planned out by political foes while she slept. 

As Aurora struggles to make sense of her new world, she begins to fear that the curse has left its mark on her, a fiery and dangerous thing that might be as wicked as the witch who once ensnared her. With her wedding day drawing near, Aurora must make the ultimate decision on how to save her kingdom: marry the prince or run.

Rhiannon Thomas weaves together vivid scenes of action, romance, and gorgeous gowns to reveal a richly imagined world … and Sleeping Beauty as she’s never been seen before.

Brooke's Review:
I want to thank Harper Teen for providing me with a  copy of this book to read and give an honest review. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my opinion or review.

I love anything to do with fairy tales. So I was excited to read what happened after the happily ever after. Except this book didn't quite get to that point. The plot revolves around what happens after Sleeping Beauty awakes from her long sleep but before she has her happily ever after. I loved the concept of it and how imaginative the author was about the story. It's definitely the continuation of what happens after the fairy tale ends.

I'm going to be honest and say I'm not truly sure how I feel about this book.

Aurora's character was intriguing at first. I liked how she has some trouble adjusting to her surroundings. But I found that soon after she was suddenly so much more comfortable than I thought she could be. I felt like the change was a bit quick for me. I did love how she wanted to learn about her new world. And she wasn't quite the fighter I needed her to be. Rather she sneaks around so she can get a glimpse of the world outside the castle and what it has been come in the last 100 years since she's been asleep. I needed more fear from her, more of her being timid and shy and not really feeling like she fit in. I didn't get that.

Then there's Rodric, the price who has kissed Aurora and brought her out of her sleep. I will be honest and say I really don't know Rodric. I mean, I know he's the prince and he is going to marry Aurora and suddenly all will be right in the world, but I don't really know HIM. Who he is, what he likes, if he agrees with it all. He was not well fleshed out.

And of course the story would not be complete with another guy, Tristan, to create a sort of love triangle. It was pretty obvious from the start that this story would go there. Except it really doesn't, not in the traditional sense. But I will say that the romance didn't really take a huge part in this book, so it wasn't horrible to have this sort of love triangle exist.

But, wait, there's one more. Enter Finnegan. Another prince who, despite not being the one to woke Aurora with his kiss, is vying for her attention and potential love. I liked Finnegan a lot. He is straight forward and no bones. He tells Aurora how it is. But, we don't know much about Finnegan. He is kind of a mystery to us, which I think might have been the whole point of having him in the story. So we sort of have a love quadrangle (incidentally this is the second one I've read this year). I will say that Finnegan is my favorite character in this book.

I liked the writing in this book. It was fairly well paced for the most part, although there were a few places where I wished the story would have moved a bit faster And there were times when I really wanted to know more about the world they were living in. Certainly it was supposed to be a fantasy types world modeled after what we know of Sleeping Beauty, but I had a hard time picturing it in my mind. I also would have liked a bit more action in the book. I don't know why but I kind of expected sword fights and horses and such.

Overall I didn't love or hate this book, I just kind of fell somewhere in the middle with it. It wasn't memorable for me. I would read the second one. Overall I think it has to be readers choice on this one. If you are a lover of fairy tale "retellings" then this one is probably for you.

BOUNCE: A BOOMERANG NOVEL
By Noelle August
Coming to you August 25th, 2015!

William Morrow Trade Paperback; August 25, 2015; $13.99; ISBN: 9780062331106

Following in the bestselling tradition of Molly McAdams and J. Lynn, this final chapter in the fun and steamy New Adult trilogy by Noelle August (authors Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger) features two aspiring musicians who must choose between their careers…and their sizzling attraction for each other.


Playing the occasional club gig just isn’t cutting it for twenty-two-year-old cellist Skyler Canby, who’s trying to support herself and her mother back home in Kentucky. Persuaded by her best friend Beth to accompany her on an audition for the first feature film launched by Blackwood Entertainment, she figures why not? Beth’s a shoe-in for the lead, but maybe Skyler’s newly dyed pink hair will help her stand out enough to score a small speaking part.

Never in her wildest dreams does Skyler imagine she’ll land the lead role or that she’ll have her shoes knocked off her feet by the kiss her audition partner, Grey Blackwood, plants on her—a kiss that feels very real and not at all “acted. ”

After throwing a party that causes thousands of dollars of damage to his older brother’s home, reckless musician Grey Blackwood gets roped into working off his debt on the set of his CEO brother’s newest project. Grey spends his days fetching coffee and doing odd jobs around the studio, but he lives for nights when he performs with his band. He knows if he can stay focused, success as a singer is just around the corner. But that’s tough with a distracting pink-haired girl occupying his every waking thought.

Skyler and Grey have every reason to resist each other. But, like a song neither of them can get out of their minds, they have no choice but to go where the music takes them.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Question: What do you get when friends pen a story with heart, plenty of laughs, and toe-curling kissing scenes? Answer: Noelle August, the pseudonym for renowned editor and award-winning writer Lorin Oberweger and New York Times bestselling YA author Veronica Rossi, the masterminds behind the Boomerang series.

Or is it?
Gifts aside, Ethan’s morning hasn’t been anything to write home about. Sure, life is good, the pack is staying out of trouble, he finally has a mate who boils his blood … in a good way.
Except Shelley hasn’t called. Hasn’t come by. Didn’t even bother to join her son and his girlfriend for Ethan’s annual I’m-a-year-older breakfast.
What Ethan doesn’t know is that Shelley has plans. Plans that have been in progress for weeks. Ones that Ethan will never see coming, and that she’s banked on him not knowing a thing about.
She can only hope her secrecy doesn’t force his inner wolf to the surface—at least, not too early.

Excerpt:
Sinking down onto the edge of my bed, I worked a finger under the flap and took out a regular old birthday card with a chimp on the front and a simple ‘Happy Birthday’ printed across its top in bulky orange letters. Nothing romantic. No hearts. No confessed feelings. No nouns pronouncing who the recipient might be to the sender.
Though, what could she get one with, anyway? To my boyfriend? My face screwed up at that title. My mate? Somehow, I doubted they did those at Hallmark.
Even so, I found myself opening it, like some part of me hoped she had more to say with her own words than with those fabricated by some anonymous message maker.
Four envelopes marked 123, and 4 had been tucked inside.
Moving those out of the way revealed more of Shelley’s neat handwriting across the inner fold of the greeting card. A cryptic note of: ‘What? Did you think this was it?
I frowned, my eyes scanning downward to another little note.
Pssst, in case you can’t figure it out, the envelopes are number-ordered for a reason. Open them. You know you want to.
“What the hell’s got into you, Shel?” I muttered, though my lips twitched even as I set down the card and three of the envelopes, and ripped at the flap of number one.
No card sat inside it. No note. Just a tiny black rag of … I grabbed it between my two fingers and slid it out. Lace?
Lifting it to my nose, I sniffed. A faint whiff of Shelley lingered on its surface, but otherwise, it just had that new fabric smell I’d have expected from the stiffness of the strip.
Setting it aside, I lifted number two, tore through the stuck-down flap, and peered inside.
A couple of glossy photos peeked back, and I withdrew them. Stared at the first one. Tried to figure out what the hell the pinkish-but-not-pink, creamy looking whatever the shot seemed to be of. I shuffled out another from behind it—same thing. Kind of. Except the second one had a couple of ridges.
Only when looking at the third did I notice the faint porous-like indentations, the delicate downy-looking hairs, and realised it was a close-up of … “Skin? Lace … and skin?”
Despite my narrow-eyed frown, my lips curved. Shelley was definitely—definitely—up to something.
And experience warned it would be something really bad.
Or something painfully good.

NOWHERE BUT HERE Synopsis: An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both. Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down. No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

WOW #56: The Revenge Playbook by Rachael Allen @rachael_allen @harperteen

 photo NewWoW_zpsd30de423.jpg

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly awaiting!


23287156.jpg

Title: The Revenge Playbook
Author: Rachael Allen
Publisher: HarperTeen
Expected publication date: June 16, 2015

Blurb:
Don’t get mad, get even! In this poignant and hilarious novel, Rachael Allen brilliantly explores the nuances of high school hierarchies, the traumas sustained on the path to finding true love, and the joy of discovering a friend where you least expect.

In the small town of Ranburne, high school football rules and the players are treated like kings. How they treat the girls they go to school with? That’s a completely different story. Liv, Peyton, Melanie Jane, and Ana each have their own reason for wanting to teach the team a lesson—but it’s only when circumstances bring them together that they come up with the plan to steal the one thing the boys hold sacred. All they have to do is beat them at their own game.

Brimming with sharp observations and pitch-perfect teen voices, fans of Jenny Han and Sarah Mlynowski are sure to fall head-over-heels for this sharp tale—by the author of 17 First Kisses—about the unexpected roads that can lead you to finding yourself.


7326808.jpgQuick bio:
Rachael Allen lives in Atlanta, GA where she's working furiously on her PhD in neuroscience. When she's not doing science or writing YA, you can find her chasing after her toddler and her two sled dogs. Her debut YA novel 17 FIRST KISSES, is forthcoming from Harper Teen. Rachael may or may not have had 17 first kisses...luckily she doesn't kiss and tell.


More stuff about me:
- I love reading and writing YA. 

- I'm represented by the fabulous Susan Hawk of The Bent Agency.

- Laurie Halse Anderson recently gave me writerly advice on a post-it, and it was the culmination of my being.

- I'm obsessed with football. Playing flag football, watching pro football (Falcons Rise Up!), being a belligerent Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets fan, and playing fantasy football with my family.

- I have held a human brain. (It was during anatomy lab. I'm not, like, a serial killer.)

- I'm such a wuss, I get scared watching the previews for horror movies. Seriously, when a scary commercial comes on, I squeal and frantically jab the fast forward button on our DVR remote.

- My debut 17 FIRST KISSES comes out on June 17th, 2014, and according to a friend on Twitter, it's about: "kissing & making mistakes & kissing and friendships & kissing & girls figuring shit out w/o hating each other & kissing." Which I feel is pretty accurate :)

- I love reading about strong female protagonists, fully imagined worlds, rebellion against the establishment, neurodegenerative diseases, and makeover montages - though probably not all in the same book.

- Some writers I love: Laini Taylor, Sarah Ockler, Laurie Halse Anderson, John Green, Libba Bray, Suzanne Collins, E. Lockhart, Kody Keplinger, Sarah Dessen, Lauren Myracle, Stephanie Perkins, Rainbow Rowell, I could go on forever.

Welcome to The Cover Contessa's stop on the Play On blog tour!

21896076.jpgTitle: Play On

Author: Michelle Smith
Release Date: April 21, 2015
Publisher: Spencer Hill Contemporary

Synopsis: In the small town of Lewis Creek, baseball is everything. Especially for all-star pitcher Austin Braxton, who has a one-way ticket out of town with his scholarship to a top university. All that stands between him and a new start is one final season. But when Austin starts flunking Chemistry, his picture-perfect future is in jeopardy. A failing grade means zero playing time, and zero playing time means no scholarship.

Enter Marisa Marlowe, the new girl in town who gets a job at his momma's flower shop. Not only is Marisa some home-schooled super-genius, she's also a baseball fanatic and more than willing to help Austin study. As the two grow closer, there's something about Marisa that makes Austin want more than just baseball and out of Lewis Creek--he wants a future with her. But Marisa has a past that still haunts her, one that she ran all the way to South Carolina to escape.

As Austin starts to peel back the layers of Marisa s pain, it forces him to look beyond the facade of himself and everyone he thought he knew in his town. What he sees instead is that in a small town like Lewis Creek, maybe baseball isn t everything--maybe it is just the thing that ties them all together."



Brooke's Review:
I want to thank Spencer Hill Press for providing me with a copy of this book to read and give an honest review. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my thoughts or review.

I have been very in contemporary reads lately. Especially YA contemporary reads. So given the chance to read this book, which also includes a sports theme, I jumped on it.

One of the things I think I enjoyed the most about this book is it's told from the male point of view. There is just something about YA books told from that point of view that really appeal to me. Maybe it's because we don't often see books sole from this POV. Usually when I do encounter books that include the male POV they are dual POV. So it was nice to see this told from a guy's perspective.

What can I say about Austin. I really loved him. He's sweet and loving and extremely caring about his friends and family. He also holds on to a secret about his father's death that only those closest to him know. And he's been nursing a broken heart for a bit since his girlfriend broke up with him when she graduated and went off to college. His life revolves around baseball and making sure he graduates so he can get the heck out of dodge. But he's not doing so well in his chemistry class and he's afraid he'll fail and lose his scholarship to play ball. He never expects to meet someone that will change how he thinks and sees the world.

Enter Marisa. She's a science nerd who offers to help him with chemistry. Not ready for a relationship, she holds secrets of her own. As Austin slowly breaks down her barriers and learns more and more about her, he sees that she's not the put together person he thought she was. And slowly, they both learn that the secrets that they hold will eat them up inside if they don't let others in.

This book is full of sweet moments and also moments of heartache that tore me apart. It's also full of friendship. And the side line plots do not detract from the main elements of the book in any way. The side plots do a great job in fleshing out Austin's character. He's so strong, even though he has moments where he thinks he's weak. There's nothing that will stand between him and his friendships or those he loves. And the way he fights for it all makes me love him even more. Some of the greatest moments of the book are Austin's interactions with his baseball teammates.

This book is a hidden gem that needs to be read! If you're a fan of Julie Cross' Whatever Life Throws at you, Katie' McGarry's Dare You Too, or the show Friday Night Lights, then this is the read for you. It combines humor, tenderness, and honest life lessons that anyone can relate to. I highly recommend it!
