Needing My Master (A Week with my Romanian #3) by Steffie Dawn

Book Blurb:

 As the third day dawns, Ella is almost half way through her week in Bucharest. After an exciting start to the day, Ella’s snide comment leads to a series of unexpected events for our couple. Join Ella as Master lets her in and our beginner submissive comes to a point in her journey where she doubts whether she can continue or not.


What starts with the couple going back to basics suddenly changes when a knock on the door brings a surprising and unwanted guest. After Master’s revelation Ella feels she has more trust in him than ever before but that trust is suddenly tarnished when things take a horrifying turn. Ella begins to question her life as a submissive and faces a decision that she hadn’t expected to fall upon her. Will Ella make it to day four or will her submissive journey end here?

Jo-Anna's Review:

I absolutely loved this book! By far my favorite so far. 

As you are aware, we are following Ella through her journey of submission to her Romanian Master (insert swoon here). If you haven't read the first two installments, then stop reading this right now. Also, if you haven't read the first two, then read them. Now. Anyways, so Master feels as though he has failed Ella as her Dom. *tear* There is a very intense scene where things unravel. I can't say too much without giving spoilers but holy freaking wow. The ending?? Oh my gosh. I can NOT wait for #4!!!

And hello?? Have you seen the cover?? HOT!

Steffie is amazing and I'm honored to say that I consider her a friend. Her books in depth and even though these novels are serial length, they so full of details and emotion, I feel like I'm there. I just love these books and I can't wait for more!!

Addicted to You by Colina Brennan

When twenty-one-year-old Leah Carter's latest one night stand burglarizes her apartment, her roommate forces her to attend therapy for sex addicts. Leah insists she isn't a sex addict; she just doesn't do relationships. After all, sooner or later, everyone lets you down.
At first, the group sessions are little more than an education on how to be promiscuous. Until she meets the newest addict—blue eyes, killer body, and a smile that tempts relapse.
Psychology student Will McLean is posing as a fellow addict while researching a case study on unusual addictions. But the more he learns about Leah, the more certain he is that his desire to break through her walls and unearth her secrets has nothing to do with his assignment.
As the uncertainties spike alongside the sexual tension, the only thing Leah knows for sure is that falling in love would be disastrous. Too bad love might be one addiction she can't kick.


Colina Brennan is a new adult writer with a love for the fantastical and the romantic. When she isn’t writing, she’s attached at the hip to her kids or chasing her dog or daydreaming about what she wants to write next.

RELEASE DAY-Giving you Forever by Ashley Wilcox

Giving You Forever (The Forever Series, #4)

Book Blurb:
From the moment Nolan Pratt walked into Alexa Arnold’s life everything was forever changed. After a year of dating, the ring was on her finger, the house was purchased, and life was heading down Pleasantville Lane. Everything was perfect.

Or so they thought.

With help from his parent’s inheritance, Nolan takes on a new business adventure, utilizing all his free time. What was once their life- carefree with minimal responsibilities, is no more. When Alexa starts to feel the pressure from school, wedding planning, and lack of help from Nolan, exhaustion kicks in and feelings get hurt, testing the strength of their relationship. But, if there is one thing that Nolan will never compromise, it’s Alexa’s happiness. There’s nothing Nolan Pratt won’t do to make sure Alexa is well taken care of, loved, and happy.

When Nolan’s past resurfaces- a past that Alexa didn’t know existed- will it all be too much? Will Nolan’s devotion to Alexa’s happiness cost him their relationship and lose him the only thing that has ever mattered in his life? Or will Nolan discover that his past doesn’t determine his future and he is worth the happiness he doesn’t think he deserves?

Angie J's Review:

I was given this book as an ARC for a truthful review.

Ok so this book was the 4th book in a series.  I was kinda nervous about it because I didn't read the other 3 books in the series.  I will say, I don't feel like I missed out on anything.  The author did a great job touching back to readers like me and quickly explaining what was up.  I will say I will defo be looking into making time to read the first 3 books.  This was really a great story.

So before I begin my review I will say you need a couple of things ....1...lots and lots of ice water because DAYUM the sex scenes were HOT!!!  2.   Make sure you have the air conditioner on and set very kow to coooool ya off.  3. Make sure you have a date/lover/significant other around for when the book is done!!!  *Snickers*  Trust me on this one!!! 

Ok the review.....*clears throat*....holy moly was this a great read.  Alexa and Nolan have an amazing relationship.  They are both very needy but in a good way...like not annoying but need to spend time with the other.  Nolan is like DREAM BOYFRIEND!!  he is always calling Alexa his princess and doing everything to make her happy.  Alexa is stunned that Nolan would want to be with her even 3 years into their relationship.  She is so happy to spend time with him and plan their dream wedding.  The relationship is a very physical one but they do a good job communicating needs with each other.

The drama happens when Alexa hires a wedding planning...you gget the feeling that she is someone from Nolans past based on her reaction to his name when Alexa brings it up.  *insert ominous music*   When Nolan sees her and tells Alexa about his past with the woman...my heart broke for him.  I dont want to give it away but *sigh* it was defo not what I expected and it made me look at him with even dreamier eyes.

Drama #2 is when the first drama and another issue with Alexa happens.  Nolan feels he is a bay choice and basically cursed.  He abandons Alexa.  Well I must admit at this point in the book, I kinda figured Alexa would go all weepy....NOPE WRONG!!  She basically goes crazy and tracks him down.....

I loved the ending of the book...alot of resolution happens and the epilogue was great.  I loved the HEA for Nolan and Alexa!!!

Some may consider me a jack of all trades, but I consider myself well rounded. I've waitressed, styled hair, answered phones and, most recently, worked full time as mom to my two beautiful little boys.
Then there was this book...
Everyone and their brother started talking about this book series titled Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James. I didn't really pay attention to the craze at first, since I wasn't a big reader- okay, I didn't read at all. But curiosity got the best of me, so I downloaded it to my kindle.
I was immediately hooked. I read the whole series in three days. Yes, three books in three days.
I kept finding all these great books that I HAD to read (just ask my credit card!).
Then I started hearing voices. Voices that turned into stories; stories that were begging to get out of my head.I started writing them down on scraps of paper. Then I transferred them to my computer. Before I knew it, Planning on Forever was born.
The voices in my head are still talking, so I'm still writing.

Book Blurb:

Ethan Richards has fought depression and a host of other demons all his adult life, and it’s caused him to lose everything—his wife, his son, his friends, and he almost loses the one thing that means the most to him—his band. He hits rock bottom and believes there is no way out.

Enter Jenna McCormick, a feisty drug and alcohol counselor, a woman with her own share of troubles. She finds Ethan intriguing but keeps him at a distance while trying to help him face life without crutches. She feels a spark but denies it, knowing that a relationship with unstable Ethan could be dangerous for both of them.

Ethan knows what he wants, though, and isn't used to being told no. Jenna isn't willing to risk Ethan losing his tenuous grip on sobriety, however, and is prepared to deny her deeper feelings to help Ethan climb out of his hole, but he learns how to let go of his pain when he finds that someone is prepared to walk with him through the shadows. Can he convince Jenna that they should take a chance on love or will they forever deny their feelings in an effort to keep Ethan on the straight and narrow?

About the Author

Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade's day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn't stop her from doing a little writing herself.

Unfortunately, there's no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women's fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you'll see that her writing doesn't quite fit any of those genres.

Watch Over Me by Tara Sivec Blog Tour

Book Blurb:
Addison Snow is your typical teenager. She has a family that loves her, friends that make her laugh, and she's wrapped up in the excitement of graduating high school and going off to college to pursue her dream of becoming an author. When her mother, who also happens to be Addison's best friend, dies unexpectedly, her world comes to a crashing halt.

Death changes everyone...

To make the pain go away, Addison and her father travel down separate, dark paths. She chooses to end her grief forever, while he drowns his sorrows in the bottom of a bottle. How do you learn to live again when the most important person in your life is gone?

Addison struggles to pick up the pieces of her life. Instead of getting back to being the carefree teenager she once was, she's stuck handling all of the responsibilities that should have been her father's. She has no time to grieve, no time for emotions, and no time for happiness...until Zander Reinhardt walks in. All it takes is one little handwritten note on a napkin to kick-start her back to life and help her realize that maybe there's more to that life than pain.

But can it really be that simple? Can she really trust this man who makes her feel alive again for the first time in a year?

Addison and Zander both have secrets they aren't ready to share. When the truth finally comes out, is it enough to tear them apart or has something bigger than themselves always been watching over them, pushing them together, making sure they both get their happily ever after?
Angie E's Review:
I was afraid to read this book. I have been so emotional and hormonal that I thought wow this is going to drain me. After I seen a few comments of other bloggers who had started to the book stating they can’t read from all the TEARS, I thought YEP definitely can’t read this one. However, I was NOT going to let Tara down. I LOVE that gal. Seriously she’s awesome =) So I put on my big girl panties threw some glitter around picked up my Kindle and read the first page and put it down. ALREADY tears. GREAT. So I again put on another set of big girl panties and was determined. So I set up my station. Tissues=CHECK, Diet Coke=CHECK, chocolate (shhh don’t tell anyone I cheated on my diet) =CHECK, and Kindle=CHECK. I WAS READY !

So the book starts GLOOMY, so sad and depressing, there was NO cheery moments AT ALL. I felt so depressed reading it. But I knew Tara would not disappoint me. She never has. I kept reading and before I knew it was like at 80% read and thinking WOW what just happened. REALLY? I was yet again mind blown bar Tara. Trying to write this review without spoilers is extremely hard so just be warned. I don’t mean to spoil but there may be an occasional OOPSIE.

Now that I’ve finished the book and sit here gathering my thoughts through tears ( yep add me to the KLEENEX CREW) I’m amazed at how I even finished this book. Is that a bad compliment…. NO !!!! I’m dealing with some personal issues of my own with my mother so this really is hitting home for me. It didn’t register at first but then LIGHTBULB and I’m like Niagra Falls! Tara has proved again just how talented she is. She has such mad amzing writing skills. She’s SUPER WRITER. I’m 100% convinced she can write anything.

OK the book. Addison Snow, I’m not sure how to say this without spoiling, but she broke my heart. I was so sad and filled with her emotions. THAT is what made this a hard read for me. The writing style leaves you NO CHOICE but to feel that emotion of that character. When Addison was finally figuring her life out I couldn’t wait to see the happiness she would have. I wanted so badly to hug her, to be there for HER, to just say I’m sorry for everything you have went through. I wanted to console her so badly (yes I remember this is a book) but I kept thinking about a convo me and Tara had and the whole time I was reading I just kept thinking TARA YOUR MORE AMAZING THAT I EVER THOUGHT !!!!!.

Zander is the answer to EVERYTHING. I mean that. He was and is the one thing in the book that brings out the happiness. His love is so strong for Addison. His whole personality just draws you in. I love how he is so sweet and so attentive. He really is what was best for Addison. They are the perfect couple !

This book for me was definitely a hard read but I would read it again. I love Tara’s writing. I’d totally give this 4 stars. She really did an AMAZING job.

Cover Reveal-Becoming More by Bayli Lane

Book Blurb:

At first it was all freedom, fun, and games for Lilly Fairfield. Being a freshman in college was supposed to create some of the best memories of her life, especially with her best friend, Lauren, and longtime boyfriend, Sander, by her side. 

But the excitement begins to slip away when the people closest to her start to change. They begin moving in a direction Lilly doesn’t want to go, forcing Lilly to be faced with a decision. Should she fight for her relationships with both Sander and Lauren or move on to something different? Something unknown. Someone like…

Colton Davenport. Colton isn’t Lilly’s typical type. He's shockingly sexy with his colorful tattoos, shiny silver lip ring, and ear gauges. His smile alone leaves her breathless. Then again, she hasn’t had a specific type other than Sander. When she meets Colton she feels an automatic attraction that stuns her into utter stillness. She can’t look away, doesn’t want to look away.

Lilly must decide between a life with Sander, a life she always thought she wanted, and an unknown path with Colton.

Will Lilly make the right choices for her future, Becoming More?

Cover Reveal - Playing With Fire (Guarded Hearts #1) by Ashley Piscitelli



Madison Stevens has had a shitty life, her mother died at the age four and her father has always blamed her for it. She went through the foster system and is now attending college. Her boyfriend Chris is not willing to share Madison with anyone, not even her friends. 

Her first day at college she meets Carter James, who makes her want everything she never thought she could have. She knows that she should ignore her feelings for Carter, but it's not as easy as it sounds.

As Carter and Madison begin to fall in love, they face many obstacles. Their biggest one is Chris who is not going to let her go easily.

 Playing with Fire will be the first book in a three book series. It is about the obstacles that stand in your way on the path to love. It tests the characters strength and commitment to each other on every level from old boyfriend/girlfriends, to insecurities, and throws a little violence and scheming into the mix.

"Chris was like fire. It was pretty to look at but if you got too close you got burnt, and if it wasn’t controlled it would destroy everything in its path. Doing what I was about to do with Carter was dangerous, but what can I say I never had parents to warn me not to play with fire."

My dad looked at me for a second then shook his head. “Well, what are you gonna do about it? Your mother always said, ‘The choices we make and the chances we take determine our destiny.’ What do you want your destiny to be Carter?”

I already knew the answer to this I had been thinking about it all day. “I want to tell her how much I love her. I want to be with her, make her laugh, and be able to be the one to hold her when she is upset. I want to show her how amazing she is and be the first person in her life to treat her like that. Every time she comes in a room I can’t take my eyes off of her. When she touches me sometimes I need to remember how to breathe.”

He smiled at me. “Well, you have four days with her to show her how it could be. I would take advantage of that if I were you.”

He was right, I needed to show her how it feels to be loved. I know at this point she hasn’t had that since her mom. “Thanks Dad, you really helped.” He sat back in his chair and turned the TV back on.

Tomorrow was going to be day one of make Maddy mine.

Blog Tour Kickoff for Love Realized by Melanie Codina

Love Realized by Melanie Codina 

Book Blurb:
For Jake, it's always been Gillian

It's been her since that day she unknowingly stole a piece of his heart.....when he watched her fall for one of his best friends. Resolved to the fate that she couldn't be his, he locked up the deeper emotions he felt for her and loved her as a friend. As friends, they went through it all together. Marriages, births, divorces and even death. But when a shameful secret Gillan has kept from her friends is revealed, Jake realizes that she needs him more than ever. He knew what it was like to go through heartbreak and he wasn't about to stand back and watch her endure it alone. He also knew she would turn to him for support. What he wasn't prepared for was the return of the emotions he had long ago locked away. Could he control these emotions again and did he even want to? Could he make her realize his love for her was real, or would she slip through his fingers again?


A scene where Jake finally gets to kiss Gillian =)

Now that his other arm was free, he wrapped it around Gillian and just held her against him. He pressed his face into her hair and smiled as her scent filled his nose, livening his senses. His body was on edge with need, especially since her hands were idly stroking a small area above his waistband. He just needed one more kiss—a real kiss. Sliding his hand up her back and burying it in her hair, he tilted her head back so she had no choice but to look at him. Her eyes met his gaze as he slowly leaned into her, and said softly, “I'm sorry, but I just can’t wait any longer to do this.” Pressing his lips against hers, he felt them soften and mold to his, before he let his tongue glide along the seam. Feeling her softness, tasting her, wanting more, he used his hand in her hair to position her for the perfect angle as he pressed his tongue through the barrier of her lips.

Jake felt her tongue slide out to meet his, and he couldn’t control the rumble of satisfaction that escaped him as his body responded to hers. The hands that had been at his low back were now digging into his skin through his shirt, spurring him on further even as he felt her tongue slip into his mouth. He wanted to devour her, take all of her inside him and keep her all to himself. It was like he couldn’t get her close enough as the two of them stood in her living room, making out, with their sons in the next room. Jake wanted to care, but couldn’t bring himself to do it. This kiss had been a long time coming, and he wasn’t going to apologize for this inherent need to have her. Her lips on his, her tongue stroking his, her nails digging into his back, his body tightened further, and he pressed his hips forward so she knew exactly what she was doing to him.  She moaned in response and pressed her hips back into his … Oh yeah, he was a goner for sure.

Not wanting to stop, but knowing he had to, Jake slowed down the kiss. He let his lips linger against hers for a moment before he gently sucked her lower lip into his mouth one more time before pulling back. When he looked down at her, he could actually see the lust hazing her eyes as she opened them, and a slow smile spread across her face. He rubbed a finger across her now swollen bottom lip, reveling in the softness and the fact that he could touch them—that they were his now. He sighed in contentment and said, “Sorry, but I couldn’t wait another minute to do that. I hope I didn’t embarrass you in front of Allie, but I really missed you.”

Gillian let out one of those adorable snorts of hers before saying, “To feel embarrassed, I would have to be aware of people around me. I can only see you right now, Jake.”
This scene starts with one of my favorite lines of the book =)

Jake ended the kiss and looked her in the eyes. There was questioning in his eyes … waiting for an answer. “Can I have you Gillian?” She lifted one hand up and gently swept back the lock of hair that had fallen forward into his face. Her hand followed the hair back on his head as she ran her fingers through the thick locks, caressing him. Jake sighed and closed his eyes as he melted into her hand. Her hands met at the base of his neck, and she tilted his head so she could place her own soft kisses to his skin. First, her lips found his eyelids, then the tip of his nose, and finally his forehead, before returning to his lips.

After placing one more kiss on his lips, she pulled away ever so slightly so that she could whisper, “Will you catch me Jake?” She felt his hands tighten his hold on her. “I'm falling for you, Jake, but I need to know that you’ll catch me.”

Once again, his hands were in her hair, angling her face toward his, so he had her complete attention, before saying, “The only place you will fall, Gillian, is right where you are, in these arms, in my life. You are everything to me, and I will do whatever I have to do to prove that to you.” He leaned in to her, and she could feel his trembling lips on hers. Leaning his forehead against hers, he whispered, “Fall, Gillian. Go ahead and fall, and I promise I’ll catch you.”

She knew he was holding himself back, and she wanted him to let go. His whispered reassurance sounded almost desperate—he was begging her to take a chance on him … so she took it. “Ask me again, Jake,” she whispered back to him.

When he pulled his head away from hers, he looked her in the eyes and asked in a voice laced with passion and desperation, “Can I have you Gillian?”

She smiled at him, “Yes, Jake. You can have me … I'm yours.”

Angie J's Review:

I received this book from the author.

Now if you are a follower of my blog you know we are not the most traditional bloggers sooooo with that stated I must start this by saying I have a bit of a girlie crush on the author ...yup I sure do.  She is an amazing , giving and caring person so I was honored and thrilled when she asked me to read this book for her.

The story starts out with Gillian looking around at her friends and family and thinking what a great, kickass life she has.  She is happily attending to her sons birthday guest when her co-worker enters the house with...........the Home Wrecking Whore....... the woman who her husband had (as in past tense) been sleeping with.  Welp guess what?  Logan lied and all kinds of hell breaks lose for Gillian.  Her life spins out of control and she finds herself confronting her husband in front of family and JAKE about what he has done.  

Jake.....dreamy sigh.......Swooning......licking my lips in breathless anticipation for him to come to my door...oh wait better get back to the review.....So Jake takes a stand and comforts Gillian through this emotional time.  Hey guess what Peps?  Jake has been in total and desperate love with Gillian since they were 17!!!  He didn't ball up and admit it so Logan got the girl.

Well Gillian decides to get out and start dating with the help Super Bitch Allie.  Well Jake doesn't take this news very well because he has decided that he will get Gillian this time.  I felt so bad for Jake at the scene when he sees "his future" leaving with another man.  I was totally broken for Jake because DAMN IT I want Jake!!!

Well since this is a romance book.....you kinda guessed it, Jake and Gillian get to hitting the sheets, Couch, Bed, shower stall, etc.  The scene that sets all the sexing in motion is when Jake says "Can I have you Gillian?"  I was on the floor and screaming "ANSWER HIM ALREADY!!!!!! and it better damn well be a YES!!!"

Well the couple in this book area  great start to this series.  I loved the side plot of someone vandalizing Logan's vehicle and wondered who it was.  I was pretty stunned when the person was revealed.  I didn't see it coming but then again i was really only reading the book for the Jake/Gillian sex scenes at that point...JK!!!!  I loved the other little surprise the author gives us for Jake and Gillian...wanna know???  Well get our "one click" finger busy and down load it from amazon already!!!!

Brenda's Review:

"Can I have you, Gillian?"  That was my favorite line from the book! It made me tear up every time I read it! This book will suck you in from the very first chapter! You instantly love Gillian. I want to BE Gillian when I grow up! She's one of cc the strongest, kind, caring FORGIVING people you'll meet....but that doesn't mean she'll take CRAP from anyone... oh no!!! You'll get s second chance....once!!! Jake....awwwww, loved him! It's the reason I want to be Gillian!! Patiently waits for his woman....for 16+ years!!!! ALLIE--- OMG everyone needs an ALLIE in their life!!! I am hoping the next book in this series is about her!!!! She needs her own book!

READ THIS BOOK! You will love it just as much as me!!#

Author Interview:

*Enters Brenda and Angie J from the Twinsie Talk Book Reviews.  The girls scan the crowded Bronx Pizza Place.  They spy Jake and both get a little weak in the knees.  They sigh and start to stroll over while recomposing themselves* 

Angie and Brenda : Hi Melanie and *giggles and blushes because we know a lot of his personal business * Hi Jake.  Thanks for meeting with us to talk about the book.  We promise to not take much of your time because we know you are working on the second book Melanie and Jake we know you want to get back to Gillian.

Melanie: *hugs both ladies* Hi! It’s so great to finally meet you both!
Jake: *stands up and shakes hands* Hello ladies, its great to meet you.  And yes, you are correct, I want to get back to my girl.

Brenda: “So how does it feel to have your first book published Melanie??

Melanie: It feels pretty surreal most of the time. It was never something in the game plan for me. It just sort of happened one day. And then it became what it is, and I’m so glad that I went for it.

Angie: “Jake now that EVERYONE knows you and Gillian’s history are any of them surprised how easily you transitioned from Friends to more than Friends?” *wink wink*

Jake: Honestly, I don’t think so. We have a pretty close group of friends, and Gillian and I have always been close to each other, so for them it just seems normal. I think. Or at least I hope it does. With the exception of Logan, for obvious reasons. But outside of our friends, I could really care less what they think. I’ve got my girl, and that’s all that matters to me.

Brenda: “Melanie, how long do we have to wait to read the next book?”

Melanie: Well Brenda, I am currently writing it. And I have high expectations for it to be complete before the end of summer. There of course are other factors involved like editing and cover, so I don’t have a solid date for you on that at the moment.

Angie :”Jake what do you think is the most amazing attribute of Gillian?  It can be physical or intelligence.”

Jake: *sighs and a big smile spreads across his face* The way she loves. Gillian doesn’t waste her time on people that don’t deserve her, but those in her life, get 110% of her attention and love. They don’t have to ask for anything from her, because she gives it before they even know they need it. She is the center of attention without needing it or demanding it, everyone just wants to be around her.

Brenda: “Melanie some of the scenes in the book were sooo emotional.  You are either an AMAZING writer (which is obvious) or you actually experienced something similar.  How much did you experience?”

Melanie: There are quite of few scenes that I wrote that either came from personal experience or come straight from the fear of something like that happening. It is no secret that I was a teenage mother and have four great kids, so all of that emotion was easy to interpret. Scenes like the one in the driveway contain emotions that evolve from the fear of what-if or every-woman’s-worst-nightmare type scenarios. I simply put myself there and tried to imagine how I would feel if it were me. It is my hope that I cried and laughed at all the same parts as any of the readers did, showing that I put them in that position too.

Angie: “Jake how is your relationship with Logan fairing now.”

Jake: I guess you could say it’s better than most people would expect. Logan and I have been friends for a long time, but we are guys, and there are definitely egos involved. I don’t antagonize him and he behaves, because he knows this how it’s going to be. He is now sleeping in the bed he made, and he knows it. I know it. I don’t regret for one second that our friendship might appear strained, because even if I wasn’t lucky enough for Gillian to fall in love with me, Logan lost my respect. He has to earn that back. In the meantime, we act like adults because that is what we are, and that is what Gillian wants for all of us.

Brenda: “Melanie, I think every man could learn something from Jake.  Has your husband learned anything from Jake?”

Melanie: *lets out a laugh* Has my husband learned anything from Jake? I would venture to say that both men have a lot of similarities. Whether they have learned them from each other, I don’t know. Both men posses qualities that any man should be happy to have, and any woman should be happy to experience.

Angie: “Jake has Gillian been given a super hero name???  If so, what is it????”

Jake: *once again smiling as he thinks of Gillian* Well I don’t know that she has ever been given an official title, but Super Woman comes to mind.

Brenda:”Melanie I love Gillian’s BFF, Allie!  She is hilarious without a filter!!  I wished more people could be like her!  Do you have an Allie?”

Melanie: Actually Brenda, I have a few Allie’s in my life. I have friends that range from old high school friends who know some of my old secrets. As well as a group of new ones who hold all my newer secrets. On occasion, they collide and it makes it even better.

Angie :”Jake what is one thing our readers would love to know about you that we didn’t learn in your book……just one little something that us girls can brag about being the first to learn……..come on…PLEASE…..one little thing…….*snickers* it can be naughty.  Our readers LOVE naughty!!!!”

Jake: *giving Angie a sexy grin* Well I wouldn’t want to disappoint your readers, but I have to say, I really only do naughty for Gillian. But I would love to show you my new tattoo. *lifting his shirt to expose his chest* Just got it done last week. It’s obvious that its mine and Gillian’s initials, but I had to make sure it was placed over my heart.
(It is a fancy script J with the G entwined into it. Of course the look on Jake’s face has both of you sigh with longing)

OMG we have had so much fun with you two…next time we hope Gillian can come as well.   Thanks for letting us hang and ask a bunch of questions and quietly lust over you Jake….should things not work out…just saying….we would so be there to be the shoulders for you to cry on J

Jake: *gives a small laugh as he stands and pulls back Melanie’s chair* Thank you for having us. I’ll will make sure to keep that in mind. *wink* Now if you ladies will excuse me, I have to get back to my girl.

About the Author:

Melanie is an amazing mother of four, an awesome and tolerant wife to one, and nurse to many. If you don’t believe her, just ask anyone in her family, they know what to say. She is also a devoted chauffeur, the keeper of missing socks, a genius according to a six year old, the coolest soccer uniform coordinator according to a twelve year old, and the best damn ‘mac-n-cheese-with-cut-up-hot-dog maker in the whole world. Well that last title isn’t really official, but it’s still pretty cool to be called it.

When not being ordered around by any of the kids, you can find her with her nose in a book or on the sideline of a soccer game cheering on one team or another. But that’s mostly because she has a thing for the coach. When she is not doing all of the above, you can find her obsessed with a group of fictional characters all vying for a spot on the page of whatever she’s working on. It’s a fun and crazy life to lead, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
