sharing you book coverReviewed by Jennifer Jensen

In her latest New Adult genre novel, Molly McAdams challenges her readers’ views on the the subject of infidelity. Sharing You is centered on twenty-somethings Kamryn Cunningham and Brody Saco, who meet and fall in love when Kamryn moves to his small town to escape a life of privilege and a loveless relationship. Brody is also dealing with demons of his own—a wife he no longer loves, and a five-year-old tragedy that continues to haunt him and keeps him in his tension-filled marriage out of guilt.

Kamryn and Brody are instantly drawn to one another, but Kamryn has no interest in being the other woman. Brody’s intense feelings for Kamryn and the belief that he is meant to spend the rest of his life with her give Brody the courage that he needs to finally end his

I often look at reading as a way to escape. I hunker down on the couch with a bowl of snacks, a glass of wine, and prepare to take a break from real life. The Beautiful Ashes, by Jeaniene Frost, fits this description for a perfect fall read. Full of romance, danger, and mystery, I was only disappointed that the novel had to end.

Ivy has been through some hard times. A week after her sister Jasmine was kidnapped, her adoptive parents died in a car accident. On top of all that, Ivy is seeing strange visions of a different, darker world placed exactly on top of her own. Enter Adrian, a tall, dark, and handsome bad boy with a past that he refuses to let go. Ivy and Adrian set out on a journey filled with twists and turns

saving the innocents book coverReviewed by Shannon Trenton

How far would you go to protect someone you just met? If you sought the truth about your past – and found it – could you let it go and reinvent yourself?

Saving the Innocents by Randall Kenneth Drake seeks to answer these questions and more against the backdrop of a riveting tale of suspense. Mary Jane has spent years searching for the father that abandoned her, following tips from strangers in town after town. Her life will change, though, in the events of eight days that will force her to reevaluate her priorities and her perspective. In the process, she makes unlikely friends and discovers in herself a new purpose at the moment that her life seems to be falling apart.

While Mary Jane is running after her father, young Sera is running from

If you have read any of the Connections Series, then you know that Ben Covington is the mind that you have wanted to get into. This story delves deeper into Ben’s story, the reason behind some of the things he did in previous books, and ties up many loose ends. Although I wasn’t a huge fan of the female lead and I definitely felt that I needed to know her in order to understand things that happened in Ben’s past.

Frayed is a spin-off that gives us a glimpse of a man who had it all and lost it. For anyone who has ever hit the bottom and felt like they will never be able to get it back together, this is a great read for you. Ben is afraid of failing again due to his past and now, he

Torn is the second book in the Connection series. If you have not read it yet, I definitely recommend doing so. I absolutely loved the first book of the series, so my excitement to read Torn was heightened even before I got my hands on it. I have a great love for trilogies and even though this one only had two books in the series, I wanted to see how it would wrap itself up without having a third. The difference between this book and others I have read like it, is that it did not draw out the initial love story for the entire length of the first book. We have all seen it before: First book is about the love story and typically a fight to be together. Second book is about falling in love and getting

Trying to escape a life that you don’t want doesn’t seem to be as easy as one would think. Getting a new lease on life – new identification, name, credit cards, car, basically anything you would need to restart somewhere new – seemed like a safe bet to Charlie Rourke. Only that it wasn’t when the time came to do a simple favor for her father, Sam because she was under the impression that was over and in the past. After fulfilling Sam’s request, Charlie is bound and determined to make a life for herself, away from Sam under this new identity that he offered her.

It’s how she meets Cain, the super gorgeous and rich owner of Penny’s, a strip club located in Miami. Yes, she decides to become a stripper. It is fast and easy money–she will be able

Oh how I swooned over One Tiny Lie and all of the book’s characters! I seriously did not want it to end, and was slightly depressed when it did.

Is it possible to have a set plan for your entire life and career that you strive to achieve when you’re an adult? It is possible for Livie, the intelligent and very practical 18 year old we meet in this novel. She’s incredibly driven to become a Pediatric Oncologist and takes the correct steps to assure she achieves just that. Livie’s older sister (who I wish I could be friends with in real life) seems to think that Livie is too perfect, and has this notion that Livie is about to crack at any moment. They lost their parents in a car accident, and all they have is each other. While Kacey struggled afterwards

In Molly McAdams’ Deceiving Lies, the sequel to Forgiving Lies, Rachel and Kash are supposed to be in love and planning their wedding. But certain things keep happening and derailing the wedding plans at every corner. Rachel’s life is at stake and Kash will do anything to protect her.

I loved and enjoyed Deceiving Lies just as much as I enjoyed Forgiving Lies. Rachel and Kash are super cute together and I love their chemistry. This book is full of twist and turns and keeps you wanting more just like Forgiving Lies did. This book to the story in an interesting direction and introduced the character of Trent who kept me turning pages with his je ne sais quoi.

Be With Me by J. Lynn is the story of Teresa Hamilton and Jase Winstead. Both are from very different worlds and both want different things out of life. Teresa is healing from a torn ACL and is basically at college to pass the time until she can go back to doing what she loves, dancing. Jase has too many secrets and more responsibilities than a college kid should have. Jase and Teresa shared a mind-blowing kiss one night and are not quite sure where to go from that kiss.

It has been a while since I’ve read Wait For You, J. Lynn’s first book, so could not remember some of the things mentioned in Be With Me. However, once the story
