It was always the two of them. Rowan and Luke. Luke and Rowan. Until it
He walked out to follow his dreams. She eventually moved on without him
and learned to believe again in the possibility of happily ever after. Until
Luke walked back in—in a big, viral social media, way.
Luke learned dreams were hollow without someone to share them with. Now
he’ll do anything to make Rowan believe she is the most important thing in the
world to him—more important than the fame and the fans.
Jilted and gun-shy, Rowan isn’t sure she has it in her to trust again.
The bright lights of Music City create deep shadows where secrets and lies
thrive and believing in someone might be the hardest thing she’s ever had to
The minister glanced between them. In a low voice he asked,
“Are you ready?”
“Yes,” they both said.
He raised his voice so the congregation could her him.
“Michael and Rowan, marriage is a promise between two people to love, trust,
and honor each other. It takes trust to know in your hearts you only want the
best for each other. It takes—”
A commotion at the back of the chapel stopped the minister
from telling them what else it took.
“Sir, you can’t go in. There’s a wedding in progress!”
She recognized their wedding planner Stephanie’s voice.
“I know. I’m here to stop it.”
Rowan’s heart thumped in her chest and her fingers tingled
from the flow of adrenaline suddenly coursing through her. She squeezed her
eyes closed. “Please God, no,” she whispered.
Alternate title: The Itty Bitty Reader Takes On the Marketplace Monopoly Giant
If you do any advance copy reading of books or are in any book groups or authors’ groups on Facebook, you’ve probably seen authors and readers alike discussing their reviews disappearing from Amazon recently. Not long ago, all my reviews were deleted by Amazon, and I'll share some suggestions on what to do, should you find yourself in this situation, and some tips on how to hopefully avoid it happening to you in the future.
Sadly, Amazon’s review system, especially for books, isn’t perfect and there are certainly abuses to it, but reviews really are critical to both authors and readers. For authors, the more reviews their book has, the more notice it gets, which translates to more sales. For readers, reviews hopefully give us accurate information so we can decide if a book is worth our time and money or if we should just move along to the next one.
I’ve been reading advance copies and reviewing for a…
If you haven't yet read Pippa Grant, you're really missing out! With titles like Stud in the Stacks,Mr. McHottie, The Pilot and the Puck-Up,and her latest, Royally Pucked,(available 4/6/18) this author is either slightly deranged, incredibly clever, or maybe a bit of both. The series is loosely based on hockey-playing twin brothers, Zeus and Aries, their sister, friends and teammates. Zeus and Aries are gentle giants with unique, memorable personalities and shenanigans somehow seem to surround them.
One thing is sure. You've never had a reading experience like Ms. Grant delivers. I've read a lot of rom-coms, but her books are an entire family, interactive experience. Provided you're reading in the company of family.
I'm going to let you in on a little secret about me. I read a lot. I mean A LOT. I've done over 450 book reviews in the last year, and there are another 10 to 20 in that time that I read and didn't review. As you can imagine, they all blur together, and only the truly exceptional authors and works leave an indelible mark on me. Jaxson Kidman is one of those authors.
But I have yet to begin to figure him out. It's undeniably evident he gives everything of himself to every work. His work is vulnerable. It's transparent. It's authentic. His pain, his tragedies and his triumphs are all there, laid bare for the reader to experience. Why? That's the part I don't understand. Why would anyone be willing to flay himself open for the whole world to see? It could be that it's cathartic. Perhaps it's a way of exorcising demons. Some might say it's a gimmick to sell books, but anyone who has read his work knows that's not the case. What I do know i…
