Blog Tour – An Armored Heart by RC Boldt

RULE #1: Do not catch feelings for the man who doesn’t believe in love.

An Armored Heart by RC Boldt is now live! 

Four months. That’s how long I’ll need to pretend to be Steele Cunningham’s doting girlfriend.

I agreed to this insanity only to save my restaurant. He’s doing it because he needs someone outside his “social circle” to stick it to his meddling parents and clingy ex.

Ruthless and emotionless in both his personal life and his career, Steele’s ego rivals his net worth.

Operating on joy and positivity—and a healthy bit of feistiness—I challenge him at every step.

He’s a tin man—heartless and cold. Falling for him would be a colossal mistake, because there’s no chance he’ll ever love me.

He can’t.

After all, he’s the man with an armored heart.

Confessions, Book 8

Rebellion is necessary for development of character. ~ Cynthia Voight

Impatient. Impulsive. Rebellious.
Zayne Copeland’s been getting in trouble for as long as he can remember.

But if trouble goes by the name Ethan Holt, he’s quite okay with that.

Why wouldn’t he be, when Ethan has been the one to show him what love is?

From boys to men. From school to The Office.

He and Ethan have always been inseparable.

They’re possessive of one another, protective to a fault.

They had to be to survive.


But as they fall deeper for Chloé, the woman they’ve claimed as their own,

they realize they have to open up their lives in order to hang on to her.


Three fathers. An overprotective brother. Their relationship becoming public. It would be enough to send two weaker men running.

Lucky for Chloé, Ethan and Zayne have never been the type to back down from a challenge.

Confessions: Zayne is the continuation of Chloé, Ethan & Zayne’s story and should only be read after Confessions: Ethan.

Blog Tour – You Will Bow by Rachel Leigh

You Will Bow by Rachel Leigh is now live!

My first year at college has been anything but ordinary.
After spending so much energy to trying to protect my secret, I failed to realize it’s not the past I need to fear—It’s my future that’s at stake.

I’ve finally found someone who doesn’t judge me for my sins and stays by my side while I trudge through the shadowy corners of my past.
The only problem is, his friends have other plans.
One watches me day and night—painting a picture of a disturbed life together.
And the other is hanging my secret over my head as leverage to aide in his own scheme.
But everyone has a weakness, and that weakness will be mine.

There once was a sicko
who watched me day and night.
His invisible leash,
never let me out of his sight.

His friends were unlike him,
one a monster I feared.
The other bled crimson,
with a heart that was pure.

Blog Tour – I’ll Always Be With You by Monica Murphy

I’ll Always Be With You by Monica Murphy is now live! 

New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy returns to Lancaster Prep with a new enemies to lovers romance…

Weston Fontaine is the hottest senior at Lancaster Prep.

And he knows it.

He’s gorgeous. Confident. Smart.

Too smart.

Everyone loves him. He could have any girl on campus, except for one.


I’m a Lancaster, meaning I’m basically untouchable–or so I thought. It’s my family who owns this God forsaken private school that I don’t want to attend. But according to my parents, I have to endure my senior year at Lancaster Prep before I can return to what I love the most: ballet.

West doesn’t make my time here easy. He’s arrogant. Crude. Insufferable. He torments me in the worst way, to the point that I can’t stand him. Yet he’s the only boy I’ve ever let touch me…

You see, West and I? We share a secret. On a hot summer night in Paris, we hooked up. And I never do that. Ever. I revealed parts of myself to him I’ve never shown anyone else. He’s seen me at my most vulnerable. I told him my secrets. And he told me his. In Paris, he was sexy. Protective. Even dare I say…sweet.

Now he’s the villain in my story, yet I can’t help but chase after that feeling only West can give me. Despite our hatred for each other, we somehow burn brighter when we’re together. So what happens when you helplessly fall for the one person you know is bad for you?

If you’re like me, you go ahead and fall for him anyway.

He’s a shy hockey heartthrob.
She’s not afraid to ask for what she wants.
Can these two find a neutral zone?

Neutral Zone by Teagan Hunter is now live! 

To my fans, I’m known as Ivan Fitzgerald.

To my teammates, I’m just Fitz.

And to the girl I’ve been talking to online, I’m ShootsAndScores.

There’s no doubt in my mind that the woman on the other side of the screen is completely out of my league. Why wouldn’t she be? Sure, I’m a professional hockey player, but that doesn’t mean anything when I’m shy and awkward in the most basic social situations and she’s a fiery vixen who oozes sex appeal.

No matter how badly I want her, I can’t have her. Because the woman I love watching so much? The one I might be slowly falling for?

She’s not just some stranger on the internet. It’s Rosie, the woman who serves me coffee and donuts every morning.

And she has no clue it’s me.

Release Date: May 12

My Best Friend. Young. Tempting.

She bid on me at my company’s charity auction and won. Back then, she was too young, with hearts in her eyes and her whole life ahead of her. That’s how we started, and after all this time, she’s become my best friend.

Being a single dad of twins and running Colorado’s most successful summer sports company requires control and focus. Both of which are slipping through my fingers.

I just crashed her date and watched her kiss another man. The whole time her eyes were on me.

Now, she’s living in my house, nannying my kids for the summer, and saying she wants to “explore” things that drip with the kind of filthy curiosity that I crave.

I don’t want her to have anyone else, but I know it’ll change us if I take what I want. And, if we destroy our friendship it’ll ruin me. Or worse, end up breaking my kid’s hearts and hers.

This is a spicy small-town interconnected, standalone romance.

One click Becoming Bennet by Cora Rose & Nicole Dykes now!

About Becoming Bennet

I cannot stand Bennet Montgomery.

His rugged hotness knows no bounds and his unwavering cheery disposition is maddening. How can someone be that happy all the time? His smile infuriates me.

I need to keep my distance from this man and all his Midwest charm. I have my camboy career to focus on and I can’t afford to get attached or bogged down with his nonsense.

But when Bennet receives devastating news about his mother, his grief consumes him.

I don’t know what to make of this new sad side of Bennet. All I know is that his teary eyes infuriate me even more than his smile. I need to get his stupid smile back.

So that’s how I wind up accompanying him home to his tiny town in rural Kansas.

And let me tell you, this California boy is not cut out for a land where fruit salad has marshmallows and where you’re just as likely to be eaten by a feral cow as you are to be chased down by an angry rooster. *Shudder*

The worst part is, Bennet and I are forced to share one bed in a cramped trailer. And as I try my hardest to comfort this man who I can barely call a friend, I wonder if maybe that flutter in my chest isn’t just heartburn. Maybe I can allow myself to get swept up in him…just for a bit.

That is, if a rogue tornado doesn’t sweep me away first.

Becoming Bennet is a funny and sweet MM romance with forced proximity and only one bed.

Save One Thing by Julia Wolf is now live!

I have one simple rule: no boyfriends until graduation.

I’m too close to my goal of landing a full ride to college to get distracted now.

Besides, I blend in better at the skate park than I do in the hallowed halls of Savage Academy, boarding school for the rich and overprivileged, so staying away from guys hasn’t been a problem…

Until him.

Beckett Savage. Coldly handsome. Forever brooding. I thought he hated me. His attempt to get me expelled two years ago would leave that impression on anyone.

But lately, Beckett isn’t acting like he hates me.

He’s watching me with his icy blue eyes, showing up everywhere I go, and getting between me and any other guy who dares to look at me.

When he lets me see beneath his untouchable veneer, I’m shocked at what I find.

Suddenly, my one simple rule is becoming complicated.

Giving in to my feelings for Beckett Savage could either be the beginning of something great…or the end of everything I’ve worked for.

Blog Tour – Iced Out by Veronica Eden

 Release Date: May 8


Dancing on bartops means the night is going great. Exiting the bar hauled over the shoulder of Heston University’s infamous hockey captain? Not my idea of a good time.

Iced Out by Veronica Eden 

But I needed an escape route to evade my would-be knight’s biggest rival…my brother.

Easton Blake is the perfect reminder of why I avoid hockey players. He’s cocky, frustratingly sexy, and accustomed to every girl in his orbit falling for his charm. With his sultry smile that tells me he knows all the ways to make girls come undone with his touch, I’m almost the next score on his stats.
Except I have no time for distractions when I’m focused on graduating early. Gaining Easton’s attention was never part of my plans. Of course, from the moment he catches me shaking my assets on the bar, he decides I’m his next goal.
Instead of sticking to my own rules, I do something I shouldn’t: I dare him to try.
Easton’s never met a challenge he wouldn’t accept. He makes it clear he won’t be iced out without convincing me to give him a chance.
I swore off hockey players for a reason. If I go there again, can I trust Easton Blake not to break my heart?

Blog Tour – Cowgirl Up and Ride by Lorelei James

Cowgirl Up and Ride, a heat-filled, grumpy-sunshine, age-gap, small town romance full of steam from New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James is available now!

A no-strings-attached arrangement should’ve been easy. But he can’t seem to stay away from her.

AJ Foster has loved Cord McKay her entire life. From the moment he’d rescued her after falling off her horse, she’d imagined the tall dark and handsome man as her very own prince charming. But even now that she’s an adult, past pigtails and ponies, her sexy, grumpy neighbor ignores her. 


Divorced rancher Cord McKay is committed to two things: his young son and the family ranch. He has no time for women—especially not his little sister’s best friend who has grown into the definition of female temptation. Besides, the thirteen-year age difference between them means he’s too old for her . . . right? 


But one reckless night, AJ suggests a secret summer fling and Cord can’t resist, as long as she abides by one rule: he’s in charge. Nothing could have prepared innocent AJ for the dirty-talking, growly cowboy whose hidden sweetness is as addictive as his expert touch. 


As the summer ends, stubborn Cord believes he can withstand AJ’s efforts to break through his defenses, but AJ is determined to win the single dad’s heart no matter what it takes.

“Man, that’s harsh. You tellin’ me you wouldn’t make time if someone came along?”

  Cord’s beer stopped halfway to his mouth. His attention wandered to a woman swinging her hips on the dance floor.

  Oh yeah. He’d make time for her in a fucking heartbeat.

  Holy hell. Her legs went on forever. His gaze started at the heels of her high-heeled silver boots, gradually traveling up along the sexy line of those shapely legs, ending at her luscious ass barely hidden beneath an extremely short denim skirt. When her dance partner twirled her, Cord caught a glimpse of bright red bikini panties.

  Lust whomped him in the gut.

  He’d been so busy checking out her ass he hadn’t seen her face. Her backside faced him—not that he was complaining—and a cheap straw cowboy hat covered her head. Her strong, tanned arms slid around the wide shoulders of the lucky cowboy as she sashayed closer to grind her pelvis against his. The cowboy whooped, clamping his hands on her ass in a dirty dancing move that’d make Patrick Swayze jealous.

  It caused a burst of envy in Cord too. Nonchalantly he asked, “Kade, who’s the chick on the dance floor?”

  “Which one?”

  “The one with the never endin’ legs puttin’ on the show in the miniskirt.”

  Kade squinted. “You mean AJ?”

  AJ? Not a familiar name. “Yeah.”

  “She’s quite the dancer, huh?”

  “Sure is.”

  AJ performed a shimmy-shake with her hips, while snaking her arms above her head. The movement caused her tight lace shirt to slide up, exposing the smooth curve of her lower back.

  Cord withheld a groan. Nothing was sexier than that dimpled section of a woman’s back above her ass. Nothing.

  With the exception of those unbelievably hot legs.

  Every wicked undulation of her hips resulted in the fringe on her skirt swishing across the back of her firm thighs. He’d never been jealous of a skirt before now, but he sure as hell was right then.

  “She seein’ the guy she’s dancin’ with?”

  “Mikey? Nah. Not for lack of tryin’ on his part. AJ doesn’t lack for partners.”

  “I’ll bet.”

  “She’s sweet as the day is long. How your sister hasn’t corrupted her is beyond me. She ain’t as wild as Keely, but ain’t for want of volunteers to take her for a walk on the wild side.”

  Walk? Hell, Cord would take her for a ride on the wild side. Binding her mile-long legs around his waist as he drove into her hard and fast. Feeling those slender thighs draped over his shoulders as she rode his face.

  Jesus. Been an ice age since he’d had a woman, especially a buckle bunny cowboy-toy like her—built for speed with curves that’d lead a man straight into temptation.

  Cord nursed his beer, his eyes never straying from her twisting form. Still, something about her seemed…familiar.

  AJ threw back her head and laughed. Her straw hat tumbled to the floor.

  Come on, baby doll, bend over and pick it up.

  She twirled his direction and Cord finally saw her face.

  If his lips weren’t pressed against the beer bottle, his jaw would’ve smacked his knees.

  The blonde sexpot with the killer legs and fantastic ass was none other than little Amy Jo Foster. His astonished gaze zeroed in on the cleavage spilling out of her V-necked blouse.

  Nothing little about her now.

  Talk about degenerate behavior. He’d been ogling his much-younger sister’s best friend. His son’s former babysitter.

  Christ on a crutch.

  Good thing she’d never waltzed into his house dressed like that—a sex kitten on the prowl. He’d’ve been arrested for his lewd thoughts alone. Dammit, why couldn’t he stop wondering whether her nipples were pale pink like her lips or cherry red like her undies?

  Amy Jo’s large silvery-gray eyes met his for a moment. The come-hither smolder she aimed at him nearly knocked him off his damn barstool.

  Where’d she learn that “fuck me now, Big Daddy” stare? She was too damn young.

  She’s old enough.

  And he was old enough to know better.

  Wasn’t he?

  Apparently not.

  Amy Jo shrieked as Mikey lifted her up, gifting Cord with another glimpse of those sexy panties.

  Cord bristled at seeing Amy Jo manhandled. Oh, he’d teach that pup with the roving paws a thing or two about manners.

  Right. You’d love a chance to teach her a thing or two about how a real man would handle her.

  Before Cord’s butt left the chair to rescue her, Amy Jo broke Mikey’s hold and stooped over to retrieve her hat. This time when their eyes met, she licked her lips and smiled seductively. Wantonly. Like she was picturing him buck-assed nekkid in just his damn hat.

  Another wave of lust heated his balls. Then he knew the kiss she’d given him at Carter and Macie’s wedding reception last year hadn’t been a result of too much champagne.

  His brain flashed back to the wedding dance at the Bar 9. The early autumn night held a bite of chill as the evening’s festivities were winding down. Dozens of couples boot-scooted on an improvised dance floor beneath a white tent. He’d drifted off, preferring to drink a Fat Tire beer alone. Amusing himself by watching Ky and a couple of boys chasing giggling girls around in the preschool version of two-stepping.

  A swish of fabric caught his attention. He turned when Amy Jo sidled up, wearing an ankle length dress the color of sunshine, which fit the fresh, clean, sunshiny scent flowing from her.

  He managed a smile. “Amy Jo.”

  “I thought that was you, hiding over here all by your lonesome.”

  “Story of my life.”

  Silence stretched as thorny as the rose bushes lining the walkway.

  Cord shifted his stance. Lately, being around Amy Jo made him feel like a tongue-tied fool. He couldn’t tell her how pretty she looked without sounding like a total letch. He couldn’t mention how goddamn good she smelled without coming across like a deranged bloodhound, or worse—some kind of hopeful horndog.

  When in doubt…“Nice night,” he offered lamely.

  “That it is.” She shivered discreetly. “If a bit chilly.”

  Should he act gentlemanly and offer her his suit coat? Nah. She’d probably think he was an old coot.

  Which he was.

  Dammit. Say something. Anything.

  “You havin’ fun?”

  “Absolutely. Weddings are always fun, aren’t they?”

  Cord bit back a smart retort and swigged his beer.

  “Why aren’t you out there cutting a rug like the rest of your McKay brothers and cousins?”

  With his beer bottle, Cord gestured to Ky and the kids. “Someone’s gotta keep an eye on them so they don’t dunk each other in the stock tank.”

  “Are you always the responsible one?”

  “Yep. I reckon it goes with the territory of bein’ the oldest.”

  “Isn’t just the providence of the oldest child to be forced into responsibility.” She sighed. “Don’t you ever want to…”

  He gave her a strange look. “What?”

  A smile bloomed on her face before it faded. “Never mind. Ky did a great job as ring bearer today.”

  “That he did, besides refusin’ to let go of Callie Morgan’s hand.”

  “Can’t say as I blame him. A cute girl who can rope and ride as well as he can?” Amy Jo’s trill of laughter was as sweet and fleeting as the evening breeze. “Poor boy is smitten.”

  “Seems to be an epidemic in the McKay family of late.” He glanced over to see his brother Colby and his wife Channing slow dancing, as well as the newlywed couple Carter and Macie entwined together, lost to everything but each other. A feeling close to jealousy tightened his stomach.

  Not jealousy. Just indigestion.

  Get a grip, McKay. This happily-ever-after wedding bullshit is addling your brain.

  During his silent bout of self-pity, Amy Jo glided in front of him. Right in front of him. Lord. She was nearly as tall as he was in those ridiculously sexy yellow high heels.

  “Why aren’t you smitten, Cord McKay?”

  Cord had nothing to say to that. He studied her, half-wary, half-curious about her intentions.

  “You could be smitten with me.” Keeping their gazes locked, she slowly angled forward and kissed him. Just a feather-light press of her soft mouth to his. As his lips were getting with the program, she withdrew slightly, letting their heated breath mingle for a second before she sank her teeth into his bottom lip. She gave a playful tug, followed by a thorough flick of her wet tongue to soothe the sting. “Because I’m definitely smitten with you.” She sauntered toward the tent in a cloud of chiffon and pure temptation.

  Cord remembered licking his lip, realizing she tasted as warm and sweet as autumn sunshine. He’d been too stunned to chase after her, chalking up the teasing kiss and challenging words to booze and the party atmosphere.

  He hadn’t thought about it again until now. As a matter of fact, he hadn’t seen Amy Jo since she’d moved to Denver last year to attend massage therapy school with his sister. His mother kept him updated on Keely’s exploits, which usually included tidbits on Amy Jo and her family.

Blog Tour – Hacker In Love by Lauren Rowe


Lauren Rowe

Release Date: May 5

Secrets. Everybody’s got ‘em, including me. Especially me.

The difference is mine will never be revealed, whereas I can easily get yours, assuming the price offered by your enemy is right and the scales of justice appeal to my personal standards of ethics. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. The thing that’s not so easy for a shy guy like me? Finding Ms. Right and locking her down.

Speaking of Ms. Right, the very night I was set up with Hannah Milliken by our mutual friend, I knew I’d one day kneel before her with a ring in hand. Hannah’s the kind of girl who’ll gleefully dance like a gorilla with me in the coolest nightclub or belt out a karaoke duet from Grease like her very life depends on it. She’s gorgeous, too. Funny and smart. And she even wears librarian glasses. See? Perfect.

I don’t doubt Hannah’s the one for me. Indubitably, she is. I only wonder how a dork like me could possibly land a goddess like her.

Unfortunately, when catastrophe strikes, all my questions are rendered moot. Now that Hannah knows the truth about me not actually working in cybersecurity—as well as the questionable things I’ve done to win her over—will I lose my dream girl forever, or is there still a chance for us to chase our happily ever after?

Hacker in Love is a steamy, funny, heart-pounding, standalone contemporary romance with a whole lot of feels, laughs, spice, and swoons by USA Today and internationally bestselling romance author Lauren Rowe.

KINGS OF CYPRESS POINTE crossover (no need to read that series first)


Everyone knows not to cross the campus d-bags. On or off the ice.

You don’t sneak into their house, thinking no one’s watching. You don’t ransack their bedrooms, tripping over hockey gear as you rummage through their things. And you definitely don’t get caught with your head under one’s bed and your size-sixteen backside pointed right at their camera.

Unless, of course… you’re me.

I was so desperate to get my hands on their brotherhood’s Book of Sins that I did all the above. I was in search of proof that could incriminate Tate, my soon-to-be stepbrother and former member of the frat. But not only do I come up empty, I’ve now unknowingly invited three shadows to darken my world.

The most broken and twisted of them all—Micah, Vince, and Ash.

They promise no one has to know I trespassed on their territory. My secret is safe with them, safe from the others, but there’s a cost.

Their silence for my freedom.

I’ll be theirs to control, to own—these sick devils with perfect smiles masking their cold hearts. And if I can’t find a way to beat them at their game… they’ll break my world and my soul into a million tiny pieces.

Blog Tour – Saving the Single Dad by Ashley Muñoz

“Be sure you’re ready to stay…once you step through that door, that’s it. You’re mine.”

Saving the Single Dad, an all-new heat-filled, single dad, small-town standalone romance in the Mount Macon Series from bestselling author Ashley Munoz is live now!

Being a nanny for three girls who belong to a grumpy boxing legend was not on my list of plans when I followed my brother to Macon, Oregon.

I went from ruling the boardroom to baking cupcakes in the blink of an eye. 

And aside from a few mishaps and seemingly always upsetting their dad, it oddly fits me better than anything else I’ve ever done.

Until Liam put everything into question. 

Bossy, broody, and rude, he’s twelve years older than me, and a force–An annoyingly overprotective wall of muscle and ink. 

But behind that perpetual scowl on his face was something deeper…worry and fear that no one saw him carry.

I wanted to help him.

But Liam Croft doesn’t want my help…

He just wants me.

I gave in to his touch, surrendered to our desire, and handed him my heart. 

It was reckless and maybe even a little stupid…Because I want to rescue Liam Croft…

Even if saving him means losing him.

About Kay Daniels Romance, Features, This and That

Sticks and Stones

How often in our lives are we told that words hurt?


How often do we hear that physical wounds mend, but emotional or mental wounds simply scab over only to reopen over and over again.

As a child I recall singing the rhyme, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” It’s a beautiful sentiment, one that was meant to teach us that while other children can be cruel to one another; such as fighting over your favorite swing on the playground, or fighting over your favorite toy, or any number of instances where children lose their tempers because they don’t yet have the skills to navigate how to express what they want. Instead children act out and resort to name calling whether it seems innocent like; “boogerface” or “doodyhead” or any name calling placeholder you’d like to insert, such words can follow a child and cause damage to their self-esteem for years. Back when I was growing up that rhyme was supposed to toughen up my walls so nothing could get through.

However, as adults we recognize, or should recognize, that words do hurt and in most instances words do more damage than sticks and stones.

I grew up in a small town where I was not only a rare redhead within my community, but I was the only redhead within my family. I was instantly put in a “unique” group and was ripe for bullying. However, my complete self-esteem crumble didn’t occur until after having my two children and my OB released me into the general world of regular doctors.

It was upon this first visit to a new doctor where I was told I was obese. Mind you, I am 5’8″, I’d just had my second child 23 months after my first one and I weighed in probably close to 200 pounds. In my head what I heard and saw in the mirror was someone who should be on My 600 pound life show.

“Obese”, but smiling. I was loving life before that dreaded word changed my life.

While I know I’d always had some problems with my image, thanks to my “uniqueness” it only got worse as I fell head long into full-time body dysmorphia as the years continued.

I left that doctor appointment, never went back to that particular doctor, but I did immediately start obsessing about my calorie intake vs. my energy output.

What did that involve? I became obsessed with every form of exercise that I came across in my path to lose this obesity label; aerobics, anaerobics, strength training, yoga, crossfit, pilates, walking, etc… Every moment of the day it consumed me; before work, during work, after work, before bedtime. I was squeezing in tricep curls, squats, you name it I did it, everywhere I could. On top of that I made sure every calorie that entered my mouth was burned off.

I got to the point where people began asking me if I was sick. I was appalled. Could they not see that I was obese and how dare someone think I was sick.

On the decline where my bones began to show and smiles were less, but I still didn’t realize what was happening

What’s worse, the BMI charts, those lovely wonderful, medical charts proved my sick mindset right. Because of the way I was living, I actually had very little fat on my body, even if I couldn’t see it. My BMI said I was still right on the edge of being obese. My weight, even at my thinnest hovered around 150. For my height and weight, which BMI charts don’t take into account low body fat and higher muscle weight, said I was still borderline. For the lifestyle I was living my body liked to sway between 150-160 pounds because it sometimes held water weight or it just wanted food. Maintaining the weight that was “healthy” was always tricky. I would freak out when it went up and I worked hard to drop it every single time.

My goal was to get below that 150 mark, but it always seemed impossible. That was until I ended up in the hospital. Never wish for something because you just might get it.

At my lowest weight and I still saw the girl in the top photo and constantly heard the dreaded “O” word.

I can’t blame my obsessive exercising and calorie deprivation alone on how I ended up with a week long hospital stay. There were a lot of factors involved. Stress is a huge one. Years, and I do mean years, of mistreating my body. Doctors who didn’t listen when I did try to voice my opinion. One doctor in particular who wasn’t careful with their words.

I’m not placing blame on anyone place or anyone person, but it does lead me back to my original statement, words are powerful. One word was all it took to send me off the deep end and send me spiraling into a lifetime of actions that now have had a huge outcome on how I will live the rest of my life.

It was one word by a supposed trusted medical professional that set me on that path and continued words by others as I sought guidance during that time (pre-hospital stay) that now mean I am on a new path. I am now very aware of how I was living my life. I no longer count every calorie that enters my body so that I can make sure to count it as it leaves before the day is over and so many other things.

It’s been five years since I dropped below 150 and it’s five years since my week long staycation at the hospital. I’m very close to reaching that dreaded “O” number that started me this dark path almost 23 years ago and it honestly terrifies me a little, but I also know the reality I almost didn’t leave my staycation five years ago, so life looks a little different than it did over twenty years ago.

Do I like looking in the mirror? No more than I did when I dropped below 150. My mind still sees the same image it always has.

This past Halloween and I’m up to 185. Go obesity 😉

What has changed? I no longer obsess and look at a BMI chart every other day. I also have a medical professional that doesn’t bring it up everytime I have a visit. My other doctors, because now I have many (overachiever that I am) that also listen when I talk and take my concerns into consideration. While I’m on medication that makes me gain weight, yuck, I know overall it’s better for my health.

I’ve done damage, I know it. I feel it the moment my stress level rises. It doesn’t mean I don’t still struggle with those feelings of wanting to fall back into old habits, I just want to appreciate my life and actually live it more. Love it as well.

Remember when you are out and about, people around you have feelings, they have emotions and words have weight. Use caution when saying or repeating something. Because sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can do irreparable damage.

My smile is back and it’s been 23 years since the dreaded “O” word.

Blog Tour – The Worst Wedding Date by Pippa Grant

Title: The Worst Wedding Date
Author: Pippa Grant
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Tropes: Best Friend’s Brother/Enemies to Lovers
Release Date: April 13, 2023
I didn’t know bridesmaid was code for babysitter for the bride’s brother, but if that’s what my best friend needs of me for her dream wedding to go off without a hitch, that’s what I’ll do.
Even if Theo Monroe has been a pain in my rear since third grade.
Even if he should be responsible enough to not wreak havoc at his sister’s destination wedding.
Even if it means we have to share a hotel room in Hawaii, which might be the final duty that breaks me.
Not only does Theo know exactly how to push my buttons, but he never wears clothes, he’s hiding a litter of kittens in his room, and he keeps showing up with fresh-baked cookies that seemingly come from nowhere.
I have no idea why he’s being such an utter ass to the groom.
Or why he’s so proud of the world’s most awkward wedding gift.
Or why I suddenly want to know what makes him tick. The story behind his tattoos. How he can afford to rent a convertible in Hawaii. And if maybe all of that utter frustration and irritation I’ve felt for him for years is suppressed attraction that a good girl like me isn’t supposed to feel for the biggest bad boy of Snaggletooth Creek.
But I do know one thing.
When I find out his biggest secret and the answer to all of my questions, it will change everything.
The Worst Wedding Date is a frolicking good time of a destination wedding enemies-to-lovers romcom, complete with a good girl bridesmaid, her best friend’s troublemaking but secretly big-hearted brother, and more than one hitch on the way to happily ever after. It stands alone, has no cheating, and comes complete with ooey gooey goodness.

About Defender

Travis Wyatt

All I’ve ever wanted was to go to college and get out of Kensley.That small town is all I’ve ever known. I want to be free to be myself, not stifled by small minds in the football-loving town where I grew up.

And then I blew my one and only chance.

So now, I’m just stuck. Stuck in small-town life, with the same small-town people I’ve always known. Stuck where I don’t want to be. Constantly on the defense and hiding secrets about myself. To never be the real me.

I’m lost, and I’m angry. But those people I was desperate to get away from, they don’t stop. They insist on showing me that maybe it’s not about my location.

That maybe I can be free right where I am.

Travis is way too uptight. I don’t know why. He has everything a guy could want—a steady job and friends who would do anything for him. A great simple, small-town life. But I guess that’s not what he wants.

He’s always been different. Better. Smarter. Stronger.

Still, I find myself wanting to show him everything he’s dreamed of is within his grasp. That he doesn’t have to be so serious all the time. That he can be himself wherever he is, and I’ll back him up.

Because that’s what I’m good at—on and off the field. I’ll always be his defender.

If he’d only let me.

Blog Tour – A Little Taste by Tia Louise

A Little Taste by Tia Louise is now live!


By Tia Louise
Aiden Stone is a six-foot-two former Marine with a permanent scowl, dark hair, and dreamy blue eyes.
He’s the oldest of the Stone brothers, and his “by the book” family has battled mine for control of our small town for generations.
The last thing I should do is sleep with him. Or nearly run him down with my truck. Especially since he’s sort-of my new boss
It doesn’t help that my grandmother (the mayor) is a former magician, and my mom is a psychic (sort-of)… And my dad died in a failed escape-artist attempt (that my mother is convinced was a murder).
Trust me, I know crazy, but I’m just plain ole Britt Bailey, Shania Twain-loving, non-magical forensic photographer. Yes, I take pictures of dead things, but I don’t see them in my bedroom at night.
I only want to see one thing in my bedroom at night, and when I’m called home to help Sheriff Stone on an investigation, he actually stops frowning for a minute, and my teenage fantasies get very real.
It’s a terrible idea. We work together, he’s seven years older than me, he’s a single dad, he hates all things magic, but a little taste, and we can’t say no.
Until the town crime wave turns personal, putting everything on the line, and we’ll need more than a magic bullet to get our happily ever after.
(A LITTLE TASTE is a small-town, grumpy single-dad romance with a touch of light suspense and lots of tasty spice. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)
