Seaside Lovers review and giveaway #review #giveaway #book #romance

Another amazing Melissa Foster book! Yay! I was so excited to read it because I have fallen in love with all Melissa Foster books. Her writing style draws you in and makes it feel so realistic and like you are part of the story. So really does her homework when she writes these books.

Seaside Lovers was a fun book that kept you interested from the first page. Grayson and Parker have the sweetest love story! I love how sweet and caring Grayson is and how much he takes care of Parker. They are so magnetic and just drawn to each other. They are each other's ying and yang.

Parker has been on her own and taking care of herself forever but dreams of a normal life with a family and friends even though she has it all; money, fame and living a dream life. Grayson just fits into her life like a missing piece of a puzzle she didn't know was missing. She had a tough life but now she is a famous actress and has everything except what she really wants.

Grayson is that dream guy that a lot of girls long for. He is sexy, hard worker, family man, and listens to every detail so he can give Parker everything she ever wants. I couldn't get enough and even when I was finished with the book I wanted more! Definitely a amazing book and I definitely recommend it to anyone who loves romance books.


SEASIDE SUMMERS
Voted Beck Valley Books Reviewers Favorite Mini Series from the Love in Bloom Series in 2014
Featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They're funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.

SEASIDE LOVERS 
After months of long-distance communication, actress Parker Collins and artist Grayson Lacroux finally plan to reconnect in the seaside town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. But Parker never shows, and weeks pass without a word, leaving Grayson to believe he's misinterpreted their budding relationship.

Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she's ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she's prepared to hole up and mourn--and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn't count on the sinfully hot artist she's been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.

When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the heat sizzling between them. But that doesn't stop him from feeling protective of the woman who's consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker's plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker's past unfolds, they're led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens, and late-night fantasies become passionate realities, until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they've found.

SEASIDE LOVERS is part of the SEASIDE SUMMERS series, and part of the "Love in Bloom" family. Each book may be read as a stand-alone novel, or as part of the series.

Once and Future Wife review and giveaway #review #giveaway #book #romance

  I have another awesome romance book recommendation for you. As you know by now I am addicted to romance books and read 2-3 a week. I mean when I get the chance to relax and read it is my me time and helps me wind down after a long day of taking care of 6 kids lol.

  So back to the book it's called Once and Future Wife. It drew me in by the first chapter. I didn't read the first book in the series but I felt I didn't lose anything by not reading it because this one kind of recaps what happened. This isn't your typical romance book though, it deals with mental illness called bipolar and the struggles dealing with it and how it can tear a family apart. This was such a emotional book!

My synopsis of the book:
  Jennie is a mom who went years without being diagnosed with a mental illness. Her illness made her run from her husband and two young daughters who she loved so much. Me being a Psychology major I was a little more critical and was diagnosing her throughout the book. Bipolar disorder is a horrible disease that torments its victims and David did a really good job accurately displaying this disease in Jennie. I was surprised! I fell in love with Jennie and I wanted to help her throughout the story. She had a tough life but she loved her family more than anything else.

  Thomas suffered a lot when Jennie left him with two young daughters years earlier without a reason why. It took him years to get over her, well move on from her. Then to have tragedy strike again and take his current wife. I felt his pain and suffering. Left with 4 grown daughters and a newborn he had to believe in love, fate and learn to forgive. Jennie and Thomas have a roller coaster love story but it is one you don't want to miss. I love how true love and communication conquers all. Such a emotional book but I loved it! I definitely recommend it! Get it today at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and more!



Jennie Bateman has again fallen in love with Thomas, her former husband, but Tasha, one of his children, is determined to destroy their relationship.

Jennie had done that herself a number of years earlier. In the midst of a manic episode, she had deserted Thomas and their two daughters, choosing, instead, a life of shameless debauchery.

Perhaps she was shocked when Thomas filed for a divorce. Perhaps it was the influence of a preacher who took an interest in her. Perhaps she simply cycled back toward normal.

Whatever the cause, years later, when she again made contact with her family, she was a different person. Even so, they wanted nothing to do with her.

But time moves on. Circumstances change.

Jennie has been accepted by her children. Thomas’s second wife has died, leaving him a single parent with four adult daughters and a newborn. In Jennie’s eyes, he is the same good-looking, kind, loving person she had fallen for when they were in college.

While Jennie has fallen in love with Thomas, he has no interest in romance. He is still mourning the loss of his second wife, he is caring for their infant daughter, and he still nurses the hurt he felt when Jennie abandoned him so many years before. He does not want her around his children, and he is determined to shelter his infant daughter from her.

As time passes, though, he finds himself attracted to Jennie again, discovering she now resembles the girl with whom he once fell in love, rather the shrew who once walked out of his life.

Tasha knows of Jennie’s earlier life and she has discovered that she still takes medication to control her behavior.

“Are these your crazy pills?” Tasha mocks her as she snatches the bottle from Jennie’s hand. “If I flush them, will you be crazy in the morning? Only a weakling depends on medicine,” she asserts.

She insists that whether Jennie takes the medication or not, she will ultimately relapse, that another manic episode lies ahead, perhaps just around the bend. She taunts Jennie by printing documents from the internet to support her claim. She reminds Jennie that if she were to relapse after marrying Thomas, she would ruin his life – a second time.

Shamed by Tasha, Jennie ponders tossing her medication, hoping to prove to both of them that she can live without it. As she considers what to do, she fears that she will fail the test, be unable to cope, and her demons– anger, alcohol, and sex − will come rushing back to thwart her chance for a second marriage just as they destroyed her first.

Thomas would not try to cope with those demons again, would he? She couldn’t ask that of him, could she?

In Once and Future Wife we follow Jennie as she goes a second round with her demons, hoping to find a way to stop them from destroying the love and happiness that finally seem to be within her reach.

Once and Future Wife is a stand alone sequel to Those Children Are Ours. The first book does not have a cliff hanger of any kind at the end.  Once and Future Wife picks up with Jennie four years later and can be read apart from the other book.


Available to buy from....


Also Available - Those Children Are Ours
Jennie Bateman screamed at her daughters, cursed at her husband, packed a bag, and walked away. Twelve years later, she petitions the family court for visitation with her daughters, Alexis and Christa.

Her attorney tells Jennie that, ordinarily, she could not imagine that some type of visitation would not be granted. But, she warns, the situation is hardly ordinary. True, Jennie suffered from a bipolar disorder when she began to drink heavily, abandoned her family, and moved in with another man. True, she has turned her life around: leaving her boyfriend, returning to school, entering therapy, taking medication, finding a job, and joining a church.

But she pressed no claim for her children when her husband divorced her, and she has made no attempt to contact them in any way since then. Her daughters, now sixteen and fourteen, live four hundred miles away. They have busy lives that do not include her, lives that will be totally disrupted by the visitation that she requests. Their father is engaged to be married to a woman who has taken the role of their mother for a decade. Alexis remembers nothing good about Jennie. Christa recalls nothing at all.

Conflict ensues as soon as Jennie’s petition is served: her former husband does not want to share his children with the woman who deserted him; her children have no interest in knowing the mother who abandoned them, and her father insists that she is being timid and ought to demand full custody, not simply visitation.

As court convenes, Jennie’s past is dredged up− the desertion, the men, her drinking, her mental health − and paraded before the judge. Her claim to be a different person, now, is attacked. The judge hesitates to grant Jennie’s request, but reluctantly agrees to order three trial visits.

If persuading the judge to let her see her children was difficult, convincing them to allow her to be a part of their lives seems to be almost impossible. What happens as she finally begins to connect with her daughters places them all in grave danger and threatens her life, itself.

Family Fun in Utah at the Tracy Aviary & Giveaway of family 4 pack #review #giveaway #Utah #familyfun

We are always looking for fun inexpensive things to do in Utah as a family. We visit parks, splash pads, libraries, museums, and much more. So when I got the chance to check out Tracy Aviary I was so excited. I love birds and always have since I was little. So I couldn't wait to so my kids all the beautiful birds.
This is a gorgeous bird aviary in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is all outdoors but there was a lot of shaded areas. This place has so many different birds or all sizes, colors, and ages from all over the world. Some of our favorite parts were feeding the Sun Conures and the bird show. My kids had never feed birds before so this was a blast. We got to go inside the cage and each hold a cup of berries and granola and the birds come and sit on your hand and eat it. The Green Magpie was so much fun as we fed the conures he was attracted to my daughters bow and shiny sandals and kept sitting on her foot. I definitely recommend feeding the birds when you go.
The bird show they introduce a few birds as they swoop down over your heads and your have birds walked right next to you. People can also volunteer to come up and be part of the show. This was so much fun. It is about 30 minute or more show but definitely worth seeing especially outside. You will learn so much about these amazing birds and the kids will love seeing them up close.
The park is a decent size and takes a few hours to see it all. There was a brand new rainforest exhibit put in just a few months ago and you go inside and see different birds that would live in the rain forest as well as learn stuff about them with some hands on interactive information boards. Such a cool exhibit. It is very humid in it and it is 80s all year round in it.
So if you are looking for something fun to do this summer with your family and you live near the Salt Lake area you have to check out The Tracy Aviary. It is only $5 for kids $10 for adults and if you have Pass of all passes Tuesdays are only $1 for all members. Also check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
I am giving away a Family 4 Pack of passes for one lucky family to visit this awesome park. Just Enter Below!

Bad Boys After Dark: Mick #review #book #preorder

 Another amazing book by Melissa Foster. I think she is becoming one of my favorite writers. I just love her style of writing. I never get bored and I am always hooked by the first page because she is that good. This book didn't disappoint. I loved it and I fell in love with Mick and Amanda. Bad boy and the good girl get together and it is just amazing fireworks and passion. It is HOTT!

 Mick and Amanda's love is meant be. They fought it for years and tried to keep things professional but fate has other plans. Amanda is sick of professional boring men who talk about themselves like its a turn on. She wants to seduce the wild , fun, naughty boy and she bought a book to teach her how.

 Mick is a man that had to grow up fast after losing his sister and his family falling apart. He was the man of the house and took care of everyone else. He didn't believe in forever love or happily ever after because it all ends painfully anyways. I just love how Mick was Amanda's wild side and helped her learn how to get the man of her dreams. Little did he know he was that man and helped him see good in love again. I loved how they bettered each other and fit together like puzzle pieces. Such an incredible story I couldn't put it down! Who doesn't want a perfect person to be their rock and give them everything their heart never knew it wanted? Definitely a must read book!
RELEASING JUNE 22ND........
Bad Boys After Dark: Mick

Indulge your inner vixen...

You asked for naughtier lovers, with the same fierce loyalty as The Bradens - Meet the Bad Boys... Four sinfully sexy, uber alpha brothers, about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies. .

Everything's naughtier after dark...
Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she’s researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She’s waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action—and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party. 

Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn’t do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.

Amanda thinks she’s hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man—until she discovers the man she’s made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick’s already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction—no strings, no regrets, and for goodness’ sake, come Monday, no quitting—the tables turn, and Mick’s totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.

The Bad Boys are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

Touched by Love Book Tour and #review #book #giveaway


I must admit I am a romance book addict lol. I never thought that would be me but here I am reading 3 or more books a week hehe. So when I got the chance to read Touched by Love by Melissa Foster I couldn't wait! I have read a few of her books and loved every one. Her writing is so smooth, catchy and good. I can never put her books down.

Boyd and Janie's love story has its ups and downs but they communicate and love each other above all even with their flaws. Janie may be blind but can see more than most others can see. Boyd is a tough, sexy, fireman, paramedic, and pre-med guy who is full of internal scars along with the physical ones. It takes the both of them together to realize how much they need dependence on each other even if they are completely independent in life. I love their romance and the sexy steamy parts. They are the best kind of lovers. True love conquers all obstacles and this story proves that! I am in love with Melissa Foster's books. Now I have to buy more. I'm addicted! Check out this awesome book!

More About the Book:

NEW RELEASE........
Touched by Love, The Remingtons #6, Love in Bloom

Fiercely independent Janie Jansen has always believed there were worse things in life than being blind, and she's spent her life proving it. She's moved away from her overprotective parents, built a life in New York City, and is one of the top technical editors in her company. That is, until an unfortunate accident turns her life upside down and she's forced to give up the very independence she's worked so hard to achieve.

Firefighter Boyd Hudson pushed past his tragic past and is weeks away from accomplishing his ultimate dream―being accepted into medical school. His intense focus on his goal while working three jobs has taken its toll. With a trail of failed relationships behind him, Boyd is painstakingly aware of his limitations and avoids girlfriends completely―a difficult task given his attraction to one of his co-workers.

When Boyd comes to Janie's rescue, she's forced to accept his help, and Janie discovers there's more to the sexy-sounding office flirt than one-liners. Their connection deepens as Janie heals, but it turns out that Janie isn't the only one who needs healing. Boyd's painful past comes back to haunt him, threatening their relationship and forcing Boyd to reevaluate everything he knows about himself.

*** THE REMINGTONS are part of the LOVE IN BLOOM series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. This 6-book hot contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women’s fiction.
