Driven to (sexy) distraction... 


Cher Debusshere hates being the black sheep of her posh, well-to-do family almost as much as she hates driving-which is exactly what she's forced to do when her flight home for her perfect sister's wedding is grounded. Fan-freakin'-tastic. Then a hot guy offers to share both the car rental and the driving duties...only to drive her crazy by assuming she's just some spoiled little rich girl.

Mechanic Nathaniel "Oz" Oserkowski is about as blue-collar as they come. There's never been a time he hasn't worked his ass off, and he's determined to prove it to the gorgeous princess in the passenger seat. As the miles pass, they bait and needle each other...until their lust and longing gets so hot it nearly overheats the engine. 

They have nothing in common. Hell, they can barely stand each other. But sometimes it takes a journey to change the destination...

Enjoy the review! 



Arrows by Melissa Gorzelanczyk 
Publisher: Delacorte Press 
Release Date: January 26th 2016 
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Fantasy, Mythology, Retellings, Romance


A modern cupid story set in present-day Wisconsin combining the fantastical elements of Greek mythology with the contemporary drama of MTV's Teen Mom.

People don’t understand love. If they did, they’d get why dance prodigy Karma Clark just can’t say goodbye to her boyfriend, Danny. No matter what he says or does or how he hurts her, she can’t stay angry with him . . . and can’t stop loving him. But there’s a reason why Karma is helpless to break things off: she’s been shot with a love arrow. 
Aaryn, son of Cupid, was supposed to shoot both Karma and Danny but found out too late that the other arrow in his pack was useless. And with that, Karma’s life changed forever. One pregnancy confirmed. One ballet scholarship lost. And dream after dream tossed to the wind.

A clueless Karma doesn’t know that her toxic relationship is Aaryn’s fault . . . but he’s going to get a chance to make things right. He’s here to convince Danny to man up and be there for Karma. But what if this god from Mount Olympus finds himself falling in love with a beautiful dancer from Wisconsin who can never love him in return?

This fast-paced debut novel explores the internal & external conflicts of a girl who finds herself inexplicably drawn to a boy who seemingly doesn't reciprocate her  feelings, touching on the issues of love, sex and responsibility, with a heroine struggling to control her destiny--perfect for fans of Katie McGarry's novels and MTV’s 16 and Pregnant.

Arrows combines three of my favorite types of genres in YA fiction, Mythology, retellings, and romance. This fun and unique take on the classic Cupid story set in present-day, was not only magical but EPIC in every way. A breath of fresh air, author Melissa Gorzelanczyk writes from the heart and gives her readers a story they  won't soon forget! 

Son of the legendary Cupid, Aaryn is in-training to be a "cupid" just like his Dad. Love is never easy to find and Aaryn is destined to help lonely souls on earth find their true love with just a prick of an arrow. Aaryn is about to graduate but need to find one last couple to bring together but notices too late that there is only one arrow left in his bag. In a hurry, he decides to only shoot a girl named Karma with his last arrow, leaving the Danny untouched. Thus hoping it will be enough to spout true love between the two.

Now a full-fledged Cupid, Aaryn tried to forget about that night and move on to helping others in need, but the past is about to catch up with him. Cupid, Aaryn Dad finally learns the truth and forces his son to return to earth as a human to right the wrong he made a year ago. He learns that Karma had gotten pregnant and now has a baby named Nell. Her dreams of being a professional ballet dancer are now on pause but would have been a real if not for being a teen Mom. While Karma is hopelessly in love with Danny, Danny is far from settling down with a family and marriage. It's Aaryn job to help Danny fall in love and marry Karma, to set his wrong right and return to being a God. 

As Aaryn tries to pick up the pieces of his mistake, he begins to have feelings for Karma. Feelings he knows he should never have for a human and ones that could get him into a lot of trouble. 

Will Aaryn be able to bring Danny and Karma together or will love find its own way, to someone else's heart? Find out by reading ARROWS! 

{ Warning: slight spoilers below }


Appropriately the word I use to describe my feeling for this book is:
LOVE

I loved this retelling of Cupid. 
I loved Aaryn. I loved Karma. I loved hated Danny.
I loved the setting. I loved Nell. (she is such a cutie)
I loved how broken Karma was and how I could feel her sadness through the authors words. I loved how much Aaryn cared so deeply for Karma, more than Danny ever would or could. 
I loved seeing the slow burn of romance bloom between Karma and Aaryn. And I loved more than anything, that in the end true LOVE conquers all, no arrows needed.


If I could give ARROWS more than 5 stars I would, in a heartbeat. 
 I give mad props to author Melissa Gorzelanczyk for writing such a heartbreakingly beautiful retelling of Cupid. immensely enjoyed reading this novel. I highly recommend it to everyone, especially those who adore mythology, retellings, and romance in YA fiction. You're going to LOVE to love this book!

Totally EPIC! One of the best books I have read. A MUST read!!

Blog Tour: Ascenders: High School for the Recently Departed by C.L. Gaber + Giveaway!

Welcome to the blog tour for Ascenders: High School for the Recently Departed by C.L. Gaber!
Today is my stop on the tour and I have for you all a great promo post and giveaway. Enjoy!



Ascenders: High School for the Recently Departed
by C.L. Gaber
Release Date: April 20th 2015

Genre: YA > Paranormal Romance


Walker Callaghan doesn't know what happened to her. One minute she was living her teenage life in suburban Chicago...and the next minute, she was in a strange place and in a brand new school with absolutely no homework, no rules, and no consequences. 

Walker Callaghan, 17, is dead.

She doesn't go to heaven or hell. She lands at The Academy, a middle realm where teenagers have one thing in common: They were the morning announcement at their high schools because they died young.

These high school kids are now caught in a strange “in-between” zone where life hasn’t changed very much. In fact, this special teen limbo looks a lot like life in a quaint Michigan town complete with jocks, popular girls and cliques. "There are even cheerleaders in death," Walker observes. It's not a coincidence that the music teacher is a guy named Kurt who "used to have this band." The drama teacher, Heath, is crush worthy because back in his life, he starred in some superhero movie.

Principal King explains the rules -- there are none. Why? You can't die twice.

There is no homework.
No tests.
No SATS.
You're just there to learn because the human brain isn't fully formed until you're 24.

By the way, you can't get hurt physically, so race your Harley off that hillside. But falling in love is the most dangerous thing you can do ...because no one knows how long you'll stay in this realm or what's next.

"Losing someone you love would be like dying twice," Walker says.

* * * * * *

Walker Callaghan has just arrived at the Academy after a tragic car accident. “Is this heaven or is this high school?” she asks.

She finds out her new life is a bit of both as she falls in love with tat-covered, bad boy Daniel Reid who is about to break the only sacred rule of this place. He's looking for a portal to return back to the living realm.

He needs just one hour to retrieve his younger brother who strangely never arrived at The Academy. Bobby is an Earth Bound Spirit, stuck at a plane crash site that took both of their lives as their rich father piloted his private jet nose-first into a cornfield on Christmas Eve.

Walker loves Daniel and risks it all to go with him.

Have they learned enough to outsmart dangerous forces while transporting a young child with them? Can their love survive the fragmented evil parts of themselves that are now hunting them down as they try to find a way back to the middle?

At the Academy, you learn the lessons of an after-lifetime.
