The owner started hitting my uncle Rod with a bat and my father pulled out a knife to scare off the owner. The police arrived around the same time and the female officer yelled “Drop your weapon”, my father did not drop it so she shot him three times in the stomach. My father died at the hospital.

Get To Know The Author :
What inspired you to write this book?
Watching my daughter grow up and many other young ladies and women encounter some of the same situations I had been through and I thought why not share my experiences and mistakes to hopefully help someone else understand they are not alone in this and maybe help avoid or find comfort in knowing they too can overcome.
How long did it take to complete your book?
about 2yrs.
What has been your best experience since publishing your book?
Receiving the feedback and feeling like I was able to reach someone that could actually relate.
What is your favorite motivational phrase?
I like to tell people to “strive to be better than  you were yesterday” and if I am having a bad day I tell myself “This too shall pass”
What is your favorite movie and why?
I have two actually “Point of Know Return” its an old movie but I loved it because it took a woman who was down and out and made her over to become a strong beautiful woman who could kick A**. and my other is “Love and Basketball” because I love romance, and I am mushy like that “Double or nothing” (tear).
What do you do on your free time?
Mommy duties take up most of my free time but if I get away I may catch a movie or go to the comedy house for a good laugh or two.
Where there any doubt in releasing your book?
Yes I was scared about being judged for some of the decisions I had made, But I prayed about it and I had to let that go and say it’s not for me it’s for somebody else that is right at that breaking point and to help them see “This too shall pass”.
Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers?
I want to say “Thank You” to all that have been there for me when I was going through some of the most challenging moments in my life. To anyone that is or have read my book “Thank You” for supporting me in my journey to help bring change and togetherness to us all. Our differences make us unique, and our journey helps to tell our story to inspire, encourage, and motivate.

Author Lilliana Anderson shares Fools Rush In

Title: Fools Rush In
Series: A Cartwright Brother Romance
Author: Lilliana Anderson
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release: April 30, 2018

I was a good girl. But I wanted him, knowing he was a thief. Did that make me bad?

Before Sam, I was the most boring, awkward and level-headed person you’d ever met. I was my best friend’s side-kick, the supporting actress to another person’s life.

And I was OK like that.

I was lonely.

But I was OK.

Then he came along. Our eyes locked and BANG my heart started beating. As my blood warmed and pumped around my body, everything changed. Before that moment, I had been as dead inside
as my mortuary ‘clients’.

Now I was alive, experiencing things for the first time, enamoured with a man I knew to be a criminal.

Instead of running and remaining the good Christian girl I was, I married him.
Now, I had to live with the consequences of that decision.

Book Review: Perfectly Misunderstood by Robin Daniels

Title: Perfectly Misunderstood

Author: Robin Daniels

Publication Date: April 4, 2018

Rating: 3 Stars=Okay Page Turner

Purchase at Amazon.com 

In Perfectly Misunderstood, Jayden Valdez is a teenager who takes pride in making good grades. She doesn’t want to disappoint her parents. When she finds out her grade in Spanish is down her teacher gives her a solution. Jayden will need to get tutoring, which she is fine with until her tutor’s identity is revealed.

Mike Thompson is intelligent but likes being the class clown. He has everyone at his school believing he is dumb. He is responsible and takes care of his siblings after school to help his mother out. He lives a separate life that many of his friends no nothing about. When his coach ask him to tutor a student he agrees until the student’s identity is revealed.

Perfectly Misunderstood is a typical young adult story where the boy meets the girl, introduces her to his home life, girls starts sharing more of her and both ignore the growing attractions that is very noticeable. It was a cute story with humorous banter between Mike and Jayden’s characters. I didn’t care for the way Mike’s siblings talked to and teased him about having a different father and him not being Hispanic. This turned me off a little even though I learned more about his character, having read previous books in this series.

Overall, I enjoyed it and recommend it to other young adult readers.

Sneak Peek of Can’t Stand The Heat by PeggyJaeger

Can’t Stand the Heat
Will Cook For Love #3
by Peggy Jaeger
Genre: Contemporary Romance
In Peggy Jaeger’s delectable series, delicious food is just an appetizer for life’s main course: the kind of love that feeds your
soul.
With three successful TV series under her belt, including her cousin Kandy’s, executive producer Stacy Peters is ready to helm her own show. But to make that happen, she has to do her network boss one favor first—spend two months on a ranch in Montana wrangling the notoriously difficult director of Beef Battles. Apparently, he eats producers for breakfast. Yet all Stacy can think when she meets the lean, rugged man is how hungry he makes her . . .
Dominic Stamp—Nikko to his very few friends—has had enough interference
from TV newbies. And when Stacy climbs out of the car in Montana, he’s not convinced she’s even old enough to drive, much less produce his show. But he can’t deny that the long-legged blonde with the stubborn will and the dazzling smile whets his appetite. And as Stacy proves her talent with the crew and the budget alike, Nikko
vows to prove to her that love is on the menu for both of them . . .

Excerpt

“I wish you’d do that more often,” he said, his hand circling her upper arm as he turned her, slowly, back to face him.

“What? Leave?”

He stared at her a beat, the line between his brows deepening. “Smile.”
Flabbergasted, she stood, rooted.

“More specifically,” he added, “smile at me. You do at everyone else. From Dixon, to his son; the crew. Even Melora. Everyone, but me.”

“I—”

His grip tightened a little as he pulled her in closer, their torsos almost touching.

“Why? Why can you show everyone else that little piece of yourself, but not me?”

“I…I don’t know how to answer that,” she said. “I know I was thrust on you without you wanting me here. I know you don’t like me, I—“

“That’s not true. I didn’t want to like you,” he admitted. “There’s a difference. You’re a producer. A bottom line watcher. An annoying necessity. Liking you goes against the grain.”

At that she did smile, because she knew it was true.

“See now,” he said, as he slid his other hand up her arm to settle on the back of her neck, fingers curling up into her hair to hold on. “When you do that? When you smile at me like that, so openly, so…freely? I can’t think about anything else.”
A gentle tug and he had her head pillowed in his spread palms as he bent his own down to hers.

Through her glasses she watched the fine whiskey in his eyes blend with the ink of his pupils as they dilated.
“I haven’t been able to think clearly about anything for the past few days.” His mouth was a whisper from hers. His gaze skimmed from her eyes to her mouth and back again in one slow string of heat. “Except for this.”

She thought she’d be prepared for the feel of his lips on hers again. After all, she’d done little else but reminisce about their texture and taste for days. But she was wrong.

So wrong.

Nothing could have ever prepared her for the way the slight pressure he placed on the back of her neck as he brought her closer sent a shiver of such carnal delight down her spine she almost hummed. Or the way his breath, warm and full, felt as it washed over her cheeks. And she certainly wasn’t prepared for the onslaught of emotions he released within her when he quite expertly parted her lips and deepened the kiss, pulling at her very soul.

No, nothing in her life had equipped her with how to deal with Nikko Stamp’s kiss.
So she simply let go of all thought, fear, and concern, and surrendered to it.
