“Do I know you?” Jax asked, stumbling back and forth.
“We have like four classes together…and I’m pretty sure you and my sister had a thing freshman year,” I replied, positive he couldn’t have been drunk enough to forget I even existed…or could he?
“Oh.” He raised his eyebrows animatedly, his blue eyes twinkling. “Satan, right?”
“Excuse me?” I asked, shocked by his question.
“Your name—or at least that’s what your sister used to call you…” His lips curled up into an evil smile.
I let go of his arm, but stood my ground. “Why are you being like this? You invited me,” I whispered, looking down, my face burning up.
Jax obviously did not get the memo that we were being discreet, because his volume only seemed to increase, catching more attention than I would have liked. “I invited you? In what world?” He cackled like an evil villain and then turned his back to me, filling his cup up with beer.
My cheeks were growing redder by the minute, a combination of embarrassment and pure rage. He was the only reason I had even agreed to come. I knew I was an outsider; that I didn’t fit in with his crowd—but he was the one who convinced me that everything was going to be alright. “You’re seriously going to sit there and pretend like you didn’t invite me to this party twice?” It was hard not to be fuming.
He turned around slowly this time, sipping on his beer, a calculated look playing across his eyes. “Well you obviously can’t take a hint…I’m going to give you the best advice of your life…are you ready? Lay off the cupcakes fatty! I can get any girl in here, what would I want with a pig like you?”
I looked around and realized all eyes were on us; more importantly, me. Jax had just given them the reality TV bit they craved for the night. Tears were beginning to form at the corners of my eyes and I knew I didn’t have much time before the waterworks. “Peyton…” I heard my friends call after me. But it was drowned out by the noise of laughter. Jax was laughing hysterically at what he had just said to me, and the worst part about it? Everyone had joined in. Now all I heard as I ran and pushed my way through the crowd was oinks and laughs.

Lost To Me
Release Date: 08/19/14

Summary from Goodreads:
Lauren Kelling’s prom night is a memory she’ll never forget—in her nightmares. She had the dress, the hair, and romantic first time plans with her boyfriend, Kolton Seidel. But what should have been the best night of her life bleeds into terror when she’s brutally attacked.

Now, Lauren relives the events leading up to prom, unraveling the clues that should have warned her of the trauma to come. Like Kolton ’s malicious ex-girlfriend, who’ll do anything to rip them apart. Or Kolton’s mentally unstable brother.

After the tragedy, Lauren wants to hide, disfigured inside and out, while Kolton drowns in a sea of guilt. Only together can the two of them lay rest to the past and heal each other, through a love too strong to break.

We sat, breathing in unison, recovering from our near drowning in each other, something he wasn’t trained to save us from. I knew in that instant that I wouldn’t want to be saved from it.The thought of leaving him sent a wave of sadness through me. I blinked double time to hold back tears, but one escaped and landed on Kolton’s arm.“Lauren? What’s wrong? Did I upset you?” He cupped my face with his hands, his eyebrows knit with concern as his blue eyes probed mine for answers.“I’ll have to leave in a few days,” I said, choking on the words, feeling foolish.He lowered my head to his shoulder. “It’s okay. You don’t live far. I’ll come visit, and you’ll come here. You have a house here. I’m pretty sure you’ll be back.” He squeezed my shoulders. “We’ll make it work. I promise.”I felt stupid for crying. “I bet you say that to all the girls when they go home from vacation.” I wiped my eyes and realized he was shaking his head.“I’m not like that, Lauren.” He took my hand and kissed it. “I don’t want to lose you. I won’t lose you again.” His face was so sincere, like an innocent little boy, the boy he used to be. “Okay?”I nodded and a few more tears slid down my face.“Stop.” He wiped the tears with the tips of his fingers. “Your mom probably thinks I’ve abducted you.”

Release Date:
GAME OF THRONES meets GRACELING in a new fantasy series by bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis.

Jinji has been haunted by the death of her twin brother for ten years. Now, on the dawn of her joining, the nightmare that claimed him has returned for her.

Prince Whylrhen is determined to prevent the past from repeating itself. His kingdom is expecting a new heir, and he will stop at nothing to keep the child safe.

Though they've never met, the two share a deep secret—magic. Jinji can weave the elements to create master illusions and Whylrhen can pull burning flames into his flesh. But neither of them knows what they are truly capable of until a chance encounter brings them together. For their story has played out before, in a long forgotten time—an age of myth that is about to be reborn…

"The writing is flawless. The story and plot line, and plot twists, had me captivated and enamored for the first words. I couldn't put this book down for anything, and I absolutely cannot wait for book two...It's an amazing start to a new series that is going to have people of all ages wanting so much more." - Happy Tails and Tales

"One word to describe this book: intense!  Everything from the battles, to the secrets, to the descriptions of the characters and scenery, are all incredibly intense.  This book had me biting my nails, stomach tided in knots, and completely entranced til the last word." - Desert Rose Reviews

"Throughout the story, the stakes were always raised. There was no part that lagged while Davis was telling her story of far off lands, and the drama continued to the very end...To those readers who like fantasy and adventure, or to those who tried to read "A Song of Ice and Fire" but couldn't make it through the first chapter without falling asleep - this could be a series for you." - Pink Fluffy Hearts

"The Shadow Soul was positively transportive, left me feeling refreshed, and renewed my faith in symbolism, imagery, and the importance of world building and cultural preservation...If you want to set out on a journey, read this." - We Do Write

"I loved this book! I was drawn into the story with the fantastic and descriptive storytelling told alternatively between Rhen and Jinji!... The political pickings, magical murderers, and shadowy suspense are the real plot stars in this book and the wonderful characterization and world-building adds extra oomph to grab you and keep you in this world." - EBook Escapes

About the Author
I've always been a writer. I grew up duct taping my novels together, started writing complete manuscripts in high school and studied creative writing at Johns Hopkins University. Upon graduating, I decided it was finally time to actually give my dream career a chance. So, of course, I started writing a young adult paranormal romance series -- and no, I'm not jumping on the bandwagon. I've been a true paranormal supporter for my entire life! I blame my obsession almost completely on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, my all-time favorite television show. And, before you ask: Yes, I own every season... even the post WB ones! I especially challenge anyone to watch the first three seasons and not fall in love with Angel, securing a lifelong love of vampires! Other culprits of my paranormal obsession are some of my favorite authors: JK Rowling, Raymond Feist, Meg Cabot, Richelle Mead, Lynne Ewing and Tamora Pierce.

¡Chicos de ensueño!

Dream Boy by Madelyn Rosenberg and Mary CrockettRelease Date: 07/01/14
Sourcebooks Fire 

Summary from Goodreads:

Annabelle Manning feels like she’s doing time at her high school in Chilton, Virginia. She has her friends at her lunchtime table of nobodies. What she doesn’t have are possibilities. Or a date for Homecoming. Things get more interesting at night, when she spends time with the boy of her dreams. But the blue-eyed boy with the fairytale smile is just that—a dream. Until the Friday afternoon he walks into her chemistry class.

One of friends suspects he’s an alien. Another is pretty sure it’s all one big case of deja vu. While Annabelle doesn’t know what to think, she’s willing to believe that the charming Martin Zirkle may just be her dream come true. But as Annabelle discovers the truth behind dreams—where they come from and what they mean—she is forced to face a dark reality she had not expected. More than just Martin has arrived in Chilton. As Annabelle learns, if dreams can come true, so can nightmares.

Amazon * Barnes & Noble * Kobo Books * The Book Depository

Advanced Praise:
“Dream Boy explores the mysterious world of dreams, where we access our deepest desires…the authors expertly weave fantasy and the real world in a perfect blend.”
-- Erica Orloff, author of In Dreams

"Eerie, twisty, fast and funny, Dream Boy will forever change the way you see your dreams--and your nightmares. An exciting, imaginative look at what might happen when people from the corners of your mind suddenly show up in your real life."
-- Lois Metzger, author of A Trick of the Light

“The perfect book to add to your summer reading list. An awesome balance of love, humor and action, this new read may just be your dream come true!” – GirlsLife

"Hits the chick-lit and romance buttons, adding suspense and an intriguing idea as well for nicely rounded entertainment." -- Kirkus Review

"An original, twisty paranormal romance." -- Booklist

“Five stars... Perfect writing, perfect characters … perfect plot.” -- Paperback Wonderland

“Dream Boy skillfully and creatively tackles the common theme of good and bad dreams coming alive.... The writing is tight and well-paced, and nicely balances action with Annabelle’s character development as she tries to unravel the mysteries of... her dreams. Her teenage voice is spot on: unsure of herself, but spirited, with a sarcasm that masquerades as confidence. The plot twists and moves in unexpected yet fascinating directions." -- The Roanoke Times


I’ve always been a dreamer. Daydreams. Night dreams. Dreams of grandeur and dreams of escape. If I were an onion and you peeled back the papery outside, you’d find layer after layer of eye-watering dreams. And in the center, where there’s that little curlicue of onion heart? There’d be a puff of smoke from the dreams that burned away. It was all just brain waves, I thought—disconnected, like the notebook that my friend Talon keeps. She draws a line down the middle of the page; on the right she writes everything she remembers about a dream, and on the left she puts notes about the stuff that’s happening in real life, things that might trigger her subconscious. Reality on one side, dreams on the other—a clear line between the two. But it turns out there are no clear lines, just a jumble of what is and what might be. And all of it is real.

¡Drew... Drew... Drew ven a mí!

¡Ya lo quiero!

Libro: Tied
Autora: Emma Chase
Serie: Tangled (#4)
Fecha de publicación: 7 de octubre, 2014


En la cuarta y sexy novela de romance de la Bestselling del New York Times, autora de Tangled y Twisted, Drew y Kate no pueden esperar por atar el nudo —si pueden sobrevivir a las festividades previas a la boda.

En la mayor parte de mi vida, nunca imaginé que me casaría. Pero Kate hizo lo imposible: me cambió. Creo que todos estamos de acuerdo en que era bastante malditamente asombroso en el pasado, pero ahora soy incluso mejor.
El camino hasta este día no ha sido todo arcoíris y erecciones. Hubo errores y malentendidos de la talla de una tragedia griega. Pero Kate y yo logramos atravesarlo con nuestra insaciable lujuria, admiración sin límites y un amor sin final intacto para los dos.
Con eso dicho, hubo algunos incidentes inesperados en las Vegas el fin de semana pasado que podrían haber sido un problema. Era más o menos… mi prueba final.
Sé lo que estás pensando… ¿Qué demonios hiciste esta vez? Relájense. No vamos a juzgar, o a gritar para que me castren, hasta que hayan escuchado toda la historia.
Y agárrense, porque están en una travesía salvaje. ¿Esperaban algo menos? 



No puedo esperar, ya lo quiero leer, a este sexy y egocéntrico hombre.


¡Vamos... nos enamoramos por los ojos!

¡Holi-holi! El amor a primera vista, insta-love... y todas esas cosas. Ni falsas, ni verdaderas. Pero lo que sí reconozco es: si existe ¡El amor a primera portada! Sí, portada. Es inevitable no ansiar leer un libro con una portada que nos deje boquiabiertos, una buena imagen frontal puede ser la clave para hacer que un libro sea exitoso o por lo menos muy buscado.

Bien, no quiero aburrirlos con esto, pero se me ha ocurrido mientras escribía, y aunque deje el tema inconcluso, voy a lo que de verdad me interesa justo ahora. 

Colleen Hoover, o debo decir... Colleen Diosa Hoover. Sí, creo que la segunda es más acorde a esta genial mujer que cada vez me enamora más con sus historias, me deja flotando en un bruma de placer y melancolía cuando alcanzo la última página. Creo que a todos nos pasa así y si no... bueno, es imposible que no.

Ugly Love, la nueva novela de Colleen, aunque no la he leído, solo quería dedicarle un post a esta preciosa portada, sin duda una de mis favoritas. Pronto leeré el libro y les traeré la reseña. Un libro que promete, o lo amas o lo odias. (Espero amarlo). 


Cuando Tate Collins conoce al piloto de aerolínea, Miles Archer, sabe que no es amor a primera vista. Ni siquiera iría tan lejos como para considerarse amigos. Lo único que Tate y Miles tienen en común es una atracción mutua innegable. Una vez que sus deseos están a la intemperie, se dan cuenta que tienen el perfecto arreglo. Él no quiere amor, y ella no tiene tiempo para eso, de modo que sólo queda el sexo. Su acuerdo podría ir sorprendentemente sin problemas, siempre y cuando Tate pueda apegarse a las únicas dos reglas que Miles tiene para ella.
Nunca preguntar sobre el pasado.
No esperes un futuro.
Ellos piensan que pueden manejar la situación, pero se dan cuenta casi de inmediato que no pueden con todo.
Los corazones se involucran.
Las promesas se rompen.
Las reglas se quebrantan. El amor se pone feo.
