BLOG TOUR: The Chance (Thunder Point #3) by Robyn Carr

Share the joys, heartbreaks, challenges and triumphs of the people who inhabit the small Oregon town of Thunder Point with #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr 

With its breathtaking vistas and down-to-earth people, Thunder Point is the perfect place for FBI agent Laine Carrington to recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future. The locals embraced Laine as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. Knowing her wounds go beyond the physical, Laine hopes she'll fit in for a while and find her true self in a town that feels safe. She may even learn to open her heart to others, something an undercover agent has little time to indulge. 

Eric Gentry is also new to Thunder Point. Although he's a man with a dark past, he's determined to put down roots and get to know the daughter he only recently discovered. When Laine and Eric meet, their attraction is obvious to everyone. But while the law enforcement agent and the reformed criminal want to make things work, their differences may run too deep…unless they take a chance on each other and find that deep and mysterious bond that belongs to those who choose love over fear.

Thank you Little Bird Publicity, Harlequin MIRA and Netgalley for this eARC. 

The Chance is the third installment in Robyn Carr's, Thunder Point Series. It still features and interesting story told from multiple POVs, but The Chance focuses primarily on Eric Gentry and Laine Carrington. 

Eric is Gina's ex and Ashley's birth father and I was really hoping to see more of their relationship develop, but aside from one conversation where they discussed Laine, there wasn't a whole lot of interaction between father and daughter. From the outside Eric appears to be a tough guy but out of all the Thunder Point men, he is my least favorite. He lacked the same kind of inner strength Cooper and Mac had and the way he allowed Laine to walk all over him made me uncomfortable at times.

Laine Carrington is the FBI agent who infiltrated the commune and ended up helping Devon and the other women escape. I liked her in the second book and I am all for strong female characters, but she came across hard and bossy and degrading to Eric. She made it seem like his background and his current job as a mechanic was somehow menial and beneath her. Which was ironic considering she has spent a lifetime in a similar argument with her father.  Overall, her personality made connecting with her a challenge for me.

My biggest issue with this book was all of the "telling" and not "showing" that took place. I found myself being pulled out the story and bogged down by it which is a shame. I really enjoyed the first book in this series but I think my trips to Thunder Point may end with this one.

Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes! This is my stop on the Stone Cold Touch tour and you're in for a treat because Roth and Zayne stopped by to make cupcakes for Layla. More on that in a minute. 

 ~ About the Book ~
Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden.  Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what …

BLOG TOUR: Frazzled by Booki Vivat (GUEST POST + GIVEAWAY)

Meet Abbie Wu! She’s about to start middle school and she’s totally in crisis.

Abbie Wu is in crisis—and not just because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because the lunch ladies at school are totally corrupt or because everyone seems to have a “Thing” except her. Abbie Wu is in crisis always.

Heavily illustrated and embarrassingly honest, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is, where she belongs, and how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up. With Abbie’s flair for the dramatic and natural tendency to freak out, middle school has never seemed so nerve-racking!

Packed with hilarious black-and-white illustrations and doodles throughout, Frazzled takes readers through Abbie Wu’s hysterical middle school adventures.

If you have followed this blog or my Instagram or Pinterest board for any length of time, you've probably seen some of the bookish cupcake creations I've made over the past few years.

However, of all the different kinds of cupcakes I have been asked to make, today's definitely take the cake--or the cupcakes--or the finger.  Wait. What?  Stay with me, I'll explain. 
But first...
