Fast & Furious Friday: While I'm At BEA14 Edition

This week things have been a little busy, what with BEA and all, but I still have a couple of books I wanted to share with you.


Of Neptune (Syrena Legacy #3)  Anna Banks Publication: May 13, 2014 By: Feiwel & Friends Genre: YA Paranormal  5 Stars Amazon | Goodreads 
Emma and Galen’s kingdom and their love is threatened by long-lost Syrena in the brilliant conclusion to Anna Banks bestselling trilogy.

Emma, half human and half Syrena, and her Syrena love, Galen, need time together alone. Away from the kingdoms of Poseidon and Triton. Emma’s grandfather, the Poseidon king, suggests the two visit a small town called Neptune.

Neptune is home to both Syrena and Half-Breeds alike. But Emma and Galen didn’t sign up to be peacemakers between the ocean and the land-dwelling, freshwater Syrena. They didn’t bargain for meeting a charming Half-Breed named Reed, who can barely disguise his feelings for Emma. And they especially didn’t expect to find themselves in the middle of a power struggl…

Top Ten Book Characters As Cupcake Flavors

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.


Top Ten Book Characters As Cupcake Flavors

1. Jase Winstead (Be With Me by J. Lynn)Chocolate Peanut Butter - chocolate cake topped with peanut butter frosting. Jase is tall, dark and seductive, just like chocolate cake. His smooth moves and sweet offerings help to balance out his occasional saltiness. A combination Tess finds hard to resist. (J. Lynn too, apparently. This one is her favorite.)
2. Teresa Hamilton (Be With Me by J. Lynn)Vanilla Strawberry - vanilla cake topped with strawberry buttercream frosting. Tess, like vanilla cake, is a classic. What you see is what you get. She's dependable but don't let her sweetness fool you. She has a refreshing side too, one that can be a little tart at times, but it's exactly what Jase needs.

3. Cam Hamilton (Wait For You by J. Lynn)Turtle Cupcake - chocolate cake, topped with chocolate buttercream frosting, drizzled caramel and a turt…

THE MARRIAGE PACT
Linda Lael Miller
June 2014
ISBN-13: 978-0373778706 Amazon | Goodreads
Ten years ago, Hadleigh Stevens was eighteen and this close to saying “I do,” when Tripp Galloway interrupted her walk down the aisle. Now that she’s recovered from her youthful mistake and Tripp’s interference, Hadleigh and her single friends form a marriage pact. She doesn’t expect Tripp to meddle with her new plan to find Mr. Right— or to discover that she’s more attracted to him than ever.
Divorced and eager to reconnect with his cowboy roots, Tripp returns to Bliss County to save his ailing father’s ranch. He’s not looking for another wife—certainly not his best friend’s little sister. But he’s never been able to forget Hadleigh. And this time, if she ends up in his arms, he won’t be walking away.

Love is waiting in Bliss County. Come find it in THE MARRIAGE PACT!

5 STARS!

In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both.

Dallas Cole loathes football. That's what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.

But life doesn't always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again.

Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football…

Amazon | Goodreads 


Acclaimed author Katie McGarry returns with the knockout new story of two high school seniors who are about to learn what winning really means. Champion kickboxer Haley swore she'd never set foot in the ring again after one tragic night. But then the guy she can't stop thinking about accepts a mixed martial arts fight in her honor. Suddenly, Haley has to train West Young. All attitude, West is everything Haley promised herself she'd stay away from. Yet he won't last five seconds in the ring without her help.

West is keeping a big secret from Haley. About who he really is. But helping her-fighting for her-is a shot at redemption. Especially since it's his fault his family is falling apart. He can't change the past, but maybe he can change Haley's future.

Hayley and West have agreed to keep their relationship strictly in the ring. But as an unexpected bond form…

Make It Count (Bowler University #1) by Megan Erickson

Author: Megan Erickson
Publication: June 3, 2014

Kat Caruso wishes her brain had a return policy, or at least a complaint hot-line. The defective organ is constantly distracted, terrible at statistics, and absolutely flooded with inappropriate thoughts about her boyfriend’s gorgeous best friend, Alec…who just so happens to be her brand new math tutor. Who knew nerd was so hot?

Kat usually goes through tutors like she does boyfriends—both always seem to bail when they realize how hopeless she is. It’s safer for her heart to keep everyone at arm’s reach. But Alec is always stepping just a little too close.

Alec Stone should not be fantasizing about Kat. She’s adorable, unbelievably witty, and completely off limits. He’d never stab his best friend in the back…

But when secrets are revealed, the lines of loyalty are blurred. To make it count, Alec must learn messy human emotions can’t be solved like a trigonometry function. And Kat ha…

The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu

3 Stars 

Everyone has a lot to say about Alice Franklin, and it’s stopped mattering whether it’s true. The rumors started at a party when Alice supposedly had sex with two guys in one night. When school starts everyone almost forgets about Alice until one of those guys, super-popular Brandon, dies in a car wreck that was allegedly all Alice’s fault. Now the only friend she has is a boy who may be the only other person who knows the truth, but is too afraid to admit it. Told from the perspectives of popular girl Elaine, football star Josh, former outcast Kelsie, and shy genius Kurt, we see how everyone has a motive to bring – and keep – Alice down.


*I received this ARC from Macmillan in exchange for an honest review*

ALL ABOUT ALICE takes a hard look at the lies we tell about others and the secrets we keep ourselves. Watching Alice's story unfold through the eyes of several ot…
