BOOK BLITZ: Surf & Surrender by Riley Edgewood

Surf & Surrender (Summer Love Series #2)by Riley EdgewoodPublication date: February 23rd 2015Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
She wants to forget he ever existed. He’d never give up her memory.

Quinn Westwood is completely over Sawyer Carson. He broke her heart years ago and disappeared from her life without a word. So yeah. She’s over him. Never even thinks of him. In fact, she’s spending her college summer break surfing and lifeguarding in the Outer Banks, while nursing a bruised heart from a different relationship gone wrong. She doesn’t have room in her mind or heart for Sawyer—until she runs into him at a beach bonfire and the sparks that fly between them are way hotter than the flames heating the sand.

Sawyer never got over Quinn. The only thing stronger than what he feels for her is the secret keeping them apart, but sharing it would destroy more than just his life—it’d ruin hers, as well. Still, he can’t seem to keep away from her, can’t seem to keep his han…

Thank you to Andi from Andi's ABCs, and Gail from Ticket to Anywhere for coming up with this piece of perfection and allowing me to play along! 

To say I was a HUGE NKOTB fan in High School is the understatement of the millennium. My room was covered in pictures, posters and paraphernalia, not one inch of wall space or ceiling was visible. I had the bedding, the dolls, the 3-way calling phone, and this one time at Pom Camp I even dressed up as Joey Joe and did all of the moves to Hangin' Tough. You can see the photographic evidence at the end of this post. You're welcome. 

My obsession love for NKOTB didn't stop there. I saw them in concert many many times---Joey Joe (my boo) sang to me AND Jordan Knight shook my hand. True story: I didn't wash that hand until after my friend Danielle could touch it the next day at school. She lurved her some Jordan Knight and his germs gave me celebrity status for 12 hours. It was awesome! Also, gross, but still. 

At one point, I ser…

RELEASE BLITZ: The Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout

We have been dying to bring you the Release Blitz for Jennifer L. Armentrout's THE RETURN! THE RETURN is a New Adult Paranormal Romance and is a part of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Titan Series. Seth is looking to be just as dangerously delicious as we all hoped!!  The Fates are cackling their bony asses off...

It's been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs

they've given him have been violent and bloody--which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He's got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy's deal might be, but it's a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going in…
