Renaissance of the Heart: A Book Review & Giveaway (20$ Amazon or Paypal Giftcard)

Posted by A Gluten Free Mom on October 22, 2014 in Giveaway, Review |

My Two Cents: Lori M. Jones is a genius! This is not your standard boy meets girl, girl falls in love story. Throw in a teenage daughter, a gay soon to be ex-husband, and a smoking hot new famous boyfriend and you’ve got yourself a story to hold your attention for hours.

With gay marriage such a hot button issue here in Nevada (and many other states), I liked how Jones shows us the effects of hiding in the closet can do to not only the gay person, but those around them. On of the main takeaways that I got from this novel was “be true to yourself.” I know it sounds corny, but corny is often 100% true. Loving, being honest with, and caring for yourself has to come before you can truly care for others. It is lesson many struggle their entire life to learn and this book hammers it home without jamming it down.

After her husband of fifteen years comes out of the closet, a blindsided, forty-year-old Amanda Lewis is forced to salvage what remains of her shattered heart and navigate a new life for herself and her teenage daughter. But will a sizzling secret romance with a famous young NFL quarterback lead her to winning the life she deserves or set her up for her biggest loss yet?

As she embarks on the journey of rebuilding her home, Amanda discovers that finding forgiveness and repairing her damaged self-worth are her biggest challenges of all. While searching her soul–and even searching inside her city’s history–she finds answers. But will answers come too late and can a broken heart ever be truly fixed?

“Renaissance of the Heart is a light-hearted yet soul-filling story of what true love looks like” – review from Amazon

“This is the best book I have read in years! Lori Jones is an amazing author and needs to get more books out there! It’s so hard to put this book down!” – review from Amazon

“This is a great book and you can’t wait to get to the next chapter! The author draws you in right away with this story. The characters are amazing!” – review from Goodreads

Romancing My Love Book Review & Giveaway

Posted by A Gluten Free Mom on October 21, 2014 in Giveaway, Review |

My Two Cents:
I love love love Rebecca! She is a strong woman who I think many people can relate to. Everyone struggles in their lives, some more than others, but Rebecca makes you think it will be okay. Another thing I absolutely loved was the setting. Reno, NV is a place in my own home state. A place I’ve actually been to a few times (and am visiting again next month).

This book varies a little from most of Melissa Foster’s other’s in the Braden series. Family still plays an important role, but the steamy hot scenes are fewer. She focuses more on the building of an awesome relationship, which I think is a super important aspect of a lasting love.

NEWLY RELEASED……..

Book #9 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #18

After months of caring for her terminally ill mother, Rebecca Rivera is left all alone in a world she doesn’t trust—but she’s determined not to let her mother’s death define her. Losing her job, having to pummel some jerk for being too handsy, and living in her car are just temporary setbacks to an otherwise solid plan in finding her footing. Full of pride and used to being in control of her life, she’s certain she can make it on her own. The last thing Rebecca needs is a man to fix her troubles—even if that man is strikingly handsome, wealthy, and charismatic Pierce Braden.

Pierce is a powerful real estate investor on the verge of a major acquisition. As the eldest of six siblings raised by a single mother, he’s spent his life protecting those he loves. He’s used to being in charge and making things right, and although he’d give his life for his family, he treats the women he dates as expendable—until he meets sexy and stubborn Rebecca Rivera, a woman who is as strong as she is vulnerable.

Passion ignites between them, and the two share their most intimate thoughts and desires. It doesn’t take long for Pierce to realize that Rebecca is as determined not to be saved as he is to find a way into her heart. As their love grows, Rebecca must face fears she didn’t even realize she had—and Pierce must learn the hard truth that sometimes less really is more. Is the power of true love enough for Rebecca and Pierce to learn to give up control and allow their hearts to take over?

THE BRADEN COUSINS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, this is the third of six books.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**
