I will clean this house…

Posted by A Gluten Free Mom on July 22, 2014 in Babysteps to a clean house |

Day 9. Today seems to have run away with itself. I did manage to clean a small section of the dining room and make a trip to goodwill with all the items I’ve been sticking in the garage this week (an entire trunk full).

Now, this may not look like a big area, but it took forever…getting rid of books and magazines is ultra hard for me, but the after picture is worth the time spent!

And my iron is finally back in the closet where it belongs! Small miracles abound :)

Fated for Love: A Book Review and Giveaway

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

Book #8 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #16

FATED FOR LOVE is the second of six hot, wealthy, and wickedly naughty Braden cousins, and the newest additions to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster.

Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing—and maybe having a few too many drinks—on her girls’ weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to stay longer than one night. That is…until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden—the subject of her late-night fantasies.

Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he’s the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague.

Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he’s there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie’s influence, Wes might even discover that he’s been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other’s arms, and they’re about to find out just how alike they really are.

THE BRADEN COUSINS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series

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

My two cents: Melissa Foster does it again! Callie has what could possibly be my dream job…Small town librarian. Then, as luck would have it she has an awesome set of friends that push her out of her comfort zone into the waiting arms of super hot Wes Braden.

Callie is a quiet natured, indoor loving girl, Wes is can be demanding, and is 100% an outdoors man. The differences between the two could not be more striking. In a classic city girl / country boy love story, Melissa Foster shows the best of both worlds.

Throw in the fact that Wes actually visits the library on a weekly basis (okay…maybe it is a slight ploy to see Callie, but what ever gets people into libraries is a good thing in my book) and an adorable rescue dog you’ve got a recipe for success.

Foster knows how to wiggle her characters right into my heart and make me wish I had a Colorado address!
