Catching Cassidy: A Book Review and Giveaway

Posted by A Gluten Free Mom on May 27, 2015 in Uncategorized |

My Two Cents: To find true love one must endure a true tragedy. A mantra that I find to be whole heartedly true and fully supported in Catching Cassidy. College graduation should be a euphoric experience, but Wyatt, Deliah, and Cassidy are in for a totally different experience.

Wyatt is a party now think never type of guy and then out of the blue is forced to shoulder huge responsibilities. His twin, Deliah is a little more down to earth, but is dealing with her own decision to come out to the world. Cassidy has always been the one with the plan: graduate and land the dream career in New York City. Life had its own plan for the trio…

Cassidy and Wyatt have been BFF’s for as long as they can remember. Then that line is crossed. Should they risk everything and continue down the path to possible destruction?

Death, love, cheating boyfriends, and embezzlement make for an action packed love story. A love story that you will totally love sitting poolside this summer!

NEW HARBORSIDE NIGHTS is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real New Adult Romance series that follows a group of friends who have known one another for years as “summer” friends, and now come together after college to build their lives. They’re tough, edgy, and accepting—most of the time. This series is written in the loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster.

Wyatt Armstrong never imagined that instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be dealing with the death of their parents. Then again, Wyatt had never been one to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside, Massachusetts, with his best friend Cassidy Lowell in tow, to deal with his parents’ death and to try to figure out his next step.

Six foot two, infuriatingly handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy, helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her insane with his one-night stands—but that’s what best friends are for, isn’t it? Having each other’s backs. There was never any doubt that she would accompany him to his family’s summer home—but she never expected to begin seeing Wyatt as more than a friend. Or has she been ignoring her feelings all along?

It’s impossible to ignore the sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy knows Wyatt’s past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn’t want to lose the one woman who’s shared his past and owns his heart.

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

“Catching Cassidy was laugh out loud funny, heartwarming, sexy, and hands down one of my favorite reads so far this year!” — #1 NYT Bestselling Author of The Bet – Rachel Van Dyken

Revenge in Paradise: A Book Review & Giveaway

Posted by A Gluten Free Mom on May 25, 2015 in Giveaway, Review |

My Two Cents: Brown hits a home run again for me. I really like reading about Madison’s antics. Although, I’m not sure about her taste in men. This is book 6 in a hopefully long running series and poor Madison is technically on husband/boyfriend number three. I’ve got to say I’ve got my favorite of the trio, do you?

Madison’s gardener has even worst taste in men than Madison does. The poor girl not only has a loser boyfriend, but is then arrested for his murder. Fab and Madison are 100% sure she is innocent, at least Madison is, Fab is a tad skeptical as usual when in comes to trusting people. The DA thinks she has a slam dunk case. Cue in Madison’s protective instincts for the down-trodden members of society.

If you are looking for the perfect series to kick off your summer reading, THIS IS IT! If you haven’t read any of the first 5 novels, it looks like I’ve made your summer plans for you. Enter below to win a $25 Amazon Giftcard…and then spend it purchasing your summer reading list!

When a man of questionable character’s corpse is found at The Cottages, beaten to death with Madison’s own gardening tools, she and her partner, Fab, set out to prove that the man’s abused girlfriend did not kill him. Along the way, Madison finds herself behind bars twice, held hostage in a mansion, and running from flying bullets.

There is no shortage of action, suspense, comedy, or romance in this edge-of-your-seat story of two friends with a knack for getting into—and somehow out of—trouble. This time they must answer one question: Who is responsible for getting their Revenge in Paradise?

Revenge in Paradise, is the sixth novel in Deborah Brown’s Paradise series, which can be also read as a stand alone book.

About the Author

I’ve been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer… and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

TomorrowLand: A Movie Review

Posted by A Gluten Free Mom on May 22, 2015 in Review |

Dystopian futures have been weighing heavy on my mind as of late. This is entirely my fault for assigning my honors English class a project to compare two classic dystopian works of literature. But ironically it fits in perfectly with Disney’s newest release: Tomorrowland.

Check out this clip:
 Pretty flipping awesome looking, right? Well, it sure was. I absolutely fell in love with Casey (played by Britt Robertson), and anything with Hugh Laurie is a bit hit in my books (although he sounded odd yelling “Bollox” instead of a Dr. House style expletive).

Old school Disneyland lovers will rejoice in the It’s a Small World Scene; Young Disneyland newbies will be disappointed when their first ride through a Small World doesn’t physically transport them to a new dimension.

I’ve got to say, I loved the fact that a teenage girl on the wrong path has the potential to be the savior of humanity. It is such a positive message and I sincerely hope that at least one young girl watches and goes “I want to be like Casey!”
