Synopsis:


Being stranded in L.A. wasn’t the best start to Jared Jackson’s music career. In fact, it should have been the forewarning that things were not what he thought they’d be. Especially when he’s collected from the airport by the band manager’s sharp-tongued niece.
The draw for Jared is immediate. In his heart, he knows Skylar Murphy is the girl for him. Proving it to her, however, is a whole other story. As new friendships are forged with his bandmates, Jared learns that the guys are planning to start their own band, effectively severing their band manager’s control. With his future in peril, Jared’s dream spirals in a tailspin as secrets and lies sweep him into a dangerous life. One he wasn’t prepared for... and one he can no longer escape from.
Will Jared rise above the destruction or will his new circumstances be his undoing?
Find out in the next installment of The Six Series, End Note, a new-adult romance.

#REVIEW: The Fruitful Wife: Cultivating a Love Only God Can Produce by Hayley DiMarco

Title: The Fruitful Wife: Cultivating a Love Only God Can Produce
Series: none
Author:  Hayley DiMarco
Published Date: Sept 30, 2012
Publisher: Crossway
Format: ebook
Pages: 208
ISBN: 978-1433530708
Genre: Christian self-help
Add to: Goodreads
Purchase: Amazon | Crossway

Rating: 1 star

Synopsis: Are you loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, AND self-controlled? Most of the time? Sometimes? How about when life gets hard or marriage gets tough? Whatever your answer may be, the good news is that you are not alone.Best-selling author, mother, and wife Hayley DiMarco understands the challenges we all face and answers the question at hand: How can you be the woman God is calling you to be—a woman who bears the fruit of the Spirit in your marriage and in the daily grind of life? To help you grow, Hayley explores the biblical significance of all nine fruits of the Spirit, explaining how each fruit first begins to grow and then how each impacts your day-to-day life and marriage. She writes like a close friend, openly sharing stories of her own failures to be spiritually fruitful as well as her relational struggles for control, authority, and respect. Ultimately, Hayley teaches us how even the rockiest of marriages can blossom and generate the fruit God intends to produce.

My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
First I want to start out by saying, I am not joyful, loving, peaceful, patient, kind, good gentle, or self-controlled. But I want to be those things! I want to be my grandmother. She had the patience of a saint, and could get everything done without breaking a sweat, and all with a smile on her face. Me? Not so much, I balk at housework, dig my heels in, going to it like a cat about to face a bath and feel like the responsibility of the entire household is on me.
So when I saw this book, I nearly jumped for joy. Finally, a book that will show me concrete ways of being the person I want to be (and probably my family too)! The cover was so pretty, and the promise of showing me how to become the worker, wife and mother that I want to be, had me almost giddy.
Oh but I was disappointed. Each chapter details the fruit of the Holy Spirit, with much Scripture attached. The author adds in stories of before she did whatever she did to have that particular fruit. And then she shows how she acts now that she has done whatever it is she has done to bring in that particular fruit, whether it be love, joy, patience, etc etc. I’m so glad that someone was able to do that. That’s what I want to do….now how do I do it?

That’s what’s missing! There’s nothing concrete that says, “Hey, try x, y, and z, and it will help you to bring joy into your life.” And that is why I give this book 1 star, without concrete methods to try, it’s just a book of fluff.

About The Book
book cover


The Other Man -- Book Two of the Sins of the Flesh Series
Publisher: eLectio Publishing 
Publish Date: December 16, 2014
ASIN: B00PSGEKFW
Genre: Inspirational Fiction/ Romance

Leah Westwood loves her husband Jacob with all her heart, even as the smoldering glances of her ex-flame Vincent Miller continue to affect her. What she once shared with Vincent threatens to rip apart the bonds she is trying to build with her husband. Jacob's heart belongs to Leah, but his body refuses to accept that. Rachel is the one who has been his mainstay at the most difficult times in his life. How could he leave her alone? Vincent wants Leah back and all he has to do is watch and wait as Jacob and Leah's relationship unravels. Ultimately, Leah must make a choice . . . between fantasy and fidelity.


Excerpt: REVEREND AND MRS. JACOB WESTWOOD AND VINCENT

Vincent Miller stared at the beaming bride, who stood at the altar as she married Jacob Westwood.  He had never seen Leah Martin look so beautiful. She had always been a looker, but now at her wedding, she had a bridal glow about her. Her caramel skin radiated with a golden sheen, the thick riot of russet curls shimmered, and her ivory gown was the perfect complement to her curves.She laughed as she gave her flowers to her maid of honor. A little boy came down the aisle with a broom decorated with pink ribbons and frills. When the little boy placed the broom at the bride and groom’s feet, she and Jacob jumped over it. The bridegroom tripped and his arms flailed to keep from falling. The church rang with laughter as he smiled and stole another kiss from his new bride.Vincent had seen Leah in all manner of undress, but he’d never kissed her. The numerous things they’d done to each other floated in his mind. Yet, as he saw Jacob kiss Leah again, longer and deeper, he wondered what it would have felt like to lock lips with her. Her husband seemed to enjoy it as the kiss continued and the church attendants cheered them on.Later, as he stood in line to congratulate the newlyweds, he wondered if she had revealed to her new husband her nearly virgin status. He and Leah had never gone all the way, but they’d come pretty close. The last time, six years ago, had been the most intense. At one point, she had completely lost restraint as she begged him to take her. To fall off the edge had been so tempting but he had held back with Herculean willpower.Another man was able to take her and join himself to her the way he had longed to do, and God would sanction the action. His lips twisted to the side as a coil of regret knotted and tied deep in his gut as he watched them.Third in line, Vincent watched with hooded eyes as Leah hugged more guests while the photographer took pictures of the bride and groom with everyone in the receiving line. As his turn came up, he braced himself and allowed his face to show only happiness for her.“Vincent!” she screamed in his ear as she hugged him. The world receded. The flash of the photographer’s camera faded as an onslaught of sensations cascaded over his mind and heated his surging blood.  His nostrils flared as he greedily inhaled the cocoa butter–scented skin. The assault of that delicious aroma nearly made his eyes roll into the back of his head.  All  her  round,  soft  curves  melted  into  his  solid  frame  like warmed syrup over pancakes. The gentle clasp of her arms around his middle effectively imprisoned him, but he was a willing captive.  He gritted his teeth in an attempt to still his senses from saturating themselves in the presence of this woman. Yet, when she pulled back from him an instant later, his body ached to hold her again.“Hey, Vincent.”The sound of the husband’s voice was an ice cold bucket of distraction that disintegrated the hold Leah’s presence had on him. Vincent gave himself a mental shake as he tugged on the ends of his suit and smoothed his hair in a nonchalant way. He hoped as he reached out to shake the groom’s hand that the slight tremble of his own hand wasn’t visible.“Congrats, you guys.” How words erupted from his mouth was a mystery. Before he could say more, the photographer gestured and Leah jumped between them with her arms around their necks.Vincent’s lips stretched and curved upward as a sardonic voice whispered in his mind. Smile for the camera.

Author: Lee French and Erik Kort
Publication Date: October 2014
Genre: Fantasy

Synopsis
Adjusting to her new life as a soul-bound agent of the Fallen has Chavali pushing herself harder than ever before. Between learning to fight, dealing with idiots, and climbing stairs - lots of stairs - she has little time to waste on thoughts of the future. Or the past.

When another agent fails to report in, Chavali is sent on the mission to discover her fate. Ready or not, she saddles up for a new adventure with new dangers.

The search takes her to Ket, a coastal city slathered in mystery. There, she faces ghosts from her past and demons of her future as she seeks answers. All she seems to find are more questions.

Plague, murder, lies, espionage...this city harbors much more than meets the eye, and maybe too much to handle.

Author Bio
Lee French lives in Olympia, WA with two kids, two bicycles, and too much stuff. She is an avid gamer and active member of the Myth-Weavers online RPG community, where she is known for her fondness for Angry Ninja Squirrels of Doom. In addition to spending much time there, she also trains year-round for the one-week of glorious madness that is RAGBRAI, has a nice flower garden with one dragon and absolutely no lawn gnomes, and tries in vain every year to grow vegetables that don't get devoured by neighborhood wildlife.

Erik Kort abides in the glorious Pacific Northwest, otherwise known as Mirkwood-Without-The-Giant-Spiders. Though the spiders often grow too numerous for his comfort. He is defended from all eight-legged threats by his brave and overly tolerant wife, and is mocked by his obligatory writer’s cat. When not writing, Erik comforts the elderly, guides youths through vast wildernesses, and smuggles more books into his library of increasingly alarming size.


INTERVIEW:



1. Tell us about the thought process behind your book and what caused you to sit down and write it.

The Greatest Sin series was originally birthed as a Dungeons & Dragons game played on an online message board (thus, a written medium). Erik ran the game, and I played a character in it. That character happened to be Chavali. For a variety of reasons, the game folded without ending, and both of us had individually invested a lot of time and effort into it. After I published my first book, thus embarking on the Author adventure, I suggested the idea of turning the game into books in a half-joking manner, and it turned out to be something Erik had been considering, too.
2 What is the strangest habit of yours?
None of my habits are strange. I swear. Really. Does talking to myself count, though?
3. What is your favorite book to read?
I have a remarkable memory, in that it's highly selective for what it deems worthy of retaining and providing for access. For the vast majority of books, I read them, and whether I enjoy it or not, I remember very little about it in as little as six months. It's magic! The one single book that I have read the most times, so far as I know, is Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. I adored the book as a child and would read it over and over and over. The second book after that would be a compiled edition of the Last Herald-Mage trilogy by Mercedes Lackey, which I'd say is my favorite 'adult' book.
4. Describe your favorite place to read.
Anywhere comfortable and of appropriate temperature.
5. Describe your favorite place to write.
I prefer to write in a beanbag chair next to a coffee table (for mousing and beverage holding), with a blanket handy for when it's cold, and bins of assorted stuff nearby. I'm also learning to love a treadmill desk.
6. Do you have any pets?
We have a mouse. Her name is Mouse. She's not terribly sociable, much like me. In my lifetime, I have kept (deep breath): hamsters, snakes, lizards, guinea pigs, tropical fish, goldfish, bettas (also fish), cats, dogs, parakeets, and mice. Much as I like cats, I'm happiest with pets that require minimal care, can be left alone for a week if needed, and are easy to clean up after. That's why I have a mouse now.
7. What is the best thing you have done in your life?
Crushed my enemies, seen them driven before me, and heard the lamentations of their women. Forty-two times.
8. List five adjectives to describe yourself.
Sarcastic, geeky, anxious (in terms of stagefright only), distractible, squirrel!
9. Who is your favorite superhero and why?
I'm conflicted between Nightcrawler and his BAMF!, and Deadpool. Both are awesome. Teleportation is my most favorite superpower, and Deadpool is hilarious.

I love to write, and while I don't always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous, and most of all romantic because I love a happily ever after. I look forward to seeing you again, whether online or between the pages of a book.
