Cover reveal: It Starts With L

Today is the cover reveal for It Starts With L by Cassandra Fear and this is my stop. This cover reveal is organized by Lola's Blog Tours. The cover is designed by Deranged Doctor Designs.

It Starts With LIt Starts With L (Letters of Love #1)
By Cassandra Fear
Genre: Contemporary/ Realistic
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: July 18, 2017

Blurb:
High school is tough, and Arielle knows this all too well.

She’s slightly chubbier than most of the other girls and gets reminded of this every day. And the fact that she’s never had a boyfriend makes her prime meat for the bullying crowd.

But then in walks Blake, the cute new boy who sweeps her off her feet and stands up to her bullies. Instant swoon.

Now with a guy at her side, and the promise of a blooming love, Arielle realizes it’s easy to lose sight of what is important. Her best friend, Jess, is on a downward spiral toward disaster, and Arielle needs to find a way to help her.

Unfortunately, Arielle discovers not everything in life is simple. Sometimes things happen, tragedy strikes, and it leaves you with wounds that might never heal.


You can find It Starts With L on Goodreads

It Starts With L full wrap


Excerpt:
Steam could shoot from Arielle’s ears at any minute. She stomped forward until she came face to face with Blake, whose face lit up when she approached. He looked even more grateful for the interruption than her. “Hey, Ari. I was wondering where you were.”
“I’m here. It’s hard to get around in this place, though.”
Karla glared daggers at her. Arielle smiled back at her. “Hey Karla. Nice to see you again.”
“Oh, please. Like you mean that. And why would I want some fat girl happy to see me?”
Blake stepped between Arielle and Karla, keeping his back to Arielle. “Here we go again. If you can’t be nice to my date, don’t talk to me.”
Karla’s mouth fell open. “Your date?”
“Yeah. You heard me. My date. So how about you stop making fun of her.” Blake crossed his arms over his stomach. Arielle peered around him with a look of triumph on her face, she couldn’t help it. It was the first time anyone had ever stood up to Karla for her, minus Jess. Jess always had Arielle’s back.
Karla rolled her eyes. “I can’t believe you’d pick that over this.” She gestured to herself like Vanna White on Wheel of Fortune.
Blake pulled Arielle in front of him. “This is prettier than you will ever be.”
“Okay.” Karla laughed. “Guess you’re as much of a freak as she is. Hope you two freaks find all kinds of freaky happiness together.” Then she walked away, her head held even higher than before.

Min helg

I lördags började vi renovera vårt sovrum efter att vi hade tömt hela rummet på fredagskvällen och ställt in det på bonussonens rum. 
Vi började med att måla om alla väggarna så dem var mer fräschare och snyggare sen åkte vi till Ikea mellan torkningen där vi inhandla huvudgavel, sängstomme och ny madrass.
Efter all målning var det dags att lägga det nya golvet som jag är förälskad i.


Här lägger jag vårt snygga golv samtidigt som vi lyssnade på
fjärde delen i Hicke Hiskelig Halvulk III (Hur man tränar en drake).
Vi höll på till runt elva-halv tolv på lördagen med golvet för att vi ville bli färdiga med rummet den helgen vilket vi nästan blev också. Enda som är kvar nu är de sista listorna som ska sättas upp typ.
Under söndagen körde vi iväg till Bauhaus och handlade ny dörr och dörrkarm sen hem till farmor efter det och åt lite lunch/tidig middag vilket inte satt helt fel.
När vi kom hem och sambon fixade listorna på tre av fyra väggar började vi sätta ihop sänggaveln och sängstommen som vi är jättenöjda med.

Så här snyggt blev det och älskar det faktum att vi sover högt
upp nu och alla fantastiska förvaringsmöjligheter som kom till.
Nu har mina Outlander-böcker blivit samlade i dem två fack
som satt på min sida av huvudgaveln.
På bilden ser ni även min klassikerhylla och Harry Potter-hylla samt
mitt sängbord.


Om ni har några projekt att utföra i sommar eller bara känner för att lyssna på ljudböcker och är nyfikna på hur BookBeat är så rekommenderar jag er att bli medlem via denna sidan som erbjuder er en gratis månad.

Cover reveal: Sweet Disaster


Sweet Disaster
Sierra Hill
Publication date: TBA
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Kady:
My life is a complete and utter disaster.
One major screw up after another.
In other words – I’m trouble.
I attempted college, but made a mess of that scene, too. Chalk it up to yet another disappointment in my parents’ ever-growing list of Kady failures.
Deciding I needed an escape from reality, my best friend and I flew off to Europe, where we were going to have the time of our lives.
The only problem with that plan is that I ran out of money after two weeks, and now I’m stuck in Florence, Italy with no means of getting home.
See? Trouble finds me wherever I go.
Gavin:
All I ever wanted to do was play basketball.

It’s all I’m good at.
I bypassed college and went straight to the pros. I’ve been playing overseas in Italy for six months, gaining fame, fans and having fun.
There’s only one problem. I miss home. I’m not too big to admit I’m homesick for my family and friends.
But that all changed when I heard from Cade Griffin, a former college hoops star. He called and asked me to rescue his sister, Kadence, who’s stranded and alone here in Florence.

Seems easy enough, right?
Except for the fact that Kady Griffin is gorgeous, completely off-limits and a sweet disaster waiting to happen all over my life.

Book Blitz: K-Love


K-Love
Alice Cornwall & Devon Atwood
(Korean Drama Series, #1)
Published by: May 4th 2017
Publication date: New Adult, Romance
Genres: Action, Adventure, New Adult, Romance, Science Fiction

Chase has been set up. She finds herself on a blind date with a Korean hottie, and all because her mom obsessively loves Korean romance dramas. It turns out that Daniel Bak is actually really dreamy, but things take a turn for the worse when Chase happens upon stolen research on her university professor’s laptop. It throws her into the arms of wealthy corporate heir Hyun Tae, who also happens to be Daniel’s best friend.
Caught between both men, and hunted down by a vengeful CEO, Chase must rely on Hyun Tae’s protection. But when the drama settles, where will her heart land?
EXCERPT:
The lunch lady ladled the soup into a bowl and placed a Styrofoam plate with the grilled cheese next to the bowl on her tray. “Anything else?”
“That’s it, thanks.” Chase smiled.
The Asian kid behind her asked for a salad. She caught a glimpse of him out of the corner of her eye as he got his plate of food. He was wearing white skinny jeans, navy sneakers, and a sort of silky gray T-shirt that definitely looked designer. They shuffled along in line until finally it was her turn to pay. Chase handed the thin student cashier her card. He looked at the debit card briefly before handing it back to her. “You need your student card.”
Chase took the card, suddenly nervous. “My what?”
The student had dark blond hair and kind features, but his look of exasperation told her he was thoroughly fed up with answering this question. “Your student ID card. You pay for lunch with it. You can’t get lunch any other way.”
“What, seriously?” Chase looked down at her tray. Her stomach gurgled. “So I have to get my card and then come back?”
“Sorry.”
She swallowed. “My mom didn’t say anything about a student ID card.” The cashier gave her a blank look of disbelief, so she added, “She works in registration.”
“Okay. Well, sorry, but you need a student ID.”
Someone sighed behind her. She was holding up the line.
“Excuse me,” a low voice said from behind her. Chase looked over her shoulder and found the guy with the designer shirt leaning toward her. He held out a student ID card, and reaching over her, handed it to the cashier. “Just pay for both.”
Chase turned to face him, her eyes widening. “Oh . . . ah, wait . . .”
The cashier hesitated.
“No, don’t do that,” Chase insisted. No, no, no! Don’t do that! I don’t like owing a complete stranger, thanks very much.
The guy gave the cashier a nod so full of confidence, Chase was pretty sure anyone would have obeyed an order from him. The cashier swiped the card.
Chase realized she was staring. For one thing, this guy was otherworldly beautiful. He had high cheekbones and warm brown eyes that tilted up at an exotic angle. His chin sloped down to a square point from his razor-like jawline. She almost couldn’t find words to respond to him. And besides that, he held himself like he owned the school.
His eyes flitted to her. “You can go now.”
“Oh.” Direct. And people thought she was made of stone. “Thanks. Sorry.”
“It’s fine.” He had an accent, but it was barely detectable.
She scurried forward with her tray, her face hot and her calm ruffled.
She whirled around to face him but miscalculated the motion by a mile. She collided with the generous stranger, her tray flying off to the side. Tomato soup splattered all over the floor, washing over both their shoes in a torrent of scalding liquid.
The guy jumped back and then looked up from his shoes to her face, his scowl a mixture of incredulity and shock.
The racket in the cafeteria quieted almost instantly. All eyes turned to them. Chase stood there like an idiot with tomato soup trickling down her leg and seeping between her toes. She couldn’t seem to find her voice with the entire cafeteria staring at her.

Frustrated by the search going nowhere, Rhett Calloway makes it his mission to discover the truth, find the girl, and win her heart. Some people in Pine Bridge say he’s obsessed.

Om boken:

En uråldrig fasa vaknar till liv och bryter sig loss, ett barn slukas och försvinner och någonstans i Mariefred finns en flicka som plågas av skuld och hemligheter. Samtidigt hålls Iris fången av Maggan Migrän och mörka planer börjar utkristalliseras.

Kort om vad jag tyckte om boken:

Vitormen tar vid där sjunde boken, Pestan, slutar vilket innebär en spännande handling helt och hållet genom hela bokens gång.

Boken lämnar en nyfiken på vad som ska komma hända härnäst i näst sista delen i denna otroligt bra bokserie när man är färdig med den. Återigen gör Morgan Alling ett fantastiskt bra jobb när han har läst in denna bok då han har en bra inlevelse. 

Jag rekommenderar dessa böckerna till barn och unga som gillar den här typen av spännande fantasy böcker samt även vuxna som är nyfikna på urban fantasy för barn.

InnocenceForSale.com/Amy
Ada Scott
Publication date: May 26th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Suspense

I want you to be my first, Daddy…
AMY
I sold my innocence for over a million dollars. Don’t judge me. You have no idea how far I’d go to save my Mom and our home.

This was the only thing I had that could bring in enough money in time, so yeah, I did it.
What kind of a guy purchases a girl’s virginity though? I had no idea what I’d be walking into when I arrived at the airport.
Kris Lane sure doesn’t look like he needs to pay for it. Tattoos, muscles, abs like a god, he must be tripping over panties wherever he goes. A girl could do worse for her first.
But why is he making me work so hard? Why doesn’t he just take what he paid for? By the time I stumble upon what he really wants, he’s wrapped me around his little finger…
KRIS
Buying Amy’s virginity was a dare, a high-stakes wager with my business partner. He knew I couldn’t resist the challenge.

The rules were simple. One week with Amy. I had to resist her every advance and send her home just as untouched as when she arrived.
Little did I know that the photos on the website didn’t do her beauty any justice. Her body speaks to mine in ways I didn’t know was possible.
But I never lose. I was winning this bet, too, until she whispered those magic words in my ear. No man could resist her, and it’s time I got my money’s worth.
All bets are off.
But what happens at the end of our week together?”
Warning: This book is a million out of ten on the spiciness scale. When these two get together… this book does *not* fade to black. Keep a fan handy.

EXCERPT:
Kris
When the doors slid open I nearly forgot how to breathe. She stood there with those blue eyes wide open, catching the setting sun at just the right angle to make them look like they glowed with supernatural beauty.
I’d seen gorgeous women before. I’d seen women that turn every head in the room before. Hell, even Cindy turned heads that night I first laid eyes on Amy’s picture.
What I hadn’t seen before was a girl so beautiful that it made me ache to not be touching her. Maybe it was the month and a half of abstinence, but every flutter of her eyelash, curve of her face, the way her blonde hair bounced and the movement of her body almost physically pulled me to her.
Amy’s eyes shot down as if she didn’t know what to do with herself, and her youthful inexperience shone through. She was fucking adorable, and my two million plus dollars were in serious trouble.
I was immeasurably thankful for the few steps she took while looking at her feet, it gave me a chance to regroup. By the time she looked up again, I felt more or less in charge of myself, but watching her move wasn’t easy by any stretch of the imagination.
Her eyes caught the sign I was holding and then travelled up to meet my gaze. I could almost hear a click when our eyes locked. Fireworks could have gone off next to me and I wouldn’t have turned to look at them.

Lite kort om boken:

Layla befinner sig äntligen mitt i en kändisskandal värd att rapportera om. Asters namn syns i varenda tidning även om det inte är den sorts uppmärksamhet hon strävat efter. Tommy har nästan lyckats att fånga sin drömtjej. Allt detta på grund av Madison Brooks försvinnande.

Vad jag tyckte om boken:

Äntligen har jag läst den spännande uppföljaren till Rivalerna som jag tyckte om.

I Svartlistad får vi följa hur karaktärerna Layla, Aster, Tommy och även Ryan försöker få fram vad som egentligen har hänt skådespelerskan Madison Brooks som bara försvann och vem är det egentligen som ligger bakom allt.

Händelseförloppet flyter på bra under bokens gång trots jag tyckte det var lite segt att läsa i början. När jag väl kom in i boken igen så ville jag inte sluta läsa den för det började bli mer och mer spännande.

Nu när jag läst ut denna bok ser jag framemot att få läsa den tredje och sista delen i denna spännande trilogi som jag tyvärr inte vet när den kommer att komma ut.

Jag rekommenderar denna bok till er som gillar att läsa spännande ungdomsböcker och ja, för att få helheten läs första delen som heter Rivalerna.
