Carry Your Heart
by Audrey Bell
New Adult Contemporary
1. Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m 24, I live in New York, and I’m afraid of the subway. Basically, I’m the worst New Yorker you’ve ever heard of.
2. What made you want to become a writer?
There are so many books and writers that have really changed the way I feel or think, or just taken me out of my boring life and into this exciting other world. Those other worlds are why I write. They’re not real, but they are so much more fun! I’ve always felt like I’ve lived more of my life in books and in writing than in the real world.
3. Who or what gives you inspiration?
If I really can’t think of where I should go with a story, I’ll just walk around my block until I find someone who looks interesting. And then I’ll make up a whole fake back story for them. And then I’ll usually stick ‘em in my book.
4. Tell us about CARRY YOUR HEART.
CARRY YOUR HEART is about a competitive skier, Pippa, whose heart was shattered, and a hot professional snowboarder, Hunter, who makes her realize that she can put the pieces together again. And there’s drama in between.
5. What’s the hardest part of being a writer?
Believing in your story. It’s easy to imagine a great scene, or a great concept. Sitting down and laying it out is tough. And trusting that it’s worth writing is even tougher.
6. What do you need around you to write (special drink, lucky items, etc)?
Just my computer and an unhealthy amount of caffeine.
7. What are some of your favorite books?
I just read THE AGE OF MIRACLES, which absolutely killed me. But I love Abbi Glines and Colleen Hoover, and I’m a huge Harry Potter freak.
8. Are your characters based on anyone you know?
There’s a little bit of a lot of different people in them.
9. What, if anything, are you working on right now?
I’m working on a book called LOVE SHOW, which is about Hadley, a college newspaper editor whose too busy for a real relationship, and her no-strings-attached fling with Jack Diamond, a frat bro. When they start feeling something more, they both wonder about the implication of falling in love…especially with the unlikely person that they think they’re falling in love with.
10. Why do you love writing?
It’s exciting! I love creating my own world and my own characters and seeing what happens with them. I put a lot of myself into my writing, and I always end up learning something about myself too.

Friends & Lovers Trilogy
by Bethany Lopez
New Adult Contemporary Romance
*This book is an omnibus of the three stories in this trilogy. I will be reviewing each novella separately below.
Friends & Lovers, Book One
In a small town, it’s hard to recover from being dumped by your high school sweetheart. That’s just what Briana has to do after Colin leaves her to follow his dreams. She focuses her energy into her friendships and the pursuit of her own goal of becoming a chef. Just when she finally feels like she’s on the right path, he comes back to town.
Colin knew breaking up with Briana before leaving for college was the right thing to do. He was determined to leave small-town life behind forever, and that included his high school girlfriend. But when a sports injury puts him on the sidelines, he’s forced to return home. Seeing Briana again brings back a lot of memories, and Colin wonders if he made the right decision. It doesn’t take long for him to realize he wants her back, and this time, he wants to make it last.
MY THOUGHTS: 3 OUT OF 5 FLEURS DE LIS
Colin breaks Briana’s heart when he breaks up with her just before leaving for college. So when he comes back into town four years later, she’s not too excited at the prospect of having to see him in their tiny town. But since time has passed, they’ve both become different people. Is it worth exploring if their love was true?
This was a very fast moving novella, that introduced a pretty large group of friends. Briana and Colin are both nice enough, but I found nothing particularly compelling about either of them.
I did feel that Briana was very quick to give Colin another chance. I know this was a novella but I would have liked to see a little more development in the relationship. The chemistry between Briana and Colin was very hot, however. The sex scenes were nicely written without being too explicit.
I did see a couple of things coming, but the end of the story was cute and made you want to root for these characters.
Friends & Lovers Trilogy, Book Two
Up until now, Nicole’s life has been mapped out for her. She’d go to college, marry Jake and become the upstanding minister’s wife. When she leaves that life to begin again in a small town in Texas, she finally has the freedom to live as she chooses. There, she meets Kent, a guy whose charm and passion make it hard to stick to her morals.
Dodging his father’s fists and protecting his twin sister made Kent into the man he is today. He learned by watching his mother stay by his father’s side that it’s better to keep relationships simple. Then he meets Nicole. Her sweet smile and genuine response to him land like punches to his resolve. After a lifetime of learning to protect his heart, can he finally let down his guard?
MY THOUGHTS: 3 OUT OF 5 FLEURS DE LIS
Nicole is the virginal preacher’s daughter who’s just moved into town from Dallas after disappointing her parents. Kent is the headstrong ladies’ man who moved from Detroit to escape the horrible childhood he and his twin sister had. Though the two seem to be opposites, there’s something about Nicole that sets Kent on fire, and he’s never wanted a girl this much before. Though they are different, is it worth pursuing to see if they can become something more?
This is another novella that revolves around a group of friends in a tiny Texas town. Nicole is rather dull as a character, but Kent is pretty cool. He’s been working hard since he was a child to pull himself and his twin out of poverty, and even tough he’s a young man, he’s accomplished a lot and still have big dreams to fulfill.
Though I did see one of the tropes I hate in this story, I thought it was good. I felt like the end was just the beginning of Kent and Nicole’s relationship, but it seems they are headed for happiness.
Friends & Lovers Trilogy, Book Three
Roni’s dreams of becoming a contemporary dancer were smashed under the brutal rage of her ex-husband’s fists. Getting divorced and starting over at the age of twenty-two was never her plan, but maybe in Texas, she’ll find her path. When the town’s local player, Rich, opens a Rec Center, she sees a way to rekindle her dancing dreams…and maybe have a little fun with her sexy new boss.
Rich never expected to fulfill his dreams in the town he planned to leave behind, but that’s just what he’s doing. His reputation as a noncommittal ladies’ man might make it challenging to earn respect in the business world, but he’s willing to prove that he’s serious. In fact, when it comes to pursuing Roni, he’s more than willing. But she’s taking a page out of his book, not wanting to risk another relationship. Can he convince her that his playboy days are over and that she can trust him with her heart?
Rich is back in his hometown after graduating college, and between his trysts with girls is working on opening a rec center. Roni has recently come to town to meet her twin brother Kent, after escaping an abusive marriage, and just wants a fresh start. Roni understandably is trying to steer clear of all men, but Rich’s charms eventually begin to work on her. Can she open herself up for the possibility of love again?
The final installment in the Friends and Lovers trilogy, I liked this one the best. Roni has already been through a terrible childhood, an abusive marriage, and a divorce, and as such seems much more mature than the other girls we’ve met in the series. She’s damaged and wary of men in general, and it was refreshing that she didn’t fall in love instantly with Rich. Rich is a pretty playboy with a soft side, who loves his mama and wants to give back to the community. The main characters in this story definitely made it more enjoyable.
Rich and Roni and more sexually experienced, and it showed in the sex scenes. Their chemistry sizzled on the pages. But beyond that, they really connected as a couple and I feel they have the strength to last. The ending to this story was great, and I liked that it wasn’t sterotypical.

Darkness of Light
by Stacey Marie Brown
New Adult Paranormal
Freak. Witch. Crazy. Schizo.
Ember Brycin has been called them all. She’s always known she’s different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances. Bizarre and inexplicable things continually happen to her, and having two different colored eyes, strange hair, and an unusual tattoo only contributes to the gossip about her.
When the latest school explosion lands her in a facility for trouble teens, she meets Eli Dragen, who’s hot as hell and darkly mysterious. Their connection is full of passion, danger, and secrets. Secrets that will not only change her life, but what and who she is—leading her down a path she never imagined possible.
Between Light and Dark, Ember finds a world where truth and knowledge are power and no one can be trusted. But her survival depends on finding out the truth about herself. In her pursuit, she is forced between love and destiny and good and evil, even when the differences between them aren’t always clear. At worst, she will incite a war that could destroy both worlds. At best, she will not only lose her heart but her life and everyone she loves. Once the truth is out, however, there will be no going back. And she’ll definitely wish she could.
1. Tell us a little about yourself.
Currently I am living in San Francisco, Ca. But I’ve also lived in Los Angeles, Boston, London, Caribbean, Australia, and New Zealand. I loved living abroad, but deep down I guess I am a Northern California girl at heart. I did some acting, set/interior design, and now split my time between staging homes and being an author. Writing and traveling are my two biggest passions. Other than that I am preparing to be that freaky cat lady down the street. Just need the cats.
2. Who or what gives you inspiration?
I’ve said this over and over, but it still is the truth. Reading does! Reading helps me so much in not only inspiring me with qualities I want in my stories, but also things I don’t want in my stories. I look at things while reading differently now. If a scene or character really captures me I ask why. If a book/scene/or character really makes me feel “ehhh, who cares?” I also ask why.
3. What’s the hardest part of being a writer?
Making an actual living off of it! Also sometimes reading reviews when the reader says something mean or clearly didn’t understand what you were trying to say or took it wrong. You automatically want to defend yourself and the characters decisions, but you have to take a moment, breathe, and understand that not everyone is going to like it. Those readers who really do get it, connect with it, and love it make you forget all the bad anyway. My readers make it all worth it . . . tenfold.
4. What do you need around you to write (special drink, lucky items, etc)?
Besides an IV of caffeine hooked up to my vein? I don’t have any particular item I eat or drink. The only thing, if I need to be serious about writing, is I need to leave the house and go to a café. As much as I love staying in my flannel pj bottoms, there are too many distractions at home. I tend to find “sparkly” things everywhere but in what I should be concentrating on.
5. What are some of your favorite books?
I am so terrible at these kind of questions only because I am really bad a narrowing things down. I love so many books for so many different reasons, and it could simply be based on my mood at that time. I really enjoy Richelle Mead, Kelley Armstrong, Ilona Andrews, Windy Higgins, S.M. Boyce, and the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning. Seriously I could go on . . . and on . . . and on . . .
6. Are your characters based on anyone you know?
I think there is a little of a lot of people I know in them. Some are by name and some by personality. I can’t imagine a writer not writing at least a little off of what they know. I can honestly say there isn’t one of my characters that is fully someone I know. But that could always change. Friends and enemies of writers should always be aware!
7. What, if anything, are you working on right now?
I just finished Book Two of the Darkness Series, Fire in the Darkness. It is being edited right now. Until it comes back to me for changes, I have started working on Book Three. There will be four in the series as of right now. If people really respond to them and want more. Who knows?
8. Why do you love writing?
Writing is just a part of me. I can’t explain that one thing that makes me love it. I guess I love making worlds and escaping into them. Would a therapist have a field day with me on why that is? Well, that goes without saying. But, in everything I’ve done, acting, designing, writing . . . it has always been about creating worlds and living in them for a time. To me it is magic!

Comes the Night
by Norah Wilson & Heather Doherty
Casters Series, Book One
How far would you go to escape your own personal teenage hell? Would you run away, break away from everything you know—even your own body?
Alex Robbins, Brooke Saunders and Maryanne Hemlock could not be more different, yet they all have something in common—deep and soul-searing pain. They are also all students at Streep Academy, a boarding school just one step away from juvie, where they’ve come to complete high school. The three have been relegated to Harvell House, the residence reserved for the hardest cases, the so-called Rejects from Reject Row.
In the forbidden attic of the old Victorian house-turned-residence, the girls discover the diary of Connie Harvell, a young woman who was confined and abused there some 50 years ago. In the end, Connie’s attic prison couldn’t hold her—not completely. She found a way out. At least a dark part of her did. And after reading her diary, the girls discover they can escape at will too. A terrifying, thrilling flight from their bodies and their troubles.
But God help them, their pain isn’t all they leave behind when they join with the night.
And God help anyone who’s wronged them…
MY THOUGHTS: 3.75 OUT OF 5 FLEURS DE LIS
Alex returns for another year at Streep Academy, where she will be joined by roommates Maryanne and Brooke in the sinister Harvell House. But before the school year officially starts, Alex wakes up in the attic of the house after being attacked but remembering nothing. She also finds an old diary that belonged to a girl their age who used to live in the house. Alex shares the secrets of the diary and the attic with her roommates, and they all learn of an exhilarating way to escape their troubles.
But before long they are abusing their new power, and must remind each other to withhold themselves before things get way out of hand. While they’re enjoying what they’ve found in themselves, there’s also the matter of what happened to the girl in the diary. The three girls’ school year is going to be beyond interesting, that’s for sure.
It did take me several chapters to really get interested in this book, but once I did I couldn’t stop reading. Alex and her roommates and all so different, each with their own internal pain they need to deal with. But the way they come together through something so unique was nice to watch.
The main thing I had trouble with was the language and diction, not only in the way the characters speak, but in the writing itself. I’m not sure the ages of the authors, but I found it very hard to believe that three 17 year old girls would speak in the way they do in this book. The writing style was just hard for me to get into, and some of it was very repetitive.
The story is told in alternating perspectives from all three of the girls, but is told in third person point of view. It takes a long while to get completely into the backstory of each girl, but once you do, it’s clear to see why each one is so hurt. Alex is the tough girl with a secret she wants no one to ever learn, because she doesn’t want their pity. Maryanne is the quiet one who may not have told the entire truth when it comes to the recent death of her baby brother. Brooke is the sassy city girl who may put up an attitude, but secretly harbors insecurities she can’t get over. Although the three girls start the school year barely talking to each other, they can all sense each other hiding something and it brings them closer together.
I really liked the unique supernatural themes of this book, and although it had many layers and different plot threads to follow, the complexity was not bothersome at all. The ending was fitting and sad, and although this is a series, I felt this book could have been left just as it is and be a complete story. I’m not sure what else the girls may have to get into, but I’ll definitely love to read more of their adventures together.

About the Author
by Jaimie Admans
Even being dead isn’t enough to get you out of maths class.
Dying wasn’t on sixteen-year-old Riley Richardson’s to-do list. And now, not only is she dead, but she’s stuck in a perpetual high school nightmare. Worse still, she’s stuck there with the geekiest, most annoying boy in the history of the world, ever.
In a school where the geeks are popular and just about everything is wrong, Riley has become an outcast. She begins a desperate quest to get back home, but her once-perfect life starts to unravel into something not nearly as great as she thought it was. And maybe death isn’t really that bad after all…
Welcome to Afterlife Academy, where horns are the norm, the microwave is more intelligent than the teachers, and the pumpkins have a taste for blood.
MY THOUGHTS: 4 OUT OF 5 FLEURS DE LIS
Riley Richardson thinks her life has been going pretty great up to this point…until she suddenly loses it when her slightly unbalanced boyfriend kills both Riley and the school geek, Anthony, in a car accident. Riley and Anthony are transported to the mystical Afterlife Academy, where they will learn how to deal with the fact that they are now dead.
Anthony seems to fit in right away, however, Riley makes it known that she doesn’t think she’s supposed to be there. Can Riley come to terms with the fact that she’s left her life behind for all eternity?
First of all let me say, I love love LOVE the cover! The grey juxtaposed with the stunning pinks and reds is not only beautiful, but has actual meaning within the story. The girl on the cover is also sadly beautiful, and this easily could have been how Riley looked while laying in her coffin.
Yes, the subject matter is a bit macabre, but once you get over that, Afterlife Academy is a cool, original YA tale. Riley was not the best person during her teenage years, even though she liked to think differently. She was a member of the popular crowd with a big shot boyfriend, and as such made it her mission to torment those she saw as lesser than her. Her favorite target was Anthony, a boy who lost his parents and takes pride in his geek status. It’s a matter of karma that the two die simultaneously, and have to enter into Afterlife Academy together.
Afterlife Academy itself is drab, but filled with such things as pet vampire pumpkins, and Narcissa, the demonic lunch lady with a soft side. Riley immediately hates the school, and goes about trying to find a way out.
Riley was pretty annoying for the first third of the book, but she quickly grew into a character who learned a lot about herself. Anthony was so cool, and even though Riley made his life miserable before, he never hesitated to be there for her after death. I enjoyed watching their friendship develop.
The end came on a little quickly, I thought, but it was just perfect. It’s so refreshing not to have to wait and wait for another book to come out to get closure on someone’s story. I’d love to read more from this author anytime!

The Savage Blue
by Zoraida Cordova
The Vicious Deep, Book Two
A storm is coming…
The ocean is a vicious place. Deeper and darker than Tristan could have imagined. Beneath its calm blue surface, an ancient battle is churning —and no one is safe.
In the quest for the Sea Throne, Tristan has already watched one good friend die. Now he must lead the rest on a dangerous voyage in search of the trident that will make him king. But while Tristan chases his destiny, the dark forces racing against him are getting stronger, and the sea witch of his nightmares is getting closer.
Battling sea dragons and savage creatures of the deep, Tristan needs his friends’ support. But they each have their secrets, and a betrayal will force Tristan to choose between his crown and his best friend Layla — the only girl he’s ever loved.
MY THOUGHTS: 3 OUT OF 5 FLEURS DE LIS
*SPOILER ALERT: This review is of the second book in a series, and will contain spoilers for the first book. There are no spoilers for the book I am reviewing, however. You can find the review for book one, The Vicious Deep, HERE.*
Well, the first book in this series, The Vicious Deep, left things with a cliffhanger so I was definitely ready to see what came next for Tristan after he found out the truth about what he was. Unfortunately, the second book in the series didn’t live up to what I hoped it would be.
This book starts off right after, and I mean RIGHT AFTER the events of book one. It had been several months since I’d read The Vicious Deep, and I didn’t have time to reread it before starting Savage Blue. But if you can, I definitely recommend you do so. The author doesn’t give much context onto the events of the first book. I really struggled to remember who some of the characters were, and for that matter I didn’t really recall the whole tournament of champions thing itself. There are very very few flashbacks or hints to help you if you don’t remember, and for a series that has books many months apart, I just appreciate when the book drops subtle hints to help me not feel as lost.
Tristan seems to have grown and embraced his responsibilities a great deal more than he had previously. He’s on a mission now to find Oracles that can lead him to the trident that will help him take rule of the sea. Even though he’s joined by his friends Kurt and Thalia, he’s still making slow progress. It doesn’t help that his nights are filled with disturbing visions of the sea witch Nieve who hopes to derail him from his journey.
Like many second novels in any series, that’s exactly what The Savage Blue was: a journey novel. To me, this was quite a slow journey though. I had a lot of difficulty getting into the story, and nothing really exciting happened until the last ten percent.
I wish I could have seen more from Layla and Tristan. Their romance seems promising, but Tristan is letting pretty much everything else in his life take precedence over her. I also barely heard from Thalia, who was one of my favorite characters in The Vicious Deep, and what she was doing I didn’t quite follow anyway.
The ending was explosive but I wish I hadn’t had to wade through 400 pages of slow moving plot to get there. Things are getting serious now, and I will be happy to join Tristan on the next leg of his adventure.

Paranormal Investigations, Book One
And my 21st birthday.
Just another college day full of classes and more homework than is humanly possible.
…until Jason, my best-friend-since-kindergarten, shows up to take me out for the day.
Like old times: the two of us on a wacky adventure, playing hooky from real life. With his lopsided grin and tickets to a circus full of misfits and monsters, he introduces me to a whole new world—one full of magic and mystery—and turns my reality upside down.
Except nothing goes as planned, and we end up running through the city to find a missing siren before someone brews a love potion with her blood.
Sirens and love potions, witches and elves, and Valentine kisses. Nothing will be the same for me again.
MY THOUGHTS: 3 OUT OF 5 FLEURS DE LIS
Adorable novella that revolves around best friends Emma and Jason. When Jason takes Emma out on her 21st birthday, she learns to expect the unexpected as they enter a magical world she never knew existed.
I thought Emma and Jason were both great characters, and I loved the banter and energy between them. For such a short story, you could really feel the chemistry between the two main characters.
I had a couple of problems: it didn’t seem realistic that it took Emma no time at all to accept that such things as unicorns, elves, and more were real. Other than that, I called the whole ending to the story about halfway through. But I enjoyed the ride.
I’d be happy to read more novellas involving Emma and Jason!
About the Author
Leaving the house to go to school, I had schoolbooks spilling out of one hand, the other holding my place in a Nancy Drew novel, and bunny slippers still on my feet. My mom was a wee bit upset.
I haven’t changed much. Still always have a book (or two) in my hand or creating stories in my head, and although I don’t have any bunny slippers, I love writing in my jammies and snuggly slipper socks.
When I grow up (maybe a hundred years from now), I’d like to be a superhero, but for now, saving the day, one page at a time, suits me just fine.
With my husband TJ (my own cuddly werewolf), I home-school our three girls, who keep us busy with art, science projects, books to read, dance classes, and walks about the park.
