AuthorsAreRockstar!! Jenny Han!!!

I had the great honor of hosting a spot on the Author are Rockstars tour!!! Not only was I so lucky to be on the tour, I was able to interview JENNY HAN!!!!! 

She is truly a rockstar!  She gave us some of the best characters out there.  She gave us Conrad!!!! When I was first told about these books I went straight to the store and bought all 3 books!  I read them all in one day and cried when they were done.  
She is and always be my rockstar!

Hello Jenny!!! I am so glad that you have stopped by!  So lets dive right in!!!  

How did you come up with Belly and Conrad and did you always know the outcome of the books?

I did not always know the outcome of the books. The whole way through, I had a picture in my mind of what the last scene would look like—a girl in a white dress, running with a boy. I just wasn’t completely sure which boy. In the second book It’s Not Summer Without You, I wrote half of it from Jeremiah’s perspective, and I fell in love with him for sure. Conrad had always been in my heart, but Jeremiah kind of snuck in there and stuck. I vacillated between the two of them much the same way Belly did. She loved them both in different ways.

What was your favorite scene to write from the summer series? 

My favorite scene to write was probably the day after Christmas scene in We’ll Always Have Summer. I liked the thought of these two characters sort of colliding into each other after a very long time apart. They are both so guarded and careful with each other, because they both still care, but then Belly slips and falls, which I love. Physical comedy always makes me laugh.

Did you spend months at a summer house writing the Summer books????? 

I was very lucky and I got to spend time at a lot of different summer houses while I was writing the Summer books. I was in the Hamptons and at Cape Cod. The summer house in the book is an amalgamation of all the houses.

Where is your favorite place to write? Some authors have said that they have to be in a quiet office or off in a log cabin somewhere, what do you have to have to write?

I like to write at cafes and in hotel rooms, at friends’ houses, on the subway. Anywhere but in my own apartment.

So are we going to see Belly and Conrad anytime soon???
Maybe a movie???

The TV rights for the Summer series have been optioned by Lionsgate TV, so my fingers are crossed! It’s the first step in a series of many, many steps—it seems that in Hollywood, lightning has to strike twice, and then again and again. But I’m always hopeful!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I just want you to know that you are truly a rockstar in the writing world and I personally could not get enough of Belly and Conrad!!! Thank you for giving us such a great story!!!

Scrap Metal- Alexi Raymond and Jennah Scott

I didn't know if you know this, but my awesome best friend wrote a book!!!! I know right!!! That is so cool!!!!!  She co wrote this pretty awesome book called Scrap Metal!!

Not one to settle down, Angelica Rousseau never thought she’d consider planting roots in the small town of Kimmswick, Missouri. When her art speaks to her—and gives her a reason to get up close and personal with body shop owner, Ryker Talcott—sticking around starts to have appeal.

Ryker has to deal with a lot of personalities and has found that custom orders for women almost never end well. Especially when the women are as picky and confident as Angelica. This time it’s different. He's never met a woman like her. She rivals his confidence and has the attitude to back it up.

When the past threatens their future, Angelica and Ryker have to decide what's more importanttheir own promises to themselves, or the love they both feel for each other.

Here is a quick excerpt:

Ryke growled. “Sweetheart, I’ve been thinking about you since you stepped out of my shop a week ago. Tell me you haven’t done the same thing.”
“If I haven’t?” She cocked her head to the side. Ryke’s mouth watered with desire. He wanted to fasten his lips to her neck, mark her as his.
“Mmm, I don’t think that’s the case.”
“I guess you’ll have to wait and see, won’t you?”
“You are torture.”
Angel laughed, placing her hand in his and tugging him down the hall to the rear of the shop. Ryke closed his eyes, pictured them coming back to the front of the shop when she wasn’t so distracted by her project. Hell, he would be more than ready to sneak up behind her, take her by the waist and toss her onto the counter. If only he knew she would go for that.
Without too much deliberation Angel found what she described as the perfect piece of metal. It was thin enough she would be able to mold it without too much heat, but sturdy enough to make a functional chair. 
As soon as she started rambling on about the variations and striations, Ryke zoned out. He’d have to work on paying attention if he was going to try to make a go of this.
Ryke helped her put the metal in Ray’s truck. He was ready to put his plan into place when they walked inside, but she jumped onto the counter and sat with one leg crossed over the other. Her hands propped up behind her, pushing her breasts out to further torment him. 
“So about that adventure on the desk.”
This woman knew what she was doing to him. When she hopped on the counter her eyes lowered a fraction of an inch, a look that screamed, “I’m yours to do with what you want.”
The sound of a truck out front turned both of their heads. Ryke wanted to tell her he could lock the door or hell, forget whoever was out there. He was hard and aching and had a beautiful woman on his countertop. 
Angelica hopped from the desk, cupping him in her hand. “Probably not good for business, huh,” she pouted, her hand trailing across his zipper as she started to move behind him. “You have an office back here, right?” 
Ryker looked between the door and the woman who turned his world upside down and his dick hard enough to break concrete. She motioned with her thumb behind her. “Come find me when you’re done.” 

It sounds so great!!! So now when it comes out on JULY 8TH you need to get it!!!!!

It is available at  soon for preorder!!!!!

Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013!!!

I can not believe what the year I had.  I know that I haven't been posting or doing much of anything lately but that is because most of you know, I am expecting my first child! The Hubster and I are very excited!  We are having a little girl and we are naming her.....


At this point in time I am 31 weeks and 4 days!  It is all happening so quickly.  I am trying to take it all in but I blink and a week and a half goes by.  Parts of me wishes that it would slow down just a bit, but then parts of me are glad that it is going by so fast.  :)

But I am so excited for this year!  Not only am I going to become a mother, my other true love is playing for the National Championship on Monday!!!! That is right everyone.....


Monday is going to be a pretty awesome day for me and I seriously can not wait to see Notre Dame beat Bama!!!!

But this is not what you are here to see.  This is a book blog, and I have not been posting about books.... :(  Well I am here to tell you that I am back!  I have so much in store for 2013 and I can not wait! It is going to be pretty awesome!  Just wait and see!  

Well thank you for stopping by, and I hope that you come back soon and see what I have planned!!!

Oh yeah,

Review: Epic Force

Epic Force
By: Alexi Raymond
Release Date: October 4, 2012
Source: Kindle Store

Goodreads Synopsis:

Trinity has given up everything to reach her dreams as a professional wrestler in the national spotlight; even though it's breaking her heart to stay away from her trainer, Derek.

Derek knows the road Trinity is walking and wants to be there for her to see her succeed, but he wants so much more than that for them. 

After having a wrestler break her heart once, Trinity isn't willing to jump back into another wrestling-relationship. That doesn't stop her heart from pounding at the sight of Derek or her hands from trembling with their touch. 

Convinced she has to focus on her dreams, Trinity leaves the safety of home and wrestling federation,(Epic Force Wrestling), and heads out for the chance of a lifetime. The things she sees don't make her more sure of her goals, but they do make her sure of something else - she can't outrun her old wrestling school or the trainer that holds her heart in his hands.

Sometimes true love is an epic force all its own. -Goodreads-

My thoughts:

I remember the first text I got about this book, and how I should read it. How this book was like nothing that I have ever read before, and boy was it.  I am so glad I took the time to read it.  I am new to reading romance novels, so when the sex scenes came I didn't know what to expect.  But I will get to that...

The book is about a girl that wants to become a professional wrestler.  She would do anything to become one and that is exactly what she is doing. She has this pretty awesome roommate that reminds me a little of myself.... :)  She runs into some hiccups along the way but she comes out on top.  

The whole story was written very well.  I was very surprised on how well it was written, it is not like I thought the book was going to bad.  I just thought that is was also going to have some hiccups because it was written by a debut author, but boy was I wrong.  I would recommend this book to anyone.  The only thing I can complain about it that for someone that is not used to romance novels, and kind of knows the back story to the story, there was a lot of romance that went on.  I know what you are thinking.....Laci you read a romance novel.... Yes yes I know, but I just wasn't used to it.   I am not saying that the book was bad, I am saying that it was a shock to me.  

My rating:

I am giving this book a 4 out 5 stars. I really liked it.  It had everything a good book needs.  I could have done without the sex scenes, but that is just my personal preference.  I think that those scenes made the book what it is.  


Epic Force Blog Tour!!

I am so excited to be apart of the Epic Force Blog Tour!!!  Please if you haven't done so already, take the time and read this book. You won't be disappointed!!!  You can read my review and you will understand!!!

When I was approached to be in the blog tour there was no question about it.  :) And I knew exactly who I wanted to interview....DAVE!!!! He really made the book what it was....LOL

Who is the Dave we should know?

How many Dave's do you know? EH - Doesn't matter. Once you've met me, I'm the ONLY Dave that matters. But you knew that. *winks*

Good point...
What are somethings you are trying to accomplish in wrestling?

Well, the goal is always the same for us wrestlers. Money. Women. Money. More Women. Partys. With women. You know, the usual stuff!

What are something you change about yourself?

What is there to change?! *looks over self* It's been working out pretty good so far, I think I'll keep me the way I am!

When and where is your next show?

Ah, ah, ah, little lady. YOU are married. I know this and will not be wrangled into your shenanagins! Anyway, I think Notre Dame has a game to lose the day of my next show, you wouldn't want to miss that would you?! 

And last question, every women is dying to know.... Boxers or briefs? 


Hey, I have something else to say. I hope that's ok, if it's not...well, I've already started talking sooo... But thanks for the interview. I mean, Derek is a good guy - one of my best friends - and Trinity is man, she's the most beautiful of all my brothers. And I know they had a rough start and everyone's real wrapped up in them but YOU chose to talk to me. And I appreciate that. It's pretty cool that someone who doesn't wrestle would be so interested in what I'm interested in, you know? Anyway. It's getting pretty cold over here in the midwest and well, question numero five kind of gives it away, but really - thanks for hanging out with me, we'll have to do it again sometime!

Anytime....believe me anytime....

Well there you have it.  I had so much fun and I think you know why I picked the best character in the book!!!! :)

Thanks for stopping by, until next time followers....

oh yeah one more thing....:)

Review: Grace Doll

Grace Doll

Grace Doll
By:  Jennifer Laurens
Publisher: Grove Creek Publishing
Release Date: August 20th, 2012
Pages: 220
Source: Paperback received from publisher (Thank you!)

Goodreads Synopsis: 

Grace Doll had everything a girl could want: Fame. Fortune. Beauty.

Everything except, of course, her freedom. So when a powerful movie producer forces an experimental treatment on Grace--one that's purported to make beauty immortal--she stages her own death to escape him.

With the help of trusted friends, Grace slips into hiding. She's forever flawless, forever young and forever pursued by her past.

But when a stranger arrives on her doorstep, holding the key to a life she thought she'd left behind, Grace must decide between the safety she's known... and embracing the role she was born to play. 

My Thoughts: 

I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard about this book.  I really thought it was going to be something that I hated.  But boy was I wrong.  This book was more then a pretty cover and a story that makes you keeps going and wanting more.  It was a tale, a tale about a girls journey that makes her survive.  When I read the first couple chapters I was very thrown back with what was happening on the pages.  I didn't know that this was going to happen.  But then the remarkable happened.  She is given a second chance!  

You meet Grace Doll.  She has everything you think that you would want in a life.  Fame, Beauty, and money.  And best of all a man that can't keep his hands off of her.  But that is what is trapping her in this life.  The man that owns her, yes own her won't let her go.  He keeps her around for his needs and not hers.  

When this was all happening on the pages, I found myself yelling at the book for her just to get up and leave.  I mean that is what I would do.  I understand every situation is different, but I was really waiting for her to just pick up and leave.

But the book was a lot more then a tale about a girl that was kept against her will to please the man that owns her.  It was about being empowered.  It was about a girls journey from girl to women and her life.  It was beyond a good book.  I am so happy that I had the pleasure in being involved in the Blog tour for this amazing book.  Jennifer did an amazing job putting this very awkward world to life.  If all of her books are as great as this one, I need to find them all and read them right now!!!!!

My Rating: 

I am giving this book a 5 out 5 stars!!!!  Yes, it was really that good!
