Review:Simple Gifts by Anastasia Vitsky

Image
Music. Without the love of her life, how can Leila learn to live again?

Professional violinist Leila Feran is accustomed to fame as the youngest and first female concertmaster of the Philharmonic Symphony. Driven to achieve ever-increasing heights, she injures her wrist so badly that she may no longer be able to play. While she recovers, she moves in with her childhood best friend, a pianist and beloved orchestra teacher in a small town.

Carene welcomes Leila with open arms and only one condition: no divas allowed. And if Leila can’t follow the house rules, she might find herself over Carene’s knee…or worse. In between arguments over physical therapy and house rules, Carene’s zero-tolerance policy regarding divas results in some old-fashioned discipline that changes into something more.

Will Leila and Carene's new feelings for each other blossom into something wonderful? Or will Leila lose not just a potential soul mate, but also her friend?

Review: Destined (book 3 of Desolation) by Ali Cross

Image
I received this ARC copy to give an honest review.

I have to say this was my favorite read out of the whole series!

Where can I start with Destined!

Desi is trapped below the depths of hell, and she is feeling lost! Desi is to become so much more but she doesn't give her self the credit she deserves! Just because she is the daughter of Loki doesn't mean she can not be good, but she does not see it that way. She sees herself always putting those she cares about in harms way, and she always feels dow...more Choosing is a bad idea, because Desi always makes the wrong one, and sometimes there are no do-overs. Certainly not this time, when all has been lost and Desi can’t even save herself, let alone her friends. For Desi, the hardest thing is letting someone help her, to accept their sacrifice on her behalf. But that’s exactly what she’ll have to do in order to save the worlds from Helena’s destruction.

The goddess of Helheimer, long imprisoned by Desi’s father, Loki, is free at last,…

Review: Desolate Ali Cross (Book two of Desolation)

Image
Where darkness lives, all becomes desolate . . .

It’s been two months since sixteen-year-old Desolation Black chose Earth over Hell and her friend Miri over her eternal love, Michael.

Desi goes through the motions of life: school, training, remaining vigilant against the forces of darkness, but her dreams are full of the choices she wishes she could change. When she’s injured by a strange demon, old temptations arise, and the lines between good and evil blur. Desi discovers those choices aren’t so final after all.

And this time, the power of love—for a friend, for a lover—may not be enough to save her from the darkness that lurks within.

Austim Awarness Month! Devon's story told by his mother Sara B. Please read below is a giveaway!!!

Have you ever wondered what Autism was? Do you or someone you know have Autism? Did you know that sometimes Autism is sometimes misdiagnosed? Think about how long a parent is thinking their child has a disorder and is being treated for that one disorder, only to be told months or years later that no your child has Autism. Do you know that a majority of children that have Autism get picked on because they are so called "different" they look normal just like a normal person would but yet they act different. The children and I am sure adults too that have Autism are being bullied at times because people do not quite understand Autism.

If you would like more information on Autism, what it is, the symptoms and other useful information please go to this website: http://www.autism-society.org/
While you are there, feel free to look around, and pass that website around on your blog, on twitter, anywhere that will bring more people to the site and help others truly understand Autism…

Review: Waterdancer by Samantha Combs

Image
For Bailey Wasserman, being Bailey has recently become an incredible challenge. It's not enough that she must come to terms with her mother's new husband, their new life, and a new surfer boyfriend. When she meets her real father for the first time, she discovers a secret family trait that will alter the course of her own life and those she loves…maybe forever.

Bailey and her mom have always met life’s challenges as a team of two, more like best friends than mother and daughter. But her mom’s recent marriage has changed all of that, and having her little brother Landry is the only good Bailey can find in that union. The move to wealthy Del Mar from their humble beginnings has turned Bailey sour, until a chance meeting with surf hottie Jack West. Then Bailey’s father, with his annoying Zen-surfer lingo and a talking turtle he claims is no less than her spirit guardian, reenters her life and threatens the only relationship Bailey thinks is working in her world. She soon finds out…
