Three very different couples, one hot affair, one crazy wife, a business deal double-crossing. What once stayed behind closed doors becomes open for all to see.

Summer Hart, a sexy, redheaded cougar, finds herself in the middle of everyone’s lives. On the outside it appears that she has the perfect life inside of her large, picturesque home.

Their honor roll daughter topped the picture-perfect image they created.

#PBwkendread Dawn of Hope by Peter Prichard and The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Image
This weekend I am going to try to tackle two paperbacks if I can. Dawn of Hope which was given to me to review and The 5th Wave which my librarian recommend to me. 

"Excuse me, young lady. We have the ambulance on their way, and they want to know what happened to Drew Winston." "He said he was going to rape me," Dawn replied purposefully to the administrative assistant in the high-school office. "I pushed him away and tripped him, and as he fell, he hit his head on the corner of a water fountain, which was not my intent. He's bleeding from his head and is in convulsions." Within twenty-four hours of beginning her senior year at Fair Shore High School as a new student, Dawn Mortenson had chosen to fight the town's acceptance of the bullying and sexual abuse of young women by confronting Drew Winston, the school's All-American quarterback. Following that confrontation, she received multiple death threats, so her mother had to hire a security fir…

It’s the worst day of Charlie Everson’s life.

Set in a small, picturesque North Carolina town, Charlie Donlea’s suspenseful debut novel tells the haunting story of a murdered law school student, the reporter assigned to her story—and the intimate connection that comes when the living walk in the footsteps of the dead.
“No suspects. No persons of interest. Just a girl who was alive one day and dead the next.”

But two weeks ago, Becca Eckersley, a first-year law student, was brutally murdered in one of those houses. The daughter of a powerful attorney, Becca was hard-working, accomplished, and ambitious. Now, while the town reels…

Author: Kim Karr
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 21, 2016



Every city needs a hero, but Detroit’s white knight just might be a villain.

A rough childhood branded Jasper Storm trouble. A bad boy. Not worth a damn. His love of cars was the only thing that could battle his delinquency. With the need for speed in his blood, he overcame his wayward ways. Mostly. Now the broken city of Detroit hails him their shining star. And the man behind a new cutting-edge automobile is ready to turn this bankrupt town around.

Charlotte Lane was the tomboy who lived next door. She was his best friend. He was her protector. Then tragedy struck and she disappeared, forever—or so he thought.
Everything Jasper does in life is fast. He talks fast, f*cks fast, and drives fast. But when one reckless turn brings him face-to-face with the childhood he has tried very hard to forget, he finds himself on the edge of wondering if he shouldn’t slow down.

I finished the books I wanted to read this week though it wasn't as many books like I had for the Halloween read-a-thon but that is okay. It always seems that towards the beginning of the year I am always super busy then it all dies down a bit only to be super busy come summer time.

The books I chose to read are the following since they are all NetGalley books that are not due to be on my blog until the published date but I did put the reviews on Goodreads which you can check out by just clicking the link.

If you guys want to join in next …

Author Spotlight & GIVEAWAY: Stacey Rourke

Meet Stacey Rourke! She is an award winning, best-selling author, yet her quirky writing style and personality has her better known for her irrational fear of garden gnomes and her insistence that pretty shoes actually call out to her as she shops. That said, if you like books with a heap of action, a swirl of suspense, a dash of romance, and a slathering of snappy one-liners, Stacey’s books might be the right recipe for you! Without further ado, let’s explore the works of this twistedly, fun ginger!



In the literary world, Stacey is probably best known for her Legends Saga. This suspenseful literary adventure dares to ask the question; what if the best fiction had dark roots of truth? It kicks off with Crane, a modern day spin on the Legends of Sleepy Hollow. Things delve into the macabre in Raven, book 2, where the works of Edgar Allen Poe are weaved together into an intricate tapestry. The third book, Steam, combines the writings of HG Wells and Nathaniel Hawthorne into a backstory …
