A Year of Hopes and Dreams – Erin Nicholas (Author Giveaway)

Erin is giving away A SIGNED PAPERBACK COPY OF TANGLED UP (releasing Jan 17th) and swag

Erin Nicholas


My hope for 2017 are that we all keep hoping. Some days it’s tough to see the good and it’s even harder to believe in things you can’t see, but here’s my plan– to keep hoping and to do my part to give others hope. We need more kindness in the world but kindness doesn’t just happen. It’s not enough to *feel* kindly toward others or to *think* kind thoughts, we have to BE kind. We have to be actively kind to other people. That means action. That means I need to smile more and be more patient and be more helpful and be more generous and reach out to other people and DO what I can to make the world a better place. When it’s hard to feel hope and kindness and love, I think we have to go out and be part of creating hope and kindness and love. So that’s my plan for 2017– to BE kind and to BE hopeful and to help spread that around.

Two of my favorite quotes that I have by my computer and in my planner for 2017 are:

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. –Desmond Tutu

Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. –Bradley Whitford

I love quotes! I always have– I had journals filled with them even as a teenager. So share a favorite quote with me!

ARC Review – Giving It All (Naked Men #3) by Christi Barth

I love books where characters show growth and also find exactly what they need in their life to make them complete and Giving It All had that along with the witty, fun and often candid dialog the Naked Men are famous for, making this an excellent addition to this series. ~ Slick, Guilty Pleasures 

Logan Marsh never stays in one place for long. Through his family’s foundation, Logan spends his days traveling to the world’s most dangerous places to deliver disaster relief, which really puts a damper on his sex life—until he reconnects with his high-school crush. Stranded together in the Caribbean, they enjoy a steamy fling that awakens feelings Logan has ignored for too long. But family drama calls him away from her sweet embrace . . . or so he thinks.

Brooke Gallagher loved being a home economics teacher and cheerleading coach. Then an unexpected tragedy forced her to take some time off. Now she’s back in D.C. and despite the intensity of her tropical encounter with Logan, she’s shocked to bump into him again. Logan’s dealing with his own issues (including a newly discovered half-sister) and he’s itching to get back on the road. More than anything, Brooke wants to be there for him. But first, he has to decide if love is enough to keep him in one place.

ARC Review – Spurred On (Stripped Down #3) by Sabrina York

Sabrina York had a fresh and innovative idea for this story. Interesting, fun and original are words that aptly describe Spurred On. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures 

Just south of Fort Worth, Texas, you’ll find a little ranch where the hot, toned cowboys are ready and eager to take it all off and make your naughtiest fantasies come true…

After their explosive breakup, it took a long time for Sidney’s broken heart to heal—and she’s not about to risk it again. She’ll tangle with Cody and live out her simmering fantasies, but when the time comes she’s going to walk away satisfied.

But love has a way of ruining the best laid plans, and Cody and Sidney are about to learn that what you want isn’t always what you need…

ARC Review – Dirty Money (Roughneck Billionaires #1) by Jessica Clare

Dirty Money was the classic “don’t judge a book by its cover” story. It was light-hearted, fun and totally amusing. Fast moving, fun, sexy … what more could you ask for in a book! ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures 

Southern Texas heats up when four roughneck billionaires set their sights on love in the new series from New York Times bestselling author Jessica Clare.

Boone Price and his brothers know oil; at least, the dirty, backbreaking side of working an oil rig. But when their scrubby, worthless hunting land turns out to be sitting on top of one of the biggest oil wells in North America, they go from the rig to the boardroom and end up billionaires practically overnight.

Now with enough money to do whatever he wants, Boone is developing a taste for fine things. And the finest thing he’s ever seen is Ivy Smithfield, local realtor. Boone’s determined to buy her affection and show the world that he’s more than just a dirty fool with a bit of money. Ivy’s classy and beautiful – she’ll make the perfect trophy wife. The fact that she’s sexy and funny is just a bonus.

There’s one tiny problem – Ivy’s as dirt poor as Boone is. Her carefully crafted veneer of luxury? All an act to promote her business. What’s Boone going to do when he finds out the woman he’s falling for is, well, in his league?

ARC Review – Real Good Love (Real Duet, #2) by Meghan March

You can’t go wrong with a Meghan March book—Real Good Love is no exception. Smart, funny, suspenseful, and sexy as hell, I was completely caught up in Logan, Banner, and the residents of Gold Haven, KY. ~ Java Girl, Guilty Pleasures

Real duet complete series

real-good-love-amazonFrom USA Today bestselling author Meghan March comes a sexy new duet with a hero you won’t want to miss.

I’ve had my fair share of bad boys, but nothing prepared me for what it was like to be with a real good man.

Logan Brantley changed everything.

Somewhere along the way, what started as a fling became the best part of my life.

He makes me want all the things I’ve never had, like forever and happily ever after, but nothing worth having comes easily.

Everyone is betting on us to fail, but I’m ready to fight for this real good love.

Real Good Love is the conclusion of the Real Duet and should be read following Real Good Man.

A Year of Hopes and Dreams – Erika Wilde (Author Giveaway)

Erika is giving away a $10.00 Amazon Gift Card

Ericka Wilde

My hopes and dreams for 2017 are very simple. I hope to see more kindness and tolerance in the world, and one of the ways I plan to do my part is by random acts of kindness. It’s something that costs nothing, yet can mean so much to someone else. It shows compassion and patience and genuine caring, and it feels good to know that you’ve touched another person’s life in a positive way. It’s the small things that matter . . . opening a door for someone else. Letting another driver merge in front of your car, instead of speeding up so they can’t. Picking up something that someone might have dropped. Buying the drink for the person behind you in the drive-through line at your favorite coffee house so it’s an unexpected surprise. (that one is my personal favorite to do!) Let someone with fewer groceries than yourself go ahead of you in line. Find opportunities to give someone a genuine compliment. Write a positive review of a business you like (especially a small business, where the reviews really matter!). Pick up the phone and call someone you haven’t talked to in a while, just to say hi and to see how they are doing. The opportunities are absolutely endless, and the best part is, those random acts of kindness will lift your spirits and make YOU feel good, as well. It’s a win-win situation.

What other random acts of kindness do you practice? And what is one of the most memorable random acts of kindness that someone did for you?
