Happy Friday all! I am starting a new feature / type of post (what do you call it?) on the blog monthly called Blogger Love.
One of the best things in the writing world for me has got to be the relationships I have formed over the past few years. The authors, readers, publishers, bloggers and many others have made this experience so much fun.
Because I am a blogger myself, I have a soft spot for other bloggers and want to share some of those blogs with you. Some have taught me how to navigate the book blogging world and how to work with authors and publishers. Some have taught me about certain features on blogs and what might work best for me. Some of just simply offered me their friendship. And some I may not know personally but their blogs have thoroughly entertained me. So, once per month you will see a Blogger Love post where I feature a different blog that has touched me in some way. Stay tuned!
Do you have a favorite blog you follow? What makes it a favorite?

Playing it safe never felt so risky.
Erin Watters is her small town’s resident wild child—she doesn’t do boring, and after having her heart annihilated, she definitely doesn’t do relationships. Her friends have other ideas, though, and when they throw down a matchmaking challenge, impulsive Erin can’t ignore it. Even when the annoyingly hot Troy Strieber accepts the matchmaker role…
I enjoyed The Lie by Ashley Fontainne although I am not typically a paranormal fan. The author makes her characters very real and from her opening to the closing I was intrigued by where the story was taking me.
Karmen is a very likable and believable character and she takes the reader along with her on the journey to discovering whether her writing is truly hers or the result of something evil at work. I must say that usually I am pretty good at figuring out the mystery side of a story and I am not surprised by the ending. However, this book took me completely by surprise in terms of the twists and turns and I enjoyed the ride.
Okay, so I am hooked. After reading A Touch of Midnight and now Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian, I am hooked on The Midnight Breed Series. I don’t read paranormal often, but am glad I found this series to fuel me in between the other romance genres I read when I am looking for a little vampire action.
Kiss of Midnight is the first full length story in The Midnight Breed Series and features Lucan and Gabrielle. It also lays the foundation for all the world building for the series within this vampire nation. The Breed Warriors are at war with the Rogue Vampires. Good versus evil.
Lucan, the leader of the Breed Warriors is strong, respected and carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. He has a lot of demons to fight and doesn’t ask for help with any of them. He sees himself as the leader that needs to watch over and protect his kind – not the other way around. When human Gabrielle crosses his path, all bets are off. He is drawn to her and finds her frustratingly comforting.
Mr. Good Enough by Jamie Farrell is heartwarming contemporary romance story. I read the book summary and thought I knew what I was getting into. When you read enough romance books you start to see trends and at the beginning of the book I thought, “I bet it is going to go like this….” and then it didn’t. It was so much better than I expected.
In Mr. Good Enough we meet Trent Sawyer, the town’s high school basketball star and Maddie Mason, geeky girl who had a crush on Trent in high school. They are all grown up now.Trent left town for reasons you will read about while Maddie stuck around. In the opening scene Trent is back and boy is the town all up in arms about it. After all, they all thought he was dead…
I am over at Magical Musings today talking about Library Love! Head on over and check it out.
In Mad About You by Joan Kilby, Cassy Morris gets an SOS call from one of her dearest childhood friends, Scott Thornton. Scott is described as a hot geek, who is set to have his nanotechnology company skyrocket him to stardom, if another company doesn’t get their first. He needs Cassy’s help. Since she has the flexibility being the her own boss(tax accountant)she sets out to help him. The problem is she has not seen him in over a year, and in that time he has only gotten better. It doesn’t help that she always had a crush on him and her past attempt letting him know failed miserably.
The story moves quickly once Cassy gets out to Washington and these friends quickly go from working roommates to fabricated engaged couple. What is problematic is Cassy wants to believe the lie but feels Scott just doesn’t see her that way. We learn though, that Scott struggles with his feelings for Cassy too, but because of old demons from being abandoned by his father, he just doesn’t see himself in a relationship and he doesn’t want to lose his best friend. Well you know what they say about best laid plans.
