Former soldier Logan Bridges never imagined he would go from serving his country to helping raise a house full of children after a devastating family loss.

Dealing with his rowdy siblings and cousins proves to be almost as treacherous as the battlefields he left behind. And though he’s committed to making it work, he soon finds he’s in over his head.

Until someone from Logan’s past, steps in to help.

Mollie has always been independent, but finds herself growing attached to the family, including Logan, and discovering there’s more to life than working and solitude.

Logan and Mollie quickly form a strong bond, and when attraction brings them closer, they agree getting involved wouldn’t be good for the children. But when they both struggle to keep the blurry line of friendship between them, Mollie won’t take that step unless Logan can open up and face his painful past.

Review: Broken Destiny (Hidden Academy #1) by Serena Lindahl

Length:228 pages

Published: October 30, 2019

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Synopsis

Having spent the last seven years in an orphanage, Zosia is shocked when someone tells her she’s a sphinx and the last guardian of the sentient library of Supernaturals. The elite academy which houses the powerful library rejects her because she isn’t perfect, but she knows instantly that the library is where she belongs. She ignores the academy’s decree and gathers others around her – four guardians who are just as perfectly imperfect as she is.

But her powers, her ability to shift, and her strength are tied up in the memories she can’t bear to access – memories of torture as a young girl – horrible acts which made her the way she is. When the library is all that stands between two ignorant factions trying to cause a war, it’s up to her and her guardians to prevent it. But first, she has to face her worst fears – including believing in herself.

***This book is a reverse harem, why choose, slow-burn adventure. Some topics may be triggering and/or of a sensitive nature. ***

My thoughts 💭

This was my first book by the author and I loved it. Everyone was unique in their own way! Zosia was so accepting of her new guardians no matter their “flaws”. She’s kinda fierce and I love her! Garrett, Avery, Bren and Kodi adore her and I can’t wait to see where their relationship goes! This was an enjoyable read and I can’t wait to read whatever is next!

Release Blitz: Wrong Side Of Wright by Sade Rena



Title: Wrong Side of Wright 
Author: Sade Rena 
Genre: Romance, Suspense 








He’s handsome, he’s charming… he’s a liar.

He’d put me through so much—broke me until I barely recognized my reflection in the mirror. Six years he lied about being married. Six years of my life stolen—wasted from my own stupidity. But I healed—or at least I thought I had. 

I got one year… Three hundred and sixty something odd days before he showed up at my door… shot in the shoulder… begging me for help… showing me that everything I thought I knew was the farthest from reality I’d ever get.

But then I was given a choice…

Trust him and survive, or fend for myself. 

Has loving him proved to have been the biggest mistake of my life?

**If cheating or the mention of it bothers you, you may not want to read this book.

Book Blitz: Gouster Girl by David E. Gumpert

GOUSTER GIRL

by David E. Gumpert
Publication Date: December 9, 2019
Genres: YA, Interracial Teen Romance, Historical Fiction, Coming of Age, Romance

SYNOPSIS

Maybe because they are young and innocent, cute black Valerie Davis and nerdy white Jeffrey Stark are late to realize that falling in love on Chicago’s South Side in 1963 is a highly risky business for an interracial couple. At first, they help each other out of tough racial fixes—he saves her from attack at an all-white amusement park and she saves him from injury in a racial brawl at their high school. But as their romance becomes more serious, so do the racial dangers. White police target Valerie as a prostitute and black gang members see Jeffrey as trying to sexually exploit a black girl. Seemingly inevitably, the blossoming romance collides head on with the realities of Northern-style racism one hot summer afternoon at one of Chicago’s most beautiful Lake Michigan beaches, when a racial protest turns ugly, confronting the couple with terrible choices.

Gouster Girl vividly depicts the raw racism so prevalent during the early 1960s, which ushered in decades of gang violence that turned sections of Chicago into the urban killing fields they are today. Gouster Girl opens in the summer of 1963 with the white Stark family tearfully moving its belongings onto a moving truck in front of the tidy South Shore neighborhood apartment building they love, just blocks from where Michelle Obama would grow up. As they load up the truck, 16-year-old Jeff and his parents argue yet again about the racial fears and fantasies that are leading them to abandon South Shore, with its delis and shuls and beautiful beaches. Through the eyes of Jeff, Gouster Girl then takes us back to the unlikely racial violence that led to his romance with Valerie and how she variously teases and embarrasses him to confront his most deeply held racial prejudices. Valerie introduces Jeff to the highs and lows of her life– to black music and dancing, as well as police corruption, job discrimination, misguided school tracking systems and housing discrimination that keeps blacks separate and unequal.

A makeout session in an isolated section of Jackson Park leads the couple into a confrontation with police, which highlights for both the realities of what we today refer to as “white privilege.” It also pushes the Stark family more fully toward a decision about whether to join other whites in fleeing South Shore.

This highly evocative coming-of-age story will alternately charm, anger terrify, and upset readers as they travel back to a time that was seemingly simpler, but was also blunt in its racial and religious prejudices.

ABOUT DAVID E. GUMPERT

David E. Gumpert grew up on the South Side of Chicago, in South Shore and Hyde Park. In the years since graduating from the University of Chicago, he has attended Columbia Journalism School and worked as a reporter for The Wall Street Journal and an editor for the Harvard Business Review and Inc. magazine. He has also authored ten nonfiction books on a variety of subjects—from entrepreneurship and small business management to food politics.

He spent much of the last half-dozen years going back to his own roots in Chicago to research and write the historical novel, Gouster Girl. While some of it stems from his own experiences growing up in South Shore and Hyde Park, he also conducted significant additional research to complete the book in late 2019.

All I want is to keep a low profile, but day one, I make an enemy of the most powerful Fae in the academy.

The Winter Prince is arrogant, cruel, and apparently also my Fae keeper. Meaning I’m in for months of torture.

But it only gets worse. Something dark and terrible looms over the academy. Humans are dying, ancient vendettas are resurfacing, and the courts are more bloodthirsty than ever.

What can one mortal girl do in a world full of gorgeous monsters?

Fight back with everything I have–and try not to fall in love in the process.

My thoughts 💭

This was an enjoyable story with a twist. Summer is caught stealing and becoming a shadow for four years is her punishment. She is not one to take crap from anyone and I liked her. I can’t wait to read what’s going to happen in year two with Summer now that she’s aware of the truth.
