Weekend Read

by Tina Reber

Last week I did not do a weekend read because I was in the middle of reading Tina Reber's second book LOVE UNREHEARSED.   I wanted to include both books in my weekend read, so this week you get a double shot of fabulous reading.


Taryn Mitchell is a bar owner  in Seaport, Rhode Island who believes men should be kept at a safe distance.  Ryan Christenesen just wants to act.  But the demands of fans, the paparazzi, and the studio make that a challenge.  
When Ryan slips into Taryn's bar one day to escape a mob of fans and photographer's, he finds someone who may like him not because of his fame, but despite it.
Their bond grows, but can it survive all of the obstacles that come along with a life of fame?


Taryn's and Ryan's story continues as they find themselves making a commitment to each other that not everyone is happy about.  There's no script to follow for them while they try to figure out how a bar owner from Rhode Island fits into the glitz and glam of Hollywood.  These two are thrown into real life and must risk everything if they want their love to last.

Enjoy two great stories that give a little peak into the not so glamorous side of being a famous movie star.

Have a great weekend full of WONDERFUL reads!

Weekend Read

By Molly McAdams

Eighteen year old Harper is off to college in San Diego.  After being raised by a career Marine father and the men in his unit, she's ready for new experiences.  Her roommate is happy to introduce her to what she's been missing.  
Soon Harper finds herself in love with her boyfriend Brandon and her roommate's older brother Chase, who happen to live in the same house.  Both adore and would do anything for Harper, including standing back if it means she'll be happy.  
Her new friend, gorgeous guys, parties, and her first experience with a real family life make Harper's year almost perfect, until one weekend changes everything.  A temptation that's acted upon sends everyone on a crazy ride full of pain, tears, happiness, and love.  Take a chance on TAKING CHANCES by Molly McAdams.  You won't be disappointed.

Sorry this weekend read is a little late, but I promise you it's worth the wait.  I stayed up late into the night reading this one and thought I'd fall asleep at work the next day...TOTALLY WORTH IT!

Weekend Read

by S.C. Stephens

     Denny was everything Kiera ever wanted in a boyfriend.  He was loving, tender, and completely devoted to her.  When Denny gets his dream job, Kiera leaves her school, home, and family to follow him.  After being there only a short time, a work obligation forces Denny to leave Kiera alone with their house mate and local rock star Kellan Kyle.  
     At first, Kiera leans on Kellan as a friend to help chase away her loneliness.  However, a phone call with Denny one night sets a chain of events in motion that will change all of their lives forever.
     When you're finished with THOUGHTLESS by S.C. Stephens, pick up the sequel EFFORTLESS.

Back to School

The most wonderful time of year for parents has arrived.  Their children have gone back to school.  This is an exciting and busy time for families.  As you adjust to your new schedules, make sure you still do the things you enjoy.  Here are a few things I've planned for the upcoming months:

  1. My writing workout (see previous post) has been adjusted for my changing schedule, but I'm making progress on my story and plan to finish it before the end of the year (fingers crossed).  
  2. I recently signed up for an online writing class that I'm super excited about.  
  3. I've added several books to my reading list for the fall that I will hopefully love enough to share with you on my weekend read posts.  

What are some of the things you have planned for fall that you're looking forward to?

Don't forget about the Weekend Read Giveaway-BEAUTIFUL DISASTER by Jamie McGuire.  Make a comment on that post and earn a chance to win the book.  The winner will be announced on Friday, September 7th.  GOOD LUCK!
