From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a new novel about risking everything for love—and finding your heart somewhere between the truth and lies.

Auburn Reed has her entire life mapped out. Her goals are in sight and there’s no room for mistakes. But when she walks into a Dallas art studio in search of a job, she doesn’t expect to find a deep attraction to the enigmatic artist who works there, Owen Gentry.

For once, Auburn takes a risk and puts her heart in control, only to discover that Owen is keeping some major secrets from coming out. The magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything important to Auburn, and the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it.

The last thing Owen wants is to lose Auburn, but he can’t seem to convince her that truth is sometimes as subjective as art. All he would have to do to save their relationship is confess. But in this case, the confession could be much more destructive than the actual sin…

No one deserves you like I do.”... “No one sees you like I do.”... “No one understands you the way I do.” … “No one makes your heart beat like I do” ... “And no one else deserves to be inside you if they can't get through here first.”

Gah. This book. I can't even. First of all, I've LOVED Post secrets forever and I've loved Colleen Hoover which seems to be forever now. When you unite the two forces into a masterpiece of art, you are blown away. Now I know Colleen didn't use any actual Post Secrets, but the concept and the fact that her own fans gave her the confessions is truly astonishing. The only thing I wish I was able to see while I was reading the book was the artwork, which wasn't in the ARC. (total sad face here) However, once I get my hands on a physical copy I can read it again with the photo's and get such a different experience from this novel.

How do you retain faith in humanity after reading these every day? “Easy” I say. “It actually makes me appreciate people more, knowing we all have this amazing ability to put on a front. Especially to those closest to us.”

As always, the characters in Colleen's book are absolutely flawed and flawless at the same time. The characters of Auburn and Owen were simple yet complex. I honestly can't say much about this without giving away a ton of information that would ruin the book for you as a reader, so I won't. I will say that secrets are crazy, and the emotions and heartfelt moments that you're about to read will rip your heart out, sew it back together, and then maybe – if you're lucky... put it back together again.

This is what I want you to remember, Auburn, “I don't want you to remember what it feels like when I'm inside you. I want you to remember how it feels when I look at you.” … I want you to remember how your heart reacts every time I kiss you,” … I want you to remember my hands, and how they can't stop touching you.” And I need you to remember that anyone can make love. But I'm the only one who deserves to make love to you.”

This story is absolutely beautiful. The ultimate feels you get while reading this is unfathomable. I mean it IS a Colleen Hoover book. Face it. Get your tissue box out, put some padding on your kindle or book, and be prepared. Oh yes, I'm telling you that there will be moments of pure anger when you either WILL or WANT to throw your reading device of choice at the wall. Don't do it though... cause then you won't finish the story! The underlying tones of sarcasm and angsty moments will leave you with a cocky smile on your face, along with the tear stained tissues. Do yourself a favor and Fall in love with Owen and Auburn. You won't regret it.

[Cover Reveal] Snow White lies

“Evil poisons everyone. Period. Our mouths water when we sink our teeth into what we have always craved. Surrendering to our desires by biting off delectable piece of the forbidden fruit is nothing more than a meager confession: Poison tastes sinfully sweet,”—Confessions of the Big Apple Debutante, by blogger Miss Snow White.

[ROCKIN' Blog Tour] Members Only

Members Only: Secret Societies, Sects, and Cults Exposed!

Throughout human history, people have banded together to pass on traditions, climb the social ladder, and often just have a good time. And sometimes, keeping other people out is part of the fun. (Every hot club needs a velvet rope, after all.) But some of these groups have proved so exclusive and secretive that we on the outside can’t resist some speculation. Wouldn’t you like to know what they’re really up to? No need for secret handshakes or passwords—Members Only is your all-access guide to the secret societies, clandestine cults, and exclusive associations that you’ve always wondered about.

Profiling over fifty groups, from the centuries-old Freemasons to the snooty Skull and Bones Society to a club just for magicians, this book reveals the secrets of these mysterious organizations—and even tells you how to join up. Get ready to go underground and explore secret worlds that are sometimes shocking, sometimes frightening, and always fascinating.

(Members Only: Secret Societies, Sects, and Cults – Exposed! / by Julie Tibbott/ Published by Zest Books and distributed by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt / ISBN-13: 978-1-936976-52-2 / $14.99 Paperback; 220 pages, Ages 12+)

I've always been super intrigued by the whole secret society thing. This novel gave me an inner look at some of the more elite clubs and society. The author definitely had their the investigator shoes on while researching for this book. I mean seriously, kudos. I'm sure many people have heard of the Skull and Bones club, or the Free-masons. However, there are soooo many more clubs and secret societys out there that have yet to be discovered by investigators. I for one was flaborghasted by some of the societies in this novel. 

I'm quite in awe of the authors talent driven research. The rare photographs that are included in the novel make everything that much more real. Not only did I not realize how many of these societies were tied into other things, but I also found out more about conspiracy theroies and politics. Now to be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of Politics. However this novel is a definite must read for anyone who is curious as to what really goes on behind closed doors. 

 This novel definitely brings some shock factors to as some of the initiation rituals to some of these clubs. I mean seriously!? I understand how wanting to be one of the "elite" must feel, but is it really worth the price you have to pay (metaphorically and physically speaking)? There are so many examples to which I could give you from this book, including the Disney Club 33, however I don't want to spoil the book for you. I actually got my husband to read parts of the book, and he hates reading! That's how enthralled with the novel he was. He may have skipped a few different societies and focused on the ones that interested him, but it doesn't matter. Once you find out about one, you totally want to read more about another. 

Members Only is  thought provoking and eye opening.  I most definitely recommend this to any reader, especially those who tend to have conspiracy theories. :)

[Blog Tour] Every Heart

Author: LK Collins
Sequel to EVERY SOUL
Genre: Erotic Romance
Love hurts. Life hurts.

But without the pain, there is no bliss.

I found bliss.

Then it was all taken away.

And though it hurt like hell to move on, I had to.

I learned to love again only because of Bain.

I found my bliss again.

Then in a split second, everything was put into jeopardy.

My world crashed down around me and this time I was faced with the hardest decision of my life, a decision I never dreamt of making.

A choice that seemed impossible.

With no good outcome.

That would hurt everyone I loved no matter what I did.

I didn’t want to make it. I couldn’t choose between my two loves.

So I fought the decision with everything I had, avoiding it until…

I was forced to decide.

Start from the beginning with EVERY SOUL...

Author: LK Collins
Genre: Erotic Romance
When you lose the one person who grounds your existence, your whole world changes.

In life, it is said that everything happens for a reason. If that’s true, how can you explain death? Especially when it happens to someone so young, so beautiful, and so innocent? My name is Bain Adams, and I struggle with these thoughts every day. I’ve been through hell and back, somehow surviving the unimaginable. My sister took her life six months ago, and now, what’s left is a shell of the man I once was, a shadow of the person I used to be. Do I miss that life? Absolutely. But I miss her more, every day. I pray time will ease the pain and help my suffering while I search for the answers…but so far, nothing.

Happiness is something I knew so long ago, and now it’s nothing but a faint, distant recollection of the life I once had. My name is Arion LaSalle, and seven months ago my life was shredded to pieces when my fiancé disappeared while deployed. He never came home, burning a hindrance of pain and agony within my soul. For so long, I lived my life believing everything happens for a reason, until now. ‘Cause none of it makes any sense. Why Nate? Why only him? Since getting through each breath is a struggle, I put on a fake persona, pretending I’m someone I’m not, living my life recklessly. Because for me, it was all taken far too soon.

[Blog Tour] The Consequences of Sin


Displaying cos.jpg

When the sun disappeared, the world was cast in shadows, hiding the evil that lay in wait. When it was dark, I hunted. The shadows caressed my body as I did things I could never do in the light of day. Eighteen-year-old Bree Bowen has spent her entire life training and working as one of her father’s assassins. Fear has kept her and her best friend, Wes, under her father’s thumb—until now. When Wes takes matters into his own hands, securing Bree a new identity and a plane ticket to America, he gives her the one chance she’s been desperately seeking. Learning to live a new life isn’t easy. Add in her new roommate, Reid, who just happens to be a stripper, and things start to get a little crazy. Falling for a man has never been part of her plan, but she can’t seem to stay away from Reid. When Bree’s past comes crashing back into her life, secrets that she’s fought to keep hidden are revealed, and she’s forced to choose between Reid and the life she could have with him, or Wes, the one man who has always loved her unconditionally. Regardless of her choice, she must learn the consequences of sin.

 This book will be a standalone.
