Lasting Summer Release Day!!!

 

 

 

Summer Jones thought she lost Nat Donovan, the boy she had always had a crush on since she could remember, when he went off on a mission to find his father, the founder and CEO of Donovan Dynamics, the billion dollar security and intelligence corporation who is now protecting her from the stalker who has attempted to kill her twice.

He had always been her rock, had always been there for her, but now Nat has disappeared. According to Donovan Dynamics, it was for good.

Could Summer continue on? Could Nat’s playboy one-night stand legend brother Drew Donovan live up to Nat’s legacy as the family’s perfect son, as the one who could eventually run Donovan Dynamics? With Nat gone, could he finally get Summer to commit to him with all her heart and soul?

All the secrets, all the heartaches, come out in Lasting Summer as the Donovans and Summer learn to deal with the truth about Nat, Drew, and Summer that will test each others’ love to each other and to family.

Lasting Summer is part of the Loving Summer Series appropriate for age 18+.

My Review

This has a very interesting concept with some fun characters. So what if you found out you had some powers you never knew about, and there are a few people like you who have other powers and they use those powers to save and help people. Yep like Batman, except no one knows they exist. LOL

So, Blue is a looser, and seriously, I thought I would hate her. She started out a wasted space, lost girl, and when she finally got her ass in gear, she turned into a much better person and a likable character. She’s somewhat of a mess, and she has one of the most powerful gifts out of everyone. She of course goes out drinking to pretend her life doesn’t suck one night, and meets Kasey, who touches her and they stop time. It was quite an experience. And that’s how she meets Kasey and his crew of Renegade heroes. She needed a lot of pushing, and an attitude adjustment, and at the end I cried for her, but she turned around enough that I say good character growth.

Kasey and his group are all a bunch of people who found each other because of their powers. I liked some of them, I didn’t like some of them, and yet, they have some fascinating powers that do amazing things. It’s such a way of living that’s gritty. Kasey was a nice guy, but I sometimes wanted him to maybe scream or throw a fit, something, LOL though I did stay team Kasey all the way 🙂

I liked the plot line and the twists at the end, especially revolving around Blue’s mom. Yep, I can’t say I cried about that though. I liked it and I look forward to the next book. 4 PAWS!

About the Author:

Rose Shababy and her family reside in eastern Washington State. Rose grew up in the Northwest but swears she’s going to move to warmer climates someday. She’s claimed this for over 20 years, however, and has yet to move more than 75 miles away from her mother.

Rose has a deep love of all things Star Trek and yearns to travel the heavens, as well as an intense desire to be bitten by a radioactive spider.

Unfortunately she sucks at science and math so she hasn’t been able bring her dreams to life, instead living vicariously through books, comics, television and film. She hopes to someday make a million dollars so she can afford to buy her way to the international space station, but she’d settle for being able to fly around the world and leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Rose also loves to cook and worked for years in a gourmet Italian grocery and deli where she learned to hone her skills. She prepares culinary masterpieces for her family, but fervently wishes the dishes would wash themselves. Especially now that her dishwashers/children are nearly grown and only one still lives at home.
Rose likes to use her free time wisely. For instance, she likes to daydream, will often read for hours until she falls asleep on the couch with an electric blanket and a warm tabby cat curled up on her hip, as well as spending cozy weekend days watching Syfy movies like Sharknado and Mega Piranha with her husband.

If Rose were a cartoon animal, she’d prefer to be a wise old owl or a sleek and sexy jaguar, but in reality she’d probably be a myopic mole with coke-bottle glasses.

Happy Book Birthday TORN w a Giveaway!!

TORN (A Fire Born Novel, #2)

TORN, the second installment of the Fire Born Novels by Laney McMann, has launched.

PLUS, there’s a Giveaway!

TORN (Book #2)Find Max.

That’s all Layla cares about. Not healing from the Fomore attack. Not finding answers to how she survived a fall that nearly killed her. Nothing will stop her. She will find him. She’ll even pair up with an overbearing Fallen Angel who’s hell bent on making everything harder than it needs to be if she has to.

Protect Layla.

For Max, nothing else matters. Not the bruises covering his body. Not the pain radiating from his broken bones. Not even his hands tied behind his back. He will find a way to save Layla, and the Fomore will pay if they’ve hurt her.

Every. Single. One of them.

In the second installment of The Fire Born trilogy, a new breed of villain looms—one Layla and Max will never suspect, and this killer has nothing to lose. Better yet, with Max and Layla’s deaths, victory is in the grip of the enemy.

Will Max and Layla find each other in time, or is it already too late for them both?

Releasing September 8, 2014

TIED, Book #1

perf5.250x8.000.inddBLURB:

Normal people don’t believe their nightmares stalk them. They don’t fall in love with boys who don’t exist, either.

Seventeen-year-old Layla Labelle, though, is far from normal. Her delusions walk the earth. Her hallucinations hunt her, and her skin heats to a burn every time her anger flares.

Or is that all in her head?

Layla doesn’t know what to believe any more because if none of that’s true, Max MacLarnon must be an illusion, and her heart must still be broken.

No matter how much she wants to believe Max is real, doing so would mean everything else is, too. How, then, is that possible?

The answers lie in an age-old legend the supernatural aren’t prepared to reveal, and with a curse that could tear Layla and Max apart forever—if it doesn’t kill them both first.

In TIED, book one in the Fire Born trilogy, learning the truth will mean fighting an arsenal of demons, and being with Max will put Layla on a path toward her own destruction.

Just how far will Layla go to protect the one she loves?

The answer may never be far enough … away.
