Undeniably Chosen by Shelly Crane Release Blitz







Ava has watched her parents, Caleb and Maggie, live the perfect
fairy tale, the perfect love story, played out in front of her eyes her entire
life. Her family is love, life, and happiness. The Jacobsons are everything a
family should be and Ava is loved and well taken care of. But the one thing
that’s missing from her life is the one thing she’s waited for every day, the
one thing her kind knows will make them complete, the one thing they thought
was gone and lost forever.

Her significant.

Seth has lived with the Watsons his entire life. They’re the
only family he knows, but he knows that there are things they keep from him. He
knows that they lie and they do unspeakable evil, things from when he was a
child that he can barely remember that cling to the edges of his memory. He
barely remembers his real mother and all he knows is what he’s told. He doesn’t
know what to trust. He wants to believe that the Watsons love and care for him,
have his best interest at heart, but isn’t so sure of that anymore when he
finally—after a lifetime of waiting for her—meets his soulmate, and the
Watson’s first act is to try to take her away from him.

The Virtuoso worlds collide, hearts are exposed, humans are
endangered, and the lives of Seth and Ava are changed forever. They’ll have to
love without judgment or reservation, they’ll have to be wise and accepting
beyond their years, they’ll have to forgive for things before they’ve even
happened, they’ll have to trust without seeing, have faith without knowing, and
they’ll have to light their own way in the dark when everyone else is blind to
show them the way. And more than anything else…

… they’ll fight like hell to keep each other.






When I entered the kitchen where the breakfast nook was, everyone
stopped eating and talking, which made me feel so uncomfortable until Seth
stood up so fast that his chair almost tipped over behind him.
He let his out in a slow, low noise before… “Wow.”
Mom chuckled and leaned back with a smile, clapping twice. “And
that, ladies and gentleman, is how it’s done.”
My neck was so pink I could feel it, and Seth—realizing he’d just
practically fallen at my feet in front of everyone—smiled that smile that tore
through me like tissue paper and then turned it on my mother. She sat up
straighter and looked at me with wide eyes.
‘I know’, I mouthed as I moved toward him.
“Eat, Ave,” Dad said, knowing what I was doing.
“I’m going to be late. And it’s the last day of school before
winter break.”
“Gee, I wonder why you’re late—” Rodney began. I punched his arm.
“I’ll just take this.” I grabbed a biscuit, stuck a piece of
sausage in it, and wrapped it in a napkin. “I’ll eat it,” I promised.
“I’ll make sure she eats,” Seth told them. Mom came and hugged
him, telling him something in his ear and he nodded. “Thanks, Mrs. Jacobson. I
will. I promise.”
Dad patted his shoulder and told him to make sure to stop by
anytime, no invitation needed. Dad went to the counter and started making me a
coffee in a to-go cup. I knew he was doing it, because I saw him pull the
Hazelnut creamer from the fridge. But I saw him pull out a second to-go cup…and
he made it black. How did he already know that Seth took his coffee black?!
“What is going on here?” I muttered under my breath.
Seth took both of the cups from my dad and guided me with an arm
around my back. “Thanks for the coffee and breakfast. Bye, guys.”
“Bye, Seth!” Mom called cheerily.
I looked at the snow and the porch as we came outside to make sure
that everything was the same, that I hadn’t entered an episode of a TV show of
some alternate reality or something.
I looked at Seth. “If you tell me your name is The Doctor,
I’m outta here.”
He laughed loudly. “And now you’re a “Doctor Who” fan? Freaking
adorable,” he mumbled under his breath. “Your parents are awesome, Ava.” He was
so sincere.
“I was worried I was going to have to save you.”
“No need.” He used his elbow to swipe the snow off of a spot and
then set the coffees on his hood. The truck was already cranked so he must have
the kind where you do it from the key fob because there were no footprints in
the snow. He opened the door, helped me in, and then got the coffees, handing
mine to me. “They were awesome about not making me feel weird. Even Rodney
wasn’t too bad.”
He laughed before shutting my door.
My dress wasn’t too short, but I did notice how it rose up
mid-thigh when I sat down. But the leggings kept the ensemble decent. And warm.
The truck was so warm, but I still slid over as
soon as he shut my door. When he got in and saw how close I was, his grin was
adorable. He got in and turned the heat on even more, looking at my legs and
shutting his eyes for a few seconds too long. “You’re not too cold with those
on?”
“Leggings?” I laughed.
“Is that what they’re called?” he half-growled as he backed out
and got on the road. “They should be called evil.”
“They’re just like pants, just thinner. Jeans, just not made of
quite the same thing. Jeggings.”
He laughed and shook his head. “As long as you’re warm,
sweetheart, call ‘em whatever you want.” He looked at my legs again and then
away with a little groan. “I’ll just call them evil because I can see every
inch of your legs in those things.”
My heart practically did the Tennessee Waltz behind my ribs. “And
that’s evil?” I squeaked.
“Evil,” he reiterated and smiled.

The Light House by Jason Luke Release Blitz



Title - The light house

Author - Jason Luke

Genre - New Adult, Contemporary Romance





‘The light house’ - A love story.
Art has always been Blake McGrath’s life. Scarred by tragedy, he’s hiding from the world on a lonely beach, struggling with loss and bitter regrets.

Connie is a disillusioned art dealer with troubled relationship issues of her own. Through her sudden mysterious appearance, Blake once again returns to the craft he has mastered to prove to himself that there is hope, that redemption is possible… and that love can last.









I truly fell in love with this book. Blake had me feeling empathy for him and I am happy that he ran across Connie. I was emotionally spent after reading this book and had to sit back and just get my mind back together. This is a MUST read and a twist on Jason style of writing.

Synopsis
Tristan Loren is the first to admit he’s lived a privileged life.
However, the top schools, the best games and phones and cars, the finest of whatever his heart desired has come with strangers yelling for his attention and camera flashes in his face.
His classmates have visions of college life in the fall following senior year, while his fantasy is a normal existence. Whatever normalcy is, he’s sure it’s not graduating with honors--and his virginity.
Aside from having a paranoid mom who has made it her mission to see that he’s never alone with a girl, he wants his first time to be with someone who doesn’t know him as Jack Storm-of-the-multi-platinum-Jackal Junior.
Chasing the vision of a woman and a world who doesn’t know of him takes him from the sunshiny suburbs of Dallas to the snowy streets of Detroit.
When he sees Sash in person, the girl he’s texted, phoned, and Skyped for the better part of a year, he’s drawn to her secret smile, and the tattooed half sleeves decorating her arms. Her fiery, fun personality and musical skills make her seem the soul mate he’s been seeking.
But Sash has her own secrets—secrets that make him wish he’d never met her. Falling for Sash and finding his own identity may cost him more than what’s in his wallet.
A Shit Storm can stand alone but for fans of Six Silver Strings Series, this novel includes scenes with characters from G-Strings and D-Strings with several appearances of Jack and Marissa Storm.



REVIEW

Just finished Tristan story of his journey to finding himself. This was a nice book that showcases a privileged child off on a road to finding the lessons he might have disliked growing up is coming in handing when the security is no longer there. Life isn't all apples and oranges but you have to find where you fit and live it to your ability.



A Shit Storm Excerpt

“Are you going to say anything? Or just let me keep babbling about how sorry I am?”
“Sorry? This is the first I’ve heard the word sorry.”
“Don’t be a dick. I’m sorry, okay? You hear that?”
I’m trying to protect my heart now when I’ve seen how easily she can crush it. But the emotion in her tone gets to me, and I peer into her face, trying to read her shadowy features. I hunker down so close I can feel her breath, and I pull her waist to me. “Say it again…”
“I’m sorry, Trey. I’m so sorry.”
“Not that. The other part…”
She stills, and I feel, more than see, her confused gaze on my face. “The other part?”
“Yeah. I never heard that word before from your pretty lips.” And without waiting for her to reply, I kiss those luscious lips. Because the next time I hear that word, I want her to be begging me, not cursing me.
