don't look back


Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all—popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it’s one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took “mean girl” to a whole new level, and it’s clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She’s getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she’s falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her—even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn’t just buried deep inside of Sam’s memory—someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

“This engrossing thriller packs a heady atmospheric punch with plenty of theatrical scares,” Kirkus Reviews

“Armentrout has written another winner. From the first page to the last, she builds both terror and confusion to the point where readers will be hooked and on the edge of their seat. This standalone contains all of Armentrout’s usual trademarks– a strong and determined heroine, witty comments and hot guys–but she adds in an extra layer by ratcheting up the suspense to the highest degree and follows it up with an ending no one will see coming.” RT BOOK REVIEWS 4 1/2 Stars TOP PICK

teal excerpt

I didn’t recognize the name on the street sign. Nothing about the rural road looked familiar or friendly. Tall, imposing trees and overgrown weeds choked the front of the dilapidated home. Windows were boarded up. There was a gaping hole where the front door had been. I shivered, wanting to be far away from here…wherever here was. Walking felt harder than it should be, and I stumbled off the chilly asphalt, wincing as sharp gravel dug into my feet.

My bare feet?

I stopped and looked down. Chipped pink nail polish peeked through the dirt…and blood. Mud caked the legs of my pants, leaving the hems stiff. It made sense, seeing as how I wasn’t wearing any shoes, but the blood…I didn’t understand why there was blood staining the knees of my jeans.

My vision clouded and dulled, as if a gray film had been dropped over my eyes. As I stared at the weathered asphalt under my feet, large and smooth rocks replaced the tiny stones. Something dark and oily seeped over the rocks, slipping through the cracks. Sucking in a sharp gasp, I blinked and the image was gone. Hands trembling, I raised them. They were also covered with dirt and scratches. My nails were broken, bloodied. A silver ring wrapped, encased in soil, around my thumb. Air froze in my chest as my gaze crawled over my arms. The sleeves of my sweater were torn, revealing pale flesh covered in bruises and gashes. My legs started to shake as I swayed forward. I tried to remember how this had happened, but my head was empty—a black void where nothing existed.

A car drove by, coasting to a stop a few feet in front of me. Somewhere in the trenches of my subconscious, I recognized the flashing red and blue lights as a source of safety. Elegantly scrawled along the black-and-gray side of the cruiser were the words ADAMS COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT.

Adams County? A flash of familiarity came and went. The driver’s door opened, and a deputy stepped out. He said something into the radio on his shoulder before he looked at me.

“Miss?” He started around the cruiser, taking tentative steps. He looked young for a deputy. Barely out of high school and able to carry a gun seemed wrong somehow. Was I in high school? I didn’t know. “We’ve received some calls into dispatch concerning you,” he said gently. “Are you okay?”

I tried to respond, but only a hoarse squeak came out. Clearing my throat, I winced as the motion scratched and pulled. “I…I don’t know.”

“Okay.” The deputy held up his hands as he approached me, as if I were a skittish deer about to bolt. “My name is Deputy Rhode. I’m here to help you. Do you know what you’re doing out here?”

“No.” Knots formed in my belly. I didn’t even know where here was.

His smile strained. “What’s your name?”

My name? Everyone knew their name, but as I stared at the deputy, I couldn’t answer his question. The knots started twisting more. “I don’t…I don’t know what my name is.”

He blinked, and the smile was completely gone. “You don’t remember anything?”

I tried again, concentrating on the empty space between my ears. That was how it felt.

And I knew that wasn’t good. My eyes started to tear up.

“Miss, it’s okay. We’ll get you taken care of.” He reached out, lightly taking hold of my arm. “We’ll get this sorted.”

Deputy Rhode led me around the back of his cruiser. I didn’t want to sit behind the Plexiglas, because I knew that wasn’t good. Only bad people sat behind the glass in police cruisers. I wanted to object, but before I could say anything, he settled me into the seat and wrapped a coarse blanket around my shoulders. Before he locked me in the bad part of the car, he knelt and smiled reassuringly.

“Everything’s going to be okay.”

But I knew he was lying, trying to make me feel better. It didn’t work. How could everything be okay when I didn’t know my own name?

I got a copy of this book from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange of an honest review

Let me just start by saying, WOW!!! This book was AMAZING. It made me cry, it made me laugh and it made me fall in love a little bit.

Rachel Shears has had a hard life. Living with a alcoholic mother who doesn’t give a shit, using her body and whatever attention she gets to survive. Things have been far from a fairy-tale for Rachel. Once day she decides to take care of all her pain once and for all and commit suicide. What she never expected was that one act would change her life forever. That one act would bring her true love and friendship she can’t live without.

Jason Macinlay was a sweetheart. Originally from Oregon, he lives in New York and has a fiance back home. While out running one night, she spots a girl trying to kill herself and takes a chance. A chance to befriend her, a chance to give her a place to live.

What started as one stranger helping out another, being humane and considerate, blooms into a beautiful, sweet, loving and caring relationship. Jason always stood by Rachel. They had to face a lot of obstacles, but they did not waver. 

After the wreck that was her life, Rachel need a guy like Jason to bring her back to life, to teach her to live gain, to love. Together they were a force to be reckoned with. Their love tugged at my heart and brought tears to my eyes.

This was my first book by Jane Lark and boy I’m impressed. This definitely won’t be my last book by Ms. Lark.

Resisting the Rancher by Roxanne Snopek

9781622661688Book Title: Resisting the Rancher

Series: Three River Ranch #4

Author: Roxanne Snopek

Release Date: 4/14/14

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Synopsis:

Country veterinarian Celia Gamble is in trouble. A misunderstanding from her past is rearing its ugly head and the only person she can turn to is Jonah Clarke—her family’s lawyer and, as it turns out, her brother Zach’s best friend and her childhood crush. She always wanted Jonah to see her as a bona fide woman, but as a woman who’s being wrongfully blackmailed for seducing a married man? Not on her life.

Jonah is happy to help little CeeCee Gamble, if only she’d come clean about why she’s being blackmailed. But with Zach’s wedding on the horizon and Zach’s fashionista fiancée Desiree giving CeeCee a makeover, the little duckling Jonah remembers is turning into a definite swan. And the unwritten law on sisters is clear—hands off. Jonah must resist Celia or lose the only true family he’s ever known.

teal review banner


Resisting the Rancher is my first book by Roxanne Snopek, and I believe my first cowboy book too. I’m happy to say Ms. Snopek did not disappoint. It was a fun and quirky book and emotional where needed.

Celia Gamble just came back home to and opened a new veterinary clinic. Just when things look good, trouble ensues. Someone from her past is determined to ruin her and is willing to go to any extent. There is no one she can turn to, especially her family. She is determined to take care of it herself. But when push comes to shove, she asks her brother’s best friend and her childhood crush, Jonah Clarke.

Jonah is willing to help little CeCe, only if she would come clean about why she is being blackmailed. It doesn’t help that all of a sudden he has unbrotherly thoughts about his best friend’s little sister. It will take everything he has in him to get Celia to trust him and open up to him. Celia’s only stipulation; stop treating her like “little CeCe” and start treating her like Celia, the woman that she is.

All her life Celia wanted Jonah to see her as something more than his brother’s little sister whom he was supposed to protect. But the last thing she wanted was for Jonah to see her as a woman who seduced a married man. With her brother Zach’s wedding right around the corner, his bride Desiree is determined to give Celia a complete makeover.

New clothes and a little make-up and a brand new haircut can do loads for one’s confidence. With her steady transformation from a duckling to a beautiful swan, she is also determined to make a transformation in her relationship with Jonah. 

Celia and Jonah were a sweet couple. Their chemistry was not off the charts scorching hot, but more sober. And that was fine. They knew each other since they were young, knew each other’s likes and dislikes. But they had yet to learn each other as adults. I liked them together.

Celia was feisty and determined. She knows what she wants and does not mind going after it. She is extremely hardworking and independent. Jonah is a sweet guy, loyal, maybe to a fault. The one thing I did not like about him, he was clearly attracted to Celia but kept pushing her away. He was more scared about losing his surrogate family; Zach and his family, than he was of losing Celia. In their relationship together it was always Celia who fought for them, not Jonah.

I did not have much love for Zach either. I agree there is always some teasing and leg pulling between siblings, but he was pretty much bullying Celia. He was undermining and making constant fun of her at every given moment. He did not think much of her. Sure he says he is proud of her, but he never really shows it.

Over all a sweet, quirky and emotional read. I’ll definitely be reading more from this author.

3.5/5 stars.

Dressed to Chill

“The finest clothing made is a person’s own skin, but, of course, society demands something more than this.” –Mark Twain

You know those dreams where you’re walking down the crowded hallway of your old high-school, stark naked? The classical interpretation is that it represents a fear of vulnerability, of being literally “naked” and targeted for judgment.

However, some say our choice of clothing is revealing too.

The CLASSIC personality is sophisticated, organized and well-groomed, with tailored outfits and simple jewelry, like pearls or simple chains.

If you favor jeggings, a trendy tunic and gladiator heels (what are these, I ask?) you’re probably a CONTEMPORARY, confident, direct and independent.

Maybe you’re more of a spontaneous, trend-setting CREATIVE, preferring unique, one-of-a-kind items, paired with multi-colored jewelry and sequined jackets.

Or you’re an adventurous, open-minded DRAMATIC, in black skinny jeans, a black bra under a sheer scarlet blouse, a cropped leather jacket and stacked-heel boots.

The friendly, casual NATURAL wears jeans and T-shirts, canvas running shoes and simple stud earrings.

And of course, there’s the empathetic, sensitive ROMANTIC, decked out in a flowy, ruffled dress, charm bracelet and espadrilles.

In my latest release, RESISTING THE RANCHER, my heroine Celia, hides behind baggy T-shirts and old jeans. She’s afraid of her femininity, unsure of her sex appeal and terrified of looking, as she puts it, “like a pig in drag.”

But in preparation for her brother’s wedding, she’s forced into a makeover, from underwear to mascara. In the process, she discovers aspects of herself she never dreamed existed. Jonah, my hero, is of course delighted to see Celia embrace the beauty that he’s always been able to see.

For myself, I like to be comfortable, to feel relaxed and good about myself in my clothes. But, every now and again, I love to get my sexy on, too.

What about you? What kind of clothing do you feel best in? Do you think your clothing matches your personality?

Colonial Salem

The moment the stranger’s dark eyes meet hers, Anne Scudder’s world is immediately overthrown by chaos. That single flare of desire is immediate, driving away all notions of propriety. Instead, Anne is consumed with sinful thoughts – ones that no unmarried girl should ever have for a man who isn’t her husband…

But Josiah Cromwell is no stranger.

It’s been six years since Josiah stole kisses from Anne, his best friend’s younger sister. Six years since Josiah left after his best friend’s death, burdened by the knowledge that he was responsible for destroying Anne’s family. Now he’s returned to claim the woman he can’t live without. But even as their desire threatens to consume them both – body and soul – the dark workings of suspicion and witchcraft are afoot.

Because in Salem, too much passion can lead a woman to ruin… and condemned to death.

Review: You Again by Ashley Mallory

YouAgain500 You Again

by: Ashlee Mallory

Release Date: 3/24/14

Genre: Romantic Suspense


Tagline: Old acquaintances, New Lovers, and Murder… 


A hopeless crush…

Back in high school, Allie McBride thought the sun set around Sam Fratto’s smiles, even if they were only friends. Now she’s older, wiser, hotter, and teaching at the same school they grew up in. When Sam joins the faculty, she has a chance to make good on the crush that got away. But when a dead body turns up on school grounds, they realize there might be a murderer in their midst. The heat keeps getting hotter between Allie and Sam, but more might be in danger than their hearts…

The cute kid from high school is all grown up…

A family crisis brings true-crime writer Sam Fratto back to town after more than a decade’s absence. Teaching at his alma mater seems like a good way to pass the time—especially when he sees that Allie, the geeky, sweet-mannered girl from high school, has blossomed into the saucy teacher in the classroom next door. Too bad finding a dead body transforms his return into one of his true-crime books come to life. And when it seems the killer might be after Allie next, it’s up to him to keep her safe…

A killer determined to keep the past buried at any price…

As if dealing with the return of one ghost from her past wasn’t enough, it looks like the killer might be the person they least suspected. Someone from the past. Someone with something to hide. Someone who thinks Allie and Sam are getting a little too close to the truth. If Allie and Sam are going to get out of this alive, these two friends to lovers will have to work together…or die together…

Allie McBride had a crush on Sam Fratto back in high school. But he never gave her the time of his day. For him, she was just a cute kid trying to please everyone. Allie has come far from the fat, cute kid she was in high school. Now she is confident, hot, sassy and extremely sexy. She is also teaching at her alma mater, St. Academy and involved in her school and her job.

Sam Fratto is a true-crime writer. He left his home as soon as he could, when he found out his perfect family was anything but. Now his mother’s illness brings him back to town. He accepts a teaching position at his old school. Seeing the geeky, sweet-mannered Allie blossomed into into a saucy woman is a jolt to his system.

With Allie trying to make something of her crush and Sam trying to get the hot teacher next door, neither of them expects a dead body cropping up. Especially the dead body of one of their favourite teachers, Mr. Williams. With the discovery of the body, Allie’s life is threatened, crimes escalate, the dirty past comes to the forefront.

With every facet of the past that is revealed, Allie realizes that Mr. Williams is not the man she thought him to be. Not just him, but her once best-friend turned arch-enemy is also hiding her own secrets, and so is Sam and his family. Among the lies and deceit, Allie has to decide who to trust.

You Again is high on the mystery/suspense angle. Romance not so much. Sam and Allie acknowledge that they are attracted, but any sort of relationship comes only at the end of the book, and it’s too little. The best part about the book was that it was not too predictable. I only suspected the murderer a bit before Allie and Sam. Though in retrospect I should have seen it coming. That said I did not like how Sam and Allie left Meredith alone without confronting her about the lies she said in the past.

Overall I liked the book and enjoyed it too, but I wish certain issues like the Meredith one were properly resolved.

3.5/5 stars.

ashlee mallory  About the Author:

Ashlee lives with her husband, two kids, a dog, and cat surrounded by the majestic mountains of her hometown of Salt Lake.

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, she always wanted to know what it was like to live on the other side of the mountains. In college, she interned a semester in DC and later attended law school in Syracuse, New York, where she also ventured to Israel for a summer semester. After graduating law school with a taste of what it’s like living in the bigger world, she moved back home to Salt Lake and took the Utah Bar Exam, got married, and settled in with her hubby and two wonderful kids. After a few more years in the legal realm, she grew restless and turned her pen to one of her first loves—writing stories.

Currently, when she’s not working the day job as in-house counsel, she spends her time with the family and squeezing in writing time—anything to avoid the housekeeping. Just kidding, honey! ;)

She writes with romance and humor at the heart of every story—and a healthy dash of mystery and suspense.

Hopefully she pulls it off.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack follows up her trio of hits—Losing It, Faking It, and Finding It—with this thrilling first novel in an explosive series bursting with the Texas flavor, edge, and steamy romance of Friday Night Lights.

In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both.

Dallas Cole loathes football. That’s what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.

But life doesn’t always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again.

Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It’s obliterated.

Dallas doesn’t know Carson is on the team. Carson doesn’t know that Dallas is his new coach’s daughter.

And neither of them know how to walk away from the attraction they feel.
