Synopsis:


In Emily you got part of my story. But now in Unexpected you get the rest of it.

True, it doesn’t go the way I planned and I don’t end up with the man I had planned on. But then again, that’s why they say to ‘expect the unexpected.’

I have a choice to make…

Do I choose my past? Or do I choose a path that is uncertain?

Only time can tell in the end. I have to choose before feelings are hurt and it’s too late, causing me to loose everything I hold dear.

Sincerely,
Emily

Excerpt:
Unexpected (Skipping Stones: Book 2)
Unedited
 
“How did I get in here?”
I ask when my eyes make it back to his face.
With his eyes still
closed he says, “Shh…sleeping.”
“Yes, I heard that. But
considering you are talking I took it as you were awake. So again how did I get
here?”
Sighing loudly, he squints
one eye open and looks at me, “Ya know, when someone says their sleeping. It
don’t mean keep talking to them, it means be quiet.”
“I don’t care, answer my
question.”
“You ain’t gonna stop
until I tell ya, are ya?”
“Nope, sure ain’t.”
Huffing out his breath he
tells me, “After we had our fight, you passed out in the yard. So being the
gentleman I am, I carried ya inside and gave you a shower and then I put you to
bed.”
I stay silent. I passed
out? Seriously?

“Now that I answered
your question. Can I go back to sleep?”

Review:Fates Divided ( A Halven Rising Novel) By:Jules Barnard

Review: Fates Divided (A Halven Rising Novel) By: Jules Barnard

(A Halven Rising Novel) 
Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.com/Fates-Divided-Halven-Rising-Book-ebook/dp/B013XTB6XE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1441028799&sr=8-1&keywords=Fates+divided

  
I was really excited to see that Jules had a YA paranormal series planned. I have read her Blue Series and absolutely loved it so once I got wind of her working on something like this I was instantly interested. I am a sucker for a new YA or NA paranormal series! I was not disappointed with this book it truly had everything I look for in a new series. 
A relatable heroine – Elena is a freshman in college just getting the hang of this being an adult and living on your own thing and all of a sudden these events start happening. (Like living on your own for the first time isn’t hard enough right?) she is a chemistry major and was working on a solution in a lab when it begins to boil over. . . A little hard to explain and so she tries to experiment in her apartment only to discover that she can indeed cause things to boil over with just a wave of her hand basically. Wanting to test out her abilities more she tries to figure out which lab she can gain access to only to discover that no one is allowed to access the labs except during class hours. Enter in Derek her next door neighbor! He says that he can help her gain access to one of the labs but there is one condition that he has to stay with her while she is in there. Thus begins the adventure! Racing against time lends tension to the story and that along with the trying to figure out who and what you are and who is after you makes for a entirely enjoyable read. There is a bit of a romance angle to the story but it’s not the entire storyline haha. There are some fantasy elements to this story for example There are Fae. But in true Fae fashion they do not do anything easily. And want to know more about Elena in hopes that she can cure them of a virus they have become infected with. 
Some parts of the book do seem to drag on a little longer than they should but it’s few and far between and didn’t affect my interest in the story. The further you get in the book the quicker you flip pages! The ending is pretty intense and left me immediately wanting book 2 in the series! Which to me is the hallmark of a wonderful new series! I knew I was in safe hands with Jules and if you haven’t discovered her books yet then this is definitely one I would start with.

AmazonNook • KoboiBooksGoogle Play

Elena Rosales has busted her ass to get into a good college. She’s the only one in her family ever to attend, and expectations are high. No pressure. But Elena’s got this one in the bag, because she’s as dependable as the molecules she studies, as reliable as the chemical reactions that comfort her in their predictability. Until they don’t.

Elena has always wondered why her mother abandoned her on her first birthday. It’s not until she turns eighteen and her chemistry experiments go berserk that she learns the truth: Her mother wasn’t human, and the Fae are willing to harm those Elena loves if she doesn’t use her power over the elements to cure them of a deadly disease.

Derek, Elena’s brooding neighbor, isn’t the friendliest guy, but he has access to an off-hours lab and is willing to help Elena create the antivirus. He has his own secrets to keep, and this business Elena is mixed up in could blow his cover. But when Elena and Derek get together, more than chemicals spark fire-and they soon discover just how complicated attraction can get when they find themselves on the other side of the portal, fighting for survival. Lives collide, and allegiance and love are tested, in Fates Divided.

Synopsis Logo

It’s a summer fling; just keep telling yourself that and you’ll be alright. This thing with Mason Pierce, it’s just a fling, something fun to pass the time. He’s a rebound from the disastrous breakup, a band-aid, a patch over a wound that will help the hurt heal, right? ~Red

If someone had told me two months ago that I’d be spending the summer with Red Summers in my arms, I’d have called them crazy, but here I am and here she is. Life is just about as perfect as it can be. Except, it feels like she’s pulling away instead of drawing closer. Everyday, it seems that Red is putting more and more distance between us, and I don’t understand why. ~Mason

“I’ve loved you since you were ten years old. Hell, I may have loved you before that, but I don’t remember. I’ve only ever wanted you, Red. I’m never going to want anyone else,” I vow. “Just you.”

Mom always tells me that when life gives you lemons you squeeze the heck out of them and hope for some lemonade, but after catching that no-good lying, jerk of a bastard cheating on me seconds before we were supposed to be married, I do what any self-respecting Southern girl would do: throw a punch and hide under my blankie. Now, Mary Lou thinks I need a night of fun and adventure. I agree to go out, planning to get her off my back, but when I find myself in Mason Pierce’s arms, I’m thanking my lucky stars, and my best friend. ~Red

***

Freemont, Oklahoma, is the last place on the whole damned planet that I want to spend my summer and working on my parents’ ranch is the last thing I want to do, but damned if that’s not what I’m doing. Monroe and I need a night away from this place, a night to blow off steam. A party at the lake sounds like a mighty fine idea, and after catching a glimpse of Red Summers in the firelight, I’m quickly changing my tune. ~Mason

I’m a twenty-something Okie girl who is mom to three, four if you count my husband. I’m a full time author/photographer, and I love to make teaser graphics to avoid actually working! I graduated from SOSU (a smaller, four-year university that is close to home) with a Bachelor’s degree in English Lit and a minor in Sociology. I’m an avid reader, obviously, and a life-long writer. I love happily ever afters above all else (though, the struggle to get there is the best part!) Currently, I have two published series: Sealed and Like A Lady. Check out the first part to either series for free!

In Part 3 of this amazing serial we see just how Girl Code works haha. Mel is still holding a grudge at the beginning of the book and results in a funny run in with Red. Which leads to another one of Mary Lou’s hilerious outbursts which basically boils down to Small town living (within minutes any public spectacle will be talked about all over town within seconds of it happening) 
Gradually though Red and Mel make up and everything is right with the world once again! Or is it? . . . Cash might have a smidge of a crush on our Red and that leads to a lot of does he or does he not internal debate for Red. 
The Girls Night portion of the book was probably one of my absolute favorites from the 3 books. The struggle is real when you have wine and no corkscrew ladies! Let me tell you! The adventures with the group continue like we are used to. Mason and Red are their typical adorable self and then all of a sudden Red discovers a secret that we the reader have already learned about from the previous books and it all unravels! That makes for a pretty dramatic cliffhanger and also what makes it my favorite book of the series. Don’t get me wrong I love the other books with the butterflies of new relationships and bonding with the girls etc. . . But this book with its added drama throwing a wrench into the works makes it the best in my book. I like the tension and the not knowing how this will all shake out. It kept the pacing fast paced for me and I was still trying to flip pages once I got to the end praying for more chapters!

I adore this series! In this book we see Mason and Red getting closer, Mary Lou is up to her hilerious shenigans, and the small town feel is escalated when the characters attend the local fair. And we finally see Mel! I was not expecting how that went down but it was a pretty great moment in the storyline since it gives us another added layer of drama. 
There are some pretty funny moments (Critter, Critter)! And Mary Lou’s helpful advice haha she is a pretty awesome bestie actually. I really enjoyed the switch between Mason and Red’s POV and the flashbacks really help out the backstory.

And boy is there some backstory! Stuff definitely gets complicated but welcome to real life right? Life is messy and complicated but it’s the people you choose to spend it with and the experiences you have that make it worth all of the complications! I’m so ready for Fix Your Makeup!

Sweeter than a glass of iced tea on a summer’s day! This book is like going home for me, I grew up in a small town in Arkansas so I know people exactly like these characters. It was such an adorable read! I love books with southern characters but most of the ones I find they all involve older heroines. This book they are all about my age or maybe a smidge younger but it still makes them completely relatable. It reminds me of a younger version of the Sweet Potato Queens books (which if you’ve never read them you need to get on it!) 
We begin the story with a fiasco of a wedding and things just escalate from there haha. Red has to pick herself up and put herself back together with the help of her bossy, sassy friend and go after the one who got away. The story is the perfect length for a serial and you finish the end wanting the next installment. Lucky me since i have the next two sitting pretty on my Kindle. So,

grab yourself a nice cool glass of sweet tea and hang out with Red and Mason and all of their friends to see where this heartwarming story goes next!

 “I’m not sure you want me

cooking for you, or anyone else. I feel like you kidnapped me and you’re trying
to give me this life that’s not really mine. I don’t feel like the type to be
controlled.”




Paxton placed a finger over both my lips and
shushed me with a quiet, “Shhh, hush now. I assure you with everything in me
that you
are the type to be controlled. That’s why you suck my dick.
That’s why your legs fall apart whenever I come near you. You’re a slut. My
slut. I own you.” His dry, sultry
words,  touched my lips while his
fingsers slid
down the middle of my neck. One
straight line. The dry swallow stuck in my chest when his hold over me wrapped
gently around my throat. His grip
tightened and his lips met
mine. “Shhh, don’t talk, baby girl. Turn around and go take a shower like you
were told”
My eyes cowardly dropped to
the floor and I
submitted.

My name is Jettie Woodruff. I am from Ohio. I don’t know what genre I write in. People tell me I have my own genre. I write whatever I feel, because that’s what makes me happy. I don’t want to be in that box where I can only write one genre. I tend to like my bad boy’s, taboo; touchy subjects that make you want to throw your kindle. Usually at said hot alpha male. Sometimes the female lead as well. My motto is life is short. Very short. If it doesn’t make you happy anymore then why do it? Move on. Some of my favorite things, besides writing are friends, family, and the beach. Music, although my interest has changed after forty, I like the new stuff. Happy Reading.
