A fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
A competition…

He even makes me forget my name. One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting…

Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I’ve ever met in my life.

He’s the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I’m drawn to him as I’ve never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he’s near, I need to remind myself that I am strong–but he is stronger. And now it’s my job to keep his body working like a perfect machine, his taut muscles primed and ready to break the bones of his next opponents . . .

But the one he’s most threatening to, now, is me.

I want him. I want him without fear. Without reservations.

If only I knew for sure what it is that he wants from me?

Anyway, I guess this Google Reader is a for sure and it will be no more quite soon.

Crash and Burn Blog Tour: Author Interview

Welcome to my stop on the Crash and Burn Blog Tour hosted by A Life Bound by Books.

Today, I've got an interview with author, Michael Hassan, on books and writing to share with all of you amazing bookworms!

About the book:

Title: Crash and Burn
Author: Michael Hassan
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Release date: February 19, 2013


On April 21, 2008, Steven "Crash" Crashinsky saved more than a thousand people when he stopped his classmate David Burnett from taking their high school hostage armed with assault weapons and high-powered explosives. You likely already know what came after for Crash: the nationwide notoriety, the college recruitment, and, of course, the book deal. What you might not know is what came before: a story of two teens whose lives have been inextricably linked since grade school, who were destined, some say, to meet that day in the teachers' lounge of Meadows High. And what you definitely don't know are the words that Burn whispered to Crash right as the siege was ending, a secret that Crash has never revealed.

Until now.

Michael Hassan's shattering novel is a tale of first love and first hate, the story of two high school seniors and the morning that changed their lives forever. It's a portrait of the modern American teenage male, in all his brash, disillusioned, oversexed, schizophrenic, drunk, nihilistic, hopeful, ADHD-diagnosed glory. And it's a powerful meditation on how normal it is to be screwed up, and how screwed up it is to be normal.

Teaser Tuesday (29): Real by Katy Evans


This weekly meme is brought to you by MizB from Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along, just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers; make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away; you don't want to ruin the book for others
  • Share the title and the author so Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their to-be-read pile if they like your teaser.

My Teasers:

Cover Reveal + Giveaway: The Avery Shaw Experiment by Kelly Oram


I am so thrilled to be a part of this cover reveal because I am a huge fan of Oram's work. She has such a way of perfectly delivering her character's voices that makes them stick out in this way that always makes 'em hard to forget.

I had no idea she was releasing a new YA so soon! I am so hooked on her Jamie Baker series that this just flew right over my head. Needless to say, I am stoked for this one because I have a feeling I'll love it crazy!

Also, the cover is seriously the cyootest thing ever! The colors, the scientific feel to it, -- which is way too perfect for the title -- the couple, the Lv that represents love, and I especially love how "novel" is crossed out and replaced with "theory."

Check it out, read the two teasers I've got for you, and then let me know in the comments what you think!

Momo's Playlist (10): Beat This Summer & Wildest Moments


This past weekend, I've discovered two new songs that my ears itch to listen to every single second that I'm not listening to them, haha! And because that's the case, I must share 'em!

One of them I discovered early Saturday morning and the other I just found literally thirty-five minutes ago, courtesy of my BIFFA. <3

Check 'em out, blast 'em, feel good, and enjoy!

Cover Reveal: Real by Katy Evans


Just recently, Katy Evans revealed the cover to her upcoming New Adult, Real. I was honored to have score an advanced copy of this one and I kept checking for when it would be up on Goodreads that I can't believe I missed it.

I just finished it last night and ermahgerd guys, it so totally blew me away! I am so stoked for all of you to read it and I hope you guys love it cray!

Momo's Playlist (9): Anymore of This


Two nights ago was what I (as well as the whole fandom, probably, lol) like to call, #TVDThursday. I watch this show like... religiously and look forward to it every week; I've hardly missed an episode by choice, haha. ;p

This show (along with Grey's Anatomy and One Tree Hill) features some of the best music/artists ever. Seriously. After every episode, every week, I stalk @cmollere's Twitter account like a... crazy stalker, pretty much (i mean, i've even got his twitter handle memorized), to find the songs that were on that week's episode.

Anyway, this past Thursday's episode had quite a few songs in it (some weeks there aren't any, haha) but the one song that I always seem to hone in on all the time in most of the episodes is that one song towards the end when everything starts to wrap up and it's like... the downtime of the episode, lol, if that makes any sense. Also, this song is always one that's slower and it's just always the most perfect song for whatever scene it's playing for.

When it came on in this episode, I wasn't really even paying attention to the tv, but right when I heard it, my head immediately whipped around and my ears were definitely on high alert. After the episode ended, I didn't look for it right away but... last night, I re-watched the episode and hence my curiosity of the song yet again. I went to @cmollere's Twitter account and sure enough, the song list was there.

I Youtubed it, of course, and after the first thirty seconds, I fell in love with it. Hard. It was the piano that did it for me, for sure. So now I'm hooked and want to share it with all of you!

Sometimes Never & Blackbird Blog Tour Kicks Off Monday!

Book Blitz + Giveaway: Blood and Snow: The Complete Set by RaShelle Workman


RaShelle Workman's Blood and Snow: The Complete Set is a re-telling of Snow White with a vampire twist that definitely makes it stand out in its own limelight. The omnibus just recently released on February 17, 2013 where you can get all twelve novelettes in the series in once place.

I love Snow White and I got the gist of her fairy tale but in the versions that I've seen (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs | Snow White: The Fairest of Them All), I was never aware of the Huntsman. I haven't seen these movies since I was a little girl so who knows, there very well could have been a Huntsman and I just didn't pick up on it.

But after seeing Snow White and the Huntsman and now, being aware of him, I love that story line. I haven't read this series yet but I'm definitely intrigued by Workman's re-telling of Snow White and how she went about it with her twists!

Book Spotlight + Giveaway: The Forgotten Ones by Laura Howard

About the book:

The Forgotten Ones
Title: The Forgotten Ones
Author: Laura Howard
Publisher: Self-published
Release date: May 15, 2013


Allison O'Malley just graduated from college. Her life's plan is to get a job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She doesn't have room for friends or even Ethan, who clearly wants more.

When Allison's long-lost father shows up, he claims he can bring her mother back from the dark place her mind has sent her. He reveals legends of a race of people long forgotten, the Tuatha de Danaan, along with the truth about why he abandoned her mother.

Cover Reveal: More Than Jamie Baker by Kelly Oram


People, I have another gorgeous cover to share with you! Man, today's bookish news just keep getting better and better!

This is one that I feel not a lot of people have read but I wish everyone would!

The story line of the plot is so different (well, when i stumbled upon it) and it's seriously the sweetest and cyootest thing ever... the relationship between Jamie and Ryan, that is. Also, I definitely think it's Oram's writing that captured me wholeheartedly; she's able to capture the voices of her characters so well that it's hard to forget about them. For example, Ryan Miller -- I can't get him out of my mind, ever. He's just the sweetest and he's oh-so-perfect for Jamie!

Exhibit A:

I was proud of Jamie regardless of whether or not the rest of the student body understood her, and I was determined to let everyone know that. As we walked through the lunch line, my arm securely—and obviously—around her waist, I met as many curious gazes as I could with reassuring smiles. That’s the only reason I noticed the girl in front of me slip in time to catch her.

“Thanks,” she said a little breathlessly as I set her back on her feet.

“It was my pleasure,” I said, still a little giddy from my awesome Jamie-is-my-girlfriend high. “I’m a quarterback, you know? I never get to catch.”

The girl laughed until something caught her eye and her face went instantly white. When I followed her gaze she was looking at Jamie. I had to hold back laughter when I realized what the problem was.

In making myself Jamie’s boyfriend I’d basically stamped CAUTION: PROPERTY OF THE ICE QUEEN on my forehead. I was more than okay with that, but it did make me somewhat unapproachable now. I mean, people may not have known all the different ways Jamie could kill them without even trying, but they still knew better than to mess with—or flirt with—the Ice Queen’s boyfriend.

Not that Jamie would actually hurt them. In fact, I doubted she’d even care about the flirting. Jealousy didn’t seem her style. But I was the only one who knew that. As proof of that, the girl who’d just fallen into my arms mumbled a quick, “Sorry,” Jamie’s direction and then practically sprinted back to her seat.

Jamie and I both laughed a little as we sat down. “Poor thing,” Jamie said, snickering.

“Yeah. I remember the first time I had to interact with you. It’s pretty scary.”

“Oh yeah, I’m sure you were real terrified as you were asking me to make out with you,” Jamie said sarcastically. “But that’s not what I meant.”

What else could she have meant? Jamie laughed at my confusion and then nodded her head toward the girl we’d just scared off. “That poor girl just slipped on potato salad and fell in love forever.”

Read the rest of this excerpt.

Okay, before my mouth runs off without me, check out the cover and then you can read more of my gushing... if you'd like, haha!

Cover Reveal: The Edge of Always by J.A. Redmerski


I just ran across the exclusive cover reveal for this book on USA Today and was shocked because 1) how was I so unaware of this taking place today? and 2) HOLY SMOKES -- that cover!

I feel like I don't say it enough but I loveloveloved The Edge of Never like so very cray. Towards the beginning, I had no idea what I was getting myself into and I found it odd that Camryn just up and left and was all alone on this bus ride but man oh man, towards the end and long after I flipped that last page, I found myself wanting to do exactly that -- just up and leave and see where life would take me.

This is definitely one that changed me, a bit. One that is a super speshal jewel.

Anyway, I just had to let everyone know because seeing the cover for book two just makes me a millionbillionzilliongillionhilliontillion times more excited and stoked and impatient for its release!

Check out the cover and then we'll talk some more!

Momo's Playlist (8): Start of Something Good


Wow, has it been a while or what? ;p

Recently (like last week), I finished J. Lynn's New Adult, Wait for You (check out my review here). For those of you who know me, I always (although, not so much lately... so, i guess it's not always anymore) find a song to listen to that in some way relates back to the book I'm reading.

At first, I couldn't find the right one until... randomly shuffling through my ipod, I came across this song that I swear could not be more perfect for Avery and Cam -- like word for word.

Check it out and let me know what you think!

Love is the ultimate rush.

Freshman year of college isn't easy. But with a friend like Libby Patterson, it is unforgettable.

Libby is honest and fearless and adorable. She's the girl on campus that everyone knows. The life of every party. Infectious and addictive, Libby captivates all those around her. Particularly her roommate Honor and their boy bestie Toby.

But three isn't always a magic number. And there's more to this trio than what everyone sees.

When Honor finds herself falling for an artist, and Libby doesn’t approve, and Toby finds himself watching Libby more than he should...the sides of their circle become strained.

The three are suddenly stretched between friendship, love and taking sides. They must fight to hold on to each other. But the tighter the hold, the harder it gets. Especially when Libby's unpredictability turns dangerous. Now it's up to Honor and Toby to save her from the downward spiral that could break their circle for good.

Title: Wounded
Author: Jasinda Wilder
Publisher: Seth Clarke
Release date: January 11, 2013

War has taken everything from me. My family. My home. My innocence. In a country blasted by war and wracked by economic hardship, a young orphan girl like me has very few options when it comes to survival. Thus, I do what I must to live, to eat, and I try very hard to not consider the cost to my soul. My heart is empty, and my existence brutal.

The one impossibility in my life is love.

And then I meet HIM.

War is hell. It takes a chunk out of a man's very soul to do the kinds of things war demands of you. You live with fear, you live with guilt, and you live with nightmares. If you haven't been through it, there's no understanding it. War leaves no room for love, no room for tenderness or softness. You gotta be hard, closed off, and ready to fight every moment of every day. Lose focus for a split second, and you're dead.

Now the only thing that can save me is HER.

Some things are worth waiting for…

Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.

Some things are worth experiencing…

Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.

Some things should never be kept quiet…

But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?

And some things are worth fighting for…

Just within this month, we've learned a bunch of amazing news about The Edge of Never -- eeep! If you've been living under a rock, here's the news from Redmerski's website:
