review SPOILER ALERT! 2016-01-14 00:08
Completed January 13, 2016
Untied: A Memoir of Family, Fame, and Floundering - Meredith Baxter

Money doesn't buy happiness - and fame can't make you whole.  Meredith Baxter discovered that the hard way.

 

Deeply damaged by an upbringing fraught with parental indifference, three poisonous "traditional" marriages and battles with drug addiction and alcoholism, Baxter worked steadily because work was the only thing that kept her going.  Figuring out in her 50s that she was a lesbian saved her from further torture and brought her the love and joy she so badly needed.

 

Revealing.  Compelling.  Not your typical celebrity autobiography!

Careful What You Wish For: Not Your Average Fairytale
Careful What You Wish For: Not Your Aver... Careful What You Wish For: Not Your Average Fairytale - Michelle Escamilla Originally posted on Book-o-Craze, on a tour hosted by HEA Book Tours PR & More.


This book contained a quite unusual and original story I enjoyed immensely reading about!!

Harley has just landed some new clients for the firm she works for, being now one step closer to a promotion! On the way to the bar where they will enjoy their celebratory drinks, she and her best friend Olivia, she hops on a cab, where she confides to the female driver, who proved to be her Fairy Godmother, that she would very much want to get married and have kids with her boss Ethan Prince!

When she arrives at the bar, while having promised to herself that she will not have more than one drink, she eventually gets drunk and a little flirty with Matt, the bartender. On her way home, she falls asleep while still on the cab... and wakes up somewhere else entirely!!

How is Harley going to handle the sudden realization that her wish has been fulfilled and she is now Mrs. Prince and has two beautiful daughters Cassie and Leila?

While at first shocked and terribly confused by everything happening, she soon starts to enjoy her new life!
Until the moment Donna, her Godmother reveals that this is not the life she was supposed to lead and it was all a mistake! The only way for her to make things the way they are supposed to be is to realize what was meant to happen differently, and with those realizations the correct changes will be made!

A very sweet read that also passed a beautiful message, emphasizing the fact that wishes cannot be granted exactly the way we make them, because that way they might turn out badly. Instead, even if we think all of our wishes have been granted, we still need to check if some things could get better, and mostly in relation to the person one has married and the life they lead together! Especially, if only one person has changed their life around and adjusted to the marriage, contradicting their own personality.

This is exactly what happened to our heroine! Harley was an independent woman focused on her job and being perfectly happy about it! Waking up a few years later, she realizes that she has become a stay-at-home mom, who has completely changed her habits, her clothing style and generally her life, in order to make her husband happy!


But, is she happy?



All in all, 4,5 stars for a read that passed a beautiful and powerful message!

Be Careful What You Wish For
Be Careful What You Wish For - Jade C. J... Be Careful What You Wish For - Jade C. Jamison I really wanted to hate Kage but at the end of it all he was great! I was glad Jessica got past her hang ups as well. It was a bit of a roller coaster there for a bit.

Review - Be Careful What You Wish For by Jeffrey Archer
Be Careful What You Wish For - Jeffrey Archer

I gave this book two stars because the GSP (grammar, spelling, and punctuation) was spot on. Other than that?  Gah.

 

Archer used to be one of my favorite authors.  Used to be.  He has now fallen into niche writing... sort of like Stephen King.  All his characters are essentially the same, as are his plots.  Nothing new, nothing exciting. Sad to say.

Be Careful What You Wish For
Be Careful What You Wish For - Jade C. J... Be Careful What You Wish For - Jade C. Jamison Cheating..... This is a subject that most people abhor... most everyone has been a victim of.... and a few (very few) will admit to having committed it.

Jade C. Jamison tackled this incredibly volatile topic with the grace and honest in your face reality of cheating.

In this amazing story, you get a completely original twist on cheating... no, not a triangle... this is about a wench of a woman, paying another woman to seduce her husband to prove he is a low life cheater.

In walks Jessica, a struggling independent college student with a car on the fritz, and no way to pay for repairs. Destiny brings in a loud mouth and rude table of women, who after many drinks, proposition Jessica to try and seduce one of the husbands to prove he is a cheating bastard... Jessica, who has morals immediately says "no", and trys to walk away... but they up the offer... and Jessica, without a car is not a functioning woman.. so the offer hits that magic $ amount she needs. Who could blame her... he is the one in the wrong.... right???

In walks sex on a stick, Kage.... yes.. how can anyone with the name Kage not be sex on a stick?! Not only is he a hottie... but he is a broken soul, and a really really good guy... who can blame Jessica at all?? Most of us would pay to have this man handed to us!!! lol Well push comes to shove, and they have an incredible connection... and he turns her down... well... at first... lol

ok, I won't spoil it for you, but obviously you know a little or a lot of sumthin' sumthin' happened, or this book would be a novella!

Now this is where I freaking love JADE!!! She takes this original story, and this volatile topic, and opens up a complete can of worms not usually seen in a "cheating" book... Jade goes Deeeeeeeeeep!!! I mean.. just imagine the insecurities you would have if you got the Sex on a Stick good guy by getting paid to seduce him... then how could you trust him??? Once a cheater always a cheater, right??? oh... and remember Mr. Hottie was a little broken.. well there is that evolution as well...

And i must mention... Sex on a Stick... Broken Soul... Good Guy... yeah.. he is a Rock God as well... I think all that's left is for him to walk on water in the Book Boyfriend department...lolol

Seriously a wonderfully written story with a beautiful eye to detail on a not so very nice subject... Please do yourselves a favor and read this great book NOW!!!
