Title: Cross Stroke
Series: On the Edge #1
Author: Elizabeth Hartey
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 16, 2018
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
 
 
 
 
 
Tracey…
 
One night left my heart shattered and my reputation ruined, and now my only hope is to transfer to another university far from home. Although I’m a champion figure skater and am used to succeeding, I can’t dump the burden of distrust and intimacy I’m carrying.
 
But when I literally crash into the cocky captain of the hockey team, sparks fly, and the attraction is as undeniable as it is unwanted.
 
No way is this arrogant hottie the one to help me move past my fears. Or is he…?
 
Dak…
 
Overwhelmed with guilt and remorse, I can’t forget the tragic accident that killed my first love. To avoid ever feeling that kind of agonizing loss again, I vow to stick with one-night stands with every puck bunny who glides my way and focus on keeping my position on the hockey team.
 
But after I meet a feisty figure skater and am then thrown together with her as a lab partner, I find I want to melt the icy walls we’ve built around our hearts.
 
If we don’t strangle each other first.

The courage to be responsible for someone’s life and happiness again is something I lack in a big way. In the end, being responsible for someone else’s life and happiness is what a real relationship is all about. Being with the one special person you want feels great…most of the time. However, if something goes wrong, it can be decimating for both people. Once you cross the relationship line, both people possess the power to destroy each other. I know what it’s like to be bulldozed by love. I can’t risk it again. But did I already cross the line by kissing her the way I did? Because she’s all I think about, all I see when I close my eyes. I don’t get this.
 
I thought I loved Abbey with all my heart. I thought we would be together for the rest of our lives. I guess we were. I just didn’t know the rest of Abbey’s life would be so short. But if all those emotions for Abbey were real, how can I be feeling what I’m feeling for Trace now? She’s so different than Abbey. I’m consumed by the guilty feeling that if Abbey had lived, in time I might’ve fallen out of love with her and destroyed her in a different way.
 
We were both young. I’m not exactly ancient now, but three or four years in time and experience in college can make a world of difference. I’m a different guy than I was when I was a freshman, learned a lot about life and love. That doesn’t mean I know for sure what the future holds and I don’t want to do anything to Trace to hurt her somewhere down the road. She deserves way better than me.
 
See what I mean about relationships? I’m a perfect example. A few months ago, I had figured out how to live my life on my terms: hockey, school, surfing, the casual hook up with the next consenting hot girl to come my way. Now I’m a f…ed up mess trying to figure out what I’m feeling for Trace. She deserves more than this guarded, emotional wreck.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
As a lover of the northeast US, Elizabeth moved with her husband to the Poconos several years ago to open a Chiropractic Clinic. Four children and a menagerie of animals later, she has finally found time to fulfill her lifelong dream of writing novels. The wild ride of writing books is one of the most difficult things she’s ever done in her life. But the opportunity to get her stories out of her head and down on paper and send them out into the world is also one of the most wonderful things she’s ever done. A dreamer at heart, romance is the genre she spends most of her time writing and reading into the wee hours of the morning. And having readers fall in love with her characters as much as she does is almost as exciting as giving birth (just not as painful!) When not juggling work responsibilities and writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking the beautiful hills and woods around her home, swimming, knitting, watching old classic movies and traveling.

Froggy Gets Dressed - Jonathan London, Frank Remkiewicz (Illustrator)

Froggy Gets Dressed by Jonathan London is such a fun read for young readers! This book provides a great deal of exposure to onomatopoeia and dialogue. This is great for beginning readers because they can read it to themselves and become familiar with these literary devices. The vivid illustrations are also engaging for readers of all ages as it draws you in and keeps you wanting to keep reading. I also think this book does a wonderful job of sequencing. Froggy undresses and redresses several times in the story. This opens up the door for a lesson on sequencing.

 

I would use this in the classroom by asking students to write a story of how they get dressed for school in the morning. I would ask them to use adjectives to describe the color and style of the clothing they put on. I would also ask the students to include everything that they put on including socks and hair ties. In upper grades, I would ask students to include as much detail as which shoe they tie first, what do they button/zip, and more. At the end of the writing, I would encourage students to share their morning routine with their classmates so they can compare their routine for getting dressed with each other.

Fearless: The Rosewood Bay Series, book ... Fearless: The Rosewood Bay Series, book 1 - Carly Phillips

OMG!  I am in love with Kane Harmon.  Talk about the sweetest, nicest, perfect guy!

After getting jilted and used by a summer vacationer to his little beach town of Rosewood Bay, Kane has stayed away from any type of relationships.  The occasional hookup is fine, but that is it.  He has enough to worry about with his gambling addicted father, his single mom sister and running his garage business.  

When Kane goes on a tow truck run to pick up a female broken down on the highway, he is surprised to find Halley Ward.  He hasn't seen Halley in years, since their emotional connection back in high school when he protected her from school bullies.  Instantly attracted to Halley, and finding out that she actually still lives in Rosewood Bay, Kane starts to pursue her.  Too bad Halley is not interesting in a relationship.  Kane continues to insert himself into Halley's life because he can tell she wants more to her life than she currently has, but is afraid because of things from her past.  Little by little Kane wears her down until she sees that having Kane in her life is a beautiful thing.

I just adored Kane.  He was so patient and kind and just what Halley needed in her life.  Halley had some horrible issues from her past but with Kane's help she was able to overcome them.  Overall I loved this story.  I sat and read it in one day because I could not put it down!  And the sneak peek into Halley's sister Phoebe's story looks so fun! ;)

Cover Reveal - Robbie

SBPRBANNER-Robbie-CR

 

Confessions: Robbie, an all new tantalizing contemporary MMM Romance by Ella Frank is coming March 8th!

 

 

Robbie-Confessions-PRINT-FOR-WEB copy

 

Confessions: Robbie

Author: Ella Frank

Release Date: March 8th

 

Synopsis:

 

Relationships are complex.

Love ever-changing.

And when it comes to rules of the heart,

they were made to be broken…

 

That’s what Robert Antonio Bianchi was telling himself, anyway.

Otherwise, he really had no excuse for what—or who—he’d done.

 

No excuse, except for his lonely heart, a pitcher of margaritas, four Bitter Bitches, and the apparent need to confess all his weaknesses to the two men he knew would bring him nothing but trouble.

 

But trouble was nothing new.

 

Just ask his crazy sisters or any of his friends, and they’d be the first to tell you:

If there was a bad decision to be made, Robbie always had a knack for making it.

 

And thus begins the story of the priest, the princess, and the prick.
