New Years is the time for new beginnings. I thought I’d gotten that when I visited Texas over Thanksgiving. Then again, very little has changed. I’m still a librarian living in the same house. My daughters are growing up fast. Sure, I’ve acquired a new best friend who’s convinced me it’s time to give dating a fair shot. Which isn’t exactly easy when I’m pregnant with an Asshole’s baby. Does that complicate matters? Sorta. But there’s nothing left for me to do except move on. The jagged edges of my shattered heart have been polished. Questions answered, and blank holes from my past plugged. Now I’m ready to take the plunge into uncharted waters, to build a happier life… until a bomb comes along and tests my strength like never before. Nobody fucks with my family and gets away with it. Not even you. 
Warning: Proceed with caution. Contains adult sexual content, the excessive use of the F bomb, violence, and whatever else that makes it unsuitable for anyone under the age of 18.
Not a stand-alone, 2nd book in a Trilogy.
Must read Hopelessly Shattered previously.

Let's start off by saying I really love anything that this author writes she is at the top of one of my favorite MC Romance writers.Some of my favorite characters Bink.Big,Gunz. I have to say that I am also loving this new series but, I HATE reading books with Cliffhangers!I understand why the author has chosen to write this new series this way as she is giving the reader a story not rushed and complete and these main characters have a history that is complicated and she is not rushing to end their journey but, I still hate cliffhangers and this one had me having my mouth wide open saying OMG !OMG!No.......
I have to say that I loved the story from cover to cover and once I started reading it I didn't put it down until it was finished and at that point I didn't wanted it to end. OMG ! hours later and I  was still thinking about that ending.Now thats a great book!
I love when you can connect with the character that you read about and I was able to do that with this cast.I know once that happens at the beginning of the story I knew I was going to love it and I did even Ryker as I just want to constantly smack him up side his head for constantly hurting Kat.I loved how our favorites from a  previous series showed up and played a part in this current story like Big and Gunz as I just love Gunz he is just to funny.
This was and emotional tale for sure.A definite roller coaster of ups and downs along with twists turns with heartache ,pain and suspense.I love how the story unfolded throughout the story alway keeping you on edge to see what happens next.
I always pick a favorite character in a story and this time around Kat is going to be mine.I saw a different side of her this time around.She was always a strong women but, we saw a lot of her fire and determination.I loved how she loved her children with her whole heart.What a strong single parent with two kids and a baby in her belly and the mother of three from a man she can never have and never stop loving.My heart broke  throughout the story for her as she was just the sweetest person in the world and a wonderful mother and just didn't deserve what life kept dishing out to her.I found her to be loving and beautiful inside and out and had a sense of humor.I loved her fire and passion for life and most of all a wonderful mother.
Ryker on the other hand  I found sexy and hot as hell but, throughout the whole story I wanted to just punch him constantly and kept screaming  at him saying "When are you going to get your priorities straight and stop hurting the women you love and your family! "Ryker is a character you love and hate at the same time.Max he was a character that I fell in love with from the very beginning.Max is Kat's savior who offers constant support and just loves her 
unconditionally and we are so glad she has him as her best friend.
Favorite scene in the story would have to be what transpired in the doctors omg! I felt for once that Kat was put first  for the first time in a very long time.
Just and amazing story all around with a wonderful cast of characters to love and hate.This one goes into the keeper pile and I will be re-reading this book and this series over and over again it was just that good.
Recommended read to all! 
This authors story keeps better and better!

"On The Corner of Heartache and Hopeful - Mic" by Lynda Bailey

My Thoughts...

This was quite a interesting erotica romantic story that I did find somewhat predictable however it was still a good read. Everything seemed to come to a head with Scott being back in Tatum, Nebraska due to the fact that his grandmother has died. In taking care of things Scott soon finds out that his grandmother had left Mic something after her death and in getting to the bottom of this he gets involved with Michaela [Mic]. This is where this story will take off where sparks will fly between these two. The two main characters had known each other in high school where we find from the read that Mic had always had feeling for Scott but they didn't really get together until after the death of his grandmother. What will happen as these two go out to a dinner? What question will Mic ask of Scott? Will Scott decide to leave Tatum and return to NY alone? Well, this is where I say you will have to pick up this delightful read to see if these two will get their HEA.

A HOME IN HOPEFUL by Bette Lee Crosby (Wyattsville #2.5)
A Home in Hopeful - Bette Lee Crosby

I've been wanting to read Bette Lee Crosby's books for quite some time. Have several on my Kindle and Bette was kind enough to send me a copy of Spare Change. Well, now I can't wait to get started. I just finished reading this short-but-sweet prequel in the Wyattsville series, A Home In Hopeful, and I fell in love with the characters right away.


Canasta Jones is an old woman recalling her younger years growing up on her Mama's farm in Hopeful, though times weren't always hopeful for Canasta and her family. As Canasta reflects, we learn how Hopeful came to be and, if you're paying attention, we also learn the meaning behind the title for Crosby's book, Spare Change. Canasta is a continuing character and I can't wait to learn more about her. Delightful.



A Home in Hopeful is part of Crosby's Wyattsville series that consists of the following four and a half books: (Books link back to Goodreads)


Spare Change (Wyattsville, #1)


Jubilee's Journey (Wyattsville, #2)


A Home In Hopeful (Wyattsville, #2.5)


Passing through Perfect (Wyattsville, #3)


The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd (Wyattsville, #4)



 I received A Home In Hopeful after signing up for Bette Lee Crosby's newsletter and blog. If you're interested in getting your own copy, you can visit Bette's website at http://betteleecrosby.com.

A Home in Hopeful
A Home in Hopeful - Bette Lee Crosby

Sometimes when I read historical fiction, I wonder if I am as soft as I feel I am. Reading how hard these individuals worked and lived just to survive, amazes me very time.  As they toiled and labored each day to survive, working from sun-up to sundown to bring food to the table or to help their neighbor, I wonder if I could survive such strenuous activities every day.   I know individuals say you adjust to what needs to be done and perhaps I would but just thinking about all the emotional and physical aspects of what they endured astonishes me.


I felt this way as I read this novella. With only 18 pages, the sights, smells and emotional aspects that were packed inside its pages were astonishing. Again, Bette Crosby does a fabulous job with her writing as I felt I was sent back in time as I read this novella. Mama wanted to provide a homestead for her family now that George had passed away. Mama didn’t hold back her feelings when her George passed away as I felt the tears fall from her eyes as she tried to stay strong for her family. Mama was attentive with her children, she made them pitch in to help support each other and she made them stay strong when the going got tough. Mama was the sturdy one in the family while the children complained about the working conditions, mama never said anything.   I loved Mama for her determination to stay strong for her family, to show to her family that she believed in them and that she wanted her family to work together for she knew that they could accomplish great things. As the family matured, they grew and life changed. The house remained a structure but its intention changes and grows. Mama names the house, Hopeful, a name that others can carry forward with them on their journey as they stop by and take a piece of it home with them.   Hopeful: a bright light when your future seemed dark. Hopeful: a place where you could come and rest your soul. Hopeful: where individuals welcomed you for who you are. Hopeful: your future now.

I received a copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.

All The Hopeful Lovers - Variations On A Theme
All The Hopeful Lovers - William Nicholson

Enjoyable and emotionally satisfying, All The Hopeful Lovers is a set of variations on an age-old theme. A large cast of inter-connected characters struggle with their emotional lives and find themselves caught between twin poles of idealism and compromise.


Young, old and middle-aged, they weave in and out of each other's lives, some impeded by selfishness, others by honesty; some gifted with good-looks, others with sensitivity, some borne aloft on confidence, others crippled by self-consciousness, all in search of love.


It's a challenging narrative structure - so many plot-lines, so many different solutions to the same essential problems. What carries the novel forward is the acute observation of human nature and the authenticity of the characters. These feel like real people, their weaknesses and strengths are familiar to us all.


Nicholson is always looking for the truth about the individual under the chaos of impulse and he finds that truth in the small details. As one of his characters, an elderly artist whose portraits have long ceased to be fashionable,  observes, "You paint what you see and what you feel. I can see you but I can't feel what you feel, I can only feel what I feel. So I latch on to the little clues I get from your face that take me to my own feelings."
