Book Blitz: Kissing Princeton Charming by C.M. Seabrook & Frankie Love with Giveaway
Kissing Princeton Charming
C.M. Seabrook & Frankie Love

Publication date: January 17th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

We have reputations for a reason.

His?

Spencer Beckett:

Princeton Charming. Ivy League Playboy. Rich AF.

Hers?

Charlotte Hayes:

Campus sweetheart. Virgin. Working her booty off to get through this last semester.

When a bet pushes these two together it’s fire and ice … and Charlotte is melting.

Fast.

But Charlotte has a chip on her shoulder. She doesn’t believe that fairy tales exists in the real world.

One kiss tells her this is a bad idea.

Two kisses tells her he’s too good to be true.

Three kisses and she’s royally screwed.

Spencer Beckett might be everyone else’s Prince Charming but can he sweep this princess off her feet.

 
 
EXCERPT:
 
His eyes are bright, like he sees something he likes, something he wants. It takes me a moment to realize that thing is me.
 
His hand cups my cheek. “You are an enigma, Charlie Hayes.”
 
I draw in a tight breath. “And you are very smooth.”
 
Wait, how does he know my last name? Or for that matter where I live. This whole thing is unnerving.
 
“You like smooth?” His mouth is so close. His lips practically on mine.
 
God, I want him. But warning bells blare in my head. I should tell him to leave. Instead, I stutter over words, “I’ve never had smooth.” It’s the truth. I’ve had boys kiss me who didn’t know what they were doing, sloppy and unremarkable. I’ve had guys kiss me who were desperate and trying way too hard.
 
But Spencer Beckett is neither a high school boy nor a clingy college guy. He is something else entirely. He knows what to do as he lifts my chin ever so slightly. As he licks his lips, tempting me to lick my own. His eyes search mine and for a moment I feel found — or at least seen.
 
“You said yes before,” he rasps, blue eyes searching mine.
 
I whimper, “I…”
 
“I’m going to kiss you now, Charlie.” His head lowers, and his lips brush against mine before I have a chance to change my mind.
 
One kiss and I know I’m in trouble.
 
One taste and I know my resolve is gone.

Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes
Pete The Cat: I Love My White Shoes - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete the Cat is a fun book for children to explore colors, repetition, prediction, or Cause and Effect. Pete the Cat is walking along in his white shoes when he steps into piles of strawberries, blueberries, mud, and water. Each time that Pete steps into a pile of something it dyes his white shoes a different color before stepping into water and it washing his shoes clean- but then his shoes are wet! Does Pete let this bother him? "Goodness No!" A fun activity that could engage students following this story is having students color a pair of white shoes. They have to indicate what they "stepped in" to make their shoes turn the color they colored them. But it cannot be something that Pete stepped in. For example, I could color a pair of shoes purple and say that I stepped in grapes. You could also have the buckets of things Pete stepped in and then have students match them to the color that his shoes on little cards turned to introduce cause and effect.

Opposites find their way to loving each other.
No Time for Love Raine English - Raine English

This was a sweet read. I loved both characters. Past experiences convinced them that opposites do not belong together. Kinsley was a strong woman but very much a workaholic, trying to run her own business. I enjoyed Dylan's love of nature and animals, and I thoroughly enjoyed the fun facts sprinkled throughout the story. This story made me smile, made me cry, and and was hard to put down.

I received an ARC of this story, and this is my unsolicited review.

Tragik, Liebe & die Erfüllung eines Traumes vor malerischer Kulisse
Deine Stimme in meinen Träumen - Joanna Martin

Informationen zum Buch: 
Das Buch „Deine Stimme in meinen Träumen“ aus dem FeuerWerke Verlag umfasst 200 Seiten und ist seit dem 27. November 2018 als Taschenbuch und E-Book erhältlich. 

Worum geht es: 
Christine zieht wieder zurück nach Schutzingen. Das „Kaff“, in dem sie aufgewachsen ist und wohin sie eigentlich nie wieder zurück wollte. Ihr Freund Stefan ist der verlässliche Anker mit dem sie nun endlich sesshaft werden möchte. Sie freut sich auf den nahen Kontakt zu ihrer Großmutter, den sie dann wieder haben wird, doch diese stirbt kurz nach dem Umzug und hinterlässt Christine einen Stapel geheimer Liebesbriefe, mit dem letzten Wunsch, sie zu ihrer großen Liebe Wilhelm in Kanada zu bringen. Mit dem Ziel, so schnell wie möglich wieder zurück zu Stefan zu kommen und ein tolles Jobangebot in Schutzingen anzunehmen, reist sie nach Kanada. Doch Wilhelm ist inzwischen leider ebenfalls verstorben. Zum Glück trifft sie auf seinen freiheitsliebenden Enkel Robert, der sie beim Lesen der Briefe unterstützt und ihr spontan ein paar Orte zeigen möchte, an denen Wilhelm sich gern aufgehalten hat. Eine Reise, bei der sie auch ihr eigenes Leben in Frage stellt. 

Meine Meinung: 
Einen Großteil des Buches machen die Liebesbriefe der Großmutter aus. Ein sehr tragischer und detailliert geschriebener Teil, der mit viel Emotionen gespickt ist und teilweise sogar zu Tränen rührt. Aber das Buch lebt auch von Christines eigener Geschichte, die sich den Ängsten ihrer Vergangenheit stellt und einen lang gehegten Traum wieder zum Leben erweckt. Der Roman motiviert auch dazu, selbst über seine Träume nachzudenken, die man vielleicht viel zu früh als „ist ja doch nicht realisierbar“ abgestempelt hat. Die Figuren sind eigentlich sehr gut ausgearbeitet und agieren stimmig, jedoch sind mir Stefan und seine Eltern ein wenig zu klischeehaft. Die Landschaft von Kanada ist sehr schön beschrieben und durch das tolle Gesamtpaket hätte es sogar eines meiner Lieblingsbücher werden können. Mittendrin war ich total begeistert. Doch gegen Ende des Romans rast die Geschichte förmlich dahin. Leider geht deshalb viel von der Atmosphäre und Emotion verloren, die gerade dort eigentlich ihren Höhepunkt erreicht. Es wirkt ein wenig, als hätte man die Geschichte unbedingt in die 200 Seiten „quetschen“ wollen. Ansonsten ist es aber ein toller Liebesroman in einem angenehm zu lesenden Schreibstil, den ich trotz des rasanten Endes gern weiterempfehle.

Fazit: 
Ein teils tragischer und warmherziger Roman mit einer tollen Message
