Color Me Bad (a novella)- Sharon Sala


"The novella centers around the four women who run the Curl Up and Dye hair salon and their relationships with the quirky customers of small-town Blessings, Georgia. Their meddlesome efforts at match-making run awry, but there's always another makeover just around the corner."

This e-book novella was just the little pick me I needed. I was feeling a bit blue but this book had me smiling and cheering in no time. Filled with Ms. Sala's trademark great characters, this fun and heartwarming novella will have you wanting to return to the town of Blessings again and again. Don't miss out on the start of what promises to be a great series!

Twilight Hunter
HOLY SMOKES! Boy, did I score with this ARC! (Twilight Hunter - OUT AUGUST 27TH)

I can not say enough about how much I LOVED this book. In a genre where it can be hard to come up with something fresh, not to mention gripping and well- written, Ms. Ballenger has raised the bar.

I am a total fan girl!

This book is sexy and fast paced and best of all it has characters that are to die for! Throw in a heinous villain and well now..... you can see why this author is now on my auto buy list.  I found the traces of humor right up my alley and the sex scenes, especially one in particular, pretty damn hot.


 Hunters of the supernatural, the Execution Underground are an elite group tasked with protecting humanity…but what happens when danger collides with desire?

Jace McCannon has one loyalty: the Execution Underground. Despite his mixed blood, his hatred for the werewolves he hunts is legendary. But in his search for a sadistic killer, Jace finds himself face-to-face with a stunningly seductive packmaster…and longing for a night with his mortal enemy.

Nothing can stop Frankie Amato from defending her kind—or catching the rogue responsible for killing women in her territory. For that, this alpha female needs Jace's skills more than she wants to admit. But as their investigation exposes evil truths, need burns into a passion that dare not be fulfilled. For to do so will have deadly consequences for them both….
After Dark: The Darkest Angel\Shadow Hunter

I am kicking myself for not realizing Ms. Ballenger has another Hunter story in the book After Dark. I'll be on the hunt for it later today!

Don't miss out on this exciting new series!   AFTER DARK IS OUT NOW!

Sleep With the Lights On by Maggie Shayne

I was really excited when I heard about this book because it sounded so good. I was lucky enough to able to read an ARC e-book of it. At first I wasn't sure if I would like the mixed POV's- heroine Rachel is first person, hero Mason/the rest of the novel is third person but because the book was not what I could call a romance, it worked for me. I was surprised that I liked the mix. I was happy to discover that the upcoming December book by Ms. Shayne also will feature these characters because both characters are deeply flawed and I'm curious to see if things I felt weren't wrapped up will be addressed. This book was well written and fast paced and I couldn't put it down. Although a bit predictable in some regards that was okay with me. I'm also a sucker for books with dogs in them. I have a bulldog, and Myrtle is spot on! Ms. Shayne has developed a book with characters I want to continue reading about. There are a few creepy parts- Ms. Shayne has cinematic style that may have some of you sleeping with the lights on long after you turn the last page



Through the eyes of a killer…
Rachel de Luca has found incredible success writing self-help books. But her own blindness and the fact that her troubled brother has gone missing have convinced her that positive thinking is nothing but bull.

Her cynicism wavers when a cornea transplant restores her sight. The new eyes seem to give her new life, until they prove too good to be true and she starts seeing terrifying visions of brutal murders—crimes she soon learns are all too real.

Detective Mason Brown's own brother recently died, leaving behind a horrific secret. In atonement, Mason donated his brother's organs, though he's kept the fact quiet. Now he wants to help Rachel find her brother, but when he discovers the shocking connection between her visions and his own brother, he suddenly has to do everything in his power to save her from a predator who is somehow still hunting from beyond the grave.
