Her Best Shot Hot & Nerdy # 1 By: Shannyn Schroeder Releasing September 29th, 2014 Lyrical Press: Kensington

With college graduation looming, three childhood friends vow to make spring break their last blast of pure fun. But at least one of them didn’t count on such incredible heat… 

Layla Sharpe is definitely more math ninja than bikini babe, and her future has been calculated with razor precision. Convinced to let loose over spring break, Layla is finally ready to party—until her car breaks down halfway to her destination, leaving her stranded in Georgia with a mouthwateringly hot pool shark. She knows more than enough about angles to learn the game, but this week she wants him to appreciate her curves…  

Phin Marks has never met a girl like Layla. She’s more Star Wars geek than seductress, and when he offers her a place to stay while her car is in the shop, he’s counting on the attraction between them to set the nights ablaze, no strings attached. But every moment he …



This week we are doing a review:


In this sizzling and hilarious contemporary e-book romance, pop sensation Ivy Hudson returns to her small town to face her ex. Only trouble is, she made her Taylor-Swift-like career with the hit song “Size Matters”—and the football hero has had to live it down ever since.

Five years ago, high school sweethearts Ivy and Blake’s relationship imploded and both their lives were changed forever.

Ivy’s angry song about their breakup, called “Size Matters,” hit the top of the charts and Blake became a national laughingstock. He’s salvaged his career and returned to Rosewood to be the high school football coach, regaining his status as town hero and leading the boys to the state championships.

When a tornado whips through town and destroys the high school gymnasium and stadium, a committee is fo…

Welcome back!

Today we are talking about romances with military heroes or heroines, a very popular theme in recent years. 

I'd like to take a moment to thank all of our service men, women, and animals that help to protect America both on our soil and across the world.

I'm going to list a few of my favorite romances that I've read that have military heroes/heroines/themes:

About the book:  
Soldier Mike Nichols has come to Sweetness, Georgia, for one reason: to get help for his troubled black Lab, a decorated rescue dog, at the town's new military dog training facility. He doesn't expect to be referred to dog groomer Lacey Lovejoy instead! Straitlaced Mike and free-spirited Lacey couldn't be more different. Yet the longer he works with Lacey, the more his attraction to her grows. They clash often, but their heated encounters also lead to a steamy night together that leaves them both reeling. But when Lacey's job is done and it's time for Mike to move on, can th…

Ten years ago, he saved her life … and she’s never forgiven him for it.

Claire Masters never planned to return to Pecan Creek. After a suspicious fire killed her mother and sent her own life up in flames, she was ready for a fresh start – far away from the small Texas town.

Ethan Banks never asked to be the fire chief, but it’s the family business. Asking the FBI…and Claire Masters for help is the last thing he wants to do.

When a series of fires strikes the town, as one of the FBI’s top arson investigators, Claire reluctantly returns before the fires take a fatal turn.

Now the pair is forced to work side by side, and they’re reminded the heat between them has nothing to do with fire.

Welcome readers!

It's another Thursday and today's topic is all about Male-Female...point of views in point of views...

First of I'd like to address point of view definitions in general pertaining to fiction (although later I'll be mainly discussing romance genre books).

To simplify I'm paring down to the two most common/very basics:

Third-person point of view is when your story is being told to you by an outside narrator who is not part of the story. Characters are usually referred to by their names and by use of he/she. There are variations to this type of POV but the most common is omniscient. This is when the storyteller knows everything- including everything from the characters  in regards to their thoughts, feelings, perspectives etc.

First-person  POV is usually from one person only and done through the use of "I" and/or "me". The reader is limited in knowing only the storyteller's thoughts/feelings etc.

Recently, I've read fiction with…
