FINDING FLYNN
Author: Alexandria Bishop
Series: Marlowe Series #1
– SYNOPSIS –

Ashtyn Moretti is ready for the best summer of her life. But her parents have other plans when they drop the bomb that her perfect summer will be spent… Away from home. Away from friends. Away from half her family. Armed with her Summer from Hell playlist and a Kindle full of book boyfriends, Ashtyn prepares to face what she is sure will be the worst summer of her life. Or will it be? Flynn James has one thing on his mind—the success of his band Marlowe. He’s focused and doesn’t have time for any distractions, and that includes facing his past. But then a petite brunette comes walking into the pub where he works. Neither Ashtyn or Flynn were looking for love but they can’t deny their obvious attraction. Ashtyn’s summer has been full of lies. The last thing she expects is for Flynn to be one of the liars too. Can she forgive his lies and turn her summer around? Can Flynn keep his secrets without losing everything? Or will this really be the Summer from Hell?

SGMyReview

Finding Flynn is a story about Ashtyn & Flynn. These two young adults (Ashtyn just turned 18, and Flynn is 21) meet when Ashtyn has a fight with her mum, and ends up in a bar where Flynn is playing music. The story revolves around them getting to know each other over the summer time. Ashtyn has been lied to in the past and refuses to allow anyone else in her life to lie to her. The story comes to a head when she discovers Flynn has lied to her, and has been keeping secrets. Flynn is a part of a band, and the secondary characters are slowly revealed to the reader in a way that will set them up for future reads.

Throughout the book, the author creates chapters from alternate points of view, allowing the story to flow and create tension and drama from both main characters. They act in a natural young adult way, although I feel that Ashtyn shows great maturity for an eighteen year old (this isn’t a bad thing!) Although the book is called Finding Flynn, I really think this book is all about Finding Ashtyn AND Finding Flynn. The ending is a little abrupt, but I know that the story will flow on as a part of a series, so it doesn’t seem like I’ve been cheated out of an ending.

I enjoyed reading this NA book, and recommend it to anyone after a mature young adult/new adult summer read.

Congratulations to Alexandria Bishop on her debut novel. Looking forward to more from the Marlowe series.

Ashtyn 

We’re strolling through a nearby empty park. Leaves are dancing in the light breeze, and a creek is babbling gently nearby. It’s quiet and peaceful but it isn’t doing anything to help calm my nerves. Although we came out here to talk, we haven’t said a word. I open my mouth and immediately close it. My mouth is dry like I just spent all day rocking out at Warped Tour, leaving my tongue like a sheet of sandpaper. I lick my lips hoping to produce some saliva and ask, “Are there any drinking fountains nearby?” Flynn gets a shit-eating grin and points to a giant statue with fountains on all sides. “Over there.” I take a giant gulp that I immediately spit right back out. Unfortunately, Flynn is standing within shooting range and gets a mouthful of the nasty liquid, which tastes like coppery rotten eggs. I’m not sure which one of us is more shocked but I can’t hold in the laughter. The pain in my side is almost unbearable. I almost don’t hear Flynn say, “You think that’s funny, do you?” Not understanding his tone, I look up to a blazing green fire. I don’t know whether to be scared or seriously turned on. I turn to run but he grabs me and flips me around. My body shakes with fear and desire as Flynn rubs his hands up and down my arms. I don’t speak, too terrified of what I would say but even more terrified of ruining whatever is happening. I nervously gnaw on my bottom lip and he zones right in on it and licks his own. Leaning forward, I run my hands through his silky hair. He lightly presses his lips to mine, stopping everything around us. Not satisfied with the featherlight kiss, I greedily run my tongue along his bottom lip and use my teeth to gently tug on his lip ring. A guttural groan escapes him, causing my entire body to tingle, right down to my toes. Suddenly I understand what all those girls are feeling in the romance novels I devour. This single kiss will ruin all future kisses for me. Letting go of his piercing, I push my tongue against his mouth and he grants me access. The moment our tongues tangle, the air around us thickens and everything shifts. Flynn’s hands trail my body. Everywhere he touches, my body is on fire. My back hits cold stone, and I wrap my leg around his waist. Flynn lifts me and both legs hook around him. His hardness hits my sweet spot and I let out a husky moan, causing him to rock against me. My eyes roll back into my head and I throw it back, unable to control myself any longer.

Pre-Release Review: The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak

heartbreakerscover60316-mediumGenre: Young Adult

“When I met Oliver Perry, I had no clue he was the lead singer for The Heartbreakers. And he had no idea that I was the only girl in the world who hated his music.”

Stella will do anything for her sick sister, Cara—even stand in line for an autographed Heartbreakers CD…for four hours. She’s totally winning best birthday gift this year. At least she met a cute boy with soft brown hair and gorgeous blue eyes while getting her caffeine fix. Too bad she’ll never see him again.

Except, Stella’s life has suddenly turned into a cheesy love song. Because Starbucks Boy is Oliver Perry – lead singer for the Heartbreakers. And even after she calls his music crap, Oliver still gives Stella his phone number. And whispers quotes from her favorite Disney movie in her ear. OMG, what is her life?

But how can Stella even think about being with Oliver – dating and laughing and pulling pranks with the band – when her sister could be dying of cancer?

MyReviewBadge

This was a really enjoyable YA Read. Immerse yourself in the crazy, prank filled, complicated world of the hugely popular boy band – The Heartbreakers. When Stella stops into a coffee shop, one early morning, she has no idea she’s just met one of the most popular singers in the world. Not just any singer, though. This singer is her triplet sisters FAVOURITE singer in the whole wide world!

Oliver Perry is the lead singer of The Heartbreakers, and when he meets Stella for the first time, there is an undeniable chemistry that passes between them. It’s just a shame he’ll never see her again. What ensues is a heart warming story of Stella and her journey of self-discovery. She has to deal with making grown-up decisions, and ensuring her sister (who is sick with Cancer), doesn’t miss out on the life she’s meant to lead.

Oliver provides his own amount of secrets, and grown up decision making that needs to happen, creating a really great coming of age story.

This story is brilliant for those YA fans, and anyone who may love 1D or 5SOS! You’ll want to be in Stella’s shoes as she hangs out with the biggest boy band in the world!

Book Review: Date with a Rockstar by Sarah Gagnon

Genre: Young Adult

Only one girl will win the cash prize…and a chance at love with Jeremy Bane. Monet isn’t just another lust-struck teenager trying to win the heart of Rock God Jeremy Bane–she needs the prize money from his new reality show to cure her illness.  Monet has Fluxem, a contagious disease that’s spread through saliva. It’s completely curable if you have enough money, which she and her single mother don’t. Now that she’s on the show, Monet has to work harder to keep her Fluxem hidden. She only has to keep the secret long enough to woo Jeremy Bane so he picks her as the winner. She doesn’t even care about the love part; the prize alone will change her life. But the real Jeremy Bane is nothing like she imagined. Monet finds herself fighting against feelings that make her want to give in to her attraction and Jeremy’s attempts for a kiss. The further she goes in the competition, the more impossible it becomes to resist him–and when the producers turn the tables and start digging up dirt on the contestants, Monet fears her secret will be revealed before she’s ready and ruin everything. The only way to win Jeremy’s heart is to tell him the truth, but confessing her disease could cost her the competition, the prize money, and him.

MyReviewBadge

Fantastic YA debut novel from Sarah Gagnon. She has truly nailed the YA market with this one. This book was a delightful read and I can’t wait to share it with the world. Not only is this a great “Rock star” read that deviates from the typical Rock star type books, but it is set in the future! The story revolves around a teenage girl (she’s 17) who suffers from a curable disease. Unfortunately she can’t afford the cure. In order to get the money, she decides to try her luck on a reality series with a teen heartthrob, Jeremy Bane. Think Justin Bieberesque type guy (but probably nicer!!?!!). There is so much in this book that will keep the reader hooked to the story. It’s like the Bachelor for teens, in the future, with a Rock star! I loved the flawed character of Monet, and how the relationship she develops with the main character isn’t cliché. Their chemistry is subtle and is really comfortable. There is truly so much happening, and with lots of little twists and turns this book is sure to keep the YA reader intrigued and turning the pages into the early morning.

ForeverKindofLove_ebooksmGenre: Young Adult, Mature Young Adult, Contemporary Romance

Will he be her forever triumph or her unexpected downfall?

Two lives.

 

One story.

And an unexpected journey to falling in love.

MyReviewBadge

I’m going to attempt to write this review in a way that doesn’t sound gushy, gushy, love! Seriously, though, I absolutely loved this read. It’s a definite favourite read of 2015! This was an absolutely delightful story about best friends who discover love really is all there is. Well done to Clara Stone, for writing an extremely fluid, well executed story line. The characters were beautiful and the author created a world that made me want to sit, read and not stop, until I was done (which is exactly what I did do!).      

Carrigan and Heath (AKA Ace and Iceman) have been best friends since a tragedy struck Ace at aged 7. Iceman becomes her pillar of strength. The reliability of these two on each other was gorgeous and I smiled a lot whilst reading. Their banter was fun, natural, and you know they are just so perfect for each other. Whilst the nicknames are never actually spoken about, I am left wondering if it’s a Top Gun reference?!?! Regardless, the author has a natural ability to bring a story together, and for that, I highly recommend you add this to your reading list as soon as possible! (In fact, don’t just add it, make sure you read it, too!) This is a great YA read for anyone 13 and up. Forever Kinda Love is a wonderful coming of age story that will leave you believing that love conquers all.

Excerpt: Her yoga pants stop just below the knee and are loose enough I can pull them up pretty far on her thigh. I freeze; it’s the first time since the hospital that I’ve really gotten to look at her wounds. “Hideous aren’t they?”
“Every mark, every line tells a story about someone you met over there. Each of these is a memory, this isn’t the way you would have wanted to keep them with you but that wasn’t up to you. They are your hero’s mark and you should be proud to show them off.”

Author Bio I am a born and raised Floridian who loves to travel but never forgets where my roots are. I married my high school sweetheart, have 3 kids and a crazy dog. Travelling and reading are my two favorite hobbies. I love all things Ireland and have been lucky enough to visit twice. I hope to one day watch a Major League Baseball game in every stadium in the country.

MyReviewBadge

This story definitely falls into the Young Adult category for me. I did find it a little difficult to get into the mind of the main characters, but it was because she was well written as a teen read (and for me, that was a long time ago!). The author does a good job of setting the scenes throughout and most certainly has a way of immersing such emotion into the story.

This story takes the reader through a timeline that spans a few years. The characters go through A LOT, and the story really does take the reader on that journey with them. It’s a story of heartbreak and loss, and the immeasurable feelings that come from that. At the same time, this story is about giving up one dream and creating another. Fighting back when you feel that all is lost, and living for what you believe in.

 The chapters are in alternate points of view which was done in a way that helped the story travel. I really think this story will appeal to teen readers, as well as anyone who likes a teen/young adult contemporary story. I am certain I know of quite a few young readers who would love this book. The cover is intriguing and sets the tone for exactly what is to come.

Fun Questions:

1. What’s your favorite color? I feel most confident in red and it looks best with my coloring. This is also the color I associate with passion so I’m very drawn to it. My bedroom is a very deep red. I also love purple; ironically I rarely wear it though. 2. List 5 facts about yourself. I played bagpipes all through middle and high school I have 3 kids who are all musically and athletically talented. I married my high school sweetheart and we’re still going strong after 15 years. I love to travel. I’ve been to Canada, Mexico, Ireland, Scotland, England and France. I’m a terrible homemaker! I work full time plus write on the side so I’m not a true stay at home mom but I still really suck at cooking and cleaning. My husband is much better at taking care of the house than I am. 3. What do you like to do for fun? With three kids I rarely have time to consider my own idea of fun. When I do get out it’s for fondue at Melting Pot, music concerts, bowling and mini golf. I used to read incessantly but since I started writing I’ve found there is no time for reading too! Book Questions: 1. When did you start writing? Over the years I’ve written small things but never took it very serious. I met some Indie authors last year and learned so much about this DIY world. It was the first time I thought about writing for publishing. Knowing you don’t have to go through publishing companies and face rejections was eye opening for me. 2. Who are some of you favorite authors? What are some of your favorite books? Tessa Dare is by far my favorite and I love all of her books. I recently stumbled upon Barbara Devlin and have enjoyed her Brethren of the Coast series. My daughter is a huge fan of dystopian YA, I read everything she does so we can discuss them. For that genre I really enjoyed the Legend series by Marie Lu. 3. Who inspired you so start writing? Last year I was inspired to write a story for my hubby. He hates to read, I’ve tried buying him various genres but he never finished one. I decided to try writing a story I thought he could get through and maybe have it turn him on in the process. Amazingly he finished my story but sadly it didn’t inspire him to read anything else. 4. What genre’s do you like to read that most? Historical romance is my favorite genre; I am in awe of anyone that can write it.

About the Author:

Cecily Paterson has given up sugar in pursuit of a healthier life more times than she can count. She’s probably not going to do it again because, chocolate. Cecily grew up in Pakistan where they don’t eat chocolate too much, so she now makes up for missed Cecily Paterson Author  opportunities. Her years at boarding school overseas were also largely chocolate-free, unfortunately, but she did learn a lot about teenage girl relationships, and especially that every girl needs two things: her own place to chill out in, and a kind, understanding person to talk to. Cecily now lives in small town NSW with her husband, four kids and two dogs. Her favourite kind of chocolate, in case you’re wondering, is the Lindt 70% dark blend. Mmmmm.

QandA

1. How would you describe the writing to publishing process? Any fun analogies?

Hmmm. It’s a lot like poking your eyes out with blunt pencils. Slow, painful and messy. The only bit I like about writing and publishing is having a book in my hand at the end.
2. Are you a plotter or a fly by the seat of your pants type writer?

I plot. With four kids and no time, I’m a big believer in doing things in the most time-efficient way possible. I have no time to faff around changing plots. However, like with my kids, I do let my characters have a bit of leeway as we go. I’m not super-strict with them.
3. Do you listen to music or are you a silence in the library writer?

PLEASE BE QUIET. DO NOT FLICK YOUR TOES. DO NOT BLINK OR SNIFF. DO NOT EVEN BREATHE. WE ARE WORKING IN HERE, ORRIGHT?

4. You’re going to a deserted island and you’re allowed 3 books to read for the rest of your life… which books and why?

Pride and Prejudice. Or anything by Jane, actually. Her books make me laugh every time, and I have so much so learn from her construction and characterisations.

A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth. The India setting reminds me of my childhood growing up in Pakistan, the characters are wonderful, and it’s incredibly long, which is useful, because I’ve got the rest of my life, right?

The Bible. In my estimation the most important and most interesting story ever told. Plus it’s incredibly long, which is useful, again, because, well…

New Release & Review – Anyone? by Angela Scott

ANYONE Cover SMALL  Genre: Young Adult. Action. Drama.

The end of the world? That’s the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters and deep philosophical exercises in school. No need to sweat it. So when sixteen-year-old Tess’s doomsday-dad builds a bomb shelter in their suburban backyard, everyone thinks he’s gone crazy….

…Until fire rains down from the sky, sinking whole cities into colossal craters and setting much of the world ablaze.

Tess’s dad gives her a few short minutes to gather her emergency bag and her freaked-out kitten, then leads her outside and into the underground shelter. Terrified, the last thing she expects is for him to leave her there all alone, but he has no callie catchoice—he must find her missing brother.

Before leaving, he makes Tess promise to keep the hatch door shut, not to open it for anyone but him, and to stay put until he returns.

But he forgot to tell her one thing: What is she supposed to do if he never comes back?

Surprisingly, I wasn’t sure how I was going to with this book. I’ve been watching so much The Walking Dead and Zombie or Apocalypse stuff of late that I was sure it would all blend in together. Luckily, Angela Scott has done a wonderful job of creating a worlds end that left me begging for more! I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I think this is my “first apocalyptic” story I’ve read (as I said, watched is different). The story starts with an action packed scene of Tess frantically racing around her house as the world begins to end. Her dad takes her to a bomb shelter he’s prepared, (cue flashbacks of Doomsday Preppers! – that show!!!!!)  and then he leaves with the promise of coming back…but he never does….

IMG_2598From this moment, the reader is taken on a journey with Tess, as she navigates burning suns, sink holes, massive tornadoes and hail storms. All with her kitten, Callie, in tow. Along the way she meets a couple of characters who helped to keep the story line fresh, and interesting. I really love how the author has fleshed this story out, and although you might think you know what’s happening, suddenly there’s another corner turned and you’re left wondering. This book has given me a severe book hangover. I stayed up late into the night reading it because I had to know what happened in the end. Grab it now, and read, because I’d love to know your thoughts.

Apparently she also writes zombie stories…I must get onto these!

About The Author:
I hear voices. Tiny fictional people sit on my shoulders and whisper their stories in my ear. Instead of medicating myself, I decided to pick up a pen, write down everything those voices tell me, and turn it into a book. I’m not crazy. I’m an author.

For the most part, I write contemporary Young Adult novels. However, through a writing exercise that spiraleme3d out of control, I found myself writing about zombies terrorizing the Wild Wild West—and loving it. My zombies don’t sparkle, and they definitely don’t cuddle. At least, I wouldn’t suggest it.

I live on the benches of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains with two lovely children, one teenager, and a very patient husband. I graduated from Utah State University with a B.A. degree in English, not because of my love for the written word, but because it was the only major that didn’t require math. I can’t spell, and grammar is my arch nemesis. But they gave me the degree, and there are no take backs.

As a child, I never sucked on a pacifier; I chewed on a pencil. I’ve been writing that long. It has only been the past few years that I’ve pursued it professionally, forged relationships with other like-minded individuals, and determined to make a career out of it.
