Title: Spider
Author: Ilsa Madden-Mills
Publication Date: November 13th, 2017
From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills comes a new standalone romance about a flawed hero and the woman he can’t forget.
"She crossed my path and changed my whole direction."
He calls himself Spider.
I just knew him as the sinfully gorgeous guy with eyes of fire that fate sat next to me on the airplane.
I didn’t know who he really was…British rock star…my stepbrother.
He kissed me because he thought we’d never see each other again. We would.
Everyone warned me about him.
They told me he was ruthless and cold and screwed up.
They said he’d leave me with a hole in my heart.
Maybe I should have listened.
Maybe I should have built up a fortress to keep him out.
But I crumbled instead.
They say an unbreakable thread connects those who are destined to meet. If that’s true, then the moment he sat next to me, we were bound together forever.
He just had to figure it out before it’s too late…

SpiderSpider by Ilsa Madden-Mills

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The anticipation of this book was well worth the wait! I fell in love with Spider from the Briarwood series & knew he had a dark past, a story of his own. This isn't all hearts but definitely about a certain flower, his "Rose" !

This is Our Story

This is Our Story

My husband and I are going on a journey together.  A healthy journey.  You can follow us on Instagram @scott_under_construction and @secretly_adorkable!  We have been married over 17 years and one day we were tired the way we were living.  No energy, eating out all the time, and spending more money on food when we could be putting that money back for retirement and to build a house.  We both had our own health issues going on and it was enough to make a decision to make a change now or have a shorter life.  

On April 5, 2017, my world changed.  I had to have a full hysterectomy because I had endometriosis really bad.  After my month of recovery, my husband and I started going to the gym.  The rest shows above of our healthy journey.  This is just the beginning.  Scott & I have lost over 145 lbs together and still counting.  We will keep you updated!

In the small town of Borders, New Hampshire, everyone knew 
everything. There was no escaping the gossip, lies, and scandal. You 
were sucked into it like an undertow of a dark lake.

Jenny Pearson would be on the first bus out of there after graduation. 
That was her master plan. Only 68 more days and counting. Nothing 
could happen in 68 days. Nothing could keep her there. Nothing or no 

Except… Draven Lepage.

In a town filled with lies and secrets, sometimes it’s best to keep your 
nose in a book. At least that’s what Jenny thought, until the bad guy 
spilled his deepest secret. Draven was sinking, and Jenny was his only 

“Do you trust me?” Draven asked.  I reached for, and grabbed his cold hand. The water was dark, the sky only lit by the graying moon. My lips shivered, my heart was beating 
immensely, but I held on tightly to his hand. It was my last chance. We 
sink or swim….

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This author always has me on the edge of her drama, angsty filled, and emotional beautiful written words. I would never expect any less from her.

The synopsis of this book scared me to death before I read it, not knowing what to expect. Into Dark Water sucks you in deep from the beginning.

CURVEBALL - Barlow Sisters #1
Maddie Barlow is used to being in control.
So when her father uproots their family to the small, troubled town of Armitage, just six months from her high school graduation, she’s struggling to cope. Worse yet, he insists the coach makes room for all of his daughters on the boys’ baseball team. The close-knit Armitage Pitbulls don’t want three girls messing up their season, and they’re going to do everything in their power to make sure the girls don’t make them look bad…especially Holden Carter—the smooth, good-looking captain of the team.

Maddie takes one look at him and knows he’s trouble. In spite of her instant attraction she’s determined to put the arrogant jock in his place, which is made doubly hard when her younger sister starts crushing on the guy. In an attempt to protect her sister from getting hurt, Maddie puts herself between them, only to face a curveball she never saw coming.

Her attraction to Holden is not supposed to turn into more…and when it does she’s caught between hurting her sister and turning her back on the first guy she’s ever really fallen for.
But a forbidden romance is not the only curveball Maddie and Holden have to dodge, because things aren’t what they seem in the quaint town of Armitage…and they’re about to work out that discovering the truth can be way more dangerous than living a lie.
Grab your copy today and escape into a small town where trouble lurks around every corner and romance is just a heartbeat away.

*****  4 Star Review by SAR Blog *****

I have loved everything this author has written in her NA and YA Genre and couldn't wait to read her new Barlow Sister's series.

Curveball is first book of the series. This is Maddie & Holden's story. All three of the sisters are best friends, Maddie, Max and Chloe. Maddie & Max are twins & Chloe is a year younger. The sisters grew up playing baseball in Columbus but in their Junior & Senior year, their dad had received a promotion and so he moved the family to Armitage California.

The story goes from their and the new school at Armitage High. Their dad gets them to try out with the Pitbulls, an all guy team full of hotness & arrogance. This gives Maddie, Maxi and Chloe somewhat of an incentive to show them what they can do.

Holden, their captain of the Pitbulls, have a problem with the girls joining the team and him and his best friend Luke try to sabotage their playing from the get go. Holden, them realizes these girls can play and the fiestiness of Maddie is getting to him. Can he trust her with his secrets? Can Maddie let someone as arrogant and bossy as Holden in her heart?

This book at first didn't draw me in as much as the other books I have read from this author, but after 40% of the book, it got better and enjoyed the rest! I cannot wait for Max's story

Brave Cover Reveal by Jennifer L Armentrout 09/20/2017 with Giveway

Brave Cover Reveal by Jennifer L Armentrout 09/20/2017 plus Giveaway!


Ivy Morgan hasn't been feeling like herself lately. Not like anyone can blame her. After all, being held captive by a psychotic fae prince hell-bent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld is bound to leave some mental scars.

It’s more than that, though. Something dark and insidious is spreading throughout Ivy, more powerful than she could ever imagine... and it’s coming between her and the man she’s fallen deeply in love with, elite Order member Ren Owens.

Ren would do anything to keep Ivy safe. Anything. But when he makes a life altering choice for her, the fallout of his act has far reaching consequences that threaten to tear their lives apart.
If Ivy is going to have any hope of surviving this, she must put aside the hurt and betrayal she feels, and work with not only those she loves, but with an enemy she would rather kill than ever trust. War is coming, and it soon becomes clear that what Ivy and Ren thought they knew about the Order, themselves, and even their enemies, has been nothing but a cluster of dangerous, deadly lies. Ivy knows she must be more than just brave to save those she loves--and, ultimately, to save herself.

Because behind ever evil fae Prince, there’s a Queen
