Man Flu by Shari J Ryan Release Day Blitz w/ 5 Star Review

Man FluMan Flu by Shari J. Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"Meaning of Man flu is a phrase that refers to the idea that men, when they have a bad cold, exaggerate and claim they have the flu."

For example, "I have contracted a potentially fatal case of man-flu. Your lack of compassion is putting my life in danger!"

I just finished a book that put me in tears & depression so this was a definitely the book I needed. It put me in tears as well but with laughter this time. It has been a while that a book made me laugh this hard. My hubby even questioned if I was ok. I would read a few lines and then he would be laughing with me!

Cora has got to be my favorite book child ever hands down and Hannah has to be one of my favorite Heroines just to put up with her exhusband Rick and Barbie next door! I am so in love with Logan. He left me swooning for more. I usually don't say this but I actually would like to see Rick get his own book. He was such a jerk but I really think in some ways he still loved Hannah and realized he was missing a great thing after all he did to her. Karma got him good is all I can say :)

Read this book! I recommend it to everyone!

Man Flu - A Stand-Alone Romantic Comedy
Shari J. Ryan
Now Available

I was trying to live every woman's dream, except my reality has been nothing but a nightmare job and a divorce at the age of thirty-two. Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse, my ex-husband, Rick, moved in next door with his life-size Barbie doll. So, that's been fun.

Then, life pitched me a curve-ball in the form of a retired major-league baseball player, Logan Grier. With his panty-dropping smile, he’s like an expertly photoshopped version of David Beckham, and he's single. Could life be perfect after all? Of course not. As always, there had to be a catch. Logan had a secret, and I couldn’t help feeling like the truth was dangling right in front of my face.

With Rick’s daily agenda of torturing me, Logan has been an enticing distraction, despite the little fact that he’s my temporary employee. Plus, I didn’t exactly care that his flirty behavior may have been a plan to get in good with the boss. In any case, I was willing to toss a few balls with him, seeing as my playing field hadn’t had any action in over a year.

That’s when it happened…my two worlds collided. Hot temp met the ex, and a full-on bromance was born, but that’s only the beginning.

The “man flu” has come out of nowhere and hit both Logan and Rick with a virus they’re claiming to be worse than childbirth. In fact, they’re pretty sure their end is near.

Will the “man flu” be the kiss of death, or will it be my window for an opportunistic change?

Can You See Me Release Day Blitz 01/09/2018

Forever Valentine PR and More is proud to present the release blitz for Regina Bartley's Can You See Me.
Tile: Can You See Me
Author: Regina Barley
Release Date: Jan 9 2018

My home was nothing but a pile of ashes, and my heart was in two places at once. Half of it with my parents, and the other half tucked away for someone special, for someone who was the light in all of this darkness.

With a home to build, a girl to prove myself to, classes to attend, a rodeo to ride, and parents to bring home, I was going to need more than just eight seconds.

It was time to tighten up the reigns and hold on, because LIFE was going to be the hardest ride of them all.

*Author Note* Book One -DO YOU LOVE ME, should be read before this one. This is a continuation of book one.
Do You Love Me
Available Now:
I had one chance. One chance to tell the boy of my dreams that I love him, one chance to finally get the guy.

And I blew it. 

I watched him leave. I watched as he went off to college to start a whole new life without me in it. A life filled with drinking, parties, and hot college girls. I suddenly became the pathetic young best friend, pining from afar, while he lived his life. 

It took me a long time to get a second chance, and now that I have it, I wonder if I’ll finally have the guts to confess my love or if it will all go up in flames.

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!

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.
