Deemed a thief, a brute, and a slut by one’s own family and schoolmates might take its toll on your average fifteen-year-old, but Xirena makes no apologies. Kai, the smoking hot seventeen-year-old boy next door can’t stop thinking about the girl everyone in town says is no good. As his obsession for her turns to fiery love, he is hell-bent on unlocking her heart and setting them both free from what their society demands.

What they’re saying about it:

“If you’re looking for an original and realistic romance with a feminist heart, you won’t do any better than this unique and touching novel.” (Randal K. Jackson, award-winning science writer and author)

“The story reads almost like a poem with the curt and pensive sentences. Like the weather, these words expressed both the sensitivity and brutality of humans against the backdrop of lovely China.” (Sandra Lopez, author of Esperanza: Beyond the Gardens.)

“It is mystical, magical, scary and delightful all at the same time.” (Amazon review)

Marlo Croft, canine behaviorist at the Dog Haven Sanctuary in Halo Peak, Washington, has her life neatly organized. The trauma of her past is well buried, her emotions tamped down, and rehabilitating and rehoming damaged and unwanted dogs gives her the focused, contained life that makes her feel secure.

The arrival of a new rescue dog, Justice, also brings the unwelcome distraction of a handsome stranger who is to shadow Marlo and Justice through the dog’s rehabilitation.

Suffering guilt over the death of his wife, New Zealander Adam Guildford’s short contract in the US to research dog fighting is what he hopes will pull him out of the limbo he has floundered in for the past four years. He arrives prepared to tackle the emotional and behavioral needs of the rescued dogs, but completely unprepared for the way his presence unnerves Marlo and awakens his own dormant feelings.

As they start to gain Justice’s trust, Marlo loosens her grip on her inner fears and the simmering attraction between her and Adam heats up. Adam works carefully to dismantle the emotional barricades Marlo erected, until one day he unwittingly delivers the horror from Marlo’s past straight to her doorstep, an action that tears the three of them apart.

This contemporary romance contains adult themes including sexual situations, language and mature subject matter.

Set in rural Georgia in the 1960s, BREAKING TWIG is a coming-of-age novel about Becky (Twig) Cooper, a young woman trying to survive the physical and emotional abuse of her mother, Helen, a beautiful, calculating woman who can, with a mere look, send the meanest cur in Sugardale, Georgia running for its life.

Not even Twig’s vivid imagination, keen wit, and dark sense of humor is enough to help her survive the escalating assaults of Helen and a new stepbrother, but help comes from an unexpected source–Frank, her stepfather. Sometimes, having one person who loves and believes in you is all a girl needs to keep hope alive.

Often raw and irreverent and sprinkled with all the Southern flavoring found in a good bowl of chicken and dumplings, BREAKING TWIG, is about finding love where we least expect it, destroying lives with easy lies, and realizing each of us determine our own truth.

stillStill Life with Strings by L.H. Cosway
Genre: Erotica, Romance
.99 Days: July 24-26
Where to Buy:
Amazon

 

My name is Jade Lennon and I stand still for money.

The night I saw Shane Arthur watching me everything changed. A man in a suit always catches my eye, but it was the way he looked at me that was different. Like he knew me or something. He didn’t know me, especially not in my costume. My sobriety rests on staying away from men, but there was something about him that made me throw caution to the wind.

After all, I was never going to see him again, right?

Wrong.

Standing still isn’t the only way I make my money. I also bartend at a concert hall. Never in my wildest dreams did I think Shane was going to show up there. Not only that, but he’s the most recent addition to the orchestra. So now on a daily basis I have to resist one of the most beautiful men I’ve ever met and he plays the violin. For me that’s one hell of a deadly cocktail.

He wants me to teach him how to live. I’m not sure how much a twenty-six year old recovering alcoholic who works in a bar and moonlights as a living statue can teach a world class concert violinist, but I’m sure going to try.

stuStudent Bodyguard for Hire by Callie James
Genre: Young Adult
.99 Days: July 22-24
Where to Buy:
Amazon

 

When her younger brother becomes victim to Ridgeview High’s worst group of bullies, Peyton Greene sets out to hire the most feared student in school to protect him. It never occurs to her that the antisocial, two-time senior won’t agree to do it, even for the large sum she’s willing to pay.

Sam Guerra can’t afford to pick a fight at school and risk another expulsion, but after witnessing the beginning of a humiliating locker room beat down, he gets involved anyway. Soon more students approach him with offers of money and requests for protection. Having zero interest in becoming anyone’s bodyguard, he finds other students willing to take his place for the same fee. A growing list of names rapidly morphs into a reason to approach the pretty geek again, and despite the stark differences in his and Peyton’s backgrounds, they begin seeing each other outside of school.

But everything changes when Peyton transforms the list into a bodyguard website for a class project. Not long after go-live, she’s struggling to maintain the burgeoning database of bullied students matched with student bodyguards. What happens next turns the senior class assignment into a non-profit, nationwide project that will ultimately tear her parents’ marriage apart and the town in two as it fuels the hot topic of violence to stop violence in an already divided nation. Her struggle to do the right thing becomes even more complicated when she learns of Sam’s dark past and equally violent present—information that could compromise their relationship, her reputation, and the integrity of a successful, anti-violence project she refuses to quit.

What they’re saying about it:

Great “life lesson” book!
This is like a whole series of self-help books all rolled up neatly into 104 pages and disguised as a fiction story! Very clever indeed! You could read this book and not even know that you are learning something. I found myself highlighting and taking notes all through the book, but also really enjoying the story.

A Nice Christian Parable

This book was a great addition to Christian Fiction. I use the word fiction loosely as the story itself was a work of fiction, but the lessons and biblical references are very real. I enjoyed the fact that this book wasn’t a boring, step-by-step instructional on how the author thought the Christian walk should be. She wrote a story about a very relatable and likeable character, Ms. Virginia Bean, as she faced real life struggles, fears and hardships. It was also amazing that this book came to me at a time when I needed to hear what it takes to listen, to trust, to be optimistic, to have tenacity and constancy. Great job Kathryn Elizabeth Jones. Thank you for writing such a good book and for following your faith in God.

Darker Amazon 650 x 1009Drowning in the Shallow End by Charlie Mellor
Type: Memoir
Genre: Dark humor
Price: Reduced from $8.99 to £0.99 from 07/20/14 – 07/25/14
Where to Get It:
Amazon      Amazon UK

 

A darkly comic memoir about a secret obsession, revealing the depths to which people can sink, before they realise they’re in too deep…

For years, all Charlie Mellor wanted was to meet the alluring Pennie Fenton. Unfortunately for him, this wish came true. Captivation with the corrupting Miss Fenton quickly developed into an overpowering infatuation which sent his life spiralling out of control and jeopardised everything he held dear.

It was because of Miss Fenton that he lost touch with his family and friends, got involved with the occult, upset members of the Greek Underworld and even volunteered one of his own fingers to be crushed by a sadistic stranger. Before he could free himself from her curious charms, he would need to acknowledge her real identity and expose the deep, dark secret she had kept hidden from him. Only then, would he find the courage to rebuild himself through a bizarre appearance on national television, where in front of millions of viewers, he would abandon all dignity and reveal the full extent of his downfall.

This candid true story chronicles one man’s hapless attempts to free himself from a cruel and manipulative companion. Peppered with black humour, it unveils the damaging impact of an unyielding obsession. Positioned as an offbeat tale of misplaced mesmerisation; this unconventional memoir taps into the universal themes of attraction, temptation and choice. It includes irreverent observations on life, loss and the enormous void between these two. Only at the end of the book do readers see that nothing is quite what it seems and this is in fact, a modern day parable about the redeeming power of love.

Appeared in both the Amazon top 5 memoir listings and top 25 humour listings.

London Book Fair Litfactor finalist.

REVIEWS:

‘Cohesive and heartfelt. A confident and well-crafted book’ – BubbleCow.

‘Mellor writes with a deft hand, his comedy has a light, wry touch, combined with a self-deprecating sense of irony that is utterly endearing’ – Alan Strong, US book blogger.

‘I have never had an obsession about anything, secret or otherwise. There are times that I feel that I have missed out on something in life because of this, maybe I should read this book and learn how to be obsessed’ – Bill Drummond, artist, musician, writer and record producer.
