Yes, oh yes! It's the best time of the year for the BEST OF 2014! People, this was a huge decision for me. Too many amazing books this year! Sensory, bookerly overload! So what I did was picked one of my favorite authorly friends, and picked one of my favorite books of her's from 2014. One lucky entry will snag a digital copy of this little pretty. So, without further ado. Drum roll, please....
Dakota Halifax loves to be in love. In fact, as one of Las Vegas’s premier wedding planners, she’s built a whole career around romance. Which is why her own wedding has to be nothing short of perfect. And then her fiancé jilts her. While she’s waiting in her wedding dress. On a cruise ship already out at sea.
Once back on dry land, Dakota tries to pour her heart into her business and weekly wedding advice column, Get Ready to Wed. But how can the heartbroken celebrate others’ true love? When she reconnects with her childhood best friend, surprisingly sexy and all-grown-up casino bouncer Brendan West, Dakota wonders if maybe she can fall back in love with being in love.
But then her ex reappears, begging for another chance, and suddenly Dakota questions if she’ll ever understand love. Can someone once-burned and twice-shy ever find her way down the aisle again?
Who doesn't love a great wedding book, right?

Welcome to my stop on the Stuck in Books Twelve Days of Christmas giveaway hop.
I totally dig reading NA, and with two NA books to my credit, I love it even more! I've decided to give away one copy of the ebook SNEAKING CANDY by Lisa Burstein. I completely fell in love with this book. It's smart (the mc is in grad school) and funny (seriously, I laughed out loud so many times) and with just the right amount of sexy (you'll see).
Here's the quicky rundown:
A graduate student by day, an erotic romance author by night, a forbidden attraction I can't deny...
I ever wanted was to make a name for myself as Candice Salinas,
creative writing grad student at the University of Miami. Of course,
secretly I already have made a name for myself: as Candy Sloane,
self-published erotic romance writer. Though thrilled that my books are
selling and I have actual fans, if anyone at UM found out, I
could lose my scholarship...and the respect of my faculty advisor,
grade-A-asshole Professor Dylan.
Enter James Walker, super-hot
local barista and--surprise!--my student. Even though I know a
relationship is totally off-limits, I can't stop myself from sneaking
around with James, taking a few cues from my own erotic writing...if you
catch my drift. Candy's showing her stripes for the first time in my
real life, and I've never had so much fun. But when the sugar high
fades, can my secrets stay under wraps?

I saw this on one of those Yahoo "news" links and had to share it:
"First of all, who cares if people hate you? There’s always a guarantee that certain people will dislike you. There’s never any guarantee that anyone will like you. So if anyone likes you at all, you’ve already won.” ~Chelsea Handler
Today is Election Day here in the US, so I'm writing this post to both remind myself, aaaaaaand to share with you thatDefinitely, Maybe in Loveis up for best romance at the BTS Red Carpet book awards! I'm super honored and excited and jazzed and all the good things. Obviously, I'm on the campaign trail now, kissing babies (and hot guys, if there are any around) in exchange for votes. :) If you'd like to know a bit about Def Maybe in Love before you cast your vote, just think: "Pride & Prejudice" set in college and Mr Darcy wears argyle sweaters and his kisses taste like cranberries. Or, you could hop on over to its Amazon link HERE, or HERE to see the novel's playlist of smexy make-out songs. After all that, I'd love you forever if you'd clicky HERE to vote for my dreamy, cranberrry-lovin' book. :)
Her theory of attraction is about to get a new angle...
Honeycutt wants two things: to ace her sustainable living thesis and to
save the environment. Both seem hopelessly unobtainable until her
college professor suggests that with a new angle, her paper could be
published. Spring swears she’ll do whatever it takes to ensure that
"Whatever it takes," however, means forming a partnership with the very hot, very privileged, very conceited Henry Knightly.
is Spring's only hope at publication, but he's also the über-rich son
of a land developer and cash-strapped Spring’s polar opposite—though she
can't help being attracted to the way he pushes her buttons, both
politically and physically. Spring finds there's more to Henry than his
old money and argyle sweaters…but can she drop the loud-and-proud act
long enough to let him in? Suddenly, choosing between what she wants and
what she needs puts Spring at odds with everything she believes in.
Definitely, Maybe in Love is a modern take on Pride and Prejudice that proves true love is worth risking a little pride.
Welcome to my stop on the Entangled Publishing GET WICKED blog hop!
I love everything about Halloween. The fall weather, the costumes, the candy, and especially the spooky movies. I watched a real goodie just last night. Insidious. Anyone seen it? Eek! My favorites are the classics, like the Friday the 13th series, the original Carrie, or a great Hitchcock. Psycho is still my #1. Anyway, Happy Halloween, all my pagan friends. Now lets get to the good stuff...
