Release Date: 02/23/15

Blurb DescriptionNineteen-year-old Olivia Dean has the perfect reputation, the perfect boyfriend, and an increasingly perfect CV. She has it all, until Christian breaks up with her in public, calling her out as a self-gratifying sexoholic: the kind that plays solo. But Olivia doesn’t masturbate all night — the only thing she does is sleep … right?

Now all the boys on campus seem to want her attention for the absolutely wrong reason — including resident hottie, Logan Hays. He's pulling out his best moves to gain her attention, so resisting his sexy charm is hard work. With rapidly slipping grades, a disturbingly lurid reputation and demanding parents, Olivia must discover the truth behind her rumoured sleeping problem. If she doesn't, the perfect life she's worked so hard for may slip away, including the one person who has Olivia breaking all her rules — Logan.

What do you do when you’re asleep?

**MY REVIEW**

So, I should start by saying that Shh! SERIOUSLY had be intrigued- I was absolutely DYING to see how Stacey Nash dealt with the whole perfect girl with a sex-o-mania disorder, and for they most part she didn't disappoint! Let me explain better-

But, before I do, I should tell you that Shh! Is more CLEAN than most YA books, and despite it being about sex and sex- disorders, there are almost no graphic scenes, (almost) no lusting- and it's basically not a steamy book- so don't be alarmed, or even expect that. The blurb kind of gives it away that the 'rumors' being spread about Olivia are completely true, and so what I was waiting for was how she dealt with it (you know what I mean, right?)

While what I got was- nothing. A few chapters at the end of the book with her doing a bit of research into her 'problem' and then deciding to not spend the night with anyone, which wasn't really dealing but more like avoiding and staying in denial, even after she taped a video, just to be sure that she really was doing what everyone was whispering about.

If you leave out that, though, you have your typical perfect girl, rebel hot boy that just seems to you know, GET her like nobody else has ever done, and her general feeling of isolation, till she makes new friends, re invents her life, and lives happily ever after.

All I can say is that while this book was okay at best, I KNOW it had the potential to be SO much more- and I'm extremely sad that it wasn't.

A cliche read for romance lovers (and yes, Logan Hays is SWOOOON worthy;)

Release Date: November 10, 2015


No good deed goes unpunished…

The tables are turned with a vengeance in this tour de force sequel to MELT. Now it’s Dorothy who is fragmented and lost, while Joey keeps the promise he made her to better himself – even though she’s gone.

Joey tells his story “now ”—nearly a year after the shocking conclusion of MELT.

Dorothy tells what happened “then”— in the moments and hours after the Glock dropped.

This time the stakes are even higher, as Joey forces himself to move forward while Dorothy is frozen in place. But when he learns of a devastating decision, Joey races to find her before it’s too late. Truth, consequence, repercussion and modern medicine collide as pieces converge in this psychological, thrilling story, which begs the question: Can love really conquer all?


What do you think of the cover?

MELT by Selene Castrovilla
Based on true events, MELT is both a chilling tale of abuse, and a timeless romance. MELT will hit you like a punch in the face, and also seep through the cracks in your soul.

MELT is a brutal love story set against the metaphorical backdrop of The Wizard of Oz (not a retelling). When sixteen year old Dorothy moves to the small town of Highland Park, she meets, and falls for Joey – a “bad boy” who tells no one about the catastrophic domestic violence he witnesses at home. Can these two lovers survive peer pressure, Joey’s reputation, and his alcoholism?

Told in dual first person, Joey’s words are scattered on the page – reflecting his broken state. Dorothy is the voice of reason – until something so shattering happens that she, too, may lose her grip. Can their love endure, or will it melt away?

Title: Painted Maiden's Series
Author: Terra Harmony
Publication Date: 2013
Part of A Series?: Yes 

Blurb Description: Seventeen-year-old Serena is the youngest member of a dying race. The increasing acidity of the ocean is destroying her home, slowly eating away at the once thriving underwater landscape. But since the night of Serena’s birth, it is an outside force that most threatens their dwindling population. Werewolves, who once served as protectors for mermaids in the Kingdom of the Undine, now seek to eliminate all who dwell in the ocean—and Serena is about to find herself right in the middle of the deadly conflict.

Given the title of Werewolf Liaison, Serena is determined to make things right for her people. When she ventures to The Dry, she meets Liam, the werewolf with hazel eyes, and her whole world gets turned upside down. As Serena discovers the real history between werewolves and mermaids, she is left wondering who her true enemies are.

**INTERVIEW**
E-books, paperbacks, or hardcover?
E-books!  I spend a lot of time in school pick-up lines, and I always have my phone with me. Kindle app all the way, baby…

Cats or dogs?
Allergic to cats – not crazy about dogs although I have two.  Can I just go with fish?  “My fish just did the cutest thing.” I guess that doesn’t work for twitter updates.

Coffee or tea?
Coffee in the morn’, tea in the noon.

Favorite food?
Steak and potatoes!

What are 4 things you never leave home without?
Child one, child two, child three, and husband.  We do everything together *forced smile*. Hopefully child one has the car keys, child two has my purse, child three has my cell phone and husband remembered the snacks!

Where and when do you prefer to do your writing?
Wherever and whenever my muse hits me over the head.  I try to bring my laptop everywhere, because you never know when that cheeky monkey will strike.   I’ve been known to write on napkins, my arm, and on the back of my kid’s school projects.

If you were deserted on an island, who are 3 famous people you would want with you any why?
Johnny Depp (need the back hair for roping sea turtles), Magellan (need a navigator – plus his name is cool), and Chuck Norris to fight off the sharks as we make our way home.  I’d provide the entertainment value; read my book aloud or something. 

Favorite movies?
Recent movies, I'd have to say Guardians of the Galaxy. Old time favorites are The Sound of Music, Rat Race and Christmas Vacation, because I can watch them every day for the rest of my life and not get sick of them.

Favorite bands?
Mumford and Sons and The Avett Brothers. 

What is a movie or TV show that you watched recently and really enjoyed?

Game of thrones, Vikings, Walking Dead – wait, am I sure I'm writing in my preferred genre?

How would you describe The Painted Maidens books?
This is a three book, young adult fantasy series. Eco-fantasy, actually. There is plenty of action, some gore, some romance (which gets steamier as the series goes on), and it is definitely unique to anything you've read before. A young maiden (the youngest of her species, actually), Serena, is caught going beyond the borders of her kingdom to The Dry. As punishment, she is assigned to be the Werewolf Liaison which puts her in The Dry semi-permanently. She must contend with the hostile werewolf clan that has a long-standing, bloody history with the maidens. There are plenty of twists along the way and I have to say this might be suited toward those that enjoy the dark fantasy genre.

How did you come up with the idea for the series?
Really I just wanted to write about dragons. I still kind of do but I might be over the whole 'scaly creatures' thing by now. As I was running through dragon imagery in my head, I began to think about scales, and what other animals have scales, and the best ways to describe them. Then boom – mermaids. Then boom – a three book series. (Yeah, I wish it were that easy.)
My niche is the 'eco' part in fantasy books, so mermaids were really a good fit. Please understand, this isn't in-your-face lectures about being kind to the planet. It's about showing (not telling LOL) the reader what a beautiful world we have and why they should care about it.

When and why did you begin writing?
I was an adamant reader for the majority of my life. In fact, I got reprimanded for reading the explicit Sidney Sheldon novels in 5th grade.  In high school, it got more difficult to hide the books I was reading during class – so instead I wrote.  It always looked like I was just really into my note-taking.  I’ve been writing ever since!

Who is your favorite character? Is there a character in the series you think the readers will hate?
My favorite character is Darcy, the only human among the werewolf clan. You don't really see too much of her until book two, then more in book three. I love her because of all the characters in the book, she is the one that is really out of her element – and raising children in it. In fact, I love her so much that I am writing a story about how Darcy and Colin (her werewolf husband) met. It was only supposed to be short story as an added 'extra' to the boxed set, but I am enjoying it so much it may just turn into a full blown novel, or at least a novella.

Give us three “Good to Know” facts about you, something you could not read just about anywhere.
Fact 1: I’ve managed to ‘clumsy’ my way into being quite the coordinated person.  Does that happen?  I really think since I’ve tripped over everything under the sun, I became really good at catching myself – or whatever it is I happen to drop.
Fact 2: I love being creative – I’ve tried my hand at drawing, poetry, and photography.  All of which I love, and all of which I wished I had more time for.
Fact 3: I’m the type that doesn’t prioritize my ‘to-do’ list, because everything gets done – one way or another.  Yes, sometimes that can be more stress than it’s worth, but that is just me.  I can do everything and I can do it right now.

Some accidents are meant to happen…

Dr. Rihaan Mehta is a brilliant young neurosurgeon who has no inclination for love or marriage. According to him wives and girlfriends are annoying accessories that one can do without.

Rao enjoys exploring the dynamics of contemporary American culture blended with Indian customs and heritage to reflect the challenges and opportunities many Indian-American women face in real life.

Much of Rao's down time is devoted to creative pursuits, including writing fiction, poetry and photography. She is an avid traveler and has visited many locations around the world.

**MY REVIEW**

Okay, confession time! I'm Indian, and Indians probably will understand this book better than anyone else, because it's the culture we grow up in. The overbearing mother, the comparatively cooler father, the marriage that they're always talking about and the sibling that saves your ass no matter what...

It probably sounds similar to lots of American things, and in many ways, it is, but it many more ways, it's not (*winks to Indian Friends*)

And I'm not saying it's happened to me- the whole being forced to get married thing (yet) I'm only sixteen, but I know it will, and plus I've seen it happen countless times to my older cousins, so...

But, now, I must get to the book! The first chapter is extremely extremely weird, and I was a little put off, but then the book got SIMPLY BRILLIANT! Set it small town rural India, to a major Indian city to New York City- the culture shock, the atmosphere, the Hindi, the all Indian jokes, the absolutely swoon worthy Rihaan Metha, the storyline- everything!

It's like I can't describe it- but The Accidental Wife had me HOOKED! I loved how Naina and Rihaan slowly fell for each other, how things kept happening thatnmept them from being together, it was so realistic, how they let their pride get in the way of things, how they decided to stick to their stubborn ideals despite the obvious love and desire they were feeling! 

All I can say is- for an insight into Indian Society- READ THIS!
