5 Pairs of the Most Comfortable Shoes Ever for Men The Air Max TN mens Merrell Intercept is a highly rated functional shoe that works for all day wear. It has a soft leather upper that hugs the foot for a comfortable feel. It sports an antimicrobial Aegis and Gore Tex lining that lets the feet breathe. They are waterproof but do not hold odor, so they always smell fresh. The Ortholite Anatomical Footbed and the air cushioned insole provide good shock absorption that supports your foot in a natural manner. Even though it is known more for its style than its function, the Nike Air Max 95 incorporates them both. This classic is already 20 years old, and that says something about comfort. Originally meant as a running shoe, it has become a popular casual shoe. The shoe keeps the foot in place because of a unique lacing system. The...

You and I Forever by Melissa Toppen - Book Review

     My favorite series coming to a happy ending. Anna and Bentley have been through a whirlwind of emotions. From fighting their urges to leaving everything on the field these two have come across the final step in their relationship: acceptance. Accepting that love really can conquer all and guide you to places they both didn't think possible. I have loved this story from the stripper pole to the soccer field and what these two have in store for you in You and I Forever was more that I could ever have imagined.

     The start of this book had me confused and thinking I was missing something, but once you catch up with you see that these two were preparing for a future and one of them didn’t know it. One of the hiccups in their relationship was really not a bad one, but one that was going to be a hurdle. Bentley and Anna met in a strip club she continued dancing even when they were building a relationship. Now, the moment of truth comes in and love enters the equation where Bentley gives Anna the ultimatum. I kind of saw it coming but for me, was one of the one questions I had in my head. Second favorite part in the book for me.

Breathless 2 by Shani Greene - Dowdell - Book Review

     Yes, they are back and right where you left them in the previous book. So it’s only befitting that this book is called Breathless 2 by Shani Greene-Dowdell. I actually really liked this book because it kept me on edge the entire time I was reading it. It had its moment where I was wondering what was really going on each of these characters mind. I was actually surprised about how well everything felt so balanced while leaving me gasping for air. My boyfriend was literally checking on me every second because I was yelling, screaming, and crying. This book had it all and definitely surpassed its former predecessor.

     Once you dive into the book, all of your questions are answered as you find out where all the character landed after Justine held Destiny at gunpoint. With Jacob realizing he was tricked, he makes emergency phone calls to protect his lady love. When the situation plays out, you see Destiny in the hospital opening up her eyes with Jacob nowhere in sight. Destiny’s mom and her ex-husband, Montie made sure Jacob wasn’t even allowed to see her.

Promotion Angling I had some cards produced for my book signing at Fiction Addiction on July 3. It is all part of the promotion game. Indie/Self-publishing is a wonderful thing. It isn’t as new as you might think. L. Frank Baum self-published “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”. Of course, back in the year 1900, publishing required a press. Baum contracted the George M. Hill Company to print the pages and hand-assembled the first copy himself, and probably many others I expect. These days, with Print-On-Demand and E-Book services, self-publishing has become a lot easier with respect to the production of the print itself. However, advertising and promoting is entirely up to the author unless one is able to spend fortunes to hire companies to carry that load. Most indie-authors are not in that position. Add to that the dwindling presence of bookstores and the task gets harder. You may not be aware, but...

You and I Together by Melissa Toppen - Book Review

     This book had a way of testing the ultimate from my favorite couple. Anna and Bentley are back and this time, we are testing this couple's resilience. If you haven't read the first book, go ahead and stop by the book listing to get you and I Alone. In You and I Together, you get to see Anna and Bentley come together as a couple. You see the joys that Bentley gives Anna on a daily basis, while also proving to Anna how much he loves her. Anna was a joy as well because you really do see her evolving into this person who does not want to live without Bentley in her life. I found this book to be an awesome sequel to the first book and found some things in this book that made me laugh, cry, and think about the work you put into building a relationship.

     The one thing that became open up to us was the insight into some of the friends and family of Anna and Bentley. In Anna's world, you get to see Lo and Andrea. These two really put a spin in Anna's world and made her see that Bentley could actually be good for and that she shouldn't deny what she's feeling just because she's afraid. Bentley's world was a little hard to crack, but once you get through you are introduced to Shira and Ethan.
