11TH COMMANDMENT Christensen, Mark A. CreateSpace (188 pp.) $16.00 paperback, $16.00 e-book ISBN: 978-1463606855;   March 5, 2012   BOOK REVIEW   In his debut novel, Christensen imagines a new parent’s struggle to prevent his abusive childhood from negatively affecting his own parenting.

New Release Review For Take Me Now (Take Me Now #1) by Faith Sullivan



I just want to say a few words about Faith Sullivan. Usually this is not the norm for me but I feel like I have to share with my readers why I love Faith Sullivan's writing. The first book I ever read from Faith was Unexpected. Unexpected is a story about a girl who is in New York attending college when 9/11 happens. I have to say that I laughed and I cried while reading this book.Faith knows how to write a story like no one's business. She catches you right from the first page and keeps you riveted to the end needing more like you need air to breathe. I am so proud of Faith.

Cover Reveal & Excerpt From Playing With Her Heart (Caught Up In Us #3) by Lauren Blakely



Synopsis: When you’re acting the role of a lifetime, how can you know if love is real—or all just a part of the show? Twenty-three year old rising theater star Jill McCormick has built a life out of pretending. Pretending she’s happy, pretending her long-distance crushes add up to something real, pretending she’s not haunted by the dark secret that shattered her world six years ago.
