Reasons to pick up Truth & Temptation by Riley Edgewood

Today is Truth & Temptation Release Day!

Happy release day, Riley! Hope it’s full of cheese ❤

Here’s an excerpt of my review on Amazon: “Truth & Temptation is everything I love in a book and it’s even more, it touches upon a topic that is a difficult one but it does it with such sincerity because Teagan is a fully-fledged character that comes into your heart. Oh and there are hot and steamy scenes too. Yes. Hot. Hot. Hot.”

But I’m going to do something a bit different today and share with you in video some reasons to pick up Truth & Temptation…

(Amazon | iBooks | Barnes & Noble | Kobo)

And now that you’ve watched me say a lot of hmmm, here’s all the info about Truth & Temptation. Plus, Riley has a pretty amazing giveaway going on.

*********

She’s a liar. He knows the truth. 

Teagan Walker gets around. Ask anyone—hell, askher. She’ll own it with a smile. But beneath that smile is a girl whose parents didn’t want her. Whose grandparents raised her without affection. Whose struggle with a burning anger threatens to consume her, though she’d rather punch someone in the face than talk about it. With a new job looming, she’s determined to work her way into a better life. When she meets the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, she decides to kick it off with a bang. And she makes her move.

But he’s got moves of his own, and before the night is out, he strips her of way more than she means to reveal—without removing of a single piece of clothing. That comes, too, of course. He’s gotten under her skin like nobody before him, and what’s the harm in one night with a sexy stranger? Exposed or not, she never has to see him again.

Except she does.

On Monday morning, they come face-to-face. He’s the son of her new CEO—and he threatens to bring her entire world crashing down, making her face every lie she’s ever told.

What I’m reading

I just started THE LIST. I am probably going to have many thoughts about this book and I’m looking forward to set some time aside to read it.
THE LIST

What else I´ve been up to

  • Using my new planner. During our writing retreat, we started talking about planners, especially Erin Condren’s planners and I received mine last week. LOVE IT!
  • Taking care of Plato The Dog. He broke part of a nail two nights ago, he’s not in pain and lets me clean his paw. So yesterday, we took it easy…2015-02-17_1424205940
  • One of our neighbors is raising money for charities while selling beautiful jewelry.  Her husband is running the Vermont 100k this July. He is raising money for the Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports program. This program empowers individuals with disabilities throughout the year, to enjoy sports and recreation  I’ve received my earrings on Friday and I LOVE THEM. You can find more info here.earrings

What works for me

Each night, I try to write 3 things I’m grateful for in my planner. It’s a way to help focus on the positive and I find that it works for me.

I can’t wait to check all your posts and see what you’ve been up to 🙂

What I’m reading

I’m scaring myself (and doing research at the same time for my NA thrillers) by reading
And I am in the middle of  THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT by Veronica Rossi

What else I´ve been up to

  •  Preparing for the arrival of our dog…we’re now only waiting to hear when we can go and pick him up.
  • 10937362_10103379857255818_221378814_nRe-watching Friends thanks to Netflix.

  • Having fun with Megan Whitmer‘s #vlogagram …you can find me using #Elodievlogagram

What works for me

Trying to get into a schedule…I was oh so productive when I had basically no time and there are two things I noticed that I no longer have a day job.

  1. There are a LOT of things to do inside the house, a LOT and those things take time.
  2. I need to have a schedule to somewhat stick to. It helps me to achieve some of my daily goals.

I can’t wait to check all your posts and see what you’ve been up to 🙂

*waves* I´m over on Alex´s blog today (and gave my first interview :D)

I´m still here.

Still sorry about not blogging as much these days but I´m spending as much time as I can with my manuscript and work has been very very busy!….But see those puppy eyes – those are exactly the same kind of puppy eyes I´m making right now!

I did answer some interview questions though! My FIRST BLOG INTERVIEW!!!!!!

It´s over on Alex´s blog…Alex is one of the wonderful and talented writers I met via Mandy´s class…

Hope you´re all doing well!  Can´t wait to catch up!

Books, reading, Top Ten Tuesday, writing

Top Ten Bookish People I’d Love To Meet

This Top Ten Tuesday feature is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and I first came across it on Jaime´s blog. It´s a lot of fun and they post the topics way in advance!

Top Ten Bookish People I’d love to Meet

1. Writer friends:

  • My CP extraordinaire Jaime: someone I’m so happy and grateful to call a friend, way beyond our writing and reading  experience
  • my wonderful and lovely beta readers: Jessica, Sara, Kip and Heather– I am so THANKFUL for them and their kindness!
  • Katy: our hubbies could totally hit it off too I think – and we could talk about YA contemporary, Disney movies, The Walking Dead…while playing scrabble or having a drink 😛
  • Christa: we need to have a drink –or several – and discuss tears, Center Stage, life and just goof off
  • Jessica L.: we’d talk about our high school experience that sound really similar, Jennifer Echols, Paris, plus I’d get to meet her dog 😀
  • And so many others like…Alison, Rebecca(we’ve already met but it was way too short!), Tracey, Colin, Robin, Juliana, Meredith, Ghenet, Peggy

The list is way too long…and incomplete. Sorry! 😀

But as I was typing this – again incomplete – list, I couldn’t help but grin widely. I’m so happy for all the connections I’ve made!

Some French authors I’d love to chat with!

2. Voltaire: I want to discuss with him philosophy, the way he lived, his aspirations…What he would think about our time.

3. Albert Camus: There are several books of his I wish I could discuss, including the Letters to a German Friend.

4. Victor Hugo: Les Misérables, The Last Day of a Condemned Man, Notre Dame de Paris…I read some of his works before I could totally understand them. No, really, as a child, Notre Dame de Paris is a bit complicated…But as a teenager some of his work has made me think. So. Much.

5. Molière: His life, his relationships with other writers, his work…Can you imagine everything I could learn from him?

Because their stories are always told and retold

6. Charles Perrault and the Brother Grimms: I want to know all about how they gathered their stories, about some of the background…about their life…

One author I studied. A. Lot

7. Christa Wolf: She passed away recently. But I want to ask her ALL the questions. About her work. Her life. Her take on new historicism and the feminism theories. And then I’d send her my Master Thesis and ask her what she thought about it. (I wrote it on her interpretation of Medea)

And some of my favourite YA authors (This list would be WAY longer than 10 in its own right, but I kept it to 3…)

8. Stephanie Perkins: I’d love to discuss how to write the best kisses, and romantic tension. Plus she sounds very nice on Twitter!

9. Judy Blume: I’d love to have dinner with her. And thank her.  A wonderful author, and she sounds like a lovely and strong woman.

10. Melina Marchetta: To tell her how much her book JELLICOE ROAD is still on my mind. Months after reading it. And that she created in Jonah one of the best Love Interest. Ever.

Again, this list was TOUGH!!! 😀

After we’re done chatting about books and life, we could go for a walk 😀

So, tell me,  which Bookish people would you like to meet?
