5 Reasons to read Game Changer

If you’ve already read my new book, Game Changer, then Thank You! If you haven’t, I brainstormed five reasons to get your copy and read it immediately. Hold onto your britches, because I know you’re excited to read these. Here you go.

Reason #1 – You’ll lose weight!!!

scaleGame Changer is a good substitute for food that might make you fat. Oh my! I said the F word. Sorry. 2 F words, in fact. Food and fat. Oops. I said them again. Shame on me. But really, this book gives you the sense that you’re eating yummy food like sticky, sweet orange chicken or huckleberry ice cream without all the calories. Who can pass that up? Not me. Just ask the chocolate chip cookies that were on my counter this morning.

Reason #2 – You’ll laugh!!!

laughSorry. I keep screaming each number, but exclamation marks are so cute and fun to use. But you will laugh. A lot. Parker is a hoot. Everything that comes out of his mouth and that he does makes me giggle. He’s one of the MC (main characters), and I love the fun-loving football player.

Reason #3 – You’ll learn everything you wanted to know about football!!!

bal goalHopefully, you don’t want to learn much. But if you need to know that touchdowns are good, and players wear pads and things like that…this is your book! You can’t leave home without it.

Reason #4 – You’ll feel good!!!

goodSince Game Changer is a romance, it ends happily-ever-after. Did you know that EVERY romance has to end happy…or it’s not a romance? Go figure. So Tess of d’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy is NOT a romance, even though one part of it had a romantic element. It ends tragic, so no-go to the romance genre. Sorry, Mr. Hardy. Game Changer definitely ends happy though, and you might even laugh. (see #2)

Reason #5 – Because I told you so!!!

Because I said so!That’s the MOM in me coming out. Sorry. But like I tell my kids all the time, that’s a good enough reason. So I’m leaving it here as my final reason. That’s usually what happens with the kids too when I’m too tired to come up with more reasons.

There you go. Five awesome reasons to read Game Changer this week. Maybe even today! Don’t weight. Ooops. I mean don’t wait! But if you go with Reason #1, the don’t weight works too.

The Inventive Bride

InventiveBride_SM (1)Okay, I feel like I’ve blabbed a LOT about my book lately. Now it’s time to blab about someone else’s book. This new release by Maria Hoagland tickled my fancy and was a definite winner. No fixing up to do with this story. It’s just fine as it is. More than fine, really. Here’s the blurb:

Frankie understands the inner workings of clocks and pianos–but dating? Well, that’s a bit more complicated.

Looking to move on after his wife’s death, Dr. Logan Wells relocates his optometry practice to Wyoming, home of his favorite childhood memories. By doing so, he incurs the wrath of his former mother-in-law who threatens to sue for custody of his ten-year-old daughter, Harper. Despite the lawsuit hanging over him, Logan is determined to find joy for the two of them as they settle in the idyllic small town of Cobble Creek. Continue reading

Have a great weekend, and happy reading!



Perfectly You

Just finished this fun YA contemporary romance, and thought I’d give you a heads up about it. This author (Robin Daniels) is Kelly Oram’s sister, and this is her second book. I’m a fan of Kelly Oram, so thought I’d give her sibling a try. Here’s the blurb for Perfectly You:

Ivy Nixon is the student body Vice President at Franklin High School. Each year, the school holds a date auction to raise funds for the senior class graduation party, and this year, Ivy’s in charge. Planning the event is a huge task and Ivy is determined to prove she can get the job done right. Unfortunately, she’s still one participant short and her deadline is looming.

Andy Walker, her cute but socially reclusive art class table mate, is her last resort. He may not be popular, but he’s funny, talented, and full of surprises. With a makeover and some major social marketing, Ivy is sure he could fetch a decent price at the auction. Continue reading
