You Took a Break... Now What?

A break really does do a mind and body well. So I highly recommend breaks to fellow bloggers. I’ll be taking another one for Christmas that’s for sure. But this was my first longtime break since I started the blog and I’m asking myself:

I’m back to blogging… Now what?

Well for starters there have been a few changes with the way the blog looks and there will be some more changes in the future. My review policy was tweaked a bit to reflect certain changes/trends that are happening. Oh, and the way I structure reviews is a bit different but I’m not sure that’s going to stay since it would require extra work graphic wise. I like the idea of a “Review Card” at the beginning of each review but since each “Card” would be personalized, I would have to make them in advance and so far I haven’t been able to get ahead very much. So that’s strictly on the “Trial Basis” list. I’ve updated the “About Me” section and am working on organizing the “Helpful Links for Bloggers and Authors” page among other things.

I am limiting my book review posts to about 3 or 4 to make room for memes and other types of posts since I felt things were getting a bit monotonous around here. I hope you like some of the things I’ve got planned but more importantly, that I can keep up with it!!

Actually, the real reason for this post is because I wanted to give away an Amazon gift card. I didn’t want to draw in total strangers but rather, give the handful of great visitors I have a chance to win something as a thank you. So you see, that’s why I rambled on for a bit and didn’t include the word “Giveaway” anywhere on the title. So good luck to you guys and thanks for sticking around!

A Brief Interruption

Hiatus: /hīˈādəs/ noun: a pause or gap in a sequence, series, or process.

I am putting the blog on a brief, semi-break. I want to focus on bringing some new stuff here, and changing things up a little. I need to find my reviewer’s voice which seems to have gotten lost somewhere between my first opinion post and when I had to change the blog’s name. So that has to be found soon. I also need a break. I’ve been doing this non-stop for three, no four years and haven’t had a chance to blog ahead like I wanted to. It’s been chaotic and with losing Cooper recently, I’ve not had the energy to be a daughter to my mom or a good blogger.

Review: Relentless by Skye Jordan

How about a steamy romance with a sexy stuntman cowboy for a Monday morning? Meet Troy Jacobs!

Format: .mobi (provided by author in exchange for an honest review)
Publisher: Cygnet Books
Release Date: June 22, 2015

Bad boy Troy Jacobs is all about taking risks. As a stunt double for Hollywood’s A-listers, there’s no fall he won’t attempt. With one exception—women. Troy fell hard once, and it nearly broke him. Since then, he’s vowed never to trust like that again and he’s got everything under control. Until the woman who shattered his heart years before shows up on his movie-set.

Country music star Giselle “Ellie” Diamond learned long ago that sometimes love isn’t enough. When love got in the way of her goals, she made the tough choice to let go of happily ever after and chased the glitz and glamor of the stage. It may not be all she expected, but now it’s all she has. And with a worldwide tour on the line, Ellie needs one last gig to rocket her toward stardom: a high-profile roll in a blockbuster film.

Passion sparks, and old feelings return. But while Troy and Ellie grow closer their problems from the past simmer in the background. And this time around, there's more tearing them apart than just one star-studded career.

Stuntman Troy Jacobs is used to taking risks, it’s his job and he gets paid well for it. In his personal life however, Troy plays it safe with meaningless flings. It’s a lesson he learned the hard way after falling hard and fast for a woman who didn’t just break his heart, she smashed it into a million pieces. Troy almost has himself convinced that he’s over it, over her until that same woman walks onto the movie he’s working on, and back into his life sending his mind back into the past.

In order for her music career to really take off, country singer Giselle “Ellie” Diamond needs her high profile role in an upcoming blockbuster film to be a success. Even knowing she hurt Troy, Ellie is willing to at least be civil with him for old times’ sake. But old hurts and stronger feelings keep Troy and Ellie from moving on. The time they spend together on set only makes them grow closer but just when they’re on the verge of rekindling their romance, they once again find themselves with the same problems that tore them apart years before.

Favorite Character Friday: Who Doesn't Love an Accent?!

Favorite Character Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Adria's Romance Reviews that gives readers a chance to celebrate their favorite characters!

Why a weekly meme? Because really, with millions of books out there and more coming out every week, characters are like potato chips, you can't have just one.

How it works: Every week you pick one of your favorite characters and tell everyone who it is, what book they're from and WHY they're one of your favorite characters. Be sure to include the blurb and book cover as well! Share the love and maybe someone will read that same book and see why that character is one of your favorites! Unlike the Book Boyfriend meme (which was a great meme), your Favorite Character Fridays choice can be male or female!
