Going to Hollywood was supposed to be something that would change Clara Mackenzie’s life forever.

Her younger sister, single mother Arabella, never imagined that going to California with her sister would have such a huge impact on her life. Now, she needs to try to overcome her past and try to trust again or be doomed to be single forever.

Arabella Mackenzie and her son Liam have never wanted or needed anyone other than their family. When Arabella meets Jeremy Fowlis she begins to have feelings for a man for the first time since before her son was born. Shy, Clara begins to fall for an actor of her own when she meets dashing Jake.

Jeremy is not use to women who do not want to date him because he is an in-demand actor let alone a woman who does not even recognize him. He finds he wants to know more about her but is not sure if he can handle the fact that she is a single mother and has a past that seems to be shrouded in mystery.

Can Arabella and Jeremy both overcome their doubts, fears and past in order to find love?

About The Book:
 
Title: THE
ARTISANS
Author: Julie
Reece
Pub. Date:
May 12, 2015
Publisher: Month9Books
Pages: 300

They say death can be beautiful. But after the death of her mother, seventeen-year-old Raven Weathersby gives up her dream of becoming a fashion designer, barely surviving life in the South Carolina lowlands.



To make ends meet, Raven works after school as a seamstress creating stunning works of fashion that often rival the great names of the day.



Instead of making things easier on the high school senior, her stepdad’s drinking leads to a run in with the highly reclusive heir to the Maddox family fortune, Gideon Maddox.



But Raven’s stepdad’s drying out and in no condition to attend the meeting with Maddox. So Raven volunteers to take his place and offers to repay the debt in order to keep the only father she’s ever known out of jail, or worse.



Gideon Maddox agrees, outlining an outrageous demand: Raven must live in his home for a year while she designs for Maddox Industries’ clothing line, signing over her creative rights.



Her handsome young captor is arrogant and infuriating to the nth degree, and Raven can’t imagine working for him, let alone sharing the same space for more than five minutes.



But nothing is ever as it seems. Is Gideon Maddox the monster the world believes him to be? And can he stand to let the young seamstress see him as he really is?

“The first thing I thought when I finished this book was ‘dang, I would love to see this as a movie’. The Artisans has such an awesome and haunting concept to it plus I just adore all of the characters.”~Jena Blogger @ Shortie Says

“The Artisans was a unique modern day retelling of Beauty and the Beast filled with mystery, romance and wonderful characters. From the first page I was completely lost in the wonderful setting that Reece created.”~Bridget Blogger @ Dark Faerie Tales


 

my review

My first thoughts when I started reading The Artisans was Intriguing right from the start. Raven Weathersby has a gift for fashion designing and she really wants to be one. She lives with her step-dad, who can’t seem to take care of himself, let alone her, she misses her mom who died after an illness. After her Step-Dad gets into trouble with Gideon Maddox her life changes.

She ends up making a deal with Gideon Maddox, she will live in his Gothic mansion and design a clothing line for him.

She moves in to the Gothic mansion, reminds me of a Gothic, Mystical tale. The place is scary and so is he, Gideon but she needs to do this for her step Dad.

This is such an intense type of fairy tale and I loved it. The story can be scary and intense but romance in a different sort of way. I love the Gothic Steam-punk style that Raven has, love how dedicated she is to her Step-Dad and her friends. The passion shows through in the writing of this story.

There is so much to this story and this story is so well written and doesn’t leave anything out. This is the type of story you want to read it all at one sitting, it took me 2 days to read this book. I also loved that it is a clean story, a few maybe one or two swear words and no sex. Just an awesome fairy tale in a Gothic steam punk way.  I definitely can see this being a movie.

I am giving this 5 stars.

I received this book for an honest review from the publisher.

About Julie:

 
Born in Ohio, I lived next to my grandfather’s horse farm until the fourth
grade. Summers were about riding, fishing and make-believe, while winter
brought sledding and ice-skating on frozen ponds. Most of life was magical, but
not all.


I struggled with multiple learning disabilities, did not excel in school.
I spent much of my time looking out windows and daydreaming. In the fourth
grade (with the help of one very nice teacher) I fought dyslexia for my right
to read, like a prince fights a dragon in order to free the princess locked in
a tower, and I won.


Afterwards, I read like a fiend. I invented stories where I could be the
princess… or a gifted heroine from another world who kicked bad guy butt to win
the heart of a charismatic hero. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? Later,
I moved to Florida where I continued to fantasize about superpowers and
monsters, fabricating stories (my mother called it lying) and sharing them with
my friends.


Then I thought I’d write one down…


Hooked, I’ve been writing ever since. I write historical, contemporary,
urban fantasy, adventure, and young adult romances. 


I love strong heroines,
sweeping tales of mystery and epic adventure… which must include a really hot
guy. My writing is proof you can work hard to overcome any obstacle. Don’t give
up. I say, if you write, write on!

Book Release: Girl of Mine by Taylor Dean #Giveaway

Taylor Dean’s newest book is now available!

GIRLOFMINE


 

The book trailer:

 

The song that inspired me while writing GIRL OF MINE:
(Watch until the end. There’s a surprise!)

A interesting tidbit about GIRL OF MINE:
My dad always worried about the cost of the electricity bill. If he walked past my bedroom and noticed that my light had been left on, he would turn it off and holler,
“That’s okay, Taylor, I got your light.”
It became a bit of a joke in our household. My siblings and I loved to try and catch my dad leaving on a light, just so we could say,
“That’s okay, Dad, I got your light.”
Now that I’m an adult with my own family, the term takes on new meaning.
The message behind it has worked its way into my new novel, Girl of Mine.
My father brought me into this world, he cared for me, and he taught me well. He gave me my “light,” my life.
He nourished my “light” and helped me become the person I am today.
So, Dad, thanks for getting my light.
I’ll always be grateful.

Taylor Dean lives in Texas and is the mother of four grown children. Upon finding herself with an empty nest, she began to write the stories that were always wandering around in her head, quickly finding she had a passion for writing, specifically romance. Whether it’s paranormal, contemporary, or suspense–you’ll find all sub-genres of clean romance in her line-up.

Book Review: Finally his Bride by Maisey Yates (Montana Born Bride #4)

25468297

Title: Finally His Bride (Montana Born Brides #4)

Author: Maisey Yates

Publisher: Tule Publishing

Series: Montana Born Brides

Genre: Romance

Release date: May 24, 2015

Website: Maisey Yates

Synopsis:

Wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta…

 

As the whole town goes crazy over the celebrity wedding event of the century, Melanie Richards decides she’s tired of blending in. It’s time go after what she wants. Her to do list:

Get a sexy dress

A little liquid courage

Lose that pesky virginity

 

Luke Shuller can’t believe his eyes when he walks into Grey’s and sees his best friend trying to pick up some drunk cowboy. Melanie wants to start hooking up? She can practice on him. At least he’ll keep her safe. And as a bonus, their pretend relationship will help him deal with a family crisis.

 

But when pretend gets real, Melanie can’t tell where the charade ends and reality begins. When the dust settles, will she get thrown back into the friend zone, or will she finally get the man of her dreams?

my review

This is the fourth in the series.  I would recommend reading the book Bride by Mistake first as this seems to go along with it.

This story is about Luke, Kaitlin’s brother. Happens to be staying in town dealing with his sister, not that Kaitlin wants help. But this story is more about Luke and Melanie, they have been best friends for a long time. When Luke sees Melanie at the bar trying to hook up with just any cowboy, he takes it in his own hands, I mean takes her by his own hands and puts her over his shoulder and carries her out. Of course not to her liking.

Even though this is a short story, I think it told a lot. Maisy Yates did a great job of writing this short story and making it seem like more. I really enjoyed the story line and am ready to eat some Salted Carmel Icing with my cake.

I am giving this a 5 stars.
