MY REVIEW

Wild Pitch by Rebecca Shea

“We needed to grow up. We needed to live our dreams without sacrificing them for one another.”

Wild Pitch is a fun little short story from author Rebecca Shea. I loved getting to know Mateo and Mia. They were friends who were destined to become more, but life had other plans for them. It would be four years before these two would be reunited again. There is some hurt that needs to be dealt with, but the sparks between these two still burn hotter than ever….So while Mateo and Mia’s story might be super short, it still gives you the sweet and sexy you know and love from this author. I for one would love to see more of these two in the future.

Your Everything by K.L. Kreig

“My small fry is here. It’s dangerous, this feeling rippling through me. It’s a catastrophe, sure as a category five hurricane gathering force in the Atlantic, about to make landfall. Maverick. My Achilles heel.”

“I want to capture this. I want to freeze time. I want to hold her and never let go. I want it all in this moment and I want nothing, save her.”

Your everything is a super quick and fun little tease. If you’re unfamiliar with the Black Swan Affair from author K.L. Kreig, then you are in for quite a treat. Your Everything might be a short story, but I promise it packs a punch. We get to meet Maverick, Killian and Kael. We get to learn their history and are given a small taste of what’s yet to come. This story is sexy and the intrigue will have you begging for more.

*I was provided an ARC copy of these two short stories in exchange for an honest review*

Character Interview from Gettin’ Lucky in Kentucky by Tiffany Carby

Thank you so much for joining us today! Please introduce yourself!

Tell us who you are and what you do!

Hi! My name is Beatrix Schuler and my friends call me Trixie!

What do you do for a living?

I own the tavern in Spring City called “Irish Ayes”

How old are you?

Isn’t it rude to ask a lady her age?

Tell us about your story. What is it about and what role do you play?

Well, I’m the star, of course! I’ve gotten myself into a little money trouble, or rather a little money trouble has found me. And, let’s just say I have one heck of a bad luck day…

Can you tell us about one of your most distinguishable features?

Legs for days…

Do you have any birthmarks or tattoos?

I do not have any birthmarks, and no tattoos, yet.

What would I love the most about you?

I’m very friendly and easy to talk to. My tavern customers just love me.

What would I hate the most about you?

I’m a bit materialistic, dear. I’ll just go ahead and admit that.

What is your idea of a perfect day?

A nice quiet picnic with the ravishing Deakon Cavanaugh… sigh.

What’s the best part about being in love?

Being loved in return!

What is your greatest fear?

Can I say homelessness?

Hot weather or cold?

Kentucky weather is just fine for this girl. We have all seasons and I love them all.

Dogs or cats?

Well, seeing as how a dang cat finds its way into my story, I’ll go with the felines.

Who was your first love?

Too many years ago to remember… I thought at one time I loved my latest ex-boyfriend, but you’ll see how that turned out. My last love, however, is mighty fine.

How do you take your eggs in the morning?

I generally leave them in the refrigerator, and stick with my fancy tea from The Wishing Well—Spring City’s coffee shop.

Someone is secretly in love with you. Who is it and how do you feel about that?

It better be Deakon, or we have a whole other mess on our hands…

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I always aspired to be doing what I’m doing, just making less mistakes.

If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?

Deakon.

What is the one food you can’t live without?

My fancy teas.

If they turned the book into a movie, who would be cast to play you?

My friends always say I resemble Sandra Bullock.
