Exception by Mariah Dietz

Blurb:

My life is like a coin.
There are two sides.

On one side, I am Leela Walsh: daughter, sister, employee at three minimum-wage jobs.
I cook. Do laundry. Contribute to the debt my family is sinking in.

On the second side, I am Leela Walsh: Straight-A student, top graduate of my class, med student.
No one knows of my brother’s sordid past. My sister’s poor decisions. Or that I’m the first in my family to graduate high school.

The balance between these two sides is nearly impossible to maintain. And it only becomes more difficult when I meet Wes McCleary.

He’s never had a job. Never wanted for anything.
And now, he wants me. 


There are a thousand reasons we shouldn’t be together, and just one that keeps bringing us together. 

Will that one reason be enough? 

 

Christie’s Review

4 STARS

A Thousand Reasons is a sweet, slow burn romance!

Wes and Leela come from entirely different worlds. He comes from wealth but absent parents, and she lives right at, if not sometimes, below the poverty level. However, for the most part her parents are supportive of her and her goal of becoming an ER doctor.

Wes is one of the good guys. He doesn’t make judgments about people, and he really wants to get to know Leela. Ironically, Leela appears to judge people based on their socioeconomic status but not really in a negative way. It stems from her childhood and the struggles she faced. Thankfully, Wes wears her down little by little, and she makes room in her heart for him.

I really admired both characters, and I really liked how Dietz portrayed them. Leela is an amazing character. She has sacrificed so much, she struggles with maintaining balance in her life. She works several jobs to support her family, and she also maintains a straight A average in med school. Wes brings her some balance.

As I wrote earlier, this is a slow burn romance, but it had to be. These are individuals from two very different worlds. Dietz clearly illustrates that. It really struck me and really made me think about how very lucky I was and am. She very realistically shows what leaving at the poverty level looks like. Leela only used mustard because ketchup was too expensive. She had to call the electric company to see if her family could pay installments so their electricity wasn’t cut off, and both her parents worked. Those things made me respect Leela even more. She is one tough cookie. She never gave up no matter what obstacles she faced.

The only thing missing from this book is an epilogue of sorts. Wes and Leela are such great characters, and I would like to know where life took them.

This is my first read from Mariah Dietz, and I can’t wait to read more from her. I know that some of her characters in this book appear in earlier books, so I’m excited to get to know their stories as well.

Meet The Author:

Fabiola also loves expressing herself through art and spending time in nature. In her spare time, she loves to cuddle with a good book and a glass of wine.

Excerpt 


“I need to start by saying that I don’t need you to free me from guilt. I don’t need some kind of permission to move on.” My head turns to the left to look at him. “The guilt I live with is put on myself for being an idiot. No apology is enough, Kenzie.” He shakes his head, keeping his gaze in front of him as well. He’s in his own world as he speaks to me.  
“I live with the self-hatred day in and day out, just trying to survive. I write songs about you, about us, trying to preserve what we had. As if doing so would freeze time and I’d wake up one morning to your tapping on my bedroom window. Remember when you used to do that?” He shakes his head to clear the memory. I remember it as if it were this morning I did it. I’ve always been a morning person, so I’d go to his house and wake him up by tapping his window. Then, I’d spend hours helping him around the farm. 
Hunter’s chest rises as he clears his throat. “We had so much going for us. I loved you so damn much. I still do, and whether we ever get a second chance or not, I’ll never stop. It’s impossible to.” His eyes seek mine and on cue I turn my head to meet him. I take a sharp inhale as I see the red rim around his eyes. 
“I hope you understand that. I’ll never stop. It’s you or no one. I fucked up. I’m not perfect, even if you thought I was. I’ve been going crazy not knowing where you are. I tried finding you everywhere, but no one knew or wouldn’t spill your location. If you think I’ve moved on, you’re wrong. Because this,” he grips his chest, “left with you.” 
“You broke my heart… in a way I never expected.”
“Trust me, I broke my own as well.” 
I swallow back the tears that want to escape. I just need to wait to cry when I’m locked in my apartment. 
“Maybe we were always meant to follow this destiny. We’re different people. Realistically, how many young people stay with the same person, especially through so many changes. Maybe we were never meant to last.” I shrug, focusing again on the patches of grass. 
“You don’t mean that.” 
I nod silently. 
“Damn it, Mackenzie. Look at me. Look at me.” His body shakes next to mine. “We were always meant to beat the odds. You know it. We would talk about it for hours.”
“It’s different now. Maybe we saved ourselves from greater heartache.” I finally turn to look at him, water blurring my vision but I refuse to let the tears fall. Not yet. “It would’ve hurt more if we had started to live the life we planned and realized it was wrong.” 
“Bullshit. There’s no greater heartache than this and I know you feel it, too. You don’t believe this.” 
I suck in air and release it just a fast. Nodding, I stand. “I’m sorry, Hunter. I gotta get goin’.”

Craving Mr. Kinky (Mr. Wrong #4) by A.M. Madden & Joanne Schwehm Release Day Blitz

Craving Mr. Kinky by A.M. Madden and Joanne Schwehm
Publication Date: June 20th, 2018
Series: Mr. Wrong #4
Genre: Contemporary Romance

CMK_FrontCover_Lo_Res_Final

Here’s a tip: When you least expect it, expect it.

I’d been known to have my share of beautiful women. Usually, I met them in a bar, through a mutual acquaintance, or even when photographing them.

Imagine my surprise when a gorgeous blonde drove her car into mine on the way to a party.

No more than a minute after our run-in, a string of colorful words flew from her mouth in rapid fire.

Unexplainably, the angrier she became the harder I got. All sorts of scenarios played in my head of how I could get her to shut up. I was all for feisty women, but I preferred leaving that for the bedroom—not on the streets of New York.

When I learned she was a school teacher, that worsened my disposition. What man didn’t have a dirty teacher fantasy at one point in his life? I decided it was my turn to teach her a thing or two… or so I thought. Little did I know, Miss Prim-and-Proper would turn the tables on me.

She called me Mr. Kinky, and that was fine with me.

Lesson learned: Desire always trumps logic.

Heroin lied, and my son believed. It took him to a world where the last year didn’t happen, to a place where his father was still alive. What Beck didn’t understand was that it couldn’t bring his father back from the dead. It couldn’t take away his pain, not permanently.

I thought that too. But you’re wrong.

Step into our world, and see for yourself.
Watch my golden boy become a slave to this raging epidemic. Watch me try and save him.
