Bear With Me

Bear With Me

by Jessica Redland

Synopsis

Jemma has the job of her dreams as curator for the children’s section of a museum in London. She spends each day surrounded by the one thing she’s absolutely passionate about: teddy bears. When boyfriend, Scott, shows a genuine interest in her passion instead of laughing at her for “playing with teddies all day”, she knows he’s a keeper.

Returning home to the North Yorkshire seaside town of Whitsborough Bay to celebrate her birthday, Jemma thinks she’s heading for her happy-ever-after when Scott unexpectedly proposes. So, a few days later, why isn’t he retuning her calls or responding to her texts?

Julie has always been a wonderful single mother to Jemma and her little brother, Sean. As owner of specialist teddy bear shop, Bear With Me, and the creative genius behind the successful range of Ju-Sea Bears, she inspires Jemma with her ability to balance a demanding career with home life. So why is the shop now in disarray and why is Sean so upset?

Sam thought he had his future all worked out. With a promising neurology career, a home, and a devoted fiancée, life was looking good. But now he’s all alone in a strange city, far from everyone and everything he cares about, struggling to rebuild the tatters of his life. Did he do the right thing by running away? What does the future hold and is he strong enough to face it?

Sometimes love finds us when we least expect it. But sometimes love leaves us, just as unexpectedly. When you’ve loved and lost, can you bear to let love in again?

Bear With Me, as all will be revealed …



 

Christie’s Review

5+++++ STARS

An All-Time Favorite Read

A Top Read of 2018 & Women’s Fiction

Oh my goodness, Jessica Redland has captured my heart and soul with this emotional and beautiful novel!!!

Bear With Me is one of those very rare novels that I have to really think about long and hard before writing a review. Honestly, I have written several versions before settling on this one. I want to get everything right so that other readers will see how very special this book really is!!!!

The book is told from two POVs…Jemma and Sam. It seems as if it is fate has brought these two together after each has suffered devastating pain, although for very different reasons. However, this shared pain has brought them together as friends and maybe, just maybe something more.

I thought the way Redland developed this story from the beginning until the very end was brilliant, even the title was brilliant. Readers will understand that once they begin reading it. Both of their stories are told parallel to one another.

Jemma and Sam are characters that will stay in my mind and my heart for a long time. I can’t imagine the depth of pain each of them endured. However, I could also see the strength in each of them as well. I’m so glad that Redland developed their stories both independently to show readers how the two came into each other’s lives. It was a slow romance which was completely realistic, with some steps forward and some steps back. She also threw a twist in near the end that packed quite the emotional punch.

The author created a story that was emotional and was one that held me captive until I finished the very last word, and I’m still thinking about the storyline and the characters. It was also a book that hit very close to home for me. My beloved grandmother suffered from the same disease as Jemma’s mother. Thank you, Jessica Redland, for shedding more light on Parkinson’s, not only from the perspective of those suffering from it but also from those who are the caretakers.

I highly, highly recommend this read. I have been a fan of Redland’s for a while, but in my opinion, this is her best book by far. It is about loss and second chances…family, friends, and love! Bear With Me will make you cry, make you laugh, and finally bring a smile to your face, and a warm feeling in your heart!!!!

Author Bio 

Jessica - Author Photo

Jessica had never considered writing as a career until a former manager kept telling her that her business reports read more like stories and she should write a book. She loved writing but had no plot ideas. Then something happened to her that prompted the premise for her debut novel, Searching for Steven. She put fingers to keyboard and soon realised she had a trilogy and a novella!

She lives on the stunning North Yorkshire Coast – the inspiration for the settings in her books – with her husband, daughter, cat, Sprocker Spaniel, and an ever-growing collection of collectible teddy bears. Although if the dog has her way, the collection will be reduced to a pile of stuffing and chewed limbs!

Jessica tries to balance her time – usually unsuccessfully – between being an HR tutor and writing.

When Forever Changes by Siobhan Davis Release Blitz

30 Sep

WFC_RELEASE BLITZ.jpg

When Forever Changes, an all-new emotional, angsty, new adult romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is LIVE!

WhenForeverChanges_ecover.jpg

Gabby



Looking back, I should have seen the signs. Perhaps I did, but I subconsciously chose to ignore them.

From the time I was ten, when I first met Dylan, I knew he was my forever guy. Back then, I couldn’t put words to what I was feeling, but, as the years progressed, I came to recognize it for what it was—soul-deep love. The kind only very few people ever get to experience. Dylan was more than just my best friend, my childhood sweetheart, my lover.

He was my soulmate.

We were carved from the same whole—destined to be together forever.

Until he changed.

And I believed I was no longer good enough.

Until he shattered me so completely, it felt like I ceased to exist.

And I’d never experienced such heart-crushing pain.

Until he leveled me a second time, and I truly wanted to die.

But I had to stay strong because I wasn’t alone in this cruel twist of fate.

I look to the sky, pleading with the stars, begging someone to tell me what I should do because I don’t know how to deal with this. I don’t know how to cope when my forever has changed, and I can’t help wondering if I had seen the signs earlier, if I’d pushed him, would it have been enough to save us?


Or had fate already decided to alter our forever?

Excerpt
“Why are you being like this?” I ask softly.
 His voice is even
more flat when he says, “Not sure what you mean. This is me.”
“You’re acting so detached and strange. This isn’t like
you.”
“Well, you don’t know me anymore.”
That response brings fury and betrayal roaring to the
surface again. “And whose fault is that, Zeke?” I grab a nearby mug with the
intention of throwing it at his head. He’s giving me worse mood swings than
Aunt Flo.
 “We both know the
answer. Let’s not play guessing games.”
“You’re ridiculous. I don’t understand you at all,” I say.
“A lot happens in five years. You’re not the only one who’s
changed.” He gestures around the store.
“What is that supposed to mean? Are you upset about my
career choice?”
“Nah, that isn’t it.”
“What then? Let’s stop dancing around. You came here for a
reason,” I point out.
A flush races up his neck, painting the stubbled skin an
angry red. “All of this is proof you never needed me. Not like I fucking depend
on you.”

This time he’s playing for keeps…

Determined athlete Jake Carruthers is anxious to start over after a failed marriage to his college sweetheart. As the captain of the Alaska Blizzard, he’s finally on the road to a drama-free life and focusing on his first love, hockey. The last thing he was expecting is for the beautiful blonde from his past to show up in Anchorage, distracting him with memories of what they shared.

Headstrong Harvard graduate, Whitney Sommers walked away from her tumultuous life in Texas and never looked back. A plethora of professional opportunities lay before her, but her secret past holds her back. Running into the only man who’s ever made her want more from life wasn’t part of her plan, but she can’t forget the way it feels to be lost in his arms.

As Jake struggles to win Whitney’s trust, she teeters on the edge between what has been and what could be. But she’s forgetting one thing: he only plays to win.

About the Author:
Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.
Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.
Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

WHISKEY SOUR by Nazarea Andrews

A Standalone Contemporary Romance

(River Street Bar series, #4)

Blurb:

Calvin Landers is a mess.
He has a great job and a steady string of men and women in his bed, and has been in love with the same couple for so long he can’t remember a time when he wasn’t. Coming off fresh heartbreak, he’s ready to move on, to give up on romance and sex altogether and moves in with his best friend, Davis, while he looks for something more permanent and tries to figure out what the hell he’s doing with his life.
Ava Liu isn’t looking for anything more than something to distract her from the book she’s supposed to be translating. Something to distract her from why the hell she’s in River City in the first place. But the boys who share a fence are more than a little distracting and pushy, when they realize just how much Ava needs someone–and how much they all need each other.
Sometimes life happens just when you stop looking.

EXCERPT:

There’s a man there, in faded jeans and a green henley and a big grin—although, that grin kind of stutters, dips into confused and speculative as he stares at me.

“Uh. This is—I’m looking for 9800 Blackmore Lane?”

I point to the side, where the old Miller house is sitting in all its innocent glory. “I’m 8900. Go bang on the right door.”

He gives me an apologetic smile and wags a coffee at me.

It’s a coffee from Cool Beans Cafe, something I only get when I can talk Kip into grabbing it before she drops in. And that’s rare enough—she has opinions about how much coffee I drink.

“Peace offering?” he says, with a hopeful little smile that shouldn’t be as charming as it is.

I huff and snatch it from him, inhaling the scent. I give a tiny noise, soft and satisfied. Then I blink, because a stranger is still standing on my porch staring at me, bemused.

“Sorry for snapping,” I mumble.

He laughs. “Sorry for being the unobservant dick who woke you up so early.” I smile at that, pleased, and he extends a hand. “Davis Emmerson. I’m moving into 9800.”

“And you don’t know what it looks like?” I say skeptically.

He laughs and blushes, rubbing the back of his neck in the most adorable display of self-conscious embarrassment I’ve ever seen. “Yeah, no. My best friend is moving in first—he came yesterday. He picked the place. I’m just here for the excellent wifi.”

Oh. Interesting.

“Well, I’m sorry, ma’am. I’ll let you get back to your morning.”

“Ava,” I offer shyly and he glances back at me. “My name. It’s Ava.”

A smile slips over his face and he nods. “You should come by tomorrow. I’m making cookies.”

Surprise flickers in his gaze, but he grins as he backs down the stairs. “I will. See you soon, Miss Ava.”

I breathe through the flush on my skin and shut the door as he hits the sidewalk. Then I sit in my favorite chair and slowly savor my coffee, letting my mind drift aimlessly while I do.

It’s only when the coffee is gone and I’ve dressed and done my makeup for the day—it’s only then that I panic.

I have no fucking clue how to make cookies.

About EXQUISITE TASTE

He was a dare she couldn’t walk away from.

She was a game he was determined to win.

Jensen Stone was thriving in her first year of college. So thirsty for success she could already taste the achievements on her lips. Nothing would get in the way of her dreams, not even the social pressures of pledging. Until one night, she finds herself in the lion’s den of sorority row, accepting a dare she knew she couldn’t complete.

Damien Cross was bored. He no longer craved the dominance and control he had swirling in the palms of his powerful hands. He was determined to walk away from the empire he’d spent the last ten years building. What he didn’t factor in was the unexpected distraction. He might be angry at her inconvenient timing, but the urge to break the new toy dangling in front of him was all consuming. It wouldn’t hurt to play one last time.

One night. His rules.

Will she obey his demands to fulfill a dare?

Or will she realize his dark tastes are anything but exquisite?
