Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Owning a dog can bring a lot of joy and happiness, but it can also and is hard work at times. I know this myself as I share my home with my two beautiful girls, Honey and Lily! Gina Harley has come up with a great guide to picking your dog, care throughout their life, and when it comes that heartbreaking time of telling your best friend good-bye.

She includes some great tips, and she doesn’t pretend to be an expert. Sure, there will be things in here that not everyone agrees with, but I think that is true with any book of the same nature. The author is from Australia, so there are some terms that are different here in the US, but I knew what she meant.

I really thought the book was great for any dog owner. I want to highlight the two sections that grabbed me, and it’s on the more emotional level. Almost every guidebook on owning dogs always highlight the important responsibility of having a dog. She spoke to me my emotions. She really asked some important questions of why you want to add a dog to your family. You don’t get one because you are bored. In addition, she asks you to really think about the financial responsibility you are taking on…treats, food, medical care, toys, etc. These are all important questions everyone should ask before adding a dog to your household.

The second section is the part about saying your final good-bye to our best friend. Some guide books don’t include this. In my opinion, this is one of the most important things to consider when owning a dog. You never really think about this when you are bringing them home, but it’s something we all will face. It’s hard and it’s painful. I have tears in my eyes as I write this because I have had to say that painful good-bye to two most wonderful boys I have been blessed to share my life with, Hunter and Hershey. She is very honest about the pain we all experience. You are losing a member of your family.  She even goes so far to offer advice on when it’s time to bring another one home.

This is a great guide to owning a dog, and she offers a free dog bundle pack at the end of the book. It’s a great practical guide that also speaks to your heart!

Title: UnScrew Me

Author: Hayley Faiman

Genre: Motorcycle Romance

Release Day: Nov 5th

About UnScrew Me:

Thirty-two and single, Presley wants to start over. She’s only going through the motions–just breathing, not living. It isn’t the life she’s always imagined.

She should be married, with a little house and a few children, maybe even a Labrador to greet her after a long day of teaching third graders.

Treasurer for the Savage Beast MC, Silver lived life hard. At forty-five he’s seen and done it all–twice.

A single father in need of someone who could love him, and his boy. He’s given up on ever finding a woman who fit him–fit them.

Two people breathing. Two people wanting to be loved. One an outlaw. One an innocent. Two people who could not be more opposite, yet when their worlds collide, so does their chemistry.

Pre-Order Your Copy:

Universal Link | Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Not wasting a second of my life. It’s a miracle I’ve lived this long. That means, I found a woman that I want to share my bed and my home with, a woman I could see making a bigger family with, then I’m putting the work into it. I’m putting this shit on fast forward. I am not fucking around, especially not after I almost lost you,” he explains.

Nodding, my fingers twitch. “The branding?”

He smiles slowly, but his eyes look almost sad. “A real brand, with a branding iron. It binds you to me. You’ll also have your own cut so that nobody can mistake who you belong to. The brand is just for my club though, for me,” he explains.

“You can’t mean it, with a branding iron?” I gasp.

He lowers his head, his lips brushing my own. “I mean it, Presley. This is my life, this is what needs to be done. I’ll put a ring on your finger, I”ll give you the wedding you want, but babe this is non-negotiable.”

About the Author:

I was born and raised in a small farming town in California. I met my husband when I was 16 and he was 19. We married four years later and have two little boys! We lived in Oregon for a few years while he served in the US Coast Guard.

Texas is now where we call home, where our boots rest, and where we’re raising our two little boys and a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.

Author: Katy Regnery
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 1, 2018

 

Blurb
From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a dark and twisted retelling of the beloved fairytale, Cinderella!

My name is Ashley Ellis…

I was thirteen years old when my mother – retired supermodel, Tig – married Mosier Răumann, who was twice her age and the head of the Răumann crime family.

When I turned eighteen, my mother mysteriously died. Only then did I discover the dark plans my stepfather had in store for me all along; the debauched “work” he expected me to do.

With the help of my godfather, Gus, I have escaped from Mosier’s clutches, but his twin sons and henchmen have been tasked with hunting me down. And they will stop at nothing to return my virgin body to their father

…dead or alive.

** Contemporary Romance. Due to profanity and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.**

Excerpt
All rights reserved. Used with permission.



Instead of going inside, I walk around the house, to the backyard, to see if I can help bring in any dirty dishes, but the picnic table is empty. All traces of our dinner party have already been cleaned up by the Ducharmes siblings.

 
I look up at the midnight sky, at the dozens and dozens of stars, and I wonder if Gus is right. What he says feels right, but I feel very young and very small as I stare up at the universe. It’s not wrong to give yourself over to loving if the chance arises.
 
“We get amazing night skies up here.”
 
I look over my shoulder and find Julian, tall, barefoot, and beautiful, walking toward me.
 
“Yes, you do,” I answer, giving him a shy and tentative smile before I turn my attention back upward.
 
My skin prickles with awareness. My lips tingle, remembering the insistent pressure of his. And elsewhere in my body, I clench hard, willing those deep-set tremors not to start up again right now. I want to believe what Gus has told me—that liking and wanting a man isn’t wrong—but it’s new to me, and I need a little time to reconcile my desire and conscience together.
 
“When I lived in DC, it was what I missed the most, besides Noelle. More than the cheese. More than the beer. More than the skiing.” He stops, standing beside me, staring up at the firmament. “I missed Vermont’s night skies. And the millions of stars.”
 
“I can see why,” I say. “When I lived in LA, I never saw stars.” I giggle. “I mean, I saw the people kind, but not the sky kind.”
 
“Who’s the most famous person you ever met?”
 
“Hmm. Maybe . . . Gigi Hadid . . . or Bella? Hmm . . . Or Cara Delevingne? Kate Moss mentored my m—Tig for a while, um, and she knew Gisele, of course. Also—”
 
“Wait a second! Gisele? Did you ever meet Tom Brady?” he asks, his voice eager.
 
“Let me guess.” I glance at his face. “Patriots fan?”
 
“The biggest.”
 
“Tig went to their wedding, but I never met him. Sorry,” I say, giggling as he lays a hand over his heart and pretends to cry. “Speaking of the rich and famous, Noelle tells me you met the vice president while you worked in Washington.”
 
“She did?” His teasing expression disappears quickly as he straightens, dropping his hand. “Uh, yeah. Long time ago.”
 
“Not so long,” I say. 
 
“Yeah, well . . . I guess it just feels like a while ago.” I wait for him to say more, hoping to learn why he left Washington so abruptly, but he stretches his arms over his head and yawns. “I’m tired. You must be exhausted.”
 
“At school I was on the dining hall rotation, which meant cooking for one hundred souls regularly. Tonight was a breeze.”
 
“Your soup was amazing.”

“Thank you.”

“The steak too.”

“Thank you again.”

“And the tart.”

“That was your sister. Let her know you thought so.”

“And the kiss.”

 
“Thank—” I’m grinning at him, but my eyes widen at his unexpected compliment, and I immediately look back up at the sky. It’s dark out so he can’t see my blush.
 
His chuckle is soft and low beside me, and maybe I’m wicked for not feeling more guilty, but I feel my smile grow as I trace Orion’s belt. I don’t dare look at him, but I feel him step closer to me, the warmth of his chest radiating against my back. If I moved slightly, one step even, his body would be flush against mine, and the shiver down my arms has nothing to do with the night chill. I want him to touch me, but I know he won’t.
 
As though he can read my mind, he whispers, close to my ear, “Not unless you ask.”
 
I close my eyes and say a prayer for strength and virtue, which, sadly, works, because the next thing I hear is his footsteps receding.
 
“Good night, sweet Ashley,” he says to my back, his voice a low rumble.
 
My eyes open slowly to the glittering heavens.
 
“Good night, sweet prince,” I whisper to Julian’s stars.

Author Bio
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract, and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Forty books later, Katy claims authorship of the multititled New York Times and USA Today bestselling Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other stand-alone novels and novellas, including the critically-acclaimed, 2018 RITA© nominated, USA Today bestselling contemporary romance, Unloved, a love story.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Todaybestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, became a New York Times e-book bestseller.

Katy’s books are available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Turkish.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
