Blog Tour & Review: Quinn Loftis' "Dream of Me"

 

Dream of Me: Book 1 of The Dream Makers Series

by Quinn Loftis

Synopsis

Since the dawn of time, Brudair, otherwise known as the Sandman to the world, has faithfully lived out his purpose, faithfully performed his duties. He has never questioned his lot among the immortals, until now, until her. Sarah Serenity Tillman, a consummate beauty both inside and out, is a high school senior five months from her graduation. She has great plans, dreams of leaving the small town of her childhood behind her forever. But destiny has other plans, and it’s the Sandman’s job to make sure those plans are fulfilled.
The tall muscular Sandman, known as Dair to his friends, dressed in black, wrapped in shadows, is more than a myth. And he has a job to do. His very existence makes him a creature of the night, because dreams, (yes the legends got that part right), were indeed his specialty. But his purpose was more than just weaving dreams for sleeping children. No, his dreams were made to influence, made to ensure that certain special individuals, those individuals who would change the course of history, actually accepted their chosen destiny.
Little does Serenity know that she is Dair’s next assignment. And the dream that he weaves for her, if she follows its influence, will change the course of, not only her life, but possibly the whole of history as well. But she isn’t the only one being influenced. The beauty inside of her was weighing on the Sandman, lighting up the darkness that was his constant companion. Her light was warmth, it was life, and he didn’t understand how he had survived the previous millennia without it.
The Sandman was indeed greater than anything humans had ever imagined, and his purpose was vital to the course of history. So what happens when the weaver of dreams gets so distracted by a mere human that he ignores his own duties in the immortal realm? How can an immortal who was never meant to have a mate, join a young woman in her destiny without irrevocably changing the lives of millions and potentially altering history in a way the Creator never intended?



My Review:
 
This book was bloody Amazing and my absolute favorite book Q has written ( until her next book that is!!) Dream of Me is a new experience from Quinn and let me tell you lot, she did NOT disappoint! Move over wolves here comes the Sandman! Smart, sexy and nonstop excitement will keep you at the edge of your seat the whole book!  I literally could not put this book down!

(this is where this book gets really good!!) Serenity is ready to be done with high school and get on with life, but once Dair enters her dreams straight away she knows her life will change drastically.  Will She trust Dair and except the path she must follow the best thing that has ever happened to her Or will she deny her rightful place in the world & her heart forever........

Cover Reveal: Lila Felix's "Doves for Sale" (Follow up to Sparrows for Free)

COMING MARCH 20TH!!!



Blurb:
 
“Love isn’t crazy. Love isn’t a degree of insanity. Love is sanity at its purest. It forces your soul to make a rational choice—a choice to make another person’s happiness your priority, to allow them access to your heart and soul. Letting Ezra go was choosing to love him. Letting him go was the best way you knew how to choose his joy over your own. I can see it in both of you. This love isn’t one that will go down without a fight.”
 
Seven months is a long time to wait.
Ezra has three goals. There is no choice. He has to get better, for himself and for Aysa.
Except, his best friend Roman has moved in in his absence. He’s given Ezra’s girl a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold, and a fighting chance at winning her heart.
Aysa knows who her heart belongs to.
But loving Ezra is no easy task.
Ezra never promised simple, he only promised his heart.
Aysa has two paths in front of her, one carries peace and one carries a love that never ends.

She has thought up a million different ways to get away from them, but lacked the motivation and the sheer will.

But is her new motivation enough to get her out....

 
Anguish was the status quo, until she walked in.
Breaker James Collins is confined in a prison of his own making. Scarred doesn’t begin to define his hell since finding out his girlfriend had cheated, stolen, and lied two years ago. It led to a single event—one that would blacken his days and his nights from then on. Since then, he hasn’t left his house, crippled by fear of people and any social interaction.
Ashland talks too much and has the voice of a meth-laden prairie dog, or so she’s always been told. She’s been called annoying and irritating all of her life and gave up on having friends for a long time. College has given her a new lease on a social life and she’s embraced who she is. But now she’s waiting for the one guy who can take her breath away and put up with her antics.
A simple note pinned to a corkboard will lead Ash right to Breaker’s solitary world and she will learn that just because a guy doesn’t fit her ideal, doesn’t mean she won’t fall head over feet in love.
 
 
 
All she wanted was a friend---one that knew her and not her circumstances. She needed somewhere to call home. Hers was an open door for countless men looking for the services her mother offered them. She camouflaged herself against lockers and blackboards to avoid the stares and whispers at school.

And then she found Cal...and Fade.

Cal lives like Frankenstein, rising at night to work and just trying to make it until dawn. He avoids most relationships, afraid of the things he will be asked to do. He moonlights as Fade, a radio station DJ who spends hours counseling his peers on their troubles. It was all mundane until Jocelyn called the station.

Cal and Havok pursue a friendship.

Jocelyn and Fade pursue a relationship beyond the confines of the radio waves.

But when Havok disappears, Cal will find that Havok has been guarding a lifetime worth of secrets. And when Fade and Jocelyn’s all night phone conversations cease, he finds a link between them he never saw coming.

 
In the depths of the Louisiana swamps, clans of bear shifters roam freely. Hawke Turnclaw, the Alpha over all of his kind, is drowning in the legacy left to him by the Alpha before him, his own father. When he goes on a rescue mission to save a rogue Black bear from the clutches of a Grizzly clan, he finds more than just a Black bear, he finds his mate.

Echo has always been told she's an anomaly, a fluke. She's the only bear of her kind and that makes her a hindrance to her clan. She's tried to run away, but they keep her tethered through guilt and a shock collar around her neck.

And then someone shows up claiming he's her mate.
Now belonging to a new clan, will she ever be able to understand that she's so much more than just a burden


 
Forced Autonomy Phase 1 (& Phase 2)
 
The United States has collapsed. Those citizens who are left are in one of two classes. One: Citizens who have undergone forced lobotomies, as mandated by the United Nations. Two: Those who fight against their tyranny.
Petra Kingsley falls under both classes. She falls in line with the drones, pretending her procedure worked. She’s existed among their ranks, hiding in plain sight, being worked to the bone and starved almost to death.
Lawson is a bounty hunter of sorts. His target isn’t the guilty, it’s those who are lost in the folds of a broken society.
When he spots Petra working in the masses, he stops at nothing to help her escape.
But he has no idea who exactly he’s helping—and who will now be hunting them both?
 

Breaker James isn’t the boy who is imprisoned in his home anymore. He’s not the guy who is afraid to leave the house. He doesn’t need Ash twenty four hours a day anymore.
Hell, he might not need her anymore at all.
He’s a heart breaker, pure and simple.
Love is easy when you’re secluded from the world within four walls.
Ash now has to learn how to let Breaker love her—without being his crutch.


 
Number ten is plastered on his team jersey and on his ego. In his own mind, Crown Sterling is the
 shit. He dates the prettiest women, he dominates on the soccer field, he pours money out of his
pockets like it’s water. Until a debilitating knee injury puts him out of commission on and off the
 field. He’s sent to an isolated town in Louisiana to recoup, undergo physical therapy and heal. But
it’s when you’re down that you find out who your real friends are, and what they value in you, if anything at all.


All Lyra wants out of life is peace and quiet. She grew up with a regular, everyday family. When she


 turned sixteen, rummaging through her grandmother’s hope chest in the attic, she discovered a secret


 that would turn her simple, normal life into a ball of chaos that revolved around her. But while she


seems to face her fears head on in her career, she lives a life that’s secure and well hidden.



A new neighbor moved in next door and he’s decided that everyone needs to listen to his rap music,


 shattering Lyra’s quiet existence. Enraged, she stomps to the next townhouse over and who should


open the door but a man whose good looks and charming smile knock her breathless.


How good looking? Just ask him.



How charming? He’ll tell you that too.

The king must be dethroned.


And a small town girl who’s been through hell is just the one to do it.


In spite of her mother’s protests, Alma has decided to visit the Island of the Dolls on the day before El Dia de Los Muertos. She is bound and determined to go, sure that it is just an island that rumor has deemed haunted.
When she gets there, it is impossible to ignore the doll that seems to call to her.
But there are rules when you take a doll from the island.
Rules that can never be broken—unless you are willing to pay the price. 



Coming Soon!!!

About My Girl Lila: 
 
I am a stay at home mom from the South and wife to the most giving and hard working husband ever.  I love to cook and try out new recipes even if they don't always turn out like I want them to.  I refer to my kids lovingly as the Three Stooges as they are constantly coming up with new ways to reek havoc in the house.  Most recently that included putting a rubberband on the kitchen sink sprayer so it would douse me when I did the dishes.  I love to go to roller derby bouts and read in my spare time.  I write mostly at night when the house is silent and I can sneak cookies without having to share!  If you're into stalking, try under the Cypress trees in the swamps of Louisiana, but watch out for gators!!

Review Rachel Higginson's "The Five Stages of Falling in Love"

Author: Rachel Higginson
Title: The Five Stages of Falling in Love


Blurb:
 
Elizabeth Carlson is living in the pits of hell- also known as grief.

Her husband of eight years, the father of her four children and the love of her life, died from cancer. Grady's prognosis was grim, even from the start, but Liz never gave up hope he would survive. How could she, when he was everything to her?

Six months later, she is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life and get the kids to school on time. Both seem impossible. Everything seems impossible these days.

When Ben Tyler moves in next door, she is drowning in sorrow and pain, her children are acting out, and the house is falling apart. She has no time for curious new friends or unwanted help, but Ben gives her both. And he doesn't just want to help her with yard work or cleaning the gutters. Ben wants more from Liz. More than she's capable of ever giving again.

As Liz mourns her dead husband and works her way through the five stages of grief, she finds there's more of her heart to give than she thought possible. And as new love takes hold, she peels away the guilt and heartache, and discovers there's more to life than death.
 
 
 
Review:
 
I was completely blown away not only by this story but by the incredible strength of the main character Liz. She suffers the heartbreaking blow of loosing the love of her life to cancer. Not only does she have to pick up the shattered pieces of her broken life for herself but also for her children.  Liz needs to be strong for them and becomes a powerful example of being able to move on from a devastating tragedy. To be honest, I don't think I could do it.
 
Then, Ben Tyler *sigh* moves in next door.....He doesn't just want to help fix her life, but also her soul. Liz isn't ready to let go of the pain and doesn't think she could ever share her heart with anyone again. But the more Liz gets to know Ben, the more her heart accepts the possibility of loving again.  Will Liz be able to escape her self imposed prison of pain? Or will she open her heart to Ben and the healing power of his love?
 

My Thoughts:
 
 
This book had me gripped ( and crying) from the very first page. The love Liz and her husband share is pure and beautiful and when it's lost, it agony.  Liz falls into a pit of despair and can't find her way out of the darkness. Ben slowly but surly becomes the light and the warmth Liz so desperately craves. Rachel does and amazing job of developing Liz and Ben's relationship and it's neither too long nor does it drag out. You'll walk away from this book understanding the healing power of love and the inspiring truth of letting go of the pain.....

About my girl Rachel:

was born and raised in Nebraska, but spent my college years traveling the world. I fell in love with Eastern Europe, Paris, Indian Food and the beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka. But I came back home to marry my high school sweetheart and now I spend my days raising our growing family. In those few spare moments I have, I am either reading or writing Young Adult Fiction, because I am obsessed with it.
Five other things I'm obsessed with right now:
1. My Kuerig Coffee Machine. Genius.
2. 90's music. Oh man, the 90's speak right to my soul.
3. Chocolate smelling body wash. Who doesn't want to walk around smelling like a bakery?
4. Colored Chapstick. And if it's Dr. Pepper Flavored, that's kind of my nirvana.
And.
5. Spotify. It's like the mixed-tape of this generation and I have probably three hundred hours of music on there. Can't get enough

A vaccination gone oh so wrong and a huge portion of the world’s population was turned into Zombies. Reagan Willow is forced out of her home when her parents become casualties of the horrid Zombie Apocalypse. With the help of her best friend Haley, they’ve become somewhat of experts on surviving the dangers of a world thrust into chaos and decay.

Reagan and Haley are on a vague mission to find somewhere safe to live out the remainders of their terrifying life when they stumble upon the Parkers, a pack of brothers that seem to have the survival thing down in a much more efficient and successful way than Reagan could ever have imagined. They are also protecting their eight year old sister, Page, and will do anything to keep her safe.

The brothers decide that Reagan and Haley need help with being kept safe as well, and as a group they set off to find the Zombie-free utopia Reagan is dreaming of.

Zombies are a daily problem, constantly threatening the lives of their group, but they’re not the only peril on the journey ahead. Militia groups of power hungry men are also a constant concern. And settlements of paranoid, suspicious people turn out to be just as hazardous.

Danger looms over every inch of the way, but Reagan, Haley and the Parkers are determined to get to their goal and remain together. Soon the Parkers become more to Reagan than just traveling companions and more than friendship starts to develop between her and Hendrix, the second oldest brother.

But at the end of the world, nothing can be as simple as life and death. Now, Reagan is going to have to schedule falling in love between hunting and surviving. Hopefully she can last long enough to find out if true love can still exist when everything else has started to fall apart.

Raised and conditioned to be both warrior and leader, he now sits on a throne with his sister Eden, governing the Kingdom in peace. While his people enjoy the benefits of his struggle and loss, he is restless, bored and alone.
Avalon is summoned to fight to save his people once more as the Kingdom is threatened by a brand new evil. In addition to reigning in a kingship he doesn’t want, he is fighting against the very people he has fought so hard to protect. They are determined to throw away their newfound freedom and their newfound leaders.
In this war and in this kingship he feels alone. And for the first time he feels hollow. That is until Amelia Cartier shows up, invading his every thought and shaking up his carefully controlled world.


 
A life not her own—A future already decided.

Every facet of Ivy Pierce’s life is meticulously planned out and plotted. Cynical and jaded by sixteen, Ivy’s only hope is to escape the legacy she was born into.

She has a plan, a carefully thought out, feasible plan. She just has to play by the rules until everything falls into place. Unfortunately as predictable as her life can be, she never sees Ryder Sutton coming. He tumbles into her life unimpressed and untouched by her and the life she lives. He’s an enigma to her. A gorgeous, frustrating, sincere mystery and a complete phenomenon in the ugly world she lives in.

What blooms between them is a fiercely intense attraction that cannot be ignored. Even though they would both be better off without each other—Even if both their lives depend on staying apart.

 
In Ivy Pierce’s world, Greek mythology is reality. Sirens, like herself, use men for money, power and status; but she has the greatest gift of all. Stronger than any of the Siren’s before her, Ivy’s attraction alludes to a prophecy that could mean the rebirth of Greek gods and goddesses for our modern time.

The Fates believe she is the symbol of a new era. Her mother believes she is the key to ultimate power in their Greek circle. And Nix, her godfather and god of the sea, believes she belongs to him.

Ivy doesn’t want any part of her world or the people that demand so much of her. With the help of Ryder Sutton, her closest friend, she will fight against fate, against the expectations of her society and against the desires of a monster that will do anything to possess her.

And through it all she will deny her feelings for the one person she loves more than anything in order to protect him.

While her future crumbles around her, Ivy will go to extreme lengths to free herself from her glass prison—or drown trying.

Review and Release Day Blast: the AMAZING Lila Felix's "The Second Jam" (A Love and Skate Novel)







*This is Book One of the Love and Skate spin-off series.*

For months, Cyrus Black has been in hiding. After ruining
his cousin’s chances of college, he goes from job to job, from place to place,
making sure he doesn’t have to face them—or himself.
Beatriz Morales is set. She has a plan, a schedule, and a
dream. Life has thrown her a few curve balls, but nothing keeps a derby woman
down.
She’d never admit it, but she’s stretched too thin.
Something has to give.
Love doesn’t just choose a person to see our
strengths—sometimes love chooses the person we trust with our weaknesses.
The choice is hers. 
 

Review:

My Lila girl does it again!! Now I adore Cyrus (as I do ALL her make characters) in fact my closet is becoming quit full of my fictional book boy friends ( perhaps I should stop stealing them?) Lila has the ability to bring you into her character's lives and fall in love with them.
 
Cyrus is hiding, biding time from life until he finds away to deal with this pain. It's easier to push people away than let them in and risk the pain of rejection.
 
Beatriz is determined to keep on skating (lol get it?) and move on with her life.  She's determined to move on from her past and let nothing stand in her way. Doing so much and being so headstrong has its drawbacks. Beatriz has a lot on her plate and the walls are slowly closing in ( not that she'd ever admit it!)
 
Cyrus needs her to ground him and Beatriz needs him to help her smell the roses.  The only problem is can they ever admit their true feeling to each other, let alone themselves?
 
My Thoughts:

As always, Lila hits her mark with sassy, lovable and memorable characters. You can't help but fall in love with this story and learn the healing power of love.  This story ( as all of Lila's stories) will stay with you for a long time to come.
 
5 out of 5 tea cups!

 I am a stay at home mom from the South and wife to the most giving and hard working husband ever.  I love to cook and try out new recipes even if they don't always turn out like I want them to.  I refer to my kids lovingly as the Three Stooges as they are constantly coming up with new ways to reek havoc in the house.  Most recently that included putting a rubberband on the kitchen sink sprayer so it would douse me when I did the dishes.  I love to go to roller derby bouts and read in my spare time.  I write mostly at night when the house is silent and I can sneak cookies without having to share!  If you're into stalking, try under the Cypress trees in the swamps of Louisiana, but watch out for gators!!
