One Black Rose 

by Maddy Edwards 

Publication date: October 10th 2011

Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Go on a journey in this heart-stopping modern day fairytale.
Sixteen-year-old Autumn goes to stay with her friend Carley in Castleton, Maine, for the summer. All she’s expecting is a normal couple of months hanging out at the beach with friends. Nothing out of the ordinary is supposed to happen.
But as soon as she arrives she meets Holt Roth. Holt is unlike anyone she’s ever met before – and her reaction to him is even more unexpected.
Then she meets Holt’s friend, Samuel Cheshire. If her reaction to Holt was strong, her reaction to Samuel is shocking. The only problem is that he seems to hate her for no reason at all.
Autumn knows there’s something very strange going on, but no one will tell her anything. When she finally does learn the meaning behind what’s been happening – that Holt Roth and Samuel Cheshire are fairies and that she is destined to be a fairy too – her life will change in ways she cannot possibly imagine, and the choices she makes will have the power to destroy lives – including her own.

My review for Chemistry By C.L. Lynch

My review for



C.L. Lynch

4 out 5 stars!

Stella is upset when her parents want to across country and that means a whole new school. Stella doesn’t make friends easily and leaving her only two friends behind doesn’t sit well with her.

But when Stella walls into chemistry class everything changes.

She has to sit by a boy who stares at her non-stop. And to top it off the popular kids say he’s strange. 

When Stella confronts Howard for staring at her, he tries telling her he means no harm. Howard just really likes her and says she is so the most beautiful girl he has ever seen before.

Now Stella thinks it’s some kind of joke, a prank that maybe the popular kids are behind. But as Stella gets to know Howard, she realizes he is so much more than a strange boy.

She starts to fall for Howard despite trying not to. Then finds out his family’s secret, they all drink brains from a thermos to keep them from turning into full on zombies.

Stella has to then decide will she take a chance on this boy and his secret? Or run as far away from him and his family as possible? Will other undead people come out now?

I actually enjoyed this book, although not into zombie type things. This book doesn’t make you feel like it’s a horror movie or book. It’s a great read.

“I’m not moving to a whole new school! I’ll be eaten alive!”

Stella Blunt’s world is ending. Her parents have dragged her across the country, and she has to start over in a new school. Th is is a big problem, because she doesn’t make friends easily: she’s large, she’s loud, and she doesn’t suffer fools gladly.

The only person who likes her is the cute geek in her Chemistry class. He’s a great listener, he’s smart at science, and he loves her for her mind. Then again, she’s not sure whether that’s a good thing, considering that he also drinks brains from a thermos and walks with a lurch.

To complicate matters, undead hordes have started showing up at her door.

Can Stella take on a new school, an undead romance, and handle a chainsaw?

Described as “Like Twilight, but with zombies and feminism”, Chemistry is an irreverent romp with a surprising amount of heart from debut author C.L. Lynch, who thinks that fat girls and zombies deserve love too.

5 out of 5 stars!
Another great book by this author.

I read this book in one night as well.

I just can’t seem to get enough of these characters. I’m really looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

Now this book is told in two different point of views.

Lonna and Collin.

These two are really great. Both think they are not good enough for each other or a great future.

Collin son of the infamous Bourbon Butcher, has been in love with Lonna since grade school. Collin is quarter back of their high school football team. But that still doesn’t get him any friends because of who his father is. 

Collin actually doesn’t mind this, except he wishes Lonna would notice him.

But when Lonna’s best friend Charli starts hanging around his brother Luke. Collin feels his luck might change.

Lonna see’s Collin and does like him, only problem is her mother and boyfriend and who his father is.

Collin see’s Lonna as who she she really is, if only she would drop her idiot boyfriend and not listen to her mother.

Lonna starts to see Collin in a new light, more than just the boy who is in love with her, someone who see’s who she really is.

As her life starts going no where she starts to pull away from the life that everyone thinks they know if her. Spending more time with Collin Parker is just what she needs.

Lonna Stuart is proud to be the most beautiful girl most people have ever seen. But on the inside she’s dying. Her mother’s grating comments and her boyfriend’s obsessive control are suffocating her.
There’s only one person who sees the real Lonna.
Son of the infamous Bourbon Butcher, Collin toes an invisible line of perfection; he’s a football prodigy; a hard working employee; and, what Lonna’s boyfriend considers, a retard. A slight stutter keeps Collin back from making too many friends, but he observes better than anyone, and he sees things most people miss. He sees the pain in Lonna’s eyes and the sadness in her frown. When she nearly drowns, Collin’s the only one willing to sacrifice himself to save her.
Inspired by Collin’s overwhelming kindness and drawn to the sheer greatness of him, Lonna begins to pull away from her asphyxiating life. But unbeknownst to both of them, Collin’s father, busy planning an epic escape from prison.

5 out of 5 stars!!

This book is so awesome. I finished in one day and couldn’t get enough of these characters.
It’s told from two different point of views, Charli and Luke.

When Charli’s parents go away for 10 days, she can’t wait to go through her parents things with her best friend and find out who her real father is. However by doing this it opens old secrets that she was never meant to find out. Which includes brothers that she has been told to stay away from. 

Luke who is a bad boy and lives up to being rough never thought he would be friends with Charli a rich girl who doesn’t run in the same circles as him and his brothers.

But a chance encounter changes both of their lives forever. Will Luke realize he is good enough for Charli? Or will be destroy a starting friendship to prove he isn’t good enough for the likes of Charli?

My review for Being Brooke By Emma Hart

Being Brooke

4 out of 5 stars!

This book is very funny and the characters are great.

Brooke who is very sarcastic at times and great doesn’t realize how awesome she can truly be.  She’s in love with her best friend Cain and wishes he would drop his Barbie girlfriend. Brooke gets to vent about Cain and his girlfriend to her other best friend Carly who knows all to well how Brooke feels about Cain.

As the story goes along I kept saying omg Cain just come out and tell Brooke you like her. This is the type of book you read and have a good time laughing and shaking your head at some of the things Brooke goes through or does. From her dropping out of college twice and her love for pizza. 

After reading all life lessons and quick witty comments on this book I really can’t wait to read others in this series by this author.

Being Brooke is LIVE early on Amazon! Here are the links! It will be $.99 through Friday!

ONE CHRISTMAS WISH (Heart of the Rockies, #2.5) by Sara Richardson








There’s nothing like a Christmas wedding to warm a girl’s heart-or to distract everyone else from the fact that one particular bridesmaid intends to quickly skip town. Julia Noble’s accident was years ago, and she’s tired of being overprotected. She needs to be on her own. But before she flees Aspen, Colorado, Julia wants to make sure her brother has the perfect wedding and all her ducks are in a row. Yet duty soon turns to pleasure when three days before the big day Julia runs into the only man she ever dreamed of marrying.

Fresh out of the navy, Isaac Nash just wants to feel normal again. But starting his new life means winning back the girl who captured his heart years ago. Isaac didn’t know the truth behind the tragedy that changed Julia’s life forever, and he can’t stop blaming himself for not being there for her. After all this time, he knows that Julia is what he wants, this and every Christmas. Now Isaac just has to convince her that she’s earned a miracle, too . . .
