Release Date: October 13, 2014

Genre: New Adult





✾ Synopsis ✾


Mackenzie...

With each dawn rose a new day, but nothing changed. Not really. My life was the same revolving circle. We barely lived. We moved. We barely got by in a new place. Until we moved again.
New school. New trailer park. Different day.
The first day of my senior year in high school, I was ready to give up. Ready to run far, far away and hope I would never be found. But I'm a smart girl. I knew it would never work. I had a plan. One I was so close to fulfilling. I could start over. Be a new person.
Live without the "poor girl" and "trailer trash" labels attached to my back.
I became guarded, living by my own rules.
Rule number one: don't worry about learning their names, I wouldn't be around long enough for them to learn mine.
But then, I met him. I tried to resist, tried to push away, make myself seem uninterested, but Hayes wouldn't let me. He saw something in me and chased me until I finally gave in. We became friends — best friends. And then, we became more. My guard fell and I opened my heart, only for him to crush it in his bare hands.


Hayes...

Sex. Booze. Football. In that order.
I'd never been the kind of guy who "did" relationships. They seemed pointless. Girls threw themselves at me, practically purred for me to seduce them.
Why would I give that up?
Why would I want more?
But there was something about Mackenzie. Something different from all those other girls. She was someone I was willing to risk everything for. I didn't care where she came from, or about her past. It didn't matter that she lived on "the wrong side of town" and I was the rich kid "sitting on a gold mine".
Even more, those other girls didn’t matter anymore. Because they weren't my Mac.

✿ My Review ✿





This is the first book written by J.D. Rivera that I've read and I loved it!

Mackenzie Blanchard and Hayes Morgan couldn't be more different: she is the poor girl, living in a trailer park with her unloving parents, that does her best to find a way out of there; he is the rich boy, with a great and loving family, Mr. Popular in school. But when their paths cross, their connection is instant.
Mackenzie and Hayes become friends and later, even though they try to fight their feelings, they become a couple.
But things at Mackenzie home become unbearable and when Hayes decides to ask his father for help, Mackenzie is sent away. When she tries to come back, a misunderstanding makes her doubt Hayes's love and she leaves.
One year later, their paths cross again. They still love each other, but Mackenzie is hiding something from Hayes and Hayes is afraid that something he has done will send Mackenzie running again.
Will they find their happy ending?

Chasing The Stars is a great book with a sweet and heart-warming story, full of emotion. The situations depicted keep the reader captivated and unable to stop reading.

Mackenzie had a rough childhood, always moving because of her alcoholic and abusive father and a mother who didn't do anything to stop him. She knows she has to work hard to be able to have a better life. Although young, she is very strong and fierce.
Hayes is your typical high school player. He is popular and every guy wants to be his friend and every girl wants to date. But he never dates, only has casual encounters. When he meets Mackenzie, everything changes. He wants more. After Mackenzie left, he becomes numb and only when he encounters her again he regains his happiness.

J.D. Rivera wrote an amazing book, very well written, with a compeling story and with great characters. Can't wait to read Chasing Each Other and Miranda and Brad's story!








✿ Excerpt ✿


I turned around to come face to face with green piercing eyes. My breath caught and I felt like I was going to pass out. No way was I standing in front of Hayes Morgan. I couldn't move, I couldn't breathe, I couldn't speak... I couldn't do anything but look into his beautiful eyes.

"Mac?" he finally managed, his voice cracking.

"Yeah," I whispered.

He reached his hand out like he was going to touch me, but then dropped it. "I can't believe it's you. I wasn't sure I'd ever see you again."

I pulled my eyes away from him and noticed the beautiful girl standing beside him with her arm wrapped around his forearm.

"It's really me. It was nice seeing you, but I have to go."

I marched to the door as fast as I could without looking back. I had to get out of there — away from Hayes and definitely away from his girlfriend. Before I could make it far, I heard him yelling, "Mackenzie! Mackenzie, wait!"

I didn't turn around as I quickened my pace. I couldn't talk to him. I didn't know what to say.

♡ Teaser Blitz ♡ The Girl I Was Before (Falling #3) by Ginger Scott‏ @TheGingerScott @wordsmithpublic #HoustonsGirl #TeaserTuesday









✿ Coming Soon! ✿


The Girl I Was Before
Falling #3
by
Ginger Scott‏

Release Date: June 23, 2015

Genre: NA Contemporary Romance





✾ Synopsis ✾


I'm the selfish one. I suppose that's the nicest thing people say about me. I've heard the other things, too. "Paige Owens is a pretty girl with nothing else to offer. She's just a good time at a party. She's stupid, heartless, cold and useless. All she cares about is getting a guy to look at her. Why would anyone want to be her friend?"

Some of those things are true. Others were true. They're all hurtful.

None of it matters.

I'm ready to make the hard choices. I'm ready to face the consequences. I'm ready to be the girl I was before, and I'm done being the one who lost her way.

I'm ready to become the girl Houston Orr sees when he looks at me.

Houston isn't a star athlete. He doesn't play in a band. He's never going to be president, and his life is so far away from simple and easy it isn't even funny. He wasn't part of my plan. But I'm starting to think plans are overrated, and maybe our stories are what we make them. And mine depends entirely on me, and the choices I make... starting now.

Houston is my fairytale. He's perfectly imperfect. He's poetry and life. He's truth and heartbreak, all rolled up in a tall body with dark hair, broad shoulders and green eyes that lull me into submission. He's nothing I ever thought I wanted, but the very thing I need. He's the only guy I've ever really loved, and he thinks I'm a princess. I fell into him, and now I'm holding on.

But sometimes life takes away our ability to choose. Sometimes…things aren't in your control. Sometimes, it hurts to be selfless. My only hope is that when it comes time to choose, I get it right.

Welcome to my once upon a time and wish for happily ever after.

"Hey," Kane murmured, "what's that face for?"

"I don't like how she looked at you," I replied lowly to him.

"What way did she look at me?" he asked.

I set my jaw. "Like she was frightened."

Kane sighed, "I get that a lot, darling. I don't blame her though — I do look scary."

Hearing him say that made me really mad.

"No. You. Don't," I hissed. "You look perfectly fuckin' fine, and fuck anyone who thinks differently."

Kane grabbed hold of my arm and brought us to a stop. He rounded on me and looked down at my face. "Babydoll."

I shook my head. "I'm fine. I... I just don't like people thinkin' you're somethin' to fear. You aren't. They don't know you like I do."

Kane smiled at me. "Have I ever told you how amazing you are?"

I flushed. "No, but it'd be nice to hear it often."

✿ Excerpt ✿


Renee walked beside me, her chin tucked into the collar of her jacket. "It'll get better, Aubrey. I promise. This is your second chance. Your time for something more."

I hoped she was right. i was desperate for that something better.

I can be so much more for you. I want to be everything you could ever want.

It had only been a matter of weeks since Maxx had said those words, his intense blue eyes staring into mine, and had given me his heart. Only weeks since he had made promises he hadn't been able to keep. It was such a short amount of time for my entire life to change.

But it had changed. And now all I could do was accept it and move on. If only it were that simple.

My eyes were drawn to the brick wall that ran along the edge of the green. The once vibrant colors of Maxx's street art had faded, but I could still the painting of a woman walking off a cliff. The word Compulsion was woven into her familiar blond hair. It was a small part of the complicated man who continued to own me. The tiny, intricate X's dotted through the picture seemed to scream at me. Taunting me with their presence.

Even when he was gone, Maxx was everywhere. His art. His love. His chaos.

I couldn't escape him And I was terrified that in the darkest recesses of my heart I still didn't want to.

Wrong

LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole

Cover Design: SM Piper

Release Date: June 2, 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Tor

My life was everything I wanted it to be. It was mapped out and planned. I wanted it all, the career, the right husband, the white picket fence and kids. Until he was thrust into my world, ripping me from it. My carefully planned life shattered, proving to be nothing more than a cheap illusion, and now I'm living in this twisted form of hell, where enemies and friends are one and the same. I thought I wanted perfection. Now I don't know what I want - perhaps not even my own freedom.

Jude

I define wrong. I thrive on the corrupted greed of others, on their trivial hope, and their false optimism. I am the bookie, and the bookie always wins. For those whose hopes far outweigh the depths of their pockets, well, let's just say paying with your life is not just a figure of speech.

I have always been in control, until suddenly I'm not any more. The day one of my collectors dragged her into my office as payment on a debt, I should have killed them both right there, but I didn't. Now she threatens my control, threatens everything I've built, and yet I still can’t kill her. Why can't I kill her?

By the time I'm done with her, she may pray for death.

Everything is not always as it seems.

Lust, blood, lies…Nothing this wrong should feel so right.

✤ Stevie J. Cole ✤


I love writing (obvious since I'm on here, right?) I don't have a specific genre - I just write whatever story manifests itself inside my brain.

Writing is like therapy. There is nothing else that I can lose myself in the way I can a story. It amazes me that words can take you away from reality and leave you in a dazed state once you've finished.

Aside from writing, I love sloths and mythology. I kind of have a thing for vampires, because let's face it, something about the fact that they fight the urge to bite your neck and drain the life from you is rather sexy. I have an irrational fear of the zombie apocalypse. I honestly cannot imagine a more horrifying way to go than by being ripped to shreds by a mass of mumbling, decaying, and oozing corpses with clicking teeth. Ugh! I just shuddered typing it.

Now the boring basics: I'm married with two wonderful children. I grew up in the south listening to a ton of grunge rock. Me and my sister have an obsession with going to concerts and getting front and center. We often fight over who can get the most swag from the band. I have an unhealthy obsession with Russell Brand's mind, and the smell of crayons is the most soothing smell there is.

I hope if you read my work that you will enjoy it. After all, writing is the most amazing magic trick of all... it puts the reader in the mind of the writer (kind of creepy if you think about it). It's scary inside my brain, watch out!

I hope you love my little worlds as much as I do.

Xx- Stevie J
