Sometimes,
you don’t know what you’re missing until you find it.
Aela
is a shy and quiet, University student with her future mapped out and doesn’t
think she could be happier- unless maybe if the hot guy she’s crushing on from
the gym would notice her existence.
Not
that she has time for a guy right now…
Declan
should be happy. His tattoo parlour is a growing success, he can have his pick
of beautiful women any night he so chooses and he’s easily able to provide for
his mother and baby sister. He has everything he needs. But something is
missing…
Until
their two worlds collide, quite literally, and a fateful mishap ensures nothing
will ever be the same again.
Unfortunately,
things start unravelling for Declan and he is forced to decide if having Aela’s
love is worth risking her life.
Will
they find a way to overcome their obstacles? Or is this just another loss
Declan will have to learn to live with?

~Aela~
My lungs and legs start to burn with
exhaustion, but I ignore it as I push to finish my last couple of kilometres on
the treadmill. So I turn the music up that’s already blaring in my headphones
for motivation.
I recheck the reflection in the window in
vain and try to ignore the pang of disappointment when the view of the weight
room is still the same—which is ridiculous. How can you miss someone you don’t
even know?
There’s sudden movement beside me, and I
startle, stumble and barely manage to save myself from face planting onto the
treadmill. I glare at Kara, who had just appeared out of nowhere on my left.
“What the hell are you trying to do, kill
me?” I gasp as I rip my headphones from my head. She laughs hysterically, bent
over clutching her stomach, which draws the attention of everyone around us.
“Your face… priceless. Oh, my God. I can’t
breathe,” Kara gasps through her laughter while I turn off the now
life-threatening machine as I wait for her to stop.
I deepen my glare.
“You’re a total bitch. What are you even
doing down here?” I ask when she finally straightens, her laugh turning into a
quiet giggle as she tries to control it.
“I thought I’d take advantage of the
resident’s discount and come see what you were doing.

Celebrate the Holidays with The Modern Christmas Tree

Christmas is the time for celebrating and decorating. The holiday season should not be stressful. With “The Modern Christmas Tree” setup will be so easy and simple even Santa would approve.

The chic and contemporary tree was handmade by engineer, architect, and designer Lawrence ‘Bud’ Stoecker in the mid 1960s. The modern design has stayed in the family and was revived by Sotecker’s grandson Matt Bliss in 2012. Take a look at The Large Modern Christmas Tree 

tree4

Can you imagine this in your home? We can! Standing at 7.5ft tall and containing (96) 2” Glass pentalogue chandelier crystals with chrome pin, hand cut and polished.
and (96) Classic red, green, blue, or silver glass ball ornaments will be impossible to miss and will have everyone adding it to thier Christmas list. Available in more options.

One of our favorite things about this brand is that they are all about family and charity. And isn’t that what the holidays are all about? Not only does Matt Bliss have a passion for making every house SHINE BRIGHT, but he also contributes a portion  of every sale to the Alzheimer’s Association. His grandfather suffered from Alzheimer’s and sadly passed away withing a couple days before the patent was issued. It is such a heartwarming to know that it started with a simple cardboard idea.

We can’t forget about this beauty called The Jubilee.

About Listen to Your Heart:

Wedding planner Skye Douglas makes a career out of bringing fairytales to life—even if she’s given up on her own happily ever after. Instead of dating, she devotes time to her nephew, a guitar prodigy who shares her love for 80s hair bands. When she encounters Caleb Lynch, the new guitar teacher, everything changes. Caleb’s passion for music—not to mention his Def Leppard T-shirt—makes Skye wonder if she might get her storybook ending after all.

 

Caleb would do anything for those he loves—including a fake engagement as a gift to his best friend’s dying mother. But after meeting Skye, he regrets the promise he made.

 

When Skye realizes she’s fallen for the groom, will she listen to her head . . . or her heart?

Exclusive Excerpt:

My mouth snaps closed when I finally spot my nephew. Sitting next to him is a man wearing a leather jacket with a Def Leppard T-shirt peeking through. He’s holdaing a guitar and showing Eli how to make a chord. My heart starts to pound as I watch the new music teacher interact with Eli and the rest of the kids. He’s soft-spoken and patient, and when the kids strum their guitars in perfect unison, his face morphs into the most toe-curling smile I’ve ever seen on a man. Suddenly, he lifts his head and his eyes find mine.

“Wow,” I whisper.

He doesn’t look like a teacher. He looks like a rock star, with his grungy clothes and his jet-black hair that’s just long enough to curl around the nape of his neck.

When class is dismissed, the mothers rush toward the new music teacher, shaking his hand and offering their business cards, just in case he ever needs to reach them. Equally disgusted and impressed with their blatant flirting—and far too shy to participate myself—I find Eli and all but shove him toward the door. He tugs on my hand.

“Aunt Skye, wait . . . I want you to meet Caleb.”

“Could I meet him later? He seems really busy, Eli.”

My nephew shakes his head and pulls me toward the mommy mob. I’m being ridiculous, I know. An hour ago, I was a happy, career-driven woman who didn’t need a man to make her life complete. Now I’m nervous and sweaty and acting like a girl with a high school crush.

Guess it doesn’t matter how old you are. Pretty boys make you stupid.

I sneakily rub my clammy palms on my slacks just as the seas part, and suddenly, I find myself staring into the deep blue eyes of the new music teacher.

Pretty boys are even prettier up close.

And we’re just staring at each other.

My totally oblivious nephew grows impatient with all the staring and starts making the introductions.

“This is my Aunt Skye.”

He offers me his hand. “Hey, Aunt Skye. I’m Caleb.”

“It’s nice to meet you.”

“Pleasure’s all mine.”

“Eli’s really excited that you’ll be taking Ms. Carol’s place for a while. I mean, he loves her, obviously, but we all understand that she needs this time away, and it’s good to know that he’s in good hands and we just really appreciate . . . everything.”

I’m babbling, but he’s nice enough to stand there and smile at me while I do.

And he’s still holding my hand.

“Do you like music?” Caleb asks.

“She’s obsessed with it,” Eli replies, and I’m suddenly reminded that there’s a ten year old standing between us. Caleb must realize it at the same time, because he loudly clears his throat and let’s go of my hand.

“Well, Eli is an excellent guitarist. I’m looking forward to working with him.”

“Thanks. We’re really proud of him.”

“You should be.”

Eli beams as Caleb pats him on the shoulder.

We stand awkwardly staring at each other for a few more minutes until Eli’s growling stomach breaks the spell. We all laugh.

“I should feed him. It was nice meeting you, Caleb.”

“Burger Palace?” Eli pleads.

Caleb chuckles. “They do have the best burgers.”

“You should come with us!”

Caleb’s eyes dart to mine.

“Umm . . .” Not that I have a problem spending more time with Caleb. I’m just not sure a trip to Burger Palace is his idea of a good time.

“I’d love to, if it’s okay with your Aunt Skye.”

Eli looks up at me with wide, hopeful eyes.

“Is it okay with my Aunt Skye?”

I laugh. “Sure, it’s okay.”

Caleb’s answering smile makes my body tremble in a way that it hasn’t trembled in . . . ever.

I’m in trouble.

Shooter Season Premiere Review

“Guns chane everything. And a bullet is forever”- Bob Lee Swagger

Shooter had us hooked from the start of the episode. No need to invest in chairs when you watch this show because you will be on the edge of your seat the entire time. Ryan Phillippe portrayed Bob Lee Swagger so perfectly. He made us love him for the way he treated animals and his family, had us captured in research/educated guesses, and had us captivated by at all that SWAGGER. Majore lesson of premiere night we should all know is that YOU DON’T UNDERESTIMATE BOB LEE SWAGGER (did you hear that Jack?).

In the opening sequence, we get a glimpse of the life of hunting: Swagger edition. In less than 5 minutes, he saved a deer, kicked some ass, and gave an “dentist”t a lesson in guns.

As the episode progresses, we get to see Bob Lee Swagger the family man. He is great with his daughter and wife. The location of their house in Virgina was calming, serene, and perfect for the Swagger’s. Hard not to love a man that does the dishes, chooses nature over Wi-Fi, and tells the best stories for Story Time (night vision not included) 😉 Can’t wait to see more of the Swagger’s throughout the season.

After Bob Lee won’t do kung fu on a plank (thanks for trying Mary), we meet Captain Isaac Johnson (Omar Epps). Isaac brings him a case to view. A CIA Agent was shot by a sniper from 1400 yards. The shooter left a note saying that the president would be executed in 21 days. Why did he come to Bob Lee you may ask? Well, they believe it is the same shooter who shot and killed his friend Donny (Rob Brown). Swagger is hesitant and then Isaac throws in the “country needs you” card. We don’t trust this Isaac.

We meet Agent Nadine Memphis (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) when she leads an FBI team to raid a russian mob establishment. Homeland is there at the same time and turns into a big mess. The meeting between her and Isaac felt like a staredown. We give the first round to Isaac, but feel like Memphis will win in the end. She knows her job and like Bob Lee trusts her instincts.

Shooter did a great job with the flashback and research sequences. The flashback sequence that showed what happened to Donny was important to let the fans in and understand him better. Just from that sequence we could tell that he is a loyal man who will do anything he can to protect the ones he cares for. The research scenes had every calculation you could think of and them some. The way the scenes zoned in on locations and measurement was very cool to watch. We get to meet Jack Payne (Eddie McClintock), a Solotov expert,  during one of the research scenes. He is not impressed with Bob Lee and we already don’t care too much for the man. And don’t even get us started on those shooting scenes. The scene where Swagger was testing Solotovs optics was genius. Pumpkins were harmed during the making of the episode and we aren’t even mad. We found ourselves holding our breath and exhaled when he made that 1580 yard shot!

The final sequence was really a joy to watch. Blinking was halted during this time. We knew something was off when Swagger found push pin on the floor. Racing to stop the inevitable was a thrill to watch. Shooter is our favorite new show. We have been fans of USA Network, but this show just makes us love them more. Love that this show is not afraid to push some boundaries yet is genuine to it’s story. It feels like we are watching a live video in the life of Bob Lee Swagger. Hands down the  best premiere of 2016!

The cast was so good. Ryan Phillippe portrayed Bob Lee Swagger so well! We saw the movie with Mark Wahlberg, and no disrespect to the great and talented Mr. Wahlberg, but in one hour we completely forgot about that portrayal. Also major props for making jumping out of a building look graceful 😉 Julie Swagger played by the amazingly talented Shantel VanSanten nailed it. She portrayed a supportive wife who isn’t afraid to call Bob on his bullshit. The daughter, Mary Swagger (Lexy Kolker), is the cutest. Definitely one of our favorites. She gets hangry (like most of us), snitches on her dad, and loves a fun story about war for bed time. Omar Epps was commanding in this episode. Exactly what we can imagine a memeber of secret service team being. With that being said, we still don’t trust Isaac. Agent Memphis played by one of our favorite actresses Cynthia Addai-Robinson had us wanting more from her. We can tell she is not one to be messed with and are looking forward to seeing more of how she handles the SWAGGER situation. Now, Eddie McClintock you have made us dislike and have absolutely no trust in your character in one episde. Job well done. A round of applause to everyone involved in this show. We are proud to say that we are already obsessed with this show. How can we wait an entire week for a new episode? Well, we know it will be worth the wait. Eager to see what Shooter has in store for us this season.

Don’t forget to watch Shooter every Tuesday at 10/9c on USA Network.

aboutthebook

whenithitsthefan-final-frontcoverSometimes the hardest lesson you have to learn is that you can’t control everything. Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and trust that it will all be okay in the end.

Camilla Valentini is a planner. Ever since she could write, she would sit down and compose lists of her daily to do’s, her goals, and her dreams. These lists have taken her through most of her life and served her well. She is living in the city that she loves, has a job that pays the bills or at least most of them, and has the best group of friends a girl can ask for.

However when her life gets turned upside down by a fire in her apartment building, she is left with no place to live, piles of burnt manuscripts, and more importantly only one pair of shoes! As far as she is concerned, things couldn’t get worse. Until she gets fired from her job as a copy editor. Apparently, it was a big mistake to not go on that date with the boss’s son.

Faced with some difficult decisions to make, Cami will have to take a close look at who she is and if she even likes that person. Because when it hits the fan, that is when things really start to get interesting and you can become who you were always meant to be.

about-the-book-4

At fifteen I fell in love. His name was Jake Stephens and he took the abandoned, lonely girl I had been and made me whole. His love was a pure and unconditional love that made every day better than the last…a fairy tale of my very own.

But this story isn’t about Jake. It’s about Abel Madden; the man I meet after the fairy tale goes to hell. A cocky, arrogant man who says what he wants, does as he pleases, and makes no excuses for it. He irritates me—downright pisses me off at times—but he also brings me back to life.

My name is Sidney Ellis and this is my story of finding love twice—the first when I needed it most and the second when I never saw it coming.
