Ring in the New Year with LUVO

Start 2017 with great tasting food that is nutritious too. Let’s get healthy with LUVO together!

Luvo is a brand that is all about quick meals that are nurtritious and delicious. Everyone has a busy schedule and this sometimes makes it hard to cook meals that are healthy. One of the things that we love about LUVO is that they incorporate fruits and veggies in every entree. The have meals that are perfect for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And they are easy to make.

Breakfast meals include Farmer’s Market Frittata and Steel-Cut Oatmeal. The Farmer’s Market Frittata is pictured below

fritatta

It is so yummy and a great way to start your day! It has sweet potato mango hash with spicy garden salsa and filled with over 10g of protein 🙂 The flavor is perfect with just the right of spicy and sweet.

There are 14 entrees to choose from. They are perfect for lunch or dinner. Stuck at work? No worries. Just heat one of the entrees up and in less than 10 minutes you will have a perfectly plated, delicious, and nutritious meal!

Here are some of our favorites:

enchilada

The chicken enchiladas are amazing.They stay true to the Mexican dish and is the right portion. It is filling, but you won’t feel stuffed. I love that the rice is organic. Such a great brand that has everything to help us stay healthy, but have meals that actually taste good.

polenta

The Chicken Chile Verde is also a favorite. It is a little spicy and definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a little kick to their meal. It comes with a side of polenta and black beans. We grew  up in a house where our grandpa would cook this and after he passed we never could never find the right recipe. This reminds us of our grandpa’s version.. but it’s even better because it’s healthier 🙂

orange-mango-chicken

Our favorite has got to be the Orange Mango Chicken. The flavors are impeccable. You can really taste each flavor. It is sweet because of the mangos. OMG we can’t even begin to tell you how amazing they taste. You can taste the freshness. The chicken is so good. The sauce really adds to the flavor and makes it that much more enjoyable. The combination of organic rice, kale, and brocolli is a busrt of goodness. We are huge fans of kale and love to use it in our meals. We could seriously eat this for lunch/dinner and always leaves us satisfied. You must try this dish!

If you have tried LUVO, you know how good these meals are and if you are a newbie get ready to fall in love with these meals! For more information on where you can find these meals in your area head here–> http://luvoinc.com/where-to-buy/

Happy Healthy Eating!

Release Blitz & Review: The Italian by Beverly Preston

16-11-28-the-italian-ebook
Photo: Scott Hoover
Cover model: Josh Kloss
Cover design: Caylee Rae Photography
Release Date: December 27, 2016
Synopsis

No ties.
No expectations.
No risks.

Antonio Giovanni, a fifth-generation winemaker in the rolling hills of Tuscany, is the epitome of temptation. Tall, dark, and handsome with an accent sexy enough to leave a trail of women’s panties in his wake. The man wears charisma like a fine silk suit…flawless and molded to perfection in all the right places, leaving just enough mystery to make you wonder what lies beneath the faultless exterior.

Hope Tidwell, a world-renowned sommelier, is a strong independent woman who fights to have control over every aspect of her life. She makes her own money, her own decisions, her own happiness, and her own mistakes. Her existence doesn’t need to be validated by a man; she refuses to ask for anything except an orgasm, and even those she can manage on her own.

Relationships for most people are as natural as breathing. However, Hope and Antonio are two players who master the art of seduction and the fear of emotional intimacy. When tragedy strikes close to her heart, Hope is fated to do the one thing that terrifies her most.

Destiny reveals the biggest gifts often require the greatest sacrifices.

REVIEW:

Beverly Preston deserves a standing ovation. The Italian had me captured from the first page. It was seductive, shocking, promising, witty, and yet so unpredictable! I fell in love with Hope and Antonio. They are alike in more ways than they realize. They have so much love to give, yet are so afraid of commitment. Beverly wrote with so much eloquence. Her words were affecting and appealing with the perfect delivery of each and every significant scene.

Hope Tidwell is focused on one thing, her career. She doesn’t need anyone, especially a man to make her the woman she is. She thinks her life is complete, but that is not the case. A surprise gift appears that she can’t say no to. Hope learns how to be open to love and everything that comes along with it.

Antonio Giovanni has met his match in Hope.. He is hot, a winemaker, and did I mention he has an accent. They have had a strictly sexual agreement for over 5 years, and are satisfied with that (but I’m not ;). When Hope faces a tragedy, Antonio is there for her in so many ways. He is so compassionate and stands by those he cares about. When he comes back into her life, he is definitely surprised. Who knew a surprise could cause so many emotions?  He is shocked at her new look and starts thinking about his feelings for Hope. Can he expect her new change? Is it love or lust?

I read this book two times in less than a week because it was just that good. The characters were so fun to read about and be introduced to. I experienced so many feels while reading. I was in tears because of what Hope had to face, but also proud of the way she overcame it. She was always strong and determined, but when she was forced to make tough decisions she went with what she knew was right no matter how tough it was. I loved Antonio from  the very beginning.Yes, you will experience some jealousy towards Hope because she gets know this man. He was confident and sexy and always stood up for what he thought was right. It was amazing to read about his relationship with Hope and seeing them have a realization about their true feelings. I had a glass of wine in honor of them and can’t wait to read more from Beverly.

Publication Date: February 21st, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Social Butterfly PR is thrilled to present the cover for PUCKED OFF, a sexy, new standalone coming soon from Helena Hunting!

PUCKEDOFF_trim.jpg

Synopsis:

***A Standalone novel in The Pucked Series***

I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance.”

I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.

Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.

I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.

At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.

I shouldn’t want her.

But I do.

I should leave her alone.

But I won’t.

Sean

 

 

 

I’m not your average seventeen-year-old boy. 
 

 

What other teenage boy do you know of, is
working alongside their father in a top-secret government agency, and has been
since they were fifteen?
 
 

 

Unheard of? Yes probably. 
 

 

After spending years searching for my place in
this world, I jumped at the opportunity to help my father. What I didn’t expect
was the possibility that our work could flow over and harm our family.
 

 

Yet that’s exactly what happened …
 

 

I thought I’d found, and then lost the girl who
would forever hold my heart – until a sexy ass stranger crossed my path under
the Brooklyn Bridge.
 
 

 

I want this girl, like I’ve never wanted anyone.
She makes me feel things that I should feel guilty about, that I shouldn’t be
needing as desperately as I do.
 

 

Only there’s a catch …………. She has secrets, ones
that could have a devastating impact.
 
 

 

Hadley 

 

He was supposed to be a job. 
 

 

A target that needed to be eliminated. 
 

 

A message that we weren’t a family to mess with. 
 

 

When my chance came, I couldn’t do it. There was
a presence about him that drew me in. I went from wanting to kill him, to
wanting him in my arms.
 

 

From that moment on he became my obsession …
 

 

I’m no good for him, which is why I should stay
away from him. I will only destroy him because I’m broken, a girl with a dark
past – the daughter of an Italian mobster. Our family is one of the largest in
Brooklyn.
 
 

 

I need to escape my father, and this life. 
 

 

I need someone to swoop in and save me, but I’m
scared because bad things happen to me – and the people I love.

What to tell
you about myself??
When I sat down
to set about the challenge of what I could say, I found that I didn’t really
consider myself to be very interesting at all. 
I’ve lived in
Western Australia my whole life, only ever leaving the country once. Right now
though I reside in a southern suburb close to the beach.
Above
everything else I’m a wife and a mother. I’ve been married to a man I believe
to be my soul mate for the past nine years. When he came into my life I already
had two gorgeous kids, a boy and girl, who he took on as his own without any
consideration as to how it would affect his life. During our time together, he
has also blessed me with two more gorgeous little girls. My real life also has
me working full time as an Office Manager for an Audio Visual
Company.   
 I grew up in a
home with three aunties, two uncles, my younger brother, my father, and my
grandparents!! Wow that was more of mouthful than I expected! As you can
imagine life in a large family like that was never boring
 J
  As a child, I
loved creating stories in my head, it was my escape, a place I could go and
hide from the world. As I became older, my stories evolved and every time life
challenged me, I slipped back into my imaginary world and hid. This didn’t
change as I entered adulthood.
 
I have always
been the kind of person who never made things easy for herself, and I spent
many years drifting from family member to family member looking for direction.
It wasn’t until I was twenty-one when I met a man who would become, what I
thought – my future.  Over the next twelve years he was my life, well him,
and the two children he blessed me with. 
We lost that
loving husband, and father to a heart attack when our children were very young,
and life as you can imagine became a little rough for a while.
Over the years
my stories have given me the sanity to get through many tragic situations. 
They’ve given
me a world to escape into, one where I can be anything I want. 
These stories
I’ve created over the years, have always been a coping mechanism that worked
for me, and I’ve always wanted to share them.
With the
support of my family I have ventured out there, and finally put them down on
paper. I hope you love them as much as I do.

about-the-book-finding-mr-wrong-black
fmw_frontcover_finalversionHere’s a tip: never trust a jackass in preppy clothing.

The phrase “trust me” should have been my first clue to hightail it out the door, but hindsight is always 20/20.

So there I was, on a stage with two other men, being asked ridiculous questions by a woman I couldn’t see, but whose voice made my pants tighten—and not around my ankles.

Before I knew what was happening, I’d signed up for six weeks in paradise, isolated on an island for forty-two days with a complete stranger. And when I finally laid eyes on the sexy brunette who belonged to that voice, a part of me thought this wouldn’t be so bad.

I’ve always been a levelheaded guy. I am a successful, smart, and shrewd business man. But that was when I was listening to the head above my shoulders. Once the blood traveled south, I always ran into trouble.

She called me Mr. Wrong, and that was fine with me.

Lesson learned: lust always trumps logic.
