Release Blitz ~ Alternate by Marilyn Almodovar

When a portal leaves Baxter trapped and powerless in an alternate world,
she finds herself on the run and fighting for her life. The world’s
Council wants to hand her over to Declan, and her only source of support
is a broken Alternate Jack who blames her for all he’s lost. Baxter
soon realizes that if she’s going to defeat Declan and get back to her
world, she’ll have to reclaim her abilities and be stronger than she
ever imagined.

Declan and the Absorbers’ Initiative wage war on everyone who
opposes them in their hunt for Baxter. Their actions reveal what her
future will be like if she doesn’t make some drastic decisions. She
knows that one misstep on her part will lead to the destruction of not
just this world, but her own.

In a race against Time and bitter enemies, Baxter will discover how
much is at stake and just what she’ll have to sacrifice to save those
she loves. Can she learn from the fate of an alternate world how to
become the Time Bender she’s meant to be?

Unable to keep it to myself any longer, I’d told Megan, hoping she’d talk it out with me and maybe keep an eye on things with them while I was gone.

Boy, was I wrong.

“That’s nice,” she’d replied when I told her. She didn’t even look away from her Kindle to acknowledge that I’d spoken.

“Yeah, Megan, I hope so. This is our parents I’m talking about. Can you at least look at me?”

I stood over her bed, looking down as I waited for her response, and … nothing.

She just kept on reading.

“You’re turning into a real jerk, you know that?”

“Takes one to know one,” was her witty response.

“You know what, I’m not going to let you do it. You aren’t making me mad so that I jump on top of you and start a fight … Nuh uh, I’m not messing up this trip for anything. So you can go ahead and sit there, with your greasy head, stuck in your stupid book, and forget I said anything. And make sure you don’t touch any of my stuff while I’m gone.”

With all of that said, I’d whirled around and stomped down the stairs.

When I heard her yell out, “Whatever,” I bit back the scream of frustration in my throat.

#SampleSunday ~ Always Room for Cupcakes by Bethany Lopez

Always Room for Cupcakes

Cover Reveal - Jan 6th
Release Date - Feb 2nd
Add on Goodreads

One day I was be-bopping along jamming to the music in my head while wondering if my thighs could handle grabbing a cupcake on the way home. The next thing I knew, my entire world crashed and burned.

I used to wake up at night in a sweat, crying because I’d dreamt that my husband was cheating on me, or that he hated me, and resented my kids. He’d always hold me close and tell me it was all just a dream, that he loved me and our family and that he’d never let me go.

He was a fucking liar.

Now I spend my days taking photos of scum just like him, trying to be a champion for other's being taken advantage of by the losers in our town, and my nights being a single mom to my beautiful twins.

I've got great friends who have my back, and a sexy, mysterious motorcycle man who keeps showing up when I need him. Maybe things are starting to look up, and one thing's for sure... There's always room for cupcakes.

Sample Sunday

After I got a couple shots, I decided it was best to sneak out the back rather than show my face in the storefront again. I slowly pushed the back door open and eased out.
Who the fuck are you?”
I whipped my head up as I was shoving the camera back in my purse, and saw a strange man standing by a rehabbed old Camaro, smoking a cigarette.
“Uh … a friend of Clarice’s. I was just using the bathroom,” I managed, not sure who the guy was, or what my next move should be.
“Yeah?” he asked, throwing his cigarette to the ground and taking a step toward me. “You need a camera to do that?”
Before he could make another move, I secured my bag on my shoulder, turned and took off like a shot.
I hit Main Street, cursing myself for wearing the damn boots when the sound of a motorcycle pulling up along side of me caused me to turn my head.
My first thought was, where the hell did the bike come from?
Then I realized it wasn’t the slimy guy from behind the salon. The bike came to a stop and the most dangerously beautiful man I’d ever seen rumbled, “Get your sweet ass on the bike.”
I stood there for a moment, wondering what in the hell was happening, if I should get on this strange man’s bike, and if I was offended or flattered by his sweet ass comment.
Darlin’,” he prodded.
I turned my head to look behind me, and saw the slimy guy standing at the side of Clarice’s, and made a quick decision to accept … his offer of a ride, and the compliment. So, I swung my leg up and over the bike, settled my front to his back, and curled my arms around the thick bulk of his muscled body.
Tingling head to toe from the adrenaline, and the close contact with a seriously hot man, I couldn’t stop my lips from spreading into a grin as we took off down Main Street.
