27 Dresses meets Bridget Jones’s Diary for the millennial set in Erin Lyon's I Love You Subject to the Following Terms and Conditions.

In a world where marriage doesn’t exist—only seven-year contracts—you don’t marry, you sign. You don’t divorce, you breach. And sometimes, you just expire.

Kate is struggling to find her footing. She gave up a career she hated to pursue the law, and now she’s buried in debt and unemployed. At least she’s signed to an amazing guy—hot, sweet, and committed.

Enter the contract killer, the man who pursues only signed women. No commitment, no hassle, all the fun. But Kate has enough fun on her plate… until her partner doesn’t re-up their contract.

After an epic but well-deserved meltdown, Kate gets practical. She accepts a job with her uncle’s law firm, practicing signing law—the one type of law she swore she’d never do. And the contract killer? Now that Kate is single, she’s no longer his type, but he still wants to be friends. Yeah, that’ll work. Kate may be heartbroken, but she’s not impervious to this sexy, smart, and complex man. But hey, it looks like he may not be impervious to her either—signed or not.

Hilariously relatable, with biting wit and charm, The Contract Killers is 27 Dresses meets Bridget Jones’s Diary for the millennial set.

Review
This book was definitely something different than what I normally read.
It was really funny and quite intriguing.
You don't get married, you get signed.
You don't divorce, you breach.
Contracts last for 7 years, and couples will either re-up their contract, or they breach it.
Kate recently finds herself jobless and single, and living with her parents.
In comes Adam Lucas, Contract Killer and Serial Hottie.
Kate goes out with her best friend Logek to try and forget about her ex partner Johnathan, and that's when she meets the mysterious Adam.
I didn't want this book to end and I'm already itching to find out what happens next in this series.
A great debut novel by Erin Lyon.
I would definitely recommend reading it!

Meet Max Kent & Add Fake Fiancée  to your TBR: http://bit.ly/2jh5mIR



 photo FAKE FIANCEE COVER_zpsga1hdsno.jpgBlurb

A new standalone romance from Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills...

They say nothing compares to your first kiss,
But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience.
Our second kiss…that one was REAL.
He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up.
He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed.
Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs,
He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate,
And he'd never get another piece.
A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist...
And I was lost.
I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancée.
I forgot we weren’t REAL.
Our kiss was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don’t exist…
Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.

Get ready for breathtaking kisses and dreamy football players…

Synopsis

Former homicide detective Nicole Foster has hit rock bottom. Driven off the force by her treacherous partner and lover, she’s flat broke and struggling with a gambling addiction. All Nicole has left is the dream of a warm bed at a homeless shelter and the haunting memories of three-year-old Kelsey Chase—whose murder case ended her career.

As Nicole obsesses over the old facts, she realizes everything about that case felt off: a disinterested mom, a suicidal pedophile, and too many questions left unanswered. When the little girl’s grieving father begs Nicole for help, she’s drawn back into the investigation…and given one shot at redemption.

But the deeper Nicole digs, the more evil she uncovers, including betrayals that hit painfully close to home. Will a shocking discovery be the key to finally getting justice for Kelsey and resurrecting her own life?

REVIEW
Wow.... I was not expecting that at all!! This was such a bone chilling story. The twists kept coming. Just when I thought I knew what was happening, another twist was thrown into the mix. 
I never fully knew what was going on, but I think that's what kept my attention. 
I couldn't put this book down. I had to find out what was going on.
I'm pretty sure there were a couple of nights where it was all I dreamed about.
This story has stayed with me and makes me really want to read more from Gregg Olsen.
I definitely recommend reading this story!

Synopsis 
 photo Mind Games_zpseaekvnip.jpg

Sherlock Holmes and Miss James “Mori” Moriarty may have closed their first case, but the mystery is far from over in the thrilling sequel to Lock & Mori, perfect for fans of Maureen Johnson and Sherlock.

You know their names. Now discover their beginnings. 

Mori’s abusive father is behind bars…and she has never felt less safe. Threatening letters have started appearing on her doorstep, and the police are receiving anonymous tips suggesting that Mori—not her father—is the Regent’s Park killer. To make matters worse, the police are beginning to believe them.

Through it all, Lock—frustrating, brilliant, gorgeous Lock—is by her side. The two of them set out to discover who is framing Mori, but in a city full of suspects, the task is easier said than done. With the clock ticking, Mori will discover just how far she is willing to go to make sure that justice is served, and no one—not even Lock—will be able to stop her.

{Book Nerd Tour} A Guide To The Other Side Music Playlist + GIVEAWAY!

 photo A_Guide_To_The_Other_Side_Banner_zpsg8jbzreo.jpg



 photo A Guide to the Other Side_zpsypqhthpn.jpgSynopsis 

A boy and his ghostly twin sister work together to pass messages from the beyond in this funny paranormal debut.

There are a few things you should know about Baylor Bosco: He’s thirteen-years-old, he has a twin sister, and he really does NOT like ghosts…which is problematic because he’s a medium and sees ghosts everywhere.

Oh, and his twin sister, Kristina? She’s a ghost too.

They’ve been working as a pair for years, expertly relaying messages from ghosts to their still-living loved ones. Baylor’s even managed to come up with an introductory phrase—one that he has to use far too often.

But when a strange ghost shows up close to Halloween, a grown man, covered in a sheet, with only his black leather shoes showing from the bottom, Baylor starts to wonder if something else has taken notice of him. And when his sister goes missing, somehow ghost-napped, he’s forced to figure out the truth about the Sheet Man and his sister’s disappearance, all without his usual ghostly ambassador.

Rose’s Music Playlist for A GUIDE TO THE OTHER SIDE
I’m weird. I write to music, yes, but not to specific songs that match the feeling and mood of certain scenes and key moments. Instead, I tend to play really intense or emotional music during the whole writing process. In my weird little writer brain, I like to think I can channel the emotion from songs into whatever scene I’m writing, whether it’s funny, sad, suspenseful, spooky, or whatever I’m going for. So, while it might not seem to make sense that I’ve written some of my funniest scenes while listening to Adele belt about her perennially broken heart, it works. Here’s a sampling of what made A GUIDE TO THE OTHER SIDE come together: 
1. Someone Like You – Adele (Obviously.)
2. Apocalypse Please – Muse 
3. Poison & Wine – The Civil Wars
4. The Re-Arranger – Mates of State
5. Lover of the Light – Mumford and Sons 
6. Just Like a Pill – Pink 
7. Butterflies and Hurricanes – Muse 
8. When We Were Young – Adele 
9. Colder Weather – Zac Brown Band
10. Awake My Soul – Mumford and Sons
