Book Blitz: Reap by Casey L. Bond


The remnants of the United States of America have been divided. From five enormous, technologically-advanced cities, the Greaters rule over the Lessers. In the Lesser village of Orchard, things are not as perfect as Abby Kelley thinks they are. When the apple harvest draws near and the Greater’s engineered fruits become too much for one village to handle alone, reinforcements from neighboring villages are called upon.

Having to choose between her best friend, whom she has no romantic feelings for, and mysterious newcomer Crew, Abby finds herself in the middle of a harvest that she had no intention of becoming a part of. She becomes involved in a situation that threatens the strict rule of the Greaters, and just might give the Lessers hope for a better tomorrow. But, can she help the Lessers without losing Crew? And if she chooses Crew, will she lose her best friend?


Something was touching my face, caressing my cheek. The skin that brushed mine was rough, hardened by the work we all share. Am I dreaming? I waited, trying to see if this was real or part of a dream. Whichever it was, it was nice, comforting.

Rough fingertips moved over the parts of my back that weren’t split open and packed with gunk. I sucked in a breath and held it. This was real. I moved my head and saw his silhouette against the candlelight flickering in from the kitchen and living room. “Ky?” My voice was raspy and barely sounded like my own. Sleep and exhaustion filled every chord.

“Shh. I’m here.” Suddenly, I was very aware that I was lying shirtless on my bed. Even though, I was on my stomach, that didn’t help me feel any less naked in front of my best friend, who happened to be a member of the male species—a very fine male specimen according to my girlfriends.

I knew he was handsome. I wasn’t blind. But, I didn’t see him like that. He’d dated many of my friends and now was getting ready to marry Paige Winters in just a few weeks, after the harvest was complete and the orchards picked bare. His fingertips trace the in-tact skin between my shoulder blades and I tensed under his touch.

He’d kissed my head and temple and hugged me more times than I can count, but this was somehow different. This was more intimate. His touch was delicate, gentle compared to his normal strength and anything but playful. “Ky?”

He didn’t answer. His fingers explored my back, careful not to stray too close to the wounds that streaked across my skin. “Kyan?”

“Shut up, Abby. Just let me... Just shut up.” He’d never talked to me like this. His voice was raspy and he’d never, ever told me to shut up before. So I did. I wasn’t sure why. He shouldn’t have been touching my skin. Shouldn’t have been caressing the good parts left of me, but sitting with me in the dark, he was doing exactly that and I was allowing it.

Paige would be furious if she saw us now. She’d always had a jealous streak, had always hated any girl who dated or flirted with Ky. Lately, she told anyone and everyone who will listen that Kyan was hers and that she hated me with a passion. She wasn’t lying. She hated me. Rather, she hated my relationship with Ky. He was my best friend. I wasn’t interested in him as anything more or anything else. I’d told her that. He’d told her that a million times. But, she refused to listen, adamant that I wanted him for myself, adamant that he wanted me. I honestly didn’t have those types of feelings for Kyan. I never have had them. Ever. And up until now, I’d always thought he felt the same. But feeling his fingers exploring my skin made even me question that sentiment. And it scared me to death.

Author Interview:

Can you tell us about your book, Reap, in 15 words or less? An intense dystopian read with tension and an impossible romance sprinkled in!

What was your favorite scene to write? It was the very last scene with Kyan. It sets up the sequel perfectly and I hope leaves readers screaming, “I have to have the next book NOW!”

Do you have a favorite quote from Reap?  I have several, but this is probably my favorite. “Think about it. The present is a myth. It’s just what we try to call the split second that our past collides with our future.” ~Gray

If you could cast any of the characters who would you choose?
Abby Kelley would be played by Ruth Bradley. (She plays Beauty on the CW’s Beauty & the Beast)
Zac Efron for Crew.
Armie Hammer for Kyan.
Aubrey Plaza for Paige.
Nicholas Hoult for Gray.
Bree Larson for Laney.
Those would be my my dream cast members! <3

Did any music inspire you while writing Reap? Music almost always always inspires my writing. I was listening to The Civil Wars and  Imagine Dragons. “Night Train” by Jason Aldean inspired one scene, as did “Stupid Boy,” by Keith Urban.
How many books will be in this series? The plan at this point is three. I’m about seven chapters into writing book two and am wondering if there might not end up being four. I have so much to say. SO much is going to happen in this series.
Are you currently working on anything else? My YA Fantasy, Pariah, releases on May 13, 2014. I’m not actively writing it, but am brainstorming plot ideas. I’m so excited to share that book with the world, too!
What is the best book you’ve read recently? Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan.
What is currently in your TBR pile? Take a Gamble by Rachael Brownell, both of Casey Peeler’s books and Sparrows for Free by Lila Felix. Oh, and Magic Unfolds by N.L. Greene! I loved Illusions Begin, the first book in that series and can’t wait to read book two.

I want to read Tahera Mafi’s series and Maze Runner but will wait until I’m finished writing Resist. I don’t like to read from the same genre of my work in progress. Just a personal thing.

Review: My Not So Super Sweet Life by Rachel Harris


Cat Crawford just wants to be normal—or at least as normal as a daughter of Hollywood royalty can be. And it looks like fate is granting her wish: she’s got an amazing boyfriend, Lucas; her fabulous cousin, Alessandra, living with her; and her dad planning his second marriage to a great future stepmom. That is, until her prodigal mother reveals on national television that she has something important to tell her daughter…causing a media frenzy.

Lucas Capelli knows his fate is to be with Cat, and he’s worked hard to win her over once and for all. Unfortunately, Lucas has his own issues to deal with, including a scandal that could take him away from the first place he’s truly belonged.

As secrets are revealed, rumors explode, and the world watches, Cat and Lucas discover it’s not fate they have to fight if they want to stay together…this time, it’s their own insecurities.

Well, and the stalkerazzi.

About the Author:

Rachel Harris grew up in New Orleans, where she watched soap operas with her grandmother and stayed up late sneak reading her mama's favorite romance novels. Now a Cajun cowgirl living in Houston, she still stays up way too late reading her favorite romances, only now, she can do so openly. She firmly believes life's problems can be solved with a hot, powdered-sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations.

When not typing furiously or flipping pages in an enthralling romance, she homeschools her two beautiful girls and watches way too much reality television with her amazing husband. She writes YA, NA, and Adult Fun & Flirty Escapes. She loves talking with readers! Find her at www.RachelHarrisWrites.com

My Review:

What a phenomenal book! Cat and Lucas were amazing together!

I felt so connected to Cat as I followed her ups and downs on her journey of reconnecting with her mom. Her complicated feelings going into the renewed relationship with her mom made sense to me. It's probably how I would have felt if I had been in her shoes. I've been in that situation with someone close to be before, so I totally get it. It's like when you've been hurt so badly in the past, but you still love the person and hope that maybe one day things will be made right. But part of you worries that it never really will be. It involves a lot of fear, caution, hope, and pain. But you keep holding onto that one little piece of hope because if things work out the way you want it would all be worth it. That being said, I like the way Rachel ended things between Cat and her mom. It seemed realistic to me.

Lucas is such a solid guy. Loving, passionate, caring, loyal, tender, and unselfish. I loved getting to know him on a deeper level and discovering what haunts him from his past. Watching his journey to self-discovery was AWESOME.

Rachel did such an amazing job with the character arcs, as she does in all her books. Both Cat and Lucas were able to face their inner demons and overcome their challenges. The final scene was touching and had my heart doing a happy dance!

Sweet Confections (Indulgence Row series, #1) by Danyelle Ferguson


According to Rachel Marconi chocolate heals all wounds. That and throwing darts at pictures of her ex-boyfriend. Burned by yet another bad relationship, Rachel decides to reprioritize her life, putting her dream to compete on a Food Network Challenge on the top of her list and dating at the bottom crossed out in red sharpie. But what's a girl to do when a certain sexy guy keeps asking her out?

Cue in Graydon Green, a former pro hockey player turned restaurant owner. After a lot of persistent and humorous teasing, he finally convinces Rachel to commit to a date. Just when things begin to warm up, threatening notes directed at Rachel arrive. When her bakery is vandalized, Graydon's protective streak goes on red alert. Is it her obsessive ex-boyfriend stalking her? Or maybe a challenger trying to sabotage the

Either way, Rachel is definitely going to need more chocolate - perhaps drizzled over ice cream and devil's food cake.

About the Author:

Danyelle Ferguson discovered her love for the written word in elementary school. Her first article was published when she was in 6th grade. Since then, she’s won several awards and her work has been published world-wide in newspapers, magazines and books.

Danyelle grew up surrounded by Pennsylvania’s beautiful Allegheny Mountains. Then she lived for ten years among the majestic Wasatch Mountains. She is currently experiencing mountain-withdrawal while living in Kansas with her husband and family. 

She enjoys reading, writing, dancing and singing in the kitchen, and the occasional long bubble bath to relax from the everyday stress of being “Mommy.”

My Review:

This story sucked me in on so many fronts. First, the bakery, and then the mouthwateringly delicious goodies described throughout the book. And no, I'm not talking about the cupcakes or the eclairs. I'm talking about Grayson Green, the famous ex-hockey player. Wowza! Just kidding. The yummy desserts really were giving me some sugar cravings the entire time.

I was immediately wrapped up in this story when it started out so explosively: Rachel Marconi discovers the shocking news that the man with whom she's been getting fairly serious has a wife and kids back in Italy. Then she's immediately rescued by the big, strong Grayson Green. Like a series of fireworks this story just keeps going on until the middle where it slows for a while. I'm not sure what exactly I expected, but it felt like the characters were restraining a bit too much. I think it's fine to keep it clean, I'm all about that, but I think I would have liked to maybe see a bit more emotional connection and hearts longing for companionship. Anyway that part didn't last very long and before I knew it the story was exploding away again with one event more intriguing and exciting than the next. I really enjoyed the Food Network part of the story and the mystery that was woven into the plot. I would have liked to see a bit more of that earlier on in the story. It was a fun element that I don't always see in this genre. 

Overall, I really enjoyed Sweet Confections. It was almost completely perfect, and I have recommended it to many of my friends since reading it.
