A is for Abstinence
by Kelly Oram

Six-time Grammy Award wining musician Kyle Hamilton has it all—money, fame, talent, good looks, and a job he loves. His only regret in life: walking away from a certain notorious virgin because he was too prideful, stubborn, and even afraid to give her the only thing she asked of him—his abstinence.

Four years and a broken heart later, Kyle realizes that sex isn’t everything, and he suddenly can’t stop thinking about the girl that got away. Virgin Val Jensen got under is skin like no one else ever has. He wasn’t ready for her then, but things are different now. He’s grown up, he’s learned a few things, and he’s finally figured out exactly what he wants, or, rather, who he wants.

Kyle Hamilton wants a do-over, and this time he’s willing to do—or not do—whatever it takes.

Add "A is for Abstinence!"

Review: Second Star by Alyssa B. Scheinmel


Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel
Hardcover: 248 pages
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Release Date: 13 May 2014
Age Level: Young Adult
Source: eARC provided by NetGalley
Purchase: Amazon| Book Depository | Barnes and Noble | IndieBound
A twisty story about love, loss, and lies, this contemporary oceanside adventure is tinged with a touch of dark magic as it follows seventeen-year-old Wendy Darling on a search for her missing surfer brothers. Wendy’s journey leads her to a mysterious hidden cove inhabited by a tribe of young renegade surfers, most of them runaways like her brothers. Wendy is instantly drawn to the cove’s charismatic leader, Pete, but her search also points her toward Pete's nemesis, the drug-dealing Jas. Enigmatic, dangerous, and handsome, Jas pulls Wendy in even as she's falling hard for Pete. A radical reinvention of a classic, Second Star is an irresistible summer romance about two young men who have yet to grow up--and the troubled beauty trapped between them.

Growing up, one of my all-time favorite stories was Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie. Having been disappointed by a retelling before, I was a little hesitant to give another one a shot. Then I saw that Second Star was a modern retelling focused on Wendy and involving coastal beauty and surfing. I anticipated a departure from the original story, so I was prepared for just how far it would venture... mostly.

It's the End of the Month As We Know It: April 2014

Hey you guys! Um... it's been another quiet month here on the blog. Things have been really stressful at work lately and I haven't felt like doing much of anything for a while; which includes not doing a whole heck of a lot on the blog, sadly. I am earnestly trying to get back into the swing of things, though! I've already picked up more reading and I have a couple reviews just waiting for links and images, so hopefully these wrap-ups will start to be more fun again! Now it's on to the April happenings... let's get started!

Reviews Done


Aaaand it's a big fat zero in the review department. BUT, like I said, there are things coming! One thing in particular is a fun little adventure I've been participating in with my blogging friend, Jen at Literally Jen! I love it to bits and I hope that we're able to keep it going for a good long while. (All that's left is me getting my part done... ahem. Sorry Jen!)
