Feature and Follow Friday #3

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today? Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and ayou must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to Wordpress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don't have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.





How To Become a Featured Blog?

We pick our featured blogs randomly each week from the blogs who participated the week before.

Please be sure to feature your e-mail address clearly on your blog. Either on the main blog, on a Contact page, or on an About Me page. If I can't find your email easily, I will choose a different blog to feature.

Our Feature - Reading YA Rocks

1. When did you start blogging?

I started blogging blogging about books back in November 2010. But I just started blogging at Reading YA Rocks this past September.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Everything! Can I say that? I love the community, I love getting the chance to discover books and authors I might never have discovered otherwise, and I love rambling about all things book.

3. What type of books do you mainly blog about?

Mostly YA. I do love reading PNR/UF and NA contemp but I am not so great at reviewing them.

4. What are your favorite books?

WIZARD AND GLASS by Stephen King. Hands down favorite of all time.

5. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?

"Meeting" and getting to know the amazing designer, blogger and person that is Parajunkee. :) No joke. Of course getting the chance to beta books by authors I adore and respect, getting a character named after me, getting listed in the acknowledgements of a few books, getting blurbed once or twice, and getting to meet these amazing authors has been fantastic. And making a really great friend - Jaime of Two Chicks on Books - is one of the very best things that happened because of book blogging.

Question of the Week: Share the song you can't stop listening to - Suggested byJourney Through Fiction

I love to listen rock,metal and alternative. I always enjoy while read to listen a love songs,cause that is the best suits to my favorite genre romance,romantic comedies.My list of non stop listening songs is big I will try to select one or two songs,so my choice is:

London, 1853. Despite Lady Catherine's love of fencing, she needs to stop pretending to be a boy and fraternizing with men…but not until after the fencing tournament!

Daniel, Marquess of Huntley, wants to overcome the rumors of his father's madness so that he can be embraced by London society.

When an obsessed suitor discovers Catherine's secret and threatens blackmail, the only path out of social ruin is marriage. But what kind of protection does matrimony provide when a vengeful suitor is plotting the ultimate revenge?

Author: Melissa Foster
Genre: Romance
Pages: 300 (kindle)
Published July 13th 2014 by World Literary Press
Buy this book at: Amazon

author's page:http://www.melissafoster.com/




My review:
          After few months fighting with cancer Rebecca’s mother died. Rebecca is all alone in the world she doesn’t have any siblings, caring for her mother she doesn’t have any life at all. Her boss doesn’t allow to his employees to talk with costumers and he yells to her, but she was bartender and she must talk to costumers to consoled them or just listen to them, so she quit. That day when she becomes jobless, she meets him. Pierce saw her how she beating some man and he tries to safe her from police in case that man calls them. Instantly Pierce begins to feels something about her. He saw very attractive, beautiful woman, but he saw vulnerability and sadness in her eyes. Destiny has a plan and they meet again…

      This is another great book from The Braden series from wonderful Melissa Foster. I wrote in my previous reviews about previous books from this series that I didn't expect that this book will be better then previous, but it is better to me; and I realized that every next read book by Melissa Foster is better. Fated by Love and Taken by Love these took my breath away, but this one I couldn’t put it down, I stared in my computer as dazzled. With Melissa’s books is easy to believe in love at first sight. That exactly happens-a love!

     What to say!? The plot is well done I couldn’t imagine to change something in it. I like how it flows and I like some little turns.
Characters are also as real as in previous books and made me wonder how she does it, does she writes about real persons or they are just her imagination. Rebecca is so vulnerable and in the same time so capable to back control in her life. Pierce is handsome, attentive and good person.
Highly recommended!

This book was provided by JB from Brook Cottage Books in exchange for honest review.

My rating: 5/5 (amazing book)

About Tamra Lassiter

I live outside Washington, D.C. with my wonderfully supportive husband and two daughters, one of which is approaching her teenage years. Help us all! If that isn’t enough, we have a Great Dane and an English Bulldog to keep us on our toes. It’s crazy around here and I love every minute of it!
Writing is my third career. I didn't set out to be a writer, it was just meant to be. My Mechanical Engineering degree from Virginia Tech prepared me well for my first career as an Engineer/Program Manager. My second career was in Human Resources. Long story, but I figured it out. I believe the best start for a writing career is to be a reader first and I’ve been an avid reader my whole life. I've loved to read ever since I picked up my first Nancy Drew mystery in the fourth grade. Now I love reading just about everything, but I don’t read sad books and I don’t watch sad movies either for that matter, no matter how many awards they’ve won. Life’s too short and who needs all that strife to bring us down?
Many of my words have been penned late into the evening, which explains why I’ve never viewed whatever television show you recommend to me. I would, however, love to hear your recommendations for a great read!

Sweet Temptations: The Babysitter by Dark Inferno

Genre: Adult Fiction,Erotica
Pages: 37 (kindle)
Published January 31th 2014

My review:
        Richard hates to go on parties, especially his firm’s Christmas parties. He is married with Alice and he is committed to her, honored and honest man. On this party Richard’s boss daughter Scarlett openly flirts with him in front of his wife. That night when he and his wife go home after Christmas party there was Rebecca, their neighbor and babysitter and for the first time in his life he was tempted. Richard couldn’t think in that way if Rebecca doesn’t ask him to repair her computer or if Alice doesn’t mention that Rebecca is beautiful and looks at him with admiration.

        This is small book for people who like adult fiction. Interesting is that in this about thirty pages everything is written and described well. I don’t expect explanation for d├ęcor of the party and Richard’s home considering genre and weight of the book, but is interesting and embed in content.

        I like Richard when he was faithful and honest and dedicated to his wife. I don’t like much Alice and I think that she is the reason why Richard did what he did. She is little bit rigid, jealous and demanding. Scarlett is blatant, I don’t judge her, but I couldn’t stand that kind of girls.

This book was provided by the author in exchange of honest review.
My rating 3/5(good book)

About Penny Reid

Author-Photo-Penny-Reid-300x300
SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).
By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.
