COYER (Clean Out Your E-Reader)

Today, my long time friend Deb suggested that I again try to connect with other bloggers by doing a reading challenge.  She told me she had signed up for two.  I asked what two she had signed up for, and truth be told I don’t remember the other one she told me.

I did however check out COYER immediately.  I was a 100% failure at doing the Dewey Read-a-thon that I’m not confident I can succeed with COYER, but the concept sounds like I can be more of a participant and hopefully be somewhat successful.

I hope that others who see this will decide to check it out and perhaps think this is a great way to clean out their own e-reader or IPod as this year they’re allowing audio books as well.   I’m sharing the link and hopefully you’ll participate!


Because Reading is better than real life


IT’S ONLY LOVE by Marie Force is the latest in her Green Mountain series. I received a gifted copy for review. IT’S ONLY LOVE is the story of Ella Abbott and Gavin Guthrie. Ella has been in love with Gavin for a very long time, but Gavin has been suffering through the loss of his brother Caleb who was killed in the Iraqi War and was once married to Ella’s sister Hannah.

While Hannah has finally managed to move through the grieving process and start life anew, Gavin is stuck unable to get through. Ella believes she can help him, but until he’s ready to receive her help her love is unrequited. Yes, Ella has dated, but no one can compare to the idea of Gavin in her mind, and when he finally requires her help she is more than ready to rush to his rescue.

Her family is naturally concerned that she is ready to lay her heart on the line, and that Gavin might not be worthy of it. Ella hears the warnings, but is confident that all will work out in the end.

Is Gavin worthy? Will he finally be able to move his grieving forward and be ready to embrace his chance at happiness? I can’t tell you that. You’ll have to read IT’S ONLY LOVE for yourself to find out.

I will however tell you that this book is truly the story of Ella and Gavin. The other residents of Butler that we’ve come to know and love do make appearances, but I would consider them more like cameos than even secondary tales. Many of Ms. Force’s Green Mountain readers love Fred the Moose, and he does appear, but his scenes feel almost like an afterthought, as though she totally forgot readers would want to know that he was alive and well, and still as enamored of Cameron as always.

Overall IT’S ONLY LOVE is required reading for any fan of Marie Force, and if the reader in your life has yet to discover Ms. Force, I suggest you remedy that fairly quickly!

We got to the park and Charlie took off to warm up with his team. Jared grabbed our chairs from the back, while I collected our water bottles and Tank’s leash. We found a spot about mid-field and within minutes the boys were chasing the black and white ball around.

Charlie was amazing. He was faster than the other boys, and his coordination, flicking the ball between the other players, was shocking. I couldn’t take my eyes off of him.

“Go Charlie!” I shouted.

He grinned at me and took off down the field.

The mom next to us leaded over. “Are you Charlie’s mother?”

“Yes.” I nodded, glancing her way before focusing on the game again.

“He’s a great player.” She held out her hand. “I’m Heather, Brian’s mom.”

I stared at her hand and finally reached out to take it. “Nice to meet you. I’m Ms… Taryn. I’m Taryn.”

She released my hand with no idea how lucky she’d been. Completely unharmed. Maybe I really was getting the power under control.

“I’ve never seen you at the games before.”

I tensed. “I usually work on Saturdays.”

“Or practices.”

“I work late.”

Jared leaned forward. “Charlie’s lucky his mom sacrifices so much so he can play sports.”

Heather gave Jared a long look and smiled. “And you are?”

“I’m Jared.” He took my hand lacing our fingers together. “Taryn’s boyfriend.”

I blinked and did my best to hide my shock behind a cool smile. “Charlie’s not the only one who’s lucky.”

Heather nodded. “I can see that.”

Brian’s Mom focused on the game again. I turned to face Jared and mouthed the word, “Boyfriend?”

He chuckled and leaned in. “Sounded better than telling her I’m your carpenter.” I nodded, wishing I hadn’t wanted it to be true. He squeezed my hand and came close to whisper, “There’s no one else in my life, in case you’re wondering.”

Without thinking, I raised our joined hands and kissed the back of his. He watched my every move, desire shining in his eyes. I swallowed hard and broke eye contact. He could make me hot with just a look. How could this ever work?

I concentrated on Charlie’s game, counting backwards and gradually the fire cooled. Jared tightened his hold on my hand, drawing my attention again. Was I hurting him? His smile melted away my worries. My heart pounded as I lost myself in his bright hazel eyes.

“You stopped it. Your hand heated up, but you pulled it back.”

I nodded. He made me feel like a freaking superhero.
