Goodreads’ Book Description: 

With a famous NHL player for a step-brother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation many hockey stars come with. She’s smart enough to steer clear of those hot, well-built boys with unparalleled stamina. That is until she meets the legendary team captain—Alex Waters.

Violet isn’t interested in his pretty, beat-up face, or his rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s previous misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes more than just a hot body with a face to match.

In what can only be considered a complete lapse in judgment, Violet finds out just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. But what starts out as a one-night stand, quickly turns into something more. Post-night of orgasmic magic, Alex starts to call, and text, and e-mail and send extravagant—and quirky—gifts, making him difficult to ignore, and even more difficult not to like.

The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn’t want to be part of the game.

My 2017 Resolutions: How I Plan to Make This The Best Year Yet

2016 has come and gone (thank god because what a year!) so I thought it was appropriate to post my 2017 resolutions on the first day of 2017 because is there a better time?

First thing that I’ve learned about resolutions is they have to be actually attainable. In the past I have set some pretty crazy, unrealistic goal like raise my GPA 2.0 in a semester which, for myself, is just not realistic so here are my realistic resolutions for 2017!

Every Now and Then

Every now and then I get tired
And by that I mean
I could sleep for seventeen hours
and my eyelids will still feel heavy
and I still won’t get out of bed.

Every now and then I get angry
And by that I mean
I want to smash every mirror in my house
so I can’t look at myself
and be reminded about who’ve I become.

Every now and then I get sad
And by that I mean I don’t want to wake up in the morning
because that means facing the fact that my foundation
is cracking.

Every now and then I get hurt
And by that I mean I can’t even look those who love me
in the eye because I don’t want to see the worry I’m causing them.

But every now and then I get better.

Every now and then I get up
And by that I mean
I stand taller and stronger.

Every now and then I remember I have warriors around me
and by that I mean
I have strong women who show me that you can walk through hell
and still have wings.

Every now and then I pick myself up
and stop wishing for death
instead I wish for another day to remind myself
that I am alive and well and breathing.

Every now and then I get a little broken
but I continue to pick myself up again and again
and tell myself that there are so many wonderful things
and that even when things hurt so bad,

there are beautiful things to be seen,
there are beautiful people to meet,
there are beautiful places to see.

Every now and then I simply need to remind myself
that even when times are tough,
I am strong and no one,
not even the voices in my head,
can take that away from me.

#5ReasonsWhy: You Should Read ROOMHATE by PENELOPE WARD

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a post about a book I’ve personally loved. I haven’t felt this strongly about a book in such a long time but ROOMHATE has changed everything to the point that if I could go back and re-write my Top Ten Reads of 2016, this would be on that list somewhere because it has become a top read for me!


Goodreads’ Book Description: Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?

Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.

When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.

The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.

The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.

I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.

The worst part? He didn’t come alone.

I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.

The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.

Author’s note – RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
