The Things We Can't Change: Part Two ~ Review

The Things We Can't Change 
Part Two: The Struggle
  August 24, 2013

Evie and Zeke just want to forget.

Now that her secret is out and Tony is unable to come near her, Evie just wants to heal and move on. But with Tony’s last words embedded in her brain and guilt dominating her mind, she’s finding it hard to release the hold Tony still seems to have over her. She’s getting worse, sinking deeper, and no one seems able to help.

Zeke wants to forget it all and not feel a thing. After Cindy’s accident, his resolve to care for nothing and no one is stronger than ever. Desperate to separate himself and escape feeling, he’s thrown himself into the bad crowd he always used to avoid sinking into, doing more smoking and drinking and graffiti than ever. But nothing seems to stop the nightmares.

When Zeke goes too far and is caught, Evie’s dad is able to step in and offer a deal to repay Zeke for saving Evie; go to juvie, or work all summer for the Parkers. Seeing anything as better than juvie, Zeke agrees to work for the Parkers. What he didn’t count on was the close proximity to Evie, the only person who seems to give him feelings that he’s not sure he wants to push away. What Evie didn’t count on was Zeke still being the only person aside from her dad who makes her feel safe.

 MORE more MORE Please!!!!, August 27, 2013

I am soooo loving this series, & just can't get over it! Just so you know ... It's a BIG deal for a book to bring me to tears, & still have me coming back for more. Scratch that ... BEGGING FOR MORE! I truly think every teen should be encouraged to read this series! Kassandra has done a magnificent job in portraying this topic without going into the darkest of dark overload. I also love the note from the author at the back. It is always nice to hear how & why they feel the way they do about their stories.
FYI ~ This story is based on a very sensitive subject, & does tug those heart strings like no other ... BUT it is Soooooooooo Worth Reading! And YES this coming from the chick who really does not care to read about abuse & the emotional turmoil that many deal with on a regular basis. Yet, I still give this 5 Stars (although I would give it many more if it was allowed!)

About this author:
Welcome :]
Third person feels.... impersonal, so lezz just keep it real ;]

My name is Kassandra, one of the few rare gems who spell the name with a K. I like to read, write, and lay in the sun. Since I live in sunny Florida, I'm usually doing all three at once. I dream of returning to my hometown, Columbus, Ohio, but in the meantime I make do with placing most of my stories there. I come from a huge family dominated with girls and have a dopey, mostly-Black-Lab dog named Phineas. I tend to like fictional men better than real ones, and sometimes it's quite the hassle trying to keep up with all my book-relationships ;] Someday, though, I'm sure true love will strike me down, but until then, I'll share all my book boyfriends with you.

They can be found in all my novels, and I hope I speak the truth when I say I have a little something for everyone; mystery, romance, paranormal, real-life, drama and epicness. You can find information about my past, present, and forthcoming books in both my blog and Facebook links. I absolutely love to hear from readers, so be sure to drop me a line so I can thank you personally.

I'll leave you to read now, but welcome to my world; a place where true love exists, everyone gets a happy ending, magic is real, God is love, and it's perfectly acceptable to skip sleep, food, and company in order to finish that last chapter.

Oh, and the men are extremely good looking ;]
~ Kassandra

Cover Reveal ~ Finding Forever

Finding Forever by Melisa M. Hamling

~ Releases August 30, 2013 ~
Cover designed by Cora Graphics.
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult

"Through the splinters of glass, I see his face, the one who has this hold on me, on my soul, and I know he holds the key to something I have yet to learn."

Be careful what you wish for, you may just get it. Morgan Master’s is about to find out that what you wish for doesn’t come in a perfect little package.

Plummeting off the side of the mountain wasn’t the escape Morgan had planned. Or was it? Disconnected from who she was, where she came from, Morgan knows she’s in a hot mess when the lines blur between two worlds. What is real and what is imagined? Her inner struggle to find herself and to learn the truth, leads her into the arms of Ben, the perfect little package she once wished for, but doesn’t remember it.

Ben is Morgan’s solace, her guide through her state of confusion, offering comfort and love to degrees she is certain she has never known before. Longing to stay in the heavenly bliss, something keeps pulling her back, a little at a time.

When Morgan’s world crumbles, she endures weeks of heartbreak. She must decide between this life, or go in search of the unknown, in search of reestablishing the love she had for the man who helped her survive. What must she sacrifice to find him? Does he really exist? What will she uncover when she goes in search of Finding Forever?

About the Author:
Melisa M. Hamling

I grew up in Colorado and moved to Nebraska in the latter half of my teen years, where I've remained. I have a great family and my father is James Dean. Yep! The James Dean. Okay in name only, but I still love to say it. I have the best husband ever! He's not afraid to do the laundry, or the dishes, and dang. He's had to survive four females and a whole lot of hormones. Poor guy! We have three beautiful daughters, and our only sons, Robby and Bentley, are of course, cats. They refuse to acknowledge their furry background, and so continue to live as humanly as possible.

Most of my work experience has been in healthcare giving me the opportunity to work with a variety of people, ranging from newborn to elderly. My true passion is writing. I'm captivated by stories that delve into facets of the human behavior: affliction, fidelity, passion, betrayal, and redemption. I prefer to take my characters through a physical journey where they learn something about themselves or take them to new and exciting places, but there is always romance involved.

Hidden Wings ~ Review

Hidden Wings
What happens when Darkness and Light collide?
Seventeen is a life changing age for Emma Wise. As her family's sole survivor in a car crash, she is left with a broken arm, and a few scrapes and bruises. But these are only outward marks; inside, her heart is broken and the pieces scattered. Whisked away to Alaska, to an aunt she's never met, Emma starts over. Secrets unveil themselves and now...she doesn't even know who or what she is. A centuries old prophecy places Emma in the heart of danger. Creatures of horrifying and evil proportions are after her, and it will take Emma, her aunt, and six, gorgeously, captivating Guardians to keep her safe. But, if she can survive until her eighteenth birthday... things will change.
Recommended for young adult readers. The Hidden Wings series is a YA Paranormal / Fantasy with elements of romance, suspense, mystery, horror, and humor. 

My Review:
 5 Stars
I Hidden Wings! , March 6th, 2013
If you're looking for a story that will have you begging for more then Hidden Wings is a terrific choice! This is definitely no typical "paranormal romance". You name it & this story's got it. It's action packed & full of life; drama, love, terror, excitement, pain, demons, angels (fallen angels too)...
Poor Emma had no idea what was about to become of he...r life .... or at least what she believed it to be.
Yet even as terrifying as some of it proves to be she pushes on refusing to take the easy route. The next book in this series can NOT come fast enough! She made sure with her ending that we'd be begging for More, More, More!!!
And BTW...I'd have Kade whisk me away any day!
