Blog Tour [Excerpt]: More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer

— BLURB —
Rev Fletcher is
battling the demons of his past. But with loving adoptive parents by his
side, he’s managed to keep them at bay…until he gets a letter from
his abusive father and the trauma of his childhood comes hurtling back.

Emma
Blue spends her time perfecting the computer game she built from
scratch, rather than facing her parents’ crumbling marriage. She can
solve any problem with the right code, but when an online troll’s
harassment escalates, she’s truly afraid.

When Rev and Emma meet,
they both long to lift the burden of their secrets and bond instantly
over their shared turmoil. But when their situations turn dangerous,
their trust in each other will be tested in ways they never expected.
This must-read story will once again have readers falling for Brigid
Kemmerer’s emotional storytelling.

“Rev,” Declan says. “If you want to believe
in God, fine. If you want to debate theology, fine. If you want to believe a
higher power offered you some protection, fine.
Btu every mark on your body—your father did that. Your father. You survived what he did to you. You got yourself out of
there. And you walked yourself over
here tonight. You, Rev. You did that.”
                I
can’t breathe. He’s never said these things to me. I feel as if I’m made of
stone, and Declan has struck me with a chisel, sending cracks along my surface.
                And
suddenly, I know I can’t tell him about the letter. About the e-mails. Not
tonight. He won’t understand why I sent the first e-mail. He won’t understand
why I let it go on.
                “Are
you okay?” he says.
                My
breath shakes. “Do you know the story of the Prodigal Son?”
                “Oh
my god. Rev—”
                “Do
you?”
                He
sighs. “I don’t remember the whole thing.
                So
I tell him the story.
                He
listens. When I’m done, he says, “What does that have to do with anything?”
                “Which
one am I?” I finally ask.
                “Rev—”
                I
didn’t stay with my father. So I’m obviously not the devoted son.”
                “Dude.”
                “But
is that saying that if I went back to him, he’d welcome me with open arms? Am I
supposed to be that son?”
                “Are
you listening to yourself right now?”
                “No.”
I study him. My voice is a breath away from breaking. “Help me, Dec. Which one
am I?”
                His
eyes are dark and serious. “Neither. Is that what you need me to say? You’re
neither son.”
                “But—”
                “You’re
not selfish. You wouldn’t be the son who asks for his money and leaves. And
you’re not spiteful. You don’t resent anyone, even the one person you should.”
                I
flinch again. “Don’t you understand? I have to be one or the other.”
                “No,
you don’t! You moron, there are three people in the story.”
                “You’re
neither son, Rev. If you’re anyone, you’re the man who watches his kids act
like total dicks, only to stand there with open arms and forgive them.”
                I’m
speechless. I might be gaping at him. As many times as I’ve read that parable,
I’ve never considered a third perspective. But of course it’s right there. It’s
so clear.
                Declan
pulls his pillow away from the wall, fluffs it up, and lies back down. He
yawns. “Now. Tell me about the girl.”

Book Review: The Dating Debate by Chris Cannon

BLURB:


Nina
Barnes thinks Valentine’s Day should be optional. That way single
people like her wouldn’t be subjected to kissy Cupids all over the
place. That is, until her mom moves them next door to the brooding
hottie of Greenbrier High, West Smith. He’s funny, looks amazing in a
black leather jacket, and he’s fluent in Harry Potter, but she’s not
sure he’s boyfriend material.

West isn’t sure what to
make of Nina. She’s cute and loves to read as much as he does, but she
seems to need to debate everything and she has a pathological insistence
on telling the truth. And West doesn’t exactly know how to handle that,
since his entire life is a carefully constructed secret. Dating the
girl next door could be a ton of fun, but only if Nina never finds out
the truth about his home life. It’s one secret that could bring them
together or rip them apart.

Disclaimer: This Entangled
Teen Crush book is not for anyone who has to get in the last word, but
it is for all book nerds, especially those who live next door to so
called unapproachable gorgeous guys. There’s no debating the chemistry.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. No payments made between me and the publisher.

I received an e-book copy to review this book and as far as I remember this is the second Chris Cannon book that I’ve read, the first one was the Blackmail Boyfriend (my review can be found on this link) and I honestly enjoyed reading this one. The story was not complicated, it was an easy read and it has the happy mood when you read it. 
The flow of the story is something that every reader would enjoy and I will never forget the phrase “I couldn’t date someone who didn’t read, much less someone who didn’t understand the fabulousness that was Harry Potter”, I will surely remember this book for the rest of my life because I am a Harry Potter fan as well (and bonus, my man is a Harry Potter fan too LOL). Back to my review, I love the story of Nina and West, they’re both adorable and even if they fight? I find it cute (maybe I’m weird that way). This book isn’t something that will stress you out in fact you will have a hard time to put this down because all you wanted to know what will happen to the characters. How can West accepts his family issue especially his mom? What will happen if Nina finds out the truth about West? those are just simple questions that runs in my head while reading and I was really satisfied when there were answered in this book. 
I do suggest people read this especially if they want a quick read. I am sure that they will enjoy it as much as I do and I promise it has a good ending aside from that no cliffhanger. I would love to have another Nina and West story though. They sound perfect to each other and I like Nina’s attitude! *girl power*
I’m looking forward to reading more Chris Cannon books, with those two books that I’ve read, so far I didn’t get disappointed yet. 
“In real life, if you’re unhappy, you need to work to change yourself. Having someone who cares about you helps, but it’s not a magic anti-jerk pill.”

Blog Tour: The Harper Effect by Taryn Bashford

Sixteen-year-old Harper was once a rising star on the tennis court—until her coach dropped her for being “mentally weak.” Without tennis, who is she? Her confidence at an all-time low, she secretly turns to her childhood friend, next-door neighbor Jacob—who also happens to be her sister’s very recent ex-boyfriend. If her sister finds out, it will mean a family war.

But when Harper is taken on by a new coach who wants her to train with Colt, a cold, defensive, brooding young tennis phenom, she hits the court all the harder, if only to prove Colt wrong. But as the two learn to become a team, Harper gets glimpses of the vulnerable boy beneath the surface, the boy who was deeply scarred by his family’s dark and scandalous past. The boy she could easily find herself falling for.

As she walks a fine line between Colt’s secrets, her forbidden love, and a game that demands nothing but the best, Harper must decide between her past and her future and between two boys who send her head spinning. Is the cost of winning the game is worth losing everything?

A sizzling tennis romance perfect for the summer months, The Harper Effect, will be a grand slam for fans of Kasie West, Miranda Kinneally and Simone Ekeles.

Taryn lives the typical
writer’s life with supportive husband, teen children, and characters
from her latest book insisting they help make dinner. This can be
disconcerting as Jacob is always sticking his fingers in the cheese
sauce and Harper can’t cook.

Taryn’s been an English Literature
Honours student, an advertising sales rep and a CEO of an internet
company, but writing is her first love. The Harper Effect is her debut
novel.

Book Review: Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu

BLURB

Before he was Batman, he was Bruce Wayne. A reckless boy willing to break the rules for a girl who may be his worst enemy.

The Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, and Bruce Wayne is next on their list.

One by one, the city’s elites are being executed as their mansions’ security systems turn against them, trapping them like prey. Meanwhile, Bruce is turning eighteen and about to inherit his family’s fortune, not to mention the keys to Wayne Enterprises and all the tech gadgetry his heart could ever desire. But after a run-in with the police, he’s forced to do community service at Arkham Asylum, the infamous prison that holds the city’s most brutal criminals.

Madeleine Wallace is a brilliant killer . . . and Bruce’s only hope.

In Arkham, Bruce meets Madeleine, a brilliant girl with ties to the Nightwalkers. What is she hiding? And why will she speak only to Bruce? Madeleine is the mystery Bruce must unravel. But is he getting her to divulge her secrets, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees? Bruce will walk the dark line between trust and betrayal as the Nightwalkers circle closer.

I was so excited to read this book, it is an honor to be part of this blog tour. I’ve been a fan of Batman ever since and he’s really my chosen hero in DC Comics. I promise this won’t affect my review, I’ll try my best for that. LOL. Moving on, below is my book review;

Batman: Nightwalker, I’ve heard lots of versions of Batman but I am still looking forward to every story that comes out. To be honest, I enjoyed this book, there were some slow parts on the first few pages of the book but when I got the one I wanted I just can’t stop reading. I end up finishing it at 3am in the morning LOL. I’d love to know what will happen to Bruce and Madeleine. I’d love to know who’s Madeleine. What made me read this slow on the few pages was, I am really hoping for more action but then I realized he’s still Bruce Wayne here. He’s just a newly graduated student, that was totally understandable. I enjoyed the part when he started to dig more about Madeleine. His curiosity is very Batman way. I loved how the author wrote about Bruce Wayne, it feels like watching a tv show or a movie because this reminds me of “Gotham” tv show. The book was carefully written and it was different from the usual Batman story. I liked how the author described Bruce Wayne here. And to be honest I am hoping there will be another Batman story like this one. I’d love to know how Bruce Wayne will turn in to the real Batman. 

I am really looking for more books like this. I haven’t read the other DC Icons book but I am pretty sure I will start reading them now. I really had a hard time to put this book down when I was reading it the other night. I almost forgot to have my dinner LOL. I enjoyed reading it. I’d love to recommend this book to other readers, I’m sure they will enjoy this as well. 

Bruce Wayne and Madeleine Wallace? I am rooting for those two. I am looking forward for more stories about them. Hope there will be someday.

Embyr tends her tavern while keeping her dangerous parentage a secret, until she’s attacked by a hellhound and saved by one of the most feared men in history.

For the last eight hundred years, Ryder McLennon, the infamous leader of Death’s Horsemen, has used his army to hunt the vampire who killed his wife. He’s earned a reputation as a murderous madman. But in Embyr, he discovers something that could turn the tide of battle in his favor. Her control over fire can reduce an enemy to ash and her flippant disregard of him heats his blood in ways no one else ever has. She’s beautiful, powerful and completely different from her violence-loving brethren.

Embyr finds herself thrust into a war she wants no part of, targeted by a vicious vampire because of her cooperation with Ryder. As she learns to wield her demonic powers without letting the madness of her race overcome her, she also has to fight her attraction to a killer bent on her seduction.

BLURB
It’s the same old story, really.
Good versus evil.
Heroes versus villains.
Light versus dark.
For two years, college freshman Noah Morgan lived his life somewhere in the middle, fighting darkness and light, always searching for answers to a single question:
Why, Noah, why?
The same three words keep him up at night, struggling for air while gripping a plastic cylinder containing white pills to match the white label with his name printed in ink as deep and dark as his memories—memories that turned him into a recluse.
A shut-in.
An introvert.
Luckily for him, that’s not how the girl next door sees him.

With the recovery of his family’s protective talisman, Kristan Gemeta has found hope, courage – and perhaps even the first stirrings of love.  With the aid of Heather Demitt, her band of rebels, a shipload of Northern brigands and the legendary Kentavron, he readies himself to face the Wichelord Daazna.  But neither he nor his comrades realize the strength of Daazna’s power and hatred.  The Wichelord’s first blow comes from a direction Kristan least expects, with horrific, lasting consequences.

Chapter 1
The boat slewed suddenly. “Fiskur! Tiller to port!” Olaf roared, but it was too late; they had missed the breeze and were becalmed again. One of the Northmen laughed, but was quelled by his captain’s blue-eyed stare. Olaf came aft and stood looking down at Kristan. “You’re asleep at the helm, my friend.”
A blush of shame crept up Kristan’s face. “I’m sorry, Olaf. Maybe one of the others would do a better job –”
Olaf waved the words away as if they were gnats. “Fiskur, even a man born to the sea makes a poor job of sailing when he’s tired. But I’ve been thinking, and the more I think, the more futile this seems.”
Kristan’s heart sank, but he tried to smile. “I understand. We’re grateful for the time you’ve given us –”
“Will you let me finish?” Olaf said. The impatience of his tone was tempered by his gentleness as he patted Kristan’s shoulder. “It makes no sense to keep trying for the harbor. The Daaznans, lubberly as they are, are still smart enough to recognize this ship now. Why not follow me and my ship south? From there we can bear east along Norwinn’s seacoast. A day’s sailing will take us to a shallow bay. You can offload there and travel overland to Norwinn’s castle. It’ll be a longer trip by several days, but what you lose in time you’ll make up in safety. What do you say?”
Kristan nodded. “That makes sense. Olaf, I don’t know how we can ever repay your kindness.”
“With respect, Fiskur, you’re talking nonsense. You pulled me out of the Mor when you had every right to let me drown. Now shove over and let me take the tiller; we’ll get back to camp quicker that way. Take over,” he added to his men, and in the Northmen’s capable hands the wine ship was quickly under way. The four Hogians sank to the deck, talking quietly, but Kristan was too dispirited for conversation. He leaned against the rail, looking back the way they had come.
“You’ll get there soon enough, Fiskur,” Olaf said. “Your kinsman on the throne in Norwinn will help you. You’ll march on this Wichelord Daazna, defeat him and be home again in Fandrall before you know it.”
“Home in Fandrall,” Kristan repeated. “A fortnight ago I would have told you I’d given up hope of ever seeing my home again.”
“Well, it’s the hope that keeps you going, isn’t it?” Olaf replied. His tone was gruff and wistful at the same time, and Kristan turned to look at him. The Northman’s eyes were fixed on the water ahead, but his face, usually so good-natured, had sunk into lines of sadness.
“Where’s your home, Olaf?”
The Northman sighed. “I wish I knew, Fiskur.”
“What do you mean?”
“I mean we can’t find it. It’s as simple as that. My brother Sigurd and I set out on an expedition, just the two of us with our ships and crews. We thought we’d be back with our spoils in three or four days. But we ran into a storm and lost our way.”
“How long ago was that?”
“How long?” Olaf cocked an eye at him. “It’d be about five years, now.”

Ivy Morgan hasn’t
been feeling like herself lately. Not like anyone can blame her. After
all, being held captive by a psychotic fae prince hell-bent on
permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld is bound to leave some mental
scars.
It’s more than that,
though. Something dark and insidious is spreading throughout Ivy, more powerful
than she could ever imagine… and it’s coming between her and the
man she’s fallen deeply in love with, elite Order member Ren Owens.
Ren would do
anything to keep Ivy safe. Anything. But when he makes a life
altering choice for her, the fallout of his act has far reaching consequences
that threaten to tear their lives apart.
If Ivy is going to
have any hope of surviving this, she must put aside the hurt and betrayal she feels,
and work with not only those she loves, but with an enemy she would rather kill
than ever trust. War is coming, and it soon becomes clear that what
Ivy and Ren thought they knew about the Order, themselves, and even their
enemies, has been nothing but a cluster of dangerous, deadly lies. Ivy knows
she must be more than just brave to save those she loves–and,
ultimately, to save herself.

Book Tour: Warcross by Marie Lu

Publication Date: September 12, 2017
Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers
Genre: Young Adult and Science-Fiction

BLURB

 
For the millions who log
in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. The
obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe,
some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit.
Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a
bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. But
the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been
easy. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks
into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only
to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight
sensation.

Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked
when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young
billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on
the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security
problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose,
Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune
that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a
sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. No payments made between me and the publisher.

Warcross has been on my to-read list for a while now. I’m just finishing other books for me to finally read this and then I saw the blog tour post, I immediately signed up for it! Knowing this will be my chance to read the book without excuses. I am glad that I am one of the chosen bloggers and I am honored to be part of this tour. So, thank you for this opportunity! 
The moment I started reading the book, I hardly put it down. I found myself turning the pages one after the other. I really wanted to read a book that involves IT, and I could say I finally found what I’m searching for!!! The book involves my kind of world, programming/coding, security, servers, hacking and more. The feeling while reading the book is like reading The Hunger Games all over again but it is more tech-y and more modern. Aside from that IT stuff, this book is a game! It’s like an anime and gaming in one story, anime because “Japan” and gaming because we know Warcross is a game. Anyway the story of the book is hard to ignore, all you wanted to do is finish it as soon as you can because you want to find out who’s the hacker and how Emika Chen did what she did in the book (you’re curious too aren’t you?) 
Emika Chen is a simple city girl who hardly earn money for her apartment rent and other payable.  She’s a bounty hunter at Warcross but that doesn’t help much. In the opening ceremony of Warcross where everybody are watching, Emika suddenly did a trick that shocked every one in the game. That alone is enough for Mr. Hideo Tanaka, Founder of Warcross, to notice her existence. In that moment of her life, everything changed.
*** I’m trying not to spill the details!!! This is really hard (LOL) ***  
It’s been a long time since I enjoyed reading a book this much and while writing this review, the emotions are just flowing and the thoughts keeps coming. Beautiful, intense and exciting are the three words that could describe the book. I would recommend this book to my friends, it is a MUST READ. Also, I couldn’t wait for the second book and I badly want to know if this will be a duology or a trilogy? I think that’s what readers need to find out soon.

“You don’t have to break down every detail. You just need to see the overall pattern to catch the weakness in it.”

I
write young adult novels, and have a special love for dystopian books.
Ironically, I was born in 1984. Before becoming a full-time writer, I
was an Art Director at a video game company. Now I shuffle around at
home and talk to myself a lot. 
 
I graduated from the University of
Southern California in ’06 and currently live in LA, where I spend my
time stuck on the freeways.
