Still on Hiatus...


Hi Everyone!

Long time no talk...er blog. 

A lot has happened since I told all of you that I was going on hiatus...

I've been working a ton of hours at Olive Garden and absolutely love the time I spend there. While the job of a server is quite taxing on the body, I've become accustomed to the daily grind. I love going into work knowing that it will be completely different from the day before. However, it is stressful and sometimes I find myself wanting to pull my hair out...or just sit for five minutes to catch my breath.

I moved into my new apartment! Scratch that... I'm still moving into my new apartment. It's been about a month now and I'm still not completely moved in. My daybed is still in 4 pieces and needs to be put together. As you can tell I'm the absolute worst procrastinator ever. I actually attempted to put it together today, but for whatever reason some of the pieces wouldn't line up so I have to get my mom to help me.

I graduated from college!!! Yes, I am officially a graduate of West Virginia University's Exercise Physiology program. I've done nothing with my degree and don't plan on using it for a while. I'm actually contemplating going back to school and getting my masters in psychology because it's kind of intriguing and I already think everyone I know is a basket case so why not.

Best of all.... I started reading again!!! Since Thursday night I've read 6 books and started a ton of others. I'm happy to be reading again and I will be back soon. Yes... I WILL BE BACK SOON!! I've had a few authors contact me recently about reading and reviewing their books so sometime next month I will start posting again. It won't be anywhere near the volume I did last year, but I will be posting again. I want to enjoy reading and if I'm reviewing every book I read, I won't be happy. I like reading for me and while I will still review them, you may not get to see them all. 

So this is me telling you I'll be back soon. I've missed you! xoxo


P.S. The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup!!! I'm so excited for my home team!!!

Between Friends by Amanda Cowen
178 pages
$0.99 on Amazon for Kindle.




The only way to have a friend is to be one…especially between the sheets…
When neurotically challenged and unlucky in love Megan Daniels, is propositioned by her lifelong friend Ben Romano with a coin toss (heads, they sleep together, tails they don’t) the night before they are about to attend a destination wedding, she drunkenly accepts his challenge.

But when Megan wakes up the next morning with a bad hang-over and Ben in her bed, she is more than mortified. It isn’t until the tropical heat begins to ignite emotions Megan never ever believed she could possibly have, that she starts to question if risking their friendship is the answer to finding true love.




     I catch a glimpse of the door to my villa and stop dead in my tracks. Ben is sitting on the floor resting his elbows on his knees. He startles when he hears me and jerks his head in my direction. A soft worry is reflected in his eyes, mixed with a sense of desperation. He quickly rises to his feet as I briskly walk up to my door and push past him.

     “We need to talk.” He says with small quiver in his voice.

     I shove in my key card, push open the door, and leave Ben outside in the hot and humid air. When I don’t respond, he wedges himself in the doorframe as I flick on the lights.

     “What do you want Ben?” I sigh, and whip around to face him.

     Ben’s closes his eyes and takes a deep breath, “Fuck Megan, I can’t take it any more.”

     Before I can even respond, he slams me up against the wall and presses his wonderfully soft lips up against mine. Our kissing is strong, passionate, and if I have ever thought for one second that anyone in my past was a good kisser, I am mistaken. I am completely lost in Ben. He grabs the back of my neck with one hand, and moves the other over the strap of my dress and slips it off my shoulder to expose my bra. I feel myself wanting to resist him, wanting to still hate him for how he acted today, but I can’t bring myself to do it. Instead, I surrender to his touch and what I have been craving since the last time, and find myself giving into Ben.
