Thirst by R P Channing Cover

~ Kira Sutherland ~

After a near fatal accident (and getting cheated on by her ‘boyfriend’), and beating up the lead cheerleader (with whom the boyfriend cheated…), and being labeled as having ‘issues’ in her school because she, uhm, sees ghosts, Kira is left with two choices:

1) Continue her ‘therapy’ (where she’s told the ghost is a hallucination and also gets her legs ogled too often…)

Or

2) Go to Starkfield Academy, a boarding school for “Crazies and Convicts” (as the social media sites call them.)

She chooses the latter…

~ Cory Rand ~

Cory Rand has not had an easy life. His mother died in a car accident when he was twelve, and so did his mother’s best friend…sort of. You see, Janice made a promise to take care of Cory just before she died, and so she lingers. Undead. A ghost that watches out for him.

Brought up in an abusive home, Cory quickly falls into a life of disreputable behavior. After his third offense (which was prompted by a girl, as usual – he has a weakness) he’s left with two choices:

1) Be tried as an adult and share a cell with a guy named Bubba (he thinks…)

Or

2) Go to Starkfield Academy, which Cory is pretty sure is run by vampires. But, hey, at least he’ll get an education.

He chooses the latter…

It’s at Starkfield that Kira meets Cory Rand, a boy with an insatiable Rage who sees ghosts, too. As well as other things, other things from his past, things that confuse him, things like fire and witches and demons.

Things he’s always ignored.

Until now.

PROLOGUE

-1-
The Puppy Eyes

My life was perfect.

I had the perfect shoes and the perfect friends and I lived in the perfect house. My nails were perfect and my hair was perfect (except on Sundays, it was always windy on Sundays) and I had the perfect clothes. My lips were a perfect red and my hair perfectly straight. My eyeshadow was perfect, my hips were…okay, and my waist…well…also okay. Nothing was wrong in my life.

But then there was Jack.

Jack was a problem.

He needed to go. I mean, when you’re dead, you’re dead! I had told him this endlessly. Somehow, Jack didn’t get it. I mean, I felt sorry for the guy. Sure. Being stuck between this life and the next. But just because I found him, does that mean I needed to keep him?

I think not!

Sadly, when Jack got that look in his eyes, that weary, almost teary (if his tear-ducts worked) look, I melted. I just couldn’t send him away. Not even Jack knew where he would go after he died.

Would he, like, die? As in — dead, nada, kaput, finito, gone, no more? Bye bye, sayonara, ciao, hasta la vista baby and all that?

I couldn’t have that on my conscience. No way.

I lay on my bed, wondering what to do about him. “Jaaaaaaack,” I hollered.

“Jaaaaaaack!”

Still no answer.

“Jack!”

Jack…materialized.

His eyes rolled down to the ground. He was making those puppy eyes again. “Jack, I told you not to do that. I told you not to play on my sympathies.”

His puppy eyes became worse.

His skin was gray and, well, dead.

“Oh, brother,” I said. “I have to do something about you. If mom finds out I have another ‘imaginary friend’ — at my age — well, I’d die of embarrassment. But, like, really die. Not like you.” I wondered about this. Would I die? Was Jack a freak accident, or did all people live on like him? Think of the cemeteries…

The idea excited me somewhat.

What would you have me do, Miss Kira?

“Knock off the Miss Kira crap. I told you it’s just Kira.”

Yes, Miss Kira.

The dead. There’s just no reasoning.

“Fine, Miss Kira it is then.” Rover barked like a lunatic in the garden. No one else might be able to see Jack, but I was sure my dog could.

“I have to do something about this,” I mumbled.

Author Bio

R P Channing started writing three years ago, but never published anything even after churning out over a million words of fiction. Thirst: Blood of my Blood is the first book he dared to publish. When asked why, he said, “Because it’s the first thing I wrote that my wife actually enjoyed reading.” When not hammering away (most literally) at his keyboard, he can be found buried in a book, reading anything from romance to horror to young adult to non-fiction to comedy.

“We’re strong. We’ll survive this. We can survive anything.” – Ryan.

~*~
My Review:
Firstly I would like to give a HUGE thanks to the lovely Emily for kindly providing me with a copy of “Fears and Scars” to read and review.
I can’t remember how many times my heart broke whilst reading this, I also think I’ve over emotional because I practically cried through the whole thing…I do have the flu so I blame this for being hormonal and tanked up on medication to make me feel this way 😀 haha
I loved how the story picked up where it left off, they both have an undeniable connection, their love is so strong….or so they think….
The story truly does  captures just how deep their feelings go and how far they’re willing to go to protect one another.
Liz is finally happy and ready to plan her future but once again life throws a curve ball into the works
Ryan is desperate to love and protect Liz from any more hurt, Yet in doing so he risks losing the one thing he can’t live without, her love.
An emotional train wreck is the only way to describe the way this book makes you feel.
Two perfectly broken souls find the path of redemption together but can they resist the temptation of causing  further heartbreak along the way?
Fearing to trust, fearing to love only causes them anguish and pain and will only result in leaving scars.
“Let me chase away all your fears about us.
Let me kiss all the scars I left on your heart.”
Trust me, you will love this instalment. I’m being vague so I don’t spoil the story.
One thing for sure is, you will fall back in love with this couple.

Book Excerpt

I had only ever been with one man. And that man was my everything. Jay had way more experience in that department than I did and the kinds of experience he probably enjoyed would be far more than anything I would even know – let alone do.  Images begin flashing of the glamorous and sometimes sleazy looking woman. The remarks that Chris made about me going to him for seconds!

Oh god…

My whole body begins to tense as I feel Jays mouth kiss me gently behind my ear, surging the tremors to waves of anxiety.

“You don’t have to be scared of me. With me. I will take care of you. Always.”

Oh my.

His warm breath cascades over my skin and my body fights internally, with wanting to leap and wanting to hide. As the inner struggle continues with Jay teasing my skin with his seductive caress, a loud clatter behind me is enough to jump me from my feet.

I squeal.

About the Author:

From the earliest age I was a born storyteller.
Ask my parents and they will tell you I had a gift for making a simple event seem like an elaborate one. Purposely? No. Innocently? Yes. It was my imaginary world that initially led me to believe I wanted to be an actor. All of that role playing and living in fantasy… it was an obvious direction for me. However, becoming quite uncomfortable with the limelight quickly saw that dream diminish.
Over the years I turned my world of fantasy into stories, and eventually began writing them down. Before I knew it, ‘Cut’ had been completed.

DEBT

By Rachel Dunning

Expected Release Date:

March 2016

book-cover-debt-rachel-dunning

What’s it about?

The Debt Collector

I pay my debts, and I expect others to.

I was raised in the slums of London, I knew nothing of privilege. My father was murdered when I was seventeen. Morty figured my father’s passing meant I would automatically take on dad’s debts. I refused.

And I paid for that refusal.

So did my sister.

So now I fight. All I know how to do is fight. The best cash is in the states, so that’s where I am now. A big fish called Vito came along offering me a “favor” when I arrived.

Another debt.

I paid for that one too.

I knew Kyla Hensley would be trouble when I met her. But I wanted her. I could see through the falsehood of her wannabe-slutty clothes and her sexy legs. So I chased her.

Besides, trouble is my middle name.

Kyla Hensley

I was brought up in privilege, but I lacked everything else. My father is a business tycoon who buys and sells and doesn’t care who gets rolled over in the process.

I never knew my mother, and all I have of her is a photo with a note scrawled on the back in French saying “I’m sorry.” The only Female Figure I had growing up is my dad’s wife who is a bleach blond with seven boob jobs. We never bonded.

I drink. I party. I meet guys.

But I wasn’t always like that.

I’ve had a string of lovers in the last few years, the worst and most recent of which was Vince Somerset. My best friend Vera was dating a guy called Rory Cansoom who is the opposite of Vince in so many ways, and yet so the same.

She and I hit the road for the summer, getting away from the two college psychos and just trying to have some fun.

But there’s a funny thing about trouble, the more you run from it, the more it finds you.

Which is when I met the Debt Collector.

It was only supposed to be sex. He made that clear. I made that clear.

That’s all it was supposed to be.

I never expected to fall in love. I never expected to fall so deeply, madly, uncomfortably in love with a man who is wrong, so wrong for me.

And yet…so unbelievably right.

~*~ Blog Tour & Review ~*~ The Mother Road by Meghan Quinn

We’re celebrating the release of THE MOTHER ROAD by Meghan Quinn!
THE MOTHER ROAD by Meghan Quinn
NA Romantic Comedy
Release date: January 12, 2016
Cover Designed by: Meghan Quinn

Blurb:

Never in a million years would I have pictured myself as an axe-wielding, dragon lady, chopping up multi-colored flannel shirts into my very own plaid mulch. But here I am, chopping away my frustrations.
It all started when my brother, Paul, convinced me to go on one last family road trip across the Mother Road with him and my dad.. Just like old times, right? Wrong. What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago.
What is supposed to be a fun, family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day old beard clippings. Paul’s know-it-all attitude and Porter’s devilish charm brings me to the brink of my sanity on my seven day trek across the United States with three bearded men in a small 1980’s RV.

My Review:

Firstly I would like to give a HUGE thanks to the lovely Quinn for kindly providing me with a copy of “The Mother Road” to read and review.

I absolutely FLOVE Quinn’s work and I can’t seem to get enough of them…and of course her…I’ll even be honest in saying I have an author “Boner” for her 😀

Anyway……The Mother Road is a totally laugh-out-loud read that will rock your socks off from the very beginning.

I know my review wont be good enough to describe what I have just read, it would never give this the justice and appraise it so deservingly warrants. In all honesty this was the most hilarious book I’ve read in a long time!

The young and b-e-a-utiful Marley McMann  grew up as a tomboy on a farm in New York. Now she’s a California girl running a beauty blog.

What happens when you mix the past and the present together?

Marley gets talked into going on “one more road trip” with her brother who is due to be married soon and her father in the memory of their mother who had died before the family could complete their road trip, route 66 was the last one….oh and if you mix one helluva hunk with junk-his-in-trunk *wink wink* then we’ve got ourselves one helluva CRAZY road-trip the’re all about to embark on…..

An RV full of sexual tension, out-of-this-world pranks and some of the most heart-touching moments…..YEP, all of that in this one little book, you should totally check it out if you don’t believe me!

I laughed a lot, I also cried. I absolutely FLOVED this book.

In my opinion this is probably Quinn’s funniest book to date.

 

About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

~*~ New Release & Review ~*~ Tiny Glitches By Rebecca Chastain

Tiny Glitches

Amazon (US): http://www.amazon.com/dp/B017Z9NROY

Amazon (everywhere else): http://smarturl.it/TinyGlitches

Blurb:

Life isn’t exactly normal for Eva Parker: the stronger Eva’s emotions, the faster nearby electrical devices die. Eva can’t have a cell phone, use a computer, or be in a car for more than a few minutes without killing it. Dealing with her electricity-killing curse makes living in modern-day Los Angeles complicated enough for Eva—and that was before she was blackmailed into hiding a stolen baby elephant and partnered with Hudson, a sexy electrical engineer Eva just met.

Dodging repeated attempts on her life made by ruthless corporations hunting the elephant is easier for Eva than quelling her growing affection for Hudson, and while protecting an elephant is hard, controlling her curse is a lot harder. However, Eva must do both, because if she lets her emotions free and falls in love with Hudson, neither of them will survive.

Enchanting and quirky, Tiny Glitches fuses electrifying romance and high-voltage suspense in a rollicking adventure.

My Review:

Firstly I would like to kindly thank this lovely author for being kind enough to provide me with a copy of “Tiny Glitches” to read and review.

I love it when you come across hidden and great gems like this, and I’m grateful for the opportunity, this will be my first time in reading anything by the lovely Chastain, but I do look forward to read more from her in the future….*fingers crossed*

Living with a curse can be torture, Eva knows this first hand; especially since she has one that involves electrical currents. It seems Eva drains energy from anything electrical that she is anywhere near, so yeah, this can be a deadly curse not only to herself but those around her.

Hudson; now where to start with this guy….I was always left wondering will they, or won’t they. I’m totally rooting though….

This book definitely has a complex plot with many threads weaved into the tiny minuscules of the writing. It has mystery & suspense as Eva and Hudson try to figure out why Eva was targeted to take care of a creature from the very beginning.

With some unlikely help and a hunky Hudson, Eva just may be able to save herself and the possible downfall of society, that’s if she can stay out of trouble long enough though…..

I’m not sure on what I was expecting BUT it worked and I FLOVED it! Chastain totally changed things up. At times it was totally mind blowing, in a unexplainable confusing way, but I don’t want to say anything more otherwise I’ll end up giving parts away, and we don’t want that.

Be prepared to become totally engrossed in this beautifully written book and the reader is only left with only 1 question….. is this a series or a standalone novel

Excerpt

“I don’t understand how you haven’t found him yet.”

Gabriel could see the pain in the eyes of his former friend and felt a little helpless in the situation. He wasn’t here to tell him that they’d found Ace, in fact, they had, but Raphael refused to let them assist.

Instead of giving Lucifer fire for starting another war with Heaven, he chose to lie. A trait he wasn’t known for.

“There are bigger things to worry about.”

“You lost your daughter. How did you feel then?”

He knew the ruse was to fire him up enough to take action but Ace chose his fate, Faye did not. He sat down on the chair opposite Lucifer and relaxed. The longer he was on Purgatory, the longer he could be away from Raphael’s hideous rules.

“I apologise. I’m frustrated.”

Lucifer pushed up from his desk and paced the floor of his office. His son’s office, now his again.

“How is Nelchael handling Hell?”

“I do not know.”

“You haven’t asked for a report?”

“I don’t have time right now.”

Gabriel could see the shrug in Lucifer’s shoulder. He had never cared for the boy, sending him to Hell had been for more than just to control Hell. It was to free Lee up to be wed to someone else.

“You sent him away so you could marry her off, didn’t you?”

“It is of no concern of yours.”

“Yes, it is. She is my grandchild as well as yours. Her mother would not want her future chosen for her and nor would she.”

Lucifer chuckled. “Yes, she is much like your beloved Faye. I just wish she would recognise her powers. I have a feeling she could find her way off this plane of existence if she just tried.”

“You want that for her?”

“Perhaps she needs to know what she’s capable of before it’s too late.”

He couldn’t agree with that. Lilith only wants power, and if she was focused on Lee, then that couldn’t be a good outcome. Lee was safer hidden here on Purgatory.

“What is he doing up there?”

“Ruling as he sees fit.”

Gabriel personally couldn’t stand being anywhere near Raphael. Once, they were on the same hierarchy and now he was his boss. It just didn’t sit well with him.

“I must go, he will be wondering what is taking me so long.”

Gabriel stood to portal back to Heaven when Lucifer stopped him. “Find him. Find my son.”

Nodding, Gabriel stepped through the portal, trying to shake off the pain in Lucifer’s voice.

He jumped through, arriving in the courtyard of Heaven far too soon. This place, his home, had become a burden to return to lately. Ever since Raphael had assumed power over the entire plane.

“Did you submit your request to leave Heaven?”

Gabriel spun around to be face to face with Michael. Why was he here? He should have been keeping watch over his Soldiers on Earth.

“Leave me be.”

“Consorting with Lucifer will not earn you brownie points.”

“Raphael can get fucked.”

Michael chuckled. “Where’s this Gabriel coming from?”

He wanted to tell him that he’d always been inside but rarely had he ever had to come out. But things have changed, and he had gone through the worst feeling in the world when Faye died. He could have saved her if he hadn’t of been so stubborn. Now he could see where he had gone wrong. Impregnating Natalie had not been his mistake, letting Faye die much too young because he had been a loyal Soldier had been and he could never redeem himself for that.

He could never get his beloved daughter back.

“Gabe…I am kidding…where’s your sense of humour?”

Rolling his eyes, he moved off toward his quarters. Michael ran after him and held up a hand to halt him.

“Look…there’s a secret meeting tonight. Come and join us.”

“What for? You know Raphael knows all that happens here.”

“We have our ways…please…come tonight…”

“I’ll think about it…”

Gabriel walked off, leaving Michael standing in the courtyard alone. How could he be so foolish to think Raphael didn’t know of his secret meetings? He was buying himself a one way ticket to Hell.

He arrived at his quarters and slumped down on the bed. Lying to Lucifer had really hurt him but he couldn’t let him half ass a rescue mission for Ace when there was a chance Lilith and Astaroth couldescape to exact their revenge.

Ace could handle the pain, because he was protecting his daughter. There was no greater love.

But the idea of a secret meeting had piqued Gabriel’s curiousity.

What harm could a little peek do?

“You’re what?”

Lee felt the air rush out of her lungs and the lack of oxygen burned through her chest.

Ketara laughed and handed Lee a drink over the bar. “We weren’t together in the sense of being committed, but we had a few months of carefree sex. When he met you, he ended it with me.”

Relief came flooding in and she gratefully sipped the drink. “Arael told me carefree sex wasn’t allowed.”

“Yes, in a way. The old traditions dictate that you must only be with the one you are bonded to, but after Abbadon fell in love with Faye, he opened those laws up.”

Everyone spoke about Faye as if she were some kind of saviour and that Lee should be proud to be her daughter but she’d never even met the woman. It made her feel awkward.

“Did you love him?”

Ketara shrugged. “Sure. I mean I was pretty devastated when he left me but I moved on.”

“Why would he leave you?”

She smiled. A smile that told Lee she wasn’t really over Chael leaving. “He wanted to fully focus on his career, and well with his background, it makes sense he wanted that but we still slept together off and on…until…”

“Until what?”

“Until he met you.”

“Yeah well, he chose to leave me so I couldn’t have been that special.”

Ketara shrugged. “Maybe he had his reasons…maybe it’s not forever.”

That’s exactly what they all were saying but I didn’t want to put hope into something that wasn’t going to happen. Why live in hope when I knew I’d been dumped for a job.

“Do you know how I can get off Purgatory?”

Ketara had been wiping down the bar with a cloth, but she stopped dead when Lee asked the question.

Her eyes flitted around the room to make sure no one heard her.

“Why would you want to leave? You’re protected here.”

“I can protect myself. I have my Uncle Sam on Earth, my friends, and lots of places to hide. I don’t understand why I can’t make my own decisions.”

“Look, I’m only telling you this because I hate being told what to do too. There is someone here whocan help you but you must never tell him who told you.”

“I promise.”

Lee leant in and Ketara told her the name of her next visit. She’d never heard of them before but he lived on the outskirts of the town. A place she was forbidden to go.

But as all bad things go, it excited her. How was this mysterious man who could help her off Purgatory and toward her future away from Chael?

Lee said goodbye to Ketara and headed down the road toward the location. She kept her wits about her to make sure she wasn’t followed by anyone from the compound. It wouldn’t surprise her if they did follow her, given everything that had transpired, but it was incredibly annoying. Why had Sam left her here?

As she made her way out of the town centre and past the houses, she noticed she was heading toward

a vast expanse of nothing. The road was bordered by dead trees and the road turned into gravel with large rocks to the side. What was she doing? She was just going to trust this woman telling her there was a way off Purgatory? She probably wanted to do away with the woman Chael had left her for, was she kidding herself here?

She turned to start walking back but something stopped her. She couldn’t think of a reason to go back.

Lucifer may have been her grandfather but she felt nothing toward him, and since he had taken the top job in the compound, she’d barely seen him. Did she really have that much of a connection to anyone here on this damn plane? Why did they even call it that anyway? A plane was damn transportation, not somewhere to live. She may be one of these people, the Fallen, but she didn’t feel like it. She felt no kinship toward any of them because they all adored her. She was the daughter of their Lord and the woman who saved him from being an arrogant prick. She wasn’t Faye and she never would be. Why did everyone look at her like she was some fucking messiah?

Before she knew it, she was in the middle of a dirt road with no lights around her and it was pitch black. How was she meant to find this damn house? Looking back, she noticed she was so far from the town, she could only faintly see the lights from it.

Too late now to chicken out.

Somehow, she felt herself propel forward quickly. She looked down and saw a light shining from her hands on the ground…which her feet were not on! Shit!!!

She looked to her side, holding her hand up and there she saw it, her wings had loosed themselves again. At least it didn’t hurt anymore, that was one thing she hadn’t expected. The pain had been immense the first time but now…now they slid out and she didn’t even notice. She closed her eyes and willed them back to where they belonged. She fell to the ground, with a grunt. Her knees stung and she knew she’d opened them up with the sharp little rocks she’d fallen on.

Just fucking perfect.

She dusted her knees off the best she could and stood up. A light flashed in front of her and she saw a house just off the road a bit. It looked run down, almost as if she were walking into a really cheap horror movie.

Suck it up, princess.

Lee stepped up on the front verandah and knocked on the door. It creaked open seconds later. Gasping, she stepped back, almost tripping down the stairs again.

“Uncle Sam?”

Kate

Excerpt:

Adjustment period. That is what I’m calling this time. I have nothing else to call it. I thought this would be simple. I thought I’d be able to breeze through this and keep it as I saw it in my mind. I expected us to be able to cohabitate as roommates would. It didn’t matter to me that we were expecting a baby together. All I cared about was keeping things civil. I didn’t want to argue. I had no strength to fight because, let me tell you, having Daniel White’s baby is no cakewalk. This child is kicking my ass in the energy department. I mean I have none, at all.

I didn’t understand before why women slept so much during pregnancy. I completely understand now. Hell, I applaud any of the ones that decided to have another. This shit right here. Oh my DAMN! I feel like I should change my name to exhausted, hateful bitch. I’ve heard those words mumbled quite a bit over the last few months.

Paul is still purposely annoying the hell out of Danny. I’ll admit that I am still enjoying every part of that. I guess it’s partly because of how demanding and alpha he was in the beginning. What am I talking about? How alpha he still is? What part of the male psyche tells them that once they’ve pumped their seed into a woman and life has begun to form that they have control over the woman’s body? Yes, I’m carrying the man’s child, but I am not some prizewinning horse or champion-breeding mare that “belongs” to him. I’ve voiced that opinion on several occasions, which resulted in one of the first times that I heard the mumbled “hateful bitch”.

I think he might just regret having picked up his life and moved it here to the good ole state of Ohio. I know he has to miss the warmth that was there in Sacramento. I’ve asked him a couple times if he misses it or thinks he’ll ever return. The question usually comes when he gets on my damn nerves being his general male self. I brought it up yesterday because all of his maleness was making my pregnant ass horny as hell.

“So, do you think you’ll be going to Sacramento soon to visit your family?” I asked as he finished fixing me a plate of meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy (homemade) with corn, broccoli and homemade biscuits.

He looked at me and smirked, “Still trying to get rid of me, are you? You can let that go, beautiful. I’m here. I know there’s a lot about me that irritates the ever-living shit out of you. I chalk part of that up to the pregnancy hormones. A part of that goes to you being in a situation that you didn’t expect to be in. Then a tiny little portion is actually directed at me for my part in your being pregnant. Now that I know that I’ve gotten on your nerves today, should I be expecting a visit from your friend, Paul?”

There goes that idea.

~*~ Release Blitz ~*~ The Mother Road by Meghan Quinn

We’re celebrating the release of THE MOTHER ROAD by Meghan Quinn!
THE MOTHER ROAD by Meghan Quinn
NA Romantic Comedy
Release date: January 12, 2016
Cover Designed by: Meghan Quinn

Blurb:

Never in a million years would I have pictured myself as an axe-wielding, dragon lady, chopping up multi-colored flannel shirts into my very own plaid mulch. But here I am, chopping away my frustrations.
It all started when my brother, Paul, convinced me to go on one last family road trip across the Mother Road with him and my dad.. Just like old times, right? Wrong. What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago.
What is supposed to be a fun, family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day old beard clippings. Paul’s know-it-all attitude and Porter’s devilish charm brings me to the brink of my sanity on my seven day trek across the United States with three bearded men in a small 1980’s RV.

About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
