#Win Tough Luck Hero by Maisey Yates (US)

Q&A with Maisey Yates – Tough Luck Hero

1. How much research goes into your books? I’m a big believer in Google As Needed. If I need to know something, I check into it, but I don’t do too much in depth research because then I feel like the temptation is to put too much information into the story, and it has the danger of overshadowing the romance. 

2.     What’s your favorite love story? Fiction or non-fiction. That’s an incredibly tough question. Right now I think my favorite romance is Seduce Me at Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas. 

3.     What are some of your favorites words and why? I think the word vole has great comedic properties. It’s both an adorable mammal and an unexpected word choice. And yes, I find reasons to use it in books often. 

4.     What are you working on now? What is your next project? Right now I’m wrapping up my next Copper Ridge Desire, then I’m moving on to another full length Copper Ridge novel. The hero in this one is a single dad, and I’m excited to write that since it’s something I haven’t done in this series yet. 

5.     Any fun summer plans? I’ll be at RWA in San Diego in July, and on the way there I’m stopping at Disneyland which is definitely MY happiest place on earth. I can’t wait!


Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffeemaker is a true example of her pioneer spirit. In 2009, at the age of twenty-three, Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily-ever-afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth, and light, sexy contemporary romances set practically in her backyard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world. For more information on Maisey, visit her website at MaiseyYates.com.


Praise for Maisey Yates

 “Yates has multifaceted character development and complexly realistic characters down pat…Yates not only brings her characters to life, she also brings ranching and farm living to life in a big and realistic manner.”
—Goodreads Reviews

“Once again Yates has created a quick, fun read that really packs a punch. It’s a fantastic read as a standalone and great addition to Copper Ridge.” 
—Amazon Reviews

“The main characters’ sarcastically fun repartee and super-hot encounters keep things interesting!
—RT Book Reviews


Ranching heir Colton West knew his wedding would be the talk of the town. But he didn't expect to get left at the altar—or to escape on the next flight to Vegas with Lydia Carpenter, the woman who gets under his skin like no one else. The only thing crazier than honeymooning with Lydia is waking up married to her. So why does he find himself entertaining his new wife's desire to stay married—and fantasizing about a real wedding night?
As Copper Ridge's prospective mayor, Lydia can't risk a divorce scandal so close to election time. But pretending to be blissfully in love with her new husband is more confusing than she'd thought. For a man who's always rubbed her the wrong way, Colton suddenly seems to know exactly what to do with his hands. And his lips. Now Lydia's wildest mistake could turn out to be her luckiest move, if they're both willing to take the ultimate gamble…

Harlequin; June 28, 2016
$7.99 U.S.; 384 Pages
ISBN-978-0-373-78981-8

Colton West couldn’t remember the last time he had gotten blackout drunk. Maybe college? Maybe. It was hard to say if in those scenarios he had passed out because of the alcohol or because they were still awake at five in the morning after some ridiculous party.
Though at none of those ridiculous parties had he married anyone.
And, judging by the messages overflowing his phone, he had gotten married last night.
Which wouldn’t be that weird since yesterday was supposed to be his wedding day. The weird part about it was that he had married a bridesmaid. Not the bride.
And not just any bridesmaid.
Lydia Carpenter.
There were three other bridesmaids. All of whom he was more likely to get drunk and marry in Vegas than Lydia. Or at least, he would have thought so if asked prior to his hasty Vegas marriage.
Actually, had he been asked prior to his hasty  Vegas marriage he would have said there was no way on earth he would ever get drunk and marry anyone spur of the moment. He was not a spur-of-the-moment kind of guy. Colton was a planner. Colton had never set one foot out of line.
After his older brother had taken off and completely abandoned the family, it had been up to Colton to establish himself as the likely heir to his father’s business. It had been up to him to be the son his father needed. And he had taken that duty very seriously.
Hell, the wedding yesterday was a prime example of that.
The wedding that had originally been scheduled, not the wedding that had ultimately taken place.
This was a nightmare. Unacceptable in every way.
So take it back.
It was the only thing to do. Unlike his brother, who had run when he didn’t want to deal with his life, and unlike his father, who had buried his mistakes, Colton would meet his head-on.
He looked up from his phone at his scowling—he winced—wife.
“Well, I can honestly say this is the last situation I ever expected to find myself in,” he said.
“No way,” she said. “You do not get to look this annoyed about the situation. This is your fault.”
How is this my fault?”
“Granted my memory is questionable, but if I remember right, we were drinking in Ace’s. Then you were the one who suggested we go somewhere. You were the one who said you had the time off and wanted an escape. You are the one that facilitated the car to take us to the airport and said we needed to get a nonstop flight to somewhere that would be fun. And lo, we boarded a plane to Vegas.”
“At no point did you say no,” he said, wishing he could remember the events a little bit clearer. Maybe she had been hesitant. Maybe she had said no and he’d talked her into it.
But he was going to bluff his way straight through, dammit.
She folded her arms across her chest, crinkling the ridiculous lavender fabric of the bridesmaid dress she was wearing. One of Natalie’s choices. And honestly, he hadn’t cared. Not about the entire spectacle that she had put together with his mother from top to bottom. It hadn’t concerned him at all. The only thing that mattered to him was that Natalie was an appropriate choice. She’d been raised in a family like his. Highly visible in the community, with a lot of concern given to appearances. There were expectations placed on her as the daughter of the long-term mayor, and they matched the expectations placed on him. Plus, he was attracted to her. He liked her. A lot.
He’d liked her more before the wedding plans had started to get really intense. But, ultimately he had been confident in her as his choice of bride. So, the wedding had seemed like an incidental detail to him. Something that would have to take place to appease his mother, Natalie’s family and the populace of Copper Ridge, before he could get on with his life.
He hadn’t paid attention to things like bridesmaid dresses. And now he wondered if he hadn’t paid enough attention to Natalie, either. Well, obviously, since she had left him standing there at the altar without anything other than a quick apology text.
Actually, it hadn’t even really been an apology.
One line, obliterating a relationship that he had spent two years building. A relationship that was supposed to shore up the foundation of his life. And she’d just knocked it all down.

I can’t do this.

That was all she’d said. And he didn’t even get the message until later, after the ceremony that wasn’t. When he was already at Aces ordering the kind of hard liquor he never, ever drank in a public space. And definitely not to excess. Then Lydia had shown up.
Fast-forward a little bit—through scenes he couldn’t even remember—and here they were.

The Sunlight Pilgrims by Jenni Fagan (46) #EarlyReview

It's November of 2020, and the world is freezing over. Each day colder than the last. There's snow in Israel, the Thames is overflowing, and an iceberg separated from the Fjords in Norway is expected to drift just off the coast of Scotland. As ice water melts into the Atlantic, frenzied London residents evacuate by the thousands for warmer temperatures down south. But not Dylan. Grieving and ready to build life anew, he heads north to bury his mother's and grandmother's ashes on the Scottish islands where they once lived. 

Hundreds of miles away, twelve-year-old Estella and her survivalist mother, Constance, scrape by in the snowy, mountainous Highlands, preparing for a record-breaking winter. Living out of a caravan, they spend their days digging through landfills, searching for anything with restorative and trading value. When Dylan arrives in their caravan park in the middle of the night, life changes course for Estella and Constance. Though the weather worsens, his presence brings a new light to daily life, and when the ultimate disaster finally strikes, they'll all be ready. 

Written in incandescent, dazzling prose, The Sunlight Pilgrims is a visionary story of courage and resilience in the midst of nature's most violent hour; by turns an homage to the portentous beauty of our natural world, and to just how strong we can be, if the will and the hope is there, to survive its worst.

My review for Panopticon

REVIEW:
Not for me.

I am so sad that this book flopped for me. I really wanted to like it... I do love dystopian reads, but I felt so confused by most of it.
So much detail, and yet I often felt like the pieces went nowhere. I was waiting for the moment when I would be like, okay, wow, but it didn't come.  I was confused by Dylan and Constance more than anyone in the book and I thought it was supposed to be centered around Stella.
Was I not supposed to get it? Did I miss something?
I don't know.
Yup, this book just was not for me. But like so many other books that I didn't like and the rest of the world loved, don't knock it till you try it.

REVIEW:
So funny!
This movie really warmed my heart as well. Which I wasn't expecting at all.
With the same crazy cast as the first film, with a couple added actors, this movie is an hour and a half of pure entertainment. There were a lot of laughs, and a couple of tearjerker moments too.
I hope they make another movie in a few years when it's Nia's daughters' turn to marry. That would be neat.
This is a great movie for a date night, though I watched it solo. I know so many of you will like it too though.

4/5

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce (45)

Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning a letter arrives, addressed to Harold in a shaky scrawl, from a woman he hasn’t heard from in twenty years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. But before Harold mails off a quick reply, a chance encounter convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person. In his yachting shoes and light coat, Harold Fry embarks on an urgent quest. Determined to walk six hundred miles to the hospice, Harold believes that as long as he walks, Queenie will live. A novel of charm, humor, and profound insight into the thoughts and feelings we all bury deep within our hearts, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry introduces Rachel Joyce as a wise—and utterly irresistible—storyteller.

She currently lives in Gloucestershire with her family and is at work on her second novel.


REVIEW:
Quite a story!
I can definitely see why this book is a favorite for many. Told with many intricacies, that have you mind-bent at times.
Was the journey Harold took crazy? You're damn skippy. Was it worth it? It definitely was. Even if it stopped being about what it was in the first place.
I got nothing but mad love for Harold and Maureen. You think one thing and are going to be totally wrong... it is what it is... but you know this is a great thing, because what you're rooting for is even better than expected!
Yeah, all I can say is, if you haven't read it. You really need to. Seriously.

The Do-Over #Movie

Two down-on-their-luck guys decide to fake their own deaths and start over with new identities, only to find the people they're pretending to be are in even deeper trouble. The movie is a Netflix original film.


AVAILABLE NOW ON NETFLIX!

Rated R
127 minutes


REVIEW:
Funny!
Like, laugh-out-loud funny. I knew these two would make me laugh, and they did. I appreciated that Adam Sandler didn't use any immature voices, and David Spade is always a riot. I admit, I was surprised by his tame role though. Still, we laughed and laughed some more.
Now, I couldn't actually find a rating for it, but rated it R. The content in it is somewhat racy and definitely suited for an older audience.
A good hour and a half spent.


3.5/5
