BLURB
There’s no emotion
greater than fear.


No ache greater
than grief.


No sound greater
than silence.


***

I’m grateful he
showed up on my doorstep,
pissed off and angry at the world.

If he hadn’t, I
wouldn’t be here.

And I don’t just
mean here on this journey with him.

I mean here, in
this world.

*

I wonder what
events in all our lives—hers included—are The Turning Points? The points where
we all determine that the fear of our pasts and the uncertainty of our futures
are greater than our need for happiness.

Here.

Now.

While time and
everything around us stands unmoving… who’s to say we can’t have it all?

***

We wanted it all.

We wanted it with
each other.


We thrived on the
chaos we created.


And ignored the
Mayhem that ensued.


Because falling in
love was easy.


But sometimes, love
isn’t enough.

THE MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN SHOW comes to NETFLIX




THE MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN SHOW -- DreamWorks Animation Television’s all-new original series starring Chris Parnell as Mr. Peabody and Max Charles as Sherman -- debuts exclusively on Netflix Friday, October 9th

Broadcasting in front of a live studio audience from their swanky NYC apartment, meet late night's newest talk show hosts, Mr. Peabody (R) and Sherman. Catch them in the all-new original series "The Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show," debuting exclusively on Netflix October 9.
From DreamWorks Animation Television comes an all-new original series—THE MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN SHOW—starring Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live30 RockRick & Morty) as Mr. Peabody and Max Charles (The Amazing Spider-ManThe Strain) as Sherman.
Debuting exclusively on Netflix October 9, THE MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN SHOW will turn the late night world upside down. Hosted by the world’s smartest dog, Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman, the high-energy talk show is broadcast in front of a live studio audience from their swanky New York City penthouse. In each episode the co-hosts interview a menagerie of historical figures, like George Washington and Edgar Allen Poe, and bring musical guests to the stage, all while nosey neighbors continuously interfere with their own agendas.

This modern take on the animated classic pairing not only brings the characters to the 21st century, but places them in a setting not unlike the after-midnight talk shows of the 60s – but one for families to enjoy together.  Also in every episode, Peabody’s WABAC machine transports the talk show hosts and viewers on their Time Travel Adventures to the days of history’s most prominent figures, who are bent on accomplishing anything but what they’re known for – if not for a little help from Peabody.  Historical figures Mr. Peabody and Sherman visit in the first several episodes include Napoleon, Cleopatra, Mozart, and Marco Polo.  Peabody also uses the WABAC to bring important historical figures back to their modern day talk show set to bring history alive through hilarious segments and musical numbers.

With a comic pace that will keep audiences laughing at one ridiculous gag to the next, THE MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN SHOW takes a sideward look at both world history and television through comedy built for kids and their families.


THE MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN SHOW is DreamWorks Animation Television’s seventh show to debut following the launch of their original prehistoric adventure DINOTRUX this past August. Quickly becoming a leader in producing high-quality television series for families around the world, DreamWorks Animation Television utilizes the talents of its award-winning cast of characters, storytellers and artists to produce hit shows like DRAGONS: RACE TO THE EDGEALL HAIL KING JULIEN, and THE ADVENTURES OF PUSS IN BOOTS.

Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom debuts Oct 5th on NickJr!



Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, a magical animated series for preschoolers from the creators of children’s TV sensation Peppa Pig, will make its U.S. debut on Nick Jr. on Monday, October 5, at 6:30pm!


Preschoolers join Holly, a young fairy princess whose magic doesn’t always go according to plan, and her best friend Ben Elf, who doesn’t have wings and doesn’t do magic (but is extremely good at making things!), as they embark on exciting adventures throughout the Little Kingdom and work together to fix magical mishaps all along the way.


The series premiere will also be available online at NickJr.com and on the Nick Jr. App starting Tuesday, October 6, along with special video clips from the show. Additional episodes of the charming new series will continue to roll out on Nick Jr. this fall.

CLICHES
She can't stand them.
Hates them.
Refuses to be one.
But...

Tessa Brooks is strong-willed, sassy, and determined, on the brink of dominating in the testosterone-fueled sport of horse racing. She’s spent her life avoiding the norm, staying true to herself to achieve her ultimate goals.

Her relationship with Jace Hitchen, her brother's best friend, just might be the biggest cliche of all. Over the years, he’s been her protector, her annoyance, her confidante, her crush. But giving in to what she's really wanted for the last ten years could be the very thing that destroys everything she's worked for and wanted. Can Tessa achieve her dreams for the future, but still hold on to the past?

Love Me Like That by Renee Kennedy {cover reveal}







It’s a battle between her head and her heart.

Bailey Reynolds never thought she would ever in her life have to choose between someone that will give her everything she wants in life and someone that makes her feel like she is everything in his life. How does this southern spitfire choose between what her heart wants versus what her head tells her she wants? 

Hendrix~

Can make her dreams come true

Reaches in the sky and buys any star she desires

Wants to set up a perfect life for her with everything she needs or could want

But every so often can't dry her tears

He's not perfect but he was until ~ CASH

Cash~

Sets her world on fire.

He is everything her heart wants but, not necessarily what her head wants.

He creates his own stars and catches all her tears.

But is love enough?

Sometimes life is full of hard choices but that is when the biggest blessing take root.





Renee Kennedy grew up in Decatur, AL and has been married to her high school sweet heart for 23 years. She currently lives in the Houston, TX area with her husband Jason, her son Braxton, and one very spoiled Yorkie, Chico. She also has one son that is serving our Country in the military, Brett.

She loves living in Texas but she’ll always be a Bama girl and that is where her heart remains. Renee has always been an avid reader but never dreamed of writing a book, until reminiscing about her grandparent’s love story, Bailey’s story popped into her head. Her grandparents played a significant role in her life growing up, so sharing a little piece of them with the world, helps keep them alive in her heart.

When she is not reading or writing she loves to cook and try out new recipes. You can often find her hanging out with her family and friends or stalking her own favorite authors.

Chico, her mini Yorkie, runs Renee's house and her so his every need must be catered too, after all he is her 3rd baby.

The End Game by Kate McCarthy {release boost}



















Title: The End Game


Author: Kate McCarthy








 Release Date: September 8, 2015




Blurb


“Professional athletes are
pillars of their respective communities. They are heroes in the eyes of boys
and girls and are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that positively
represents their community.”


The public loves a good scandal. Seeing someone
fall from the pinnacle of success makes a great headline. No one knows that
better than I do. What started out as a promising career in college football,
spiraled into scandal and shame.


But being a hero is easier said then done.
Especially when there are those who expected to see the great Brody Madden
fail. I craved nothing except being the best—willing to do anything to prove
them wrong. But I went too far, and I tried too hard, and it broke me.


“At the time of going to print,
Jordan Elliott was unavailable for comment.”


I met Brody Madden in my senior year of college. An
Australian native on an international scholarship, I was the female soccer
sensation with stars in her eyes and no room for a hotshot wide receiver with a
chip on his shoulder.


But a heart bursting with ambition and a driving
fire to succeed isn’t made of stone. I became his strength, his obsession, and
the greatest love of his life. Only I wasn’t there when he needed me most.

This is a story about love and a game that takes
everything. Where the path to glory is paved with sacrifice. Where pressure
makes you, or breaks you, and triumph is born in the ashes of failure. Where
two people’s end game will change everything.

Excerpt


Shutting the door, I walk up the slight incline behind Brody. He sits down at the top of the crest and pats the grassy spot beside him.

“You didn’t mention this part when you explained our date.”

“I can’t give away all my secrets now, can I?”

The grass is a thick blanket on the ground and when I stretch out flat, the rich, earthy scent of soil sweeps over me. My eyes lift to the sky and that’s when I get it. It’s perfectly clear and millions of stars are scattered diamonds twinkling above us—bright and magical.

“Besides,” Brody adds as he lies down beside me and sweeps out his arm, encompassing all of it. “How do you explain that?”

He’s right. You can’t. “It’s beautiful.”

“Is this what the stars are like for you back home?”

“No. Back home it’s different.”

“Different how?”

Homesickness swamps me. As beautiful as Texas is, it’s not Australia. Somehow the stars are always brighter where you belong. “Because there’s no place like home.”

“You’re wrong.”

I turn my head and stare at Brody. He’s not looking at me. His head is tilted toward the sky, eyes riveted on the beauty above him. My gaze follows the line of his profile. From the curl of his hair to the perfect line of his nose, down to the mouth I want kissing me right this very instant.

“Home’s not a place where you live. It’s a feeling.” His hand nudges my own. An invitation. I twine my fingers with his and he squeezes them lightly. “Whether it’s where you are, like the football field, or who you’re with.” Brody turns his head, looking at me when he says that. It’s comforting because it unites us somehow, like it’s slowly becoming us against the world. “You can be anywhere, Jordan. Home will follow you if you follow your heart.”

My breath hitches from the beautiful simplicity of his words. Before I can talk myself out of it, I roll over and straddle him. My knees hug his hips, and he stares up at me from my seated position. My pulse pounds a heavy beat in the silence. Thump, thump, thump. It’s so loud in my ears I’m sure he can hear it.

“Show me,” I breathe. A gleam lights his dark eyes, and he sucks his lower lip inside his mouth. He knows what I’m asking, but I spell it out anyway. “Show me one of those wicked things.”

In a move that steals the air from my lungs, he takes both my hands and pulls me down against the broad width of his chest. I’m rolled over and underneath him before I can blink. The squirm in my hips is instinctive, the ache between my thighs relentless.

“Careful what you ask for,” Brody says roughly, every exquisite inch of his body pressing down on mine.

“Why?”

His lips curve. “Because when I give it to you, it won’t be enough.”

My fingers trail down the side of his face, grazing the firm jaw, cupping his cheek in my palm. Foreboding swamps me. I’m falling hard into uncharted territory, and all I see is a broken mess at the end. How is this going to end well for either of us?

“You’re an arrogant man, Brody Madden,” I whisper.

He brings his face to mine, so close I see the brilliant gold in his eyes, like flecks of light in the dark. “And you, Jordan Elliott, will be the woman who brings me to my knees,” he whispers against my lips.

“Show me,” I beg on a shaky breath.

Brody’s lashes lower and he presses a kiss to the corner of my mouth. I tilt my chin upwards, inviting more. Rather than take my lips like I ache for him to do, he shifts sideways and begins nipping at my jaw. His breath is a rasp when he reaches my earlobe, taking it between his teeth. A sharp pinch from his bite forces a whimper from my throat.
“More?” he asks, drawing back to look at me.

“Is that even a real question?”

Brody chuckles as I slide my hand up and around his nape, dragging his mouth down to mine. He groans and kisses me gently, once, and then twice.

“Brody,” I whisper, and he kisses me again, forcing my mouth open hard like he can’t hold himself in check anymore. My hair is loose and he fists chunks of it in both hands while his tongue rubs against mine, hot and aggressive. It’s almost too much, and when I jerk away I’m left gasping.

Brody doesn’t pause. He ducks his head to my neck, his tongue tasting its way down. He finds my pulse point and sucks. It’s fierce and my back arches involuntarily. His mouth shifts further down, moving on before he leaves a mark.

Sitting up, he takes the neckline of my dress in both hands. Five dainty buttons hold it together. A single wrench will rip the flimsy fabric in two. He pauses and looks at me, inhaling raggedly. “Jordan … I don’t want to ruin it.”

My brow furrows. I glance to the hands poised on my dress. They’re tense, veins straining under his skin. My head is lost in a fog when my gaze returns to his face. “Ruin my dress?”

Brody groans, a deep sound of regret and frustration. “Us.”

“You don’t want to ruin us?”

He draws his hands away from the neckline of my dress. “No.”

“How would you do that?”

“I don’t know. I just get this feeling I’m going to.” He shifts away, moving off me and rolling to his back. I turn my head. Brody’s gaze is back on the stars. I watch his throat work as he swallows, the pulse in his neck pounding visibly. “All I’ve ever wanted is to be the best. Whatever it takes. I’ll do anything. That’s how I’ll ruin us, Jordan. How can something so sweet survive a sentiment so dark?”

I roll to my side, holding my head in my hand. Cupping his face with the other, I nudge gently until he’s looking at me. “I won’t let you.”

Brody’s voice is urgent, his eyes fierce. “Promise me.”
I can’t shake the apprehension. It’s set in my bones and when I speak it feels like a lie. “I promise.”
