Never A Bored Rock

I have said it before and I will say it again, there is not one rock or plant in my garden that will ever be bored. I once again ripped up a few plants and rocks in my one little trouble flowerbed to make way for the gorgeous peony and a frog bird bath that hubby got me for Mothers Day.  The perfect spot in the garden was where I had put a little in ground ceramic sink/bird bath. OUT YA GO! There was also a foxglove, but it was half dead, ugly, and infested with little black aphids, so I just dug it up. GROSS! Now I am off to the hardware store to get fresh mulch and pretty it up a bit. Below are a few before and after pics to enjoy.

4.4 Stars (145 Reviews)
Genre: Mystery

FREE for a limited time

Danny Acuff, a Memphis Detective and prior Force Recon Marine, figures his life can’t get much worse.

His marriage is on life support. And he’s been forced to quit the Memphis Police Department, which means he’s just shit-canned his dreams of joining the FBI.

He’s left his great career and future dreams in a final, desperate attempt to save his marriage. Moving from Memphis to East Tennessee, he takes a detective job beneath his talented abilities. He’ll be working in a quaint, sleepy, little town, which should give him time to focus on his marriage.

Or so he thinks. It turns out, Danny couldn’t be more wrong. About saving his marriage. Or about having more time. Or how safe (and slow) he thinks this job will be.

Billy’s War: A courageous little boy in war-torn Britain triumphs against the odds
by Tony Whelpton
4.5 Stars (103 Reviews)
Genre: Literary Fiction | Historical Fiction

FREE for a limited time

Billy’s War by Tony Whelpton had me hooked instantly, and young Billy stole my heart…

What can being at war mean to a nine-year-old? Not much, you might think, but if the boy in question is a war orphan… The date was Thursday 8 May 1941. Britain had been at war with Nazi Germany for 19 months. Billy Frecknall was only nine years old, but what a character he turned out to be! Like many boys of his age, Billy to all intents and purposes no longer had a Dad, because his father had enlisted in the army in the early days of the war, and Billy and his Mum didn’t even know where he was. But that night saw the biggest air raid Billy’s home town of Nottingham had experienced – an air raid which the author experienced personally and recalls vividly – and there were many casualties, including Billy’s Mum. Billy was fortunate to survive, but life as an orphan, especially an orphan being brought up in an apparently hostile family, left a lot to be desired.
What could a little boy in that situation do? Grin and bear it? That would be the only option for many. But what if the little boy in question is resilient, resourceful, intelligent and, above all, driven? Driven by a desire which becomes an obsession, and aided by the innocence of a child of his time, which meant that he trusted everyone until he had reason to think otherwise, he sets off to find his Dad.
In the course of his quest he faces up to many obstacles that would have caused a less resourceful boy to blanch and give up, but he doesn’t – and he is blessed also with a charisma that makes most people he encounters take his side without hesitation.
If you read his story, you’ll quickly see why Billy captures so many hearts and, with all the odds apparently stacked against him, wins his war.

Genre: Science Fiction

FREE for a limited time

Bobby B is given a choice: death or the Army. His choice leads him to become a Timer – a group of soldiers so disposable that only about 10% survive a ten year tour. Because the corporations that run society value property more than life, they don’t even give them real bullets. Timers are only issued plastic flechettes so they don’t damage precious buildings and equipment. Bobby and a few other Timers join together to make their own squad, Beebi’s Basteds, which does things their own unorthodox way but still manages to keep them alive.

As the missions get harder, so do the men. They work their way up the military ranks faster than ever – giving their elite squad extra attention – good and bad. As they gear up for their biggest mission yet, none of the Basteds could imagine where their squad would end up – space.

A military science-fiction thriller that will keep you glued to the pages. Breach of Contract – The Shattered Stars is only book one in a riveting new series by accomplished author Vance Huxley.

Two Days You Never Find

For Mother’s Day hubby got me a HUGE yellow peony and a bird bath with frogs on it. I am pretty sure hubby was just telling me last week that I needed to cut back on the garden art and plant purchases. Tee hee. No. I need to stop buying plants around gift giving holidays. Of course these little treasures mean that I have to dig up one of my flowerbeds up to make room for the new guy. I am not looking forward to digging the hole for the peony. Currently it is in a three gallon pot, which doesn’t sound so bad until you realize you have to dig through adobe. Adobe is either very sticky or hard as a rock. There are only two days a year when it is tolerable to dig through, and I have never found those two days. But I will not complain. The gifts were wonderful and will be a beautiful addition to the garden. I’m just going to finish my coffee and then get to digging before it gets too hot outside. Happy Monday!

Life Champion
by Buck Brennan
4.3 Stars (18 Reviews)
Genre: Foreign Languages | Humor & Entertainment

FREE for a limited time

I always hated being an adult. I was so caught up in grown-up stuff like forgetting to pay bills, finding socks that matched, and lying about why I was late for work that I lost sight of everything that ever made me happy as a child.
I gave up on popping wheelies. I stopped ding-dong ditching. I didn’t even think spitballs or really loud farts were as funny as they used to be. I didn’t draw a penis on something in over twenty years, and I couldn’t even remember the last time I threw a party at my parent’s house when they weren’t home or had sex with a sixteen-year-old girl in the backseat of my mom’s car. By my 40th birthday, I was just a shell of that spry young man who left the loudest farts in the 5th grade.
After I graduated college I needed to find a job and move the hell out, so I could start paying my own darn bills already. At least that’s what my parents were always telling me. What my parents didn’t understand was that I was a Psychology major, and Psychology majors don’t do stuff like get good jobs or move out of their parents’ house. With a crappy college major, and not enough charm or good looks to enter the lucrative world of pharmaceutical sales like my mom and dad wanted me to, it looked like I was destined to live with my parents forever.
It took many years, but my life is finally on the right track. I healed the damaged relationship with his father, even though he could be a real jerk sometimes. I also reconnected with my inner-child. Now I am the same fun-loving, happy-go-lucky kid who used play with matches. I have dental insurance. My two kids aren’t in therapy yet, and I am even back to drawing penises on people’s stuff at work again. Let’s just say my life turned out exactly as I planned.
My inspirational story of faith, hope, and redemption will change your life forever. If you don’t believe me, my 3rd cousin from Jersey didn’t read it, and he’s still on heroin. My fat boss didn’t read it either, and he’s still a dick. My nana and pap didn’t read it. Now they are both dead. If you want to be a Life Champion like me, and you don’t want to end up dead like my nana and pap, then you need to read this book.

Boston: A Steamy Small Town Romance (Summer Nights in Last Call Book 1)
by R.V. Asher
4.2 Stars (39 Reviews)
Genre: Contemporary Fiction | Short Stories | Small Town & Rural

FREE for a limited time

Readers 18+

Mac thinks the attraction between her and Boston is merely physical. So why does it feel impossible to let him go?

If you had met me before this week, you’d have thought I was one of the most responsible, play-it-safe human beings on the planet. You’d have assumed someone juggling three jobs and managing her own business wouldn’t even have the time to get involved in messy relationships.

That’s what I thought, too.

I was wrong.

This week, I met Boston. He wears the ripped, shaggy-haired, and adorable look like he was born that way. I’m game for some harmless flirting, maybe a little more, and he definitely doesn’t have any objections. Why deny the obvious spark we have?

Because that’s all it is: a spark. The sooner I can enjoy a taste of Boston’s lean, chiseled body, the sooner this silly infatuation of mine will be over.

Then I’ll be safe.

Except that kissing Boston doesn’t snuff out that spark. Not the first time, or the second, or the third.

Instead of satisfying my curiosity, I want to know about him: why he’s dropped everything to help out his family, why he has a way of calming tense situations down, why I can’t get enough of his smile.

Why he’s making me question everything I thought I wanted.

Why I can’t stay away…
18+ due to mature content and “open-door” scenes with lots of heat.
