Happy New Year's

Stick Girl Book Reviews Favorite Reads of 2013

I can’t believe 2013 is almost over! Where has the time gone? I firmly believe the older we get the faster time flies .

It’s been quite the year for me! I’ve had some really happy highs (Book Bash & Naughty Mafia Signing) and I’ve had a few bumps in the road. I left my job of 15 years in the corporate world in July 2013 although it was a hard decision to make it was something I haven’t regretted at all. I took some time recently for “me” and I’m ready to become more active on my blog. I missed all of you! I love talking books! I love sharing the books that make me do my freak-outs and I love hearing what fellow readers have to say about books! As long as I have one person who follows me and wants to chat books I will continue to do this!

I’ve read 287 books in 2013. I was just shy of my Goodreads goal of 300 books to read, oh well I can try again next year  The following books I read over the past year that truly affected me one way or another have made to my Favorite Reads of 2013. These books had me……

Or totally gave me a …..

moment….Many times I thought….

And I definitely was a ….

Now some of the reads combined ALL of the above emotions but by the end of each of and every one of these reads I was …

And admittedly there were a few characters that I wished I could’ve…

There are so many books as well as authors I truly adore and compiling a list of this nature was not easy. In fact, I joked that this was the biggest stressor in my life and once I stated that I realized WOW! I’m blessed if this my stress!

I would like to thank all of the fantastic authors in our book world for sharing their dreams with all of us. Your dreams have helped me through some of my most difficult times this year. They have brought a smile to my lips, a gasp of outrage or shock (both most of the time), a screaming cry of outrage or sorrow, a sobbing stomach hurt can’t talk moment, a WTH just happened did I read that right and a ton of freaky dance moves that my children got a kick out of to me.

I would also like to thank those authors that have thought of me the past few months while I stepped away from blogging. Those of you who contacted me just to see how I was doing or say Hello, those of you who arbitrarily sent me an ARC of your latest book just to do it! There are truly no words to express how touched I was by your thoughtfulness. Those surprise emails and PM made my day!

To my FB friends and followers ~ Oh my, you have been absolutely fantastic to me! I so appreciate all the kind words, the laughs, the simply reaching out and where the heck are you PM’s. I often talk about my “book friends” with my friends and family and how much each and everyone of you mean to me. If you ever need anything you know I will always be here! I love you ALL!

I’m looking forward to 2014 and I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year’s. May you & yours be blessed with health and happiness this upcoming year. I can’t wait to “chat” books with each and every one of you!

Happy New Year's!!!!!!!!

 by Kelli McCracken


 What the Heart Takes: Soulmate Series #3
Author: Kelli McCracken
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel
Tentative Release Date: December 2013
One of my FAVORITE series long awaited third book is coming out December 2013! I absolutely adore Kelli McCracken's Soulmate Series! Yes it's PARANORMAL romance which I don't read too much of BUT this series is a MUST read! Yes we have some "hot" rock star's but there is also angst, laughs, a few tears and suspense! I can not WAIT for What the Heart Takes to be released! The cover is AWESOME (if you've read the first two books in the series, What the Heart Wants & What the Heart Needs, then you will understand this cover.

If you've been with me for awhile then you may recall that earlier this year I hosted a Rock Star Romance Week where I featured a different author for 5 days. Well, Kelli was one of those authors and you can reference my archived posts to "refresh" yourself but now it's time to learn more about What the Heart Takes.
~ Synopsis ~
Compelled by fate, will he sacrifice everything to save her?
Dylan McBride has never liked hidingfrom his fans, the press, or his father. He’s left with no other choice after his father threatens Heaven’s life. Protecting his wife and unborn child is the only thing that matters. He’d do anything to save them. Even tolerate a connection she shares with her Keeper, the man sworn to save her life. The man he used to call his friend.
Layne’s struggling with his pyrokinetic abilities, as well as accepting his role as Heaven’s Keeper. As if kissing her didn’t make things awkward enough, he learns that their connection is more complicated than he ever imagined. So complicated, it affects not only his mind, but also his soul.
Though he’s taken to his Keeper duties, Heaven senses a battle between Layne’s heart and soul. A battle that’s preventing him from accessing his abilities. There’s only one sure way to help him. Their friendship must deepen. But nothing’s ever easy, and she soon discovers there’s a thin line between love, hate, and What the Heart Takes.

You can add What the Heart Takes to your GR TBR by clicking here -> What the Heart Takes

Teaser Time ~ Here's a little tease of What the Heart Takes ~

"I’m sorry," he sighed, leaning his head against hers. "I don’t want to feel like this. I sure as hell don’t like you feeling this with me, but I—"

"Don’t," she whispered, pressing her finger to his lips. "Don’t ever apologize for loving me or for any other emotion that stems from that. I would feel the same as you, if the roles were reversed."

"No you wouldn’t, because you’re pure of heart. You love unconditionally. I’m just a jealous jerk."

"You’re not a jealous jerk. You’re just a man, trying to protect what he loves." He tried to look away, but she pressed her hands to his face, holding it in place. "Nothing will ever change the way I feel about you. Even if Layne was head-over-heels for me, he isn’t you. My connection with him is fueling his emotions. He’ll work through them."

His eyes wavered with emotion, as did their bond. "I know you love me. I’ve never questioned that, except for Aruba, and that was because of my stubbornness. I’ve come close to losing you twice because of it. I don’t want it to happen again."

"I’m not going anywhere." She grabbed his hand, placing it against her stomach. "We’re bound, Dylan. In heart, in soul, in every breath we take. I will always be yours."

His lips pressed together as he feigned a smile. "Deep down, I know you’re right. I shouldn’t let it bother me, but I can’t help it. Before you came into my life, he was my closest friend. We’ve been through a lot."

"And I complicated that." Her eyes fell to the floor, but only for a moment. His fingers slid under her chin as he nudged it upward.

"No, you completed me. You gave me the one thing I’ve searched for my entire life…you."

~ About the Author ~

When Kelli McCracken’s not writing, she’s usually looking for duct tape for her inner critic’s mouth. Or begging her characters to let her sleep. When procrastination strikes, you can find her rocking out with an air guitar or hanging out on Facebook.

"Forrest Gump's momma said it best. Life is like a box of chocolates. Mine is full of nuts. My motto: Sanity is optional, but not a requirement. My characters love waking me up in the middle of the night for long talks. They have no sense of time."

Congratulations to H.B. Heinzer for having "Bent" picked up by Montlake Publishing

New Cover

Heinzer_Bent_Final_FrontCover Add to Goodreads


If there’s one thing Julia Wilson has learned in life, it’s that you can’t push your own dreams to the background for anyone. Newly divorced, Julia returns to the hometown she once swore would never see her again. Her plan is simple; enjoy the cheap rent her friend is offering and stay just long enough to develop a plan to make her own dreams come true. It doesn't take long before Julia realizes she’s made a big mistake. Micah Anderson came closer to breaking Julia than anyone else ever had. After promising her forever, he broke her heart the week before she left for college. Now, Julia’s back in town and he’s going to have to tell her the truth about why he left her. It’s not possible to hide a twelve year old child when you live in a town of 5,000 people. Is following her dreams worth it if it means giving up on a second chance with her first love? Is trying to make a relationship work worth it if his past becomes a threat to her safety?

The air around them crackled with anticipation as they silently walked to the living room. She sat on the couch and invited him to sit next to her. Micah removed his boots and pulled her from her seat. Once he was lying on the couch, he pulled Julia down to him, and she sank in between him and the back of the couch. They fell asleep in each other’s arms, legs intertwined. Some time later, she felt Micah stir beneath her. Without hesitation, she brushed his jaw with her lips. A low groan fell from Micah’s mouth as she trailed kisses from the edge of his goatee to the tender hollow below his ear. She pulled her head back to take in the serene look on his face as helay with his eyes closed. Micah sighed again, pulling Julia onto his chest as he shifted to his back. The full body contact sentshockwaves straight to Julia’s core. It had been years since such simple movements caused this type of reaction within her. She brushed the hair from Micah’s face and continued to deliverfeatherlight kisses across his forehead, then one to the tip of his nose. Her breath caught when she saw the longing in Micah’s eyes. The moment she brought her lips to his, the passion exploded. He gently bit her lower lip before sliding the tip of his tongue to meet hers. When she didn’t resist, he allowed his tongue to explore more, tenderly sweeping around hers before he felt her gently sucking his tongue deeper into her mouth. Micah’s calloused hands reached under Julia’s shirt, caressing her sides. Her back arched as she felt his thumbs slide over the top of her cotton bra. “You’re going to have to tell me when it’s too much,” Micah groaned through staggered breaths. “I’ve waited so long to touch you again, I won’t be the one to say no.” As he placed gentle kisses at the corners of her mouth, Julia whispered, “I’m not saying no either.” She tugged at the hem of his T-shirt, needing to feel his bare skin against hers. Micah shifted their bodies so he could sit up without breaking their embrace. Before leaning back on the couch, he slid his hands up her back to unclasp her bra. Julia leaned back as he slid the straps from hershoulders, allowing him to take in the sight of her swollen breasts. Micah kissed and nipped his way down Julia’s neck to her chest until he slowly took one taut nipple into his mouth. She moaned as his tongue teased his way around the sensitive tip. In anticipation, her panties were drenched. There would be time for taking it slow later. Right now, she needed him. Julia hurriedly worked on the stud on Micah’s jeans, “Do you still carry one … in your … wallet?” she whispered between deep kisses. Micah nodded in confirmation, and Julia reached under him. Micah sat on the couch with Julia straddled across his lap. “Baby, not here …” She swallowed hard at his words. “I swear, I’ll kill you if you stop now,” Julia warned. She was past the point of no return.  

Meet H.B.

With the exception of three years spent in the middle of Nebraska, H.B. Heinzer has called southern Wisconsin home. During that time in Nebraska, she imagined one of her favorite authors living on the far western edge of the county, just south of the highway. At the time, becoming a novelist was a distant dream for her. Now, she is the author living in that location. Ironically, she later found out that same favorite author lives just outside the town HB lived in for the first eighteen years of her life. Now, HB lives in the middle of nowhere but still close enough to the city to not feel isolated. It's the perfect place to let her two kids run and explore their huge yard, teach them about the food chain as they prepare their first-ever garden and debate building a chicken coop. It's one of those dreams that is only possible thanks to the amazing opportunities that have come through writing.

Release Day Blitz!!! My Today My Way Series,  Book Two by: HJ Bellus

Release Day Blitz!!!

My Today
My Way Series, 
Book Two
by: HJ Bellus

Lacey’s Story…

Covering up pain is easy. It’s keeping it tucked away that’s hard. I’ve always needed the cover of tattoos to hide the nasty past that leached its way into me, tainting me beneath my skin. Not the shiny, trendy tats, but the ugly broken kind, meant to keep the world at bay. If they weren’t enough, then my piercings, foul mouth and crazy hair usually did the trick. Life had taught me to never follow the rules, because when you do, you get burned.
That philosophy served its purpose, until I met someone who turned my life upside down. Milly, the little hoochie, stormed into my life and changed everything with her undying faith in me, her love and her shitty coffee concoctions. I found a family in Milly, and her sexy farm boy, Cree. She accepted me without hesitation, and never ran from the dark and dangerous secrets that I harbored. My new family loved me unconditionally, with their showers of sprinkles and impromptu dance parties. 
My life was perfectly imperfect until Tripp and his crazy-ass ideas of princesses. Our relationship is what most would describe as fuel meeting fire. We were both hell bent on burning each other to the ground. Tripp, fresh out of rehab, moved in with Milly and Cree to try and make a new life for himself. Tripp, the sexy as hell, charismatic beast, soon became one of my best friends. We shared our love of ice cream and tattoos as we blazed our own path that could only lead to a beautiful train wreck. The only question left is, will we set the countryside ablaze with our hot tempers and foul mouths, or will we paint our own happy ending filled with all the gushy shit normal people crave?

on SALE !!!


We meet Lacey and Tripp in book ONE in the My Way Series,

Meet HJ Bellus:

I'm just a simple girl who loves the country life.. .oh yeah! & a good corn dog! Throw in a little Vanilla Ice, and shits bound to get crazy! Be brave...

Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I’ve ever met in my life.

He’s the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I’m drawn to him as I’ve never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he’s near, I need to remind myself that I am strong–but he is stronger. And now it’s my job to keep his body working like a perfect machine, his taut muscles primed and ready to break the bones of his next opponents . . .

But the one he’s most threatening to, now, is me.

I want him. I want him without fear. Without reservations.

Euphoria by Erin Noelle Cover Reveal

Cover Design: by Hang Le
Cover Photography : Toski Covey Photography

Before I share the synopsis of Euphoria the 3rd book in the Book Boyfriend Series I want to share a small story! This cover brought back fond memories of the Naughty Mafia Book Signing in Las Vegas! It was at this signing that I met Erin in person along with Toski Covery & Hang Le! I recall when we were talking about the photo shoot for the cover of Euphoria while sitting at the Pink Taco restaurant in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino! Boy did we have a few laughs and I'm STOKED to see the cover turned out absolutely GORGEOUS ~ but I wouldn't expect anything less from the ever talented Toski Covey & Hang Le!
I've read Metamorphosis & Ambrosia and LOVED them! If you've read this series can you guess who my book boyfriend is in this series? If you haven't read either book OH MY GOSH you need to do so like now! I promise you will have a few moments like this..........

I certainly did!  You can check out my reviews of both books on Goodreads by following these links:  Kim's Review of Metamorphosis & Kim's Review of Ambrosia ~ I can't WAIT to see what Erin plans to do to me in Euphoria especially after the way Ambrosia ended!

After a series of catastrophic misunderstandings and impulsively poor decision-making, Scarlett MacGregor finds herself once again torn between two loves, as different as they may be. Lacking proper closure with their relationship, accompanied by the overwhelming guilt for her role in his devastating downfall, Scarlett resolves to help Mason recover and reclaim his life as a budding rock star. However, now that he has finally claimed her as his, Ash Walker is bound and determined to keep her by his side, and he will go to any lengths necessary to do just that.

Mason Templeton has hit rock bottom. He’s in love with a girl whose heart and soul belong to another and he’s partied his way off of an international music tour that was supposed to be his big break. Returning home for rehab sounds like the worst possible way to start a new year, but when an unexpected friendship emerges, he begins to realize that maybe everything does happen for a reason.

Euphoria is the third and final installment of Scarlett, Ash, and Mason’s self-discovering journeys to  happiness and understanding the meaning of true love ~ the kind that begs for complete surrender.
Euphoria is set to release on December 17, 2013 and you can bet your bottom dollar that I cannot WAIT for to read this one!
