sudden breakup, Casey Webb leaves Brooklyn, drives north and settles in a
sleepy mountain town in upstate New York. She’s convinced she’s happy
being alone—until she reads the acknowledgments in her ex-boyfriend’s hit
debut novel, thanking his new girlfriend “above all”.
Mailer is in town. The hot, young Brooklyn-bound chef offers the perfect distraction,
and soon Casey is having the best sex of her life—on a mountain, in the
lake, all over her cozy cabin. But as their weekend fling turns into
something more, the demands of Ben’s family and budding career make moving
to her idyllic town impossible.
decide what she can’t live without—her life in the mountains or the man she
wants as hers. Smart, sweet and blisteringly hot, Above All is
about getting lost…and finding yourself right where you belong.
What do you do after you fall? Evidently, you get up again and drive to the nearest secluded place you can find and set up camp. But seriously, you can’t help but fall in love with a character who just says screw it and starts fresh somewhere after ending a seven year relationship. Leaving him and everything she knows in New York behind you would think would be the hardest part. However, a day always comes when everything you think you are doing right is questioned. Despite serene views and the peaceful cabin in the woods, the day does come.
The characters are great. Both Casey and Ben are intelligent, but have their insecurities. Each of them, over time, need to build and grow to make things work. I enjoyed the age difference and it made the story all the more interesting.
The story is sweet, romantic, and has just enough sizzle to leave you satisfied by the end. The descriptive detail practically has you breathing in the crisp mountain air and smelling the coffee. It’s a great read and I’m sure you will fall in love with Casey and Ben’s story just as I did. Enjoy!

Little Girls and Their Ponies
*a literary fiction novella*
by bestselling author
for fans of Gayle Forman, Jodie Picoult, and John Green
“There was a special kind of love between a girl and her horse. It was the purest kind of love in Alice’s opinion. It’s before boys and cars and high school, when a little girl’s life is measured in delights like galloping across a field, blue ribbons, and slobbery kisses. It’s a love defined not by wins and losses, babies and mortgages, but by the moments staring into deep brown eyes and knowing in your heart that your horse understands you better than anyone else. That’s the love of a girl and her pony.”
That day on the road took everything from Alice Montgomery. Her beautiful face, her father’s keen mind, and her precious horse. One horrible accident left her trapped in a burning truck. They say she was lucky to survive, but they lied.
Nearly a year later, Alice feels the pain and sadness from that day just as fresh as when it happened. Her surviving is barely hanging on. How do you live when all you once lived for is dead and gone?
Then one day opportunity knocks on the door. It’s the chance to heal, to move on. Finally, Alice feels something besides the familiar, aching pain.
It’s time to leave the fire behind and truly live again, but Alice holds tight to the pain of that day, possibly too tight to ever let go.

Review by Dana Marie
After a tragic accident Alice must learn to pick up the pieces and heal not only physically, but mentally too. However, she is just going through the motions daily and doing it halfheartedly at best. When Matthew presents her with a group of neglected horses that are in need of a temporary home and care, will she rise to the occasion and take a chance?
This read was sweet and pulls you in. The characters were down to earth and you can relate to their story that keeps you reading straight through to the end. Speaking of the end, which is where I felt most vested in Alice’s character, you find yourself getting thrown for a loop.
This heartfelt story by Meg Collect was provided to me for an honest review. Believe me when I say that I’m happily finding my way through her books and this read you will enjoy.

She is the mother of one giant horse named Elle and two dogs named Wylla and Mandy. Her husband is a saint for putting up with her ragtag life. Her paranormal romance series, End of Days, is currently available in its entirety. Fakers, a contemporary romance, is also available.

The Duke in My Bed
I’ve found with some historical romance there are times were the story can feel like it’s scattered about the chosen time period. The writer can spend too much time overdoing the details of the period rather than the story itself. This was not the case with The Duke in my Bed. With the historical facts a hint on the horizon the amazing story behind this work of fiction takes center stage and comes to life.
I loved the characters from start to finish. Louisa and Brays story is one that leaves you waiting for that moment when they finally come together. Bray is the Duke of Drakestone who, after a deadly turn of events agrees to marry his dying friend’s sister, Louisa, before the man passes away. Louisa is strong, caring, and has only her sister’s well being on her mind. Bray is far from being ready to marry anyone and he does whatever he can to prolong and prevent having to the terms of marring Louisa.
This book captures your attention and at moments has you catching your breath. However, it’s not what the Duke does to keep from marrying her, but rather what he does to get her to marry him that will take you by surprise.
