Have You Met My Book Baby?

Hey Nerdy Peeps! HAve you met my book baby? I honestly wasn’t sure when I would make this post and I can’t believe I’m typing these words. My book baby is done with edits! So, here is a sappy post that will be full of tears and happiness! 


Have You Met My Book Baby?

Deadly Love is ready to publish

I cried when I edited the last edit for my book baby. They weren’t sad tears, or tears of frustration, they were tears of happiness. I have put long hours and tears and frustration into this book, and I can’t believe it’s finished. 

I guess now comes the part of publishing. That means there will be a pre-order link coming soon and then a purchase link, and let me tell that this part is what I’m really nervous about. 

Why are you nervous Jessie? 

Because I am putting my book baby out there. I’m putting my dream out there. People are going to read it and I hope y’all fall in love with it. I started this journey in November of 2017 for NaNoWriMo and it took lots of edits and lots of patience to get this far. So, guess what? I’m going to share an excerpt with you!

Chapter 1

Lexi

I killed him. He was dead. I knew he was dead, I double checked. I walked over to his lifeless body and watched for his chest to rise and fall. When it didn’t move, I knew he was dead.

 The man walking towards me now said otherwise. How did this even happen? It was a clean shot, right through the heart. Then, another shot in the heart just to be sure. So, how in the hell was he walking towards my barn? I pulled my gun from my jeans. He was about 150 feet from me when I aimed and fired, only to slip on a rock and miss the shot to his head. He didn’t even flinch. In what felt like a split second, he had me pinned up against the barn wall with his hand around my throat. I then watched as he threw my gun across the field. He wasn’t cutting off my airway, but he had enough pressure to let me know he wasn’t playing.

“You missed,” he smirked. “Also, bullet-proof vests work wonders.”

“I see that,” I answered angrily. “Guess I’ll aim higher next time.” I wasn’t sure what he meant by that last comment, but I would worry about that later.

I was at a loss for words. I still couldn’t believe he was alive.

The best way not to have to marry him was to shoot him.

He was the son of a drug dealer and that was not the life I wanted. Now I was screwed, especially if they found out he was alive. I did not want to marry this man. We had nothing in common and he knew I hated his guts. All I wanted to do was live a normal life without the complications of my past. Since the bullet didn’t do its job, it looked like that might change. Unless he had other plans?


You didn’t think I would give you all of chapter one, did you? Hehe nope, you’ll have to read it to find out the rest. 

Have You Met My Book Baby?

Here’s the beautiful cover for my book baby, designed by me! I can’t wait for it to be in the public even though I am freaking out! 

My next stage is formatting and once that is done, I will have a pre-order link! I am planning a party on my Facebook page – Jessie Chick and in my reader’s group – Jessie’s Nerdy Peeps! 


This is real! I can’t believe this is actually happening and it only took nine months to get here! Stay tuned for the pre-order link and other goodies! 

Sweet Love at Bayside Book Review

Hey Nerdy Peeps! I have another review for you from the lovely Addison Cole and book 1 of the Sweet With Heat: Bayside Summers. It’s so hard to pick a favorite out of all of her books, but this one is definitely up there. (Yes I know I say that about all of her books, but they are just that good!)


Two BRAND NEW Addison Cole sweet romance releases!

Sweet Love at Bayside (Sweet with Heat: Bayside Summers Book 1) by [Cole, Addison]

NEW RELEASE……..

Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod. Bayside Summers is a series of standalone romance novels featuring fiercely loyal heroes and sassy, empowered women. They’re fun, flirty, flawed, and easy to relate to.

In Sweet Love at Bayside…
As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.

Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the rebellious half-sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.


Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years, Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.

My Review

Sweet teacher turned sexy vixen. Yep, that explains Sweet Love at Bayside perfectly. Desiree returned home just to house sit her mom’s place and work at her art gallery while she goes to “find herself.” 

Rick is taking a break from his workaholic life and keeps running into the lovely Desiree. Their attraction is undeniably adorable and I loved watching their story unfold. I mean who knew coming home would help them both find love. Addison Cole does an amazing job of making you feel like part of the story. In this love story, you feel like you’re a bystander watching these two have the best fling of the summer. 

If this is book one, I can’t wait for the rest of this series! Addison Cole is definitely my top favorite author and I can’t wait to see where she takes this series!

In Sweet Passions at Bayside…
When Emery Andrews’s best friend, Desiree, moves away, falls in love, and opens an inn all in one summer, she feels her absence like a missing limb. Until she visits over the holidays and meets sinfully hot Dean Masters, who’s as easy on the eyes as he is to talk to. After returning home, what starts as a flurry of late-night flirtations quickly turns into a deep connection and unexpected friendship. Now, months later, Desiree offers Emery a job teaching yoga at the inn. Adventurous Emery jumps at the chance and heads for Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to reunite with her BFF and her new close friend, Dean.

After months of sharing their lives, and their secrets, over video chats and phone calls, Dean’s ready to move things to the next level. The fact that Emery seems oblivious to the sparks between them and has recently put her foot down about dating friends just means he’ll have to bide his time.

When Emery finds a man in her kitchen the first morning she’s there, Dean doesn’t hesitate to move her into his guest room. Maybe now Emery will see what’s right before her eyes-although that guy she’s got a date with might be a problem.

Book Review Unshackled by Rachael Stewart

Hey Nerdy Peeps! Today I am bringing you a day late review of Unshackled by Rachael Stewart. Sit back and grab some cookies this is a hot one. 

book review Unshackled by Rachael Stewart


Book Review Unshackled by Rachael Stewart 

Unshackled is a thrilling ride of sexual awakening, love, money, and corruption…

Trying to escape the evil hold of her stepfather, Abigail becomes a player in a wildly debauched world that has her body hitting a plethora of sexual highs, while her heart clings to her new-found love and the desire to be free. But can she break away and keep it all—the money, her freedom, and the girl?

Or will she lose everything?

My Review

I was supposed to post this yesterday, but life happens and here it is! 

Let me start out by saying this is not for you youngins so do not pick it up if you are under 18. (hehe)

I loved this story from the very beginning and I could not get enough. Adi and Emma were absolutely amazing and I loved how strong they stayed throughout the book. Their love was beautiful from the very beginning and I was hooked from the first moment they met. 

book review Unshackled by Rachael Stewart

I hated Abi’s stepfather. I mean I really loathed this man. He was awful and in all honesty, I wanted him to die. *** Spoiler alert*** I mean who in their right mind hires someone to beat the pulp out of their fiancé. Oh, and Dr. Tate I hated him too. 

Now, at first I didn’t think this story was going to play out like it did, but I’m happy it did. I loved how no matter what they stuck together and fought for their love. In the end, the evil assholes got what they deserved and the two lovely ladies got what they wanted. Each other. 

Author Bio –

book review Unshackled by Rachael Stewart

Rachael Stewart adores conjuring up stories for the readers of Harlequin Mills & Boon and Deep Desires Press, with tales varying from the heart-warmingly romantic to the wildly erotic.

Despite a degree in Business Studies and spending many years in the corporate world, the desire to become an author never waned and it’s now her full-time pleasure, a dream come true. 

A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she’s not glued to her laptop, she’s wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.

So, there you have it. I apologize for it being late but it’s here and I hope you love the book just as much as I did. 

Books I want because of the cover

Hey Nerdy Peeps! I am all over Goodreads lately, so I have found four new books I want because of the cover! These book covers are amazing and one is pretty hot. 


Books I want because of the cover…

Who’s ready for a nerdgasm? I know I am! This book is amazing and the cover is hot! 

books I want because of the cover

Nerdgasm (noun): an emotional climax at the peak of intense (sometimes sexual) excitement, characterized by a deep attraction to nerdy things and/or people. 

The next book has one of my favorite flowers on the cover and I love the romantic vibe it gives off. 

books I want because of the cover

I fell for Connor Drake. I didn’t want to; I fought against it, but I fell in love with him anyway. 

I love this next cover because it looks like it’s centered around a festival and I love the confetti! 

books I want because of the cover

Meal-skipping is not an option for someone with Type 1 Diabetes, so when Julianne has a seizure in class, her father claims custody.

Now, last but certainly not least I could not leave out my favorite author and her upcoming release! All Your Perfects is coming soon and I am so fangirling over it! 

books I want because of the cover

Colleen Hoover delivers a tour de force novel about a troubled marriage and the one old forgotten promise that might be able to save it.


So, you see why I love these books and their covers! I’ve already purchased Nerdgasm and I can’t wait to get the rest. 

Book Review of The Sexy Surgeon

Hey Nerdy Peeps! Today I am bringing you a review of a sexy, steamy read that you will not want to put down. So, here we go!


The Sexy Surgeon 

This book is short but it packs a lot of sexy punches. I finished it in a day and the only part I didn’t like was the cliffhanger! 

Anna is a student who recently came gained custody of her nephew. While she was out running one icy night she slipped and twisted her ankle. That is where the sexy doctor comes in. Alex is dominating and absolutely sexy, and you will get every piece of him in this book. 

You don’t want to miss this couple. Get the book here

Blurb

A young woman finds herself in some sticky situations while fighting her feelings for the sexy, dominant man up the road.

Definitely can’t wait for the second book to make its debut! And of course, stay tuned for that review too.
