Change Is Good

Change is good. This is something I need to remind myself occasionally. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Change in crucial for us to grow and become stronger people.


Change is also scary as hell. It makes for sleepless nights, lost appetites, and an all-the-time crushing weight of anxiety on your chest. Trust me, I know. My life has changed a lot in the last year, in the last three months even.

In less than a month I will complete my college career and graduate. I will have to apply to jobs, try to make enough money to find a decent place to live eventually, and hopefully enjoy what I’m doing.

Did I mention I’m only nineteen years old? Yeah. I spent so much of my childhood wishing I was older, and now that older has come, all I want to do is hop in a time machine and go back to about age six.


Don’t get me wrong, I am looking forward to this next chapter of my life. Renting my first apartment, getting to decorate it and live on my own, starting my first job in my field, and so many other amazing experiences I know are to come.


Another thing: I’m publishing a book. Maybe you’ve heard? It’s all I talk about, really. Twisted Fate will be my debut novel and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it. I’ve been working on this story for almost a year now; I started planning it in April 2016 and drafting it during NaNoWriMo back in November. Currently, I am in the beta process, loving the feedback I’m getting from my awesome readers. They seriously rock. I want to hug them all.

I have also booked a cover designer and look forward to working with her later this month!


I’m making great progress in the publishing journey, but I know I still have a lot of work ahead of me. I haven’t set a release date yet because honestly, I’m not totally sure how much longer getting Twisted Fate ready will take. Not to worry, the moment I know, you’ll know.

In related news, I’ve been working on the book blurb for Twisted Fate for days now and I think I’ve finally got it to a decent place thanks to my epic critique partner and writing friends. Honestly, the blurb was harder to write than the ENTIRE BOOK. Damn.


So much work has gone into this book and there is a lot to be done, but I hope you’ll all love reading it as much as I loved writing it.

Needless to say, my life just got a whole lost busier. I’m thrilled about this, but it means I need to make some changes.

I created this blog to connect with other readers and share my love of books. I still want to do this, however, I’m going to go about it in a different way. As you might know, I tend to cross-post reviews, cover reveals, etc. to my other social media pages. I also take part in as many book tours as I can because I love nothing more than supporting authors I love by helping get their work out there into the hands of people who will love it.


As I work towards publication, I will be using that time as a transitional period from book blogger to author. I am giving up my official title for a new one. This is not to say you will never read another book review from me, because you will. I love reading too much to stop talking about books. However, this blog won’t be active anymore. All book posts will be up on the blog page on my author website (which is still a work in progress itself).


Don’t panic. If you still want to see my book reviews, feel free to follow me on Twitter and Goodreads, where I will post spoiler-free reviews after each book I read. You can also follow me on Instagram, where I will post cover reveals and such for the authors I love to support!

I hope this change doesn’t disappoint anyone and that you’ll follow me along on this new journey as I publish my first novel. I can’t wait for everyone to read Twisted Fate, so stay tuned to all of my social pages for news, updates, and epic teasers!

Lastly, I’d like to thank everyone for your support. Without it I wouldn’t be where I am right now. Thank you, thank you, thank you.



Review Blitz: Royally Matched by Emma Chase


royally-matched-for-webSome men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world’s most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally,for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.



I recieved an e-ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This was my first Emma Chase book and I enjoyed it a lot. Royally Matched was a quick, easy read with a satisfying HEA ending, believable characters, and a wildly entertaining story line.

I loved getting to read the story from both Henry and Sarah’s POV’s. It gave insight into both of their lives separately before bringing them together.

Henry’s life right then was all about learning how to be King. He is the heir to the throne and must learn how to act accordingly. It’s all new to him and he’s not sure it’s what he wants. He figures one last wild, month-long party is just what he needs as a send off into the royal life, so he agrees to be a part of Matched, a television show much like The Bachelor where he must choose his future wife after a month of dates and such.

Sarah is an incredibly shy librarian who is essentially forced onto the show so her sister Penny can participate. Hmm, I wonder how that’s going to work into the story. Of course she fell for the Crown Prince. That must was obvious from the synopsis. I didn’t find the romance aspect of the story very original, but I enjoyed the story all the same.

The side characters were pretty interesting, but we didn’t get to know much about them, so they might as well have been left out of the story completely, in my opinion.

The story’s focus was on the two main characters which was fine. I found myself smiling and laughing a lot as the two of them grew closer. Their love story was sweet, light, and most definitely steamy.

When it came close to the end and Henry decided he needed to do something before he became King (no spoilers), I truly thought the story was going to end differently, in more of a tragic way than a HEA. A part of me was a little dissapointed, but I was probably more relieved that everything ended okay. Maybe it was a missed opportunity, or maybe I’m just morbid. Who knows. If you’ve read the book you might know what I’m talking about. I don’t think I was the only one who thought it could have ended differently, but for non-spoiler reasons, I won’t share what I thought was going to happen in this review.

I’m looking forward to the next book in the series. It’s on my TBR for sure!

I gave Royally Matched 4/5 stars. You can add it on Goodreads here.

I chose the main character from Anne Jolin’s Hell on Heels, an amazing indie novel about Charleston Smith, a successful, young businesswoman who despite her deep rooted issues, emerged strong and quickly became one of my favourite female characters ever. Charleston is genuine, courageous, and relatable.

A little bit about Hell on Heels:

I use people. Not in a malicious way, but in the way an addict abuses their substance of choice. People are my vice—men specifically. I crave the emotional high they give me with a unique and reckless disregard for my own well-being—eagerly floating into an unsustainable euphoria, knowing full well that after every high comes an equal, if not more powerful, plummet into a devastating abyss. But like every junkie, I crawl willingly back into the arms of my demons.

Oh, the price we pay to feel loved. We’d all sell our souls to the devil himself for that. Perhaps I have already.

They say that acknowledging that you have a problem is one of the first steps to recovery. Well, in that case, my name is Charleston Smith and I have a fucking problem.

Check out Hell on Heels on Goodreads here!

I chose Charleston for many reasons. She wasn’t one of those main characters who had faux flaws or a perfect life. She was successful, but she worked for and earned every single bit of that success. Her downfalls were raw and honest and real. I loved that about her story.

Anne Jolin’s Hell on Heels Pinterest Board

“But when the shadow of suffering climbs into my soul and each of its brutally sharp talons grips my heart, the wetness never fails to stain my pillow. I guess that’s the funny thing about pain. It has a consistency in the doling out of surprises that makes your knees buckle and your chest ache.”

When it came to the romantic relationships in her life, she didn’t want a serious relationship. After getting burned by a previous boyfriend, she was more interested in her work and personal life. She met a man through work and was casually seeing him when she ran into a former flame-the very one who hurt her and who now wanted her forgiveness. Throw in a high-handed, sexy as hell bodyguard, and you’ve got trouble.

Anne Jolin’s Hell on Heels Pinterest Board

Charleston didn’t know what she wanted, so she had it all. She didn’t tie herself to any of the three men and that was okay. Because of her past, she refused to let the men in her life define her. She defined her. And that made her the strongest, most admirable female character I’ve read.

“Its a difficult thing being queen of the king, and even if you make it to the crown, bet your ass you’ll have to fight dirty day in and day out to stay there.”

To be free.

There’s only one rule: he’s not allowed to touch the boss’s daughter.

Remember when I said that Brad never used to notice little ol’ me?

Well, Brad’s noticing me now.

In a way that’s going to get us both in trouble.

My name is Lael Ramsey and we all know how this will turn out.
