After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic 'Nicky'
Costigan -the skirt-chasing player. They don't know I've been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys.

When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it's for one-night only. That's fine with me, because I'm down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn't take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again.

He's got more walls around his heart than a military base, but I think he's as addicted to me as I am to him. He can't resist me for long. I mean, who can? Except Luke's rules exist for a reason, and when I test his limits, things get complicated. Maybe too complicated.


I absolutely loved these two men. I will admit that I wasn't sold on Costigan after the stunts he pulled in Strong Signal, the first book in the series, but wow did I ever fall for both him and his silver fox. I enjoyed seeing their interactions with each other.

They are from similar yet very different backgrounds so it was also interesting to see their interactions with their families...and how those interactions have shaped them.

I also enjoyed the brief glimpses of Garrett and Kai from Strong Signal. We saw just enough of them to make me want to revisit the book but not so much that it pulled my attention out of Fast Connection. Just like Goldilocks, it was just right.

Really, everything in this book was just right. I definitely recommend checking it out as well as Strong Signal if you haven't read it.

Santino Hassell was raised by a conservative family, but he was anything but traditional. He grew up to be a smart-mouthed, school cutting grunge kid, then a transient twenty-something, and eventually transformed into an unlikely romance author.

Santino writes queer romance that is heavily influenced by the gritty, urban landscape of New York City, and his belief that human relationships are complex and flawed, and his own life experiences.

My Wizard World Adventure

My latest adventure was attending Wizard World's Comic Con in Philadelphia earlier this month. I managed to squeeze in a lot more than I thought I'd be able to and I was so happy it worked out the way it did.

A few of the cosplayers I snapped pics of. I also saw a great Liv (iZombie) but I wasn't able to get out of line to get her picture :(

I snagged more autographs than I had planned. You only live once, right? I have autographs from Stephen Amell, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Mitch Pileggi, David Duchovny, and Stanley Tucci. I also got a signed comic from Bob Gale (co-director/writer/producer of Back to the Future), for my hubby, which was pretty cool. I was sketched as Simpson Jen by Phil Ortiz! This was especially cool because 1) Phil Ortiz!! and 2) I've always wanted to be drawn as a caricature so now I can cross that off my bucket list!

I sat in on two panels, the best being the Captain America panel with Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, and Anthony Mackie. I was lucky enough to run into Jen McLaughlin while waiting in that line. I knew she was attending the Con but never thought I'd end up seeing her. I stole borrowed the selfie from Jen's twitter feed since her pic was better than mine :-P

I normally avoid being in pics at all costs but this time I pretty much said to hell with it and just went for it. I have pics with John Russo, Mitch Pileggi, Eugene Clark, and Tom Hiddleston & Chris Hemsworth. The first 3 were unplanned which makes them that much more memorable. I also had more time to talk to them so they seemed more relatable.

My zombie loving heart was thrilled to meet John Russo, one of the men responsible for zombies as we know them, and Eugene Clark, "Big Daddy" from Land of the Dead!! Now I have to try to meet George A. Romero someday!

As for that one picture that most everyone wants to hear about (Loki & Thor), I don't have much to say about it because I'm pretty sure my mind totally blanked during the two second photo process. Seriously, I only remember waiting in line for a while, putting my bag on the table, bumping into the two guys as I attempted to get in the frame, and that's it. That's all I got. Lol. I don't think I even really looked at them or said anything to them. But hey, at least I have a decent photo to show for it. :-P

How's that for a crazy 4 days?!

Cover Reveal: Snow Fright by Amie & Bethanie Borst

The final installment of the Scarily Ever Laughter Series is here! Or, well it's on its way. October 4th is its big debut. But no need to wait until October for all the excitement! You can see the cover now! (And be sure to check out the first two books in the series, Cinderskella and Little Dead Riding Hood)!

Sarah White is gorgeous even if she is a little bit rotten. A mirror arrives on her twelfth
birthday and she thinks it's the perfect gift. But when an innocent game of laser tag gets out of hand, the mirror swallows her whole!

Sarah finds herself dead center of the the Underworld. As if repeated run-ins with Mr. Death weren't bad enough, Sarah now has to deal with her decaying flesh and sudden craving for brains. Not to mention she keeps having brain freezes, all due to the seven worms living in her head.

Of corpse, by the time Sarah escapes the Underworld, she finds her new zombie life less than appetizing. Even worse, she needs to return to the Underworld to save her friends, Cindy and Scarlet. With a poisoned apple, a crow named Raven, and a glowing necklace, Sarah's pretty sure that if she doesn't rescue her friends, she'll be a brain craving zombie forever. And that's more dead-ication than she's willing to accept

Amie Borst loves glitter, unicorns, and chocolate. But not at the same time. That would be weird. She's a PAL member of the SCBWI as well as a founding and contributing member of The Mixed-up Files...of Middle-Grade Authors, a group blog dedicated to middle-grade books. Amie lives in Virginia with her three beautiful daughters, her handsome husband, and two cute dogs named Lily and Maggie. She wishes she could travel the country in a hot pink elevator but for now, her minivan will have to do.

Bethanie Borst is 16 and the author of three books but she was only 10 years old when she wrote her first one. She enjoys reading, writing, and archery. She's also interested in paleontology and astronomy. Bethanie is fluent in both sarcasm and humor and is prepared for the zombie apocalypse and/or spontaneous combustion of the world. Because, let's face it, both of those things are totally realistic.

You can find the authors on Facebook, as well as their website.

I don't read middle grade books often but I adore these two
and can't get over how cute the covers and page illustrations are! 

I'm also tempted to reread these before Snow Fright comes out...
which is another rare thing for me. I almost never reread.
