Waiting on Wednesday #19 ~ Fisher’s Light

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

I’m eagerly waiting on:

fisher

Fisher,
I guess this is it, huh? After fourteen years together, starting a life of our own on this island, five deployments and countless letters I’ve written you through it all, I finally go out to the mailbox and see something I’ve always dreamed of: an envelope with your handwriting on it. For one moment, I actually thought you’d changed your mind, that all the awful things you said to me were just your way of coping after everything you’d been through. I was still here, Fisher. I was still here, holding my breath, waiting for you to come back even though you told me you never would. You always said you’d find your way back to me. Out of all the lies you’ve told me, this one hurts the most.

Enclosed you will find the signed divorce papers, as requested.
I hope you find what you’re looking for. I’m sorry it wasn’t me.
Lucy

To get the ending they want, Lucy and Fisher will have to go back to the beginning. Through the good and the bad, they’ll be reminded of why they always made their way back to each other, and why this time, one way or another, it will be the last time.

Expected Publication Date: March 24, 2015

Why??? Did you read the synopsis?? It sounds amazing! I’ve only read one Tara Sivec so far, but I REALLY enjoyed it, and I don’t expect anything less with this one.

What are you waiting on this week?

Happy Reading,

Alison

Review ~ Seduction & Snacks @tarasivec

Seduction & Snacks

Claire is a twenty-something, single mom that grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he’s asleep) toddler a better life.

When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make it a point that he remembers her this time.

With Carter’s undisguised shock at suddenly finding out he has a four-year-old son and Claire’s panic that her stretch marks and slim to none bedroom experience will send the man of her dreams heading for the hills, the pair will do whatever they can to get their happily ever after.

Warning: contains explicit sex, profanity and enough sarcasm to choke a horse.

My *****5 Star***** Review

Looking for a good romantic comedy, heavy on the comedy? Well, then this is the book for you! I read this one on my kindle with hubby asleep beside me, and I don’t know how I didn’t wake him up with my laughter. Normally I can contain it if I’m in bed beside him. Have you ever been caught off guard, maybe with a mouth full of soda, and something so funny and unexpected happens that you’re spewing it everywhere? Yeah, that was me with this book. I’m talking snorting here folks!

Ok, I have to comment on the romance, too. The biggest thing that stood out to me here was the lack of stupidity. Let’s face it! Most romance novels are full of one idiotic thing after another keeping the couple apart. There was none of that! Not one retarded thing! I was sooooo completely impressed with that! You get to see a natural progression of a relationship forming. It looks like there’s some of that to come with book 2, Futures & Frosting, though.

I can't dismiss 4 yr old Gavin. He really is the life of the party so often. But, then again all of the minor characters play such a great role in adding to the story. This novel is full of outrageous one-liners!

I purchased my kindle copy after a friend recommended it to me for a good laugh. I am now sharing that recommendation with all of you! I honestly can't wait to read more from Tara! I'm only sorry I waited this long to pick up one of her books!!
