My FOTD. I’m REALLY loving the COVERGIRL Bombshell Curvaceous By Lashblast Mascara that I got through my Influenster Surf’s Up Vox Box!

I went to Texas Roadhouse with the parentals and the family. It was a beautiful meal, though I did get a little drunk. They have good margaritas there.

Wordless Wednesday

Blast from the past. Ethan was throwing a fit. I walked away. He still tries the fits, but they work even less now than they did then.

I’m loving the Timehop app. I love seeing what I’ve done each year on a certain date. It’s pretty interesting. Some days are pretty boring, but some have some great insight into our lives!

Dare to Surrender: An Invitation to EDEN

CarlyDTS releasebanner

Available July 15, 2014

 DARE TO SURRENDER (Dare To Love #3) by Carly Phillips:

dare to surrender

After ending a relationship to a cheating, domineering man, Isabelle Masters takes off in her leased Mercedes, only to be arrested for grand theft and hauled to a local police station. To her surprise, she is rescued by the most unlikely person possible, Gabriel Dare, a man she’s been attracted to for far too long. Gabe offers Isabelle freedom along with an invitation to Eden, an exclusive island resort where everything and anything is possible.
Although Gabe yearns to possess Isabelle, he knows all too well he must fight his primitive need to bind her to him, and instead help bring out the independent woman she yearns to become – or risk losing her for good.
A woman who needs to run her own life. A man who needs to exert control. Can she surrender to his erotic demands without losing her sense of self once more?

I got the chance to read this before it’s release. First off, this is a first and a big honor!

I’ll be honest. I hadn’t read the first two when I got the copy. I purchased both of them, without even thinking. I’m a HUGE Carly Phillips fan. HUGE! There are authors you go back and read, re-read, and re-read over and over. This series was no exception. I blew through the books in just a few days. Three books, about 4 days.

Now to the story:

There’s a hint of slight BDSM. Nothing big, not like the Rough Rider series or similar. I enjoyed it. It was just a hint, enough to add spice to the story. If you’re not a fan, don’t let the hints turn you away.

It’s a classic romance, with that happy ending, but it’s a different spin, as Carly Phillips is known for!

I know I’m leaving out SO MUCH but I don’t want to give away everything. I could gush, but I’d completely ruin the story. Let me just put it this way: my Kindle was attached to my hand the whole time I was reading. Dinner, dishes, bed, working on the computer, etc. I couldn’t put the book down at all!
